Poem By Alan Whitfield. Today i met a man


Today I met a man

 

Today I met a man.
I didn’t know him,
where he come from,
or who he was.

 

He told me a tale.
On an epic scale
that focused my mind’s eye to my heart.

 

It started off with an engine.
Like the parachutes
he talked of, the story unfolded
Bring two sides distant
close from apart

 

I listened,
I watched,
Hung on every breath
like a ravine

 

As the story resides
I got a warm feeling inside.
That distance is never
as far as it seems…

Hello! I get about a bit so here about me first. I am a visual artist and poet who works within the context of fine art. My work is grounded in documentary, exploring the inner beauty of everyday life through various lens based media. Notions of nostalgia and social commentary are present, but from a definite northern working class perspective. Instinctively I exploring the townscapes of North Wales and the North West, often producing work that reflects the every day minutiae of life.
