Poetry Readings: Listen Now

Give your tired eyes a rest, take a long bath, go for a drive in the countryside and fill your ears…

Below is a playlist of 30 of my poems read aloud. Some have been injected with added ‘atmosphere’ and a couple are set to music. If you’ve not listened before, maybe now’s the time? If you have, there are a couple of new recordings dotted throughout. It’s free to listen. If you make it to the end, there’s also an hour-long interview discussing writing, music and fountain pens…

What better way to spend the next hour of your life… 😉

Thanks for listening.

P.S. If anyone is interested in collaborating on setting words to music (and can provide the music to accompany my words) please get in touch! tom.alex.write@gmail.com

    1. I’m so glad you chose that line. It pretty much sums up the whole poem. I don’t normal write rhyme so this one was a bit of a stretch for me and it’s extra rewarding to know you enjoyed it. Thanks for listening! 🙂

      1. You’re welcome, it really was my pleasure. I reread my previous comment, and feel concerned it sounded rude to say ‘unexpectedly’. I just meant that I thought I’d listen a little bit, but that once I started listening I didn’t want to turn it off because I got drawn in. Sorry!

      2. Aww, thanks. I think I knew what you meant. To be honest it’s a very long poem and I’m grateful to anyone who makes it to the end (either reading or listening) 🙂 I’m glad it sucked you in. And even more so that you told me, it’s these little encouragements which give me the inspiration to keep going and try a bit harder with each one.
