The Wednesday Poem and the Local Cultural Round up - Five Words

Five words

I love you.
I'm Sorry.

The purpose of a poem is to paint a picture in your mind. Can this be done in five words. Five words. Five sort words. I suppose a pedant would say five and a half words as "I'm" is an abbreviation. When you see this what do you think? It could be contrition after an act of betrayal, or it could be a tender last message to a much loved moggy as the vet humanely eases it out of its misery. I am sure it is something we'll all say at some point and I'm sure that it will be difficult and heartfelt. But then it could be a throwaway line, at the end of a text message when you've forgotten to send your partner a bunch of flowers on their birthday or even a rock star announcing their retirement. Five simple words. What picture does it paint for you?

The local cultural round up.

If like me, you are heartily sick of politics, here's some other stuff that is far more fun!
