Today is Day 4 of 2011 National Poetry Week and we are encouraged to

LIVE- be liberated to find poetry and the inspiration for poems in every part of life.

I am still doing my thing ๐Ÿ˜‰ so I was delighted to receive a poem from Brisbane-based poet Graham Nunn and he had this to say:

‘Wrote this one for UK poet, Jacob Polley after taking him fishing last weekend. Think it tells the story…’

Empty Creel

Cast after cast
he failed
to notice the wind
reach deep
inside his ear,
planting there
a future of ice.


Thanks Graham ๐Ÿ™‚ Haha – it does tell a story!

I will post a couple more poems today (otherwise I am going to run out of days ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) I am really enjoying this week of sharing – so much fun to be had (the more the merrier).

Release the inner poet!

Release the inner poet!

Release the inner poet (and send me her poetry) ๐Ÿ˜‰

Don’t forget to send me a poem for 2011 National Poetry Week.

As part of the celebrations I am inviting my regular readers to send me a poem and I will plop it on my blog during the week (5th to 11th of September).

I would especially like to encourage the โ€˜non-poetsโ€™ among you to participate. You donโ€™t have to be Australian and it can be on any topic. Offensive poems, however, will be tossed in the bin.

You can email me at gbryden at bigpond dot com with your poem.
