James Welsh – Bio
James Welsh (pen name) is a writer and poet living in central England.
His short form poetry began as an effort to learn to create vivid imagery in just a few words, and, while it helped to improved all types of writings – James has fallen in love with this quiet form of poetry.
James Welsh’s poems are an attempt to discover simplicity in complexity, and to allow both his mind, and that of his readers to wonder. He continues to write daily.

I recall that day
your hand guiding mine
the breath in my lungs
given delicate form
