Saturday Haiku\(Not) Haiku – An Elegy to Jenny

So it's been a long time, but I guess that's just how it is with me...………...apologies! So my Aunt Jenny has died after a long...………..far, far too long battle with Alzheimer's.

Sunday Haiku/(Not) Haiku #16

Happy new year everyone, I trust you've been well. I've decided to push out a little more haiku for you to ease yourselves into 2020.

It's bizarre really … Continue reading Sunday Haiku/(Not) Haiku #15

Sunday Haiku/(Not Haiku) #14

I'm writing to all you good people, today from the garden room, which quite frankly is under a particularly vicious assault from the elements. It’s seriously wet, with razor-sharp drips being blown sideways by the usual gale-force winds. It’s purty bleak and has been literally all day. Bizarrely I was up at 7.30 (I know … Continue reading Sunday Haiku/(Not Haiku) #14

Sunday Haiku/(Not) Haiku #13

All of a sudden, the "indian summer" of the last the last posting seems like years ago. I don't know, maybe it happened to somebody else; looking out at the garden, any warmth is having to fight a rear-guard action against the creeping menace of autumn. It feels like its's time to begin battening down … Continue reading Sunday Haiku/(Not) Haiku #13
