Hello! I'm from Kent but now living in Guildford in Surrey. A menopausal empty nester, as @Rhymes_n_Roses on Instagram I enjoy sharing poetry which combines nostalgia and attempts to make sense of modern life. Although many of my subjects are serious, I (sometimes) try to inject humour and positivity. I've self-published a book of rhymes "Introducing Rhymes_n_Roses", and will soon have poems in a number of international anthologies. Poetry has helped me through lockdown and I've just relaunched my website which I'd love you to visit and comment on. Thank-you
Cages of Glass
In cages of glass we hide in plain sight from a sickness unfettered by borders. Sadly we don’t have the power to fight, so we all must obey ‘stay home’ orders. As the framework of daily life shatters, work life is home life, we must not commute, we have time to reflect on what matters, saving the good stuff before we reboot. Outside the virus roams free striking all, wealth and status provide no protection. Key workers heeding society’s call plead that we stop spreading infection. In cages of glass we ogle at screens trying to grasp what the hell this all means.
