This is my blog (now there is a surprise!). I will be sticking in it poetry, prose, random musings, things that take my fancy and more than likely lots of pictures of cats. I hope you find something to amuse and/or interest you here.

Dodges WOW! a day late.

I apologise to everyone for my lack of activity yesterday.  I got a virus on my laptop and didn't dare use it until I had cleaned it out, I did not want to hand it round, hence my lack of visits.

JL, I am a day late but hopefully still acceptable! 

These prompts are from Dodge writes
and also a response to http://www.threewordwednesday.com/  whose words are:
Grace; noun: Simple elegance or refinement of movement; (in Christian belief) the free and unmerited favor of God, as manifested in the salvation of sinners and the bestowal of blessings; verb: Do honor or credit to (someone or something) by one's presence.

Jitter; noun: Feelings of extreme nervousness; slight irregular movement, variation, or unsteadiness, especially in an electrical signal or electronic device; verb: Act nervously.

Thin; adjective: Having opposite surfaces or sides close together; of little thickness or depth; (of a person) having little, or too little, flesh or fat on their body; having few parts or members relative to the area covered or filled; sparse. 

and http://write-a-letter-wednesday.blogspot.com/ This week's Write A Letter Wednesday prompt is to write a letter to someone telling them about where you live and why you like it... or why you don't!

For the three words I produced

thin sharp sound jitters
splitting chill air at dawns light
bird cheers the suns grace.



That moment of heart-stopping grace,
that  sliver-thin yet endless pause,
then heartbeat’s jitter resumes pace,
the feeling lives though gone the cause.

And while not exactly a letter, I produces this about where I live.

House And Home

My house is older than I am
It’s build of bricks and mortar hard,
the wood within is warped with time
the walls are chipped where time has scarred.

My home is where you smile at me,
where times are shared and laughter too,
where bonds grow stronger as days pass,
and I will always live with you.

Though time may tear the brickwork down
and we may be forced far apart
whatever happens, you should know
you’ll share the home within my heart.
