This week's task...to write a poem on something (literally ON something)...came via Dominic Rivron's place. I sort of complied...went and stuck my tree poem postcard (all recycled materials, people) in a tree (see above). If you can't make out the words properly here they are again:
Save the trees (or else)
Blend in with the trees Make use of their breadth Think wild, no one sees Rediscover some depth Sycamores have keys So that's where they're kept Open wide the wood door Remember what it's for
It's something like a proper form (ottava rima - one of my faves) and if anyone wants a copy of the postcard and hasn't got one just send me an email and I'll see what I can do. Alternatively you can buy sets of all my 12 postcards from my website.
Originally from the north of England, I live in Angus, Scotland where I walk a lot, think a lot, listen to lots of music, sometimes write poems, sometimes read poems out to other people, sometimes write songs, read all kinds of odd things, watch a bit...oh and I look after my family too.
I sometimes organise poetry and music events - details are usually here (though nothing coming up in the near future). This year I went travelling with my family - photos and notes are here. Now we're back I have moved to a new regular blog - it is here.
More about the song
You can buy my book (published 2008) from my website if you fancy it (go to 'book' page) or from www.amazon.co.uk if you prefer the comfort of the multinational corporation. My book is printed on recycled paper and card. I have 12 different poetry postcards available too.
