So How Was Your Week?

We had a storm yesterday and the wind howled around the southwest corner of the house, which kept me awake. So I slept in. Walked the little dog first. Just because. I’d like to say it was mostly for his benefit, but there may also have been an element of writer’s displacement activity. The morning’s fresh and not very cold. I saw blackthorn blossom a few miles down our lane yesterday. Very early, just as last year I thought it would never arrive.

Once I had a cup of green tea (one friend asks why I drink grass!), and after opening a tin of tuna for some of the cats, I got down to poetry practice. I warmed up a bit with a haiku.

Daffodils face down
Lick the mud
Deep roots
Weather wind rock

That took all of a half hour of tooling around with two line, three line, then four line format for the total of fourteen syllables! But then I had another thought.
