Hushed By The Kerbside – A Poem

The other day, I found a rabbit that had been killed by a car. I needed to write about it. Please forgive the formatting...Wordpress is being an arse and not formatting it how I had it laid out in the original document. *Sigh.* Hushed By The Kirbside Rabbit, what happened to your beautiful eye? The… Continue reading Hushed By The Kerbside – A Poem

Carry The Fire – Some Quotes For Those Who Write

I am in a peculiar and uncomfortable headspace at the moment and it's making writing poetry difficult.

This led me to create the following poem. It's a very rough first draft, so please bear with me!… Continue reading The Darkest Days – Jack Frost

The Darkest Days – Marzanna

Writing about the Slavic Pagan goddess Marzanna wasn't, for whatever reason, easy. Neither was capturing a portrait. It's happened a few times during the past weeks that things just haven't come together, no matter how hard I've tried.

Good Things That Have Happened This Week

New Boots Anyone who knows me well will know that, for the past decade, I've been wearing French Ranger boots. I've walked my way through several pairs, only getting rid when the soles have worn through.
