So sad

Having ceased to write on WordPress I was relying on another site, I refer of course to poem pigeon, a solely poetry vehicle but sadly they have sent all of their subscribers an email confirming the closure of their website. Such sad news for all the new British talent who were used to showcasing their work on this little known but very readable window. So sad.

The reason why I'm giving this up

Having recently needed to change to some sort of freaky editor I have realised that there is no longer a way I can continue using this site. I assume that the powers that be consider that the new editor is the be-all and end-all of easier word-processing formats. They are wrong and I wish all my friends and followers, “Good Luck,” in the future and I hope you enjoy a great festive season.

she turns with a smile,

inviting,

smooth white limbs

encased in mesh, not feathers

will she fly with me?

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #53

ob-boats.jpgI asked my single mum, neighbour, Denise

to come with me on my boat out to sea

as the temperature rose

she stripped off all her clothes

but sadly her dark hair stretched right down to her knees

Sammiscribbles Weekend Writing Prompt #130 ‘Ineffable.’

Our prompt this week is that we may compose

using just a few lines of verse or piece of prose

a difficult task if when looked up you may all agree

if you know the meanings of words just like me

so you can imagine my distress

choosing lines for my own WordPress blog

so I don’t know if I am capable

in verse to express the meaning of ineffable

Harrington (13)Best tread warily,

beneath this fragrant carpet,

sleeping fairies lie.

tears plough lines on blackened cheeks

coffins fill the thoughts.

Echoes of playground laughter

in the minds of Aberfan

Colleen’s Weekly Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge . #Tanka ~Dreamland

One thousand fireflies

cast shadows in the meadow,

all to no avail,

darkness calls for silence though

crickets chirrup on the breeze.

Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille, October 2nd 2019, stormy weather

While winds play cello

to the rhythm of the rain

clouds with lightning dance
