A blog where I talk about the reading, writing,
post the Tuesday Poem
and, sometimes, show some knitting.

First April Poem
I've decided not to always post whole poems here, but rather to always, the following day, post a taster of what I've done. Sometimes this will be the whole poem, sometimes a few lines, sometimes even the impulse or exercise behind them.
Yesterday, from a poem called 'W is for Wings':
In my mother's garden,
the watering can abandoned
beside a tree we agreed to cut down,
a gardenia dwarfed by some nondescript shrub
(metaphor for many women's lives)
only I see - if I close my eyes -
