Wash Them Down With Water

Blossom Blooms Again

I love this time of year when blossom can be seen everywhere about my local town. I can’t help but think of lines for poems when I see it. Once again it’s inspired a Haiku and I hope you enjoy it. Just above our heads Is a bounty of beauty, Lift your gaze and see.

I had a slight slump last week with concerns to my writing but it is true if you look for it, you can find inspiration anywhere. My inspiration came from a flock of thirteen magpies all flying and running around the roofs by my block of flats. I have to admit, despite their bad rap,Continue reading “A Mischief of Magpies”

I Want to Love

Over a year since the break-up of my marriage, I am content in my own company and my happiness is no longer dependent on being connected with another.  This does not mean I do not want another relationship but simply I do not ‘need’ it to feel fulfilled.However, I cannot deny there are walls inContinue reading “I Want to Love”
