Today I have three poems, Silent Thoughts in an Empty Churchyard, Agoraphobia and Quiet, up over at Nine Muses Poetry. Thanks to Annest Gwilym for including them 🙂
You can read them here. If you do, I would love to hear what you think to them.
And, while you’re there, why not check out the other talented poets who’ve had pieces published by Nine Muses Poetry or consider submitting something yourself. It really is a lovely publication.
Hope you’re having a great weekend 🙂
Whispers of Wisdom
Sings songs of delight
Throughout the daytime
And all through the night
By Gaia’s blessings
Written for Weekend Writing Prompt #60 – Weave
Recently I’ve been collating some of the shorter poems from here on the blog with some new ones I have been scribbling away for a poetry competition on Sweek (which is still open by the way, for any budding poets out there!).
The result is Ychydig / Little, a collection of small poems, which can be found and read for free here. There are 40 poems in all, none longer than 9 lines – I think. The poems cover many topics; nature, the moon, stars, dreams, and more besides. The Sweek stats magicians claim it will only take 4 minutes to read it from beginning to end.
And, in case you didn’t know, “ychydig” is a beautiful Welsh word (and one of my favourites) meaning “little”. Though the title is Welsh, the poems are all in English.
If you do have a spare minute – or 4 😉 – and decide to take a quick look at the collection, please let me know what you think. And, if you do enter the competition yourself, post a link to your entry in the comments below and I will gladly have a read.
Wishing you all the Brightest of Summer blessings! Or, if you’re in the southern hemisphere, Wishing you the Brightest of Winter blessings 🙂
Striving for balance
A quiet symmetry
Peace in all things
Weekend Writing Prompt # 57 – Symmetry
This is for the Weekly Tanka Prompt / Poetry Challenge, hosted by Kiwinana at Ramblings of a Writer. Below is my effort for week 94; the words are “moon” and “romance”. The prompt can be found here. Go and check it out!
In the dead of night
I sneak away to find you
A secret romance
With nothing to guide me but
Love and the light of the moon
In the dark of night they come
Singing their songs of silence
Drowning out the highlights
Of what’s gone before
The indigo hours are awash with dreams
Life forgotten, faded away
Watercolour memories are all that remain
As we walk the secret paths
Of worlds hitherto unknown
When darkness descends
I am left alone dreaming
Wishing upon stars
