Lately, I've spent an hour of my Tuesdays with the Black Seed Writers Group, which convenes at 9.30 am in the basement of St Paul's Cathedral (Anglican/Episcopal) in Boston. During the last session, I produced an earlier version of this poem.

Brief Description

Cold March sky


slowly goes

from a slab of black


to a jewel of lucent indigo


tinged with rose

at the tree-scratched edges

Another fine sketch, this one delightfully lyrical.

Ooh, Black Seed! Members of Coo & Co are intrigued by the name of this writers group, Tommo. We like both the structure of this poem and its rich descriptions, particularly 'tree-scratched edges'. That is just right :>)

I like that :) The language brings a smile to my face... not sure how to explain why it does, but voilą... I really enjoyed this :)
