As you might have noticed, I’ve been exploring poetry this month, doing the daily prompts for NaPoWriMo and posting my work online.  I’d just like to say thanks to everyone who’s dropped by, read and commented – it’s been great to connect!  My poems have taken me from South Georgia to North Uist.  I’ve been inspired by famous paintings, social media, my hairdresser and my harp.  And perhaps the most interesting aspect has been exploring various forms – I’ve dabbled in saphhics, an aubade, a palinode, a ‘fourteener’, a landay, a visual poem or calligram and abecedarian poetry, something which I’d never have done without these prompts.  I’ve also taken a couple of my poems out to a local reading and had a favourable response – so, who knows, there may be more!  I’m now going to have a holiday, but I’ll try to fit in the remaining poem prompts when time allows, even if it goes into May.
