Theme - Second chances 

When’s the last time you called someone who pissed you off? Turned an ex back into a friend? Held a hand out to someone over the political divide, even if it stings a little? Helped the old man all the way across the street after leaving him stuck halfway overnight? 

Many of us are realising what or who we care to lose. H.G Wells said that “the crisis of today is the joke of tomorrow.” Maybe you’re sharing that joke with people and situations you thought were entirely consigned to The Big Book Of Regret In Our Head. Or perhaps someone’s taken a second chance on you. Doesn’t matter. Write about it. We want poems that discuss the feeling and tangible touch of a relationship that really, in the grey light of disaster, just couldn’t be sacrificed.
