Enough As I Am

Inspired by the wise words of Meghan, The Duchess of Suffolk: ‘You are enough just as you are.’

The Royal Foot of Jay Cool,
a Salopian, stepping out for a stroll
in her Suffolk residence.

You are enough, said my foot.
You are appreciated for your fine taste
in dressing me up in such beautiful royal colours.
Red and purple; the colours of a Duchess, the colour of our Duchess –
the Duchess of Suffolk.

And it feels good to be thanked by my foot,
to be acknowledged by one below,
by my subject, and to be
the object of such

To be a
of Suffolk
is enough.

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.
