Throwback Friday – Spring Shower – Eric (EDC Writing)

‘Spring Shower’ – a light one…

Go Dog Go Café

‘Spring Shower’  first fell into place two years ago this week – this its first time at the Cafe.

….. 

Red kites ever circling
crapping on the washing
big birds no argument
quick cycle re-hang
damn it now it’s raining

Doves on the fence
at it don’t they ever stop
clouds rung dry again
washing takes a tumble
irony sinks in

Robin there’s always one
beak points to wet soil
kneel and trowel obediently
red breast a foot away
sun kissed distant memory

Throwback Friday – Care Guide – Eric (EDC Writing)

A ‘poem and a line’ hung separately before, re-aired at the ‘Go Dog Go Cafe’ today…

Go Dog Go Café

‘Poem and a line’ –  an early 2018 poem and a six word line – a light care guide to laundry! 

…..

Care guide no use
hand rub squeeze tight
deep soak wet through
hot wash why rush
spin-cycles least two
well-conditioned hell yes
iron best wrinkle free
airing-cupboard tight fit
while here clean sheets
okay mister don’t mess up
damn you’re doing it again

#

She’s a tickle… he’s an itch

Throwback Friday – Life’s Light – Eric (EDC Writing)

Life’s light felt right to post again over at the Cafe…

Go Dog Go Café

Grey autumn day
clouds as far as eyes can see
breeze swept trees shake off leaves
smoke swirls from log-fired chimneys

Arm in arm they walk
snuggled close to share their warmth
each complete with one another
for them there is no other

The path they tread now clear ahead
past diversions left behind them
a footstep from the door they pause
embrace give looks that say it all

The key their love he sweeps her up
lips touch across the threshold
life’s light within first sign of spring
winter closed the door behind them

…..

Still time to submit your writing to Free Verse Revolution for the January theme -‘Earth’

FREE VERSE REVOLUTION

Dear readers & contributors,

January is proving to be a long month on FVR and so submissions have slowed down.

I still have 6 spaces left for contributing writers and I would love to fill them with your work!

If you are interested please see the guidelines on our submissions page.

Happy writing!

Dear Boris Johnson, I’ve Had A Couple Of Thoughts…

Author Lucy Brazier has thoughts on Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s priorities – eminently sensible from a not to be messed with Englishwoman of the highest order (albeit quite short though) – hat’s off to Lucy and all Nans out there! Read on for smiles and education!

Lucy Brazier

… And I’d like to I share them with you. I don’t know much about running a country, or how to get out of the EU, or what to do about the NHS. But I do know a few other things which I think you might find useful.

One of the things I know about is hats and what a remarkable force for good they can be. Very often when I go out and about in my best hats, people stop and comment on how nice they are and ask where I got them. A good hat is an excellent conversation starter between perfect strangers and also offers marvellous opportunities for polite discourse. Not only am I able to pass on details of my milliner – an independent trader, thereby stimulating the local economy – I am able to return a similar extolment to my new friend, perhaps complimenting their…
