The Candle

Flickering flamePulsing,Sputtering lifeAnd dancingAlways dancing,Bent by breeze,Reaching upTo cast shadowsOversizedThere and goneAnd back,As flame flaresSpits from waxReceding Shadows fallDwindle,As dance declinesLight retreatsBreath is heldThen releasedWith luminosity renewedSo fragileSo persistentSo,Mesmerising? Will the flameOutlive the candle?

Monday Musing

Pogue, It’s Monday and I’m back. Just for you. Feel the love! I’ve written a few letter and poems in the last few weeks which some have seen as an expression of darker emotions. Darker? Rawer would be a more accurate description. And people have come along and asked: “Was that me?” Well firstly, these … Continue reading Monday Musing

God In The Rain Without An Umbrella

Pirouetting and shimmying God moved through the rainWith a smile and a small laughAnd a sound like delight“I made this, I made thisIt’s was all down to me.It soaks to the skinI’m so full of joy”There’s an experience to be hadFor those who dance in the rainWho realise the blessingGet soaked to the skinForsake their … Continue reading God In The Rain Without An Umbrella

Songs To Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now

Rock on Pogue, Did you sit late into the evening and listening to Glastonbury? I did. Not that Sundays lineup held a lot of interest but Saturday night. Great! And as you know if you were watching, Macca, Paul McCartney headlined. I have to admit to being a little dubious as to whether he could … Continue reading Songs To Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now

Hi Pogue,

They never make demands of you; theyare morally uncomplicated, unlike the incarcerated,addicted, or the chronically poor; they don't resentyour condescension or complain that … Continue reading Hi Pogue,

Songs To Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now.

Morning Pogue, Back in the Day I had a love affair with the music of Joe Jackson. I’m still thinking he wrote some really great songs. But then, fickle as my love is, it moved on to other brighter and shinny things and Joe faded into a collection of memories. Such is life. However music, … Continue reading Songs To Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now.

Monday Musing

Pogue, I have a question to start the week. Question. If people are souls/spirits having a human experience is God at all concerned in their gender, colour, sexual preference? To be frank, I’m not sure God even notices any of these things at a level that would elicit concern. God might be a little irked … Continue reading Monday Musing

Monday Musing

Pogue, Last week was another sad week in the world. Beyond the suffering within Europe which now, no longer warrants the headlines in the media, America was struck by tragedy with school children being gunned down in their classroom. And yet even now the world moves on, and like the war in Ukraine, it will … Continue reading Monday Musing

There it wasn’t!

Pogue, If you think you noticed a Monday Musing and now you’re wondering about your faculties because it’s not there, fear not, it was me not you. Usual issues! Fingers working faster than brain🥺 But fear not. You obviously thought the Musing was exceptional, which, in true humility, I have to admit it was, it’ll … Continue reading There it wasn’t!
