I remember looking at all those old photos in bygone travel books

Never did I think that one day I would  snap some of my own

Inside atmospheric buildings to streets steeped in history

Views from castles and shop windows that intrigue

I leave you in Kamnik with snippets to enjoy!

 

Snaps & thoughts from the Slovenian town of Kamnik by Mitch Hicks

Sod it!… Bloody hell!!!!

Lots more swear words # ***&***~~~~#+###

Remember the day yes remember

Poets need more than one efffffffing day a year

Remember that as you grab the last loo paper from the wall

I write not to order but like when the need is toooooo much to keep in

Again we are back in the loo 

I don’t want to write deep down in a coal mine or as a monster

But thoughts of a lusty woman in a hat and I’m all ink…

 

Poem and collage made from snaps I took in Berkhampstead today 2nd October (National Poetry Day). Rummaging around the town I found unsigned art, unloved in dusty old shops waiting for my camera to add life once more. Yet it was sad not to take any home. But their spirit now captured alive for ever more ….. Mitch

I want to write a symphony but I can’t write music

Maybe I can do it on camera

Layers yes layers of sound I lay down in snaps

No strings just walls, a tap above an unseen sink

From Hackney Wick the score is shot

I thank the Wick for a welcome chance to write my symphony 

Music… a collage and that sounds good to me
