As I mentioned in the previous post on this blog, dated January 1st 2012, this blog will now be used for other writing on Books, Literature, Politics, Sport (particularly football, tennis and boxing) and bits of creative writing. You can now find all cinematic concerns at . What follows below is a short piece of poetry from 2009. 

After the Living


In the dark wood Night turned back last

And those whom had peopled came past,

Full gone to water and sand seeded sky,

As must all whom breathe and burn and die.


The waters catch cold and run here –

Green of mind, fine, worn and tinged sincere.


Many islets are to pictures presently disposed,

Till the blank of nocturnal blindness consoles.
