Silly-Serious Poem – Stomach

Churning, whirring, refusing to settle for a new day; convincing itself it’s not that time quite yet. Not ready for things to come. Preferring the solitude of a zone still sleeping.

Silly Poem – Late is Late

Late is late and once late there is nothing to be done about it – nothing that can be undone; there it is    stuck         out there         all on it’s own              LATE.   Copyright owned by The Silly-Savvy Salopian, January 2020   Image…

Silly Poem – Christmas is Murder

‘I hate Christmas – it’s murder!’ she said. ‘If it wasn’t for breakfast, I’d stay in my bed. Why eat a turkey, for lunch and for tea? Why kill this planet, when a lie-in’s for free?’   Copyright owned by The Silly-Savvy Salopian, December 2019 Silly-Savvy Adventure – Chilton’s Ears Savvy Poem – Old Towns…

Silly-Savvy Adventure – Chilton’s Ears

Shrivelled leaves. Shrivelled leaves clinging to tree trunks, looking for all the world like cousins to the chameleons who change the tone and shades of their skin to avoid the beady eyes of predators. Only these Chilton residents are neither leaves or chameleon cousins. Once known as ‘Jews’ Ears’, now more appropriately named Jelly Ears,…

Silly-Savvy Adventure – Pumping the Bellows

Still, I don’t suppose anyone was expecting me – were they? And do I even…

Silly-Savvy Adventure – Chilton Cheer

What to do when the weather affects your mood? It’s dull, cloudy and drizzly, and I’m feeling it. My cliff-top cave has a tendency to be damp and dreary, even on the sunniest of days – it’s windows being North-East facing – so the morning is as dark as dark gets. So what do I…

Savvy Book – The Women at Hitler’s Table

‘The Women at Hitler’s Table’, by Rosella Postorino. Received this beauty of a read for Christmas, courtesy of myself, as the general method of present giving in the Cool household entails going shopping with the purchaser and placing the wanted item in their basket. Perhaps not romantic, but it’s a fool-proof procedure for acquiring the…

Savvy Poem – I See Them

Inspired by Willa Cather’s novel, ‘My Antonia’. I can see them now although I’d rather not. Why then, do I see them and what they are? Now. When really right now I would rather not. See.   Copyright owned by Jay Cool, January 2020   Image by skeeze from Pixabay   Other posts by Jay…
