The above image is from detail from a larger work called 'Poet', a painting by Mike Cooke. I have also used part of this painting as a header for this blog.
fits and starts
The day has started with a fit of weather from the south,
fat rain that the windscreen wipers shovel out of frame,
drops that would be snow if we lived on a mountain. The day is full
of stuck things - Chris's van in the neighbour's shrubbery, the internet
on a page that Safari cannot open. Then a grand un-sticking, to fall
into a patch of sun so thin it cannot hold. I've been told before
I'm grounded. This is good. Unlikely then to get blown away.
