I’m standing at the crossroads of my life
Wondering which path before me
Is the right one
They all look the same
There is no visible sign
Separating one from the other
And yet, I must make a choice
I cannot stay here
Indecision rules my heart
Confusion clouds my mind
Anxiety rises; I don’t know what to do
Tears well up in my eyes
I’m lost and lacking direction
My life, a roadmap of mistakes
Past failures begin to take hold
When a sudden strong breeze shifts my perception:
What’s been has gone; start afresh
And that, I decide
Is what I’ll do

WWP#21 | Word Prompt: DAY AND NIGHT
Almost perfect balance between
Day and Night
Traditional markers for
Marking the beginning of autumn
Or the beginning of spring

2 light-hearted acrostic poems on the theme of Afternoon Tea for Weekend Writing Prompt #40
A Holiday Indulgence
Favourite cakes, alongside a pot of
Tea, English Breakfast, of course,
Eccles cakes, Victoria sponge, though it would be
Remiss of me
Not to mention the sandwiches and scones, the latter
Obviously served with jam and clotted cream
On second thoughts, you have the sandwiches
Never really liked them myself, I’d rather a
Toasted teacake, spread liberally with butter, while I
Enjoy the view from the window
Across the bay
A Sweet Treat List
Orange marmalade cake
Nutmeg on an egg custard tart
Apple and cinnamon muffins
Maybe I’ll copy you
It’s better than being myself
Made easier because you’ve done all the hard work
I’m just life imitating life, a
Cardboard cut out…but is that really living?
Written for Weekend Writing Prompt #10 – Mimic
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

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 🙂
