The prompt on The Poetry School website today was to write something about technology.

Snoopers' Charter

I won’t track this

third slice of lemon cheesecake

in to any of my seven calorie counting apps

The Poetry School prompt today was to write a poem around the concept of 'what if?'. I was driving back from Cornwall with very little motivation or attention span so didn't get much past my first thought whenever I hear what if.

From Those Opening Trumpets

I will row with you

An Ode To Him Putting The Bins Out

It’s just gone midnight

Today's prompt is from The Poetry School website and was to write a poem about rituals or habits. I started writing a rambling poem about my Mum's obsession with saluting magpies and then realised I needed to get over myself because I have just as many neuroses as she...

The prompt on this morning was to write a poem about the natural world. I find nature poems really difficult because I just associate them with school and boring English lessons. Since the age of 13 I’ve read some nature poems I really like; I’m more incl...
