When death comes for me
I shall be free,
Rigor shall set its pace
When last sparks peter out in grace.

Worn by temporal pain
I left to dance in the rain;
These invisible scars in my soul
Need no farcical console;
These faces that shed crocodile tears
Had once jeered at my fears.

Let the canopies be my eaves
As I lay beneath amber leaves,
That autumn sheds in grief
When summer is stolen by winter-thief.

As the Earth consumes my flesh
I will be freed of the enmesh,
Of living a life of lie
Trying in futile to vie
For a love that was never mine.

In this season of sentiment
These ephemeral elements ancient,
My essence floats in the air;

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.
