National Poetry Day and Competition.

Today is National Poetry Day, hurray. I love Poetry. When I as a kid, the book I most often got from the library was the penguin book of Children’s poems. Every time I read it I found new poems that pulled me in but my favourite was always Macavity the Mystery Cat by TS Eliot. As I looked at more and more poetry I found Michael Rosen, who is still a favourite poet of mine to this day along with Roger McGough and Adrian Henri who I once had the pleasure of meeting.

I love to play with words and though mostly I do write stories I often write shorter, more lyrical stories which are more commonly known as poems.

Here is a very short example of my poetic style, I hope you like it.

 

Inspiration.

Your words always inspire my emotions to dance.

my mind to explore

and my soul to stand still and rest.

 

Now share with me a poetic line or two. Every person who leaves a comment on my blog here or tweets about this blog post on twitter will be entered into a competition to win a victoriablisse goodie pack including a handwritten poem signed by me and written just for you.

I will announce the winner on the 16th October (next Friday) so get commenting and tweeting. If you do both, you get two entries into the prize draw.
