Hello October

Hello Poetry Lovers

October already! And despite the mildness, we seem thrust into Autumn. Summer put on its hat and coat, without so much of a bye or leave.

And here we are, treading on conkers and watching shorter days. It used to be my favourite month, but nothing really good happens to me in it.

Anyway, I penned this piece with past Octobers in mind. There’s no real structure to it but I hope you enjoy reading it ;

Hello October, it’s me again 

Turning up like an old friend 

You’ve seen me as ;

A timid child

Spotty teenager 

Lovesick gal 

Newly wed 

Heavily pregnant

Harassed Mum 

School runner 

And a far older woman than I ever intended to be. 

You’ve seen me be;

Tired 

Grumpy 

Disgruntled

Dismantled 

Disenchanted

Incomplete

Disjoined 

Disorientated 

Miserable 

You’ve seen me in 

Plimsolls

Miniskirts

Hot pants 

Platform boots 

Stilettos 

Flares

Smocks 

Maxis 

Only one thing has been consistent between us – I’m always in a coat

Now, I’m sure some of you Poetry Lovers will have a very good poem about this particular month. Send them on a postcard and I will put them up in lights on here…

Thank you so much for reading, PL’s. We’ll be back real soon……
