I'm writing this to you from an internet cafeteria on the Emerald Ireland: Ireland! It's not strictly a poem, but it is about poetry, so I thought I'd put it on here anyway.
I've spent the last couple of days here with my friend Noelene and my two babies. They were a little upset that they had to share a seat on the Ryanair flight, but they enjoyed talking to all the friendly people around us.
Noelene is one of my good friends - her son Grant is a somewhat troubled teen (there is a link to his site on my list of links!), and she decided to come with me to the home of peotry, Limerick, to recharge her creative batteries.
But the strangest coincidences have happened. I once spent a lovely weekend here with a lovely ex-boyfriend - we'll call him 'NW' - where I imparted to him the healing power of poetry. (The only reason we split up was that he is a movie maker, and he needed to devote his time to making movie magic). So I was thinking about NW and about poetry, when Noelene told me her son had been attending a mentoring programme - and her Grant's mentor was none other than dear NW! Wow, huh?
If that wasn't enough, we decided to search for NW - and it turned out he has internet log as well, AND THERE'S A LINK TO MY POETRY SITE ON IT! Double wow!
Missy and Herman were very impressed.
After all of these magical coincidences, I can feel my poetry chakra really going into overdrive. Phew! Let's get creative!
LoL (lots of love)
