National Poetry Day

Today is National Poetry Day and events are being held everywhere to celebrate. More information here.

This year’s theme is ‘Games’.

Heres a poem of mine from 2009

TRIGGER

Mousetrap
Scrabble
Day unravelled
Dot Dot Dot

Fuse burning
Dynamite
Explosion
Under water
Tidal wave of
Emotion
Rage
Crashing through the kitchen
All Hope washed away

Not a game of
Risk
Not a game of
Life

Awareness regained
Dragged to the surface all
Puffy and waterlogged
Two hugs, one kiss of life
Be here, now
Keep going.
