Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information

Pavements to fish
Out of water
Dissecting the lines between reality and imagination.
You are the missing link to my dreams
Having left behind in my childhood.
Fish out of water you wriggle in my mind
Leaving ripples that now re-surface time and time again
Out of water
Pavements to fish

More poetry please!

Help me out collaborators - so far it seems to be a bout chuggers but that could change, and its written in html, but that coulkd change too. Some more keywords listed at the end of the page



Waiting like roses they crouch at the end

of broad ways , never budging until they spring wryly

asking loud enough to scare the crows, will you be my friend

and donate to a cause involved in healing , not shyly

but chugging. You say 'Fie , go' I haven't the time


wearing my trainers at the end of my limbs 

my red shoes are at the menders while the callouses subside

and the white earphones of my mp4 player

well I'll be bouga'd 







fun yum


king's head

kiss the sky


virgin active 


a view

baby ceylon



change of heart




office dog



candy box

2 wheels good

the pharmacy

I do like the chugger poem Adrian, I almost forgive you for being a climate change sceptic.

Thanks James, I like this!

Incidentally Yeats has written a number of poems that feature fish who speak. Don't worry, I'm not misunderstanding your poem, just making the point that fish have some special signficance in our psyche.

Thursday is National Poetry Day.

NPD says

National Poetry Day 2011 is coming up fast - on Thursday October 6th. Our theme is GAMES. How will you use it - in a themed reading, a poetry marathon, a classroom poetry game or a poetry workshop? We'll be posting new ideas on our ticker tape, above. Share yours @poetrydayuk on Twitter, or find us on Facebook.

If you're running an event, please list it via our 'Add Your Event' page - thousands of people see our listings. Meanwhile, here's our own game - which poets wrote the words on our four postcard designs? Check soon to see how you can win a prize by identifying all four.

We're working with sister projects Winning Words and the Forward Prizes for Poetry to make the best of poetry's big day; use this site to help you plan your National Poetry Day celebrations with resources including lesson plans, listings and blogs in the coming days.
