Poetry and short stories

This area is intended for people to have their say through poetry, stories (tall tales or true), or reflections on a part of history that changed so many lives from around the globe. I started off with some musings of my own, and the site has gradually grown to include items from people with varying backgrounds, ages, and cultural diversities.

If you have a poem or short story that you would like to see included here please email it to me. Just click on the book. Remember that it must be your own work, as your name is the one that goes after it. If  you would like me to include a link to your own site through your name then I am quite happy to do so. If there is something you have read on another person's site you would like to see included here then feel free to ask them to email it to me. The worst they can do is say no :)

There is no way to post an article directly to this or any other page on the site It must be emailed to me first for approval.

Please be aware though that I do reserve the right to decide what is included here, and items of a pornographic nature or those intended to incite racial or other hatred won't even get a look in.
