Friday the 13th

Today is Friday the 13th. Here’s a Haiku I wrote a little while back. Sending love and luck on behalf of black cats everywhere. They’re really nice, I promise. Have a great day! love Jennabellatrix. xo



Ian Anderson Happy Birthday

Hi all, I actually made this little collaged “card” and wrote the Haiku for his birthday last year, but since you guys here on WordPress haven’t seen it before I thought I’d post it.

Wishing Ian a very Happy 70th Birthday…and many more to come! Technically, a little late as it’s the 11th here now but, hopefully, it’s still the 10th over on his side of the world. Happy Birthday Ian. Cheers, Jennabellatrix.


And here’s the “card” I made this year. I just love the hair! Did I mention Ian is the reason I took up the flute? Thank you and Happy Birthday Ian, Cheers, Jennabellatrix.



I’ve been having a lazy weekend and it’s been pouring rain so this haiku I posted a little while back on Instagram came to mind.

Sometimes waiting is all you can do. Still, it doesn’t have to be a waste of time. Find something else to do in the meantime. Love Jennabellatrix.




Here is my most recent poem which is a Haiku. I’ll be working my way backwards a little bit so that you get to see all of my work but I will also be posting new stuff as I come up with it. I recently decided I would try to post at least one poem a day on Instagram but sometimes it’s easier said than done…life can get in the way occasionally. Then, of course,  there is also the fact that I am often working on several poems at once: some sit around for ages waiting to be finished, some are forgotten completely and then rediscovered, and others just come to me in a flash of inspiration (hopefully not in the middle of the night. This is, however, often the most fruitful time of “day” …as soon as my head hits the pillow, something switches on and I have to leap out of bed to write down a line or a lyric).  Such scenarios are, no doubt, all too familiar to many of you other writers out there. Anyway, here is the Haiku (non-traditional but still following the guidelines of 3 lines with 5,7,5 syllables).

Cheers for now, Jennabellatrix.IMG_1702

Jennabellatrix Original Poetry

Hello and welcome to my Poetry Site.

I absolutely love to write poetry and I would dearly love to share it with you. I, currently, predominantly share it on Instagram and I will continue to do so, however, I have decided I would like also to revisit some if my earlier efforts whilst at the same time, expanding what I am currently doing….this is very much a journey for me.

This, for me, is a learning experience and I therefore, by no means, consider myself an expert, or even a “poet” for that matter but I do love to write, to tell little stories and I hope you will enjoy reading them…so here we go. Join me.
