No More NaPoWriMo

With a sick baby, a house that won't clean itself and visitors due to arrive I'm afraid NaPoWriMo is done with for this year.

Thanks to all those who followed my posts and encouraged me to keep going over the last fortnight.

Really sorry you are having to leave us. hope it is only temporarily. All the very best to both of you - and thanks for all the support and feedback. Good luck.

All the stuff people tell you (and you get sick of hearing) about 'he'll soon be asking to borrow the car keys' is sadly true. But in the meantime its hard work and he does look very, very small!

(a found poem consisting of the fragments of sorlil’s napowrimo posts)

A fishing boat and a yacht
share the open sea
my ears are bleeding
with poetry
Looking beyond
a rook flies
over sand banks,
over us
clouds nestle
in the Kilcreggan hills
at my back in neon purple
floats the Parthenon temple
it's all I had time for

Damp city streets,
let us walk
the highway to the sea.
Do not stop,
there is no turning back,
keepsake.
Above my head a tower
of sandstone,
mourning.

Wenn's regnet und die Sonne scheint,
so schlägt der Teufel seine Großmutter:
er lacht und sie weint


The Clyde is alive
with light,
blue-grey waves ride
into sun-glazed white,
a found poem.
Today was a struggle,
the grass is clean with dew,
a pool of green surrounds.
The hills are deep in snow,
the buds are fattening
on the blossom trees.
Castle Sands.
All I see is daffodils
in the dying light of day
