Silly Poem – Winter’s Approach

October cold nips at thighs and calves.

I wrap them, tuck them in, try to be at one with the shape of my chair.

It’s a swivel chair.

Once shaped, will I be able to twist, turn and spin into takeoff?

And, once airborne, will I be able to land?

Or, will that be me

gone –

stolen by angry winter?

Caution: Make sure that your torso is safely anchored to your desk by one hand, before you attempt to take a photo of your feet and chair wheels with you other hand holding the Nokia 5, otherwise you really will be gone … Either that or do the sensible thing and hire a professional photographer!

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.

All writing commissions (and free holidays in Shropshire!) considered.
