Author of ‘Painting For Lemonade‘
SJ Howarth was born in the north of England in the 1970s.
Since then life has taken him here and there – downward, landward, upward, seaward and back again.
After many years of excess and abandon, he can now be found seeking a simpler inspiration outdoors, enjoying woodland, water, sunsets and night-time.
Indoors he enjoys good fresh coffee, the company of his irascible, aggressively affectionate rescue cat and a wry sense of humour, usually with reggae-dub-ska-punk soundtrack.
the newly turned earth
the boat lake is black
with sleeping water
dream borne hulls
huddle at the shaded heart
of the lake”
