Hashtag Poetry #17

Every day in 2022 I’ll post six lines of unique poetry on Twitter, and then archive it here for posterity with some additional observations. Here is Poem #17:

There was too much going on this morning to do it at the time. The fact I remembered it in the Gym at 5.30 says a lot about where my headspace is right now, too. Things are getting better.

Coming Up…

January is almost at an end, and to maintain the momentum from 2022’s early morning productivity, it’s time to start making plans for February. What can you expect to see next month?

Starting February 10th, the Proper Bard Podcast goes into History Mode, as it’s time to understand what happened to allow me to get to the point in a career that still defines me as an ‘Early State Creative’. There’ll be a chance to share my first publication poem (and the fact it got a round of applause at the time) plus my adventures in local borough history. That will keep us going well into March and possibly beyond…

Then it is high time I updated my YouTube Channel, which we will ‘soft relaunch’ with an upgrade for my Introductory Video. It’s a lovely excuse to flex creative muscles in ways I don’t normally have time to do, plus on this occasion I’ve written a poem to accompany the pictures, because honestly that’s what I do for everything now. You can expect to see this premiering sometime after I have my first proper break post-Pandemic… let’s say after the 21st. I refuse to be more precise than that.

#HashtagPoetry will continue, and I’ll also get back to poetry reviewing and wibbling about the World, which at present could easily be a full-time job if someone was prepared to pay me for it. Oh, and at the end of this month, expect a small passion project to emerge surrounding the subject of Imaginary Band Names…

This poem is explained with ten minutes of video, available to you if you’d like to sign up to my Ko-Fi Sub Model here. If you don’t want to do this, I respect and accept that choice, and choose as a result not to share the details. Welcome to Late-Stage Capitalism 😀

Hashtag Poetry #15

Every day in 2022 I’ll post six lines of unique poetry on Twitter, and then archive it here for posterity with some additional observations. Here is Poem #15:

I was a bit stressed at 7.30am: today was dentistry for my youngest, and I have issues with Dentists that go back to the 1970’s. It’s always a hard ask, but by 2pm all of this was forgotten. Today is a landmark, because of a title for a collection that appeared literally out of nowhere, because of the kindness of strangers and ultimately as a reminder that yes, if you work your arse off, good things to come.

Never let it be said that I do not learn.

Yesterday was bedlam. Today is a lot of subtle rearrangement of directions and outputs. We’re getting close to some new things becoming habit, too, which I am very happy about.

Hashtag Poetry #13

Every day in 2022 I’ll post six lines of unique poetry on Twitter, and then archive it here for posterity with some additional observations. Here is Poem #13:

I’ve just stopped for lunch at almost 2.30pm. Today has been full-on: three Zoom meetings, a workout session and a Podcast recording. I have no chance to feel sad on Blue Monday, there’s too much left to still be organized for that… plus I’ve bought underwear that I finally feel really comfortable in! Quick, order some more before you forget!

Been a Week, guys, but we made some huge, massive, brilliant progress.

Hashtag Poetry #10

Every day in 2022 I’ll post six lines of unique poetry on Twitter, and then archive it here for posterity with some additional observations. Here is Poem #10:

This was the ice on my car roof at 7.30am, and I felt if I didn’t take a photograph of it there and then, nobody would believe that something so beautiful could have happened on something so unexpected. Some days, it is moments like this which grant me the ability to push through adversity. I was very grateful for the art. It could be leaves or feathers: nature duplicates the Universe, and the Universe in turn grants infinite complexity to the natural world.

Pick up some rubbish today, and recycle something problematic. If you don’t save the Planet, no-one will.

Hashtag Poetry #9

Every day in 2022 I’ll post six lines of unique poetry on Twitter, and then archive it here for posterity with some additional observations. Here is Poem #9:

Some days, you find yourself seeing the World through fresh eyes, often when you least expect to. Today has been like that for me. An awful lot has been done as a result. An awful lot more has been uncovered for the first time. It’s the right moment therefore to capitalize on my conclusions…

HASHTAG POETRY #8

Every weekday in 2022 I’ll post six lines of unique poetry on Twitter, and then archive it here for posterity with some additional observations. Here is Poem #8:

The smarter of you will notice two things. Firstly, this is late, because today I got the priorities misplaced, and a lot of emotional stuff has happened between Friday and here. However, as it is now remembered, we’re back in the game. Secondly, this is now a Monday to Friday gig, so when I get overpowered again by emotion, there’s somewhere for me to go. For now, we’ll work on having this up tomorrow morning 😀
