Micropoetry - May + June 2023


Yes, you read the post title correctly - this is the Micropoetry wrap-up for May and June.

Yes, you are correct - it is August.


Why am I so late with this? 

A combination of 'haven't got around to it,' and 'just plain forgot.' (Sorry! 😅 )


The first one is written in my accent/dialect, because that's the way it was rattling around my head, so that's the way it got posted.

...It was the only way to stop it from going round and round in my head, OK?

I don't think it's that incomprehensible but then... it's also how I talk. So... *shrugs*

(And yes, I do say 'aye' to mean 'yes' sometimes in regular conversation. Many people here do. #NowYaKnow)


Here we are then, May and June's micropoetry:

As always, for those using screen-readers, the poetry will be in the alt-text of the graphics with / marks for line-spaces.

Micropoetry - December 2022 + January 2023


It's still February, so this post is not late 😉

So, with no further ado to-do (...I don't know either,) let's get some Micropoetry.

As always, the poetry will be in the alt-text for those using screen-readers, with / marks showing the line breaks.

Micropoetry - October + November 2022

More Micropoetry!

And yes, this covers both October and November, because I decided to combine them for... efficiency. Yeah, let's call it efficiency. 😅

As always, the poetry will be in the alt-text of the images for those using screen readers, with / marks for the line breaks.

Micropoetry - August + September 2022

Yes, I know it's the end of October.

It took me a while to sort the graphics out - just the way it goes sometimes, I don't know what to tell you.

(By the way, you will be getting a Micropoetry post for my October Micropoetry soon (...ish))


Shall we get some Micropoetry, though, yeah?

Come on then! (Lol.)

As always, for those using screen-readers, the poetry is in the alt-text, with / marks showing line breaks.

Micropoetry - April + May 2022

 

Micropoetry time! (Yay!)

So, I only wrote one piece of micropoetry in April, and one in May. 

The April one is haiku... because sometimes my brain provides me with haikus *shrugs*

As always, if you're using a screen-reader, the poetry itself is in the alt-text of the graphics, and line-breaks are marked by / marks.

Micropoetry - March 2022

 

All my Micropoetry from March!

...I have literally no clue where either of these came from. 

Should I blame the universe again? Yeah, why not let's blame the universe again.

The universe made me write these! Including the haiku! (Lol.)

Micropoetry - February 2022


Micropoetry time!

*cue imaginary jingle of your choice*



These are a bit more *waves hands vaguely* context-dependent than my usual micropoetry, so a little background info:

The second one (let's start at the end, why not?) is kinda based in all the sh** going down in the world right now.

The first one is very specifically about Partygate. 

I actually posted it on Twitter with hashtags calling for Boris Johnson to resign, so yes #political. You know I don't care whether you agree with me or not, and that's fine.

And I'm overly-pleased with myself for the 'Eton mess' bit, which probably makes zero sense to those of you who aren't British, but at least I amused myself!



So here we are, February's Micropoetry!

As always, for those using screen readers, the poetry is in the alt-text with / marks showing line breaks.

Month In Review(s) - February 2022

(Warning: this post discusses war, the threat of nuclear disaster, injured cats, and blood)



February.

2022.

February. 2022.

February 2022.



...I live in Europe. Edges of, here in the UK, but still Europe.

Y'know, that continent Putin nearly turned into a nuclear wasteland last week? 

And no, I'm not over-reacting, Zaporizhzhia is way bigger than Chernobyl, and radiation from the  Chernobyl disaster in 1986 was the reason Welsh farmers had restrictions on selling livestock until 2012.

So... *gestures at Putin in a non-polite manner*

'February - Chwefror' with heart patterned background. Apologies for the mess you text-reader probably got into trying to pronounce the Welsh.

Micropoetry - January 2022


Here we are with more of my micropoetry!

Woo! (Lol.)


I have absolutely no idea where the first one, in particular, came from - it was just one of those things that wouldn't leave me alone, y'know?

And the best way to deal with that is to get it out and into the world, in my experience!

It's also written partially in my accent (which is why it's don' le' instead of don't let,) because it just didn't feel right written in full - I don't know why, I think it threw the rhythm off or something *shrugs*


And the other poem I've got for you this month is a haiku.

- Just because, really 😅


As always, for those using text readers, the poetry is in the alt-text of the graphics.

Micropoetry - October + November 2021

 

Yes, I am well aware that it's nearly January 2022.

But, as there always seems to be, there's still some left-over house-keeping to do from 2021.



So here's the Micropoetry I wrote in October and November 2021.

And, as always, for those using screen-readers the poetry is in the alt-text of the images. It has / marks showing line breaks.



Wednesday 11 August 2021

Micropoetry - April + July 2021


 ...because I wrote one piece in April, and then there was a big gap 'til the next one in July *shrugs*

Apparently I was having a Shakespearean references moment in April. 

And was feeling things about Wales and our place in the world - and within (or maybe not) the United Kingdom - in July.

Y Ddraig means The Dragon in Welsh. You can check out a pronunciation here if that's something you're interested in.



So - this is what came out of all that! Enjoy!

Micropoetry - September + October 2020

 

There is Micropoetry! Woo!

...The October pieces were kind of written in a weird headspace so... sorry about that!

The September one is a Haiku because apparently in 2020 I write Haikus! (Seriously, I think I've written more Haikus this year than I ever have before.)

It was also one of those things which just kinda pop into my head, and then won't leave me alone until I do something with them 😅 #WriterProblems

Micropoetry - May + June 2020


Two very different pieces of Micropoetry from May and June for you, dearest nerdlets!

...Apparently I wasn't done with haiku, so the June poem is a haiku.

And I don't even know wtf I was doing with the May one... let me know if you like it, I guess? Whatever 'it' actually is!

As always, the poems are in the alt-text for those using screen-readers, with line breaks shown with a / mark.

Micropoetry - April 2020


I realise it's the 20th of May, but I have a very limited sense of space/time and a lack of organisation so... *shrugs*



OK, here's the micropoetry I wrote in April.

...And for some reason in April my brain decided to produce Haikus. I don't even know, tbh.

Wednesday 22 April 2020

Micropoetry - February + March 2020


(What do you mean it's nearly the end of April? Shhhhh! 😉)


I'm not sure what to make of the pieces of Micropoetry I wrote in February and March.

Like... I don't know whether I like them or not. To be honest.

Anyway, um... tell me what you think, I guess!

Month in Review(s) - February 2020



February... I mean, on a personal level, February wasn't too bad.

I had a few colds (and yes, they were colds,) and some bad depression days, but nothing too much.




'February - Chwefror' written on an old-fashioned wooden desk, scattered with hearts, a notebook, and number blocks (1. 4.)




Although *gestures vaguely at the state of the world* I realise that more than a few squares have been crossed off on our apocalypse bingo cards.

But we've been crossing those things off since 2016, so it's probably not that surprising.

And a reminder, my dearest darling nerdlets: where there's life there's hope, and where there's hope, there's life.

Micropoetry - January 2020



I hoped to get January's Micropoetry post out earlier than this but... *shrugs*

Life happens. And I'm working hard on not over-working (I know, #WalkingContradiction ftw)

I'm also kinda nervous about this month's poems, 'cos... I don't know, tbh. I just am 😅 So hopefully you'll like them!

Micropoetry - December 2019



I wrote two pieces of Micropoetry in December.

They're quite different, but I actually quite like them!


As always, for those using screen-readers, the poetry can be found in the alt-text with / marks showing line breaks.

Micropoetry - October 2019



Micropoetry time again dearest nerdlets!

(Yes, I realise that it's the 20th of November. I have time issues. 😅)

This month's offerings are maybe a li'l weird

...but it was October dammit! You can totally be weird in October! (*pretends I'm not weird all year round*) 😅

Micropoetry - August + September 2019



Yes! She still writes Micropoetry! And she's super-late with posting it! 😅


Why am I posting August and September's Micropoetry at the butt-end of October?

Well, because I'm a poorly-organised, hare-brained, book blogger. 😅

Multi-tasking Queen I may be -

(I'm currently juggling writing/putting together this post while doing work (like, adulting-style work,) and listening to a BookTube video on 2x speed)

- but I don't have all the time in the world, and I tend to forget sh**.

Plus, I have to sleep and eat and stuff, and self-care ftw! 😉



So, anywho, here's the Micropoetry:
