My weather is not delicate, soft and lukewarm.
My summer is not a light brush of shoulders in between crowded doors,
Or a gentle, light laugh that shyly forms
In low-tide waters far from shores.

Loot Crate is a monthly subscription service, and are looking for people to share their “Dream Crate”. I had to add my bookworm box to the mix! My Dream Crate would, of course, be a Fantasy box, with various items inspired by fantasy books; specifically (as this is a “dream” crate) my favourite fantasy books!

The first month of 2017 is finished, and with it, has come the start of a new semester, plenty of uni reading, and not a whole lot of free time! I still managed to read a few books, although most on this list have been read for my uni course.

“In the month of Nisan in the twentieth year of King Artaxerxes, when wine was brought for him, I took the wine and gave it to the king. I had not been sad in his presence before” (Neh 2:1)
Four months had passed, since Nehemiah had heard the news about Jerusalem, when he went to the king. This quite surprised me when I first read it. After the clear pain in the weeping and praying of Nehemiah in chapter 1, how could he wait so long to ask for help?

I very recently (as in today) started doing blackout poetry.
Poetry is something that I have been increasingly enjoying to read and write for a little while. I would still call myself a big Amateur (with a capital A!), but I still find it really therapeutic and fun.
I came across blackout poetry a long time ago, but have only just started it for myself. And I am loving it, and already feel like I have gained something from doing it. So I thought I would share a little about it, what you need to do, and why I am loving it so much (from a very clearly experienced poet, obviously!!).
