Acrostichis – #NaPoWriMo20 – Day 23

Hey 😊   Day 23’s prompt went like this: write a poem about a particular letter of the alphabet, or perhaps, the letters that form a short word. Here’s my attempt, it doesn’t talk about the letters but it does play with them as a nod to the word down the left *shrugs* Proud, perhaps […]


Hello 🙂 I have been journaling around the idea of ‘success’ today…so I wrote an acrostic of it 😉   Sucks to be me: Understand that I am fragile, Caress my ego before the Cesspit of despair Eats any progress you make. Sit with me, and speak of victimisation; Start a dialogue with dread.   […]

Looking Back, Keeping Track

Hiya 🙂 I thought I would pause and reflect on the new challenges I have been giving myself over the past few weeks, and link to ones I have enjoyed the most – which also gives you a chance to revisit (or discover!) them. 😉 I messed about with Acrostics on the 12th and 13th […]

See what you think:   Traditional tinsel-taker Resplendently rigmaroled; Endlessly emulated Excitement enhancer.     Take the present But always remember The person that gave Is worth millions more             The smell […]


Hello! Creative types:  have you had that experience recently where you find yourself churning out usable lines, but you are far from your paper?! Today the weather was extremely wet, and I hadn’t eaten my breakfast yet despite having done the school run and all the usual stresses that encapsulates.  I found an Alpen bar […]


Hey there 🙂 I have been enjoying all the fresh content around Brendon Burchard’s new book, High Performance Habits. Makes my YouTube Junkie status all the more worthwhile! His messages have inspired today’s poem. (I was thinking up ‘Christmassy Acrostics’ I could pen):   Pamper those you love Reset the inner critic, Enable the joy. […]
