Hello, welcome and this is me… Martin Shone, and I live in Wolverhampton, England.
Thanks for dropping by.
Feel free to look around. You’ll find short stories, photography, some rambles about life, and little snippets of me, but mostly you’ll find poetry.
I prefer writing in freeverse, but also like composing in haiku.
I write on a wide variety of subjects including Nature, Humanity, Spirit, Sensuality, Passion, Love, Soul, Romance, Freedom & Peace
(and sometimes they may be of a more adult nature)
I write whatever I’m feeling or whatever I’m given.
I write for me, but they are also for you so I hope you enjoy them.
Please translate these poems in any way you feel
read them as if they are yours
see in them whatever you want
make of them what you will.
I have started to record myself on video reading my poems and I’m uploading them to YouTube. Here is my YouTube channel
I’m also an amateur photographer, I shoot what makes me smile or what makes me think. I don’t alter any of my photographs, they come straight from the camera to here. I don’t use a tripod as I like to travel light so I use trees, fences or simply hold my breath and pray :) I’ll put the name of the camera in the tags, but mostly I use a FujiFilm Finepix HS20 EXR.
I have self-published a little book of my thoughts called Silence Happens: Little Thoughts of Life, Nature, Peace, Freedom & Love and it is available to buy from Lulu.com or Amazon
