Sound of Silence – Apologies

Many of you will have noticed that I’ve been a bit quiet of late. This time of year is just so stressful and I find that just cramps my creativity.

I wanted to apologise for not blogging much or visiting other blogs. I do have some plans to write some more stories and poems soon, including my continuation of a murder mystery starring Miss Lemon, former secretary to Hercule Poirot, which was inspired by a recent trip to Agatha Christie’s home in Devon.

Check out the post here:

I was also inspired by the Word of the Day – NAKED, to share a song clip by Simon and Garfunkel, Sound of Silence.

Part of the lyric is “In the naked light I saw, 10,000 people, maybe more.”

Kira’s Sunday Scribbles – The Saga of the Incorrigible Ape.

20190714_160551

This poem was written in response to this great picture from Kira’s Sunday Scribbles.

It was a tale to be told,

A saga extreme,

Of a man who’d grown old,

And lived by a stream.

It was his secret escape,

His quiet retreat.

Then he met a mountain ape,

The one with big feet.

The giant lifted him up,

So tall and so lofty

and gave him a squeeze,

you might think him a softy.

Then to break all expectations,

Bigfoot swallowed him whole,

Despite the man’s protestations

He showed no control.

But he had his final revenge

And that’s without question

He gave that poor ape

Terrible indigestion.
