Colin's debut collection of poems


Ripples: a collection of poetry

"I’d rather be a thousand ripples,

or even just the one,

than a single drop in a dreary abyss

drowned; forever gone."

Ripples is an exploration of the effect and influence we have on each other–sometimes to build, at other times to break–as we share the world around us. Freedom and fate are woven together like the interplay between waves of our greatest oceans.

“History counts for nothing if it betrays a future,

even with the beauty and miracle of life.”

This collection brings together poems written in a range of styles and forms, including free verse, haiku, and a number of experimental rhythmic and rhyming structures.  


This is my debut collection of poems and is already being enjoyed by readers of all ages and backgrounds. Some of the poetry is challenging, some - I have been told - is very moving. There even a few poems about life with a touch of humour.

Ripples is available on Amazon as an ebook for just £1.99 and paperback for just £3.99. Alternatively, order one directly and you could have your copy signed, too.
