50: Croissants in Cornard

Saturday. A definite picnic day. Only five more days left of the day job. Time to prepare for the wind down! I turf out all the junk mail that’s been accumulating in my stylish picnic basket and fill it to the brim with delights. Lots of healthy fruit – a water melon, bananas, tomatoes, etc….

47: Miserable

No, I’m not miserable about the fact that I only have two-and-a-half working weeks left in my job. Get real! In a couple of months, I get my redundancy payment. And, in a couple of years my publications will be on the best-seller lists in Waterstones, WHSmiths, Amazon, Ebay, …………., etc. No, I’m not miserable…

45: Getting There!

So what’s happened in the interim? Where have posts 38 to 44 got to? Well, that’s an easy question to answer – posts 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43 and 44 are still in my ‘unpublished’ folder! At least, their titles or placeholders, are! In short, then with my head stuffed up with the mumbo-jumbo…

37: Lippy

  Saturdays are, of course, fab; it being, for the majority of humans, the day after the workday of Friday. But how long does the reverie last for before imminent Sunday intrudes? And, for how many of us, is Sunday (far from being a day of rest) a day of enthusiastic-I’m-so-ahead-of-myself planning for Monday and…

36: Love Is

What is love, if not that feeling of elation experienced is one heeds the ‘stop’ sign for a moment (or lots of moments) and notices … … notices, the contrasting colours in the land where we stand?   The flowers in our hedgerows: The leaves at our feet: The homes of our little folks: And…

35: Another Work Day

Blah, blah, blah!┬áJay? Be with you in a couple of seconds! Blah, blah, blah! But, but, but! Jay, Jay, Jay! Be with you … But, but, but …. On and on the voices drone and pester. (Just how much longer can I take?) One moment! But, blah, blah, blah! AAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRGHHHHHH! But, Jay? But, but, blah,…

34: Work Day

  I go to work. I feel like One-Strike Filler. I return home and catch up with Love Island. So many One-Strike Fillers using their strikes up on others. I use up my one strike. on myself.   No point in wastage!   Copyright owned by Jay Cool, June 2019   Quotidian: A Savvy Poem…
