A Face for Radio

Since reading out some great poetry as a lockdown activity and sharing it online I keep getting requests to do more things with microphones. So here’s a collection of some poetry readings and some older blog posts in audio format too. Make yourself a cuppa, press play and take a minute or two to breathe and think. Enjoy!

As the tagline suggests I have thoughts now and again. So it seems appropriate that I can now share them with the nation now and again as a contributor on Thought for the Day with Radio Ulster.







Risky Business
What’s Your Dream?
Two Little Words
All Shall Be Well
Is That Me?


A Year of the Tree at my Bedroom Window
Wild Geese by Mary Oliver
Missing God by Dennis O’Driscoll
Multi-tasking is not fun
Nobody’s perfect.
Pressing the snooze button one more time.
Finding awe in unexpected places.
Blink and you’ll miss it.
I love jigsaws. There, I’ve said it.
Be quiet. I’m wintering.
Prickly thorns and tinsel.
How embarrassing!
Lost by David Wagoner
Books, books and more books
Old oak trees, roots, faith.
Time ticking and birthdays.
