Based in Berkshire, England
Welcome to my website ! ' POETRY FROM TOM MCGREEVY. ' I am an Author and Poet. Writing POETRY is a passion of mine. You can view samples of my work by clicking on the various drop down menu's
All poems on this site are created and authored by myself, and all work on this site is 'copyright', so please contact me if you wish to use them for any purpose.
I am also an Administrator for FORCES POETRY/FORCES STORIES/FLOW FOR ALL/FLOWS FORUM, a not-for-profit Website/Forum for serving and ex-serving members of Armed Forces anywhere in the World.
For news on the FORCES POETRY book, ' Voices of the Poppies ', published in November 2008, please view page ' Forces Poetry book '
I served 13 years in the 'British Armed Forces (Army), operating in such remote places as ' The Jungles of Belize, Central America '. ' Germany ', ' Denmark ', ' France ',' Belgium,' ' Northern Ireland ', ' The Falkland Islands ', ' Cyprus ', ' England ', and ' Rhodesia/Zimbabwe. Followed by a further couple of years in a T.A. Unit. ', Hence the Military slant to a lot of my poetry.
I hope you enjoy browsing through my poems, Some Military, some sad, some humour, some love, and some written from other peoples shoes.
( But most from my Own ! )
The Cancer poems were written from personal experience, as I have 'Prostate Cancer', but following Major Surgery, I am now thankfully in 'Remission' ( Sounds like time off for good behaviour ! )
I now live with my Wife Paula, and our Disabled Son, in 'Berkshire, England, not far from ' Windsor Castle ' , ' Legoland '. and ' Thorpe Park ' ( Altogether we have 4 Sons, 3 cats, and a Cheese plant )
I include a selection of images of me below for your enjoyment, ( Try clicking on some images to view full-size )
