Drifting off

#Dreams #Writeclub

Salford, 30th April 2020

Drifting into a lovely dream

resting on a hundred or more feathers and a few more bouncy springs

in time i’m picking toffee apples off a nearby tree, and

four and twenty cartoon animals are joining me

to have the wonder of all picnics

in time – i’ll be going back to the run-of-the-mill routine

not until the alarm bell

goes off beyond the garden

Wake up call

Salford, 23rd April 2020

#Napowrimo #Nature

No computer required

as up on my window ledge

there are feathered friends residing

until their chicks are fully fledged they’ll be

residing there chirping from morning till night – I

expect to be up early when the sun pops up

A twist on Snakes and ladders

Salford , 30th July 2019

Basic and spinal injury centre, Salford.

We’ve all played the board game of snakes and ladders before

The idea is you roll the dice, go up the ladders and down the snakes

all very straight forward , but has anyone tried playing it the other way round ?

Where you go up the snakes and down the ladders ?

It’s just as fun – and requires a lot of concentration – as you hit a ladder at the top and find yourself going down it instead of up.

We played it both ways – the reverse game is a lot more challenging.
