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.

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,
smooth white limbs
encased in mesh, not feathers
will she fly with me?
I 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
Hummingbird hawk moth at the dinner table
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
Best tread warily,
beneath this fragrant carpet,
sleeping fairies lie.

On sombre faces
tears plough lines on blackened cheeks
coffins fill the thoughts.
Echoes of playground laughter
in the minds of Aberfan
One thousand fireflies
cast shadows in the meadow,
all to no avail,
darkness calls for silence though
crickets chirrup on the breeze.
While winds play cello
to the rhythm of the rain
clouds with lightning dance
