I tried a new form – a badger hexastich poem in response to this stunning photo
From Colleen’s blog – BADGER HEXASTICH: The Badger Hexastich is syllabic and written in six lines with a 2/4/6/6/4/2 structure. It is unrhymed with optional rising and falling end-words, which I think is an interesting twist.
The Waterfall Weeps Its Cares
Waterfall weeps its cares
I hear, see, smell and feel
I taste the might

My latest book a collection of poetry, is due out on February 26th.
Lockdown Innit is a poetry collection of eighteen poems about life’s absurdities and frustrations during lockdown. Wherever you live in this world, this is for you. Expect humour, a dollop of banter and ridiculous rants here and there. Amongst other delights, witness the strange antics of a swan posing by a bin and two statuesque horses appearing like arc deco pieces in a field. Check out the violin player on a tightrope, or the cheeky unmentionables wafting in the lockdown breeze!
It is available to preorder now:

Hope you enjoyed the poem about the waterfall. I have a fondness for waterfalls and all things water!
