Finishing WoPoWriMo

Sunday, February 28th, 2010

28 days of poetic madness and I have ended up with so many poems I hardly know what to do with them – more than the 28 by about double! I need to edit some of those I’ve already put up here and some of them I don’t think cut the mustard as it were […]

A birth A birthday A graduation A wedding A birth

These Treasures or as the mundane call them Sweet Wrappers

Friday, February 26th, 2010

Yes another wopo poem 🙂 Collected at pains Cleaned, rubbed smooth as can be Metallic dusky pink turquoise shimmer Minty green And rusty orange Transparent cohorts shine like precouse gems Collected and cleaned fingers not yet nimble glue and stick and paste turning such treasures as these into something more A card for mum, a […]

The Thermodynamics of Coffee

The wopowrimo brief was Coffee 🙂 Layered foam air in suspension Fluid tumbling over itself Brown turbulence Black with opalescent cloud Crystal saccarine twirled in chaotic dance And lastly the sediment layer – sludge

Darker are the dark places And lighter are the light ones But darker are the light places And lighter are the dark ones These domains of the Id These thought mirages Worlds of fiction Mirrors of our own

Monday, February 22nd, 2010

A childs story

Sunday, February 21st, 2010

This is the poem of a story my little girl told us, done for WoPoWriMo – it is a raw poem so feel free to leave feedback. In the Beginning The stars where bueatiful And surrene But then the moon appeared Scattering crumbs off Self in their paths They tasted and became hungry Seething with […]

City Walk

Saturday, February 20th, 2010

All you people What are you thinking? All you people Where are you going? All you people What are you doing? All you people Why are you flowing? Around.. Around me? All you people What are you seeing? All you people

The Date

Friday, February 19th, 2010

This was inspired by another one of Ella Gales fantastic pictures and is only here becuase I did it as part of WoPoWriMo – I think its far more of a song than a poem. I even have a tune in my head for it! A little walk A little talk A little flower A […]
