Hello Poetry Lovers
Welcome to the Poetry hour – well, five minutes really. Mrs Slagg is holding auditions for her open mic poetry spots.
So first, we have a lovely and vivid nonet from the stunning Trisha Broomfield
Followed by a haiku from the amazing Anne Warrington. Firstly we have Trisha’s piece
Sunshine shines alone and warms my bones
puddles show a scurrying breeze
snow sits hard on moss and lawn
washing on the line sways
thoughts drift aimlessly
a lazy day
on my own

So lovely, Trisha. You blew the Slagg’s away with that one.
Now, here is Anne’s beautiful haiku piece –
Pedal-pushing in the square
High on cloud nine.
Anne Warrington 2021
Weren’t they both fabulous ?! I’m sure both poets passed that audition with flying colours! Mrs Slagg will get on the phone to them today (from a call box).
Thanks for tuning in, Poetry Lovers, and if you’d like to take the floor for Mrs Slagg, do send your poems in.
That could be you reading in that hallowed cafe, and if you’re not famous there, you’re not famous anywhere!
