Day 27 – Tarot

A few years ago a work colleague gifted me a pack of Tarot cards and gave me a blue cloth to keep them safe. For this challenge, I decided to dig them out and use them as inspiration for today’s poem.

Day 26 – Senses

Sadly, I am making this entry a day late.  I decided to write about mental health as I think it is tricky concept for those that have not experienced it to understand.  When I was struggling with issues myself, I really got into poetry and I felt it was a way I could express myself more easily.  

Day 25 – Warning

Oh, this prompt sounds like fun. My hubby knows that I can be mean if I'm tired, hungry or have a headache. I also love vinegar and I'm very passionate about real food and don't like impersonators (margarine, quorn and chocolate bars that are really biscuits).

Day 24 – Elegy

With Earth Day recently taking place, my impact on the planet is at the forefront of my mind. The images of our seas plastic pollution is very disturbing and that is where I drew my inspiration for today's poem.

Day 23 – Avicii

I've always loved Avicii's music and I was sad to hear he had passed this weekend. I hoped the news was a hoax but it is wasn't. Today's poem is using the lyrics from one of his songs.

Day 22 – Thirteenth hour

As a Fantasy writer, I love making the impossible real.  My first instinct is to go with 'The clock can't strike thirteen' because it makes me think of my favourite film (from the 80s) Labyrinth, with goblins, faeries, mazes and magic.  

Day 21 – Unrequited

I think Echo’s story is one many have experienced. I'd bet everyone has wanted someone who doesn't know they exist and dismisses them without realising the hurt caused. If you've not experienced that - lucky you.

Day 20 – Rebel

Today's poem is about how we all are unique and we shouldn’t let anyone tell us who we are based on a box we are put in. Nobody should be compared to someone else. Especially not at the expense of their confidence.

Day 19 – Heatwave

Wow, it has been so hot today. Not sure how I'm going to cope as I get more pregnant but I plan to make the most of this heat wave whilst it's here because you never know in England what the weather will be tomorrow.
