Missing Mum today

The hay bales are in the fields again,
Some wrapped in black, some are bare,
I remember your fascination
When the doughnut machine held your stare.
Like a young child, with hands behind
Your back you stood at the window,
Watching the harvesting that sunny day
Your pleasure grew and grew.
Never having seen it before,
This memory lingers still,
You and the wonderful doughnut machine
Reminds me, and always will.


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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.

  1. When I feed the garden birds it always reminds me of my mum. She had the best fed birds in the area. If she left the back door open some would come in and find her.
