Musing

To Be a Detective

To be a detective deerstalker and pipe or natty moustache Curious about your blood type 🌑 Quirkily snooping to find the clues The devious poison may have been hidden in the booze 🌑 With the telltale scuff on the shoes the criminal will surely lose

The Story

This Morn

This morn a glorious morn a tumultuous tussle between our Cat and next doors the Sun showed it’s happy face opening the heart and much much more The Birds were an orchestra of delight in harmony complimenting the glittering Light A gentle Breeze filled the air as if all our dreams had come together in […]

The Dead of Night

Mourning

Should we mourn days gone loves lost opportunities missed the ones we didn’t kiss We are human so mourn we will This bitter pill with an aftertaste that leads downhill Closure is needed the antidote to the pill Then we can stride back up the hill

The Feather

The Cat pounces the Bird ducks this really is an uneven match The Bird dances and weaves this way and that The desperate Cat can’t land a scratch 🌑 As the Cat runs out of puff it is open to its spritely foe The feathered master of Bird-Jitsu lands an almighty knock out flying blow
