January Challenge


I’ve never understood why January seems to be so universally hated. Surely it’s a good thing to ponder your past misdeeds and mistakes to inform your future actions? With the advent of ‘Dry January’ and all the other punishments people like to serve upon themselves, the world seems intent on making January as miserable as possible. So I decided to make myself a much more fun challenge – a Poem a Day based on a photograph a day. The only rule was that they were not allowed to be edited. Some are ok but some are woeful. But the challenge was met.

I'm a poet based in Bristol via Derry, St Andrews and Madrid. When I'm not writing or performing my own poetry, I'm reading or trotting about with my camera. There is sometimes drink taken.
