Hi folks, thanks for staying with me. I’m trying to find an image that will reproduce on twitter so folk know it’s me but I don’t have to change it every time.
I hope you liked the story. I am still working on the poetry anthology and will need to cast the pantomime, probably by September. I’ll be back when I have something to report.
How’s this for a dramatic cover ? Love new mag. Continue reading Cover art
Looking for photos to try to use I came across this one from 1945. Maybe this will come out in twitter. Times have changed so much. This feels historic. Continue reading Once Upon a Time
Green fronds a curtain in the sky
Your branches stretched towards the light
So thick the birds all shelter there
And to the hanging feeders fly.
But ragged needles grow too high
Lawn struggles in your generous shade
Not trees, but hedge, was our demand
( Although the birds will wonder why)
Arboreal surgeons do their best
To slice and prune and chop the trees
And leave a flat-topped hedge instead
But still enough for birds to nest
Or, seeking sanctuary, they hide
And wait for suet, seeds and nuts
That hang from branches lower down
While we look on with grateful pride.
I had a photo of a wood pigeon that I think I have used before but hubby added a joke that I must share.
” Don’t you just hate it when a bird hogs the bathroom?”
