Sitting under a tree in Museum Gardens writing poetry with @InTheLighthouse.

The history you’ve seen

Permanent spectator. Mute

Yet sharing wisdom


Weary burdens have

Twisted and scarred and yet fresh

Leaves show strength and fight


Arms reach out, tracing

Paths explored in the fruitful

Quest for light and life.


Overhead on a walk:

“You keep chasing me but you’ll never catch me”

“I know”

“Why do you do it?”

“Because it’s fun”

When do you last do something just because it’s fun?


Watching a video message from a friend on the other side of the world and sharing cups of tea with friends who feel like family.


Noticing words.  The difference between “put to bed” and “put to sleep” (an important difference if you happen to be talking about people’s children…). Words which capture something very specific. Words to use more often. Words to inspire.
