Goddessed into 2019

Reluctant bridge
crawls across from December into
January

failing to tip
me off

as the tips of my fingers reach     out    and   hold                 on

s t r e t c h e d

whole

wholly reluctant

full of holes

and

unretractable.

Not for the first time, I have the feeling of being holy –

goddessed into 2019.

Freelance writer and descendant of the cave dweller and outlaw, Humphrey Kynaston. Banished from Shropshire for my eccentricity, I have made my home in Suffolk. I write poetry, short stories, travel journals, comedy gig reviews and non-fiction articles. My wish is to write my way back into the heart of my birth land. All writing commissions (and free holidays in Shropshire!) considered.
