Poems of a Spirit Wrestler

This website provides information and background to the poems in the eBook: Poems of a Spirit Wrestler. 

The poems cover a 35-year period from 1959 to 1994 and resemble an album of family photos of events, places and people each with a story to tell. During this time I moved from being a poet, to a journalist, to a lab technician, then a research scientist and finally an academic at a university in New Zealand in 1969. These poems are messages to myself and hopefully they will also resonate with your journey and the wrestling with your spirit.

The poems were published as an eBook in March, 2015 – ISBN: 9781483552422 and is available from all leading eBook publishers (but currently not from Amazon). including:

At present there is commentary for some of the poems. Please visit again soon — as more content is posted.
