Morning..first attempts at poetry!!

Blackbird song
Mersey seagulls flying
Factory soft lull
Pigeons robin warm sun
Grapefruit sharp
Coffee awakening
Peace stillness so quiet
Far off cry of a baby
Nicotine drifts over the fence
Mum mum mum
Start of day..

I havent done any poetry since college but thought I would have a go so wrote this poem this morning. The photo is of the cover of one of my journals for sale in my Etsy

Brave you, doing poetry !

Lorraine...This is a great poem...I love the word pictures this conjures up in my mind!

I write poetry too...since I was a little girl, but it's funny..I haven't written in a while either. You artistic mothers' group ladies are starting to give me the writing itch again!

Carin said...

Great! I think I'm there!

Oh, Lorraine, this is just beautiful. It really captures the start of morning. I can visualize it. You really have a knack for this.

And your collage is gorgeous.
