Treasured Measures

After a couple of days filled with issues and journeys to veterinary practices, left us with little time in which to sit and post. This is my first time posting without my usual noisy little bird behind me seeking attention. After years of caring for some birds I never fail to grow attached to each, … Continue reading Treasured Measures

Did You Ever

There are times when my mind wanders through what appears like fields of thoughts and endless questions. All seek to spend time filling space within an endless void, as it were.

In the novel I am certain as are many others, that Animal farm was using … Continue reading The Farm

Washed

There are times when no cover story will be enough to explain what the poem within is about or related to. In this case, such is not a situation or poem that has a cover story will explain. In this case I began with words or thoughts given from songs in the past few days, … Continue reading Washed

Sonnet of Home

I have been playing about with a certain thought for quiet a long time, that is to compose something worthy that speaks of my home town and still find it worth reading. For those who know, Irish names are more than a mouth full as we say, Certain words will find difficulty in finding rhyme … Continue reading Sonnet of Home
