I've decided to put some of my poetry on my blog instead of banging on about my books (even though they are worth a read!) anyway every now and then I will publish a poem I have written here so keep checking back.

Also regarding my new book. I have finished writing it and I hope to publish it towards the end of the year, hopefully September. I'll let you know the title soon and I'll post some teasers in due course.

Watch this space!

A poem - My Walls

Rainbows at Night - The Poems of Clive Culverhouse

The thing about poems, in my opinion, is that they’re intimate. Intimate to the poet. They’re like a window into how the poet is feeling and viewing things around him. A little slice of the poet’s outlook on life at the time of writing. So, to me, it’s almost like reading a diary or being trusted with a confidence. Poems are permission into that intimacy between writer and reader.

I’ve made no secret that I have suffered mental illness; I’ve been to the murky depths of depression and arguably I still walk the fine line between ok and not ok. So here’s one of my poems to suggest an insight and a brief glimpse into a little intimacy.

My Walls

These walls are my sanctuary

guarding me, looking after me

stopping me, restraining me

my prison but my safety

where I hide

where I rule

a brick cloak of invisibility

You can’t come in unless I let you in

I’m the master here

the prisoner here

the one who is suffering here

the one who is surviving here

A barrier, a security

my light house, my castle keep

an obstacle, a safety net

These are my walls

where I live

where I stay

Within these walls I’m stopping here

Sparkling magical fantasy adventure

Check out the new blurb

The Legend Of Heliodor: The Crystal Spirits 

 Imagine growing up with an ancient sacred legend and then you find out you are IN it!!!
From the moment he was born, they knew Kyan was different – and special – all the crystals of the land flashed into life with spectacular colour. As Kyan grew, he learnt of an ancient legend, sacred to his people and then one day he discovered he was part of that legend and his life was brutally torn apart; things changed forever.
Something terrible, something unimaginable had awakened after a thousand years of rest and was going to destroy the world he knew.
It was clear Kyan had a special gift with the crystals, he had learnt their magic well, Professor Larimar had seen to that, but did he have what was needed? He would have to use every ounce of knowledge and skill because not everything – or everyone - in his world was who they seemed.
