Yesterday’s post about the German wings plane crash has had a lot of negative comments. Every one is entitled to their opinion and maybe I have worded it wrong (I was angry when I wrote it!). Just to be clear, it is the way the media has portrayed depression that I object to, the use of “Mad Man” in the Sun newspaper etc which is why I linked to a front page of a newspaper. I am fully aware there needs to be an investigation to try and find out what happened, the family’s are owed at least that. I also agree that mental health as well as physical health should be considered before someone is put in charge of all those people. As I said in my post yesterday, it is the generalization of depression I object to.
Anyway, on wards and upwards.
I have been getting into writing micro poetry (some of it is in my new book, Small Writing’s). This is mainly because of Twitter. People put prompts up and you write a poem using that prompt. As you can imagine, some work out better than others and you only have a limited character space but I like the challenge : ) I’ll write the prompt we were given below the poem’s I put up.
Lighting a cigarette,
You blow smoke rings
But, gradually they form into hearts
Silently showing me your love.
Prompt: Smoke rings
