I write what I feel…




There is Editing and ‘Editing’. I have always thought of myself as a good editor.

I was invited to write an article for a certain online magazine which I was very pleased and proud to do. This has backfired in that, although I took the greatest care with the finished product, I found on seeing the published version that ‘editing’ had taken place by the publishers, some of which was very carelessly done. Obviously the ‘editor’ didn’t read and check the changes for grammatical errors. I am a perfectionist and am ashamed that this poorly edited version of my article has appeared on the internet.

This explanation is for those of you who may have seen the opinion piece.

Winter’s Almost Here

Winter's Almost Here

Winter’s Almost Here

Winter’s Almost Here


Striptease trees whose leaves

Fall on semi naked ground

Auburn has darkened to shades of brown

While yellows and reds have all but gone

The long days of summer topped and tailed

Tho’ what is left is still warm as toast

Where the wind cannot reach us

Straining to grasp us as we linger

In our shelter under the wilting sun.

Earth Mother


Patiently nurturing body and soul

Fostering the feeling of coming home

Loving and giving her all

That they know she’ll be there forever

Fulfilling their wants and meeting their needs

So please, please don’t abuse her trust

Nor assume her kindness without return

Or Mother Earth will burn away

With no-thing left for another day
