“Lead, Kindly Light”

published 28/06/2006

ProMemories rekindled

ConsNone

It was 28th June, 1987 at 7-30 PM when I reached Thrissur, my home town in my native state of Kerala in India, hearing that my mother was seriously ill and was admitted to a hospital. I had to fly from Dubai the previous night via Kuwait and Goa, rather than by a direct flight to my state capital...

“Sapphires”

published 05/01/2007

ProNone

ConsToo many

Been racking my brains whether to publish this but my Bro said that he would like me too. His son, my oldest Nephew, died at the age of 18 after a car accident, early December 2006. We are all finding it very difficult to get back into the swing of being more than just ghosts of our former selves...

ProN/A

ConsN/A

I have spent a couple of weeks now getting used to this site and have written a couple of reviews based on my collection of girly films and cheesy pop music! However, I noticed that many people had written creative writing type pieces that were not reviewing products and I toyed with the idea of...

ConsNot as easy as watching telly

I've had pretty much no energy lately. I think it may be something to do with the fact that I have been carrying out my own version of Morgan Spurlock's "Supersize Me" called "Beef-and-Tomato-Pot-Noodle Me". I don't seem to have gained as much weight as that dude did, but I have noticed that I've...

“Inside a Tormented Mind”

published 29/07/2005

ProThe best poem I've ever written...

Cons... still far from the best poem ever written...

This is possibly the best, certainly the most powerful poem I've ever written. I just want to point out though, that it is NOT BASED ON REAL LIFE! The inspiration came from a few very... interesting months working at a Mental Health Centre in North Birmingham. Actually the first couple of lines...

“ all because of you”

published 27/03/2005

Proleting go and loving someone

Conspain, suffering and agony

All because of you is about coping with death and other things that aren’t so rosy in life. At the end is who it is dedicated to and why. I hope that you read on in this poem and enjoy! Thank you for your time. I saw you lying there, Lying helpless in front of me, With tubes coming out of you...

“'What? - I died!!'”

Proappreciate who you have, while you have them!

ConsMay put a lump in your throat

In 1999, after 26 years of fairly happy marriage my husband John suddenly died of a massive heart attack the day after our anniversary. He was 56. (Hence the title!) I 've always loved writing simple poetry but the heartbreak I was feeling was released in several poems in the forthcoming weeks...

“A goodbye to my mum.”

ProComing to terms with death

ConsSo hard to say.

This is much belated, my mother died in May 2003.I have tried to put feelings into words, but can't convey all the thoughts and feelings, but need to try. Alone with my thoughts in the ebb-time of night I watch as the clock ticks your lifespan away Bathed in the lamplight, your face has a glow A...

ConsMaybe not technically poetry in the usual sense

For every century of reviews, I have published a piece of creative writing I’ve done over the years. For my 500th, I thought I’d do something slightly different. Still creative writing, but in a different form. I have mentioned it on here in the past, so some of you may know that writing song...

published 07/11/2004

ProIt's fun

ConsIt's not easy

This is a challenge set by Mark1961 This is my feeble attempt at a Haiku which was not easy and I wish I could have captured the freedom of spirit of an eastern poet. Haiku Five syllables first Seven syllables are next Five syllables last Spring Expectations rise Loosening winters grip Fresh hope...
