I started writing poetry in 2011, thanks to my oldest daughter’s encouragement. She had enjoyed writing poetry at her school and we decided to set up a weekly theme – to challenge ourselves to write a poem a week throughout 2011. So began ‘Lyrical Sunday’. Poems from 2011
In 2013 and 2014 my poetry has tailed off, as we made a huge move from New Zealand to California, USA. I ended up with all three daughters at home full-time, ‘unschooling’. My time for writing became restricted and I was busy just trying to keep up our family journal / blog on all of our adventures!
My friend Cyndi also became busier and so Lyrical Sunday came to a natural close. I discovered another link-up over at ‘Verily, Victoria Vocalises’ called ‘Prose for Thought‘ and linked up there on and off. Poems from 2013 and from 2014.
We are all set to return to New Zealand to live in October 2014 and I’m hoping to write more poetry again in 2015.
