It’s the perfect Halloween gift…to make ME smile, anyway!
My box-fresh e-book, Haiku of the Dead has landed… containing pithy advice on surviving the rise of the zombies… and top tips like this!
Coming on Amazon TOMORROW …A Halloween treat… It’s my new book, HAIKU OF THE DEAD!
Further details to follow… very exciting!
I attended a poetry workshop on Saturday, as part of the Nottingham Poetry Festival. I’m barely home this week for going to various poetry gigs (sadly not performing, but am hoping that will come), and consider myself blessed to live in such a poetry-hungry city!
At this workshop, I wrote a number of poems that will eventually see the light of day on this blog. This was written for the opening exercise, to write a tanka to introduce ourselves. I wrote two… the second explains why!
Really a rhymer
Who then got hooked on haiku.
I’ve been clean for a year.
Damn! I’m back on the wagon!
I love a challenge.
Fitting these words in
Gives me great satisfaction,
When the syllables all fit
It will not be sketched.
It surrounds all those I love,
The shape of my heart.

Wolf tastes midnight air
Prowling kingdom of shadows
Savouring the kill

Ghosting among you
I wear normality’s mask
… But it is slipping

Formed under pressure
Two bodies coalescing
Through fire, re-born
