If you want to be a poet
be prepared for an adventure
it might begin with a faint nudge
from a well inside
a tap, tap, tap
like rain or snow
or the cocoon of fog
gracing a window.
It’s a knowing you can’t hide.

Poetry is my first love. Inspired by intuition & my chunky ginger cat. My favorite place is by the sea, sipping espressos and daydreaming.
