Same Old

Happy 2023 and I hope you enjoyed the festive season.

This week is my first back at the writing desk. After a hectic time travelling around England (over a thousand miles in ten days), visiting family and friends, I think it will take me a few days to get back in the swing of things.

I am looking forward to catching up and reading your posts in the remainder of the week. Until then, here is a poem about New Year from my debut poetry collection, All Mine. (The audio version follows).

You rode in on a choir
Of church bells and fireworks,
Bow dripping fake gold
Onto remnant waves

I woke and found you gone,
A lingering smell
Of faux mademoiselle
Left on the pillow

  1. Welcome back and Happy New Year. 🙂 I hope your trip to England/around England was fun and not too exhausting. It can be difficult trying to fit in all the family in a short period of time.

    1. Thank you, Brenda, and a happy 2023 to you too. There are still a couple of trips planned for the rest of the week. Looking forward to Monday and being able to draw breath.

  2. Happy new year, Davy. Getting back to writing can be daunting but it will fall into place. “faux mademoiselle” – seems intriguing and misleading. haha. Be well. 🙂
