Jack Byrne

From Wicklow Ireland

I am a writer who loves to write poetry and short stories I live in Co. Wicklow Ireland with my wife Valerie , and am retired The poetry I write is mostly traditional style rhyme, also I'm very interested in the Japanese short form genre of Tanka, Haiku/Senryu/ haibun. I have been published quite a number of times in all these genres in Ireland, GB, USA.

What inspires me?

Nature, life events,famous people

My best line

Out of the dark night comes my soul to seek a new day dawning, for I am loved with living to do at the edge of the woods is morning.
