Poetry Moments--By Jan Allison--United Kingdom

shrouding the grave
my falling tears

rainbow at twilight
shimmering northern lights glow
Monet paints our skies

one single snowdrop
peeping through the thawing soil
sun shines through the clouds

Jan Allison is a relative newcomer to poetry. She didn’t start writing poetry until her husband was diagnosed with prostate cancer and underwent surgery at the end of 2013. She wrote her first poem ‘Splendid Isolation’ whilst he was in hospital. Since then has discovered a love of poetry and has written over 500 poems. Jan also wrote collaboratively with her writing partner Darren Watson under the name Jadazzle United.


  1. Jan,
    I really enjoyed these. I especially liked the rainbow one, as I adore rainbows.
    Your new friend,
