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.

Month in Review(s) - May 2022

(Warning: this post discusses Covid, migraines, and mental health problems)

 

I know it's late-ish June. I got Covid.

...And I didn't want to just not do a post for May, because it was bugging me 😅



May 2022... *hysterical laughter*

OK, May 2022 was a bit of a rollercoaster for me.

Like, there was some really good stuff, some really bad stuff, and some stuff I point-blank don't know how to categorise.

Month in Review(s) - April 2022

 

April was rough, mental health-wise.

I'm OK - just having to adapt and take care.

...It's kind of worse when there's no real reason or trigger because there's nothing you can blame, y'know?


'April - Ebrill' with a fancy woman with an umbrella, it's all very artsy. Also sorry for the mess your screen-reader's probably made of the Welsh


...and it really doesn't help that the pollen this year is exceptionally, brutally, high, so my hayfever is extra-present this year.

Kind of hard to focus on your mental health when the pollen is making you feel like a zombie, lol.

(Oh, and hayfever is linked to climate change. #TrueStory.)

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.)

Month In Review(s) - March 2022

Warning: this post briefly discusses various aspects of the world's clusterf**k, including but not limited to: Ukraine, systemic Transphobia, and Covid 19. 

It also breifly discusses poor mental health, and chronic illness (migraines.)



March was... turbulent.

Which I know isn't exactly unusual atm, but still...


'March - Mawrth' with a flowery background.

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*
