Jaffa Cakes






What's that in the sky?

A giant Jaffa Cake as large as a Zeppelin... and it's coming this way.

The children screaming and excited in lesson released school yards across the land.

This is going to be a good day

The Human Race



The Race 


And some don't have a chance to tie a lace or stop to take in the view

I was fast once,  but now slowing faster than I ever thought imaginable

Someone to catch me if I cannot reach that distant, but nearing finishing line?

But I will continue to run, even if in someone else's smaller but energetic shoes

And for the human race too

The Gardener










The garden so peaceful and serene

A solitary figure digging the fresh earth so true and pure

Late Indian summer day gives way to darkness

The garden at peace the gardener released

Life after industrialisation





Sense, feel, industrial steel.

Tears at the winter graveside.

The mourners moving out of sight.

A solitary figure in poetic motionless grief.

Turn the page and look to the west.

A new dream and stream of heart warming consciousness.

Rest in peace.

Time to reflect










When I ran it was at pace, to the cornershop and the human race

Back in time, always free, to sit and wonder in simple harmony

I can still see you if you not me; memories still hold a treasured place

With grace and dignity I will go to that other place.

Apples



Just ate an apple as quick as a flash

From which tree it came I cannot tell

But I do declare it was not a pear

Another tomorrow? Well one cannot tell

boxes, thought and the walk to work



BREAKFAST:

Was up at 6:20am, then downstairs, quickly followed by Isabella, who insisted on Rice Krispies with organic semi-skimmed milk .I had Cornflakes. Isabella then wanted some natural Greek yoghurt. I had removed the lid, but Mrs B then informed me it was out of date! A spoonful had been consumed. Don't really buy into the sell by date thing, but apparently it was at least a week out!

Walk to Work:

Not posted in this format for several years. Have recently moved from our humble abode in Canton, Cardiff, to about a mile away in Llandaff. Anyway, same concept in that I walk to work. Drizzle was in the air. It was down Pencisely Road and then at the top of Cathedral Road I made my way into Pontcanna Fields.
A few early joggers around. Then over the pedestrian bridge and through the grounds of Cardiff Castle. It was then
down the river way walk and into my venue of income generation.
LUNCH
1 banana
4 ham sandwiches on brown bread.
Random Thought:I want to think again inside the box!
