It is her special interest!

This morning she was in a poetry mood so she came out with poem after poem after poem! Here is one.

Today cannot be yesterday
Nor can it be tomorrow,
In future times
You might say "No"
Whatever path I follow.

The "Maybe" you say currently
Outdates your last reply-
But I doubt I'll hang around and wait--

Your "Hello" might mean "Goodbye"!

Covid Fever.

My neighbours think I'm potty
I'm standing in the rain
Wearing a yellow onepiece -
They think I am insane.
Surrounded by my floating ducks
And umpteen ferrile cats
I'm not really insane at all -
But maybe going bats!!


(One can see that I have an interesting life! None of us in my family could be considered as "Normal".)

Covid Isolation And Frustration

Wrap me up a parcel
And send it with your regards,
Then if I'm feeling generous
I'll post you a lot of cards.

I've washed my hands 'til
I'm squeaky clean,
I'm masked, gelled, awaiting
This COVID 19.

Holed up in a tavern
Or alone in a cavern
Is how things might end,
Due to covid, my friend.

The Brother.
Earning money isn't funny,
Winning it is better:
But if I really need some help,
I'll send a begging letter.

At The Prospect Of Half An Hour Queue At A Supermarket

I'd feast on butter
If I was a nutter
But I prefer marge
And staying at large!
"Going home!"

She has just written a load more faster then I can type. She used to drive her Dad crazy because as a child of the age of about nine, her whole communication in EVERYTHING she said was in poetic form of verse. It was how she spoke. She could read and write at the age of two and a half onwards. So once she starts I can't keep up typing the things! Hahaha!

She loves words! Her mind works in words. She thinks in word form. She does maths writing sums out in word form! Everything is written with her.
I think best in picture form. I look for the pictures in a book. I can reject a book because there are no pictures or drawings to give my mind something to latch onto inbetween the masses of words.

I'm more a "word man" myself----though, sometimes, SEEING something helps me to understand something because it illustrates that "something."

She normally writes books but she has had the odd poem published in the past. She also had her own newspaper column at one time writing under a different username. Those who knew her writing style knew it was her but most people never knew.
