Love is ...

Stopping for coffee in different places can prompt all sorts of creative writing. 

Rose Lane
The confetti bride,
Stood in silent wonder,
Contemplating a life,
Her life, her story,
Her time.
Her chance,
Maybe her last chance?
Of love with the man she abandoned
Forty years ago.
Scared now, like then,
Excited now, like then.
Salvaging the regret
Of impulsive youth,
A love
Held within a broken heart
For forty years!
In the garden centre
They meet again
Next to the cherry blossom
The last bloom
Of the season.

Happy St Valentine's Day.

Stairway to heaven ...

The domestic goddess has many chores,
Washing, cooking and vacuuming floors.
Cherubs and kittens, playful and sweet,
But today they're getting
Under her feet!
There's clouds to fluff and harps to shine,
A coffee break?
 Not a chance this time!
Must be ready,
Can't be late,
Oh no, 
Already a queue at the pearly gate!
