The Spoons of Reality

Last night I decided to browse through some old papers, mainly containing poems and other little thoughts jotted down. I added a bunch of them to my poetry page. There's some silly flow-of-consciousness stuff, a few haiku, and one or two metre pieces I'm actually quite fond of (and had quite forgotten writing). I particularly like the one that begins 'Sweet night, beneath thy spell I lie'.

I've even added one more sonnet, although not one of my best by a long shot. Most of them aren't really anything special, although there are a few that I like, and almost sound pleasing. The last one (currently numbered XI) still manages to amaze me. Apparently I haven't written any sonnets since 2003, though. Like I've said before, I tend to be too lazy to tackle strict metres these days.

I've also rearranged the poetry pages some, so that the poems are now in more or less chronological order, and dated as far as possible. I usually strive to date all my writings, but not all the older papers have dates on them, I'm afraid.
