February is Post-It Note Poetry Month. Post a poem every day – just big enough to fit on a post-it…

Twice tasted

This month is Post-it Note Poetry Month, a very informal challenge designed to be a fun way to get people writing. There is no pressure, just an invite to write something small enough to fit on a post-it, everyday for the month. 

I have joined in for the past 2 years but this year has proved difficult and I don’t quite know why. There is a lot going on at the moment and my writing has suffered. Not that I am a serious writer, in that I don’t make a living at it, it’s my hobby. I do it for pleasure and the pleasure hasn’t been there lately. 

So I have not managed even a bad post-it poem everyday. However, I did manage this one inspired by a rosehip I spotted still clinging on against the odds in February.

It seemed a good fit for the Daily Post Photo Challenge.

Threadbare

The loose thread if
Left to itself can
Unravel
And leave you
Standing exposed in
A tangled web

Early Morning

Sunlight skims across fields
Frosted white like snowfall
And bounces back laser light
From distant windows in
Blinding illumination.

Fragile

Tiny and sharp
Precise.
Your word hits home.
Rupturing the
taut-stretched skin
Of my happiness.

Sunday mornings…

Sunday mornings I rise late,
To the click, clack,
crick of joints.
Like a human xylophone
slightly out of tune
and lacking rhythm.

Presence

Silence more shrill than any scream
Presses against me
Closer than any crowd
Your absence oppresses.

Day #8

Puzzlement
followed by sickening lurch
As boot meets spectacles
Meets floor…
