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
Salford, 23rd April 2020
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

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.
