Breathe In

I'm here on a Friday to celebrate what has been a successful month for this little site. Starting on Monday is the very real possibility of multiple posts a day and a really rather packed schedule all the way until Christmas. Having already pre-warned you about Think-Tober, I went away and made better graphics, and … Continue reading Breathe In

One Day Like This

This year, poetry for me became something more than dusty pages and old blokes in church halls. When terror ripped through the lives of people who never asked for a war, killing the truest, most innocent lives, poetry galvanised an entire Community. One bloke stood up and, for a moment, everybody listened to his words and … Continue reading One Day Like This

Book of the Month :: Throw 6 to Start

Whilst the logo of the day is … Continue reading All the Small Things

Once Upon a Time :: Haiku and Micropoetry

Okay, so I have a confession to make: when this was published via Twitter, I forgot the last part of the micropoetry. It has now been replaced and is back in its rightful space. I've been following the compelling World War 2 as it happens Twitter feed and this was the direct inspiration for these … Continue reading Once Upon a Time :: Haiku and Micropoetry
