pen a poem


the gaping hole
left in your soul
when hope is gone


Have a peaceful day




Those lines that I before have writ do lie,
Even those that said I could not love you dearer:
Yet then my judgment knew no reason why
My most full flame should afterwards burn clearer.
But reckoning Time, whose million’d accidents
Creep in ‘twixt vows, and change decrees of kings,
Tan sacred beauty, blunt the sharp’st intents,
Divert strong minds to the course of altering things;
Alas! why, fearing of Time’s tyranny,
Might I not then say, ‘Now I love you best,’
When I was certain o’er incertainty,
Crowning the present, doubting of the rest?
Love is a babe, then might I not say so,
To give full growth to that which still doth grow?

Shakespeare’s Sonnets – Sonnet 115

Though oft battle fought and scars deep, love still alive. Today love remembered and vows renewed.

Have a peaceful day



Reminded this morning that laughter is as important to restoring health as sleep. Alongside those exercises can practise smiling and a good laughing workout. Not quite sure why sometimes a situation can prompt tears of laughter and yet another day indifferent puzzlement as to what was funny. Guess those switches in our heads are sometimes up and sometimes down.

I have 80 more words but they can be carried forward like annual leave to use in an emergency when otherwise work would make a demand. Not quite the same but close enough and ..,.  Now just 43 remain. Why if I just tap a few more then 30. If I start to countdown then will reach target albeit poorly specified for that to be true. No matter twenty nine, twenty eight , twenty seven, 26,25,24,23,22, 21, … Ten,nine,eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, done.

Have a fun day


pen a verse

Let the words come
Tripping and skipping
Dancing onto the page
Seeking approval from no one
Don’t chain and constrain them
Holding them back b
y considered thought

To pen a  few words ,after initial freedom, has proved as challenging as more . Desire for excellence or perhaps avoidance of criticism stopping this just being fun. Do you prefer “Why chain and constrain them” to final choice? Does it matter. Whether it does or not , “please myself” is going to be lesson for today.

Have a good day



Today I thought I would look back a year and see what word had come to mind. Well it was complain and a timely reminder how easy it is to grumble with friends about lifes injustices mostly minor to pass the time of day. Time to try that 30 day challenge , maybe this time I will at least manage 30 hours without a complaint uttering from my lips. We shall see.

Have a nice day
