“my notepad and fingers (& metaphored thoughts of him)
drown in a half-glass of rosé”
(through rose-tinted glasses/plenty more/Drowning one’s clichés)

I’m delighted to celebrate the bank holiday with a poem on Kumquat Poetry experimental webzine. Part (lost/failed) love story/life cliché, part ars poetica mixed in with some reflective word play to (hopefully!) create an interesting verbal spritzer – at least that, or something like that, is the theory. And yes, I may also be celebrating the bank holiday with a half-glass of rosé later! 😉

This week I’ve also added a new hypertext poem to my selection of 11 An Eyeful of Words interactive poetry-art experiences which you can check out here.

Meanwhile, much of the weekend has taken the form of a campfire clan gathering over in the beautiful Herefordshire countryside. Besides chopping wood, sunshine, marshmallows and birdsong for breakfast, I also managed to snatch a few pix!



Early morning


Marshmallow smoke


Playing with shadows


Mystical mist


The view looking back


Just before the heavens open!

Happy bank holiday everyone, hope you’ve had a good one! 🙂
