Charlie Ulyatt - Poems 2011

After posting the larger bulk of my old poems here, I thought I would dedicate a page to poems that I write this year. It's been a few years since I put any time into writing poetry but made a determination to write more this year. The following are the results so far (newest at the top) and I will keep updating as work progresses:

Changing

A barren twig,
first buds.

Journey

Travelling backwards,
the houses built around you
awaiting the final nail;
the slight incline to complete your journey.

Hunger

The food fell slowly
from his fork;
his mouth open
wide,
wider,
until all emptiness
had been swallowed;
his hunger satisfied.

I really like "Hunger." It sort of reminds me of a teenage boy. I also appreciate your use of linebreaks. The shape of the poem is almost like an open mouth. In addition to this, you've used correct punctuation in your poems. It's amazing how many people think that they can completely ignore punctuation when writing poetry. For this you get major props. ;)

I really liked Journey, that last line just completes it :)
