It feels a bit strange to be dropping in, posting a bit of poetry and curling back into my solitude, but here I am doing just that. Although I have been missing all of the amazing writing and support that comes from this strange and wonderful WP world, I am taking some much needed time to immerse myself in collections of poetry, by wonderful writers such as Steve Denehan (just started reading his collection and you should too), and trying to get inspired to write my own collection, while continuing to learn more about the craft of writing poetry.
All of that said, I can’t resist a challenge and even during my hiatus, I can’t keep myself away from Visual Verse and TLT. This month’s Visual Verse image was very provocative and brought about some gorgeous writing from some of my favorite contemporary writers. If you are interested in reading my contribution to the challenge, you can do so here.
If you haven’t participated in Visual Verse, give it a go next month. It is super fun!

Pedestals of Glass was sheer elegance. I didn’t want it to end. What a total treat a whole book of your poems would be.

Steve, you wonderful man!!!! Thank you! I may be 80 before I get a collection written, but I am determined to get there one day. When are you putting your feet into the Visual Verse pond? I know how brilliant you are with transforming images into beautiful words!

We’ll be patiently waiting because it’s sth not to be missed, like this poem.

Thank you, Susan. I am away on business again next week, “who will buy my wonderful flavours” but when I come back I’ll definitely have a look at Visual Verse. Thank you. Hope you have a great weekend.

The Peddler Of Flavours must go where the need takes him! Hope you have a successful trip. Visual Verse is open from the first to the fifteenth of every month, so you have time…..Thank you again for your kindness, Steve!

Thank you, Lovely Wulf! I struggled with this one this month, but sometimes I love those best, the ones that push me.

Doesn’t read like you struggled. Reads like it rolled from you and coated the page.

You are the best, Wulf! Thank you!
