Social Distancing

        I’ve found a way to keep people at bay When having a walk, my one-a-day, I will just add that when I gad Cold weather tends to ‘shrink’ a tad.

Self Isolation

I haven’t visited here for ages and a lot has changed. Still, let’s carry on regardless – in self isolation.     Reflections on self isolation I’ve looked at the books I’ve dusted the books I’ve looked at the books in a mirror I’ve looked at the grass I’ve counted the grass I’ve looked at […]


People distress me who are pressed and compressed No matter what their age So pray don’t depress me, please be progressed So says this silly old sage. . . . . .

She gazed with much affection. “Avast behind!” broke her peace of mind, She glared in all directions, Then saw the source, oh yes, of course! A pirate of fair complexion. She began to flirt and twirled her […]


CONTRARIETY Hidden away in a secret valley somehow keeping warm Developing and controlling the uncontrollable brain storm Safely separate from all the peeps and content to be alone Yet placing very carefully the makings of stepping stones. WHEN TO CAST A CLOUT There are signs that the season of hibernation is coming to an end […]
