So its a new week and for me that brings a hectic monday with quite a lot going on including my Landlord coming to visit followed by a hearing test with a specialist at the Hospital. I am hopeful that I might find some time for poetry amongst that as I have so many ideas that need some attention. I hope you all have a great week. KT
So today I became a War Pensioner, back dated to January this year (2016). I have to say that it feels very odd at my tender age of 50 and something I never envisaged would happen to me when I joined the British Army at 16 years old. I guess that means I can officially tell war stories in the pub...or perhaps I can just put it all behind me now and move forward with my life. I would like to thank Lisa for all her support over the last year or so as I anguished over the paperwork and endless medical appointments.
This morning the world looked bright and crisp, through my drug fogged haze as I woke. I wonder when I will ever quench this eternal thirst. Am I becoming obsessed with my poetry or is my poetry becoming obsessed with me?
