Hello my name is Brian Shirra and I write under the name Scotianightpoetry. As the name suggests I am keen on poetry in all of its various forms. I began writing quite a number of years ago and that resulted from an unusual request from my children. Night after night I would read them bedtime stories and they soon tired of hearing the same old ones. To cut a long story short I started to make up stories and the children seemed to enjoy these. For some reason I never wrote them down and this often resulted in me being scolded by the children who seemed to easily recall the stories in greater detail than I. Soon I was not only writing their bedtime stories but had moved on to a great love of mine from my youth: poetry.
