Haiku, Poetry
Comments 2

23rd – 27th of November 2013


Slept past seminar

with the help of winter chills

that bring endless colds.


No warmth in the sheets

or limbs willing to share

what heaters won’t give.


I slowed each word spoke,

chasing after sentences

trying to escape.


The fire was burning,

when I stumbled in with bags

spilling from my arms.


Searching for a name,

As is: ‘own work’, written by’,

not just about her.

With poems published in ‘Here and Now’ by United Press, ‘Express Yourself’ by Young Writers and a self-published collection titled ‘As I Stand So Far’, poetry was always her first passion. Contained within this site is a collection of her shorter stories, poetry, attempts at monthly challenges, sporadic journal updates and the online collection of Flash Fiction ‘Headquarters’.
