.shorter grass.

it has come quietened here
september with children back
in school
tourists gone
roads are easier with those

who know the ways

the rock lorries continue
to the coast

to stop the sea
as if we can

kittens in corners
while i forget your numbers
imagine the cuteness, to touch…….

yesterday we ( he) cut the longer grass
rearranged the sculptures
while i swept leather leaves from under
the rhodedendrons

the day passed pleasantly
messages came from folk
to arrange the next adventures
to include donuts
with jam and sugar
and a need to wash after

as i write the sky lightens
to spite the rain threat

i look out to see
to get ready

three quarter tea left
luke warm
toe better
back better


you were awake so early
yesterday and
i hope that day went well
for you

the day in the city was splendid
around the docks & liverpool

we went up the eye, the big
wheel despite the wind & vertigo

felt the admin in the tate was splendid &
told her so

she comes to stay in garndolbenmaen
on holidays

a firm voice demanding that all body parts
were kept behind the lines & we did so
while others did not

we are safe & i hope you guys are

do you work on sundays
like i do?

warm, cosy
there is a storm outside
the knapweed is going


i have been out looking

for you

amongst the knapweed

amongst the flowers

cut those brambles that may stick

to your prickles

we left it longer

the tidying this year

so as not to be a slave to it

and rewards are endless

good it has become a fashion with the climate


it always did make sense to me

others thought not in the past

we have a a past, it keeps reminding me


.on guard.

how intersting that must be
sitting up

when one awakes

holes in the heart
the mind

we went on a new walk
in hot sun unexpected

i stood to view nannau afar
covered the scar for fear of


for fear of being me

i behaved impeccably
i feel apart from the
photograph incident

is she home?
is the cat still home?

i can walk miles quietly

yesterday the planes flew over low
the mind cleared of the news of him

we carry on

good morning
summer morning
knapweed patch
is flowering well

.note to james.

6.19 am
yesterday after work i got the news
that another had died sudden

there was nothing could be done.

so it goes.

before the news it was a lively day
at mill

two splendid folk especially
that will remain
in memory

i remember their names
i remember their shoe sizes

at home
the news came
and i wearied

the day quietened

so it goes


classic fm
wifi ok

.lux soap flakes.

Ps. forgot to say that I visited the Bala antiques chapel yesterday
and bought an old carboard package for Lux soap flakes
He was there and gave me a cake, then with a little support tried to play an old bugle while a customer played the hunting horn.
It was all very funny, he is very funny,

.the tent.

i may understand
it is family
making memory
the tent idea

this weather

the air the feeling
of being outside

a taste of freedom
with slight discomfort

yesterday i lunched out
and thought of you

your painting

today i paint
in my bala studio
put the collage together
i left it stewing nearly
a week ago

it has been an odd
sturdy time

with repairs and humbling

the recovery engineer came grumpy
to change my wheel so i talked to the recycling
man instead

he deals with electrical goods waste

enjoy the family
i have three cats too
mostly outdoorsy

no sounds next door
his car is there
i can see it if i lean out the window
he is a farmer


They said it was fixed yesterday.

It wasn’t.

Asked me to do checks.

I made excuses so an engineer is coming.

They say.

Yesterday I made pancakes.
