What a fix!

I mixed a bit of Fix-it

to fix a pesky hole.

The Fix-it fixed my fingers

to the Fix-it in the bowl.

So if you mix up Fix-it

I suggest you use a stick:

if you stick your stick to Fix-it,

so what?


A very silly poem for De – WhimsyGizmo – who is hosting at dVerse tonight. See if you can guess what the word is.

Silly again

Let’s get silly
in the kitchen –
let’s be indiscreet –
let’s crank up
that music and
cook up
some hot beats –
let’s knock out
a rhythm
on a baking sheet –
crash some
saucepan cymbals,
bang some spoons
and stamp our feet.

 A more cheerful quadrille for Lillian at dVerse. We’re being silly tonight.


Somehow, I trust you

to unpick the peel

layer from layer – all

the blankets I have wrapped

around myself

all the bright armour

all the skin

that sits between my soul

and the clean cool air. 

Under your patient hands

I will be freed. 

It’s quadrille night at dVerse– 44 words to write a poem. Our inspiration tonight is “peelings” – thank you to Mish for hosting.
