Lacework Light and Dark

Poems and pictures, prose, ideas and artwork from me to you, one at a time.


I’m a science teacher by day and a photographer and poet by night, week-end and in the long holidays. I also run a blog for teachers at

By sharing one picture-poem every few days, I hope to give you a something surprising, beautiful, or just a moment of peace to start your day with.

All photographs and artwork are mine unless otherwise stated.

If you wish to use the art work and/or the poems, please contact me for permission at
