Unravelling 202011132144

Ah yes, the great outdoors

Beckoning softly as my mind unravels,
Like a toilet roll bouncing
Down a gentle-sloping, grassy hill…

And the neighbours may have noticed,
If they look through my window…

Assuming its a window,
And not a taped-up photo of a rare sunny day
Of what life might be like if the sun was outside my window,
As seen through my window…

Or maybe my life is the window
And I’m looking through the world,
Wondering why the little pigeon is sat on the sill…

What a silly pigeon,
Sitting on a window sill,
Do you feel my pane… [o]

Writer’s Block 202004120652

Imagine, if you will…

You’re here
An icy desert, a thought wasteland.

All around, snow and more snow.
Endless potential and certain death.

Not a penguin for miles.
No one to ‘Arctic-ulate’ the pain you feel.

Obstacles are here
Like polar bears and frostbite –
Best not to think too hard.

Distractions are like warm fires –
Rather nice but they melt the ice
And leave you with nothing to stand on.

Creative blocks, on the other hand,
Like blocks of snow
Can save your life…

If used to build an igloo [o]

Wardrobe Malfunction 202101311732 

Technically, it was…

A pair of misbehaving new socks…
A new pair of misbehaving socks…
A misbehaving pair of new socks…
A new misbehaving pair of socks…

Anyway, the socks sucked!

So I shall make a fresh attempt this evening

With fresh socks [o]
