At Least I Tried.

He came upon the midnight clear

Settled close to me then whispered in my ear.

There is nothing in this world for you to fear.

Nothing, never more my dear!

So come with me let us escape at once from here.

 

 

He was so black and handsome his feathers oiled and slick

His beak so sharp and shiny, I wondered if he, would me nip?

His beady eyes so sparkled they made my heartbeat flip.

He made me feel alive at last my heart began to tick.

He promised  me earnestly that this was no trick.

 

 

From my vantage point up in the oldest tree

There was no part of the landscape that I could not see.

Come, come enticed he, take heart my girl believe in me.

Be brave he urged ,come take flight you and I shall be free

 

 

If only, my beauty, my sweetest girl you believe in me!

I closed my eyes and spread my arms out wide

I felt his jet black wings brush my face and side.

I stood and stepped forth, he could not, his excitement hide.

I felt the wind take me up, my senses scream as I began to glide

I heard his  laughter as I fell, and on the forest floor died .

 

No one knew, no one cared not one single soul cried.

As for me?…… well at least I had tried.

The Letter

Dear all

I have I have  had to come to make two very hard decisions !

As you may or may not of known I was away for ten days. I did try to read your posts and “Like” and comment  but this was not easy and as it caused trouble with my partner I had to let things slide.

I have taken the decision, though I am not happy to have, to delete the back log of emails I had accrued. I did this  so that I can give you all my best attention now. I have limited time right now to use  the computer  so I have decided to try and catch up with what posts I can from the WordPress Reader.

My second decision is also very harsh and hard for me to do  but I am going to have to say I cannot accept anymore awards from you my fellow bloggers. The thing is my writing causes friction, so it it easier ( and I know most cowardly ) for me to write as when my partner is not here or at least  not to be writing for too long in the evenings or when he is around. I have loved receiving all the awards and have been very grateful and honoured with each one that has arrived in my mail  but they take up so much time and I really want to devote what time I have to my my poetry and prose.

I hope that you will all forgive me for taking these measures  but it is the only way I see to move forward , as my dear friend Wendell  has advised me to do.

Please remember I am so grateful to be part of this WordPress press family and that I love and value you all very much!

With love and hugs to you all
