The Prompt: Comfort

I was absent from The Prompt’s return after its Summer Break.

Last week I wrote a poem inspired by a Post 40 Bloggers writing prompt. This week I felt a follow-up was needed as, as some of you rightly guessed, it was semi-autobiographical! If you saw my Instagram on Monday night you may also have guessed that things hadn’t quite gone to plan!   The week […]
