Welcome to poems and haiku for all ages, along with children’s poetry, PhotoPoetry, Charley’s occasional blog about becoming a dizzy poet and the books that have resulted.

Absent -mindedly

Carving hundreds of peace signs

In the sand with her foot

During a long lunchtime

She considers that day’s sandwich

As being particularly good

See it, Read it, Gone

Follow the link to See it, Read it, Gone to find my current favourite poem. It will be available for you to read for a limited, random amount of time. The page will then be deleted and a new poem posted.

I hope you enjoy it.
