Anthem by poemsgalore Word Count: 190

Disability is something I relate to as I'm both disabled and work with disabled children. A body that won't work properly doesn't mean the brain doesn't work either. This poem is very important to me personally.

It's surprising how looking in the food cupboard can inspire a piece of work. A fun poem (I hope).

Dressed For Ceremony by poemsgalore Word Count: 135
11  Comments

When my daughter took A-level art, she studied Waterhouse, whose paintings are based on poems (well some of them anyway) and for her set piece she wanted a poem with the same title, Dressed For Ceremony, so I wrote this. I'll let the poem speak for itself, but the painting was amazing. She got a B for her efforts.

Foot And Mouth by poemsgalore Word Count: 76
4  Comments

I'm sure most of you will remember the Foot and Mouth epidemic that spread across the UK a couple of years ago. This was written in the middle of it all. As I live in a fairly rural area, it affected us in a small way and I witnessed it first hand.

I Got The Blues by poemsgalore Word Count: 159
6  Comments

The title speaks for itself, I have a tune for it in my head but as I don't write music and can't sing, nobody is ever likely to hear it.

Names of places always fascinate me, and listening to the shipping forecast and all the shipping areas around the coast of the UK inspired me to try and write a poem about some of the areas, this is the result.

Tragedies like this shouldn't be forgotten. This is only based on the event, as I don't know the full facts of the story.

More Miniwords by poemsgalore Word Count: 39
12  Comments

Another collection of Miniwords. These are not Haikus, although occasionally one might turn out quite unintentionally, to be a Haiku. The form is nine words in total, three lines of three words each. As there are no titles to these pieces the words must be descriptive enough to tell the reader what the subject matter is. Try it, it's fun.
