Six Words for Saturday – Catching Up

28.12.13

Peaceful
moments alone.
Pen to paper.

Not sleeping – alone

Early hours insomnia –
Writing more inviting than
My cold bed.

s…ea-motion

How beautiful is this moment?

Playing catch me with the tide,

The beach a stretch of ochred crescent

Just me and an ocean of sighs.

Cowes Week Fireworks

Am I
the only one
who gets a little
apprehensive around
FIREWORKS?
I feel anxious
for the person letting them off –
what if
they don’t light properly?
What if
they land on my head?
I even
worry at big organised events.
Last night
I avoided
Cowes
like
the
plague…

At Tinker’s Coppice

We walk up the old railway track until we get to Tinker’s Coppice Crossing. I lean on the gate my companion by my side, “Me and Dylan used to live here Scoobs!” I realise my mistake as soon as the words have left my mouth…Scooby is gone. Dylan is too. My two boys are boxes of dust on my bookshelf. Rosie is a lovely dog but she is just borrowed for the week.
We stand there buffeted by a chill autumnal wind. Even the ivy clings on to its support for dear life – like some multi-handed tree hugger. We start to amble back home and on the ancient trees the creepers have grown conker-casing armour to keep out unwanted attention.
Looking upwards I blink as the rain fills my eyes. I feel…
insignificant.

Being Margaret

A lighthearted look at life on any given day

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.
