A Longing for Morning Light, A Quiet Start

It’s very early in the morning, Outside it’s raining lightly, As some morning light peaks through A small opening in the curtains. Hot tea and coffee has been made, And it sits, saucer underneath on the bed, Awaiting its consumer. A book lies open, A story in mid-pause. Whilst a cat, fluffy with brown ears […]

Looking inward, I see Spring

When we were young, children, carefree and in love with the sensation and curiosities of life, when did we tell ourselves that that day would be the last we play with our dolls and wonderworlds? When did we come to decide that dragons weren’t in caves filled with gold, and princesses weren’t held captive awaiting […]

You think, therefore you are

You started out young, I don’t know if you were happy But I do know that you were full of life and curiosity. As a child, your hair was red. Strawberry blonde and long, Such was the time, when hippy culture was popular. Your mother wore flowers in her hair, and vibrant coloured clothes. Maybe […]

Winchester Cathedral: Hand-Drawn Visuals

Last month, I had the opportunity to visit Winchester, England’s first capital many years ago. What had stood out to me the most was the pretty cobbled streets, old shops, and beautiful cathedral grounds. The cathedral had a colourful and fragrant garden where I seen a lovely little medieval cottage full of character, dreamy flowers, […]

A Life of Toast

Toast begins as a slice of bread, plain, white or granary. Put it into the toaster for a few minutes, until it pops up slightly toasted, brown or a bit on the burnt side, either way the deed is done. You then apply the butter, or maybe jam. It’s spread across hastily so that it […]

In the Morning Aflutter

Petals fall away one by one and I am met with the cold kiss of day, harsh on my cheek. My heart beats for change, for the fresh air that blows through open windows, and the comforting, wholesome aroma of sweet cookies, and breads. I draw, and I sketch, and I draw again. These lines […]

Departure, in through the trees and up into the light

Opening small eyes, she looks to her left and rightShaking off dawn dew, small water droplets fly off her feathers‘Mother said today is the day, time to leap, time to fly’Walking bow-legged towards the edge, away from warm leaves and pointy twigsLifting up wings, painted in blues, her chest shone gold in the morning lightFlapping […]

Sudden Rain, a Dream that Lies Within

Love casts its light in a room so pale, and shrouded in shadows, black and blind. Before love made its grand and flamboyant entrance, light that had reflected off joyous life had filtered in through the cracks and opened doorways to that cold and dark room every now and again Making the room less cold, […]

One Candle for One Wish

Twenty-six years ago today I had been born as a fresh, blue-eyed, and hairless baby. I suppose a lot of people had come to see what I had come out like. Was I small and feeble, or larger than assumed? Did I squeal, have a raspy cry, or was I eerily quiet? Did I appear […]

Evening Sets, Enter Night

The smell of seasoned potato masks the air in a tempting aroma, While grey clouds try to push their way through wooden blinds But are halted by the warm glow that emanates from the soft light of the kitchen. Voices from out there in the town echo up into my space, and reminds me that […]
