Jane Dougherty has come up with a theme for May . It is 42, now Jane describes it thus: “42 after Douglas Adams’ answer to the question of life, the universe and everything. The form is like the Cherita in its structure with a bit of added interest. The first line/stanza asks a question or makes a statement that begs a question, the second stanza/two lines sets the scene or the background, the last stanza/three lines answers the question or resolves it in some way.
Why does the sea answer to the tides.
It’s like a glass door that glides
Answers are there linked to the moon.
We can see the stars too soon
I am so relaxed I feel I shall swoon
It’s all linked to the moon.
