New to poetry due to a recent WI Competition. Not sure what is right or wrong, correct or incorrect in the world of poetry I am enjoying the challenge and distraction during these unprecedented times. I have been working on a website, to display and store my poetry attempts


My house is full of empty spaces where you would eat, sleep and be My days are now full of silence because you are not here with me

Think I understand what you're getting at when referring to the support for Marcus Rashford when people really came together, but otherwise the behaviour of The Brits was appalling. Booing the Italian national anthem, gatecrashing the match, which there is no excuse for now, with all the mega screens available, beating up Italian supporters afterwards outside the stadium,and finally leaving the London Streets as if there had been a war. Not to mention the refusal to accept the medals for second place. I was really ashamed.

Your house may be empty
but no need to be grumpy-
The silence that be
filled now with poetry!

on your face
a chip in you
to be tracked and traced,
they know your name
they know your place
remove yourself
do so in haste!

Welcome to WOL Julie. As others have said, your way of writing poetry is just that, yours. Don't be hijacked by fashion: say what you have to say in your own words and you'll be fine. And thank you kindly for liking my poem 'The hardest day', I look forward to reading your work. Bon chance. John

we all make the same mistake.

Thank you for your comment on "The Lonely Room".
Dedicated to all those in Nursing Homes
who because of the Chinavirus cannot see their families.

Do masks really save lives?
it's debatable.
Each individual should be allowed to make that decision.
There is no law that says the state can make you wear a mask.
Once liberty is taken away, it's awful hard to get it back.
See Cuba or Venezuela or Red China!
