Poem: What About Afterwards.

What About Afterwards. . . Do people change When they die And go to heaven Or are they the same Spiteful nasty creatures That they are now Only in nicer accommodations. . .

Poem: Thoughts At Night.

Thoughts At Night. . . It’s twenty to two And I am still awake, Listening to your soft breath While you deeply sleep. Everything is still and quiet, With only the tick of the clock And the odd passing car To keep me company As I lie here warm beside you, Grateful for all that […]

The Magic Of Worm Charming.

Hey, . Well, after a yesterday of deluge, the sun is now shining benignly down upon a world of puddles. Everything is newly washed down and pretty, all of the normal dust and detritus is gone and the streets are newly minted. Lovely! . It was quite exciting on the drive to the hospital yesterday […]

A Plague Of Noxious Smog.

Poem: The Captain Of Your Ship.

The Captain Of Your Ship. . . Be responsible for all you do, Make your own free choices, Commit to your own mistakes And take it like a man. No-one can ever know When unseen icebergs will strike But you can stand at the helm And steer by a good star. . .

Busy Day Today.

Hi, . This is a very late post because we have spent the day in the hospital. We got there at ten and finally left at five. . It has been an exhausting day and very emotional for us too. I was a bit worried about Big H getting so tired because he started going […]

Poem: Carnie Shill.

Carnie Shill. . Have you ever wondered Why we all take it so personally, Fate does not deliberately decide To pick on one of us especially. It is all a game of chance A throw of weighted dice A game of pitch and toss. Life is a travelling salesman In a cheap brown suit Who […]
