Nigel Derbyshire

poet; author; creator

An eater of cheese, drinker of red wine & ale, I am a reformed lover of people and conversation. Always adventuring into the textures of life, I occasionally remember to write some of it down.
Life is an interesting experience, full of stuff. I write about Life, the oddities of it, in an engaging, humorous, and sometimes thought provoking way.

Mindful Cornucopia

Everyone should have more poetry in their lives. It should make you think, ponder, and sometimes resolve into an emotion. Mindful Cornucopia is an expression of the boundary between my own internal reality and the external reality. Written in dense free verse, and coupled with some random thoughts, this is a genuinely original work. Consisting of 6 articles and 20 poetic pieces, I hope it will create an emotional response in you. Take the smallest of chances, and help me plant some more poetic trees

Accidental Poetry

I am a person who’s brain sometimes creates poetry and then demands that it is written down. It is OK to hate it; criticise it; laugh at it; cry at it. It is OK to re-write it in your head. All of those things are good, because they create an emotional and possibly thoughtful response. From my viewpoint of life, poetry is a raw conduit into my brain.
