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.

Day 16 – Play

When I first approached this task I thought of Peculiar Pets by Victoria Roberts. It's a picture book about a little girl that wants a pet but her mum says "We'll see" whenever she asks. The little girl creates pets out of bits and pieces around the home. It is a delightful read about a child's imagination and creative play.

Day 15 – Grim Reaper

I've made it half way through, learnt more than I expected and feel motivated that I can make it to the end of 30 days. Today’s challenge is to write a poem that shows the human side of a villain. I chose the Grim Reaper.

Day 13 – Idiom

Today, you get two poems because I wrote "Bear in mind" on Opus a few years ago and I think it is perfect for the prompt. However, the challenge is to write a poem a day so I also wrote a new one.
