Dear Mum

You beauty

stilettos beyond 70

always slim

no wrinkles

as I see in my face now

Like a child you

unburdened yourself

when illness struck

but you knew didn’t you

how vulnerable we were in this world

I see you looking down from your cloud

Your daughter Christine xx



Love Letters


The soothing feel of a hand written page on soft paper.

A dear one’s words committed by hand.

From their hand to your hand a personal touch.

Their emotions absorbed there, their love sealed for only you to open.

A scented sheet with kisses at the end.


Prompt SOOTHE from Sunday Scribblings.


Whole Fish And Little But Fish


Two whole gutted fish

stuffed with garlic and chillies

recline on my plate

eyes gaze at me in reproach

that the tail no longer swims.


Prompt from the New York Times
