Happy National Poetry Day peeps.
Am reading at Post Box Poets & Pennings at 5pm down in Chorlton, it looks like it’s going to have a great atmosphere with really varied voices. Good times!
Me and Sarah Logan did some poeming t’other day and here’s an extract from what I wrote:
These songs have crawled from rocks
they’ve been there since Earth began
it’s slow-spin remedy for
our human keeping.
I know of one who listens still
deep beneath the forgotten river
where we would leave our burdened lives
and walk away, our tread the lighter.
National Poetry Day Theme: water, water, everywhere….
