wind whipping

Rain pouring

cold creeping in

Drenched coat

soggy hat

puddles in my boots

stinging face

dripping nose

not a pretty sight

home at last

warm inside

Kettles on

I’ll watch the weather

from the inside


Rain Drops to feel alive

Softly failing rain gently touching the leaves above me
The newness is so much greener today
From french lime green, to apple to emerald
Each green looking shiney and new
The patter of raindrops are gentle and quiet
Landing on my face, making me feel refreshed
The canopy of trees is over my head
They catch the drops as they intensify
Heavy droplets fall faster, harder and louder
They slip from the leaves and land on my neck
Cool wetness slips down my coat
I shudder and smile, I feel alive


Bunny Ears

Today my post is about my nieces latest problem. She is six.


The problem is what shall I wear

What goes with my bunny ears

Sofia says it should be purple or pink

Doesn’t she know my favourite colour is white


I wore my ears to school,

My teacher let me wear them all day

Sofia wanted to wear them, however they are mine

So I said maybe another day.


Mummy said I couldn’t wear them swimming

She thought they would get very wet.

Doesn’t she know that bunnies can swim

I think they would make me go faster,


I wore them in bed last night

They don’t stay on very well

They wriggled around and tickled my nose

I didn’t mind, they didn’t wake me up


I going to wear my white leggings

And my stripy jumper and socks

My favourite boot sand my pink coat

And my bunny ears with no hat.
