Sometimes I Fly is a perceptive view of a man viewing the world through a distorted lens. On the one hand limited by what he can do and where he can go, but on the other, freed to see things as they are, not as we would like them to be.
The remarkable thing, reading these poems, is how easy it is to be there with Tim, experiencing what he is seeing, emphasising with his feelings, and knowing that he is right even though our experience and perceptions are different. These poems will change the reader, broaden their understanding and inspire.
Tim Goldthorpe’s poems are well structured and insightful. He writes with courage and is not afraid to approach subjects that need to be brought out into the open. In his more quirky moments, there is a deftness and lightness of touch. His words could be song lyrics; he writes of anguish but a universe that is ultimately harmonious. Reading Tim’s poems is like looking at stars through a kaleidoscope
