Morning walks

I was walking

Swishing flies

When it hit me

The voice had gone

I tried to find it

It had left

The one that said




The one that said



Might be


Has been replaced with



I will…”

It still hasn’t come back

That other voice

I don’t think it will

And if it does I’ll just ignore it

  1. I. Love. This! Yes! I would hope everyone would have this experience, but especially in these mind-numbing days. “I’ll just ignore it.” Now that’s a habit worth cultivating!

  2. There’s nothing like walking outside to turn the voices off, Jase and I took a 3 hour hike yesterday. As soon as I got back in the house the crowd started yelling again, I shut them up with a piece of chocolate 🙂

  3. Kate, this is a very lovely poem, extremely deep, insightful and a fantastic way to squash that inner voice when it tries to do us more harm than good! I notice that you have written several impressive motivational poems this month in April, including two other favourites of mine ‘It is our nature to be artists’ and ‘Highlight Highs don’t last as the days slip by’. I have an inspirational poetry journal called “Auroras & Blossoms Poetry Journal” that has just published its third issue and we are running a special NaPoWriMo Anthology issue for inspirational poems written in NaPoWriMo 2020. If you are interested in submitting any of the wonderful poems of yours that I just mentioned (including Morning walks) into the Anthology for publication then you can find more details below. We are also open to regular submissions all year round as well for inspirational poetry submissions.

    Hope you take the time to check us out, I’m sure our readers would love to get a chance to enjoy reading your poetry 🙂
