My handle is Sid Bear. Sid after Sidney, my late Dad, and Bear which is a bastardised term which has been stretched beyond its limits and basically is a big cuddly gay bloke (not my words). I love the challenge of crafting something new with words. I love alliteration and assonance and passion fruit. I’m open to all styles. I was quite prolific for a couple of years while I was a carer for my Mom and I often found myself with many periods of reflection and introspection to draw from and many hours to fill while I navel-gazed in my room with my rescue dog Tiger. It was perfect for poetry.
