I'm a born and bred Bristolian and remain proud of my working class origins, having lived here my whole life, I feel better for the experience.
I was born during the post war baby boom, the eldest of six siblings. My 30 plus year marriage to Lorraine has been rewarded with three children, all of whom have grown into wonderful people, who are making their mark on this world of ours. So far our children, have blessed us with two amazing grandchildren.
My writing experience in terms of published work is limited to just two short stories, both of which were self published rather quickly during a critical health scare, to ensure I'd achieved one of my bucket list items.
However, after being inspired by my daughter's writing at school I began writing on and off some years ago, seeking to complete a rather long novel based on fact, fiction and fantasy, and will do so one day.
During this same period of time developed a passion for 'Acrostic Poetry', when first writing this way I saw it more as a mental challenge, having no idea it was a recognised form of poetry I even christened it with a name of my own choosing, 'Anogramic Poetry', and to this day it is still my preference.
As it's one of my first poems and a personal favourite, I have chosen to begin my Whattpad adventure with, 'Space, Time & It's Origin' .
I also have a leaning toward 'Spiritually' based poetry, something which was originally driven by my wife's interest in spiritualism. However, it has subsequently developed into an expressive outlet, for my more philosophical thoughts, like those expressed in this poem.
I think that's enough for now, take care Steve
