Thursday Thoughts

bud-2297669_1920On this day, this ordinary Thursday, I find myself stuck for inspiration.

My head tells me to write about gripes and grudges –

and all the grizzly gunge that grieves me,

but I feel that such things, in the era of the mindful,

would likely be minded, by those who mind a lot about the ordinary.

Minding about the ordinary is to mind about the voices of the mindful,

and to mind that much is (if you don’t mind me telling you), to my mind,


Somehow, mind, I pick up my gore and take through it to Friday.

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.
