Lost for words

I’m at a loss for words today,
It’s possible they’ve all run away,
Prompts gave me all I had to say,
My mood is such a dismal grey.
Thick socks and shoes upon my feet
I walk the dog along the street,
Wishing for some summer heat
Thinking what we’ll have to eat.
The sun casts a bashful glow,
Nothing thaws in the hedge shadow,
Snow and ice crunch on pavements below,
Making progress, albeit slow.
Back at home, a warm sight to see
Hubby waiting with a cup of tea,
Biscuits too, for little old me
Not forgetting treats for sweet Maggie.
My mood has lifted, and that’s OK,
A brisk walk often works that way,
Have found a few rhyming words to say,
To put in my final post today.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    This is great. Sometimes the mind works like this poem: just ticks along to its own rhythm. Great 🙂
