Thinking

Monday, January 20th, 2014

Need the meaning, hope is fleeting. Eating, drinking, sinking, still breathing. On the edge seething, enveloped just thinking.

Political Moments

Dark twisted moments The political decision Opens the flood gates And WHOOSH Down we all go The Slippery Slope

Deadlines

Saturday, January 18th, 2014

Being the Judge

Friday, January 17th, 2014

I am very excited to have been asked to judge the regional part of a national schools poetry competition this year in March. This was a lovely event last year and the children where amazing. I will also once more be running the World Poetry Writing Month challenge in February. This is a month of […]
