Lockdown 28 – Poetry Book for Charity
Some cried – some laughed – some got inspired
When Covid 19 hit New Zealand, the country was forced into lockdown. What to do ? I challenged myself to write a poem a day for 28 days. The idea was to raise funds for those worst effected and to cheer people up by giving them something to look forward to. All proceeds to the Salvation Army.
The world right now is one big lap dance
you can look and dream but not too much
at stuff you can’t yet touch
keep your social distance……
30 Minutes – Short Poems over a Long Time
Dirty laundry – Commuting – Love & Regret
Long and dusty
with a mysterious air
she swaggers through the grapes
immersed in smoke
fuming from the cheek of the man
Sipping from a glass
taken like a hasty photograph
a right laugh in the face
of someone negative
busy playing true and loyal
only to herself
Ripe and plucked from life
squashed by man machine
and hasty assumptions that she was ready
and willing for anything that goes blindly
into the arms of a monster………
From “Barossa.” 2002
