A compassionate letter from an imaginary friend.

Evening everyone, I realise it’s been a week since I last posted. Things got a bit overwhelming in the last week and I had a lot going on so didn’t really get round to the whole blogging thing.

Playing around with Haikus

Last night, I had a massive surge of inspiration. I don’t know what came over me, but some positive conversation and contemplating over feelings and thoughts made me start experimenting and writing down a lot of haikus. I learned about Haikus in my poetry workshop last weekend. I’d never written one before. The concept isContinue reading “Playing around with Haikus”

A New Poem For Monday…

20 Things I learned in 2020…

2020 was an interesting year for everyone to say the least. Across the globe we saw some very harsh realities, we witnessed a horrible pandemic that felt more like the start of a sci-fi zombie flick then it did reality, we saw horrific stories and videos of how black people are still being treated poorlyContinue reading “20 Things I learned in 2020…”
