NaPoWriMo Day 21

Eggless This was an eggless Easter Sunday  Purchased, stored and Cabdury laid The hunt was planned yet never played No boxes smashed, no foil unwrapped, no squared shells cracked, no sweet creme lapped Dad’s getting fat, treats sugar like smack Gaze in desire, determined not to snap Asian mum prefers savoury snacks No longer pretends … More NaPoWriMo Day 21

Belated Day 20 Yesterday’s poem was going to be a slow one Yesterday’s poem was going to be fun Yesterday’s poem was going to touch places no other poem or poet had ever gone It was going feature rhymes so obscure and original Garner praise from the globe unconditional  Open up degrees Re-write the rule … More NaPoWriMo Day 20

NaPoWriMo Day 13

Watchers All in all you’re not just another brick in the wall nor a cog in a machine You’re an intricate case, a unique face the likes of which have never been seen  Not one other being, no life form born your time or location with your name stationed No other soul holds the same … More NaPoWriMo Day 13
