Two weeks of January

A couple of weeks into 2022, here’s what’s happening:

1. My poem ‘What to do’ found its way to the ‘Poetry Blog Digest 2022, Week 1’ on Via Negativa. Lots of  good stuff there to read, do check it out!

2. I read ‘Hello Earth’ – a compilation of prose-poems in the earthhello form, by Rosemary Nissen-Wade. These are personal reflections on self and surroundings written during the lockdown. Grab a free copy from the Smashwords site. You will find raw, engaging, healing poetry inside!

3. My detours into flash fiction continue, especially since poetry seems to wax and wane with the moon. If you haven’t read my piece from December, do give it a shot. 

4. Meanwhile, weekend curfews and night curfews are back with Omicron going nuts all over the city. Perhaps the weirdest part is how normal it all seems.

once more
voices slink into the dark
once more, quiet keeps vigil

 

How’s your January going?

  1. Congrats! And yeah, this reboot of Groundhog’s Day is the worst. Even my introverted butt is missing getting out.

    1. I have to agree.. I was quite happy for a while not socializing and getting out, but with Omicron even the little walks around the city are scary… hope it goes away soon!

    1. Thank you, Susan… hope this wave is kinder than the Delta rampage… but it is exhausting now to even think about Covid… it has taken enough..it needs to move on… stay safe 🙏
