One Year On…

Scooby on a family camping trip to the mainland. He was so excited to have been included that he didn’t mind at all being put on a lead for mealtimes along with his three canine companions.
He was one of the family – taken into the fold and cherished as much as if he were one of the children. Found abandoned on the streets of Newport to fend for himself, once he realised that he was with us to stay he soon made himself at home.
We miss him.
One year today…

Mirror to my Soul

Like the surface
Of a lake, my words
Sometimes mirror the sky –
With meringue-cloud mountains
On an azure sea,
they are pleasant
and floating freely.
Yet, at other times,
The agitated
Forest green counterpane
Barely contains the
Darkness and hidden demons
That lie beneath…

The Ten Most Painful Hobbies – 1. Straight to the Point

My fingers bear the scars.
I am
learning to needle felt –
that jabbing motion
sometimes gets a little…vigorous!
Who is it
that I am thinking of
I wonder?

Clarity

Art is our home. This door is open, always, to all, and yet permits not the entry of draft or rain. The doused may find solace, and repose, in the warmth of this hearth. For the sparks of these words - the spectres conjured by its incandescence - are a family whose love is unconditional, and will ever blaze, kindling within us the faith to weather these tempests. The ashes may then be scattered upon the winds - to ignite the lost, and unify our souls as one, in unquenched illumination; to be the light which guides us home, through the darkest of eclipse.
