Greetings from Dayna

Post by thebluemoose » Fri Nov 30, 2012 8:24 pm

Hello forum-frequenters.

My name is Dayna and I am a long-term poet currently living in Worcestershire, UK.

I have not posted poetry on an online forum since I was stung several years ago by some trollers, it is nice to find this site and I look forward to sharing poetry with you all (yours and mine).

I have written my own (often secret) poetry since I was about 7, maybe earlier. I did not think this unusual until I met fellow writers, who tell me they starter later!

As a friendly conversation starter (or not if you would rather just say a casual 'hi!') I wonder how old you might have been when you wrote your first poem?

Hello Dayna,

Welcome on board.

I think there are early bloomers and late bloomers. :)

Aim, then, to be aimless.

Hi Dayna..welcome to PG.

I recall that I wrote one in primary school. I even remember the chorus.
But I did not write for many years..

We fray into the future, rarely wrought
Save in the tapestries of afterthought.

Hi Dayna

Welcome to P.G. I didn't start writing poetry until 14. I wrote the odd poem at school but never at home before that.

Hello Dayna, welcome to PG.

I wrote some of the usual teenage angst stuff ( a teenager of course). Then I had a long break from writing while I was busy living. I'm back now and writing far more middle-age angst stuff.

Look forward to reading your work,
