Getting there – Poem and a line

Blooded chocolate
traced cleavage
tongue bite
gentler please
another square
getting there

The Man Behind Head Porter – Paul Butterworth

Couldn’t see a way to leave a comment – but wanted to say this – enduring friendship, the truest form of chemistry …

Lucy Brazier

Many of you will know Paul Butterworth as our own, dear Head Porter. You may even recognise him from both the big and small screen in The Full Monty, Frank, Doctors and – perhaps most impressively of all – the Country Life Butter advert with John Lydon. Here he is, in his own words…

It all started after a particularly smelly biology lesson when we had been dissecting a rat, in those days schools bred their own rats for A level dissection. The chemistry lesson when we secretly made some liquid concoction that would explode on contact when dry was fun as the teacher skipped about the classroom… but what really did it was pulling apart a daffodil.

In one of those revelatory moments it suddenly became clear in my 17 year old befuddled brain that I’d much rather be reciting Wordsworth’s…

I wandered lonely as a cloud

Poem – Six Word Miscellany #3

Out of the blue her eyes

The games hearts play so dangerous

Lips unzipped for tongue tip sips

Laid exhausted by young wanton wiles

Need defies the lines of years

Searched for meaning through inked fingertips

Her intentions lies no longer hide

One of many no way him

Mirror says old bald move on

Six word lines and stories – if they come from one mind do they relate? I believe so, miscellany at play, in time and space. A click and you’re into miscellanies #1 and #2.

Weather forecast good for England, a new patio being laid, in between making the workmen’s tea maybe I’ll be reading your words over at the Go Dog Go Cafe?

A Walk In The Woods…Available To Pre-order Now!

I’ve pre-ordered mine!

estherchiltonblog

I’m thrilled to announce that my latest book of short stories, A Walk In The Woods, is due to be released on April 20th 2019 – and it’s available to pre-order on Amazon now.

Here’s a little bit more about it:

An
autumnal stroll through the woods, colourful leaves crunching underfoot, the
air fresh on the face, laughter and lightness portraying a happy mother and
daughter scene. But something isn’t right…

A
young boy who thought he knew his parents finds out that he doesn’t know them
at all.

Have
you ever wondered what it would be like to die and then to look down upon
yourself?

These
are just a few of the scenes and scenarios found in A Walk In The Woods and other short stories. There are stories to
make you smile, tales to bring a tear and stories to shock as well as delight.
