Travel, poetry, and inspiration… what do these all mean for me? When I hit writer’s block, just give me a train through Spanish fields, an airplane window over the Atlantic ocean, a far-far-away park bench, and suddenly the wheels are turning again.
In place of a “travel blog” post I’m bringing you the third part of my tag line: poetry!!
I was recently chosen as a finalist for the Eat This Poem August haiku contest, on the theme tomatoes.
In order to win (and have my little haiku transformed into a recipe!) I need your votes!! So help a girl out and please stop by Eat This Poem before August 15 and cast your vote for my haiku!
On Wednesday, I woke up to a foggy, muggy morning, like the dementors had settled over the coast. They knew the referendum was coming and I’m pretty sure they were sucking out all the joy they could. (Waking up this Friday morning to a leave vote, I think they succeeded). Be careful on the Millenium bridge, London readers. Sorry are my Harry Potter references getting too much? This post isn’t about Harry Potter.
You’ve probably noticed that my tagline for this website is Travel, Yoga, Poetry. So far the poetry aspect has been taking a backseat, but I have big news today!
Submitting poetry for publication can be a pretty complicated process and let it be known that I am not the most organized person. I signed a contract with Grub Street Review months ago for them to publish some of my poems, and promptly forgot about it…until this morning!
