My poems ‘Sunshine’ and ‘Circle of Friends’ are out in Tips for Writers this month. Issue 94 is Memorial themed with a good collection of sweet, sad and sentimental verse… and just to break the alliterative thread, my couple of poems throw some cynicism into the mix. Does the sun really shine in March? Not in Britain it doesn’t! And as for the ‘Circle of friends’ which my poem alludes to, perhaps a gravestone would be an appropriate photo! My favourite piece in Issue 94 is ‘Microtale’ by Perry McDaid – this fun little two-liner put a smile on my face 🙂
