Woke up to a lovely clear morning had coffee in bed watching the sun come up, then made more coffee and took it with me while I went and checked on the horses (lol excuse to spend time in the sun before work ;-) ) Had a very busy day in work and was on my own for the best part of it, came home the long way round due to a bad accident on the M53 motorway this morning, cooked dinner and put the fermantation stopper and fininings in our apple wine, spent the rest of the evening listening to music and reading

Bill Madden – Francesca


In her patterned
Dishabille
Of flowered flea
Market dresses
A naked limb
An arm, a leg
A breast, and yet her
Face not in the frame
Francesca
The mystery begins
Ghostly images
Appear like
Gossamer blurred
Apparitions
Velvet, fur
Taffeta, tulle
A shutter blinks
You dissolve into yourself
Francesca
Your secret is hidden
Life she said, is like
Old coffee-cup sediment
Almost thirty years
And now
I’m looking down
From a similar window
As you leapt
To the littered street
I wonder what release
Was in your mind
Francesca
That cold
That cold
That cold January
All she left
Are negatives
And silver gelatin
All she left
Are negatives
And silver gelatin

Went To Check On The Horses This Morning

And what a beautiful morning it was too, took my coffee with me this morning and went to check on the horses, I could have spent the rest of the day sat in the sun watching the horses do what horses do
