I'm truly jazzed to say that I have been voted Southend's Bus Balladeer. I entered a poem on the theme of travel to their competition, and was chosen as the winner. I'm really honoured. And what a great way to celebrate #worldpoetryday!
You can read more about it here, but the poem is also pasted below. Thank you to the judges!
Aboard the bus
which lumbers and rumbles into view;
what daydreams we make through other windows.
Look up from the phone,
a space for thoughts to grow.
You look at people’s houses,
Whizz past and they’re gone, forgotten, lost;
until this time tomorrow.
