How I Amuse My Poetry Muse Vol XIII

Watching cartoons with my boy
fills me with a sense of joy,
Funny how these animations
give me so much inspiration,
Maybe it’s the fantasy
that appeals so much to me,
Or maybe I appreciate that
my life’s just as animated…

Listen to how the
sun glistens
on empty streets
that once were filled
with rumbling cars
& lumbering feet
But now lies still
in slumbering peace
achieved by a
brief summer shower
(Inspired by #Dimpleverse prompt ‘Crystalline’)

I see you.

I can see through
that see-through skin.

So what will you do –
Will you run away screaming?

Or will you
let me
(Inspired by #BentHalos prompt ‘Transparent’)

Scream into space or
whisper into the abyss –
still, nothing changes.
It feels like no one listens;
But what do I hope to hear…?

Dear chuggers, please note
Charity should always be
an act of kindness;
So please, let me remind you
that compassion comes for free.

I love words; both reading and writing them. I've started this site in order to have a depository for all the random ramblings which are continually swirling around my mind. Some of the aforementioned ramblings may be quite serious but the majority probably won't be. I'm a single mother living in Norwich. I'm also autistic. This isn't the defining component of my personality, although it is a significant one, and one which I think has a heavy influence on my writing, which is why I choose to highlight it. I also feel no shame over being autistic and refuse to perceive it as a disability. The way I see it, life is hard work whichever way your brain is wired up. Aside from all things wordy, I also love music. I find it to be an incredible mood enhancer, as well as a great enabler for the imagination. I love all kinds of music, though hard house in particular - as everything in life is better when it's hard... I hope you enjoy my musings and thank you for reading! I can also be found on
