Savvy Poem – Cruel Comfort

Inspired by the poem ‘Little Tree’ by e e cummings.   How could I hope to comfort you? You with your feet hacked off, your roots left behind – left behind to be nourished – fed by your mothers and aunts, by those unwilling to let go of the remnants of an existence that once…

Savy Poem – Burnt Ice

As cold as cold, as hot as hot, shivering through and through, her skin burns to ice. Frostbitten and scorched, she rehatches.     Copyright owned by Jay Cool Image by Tania Van den Berghen from Pixabay Silly Poem – Didn’t Silly Poem – Conwy Savvy Poem – Worthlessness        

Savvy Poem – No Longer Relevant

Relevant no longer, and no longer relevant, I revel in the moment of a truth accidentally spoken, feeling all the weight of me lifted; lifted up and taken away by the accident of a truth, at last now spoken – my irrelevance having in that moment, at last, become relevant.   Copyright owned by Jay Cool,…

Silly Poem – Didn’t

Inspired by Jessica Rae Bergamino‘s poem ‘Did Rise’.   Didn’t get there in time. Didn’t get finished. Didn’t perfect it. Didn’t quite do what others seem to do wholly all of the time. Didn’t anybody else, ever, in the whole of human existence ever get any didn’ts? Don’t get it! Don’t get it at all!…

Savvy Poem – Enough

Reducing parts of myself to give the world more of myself, I find, when I look down at what’s left, there’s not enough left for myself, so I step out for a while to give the other half of me time enough to remind me that I am        more than and no…

Savvy Poem – A Storming Morning

Inspired by the phrase ‘storming morning’ coined by Fantasynovel1@wordpress.com, in the poem ‘Shattering’.   Storming into a morning that I know is not really there, I find myself nagged into wakefulness by the lure of a coffee, that I hope is not really there, by my side, waiting for me. Sure, I know, I’ll stir long…

A Savvy-Something Poem – Patiently Waiting

Inspired by ‘Silence’, a poem by C D Anders, published on The Unecessary Blog. Liberated, I become quieter, preferring my own solitude. What is there to scream about, when I am no longer subdued by the desperateness of the embarrassment of others? Others who, with everything to hide about themselves, seek to create identical others. Identical…

Savvy Poem – Cracked Wallpaper

With the lid on me twisted and tightened – to prevent leakages – the words on the wallpaper of my interior, crack. Copyright owned by Jay Cool, 3rd January, 2020   Image by congerdesign from Pixabay   Other posts by Jay Cool: Silly Adventure – Bunny Soup in Chilton Savvy Book – Paris Echo Savvy…

Silly-Savvy Poem – Night Thermos

Never been much of a night owl until this night. On this night, tonight, I can’t sleep. On this night, it’s so warm, I can smell the burning of the January heat. On this night, I give up on the sleep and get up to follow heat to the kitchen. I smell the burning of crusts,…
