I’m doing this again. Last year I quite enjoyed the process of creating a brand new poem every day in April so have decided to do it again.
Here’s my rules for this year
Last year I didn’t post all the poems I wrote. This year I’m going all in. It’s going to be interesting as one day isn’t much time to edit.
Here’s the first:
We have hibernated in woollen throws
Slept for months wrapped in frayed
dressing gowns, underneath so many
King size thirteen tog duvets.
We shuttered the vertical blinds
And let winter proceed without us.
We retreated from the iced world
And the continual cover of grey.
Now, soft light knocks on the door,
Invites us outside once again.
We peel off our blanket skins
And emerge into the spring sun
Shivering and shaking new,
We see a world creating blooms.
A world learning to be itself again,
Ready and waiting to be explored
