I wrote this on Facebook whilst living in Cambridge England.

Once upon a time
She said
He asked
They responded
We moved
Overseas
Expats
Set up house
New words
Diff customs
Making friends
Traveling
Daily living
Temporary
Marvellous opportunity
Just another chapter
In our journey.

Ten more months
To travel and enjoy
This dream.

I took this photo in the same day. A path to the pedestrian walkway from our flat. (It was a cloudy day!)

Day 9 – NaPoWriMo/GloPoWriMo 2020

(Shape poem.)

Our prompt for the day (optional as always) is inspired by Kaschock’s use of space to organize her poems. Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a “concrete” poem – a poem in which the lines and words are organized to take a shape that reflects in some way the theme of the poem. This might seem like a very modernist idea, but poets have been writing concrete poems since the 1600s! Your poem can take a simple shape, like a box or ball. . .

I decided on a tree shape about the virus.
