and tiny drops of rain
are jagged breaths of air.
Sea swells and angry tides
confide their bitterness to us.
Dry mouths without food,
are sat cross legged, swollen
on ruptured cracks,
feeding on breaths of air
while heat rises and crawling oceans
rage with less canopy to soothe
those savage flames.
Shadowless creatures scurry,
falling between the cracks
regularly bulldozed, and become mislaid –
lost to a civilisation
bereft of compassion, fed on
self serving plates of greed
and corruption that
co exist, as
man and beast should co exist –
and why hoards of humanity
starve, drown or bathe in their own plastic
prophets of doom
bubbling and strangling
everything in earth’s amniotic fluid,
sustaining only the havoc
we have wreaked.
Fascist dealers in this world
must change (or be removed)
like the orangutan,
four on an endless list,
before the climate changes us,
Spring rains enliven
Memories deeply sleeping

My small tribute to Dame Daphne Marjorie Sheldrick, DBE a Kenyan- British author, conservationist and expert in animal husbandry. She saved and nurtured many fragile species. She was a recognised authority on the rearing and reintegrating of wild creatures and was the first person to perfect the milk formula and necessary husbandry for both infant milk-dependent elephants and rhinos and a host of other species for over 30 years, finally losing her battle with Breast cancer. Both battles are close to my heart.
Flames die in the cold
For warm hearts to light the way
We are all orphans
Restrained to a mere particle,
a fleck in my eyes.
One blink, and you’re gone…
Doing the final preparations for my local Christmas Fair tomorrow. Into 2018 I will be sponsored for creating crafts for events and private orders. Looking forward to tomorrow! Here’s hoping we raise a lot of money. Thank you to all business and generous people who have donated so far.
Above is just a fraction of the things I have been working on for this fair, and moving forward, to raise money for Cancer sufferers everywhere. Please support me.
Please be generous, work your magic for cancer sufferers everywhere…
And I hope you all have a very happy holiday!
Hi. Periodically, I will be calling on friends here and the writing community at WordPress for your support and ask that you either simply text BGON64 to 70070 (for those here in the UK) and donate a small amount or use my donation button below (any country) to give whatever you can (even your next cuppa) to help us at Cancer Research and Breast Cancer Research. As a breast cancer survivor, I can sincerely say that your help is more than appreciated.
Cancer Research is not government funded and is responsible for a high percentage of the major breakthroughs we have seen to date. Without you and me, those breakthroughs will not happen. So don’t let this being UK based put you off donating. Regardless of your country, your generosity will one day give the gift of life to the world.
The Just Giving page is verification and will also tell you all about my own reasons and action plan for the foreseeable future.
Thank you very much!
I am taking a long break and hope you all have a lovely summer. I wish you all well with your writing endeavours, and thank you for your unstinting support.
We are celebrating our 5th Wedding Anniversary today.
Time bears no weakness
Strengthening bonds of our love
Ingrained in rainbows
