At a recent PDP session with Cathy Grindrod I resolved to write more poems, so here’s one that came to me in Sainsbury’s car park recently.
I can’t remember when
The invisibility cloak went round us
The time the line was drawn
And I was to stay inside.
I think the shutting off was
I never slipped the trap
Enough to feel it bite.
Now I jump the circle
You try to draw me back, but
The taste of freedom is stronger
Than anything you can give me.

Hi Becky, this is a powerful poem. I hope you keep writing and that 2014 brings you all good things. Kindest, Rae.
Thank you, Rae. Not sure I can stop now. Could you post a link to your blog, please?
Ahhh. How do I sign up without signing up for BlogSpot? I like your current post a lot. I would love to go to Shanghai or whatever it’s called at the moment!
