Friday, April 30th, 2010

Well it is the end of NaPoWriMo and I have again got more than 30 poems all of which need looking at and sort and maybe cough throwing away! I really like these writing challenges they really help get me going. Anyway the blog will now be back to weekly posts 🙂

The Miltos Manetas Collection

Thursday, April 29th, 2010

One of the things I have been doing this month has been to generate art from art adn I like slightly off beat things so my husband showed me the Miltos Manetas Collection which belongs to some artist guy he sees in London. I loved the collection and decided it was perfect to use as […]

Environmental Poems

Wednesday, April 28th, 2010

I have also been mucking about with what I think of as ‘cross word’ poems and ones where you just write the sentences from the first letter – these again are very much visual and I have been attempting to combine them with a concept I came up with which is the Code Poem. I’ve […]

Putting a Face to the Name Poems

Tuesday, April 27th, 2010

I have actually been spending most of this month creating a set of visual poems which I am calling Putting a Face to the Name Poems – I literally create a face out of a persons name and it is harder than it sounds! I need to do the finials of these before I can […]

A Case for the GMC

Monday, April 26th, 2010

Pale Segmentation Acidic Wheel Fizz Discolouring Icy Dark Drink


Saturday, April 17th, 2010

Beginnings – times when the balance shifts As the chaos of annilahation settles to new order A beginning Never the beginning A wheel turning with star strewn spokes Twisting renewal into death pangs Stretching the twilight distinction Between the two A change of form A change of state Beginning? End? Transformation The same from different […]

My Ensuing Death

Friday, April 16th, 2010

My ensuing death Barks at my heels Demarnding to go for walks Asking for water With languid eyes My ensuing death Packs itself neatly Into my luguage Hoping to holiday In the sun My ensuing death Follows me to the bath Popping the bubbles Leaving a hard To clean scum My ensuing death hovers whilst […]
