This poetry was inspired by my favourite granite city, lovely family, BlueBeretGranny’s profiteroles (Mary Berry eat your heart out!) and one Christmas tree.
I already look forward to Christmas 2014!
She, who got into her head
that she was Midas’ daughter,
turned the gold of twilight to lead
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year everyone! I am taking a break from blogging until January. I need time to work on expanding my waistline (chocolate!), getting through the pile of books on my bed table, writing a poem a day for the next 30 days (yes, I like my personal challenges and yes, probably 99% of these poems will be haikus) and doodling.
See ya all in 2014! Have a Merry and Creative Christmas!
Lovely Stephanie from Beautiful Misbehaviour has published an interview with me. She writes a wonderful blog that focuses on creativity and motherhood so if you have not read it before you are missing out!
A warning – I may be revealing some dark writing secrets 🙂
There comes a time in every mother’s life when she steals her child’s last biscuit and she does not feel any remorse.
It is either the biscuit or her sanity.
Guilty as charged.
Just to Let You Know Dear Child
(After William Carlos Williams)
Mummy has eaten
the last biscuit
that was in
your tin box
you wanted to eat
instead of fish & chips
Sorry my child
it was yummy
