A POEM A DAY - FLYING FREE




I started this 'A POEM A DAY' project on July 4th 2019 with the intention of continuing until the November anniversary of this blog. Somehow I continued, through ill health, busy days, quiet times and lockdown. Writing three simple lines each day became part of my routine, bringing unexpected benefits. I doubt that many more people read my longer poems on this blog but I was touched by the number of people who expressed their pleasure in reading them. It also helped motivate me to get out into nature, to look more carefully at my environment, to slow down and enjoy the smallest petal or insect, the movement of clouds, the patterns in waves and sand. 

I feel it is time to move on before I run out of inspiration and try something new. I intend to finish the memoir of an intense period of my life in Spain when our village worked together to protect our environment. With trees still be destroyed all over the world in the name of progress and with my appreciation of the role of our European partners, sadly ended by Brexit, it is a story I believe needs to be told.  I will also continue to write and post new poems, as the muse takes me.  My belief in the healing power of words and nature is stronger than ever and my pleasure in exploring myth and history only enhanced by this years experience. 

Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to read, comment and appreciate this project. You have bought me much joy.
