Ask and I will


Ask and I will paint youScreen Shot 2018-09-08 at 10.24.22 a picture

of star smiles, of green ice bleeding,

a sky of colours sailing

into perfumed nights,

trees swaying, a dance of cool water.

May life be like poetry,

words in the fiery wind.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

      1. It’s Sundays they all turn out en masse. Husband jumped out of the window after one of them yesterday. He was not only walking down by the hedge but shooting! He killed a rabbit, or some brown animal. I yelled at him to get out and husband leapt after him and photographed him. I hate these people.

      2. The dogs chased a cat (not ours) but were called off. I suppose they’d see us coming, but it means Finbar can’t be out—he’d start a massive dog fight. I worry about them lurking in the next field and hearing us walking past the hedge. Not being able to see doesn’t stop them shooting. There are laws about how close they’re allowed to get to habitations, but they are never respected. The gun lobby rules here too.
