HELLO, POETRY LOVERS. TODAY WE’RE GOING TO GO THROUGH THE POETRY DOOR AND WE’D LOVE YOU TO JOIN US.
I HAVE FOUND A STUNNING POEM BY THE LOVELY AND TALENTED TRISHA BROOMFIELD. I’VE BEEN A GREAT ADMIRER OF HER WORK FOR SOME TIME, AND THIS ONE PARTICULARLY BLEW ME AWAY.
AND YES, TRISHA REALLY DOES LOOK AS GLAMOROUS AS THIS!
I LOVE POEMS OF EVERYDAY THINGS, ABOUT OBJECTS AND TASKS THAT’S SIMPLY PART OF OUR LIVES. CLEVER TRISHA HAS REALLY HIT THE NAIL ON THE HEAD WITH THE CHORE OF IRONING, AND HOW TENDER WE CAN FEEL ABOUT THESE RITUALS.
I HOPE YOU LIKE IT AS MUCH AS I DID
Still warming to you
The iron presses down on sheets
the size of sails.
Rain pelts the windows
my mind wanders
cocooned in our mortgaged kitchen.
I picture your face,
or try to,
catch the threads of your voice,
smell the fresh air;
think that I remember
And when I do
that after all this time
warming to you.

Wasn’t that stunning?!
So good for the soul. Keep them coming, Trisha.
Tune in same time, same channel. No flipping!
