line breaks

I awoke unable to remember
how or why we write poems

or make these line breaks

alerting us to another way
of reading and seeing

now I remember

rainwater collecting in buckets
shone like something holy

  1. Old friends never really disappear. They just move to the shadows. It is up to us to draw them back into the light. So here I am, asking you to let me know you are alright and hoping you will please us further with your work.

    1. Thank you very much for your kind message oldmainer. I’m ok thanks and hope you are too. Unfortunately my work seems to have abandoned me of late. I have been through this before and know you cannot force it. I hope it returns as I am quite lost without it. I take solace and encouragement in your thoughtful words though, which are greatly appreciated.
