Last week when I talked about November I was surprised to see how many of my readers liked this morose month and so one day I decided to try something new …
I wrapped Peanut up in blankets:
- he turned into a raging banshee
- I took ten deep breaths
- he showed signs of being open to bribery
- I bribed him with with some dried fruit (this strategy works like a charm) and at the same time I corrupted his wee innocent soul …again
- we went for a walk
My mission was to become friends with November.
How did it go? I will leave it up to you to decide.
Here are some snippets from my diary entries from the last few days:
morning air pinched
electric eels reel
at our feet
at Waverley Station
hummingbirds flutter inside
frost turns broken glass into art
A Piece of Advice for All Masterchef Hopefuls
If in doubt
If you enjoy my poetry you may like my collection Letters to Peanut, now available both as an e-book and in paperback.
