I was learning to be me, I was writing poetry and I was 26

Near my family

  1. Bring that 16 verse poem to the Boyne Writers meeting tonight - we'll cut it down a bit, it might make a good Haiku!

  2. poised to fall in love and have a great adventure - that sounds wonderful, like a bird about to fly...

    hope you get to the sea orla

    goodluck with the poem, hope it escaped michaels reduction plans!

  3. Ha ha well Michael did criticise the first verse but the rest esacped :P I will revise the first verse likely. I hope that I get to the sea too Niamh. Have you been writing much yourself lately?

    Just watching Sarah Jessica Parker on who do you think you are here. Have you read The Grapes of Wrath?
