2022 Playground

Hi, in Pauls Poetry Playground https://playground.poetry.blog/2022/11/20 he has asked for contributions to this month’s and the last of this years Imaginarium group poem. The theme being the year 2022, we are asked to provide up to 12 lines beginning with either “This was the year of…” or “This was the year that…”. Here is my contribution, thanks for looking 🙂

This was the year of discovery and recovery

Twenty Twenty Two

but for some, a year of death and misery

a year of hypocrisy, invasion and migration

of numerous variants and vast inflation

while we observed the effects of climate alteration

and now there’s controversy with the World Cup situation.

In the UK we’ve had a glut of Prime Ministers

and the cost of electricity is bleeding us dry

there was joy in June celebrating the jubilee

but tears within months when we had to say goodbye

as a nation we joined together in mourning

but now we have hope with the rise of a king.

I was born and live in rural North Wales (UK) and found poetry again after a lifetime, so grateful I did :)
