Welcome to my writing website.

I can be described in many ways.  I write, prose and poetry and educational materials.  I teach and ride a large motorcycle. I am a father to two wonderful grown up children.  I am married to the most beautiful woman in the world and I am a Christian.

These things that I am are not put in order of priority but many of them you will find evidence of them in my writing.

Below find one of my couple of my poems.  More will follow on this site.  All the best  F

A view from the hills.


To deify,

To glorify,

To magnify,

Your power.


Standing high,

Watching Worcestershire wind by

My hilltop solitude,

My soul will sigh

A heartfelt prayful cry

Of gratitude.


Thank you for the view out there.

Thank you for the time to bear

The beauty of this hour.

Thank you for the moments where

I know your love and Godly care

And feel your mighty power.


To deify,

To glorify,

To magnify,

Your power.  


Climbing


I climbed to the top of the hill today,

The top of the Malvern hill.

I scrambled and gambled, and pulled until,

I could see the top was higher still,

But I climbed to the top of the hill today,

The top of the Malvern hill.


But I climbed to the top of the hill today,

The top of the Malvern hill.

I passed the place of the burnt black grass,

And I climbed, and I climbed, until at last,

I reached the top of the hill today,

The top of the Malvern hill.


God’s at the top of the hill, you know,

The top of the Malvern hill.

I stood alone with the wind in my hair,

And I had the time to stand and stare,

And I knew he was right, so I said it in prayer,

As I stood at the top of the hill today,

At the top of the Malvern hill.
