Random Thoughts


Thoughts start to flicker
across a mind that is not
burdened with intent


There is nothing so
delightful or soothing as
soaking in a bath


If you would pre-write
Your own obituary
Speak not of regret

Fickle Fashion

Vampires are passe
In the world’s attention span
all the blood’s run dry


Stupid politics
Tweedledum and tweedledee
think they aren’t the same


I tried to recall
That really important thing
I forgot to say

I tried to repeat
That once in a lifetime line
but it fades away….

    I really liked the Politics 😀

    • Thank you! I can’t claim credit for the key concept though, the idea of politicians being like tweedledum and tweedledee was a popular one in academic books about politics here in Australia in the 1980s or so….still seems true to today though, and probably not just in Australia! But it just happens to fit perfectly into a quasi haiku form and tells so much in so few words that I couldn’t resist using the concept. 🙂

  3. This is interesting! 🙂 And I like the layout, very different! And I’m about to take a nice soothing soak in the bath – funny coincidence!! 😀

    • Thank you! And yes, baths are the best! I actually refuse to live in a house without a bath…just couldn’t cope without having that sanctuary every once in a while! 🙂

      • Oh yes I agree! My landlord wanted to put in a lovely shower for me to give me more space in the bathroom. And I said, Nooooo! I’ve known him a long time – he understands me! New bathroom on the way soon, bath included! 😀
