Featured on Ink Sweat & Tears

Standard

I realise despite writing 38 poems in the past 4 weeks for NaPoWriMo, you haven’t seen any of them – so I can treat you all to a full poem today care of IS&T who kindly published ‘Where We Begin’, it is the featured poem today.

Much of the poetry I wrote in 2020 (beyond my own ongoing projects), was as a result of fantastic, generous workshops. When I reminded myself of the origins of this poem I knew I needed to add thanks to Zelda Chappel.

Zelda ran several classes/workshops throughout Lockdown. This poem came from the Week 1 Writing in New Spaces, so thanks Zelda for making me write in the fresh places.

It was written over a year ago, a few weeks into the 1st Lockdown, it reminds me how far we have and have not come.

With gratitude to IS&T and Helen Ivory for considering this poem.

Keep safe all of you.
