File it.

Just written three more poems and realised I have many in different places, files, notebooks,scraps of paper, the computer, back of the kitchen diary -in fact, anywhere I happened to be when the mood took me or when I spotted a competition on line.

So it is time I searched for them and collected them together in a poetry file.

Trouble is, I’m not sure if I can reuse some of them. Those that are already published can be spoken out loud at folk clubs but those that are waiting to be judged should not be shown anywhere else until the competition has ended. Making a catalogue is not easy for me. I try to list what I have sent away but forget the ones I still have.

Now is the time! If I get a brand new file and label it POETRY I may eventually have enough for an anthology.
