Tornado and the weekend
Posted by Joanne Hayle
Here we are at another weekend, another cold one here in the UK and I’m yearning for Spring, I love to see nature coming back to life and to feel the sun getting warmer.
It’s a hibernating weekend for me, reading fab books by the fireside and indulging in some edible treats.
I won’t be wearing a snowman onesie though, that would be a step too far!
I’ve spent most of today placing my recent books on to online retailers. I can only hope that the right cover has been uploaded with the correct text each time. Fingers crossed or I may get an e-mail asking why my Charles Dickens book only contains information on Tolstoy. Uh oh:-)
I’ve also taken a piece of flash fiction and turned it into a poem. It’s not based on reality, thankfully, although someone who read it did suggest an appropriate place to stick the door handle if it was real – Cheeky!
I hope you enjoy it.
In my head structures torn down, a tornado
Monoliths had been embedded moments ago
He’s not dedicated to us, a lost cause, no hope found
Twenty odd years of history razed to the ground
With his cologne filled air of self satisfied finality
I’m stunned, powerless, cut down cruelly
He tells me that I can rebuild my new life with zeal
Find love with someone who has more appeal
I try to believe that I’ll be better without him
As he insists it will be so I try to submit to his whim
He opens the door and goes without looking back
My name isn’t etched on his heart, it’s on the rack
He worships and loves her, Helen.
I’m the discarded ruin, Katherine.
Have a great weekend.
