Where did November go, I wonder?  I never achieved my target of writing 30 poems, my output was even less  than usual! I did continue to write some Twitter poetry, but none of that exceeds 160 characters. Still, writing such short verse does concentrate the mind.

So, continuing with the short and sweet theme, here are three  short catch up poems.


I burned your letters as you asked

now there’s only ash

and the odd remembered flash

of pain.



Green sloping lawn

with spiky edges

grey sky

two people hunched

squinting  in to the distance

not speaking.

Impossible day.




I light a candle for you

as dusk falls

and then these walls


and here we are

not far from one another

looking up at

a star.
