Seasons Greetings part II

Hello Poetry Lovers Christmas draws nearer, and I have another seasonal treat to show you. This is by the lovely and clever poet, Sharron Green I particularly liked this one because it emphasises the splendour of the season while bringing up relevant issues. I thought this was a very clever and engaging piece. Thank youContinue reading “Seasons Greetings part II”

Seasons Greetings

Hello Poetry Lovers I guess it’s time to get seasonal and still keep my obsession with food. However, this particular food we will all be obsessed about. Yes, a lovely poem from Trisha Broomfield about those traditional mince pies and the nostalgia and memories they evoke. Rosy yet painful at times. Lovely detailed poem, Trisha,Continue reading “Seasons Greetings”

Grey Breakfast

Hello Poetry Lovers Here we are once again on my favourite subject; Food. Inspired by Trisha Broomfield’s terrific breakfast poem last week, I just had to do one of my own. I didn’t mean it to end up like it did but I feel it’s worth a read anyway. See what you think; Why isContinue reading “Grey Breakfast”

Breakfast Corner

  Hello Poetry Lovers Well, it looks like my food fixation is here to stay. I’ve even included a photo of me in an IKEA kitchen! However I would have been inspired by Trisha Broomfield’s lovely piece anyway. Simply titled Trisha’s Breakfast, these succinct words show us what a complex meal breakfast is these days.Continue reading “Breakfast Corner”

More Short forms….

Hello Poetry Lovers Here I am, back on food. I can’t leave it alone! I just wanted to feature some more fascinating short forms I learnt in Sharron Green’s class recently. As you can see, I have written a monorhyme – each line with 8 syllables, and the last word has to rhyme. I hadContinue reading “More Short forms….”

The Strambotto

Hello Poetry Lovers I thought I’d keep to the food theme this week, though this one isn’t as seasonal as the lovely Trisha’s in the last post. I recently took a course with the very talented and prolific Sharron Green on Short Forms in poetry, and thanks to her, I discovered the wonderful Strambotto –Continue reading “The Strambotto”

A Seasonal Quatcube

Hello Poetry Lovers Today we feature a very seasonal quatcube by the lovely poet, Trisha Broomfield. I couldn’t resist featuring it on here, what with stir-up Sunday and everything…. I’m still struggling with my own piece, and the talented Trisha and Sharron Green put me to shame. Thank you so much for this superb piece,Continue reading “A Seasonal Quatcube”

Triolet Hour

Hello Poetry Lovers Welcome back to one of my favourite art forms, the triolet poem. Now, the first is by an up-and-coming poet who has not kept to the rules, in fact she has downright cheated and laughed in their faces. She claims the last line simply works better like that, and who are weContinue reading “Triolet Hour”

One Minute …

Hello Poetry Lovers We’re on my favourite theme of the one minute poem, and lovely poet Trisha Broomfield has penned a very seasonal and relevant one indeed. Thank you so much for this, Trisha. This lovely poetry form can be quite addictive, and fun. Let me remind you again of the rules; 60 syllables, 3Continue reading “One Minute …”
