Description These 50 poems represent my thoughts and feelings covering approximately 40 years of my life. I was born in 1953. Some of them are very personal and may need a bit of explaining to assist the reader e.g. "K IS S" was written for my darling niece Kathryn and her husband Simon on their wedding day. "The day I went to outer space" was written as an internet mate asked for a poem about her and her backgound info was she liked cheese and red wine Poems like "The wisdom I covet" and "My love is like a bloom on the crag" were 40 and 10 years in the germinating before popping out My style of writing has always been idea, grab a pen, write a poem often in minutes but always at one sitting so to speak (it's like my brain is on fire) I hope all who read them enjoy, understand them and if not maybe have a laugh (it's a great boost to feeling well). Some of this may make some sense to people with a similar mental disorder as I have. They reflect various periods of my life although none are written when in deep depression only after with reflection. About the Author John Welsh aka Jungle John and Johnny5alive was born in 1953. He is bipolar and proud and since his diagnosis after a dark period in the mid 90's has become comfortable with his condition and manages his demons well. He calls himself a contented extrovert and hopes this comes across in his poetry. His humble but happy childhood in the countryside in Yorkshire instilled in him his love of nature and he is lanewise and has worked in conservation and for the RSPB voluntarily. He lives alone in his adopted city of Lincoln close to his beloved children and currently works in the sports and leisure business earning the money to pay for the travel he loves.
