This week our feature poet is Gary Clarke. I hope you enjoy his wonderful poetry as much as we do. Literary Revelations wishes you a great week ahead and thanks you for your constant support.
Gary is a student of life, as he stumbles across lessons each and every day. Luckily situated so close to the North Sea in the Highlands of Scotland means that he not only gets to witness some beautiful winters, but also explore a rustic and scenic coastline, which fuels his interest in nature-themed photography and blogging about the local environment.
If you ask him what he does for a living, he’ll bore you with anecdotes about when he worked in music journalism interviewing lots of rock music artists, or the time he was a Systems Analyst helping others fix their internet woes through telephony-based conversations.
This poet and enthusiastic thinker may also share his reflections on when he supported adults with learning difficulties with every aspect of life, or the time he learned different methods of folding serviettes as a Waiter/Kitchen Assistant. At this point in his life though, he currently works in a hospital which is both rewarding and challenging.
Poetry is a new pursuit to him. He finds therapeutic and stimulating, after accidentally stumbling across a talented poetry and writing community via social media in 2021. With their support and encouragement, Gary continues to develop his craft of rhyme and meaning.
Life’s a journey, not a destination.

I was struck by this “If you ask him what he does for a living, he’ll bore you with anecdotes about when he worked in music journalism interviewing lots of rock music artists, or the time he was a Systems Analyst helping others fix their internet woes through telephony-based conversations. ”
