    Hi Esther, With respect, I’m sending you a couple of examples of my poetry. I love writing;: full stop, but seem to be an eclectic.Some of my poems are ‘little stories’ – hope you approve.
    BREAKING THE SAMENESS
    She knew she shouldn’t be there…
    He – eyes like a Spanish summer sky –
    ravished her with an
    avalanche look
    she would remember for ever.

    The Jacob’s coat he wore,
    pungent aroma of white spirit;
    alien glances of Bohemian friends…
    brushes, assorted,
    laid in an orderly row –
    like hairy soldiers waiting to
    go on duty –
    intruded on the dusting,
    the washing-up,
    the ironing.

    Perhaps those eyes
    would ravish her again
    tonight….
    She smiled and basted the
    lamb.

    FAT LADY FROM CHEAM

    There was a fat lady from Cheam
    who dreamt a ‘chocolate cream’ dream.
    Then, with calories loaded,
    she simply exploded,
    and never again was she seen.

    THIN LADY FROM CHEAM
    There was a thin lady from Cheam
    who wrote much graffiti, obscene…
    She was caught in the act,
    with her tools all intact,
    and was told quite severely, ‘Now clean!’

    I don’t know if you can use them? If you like – by all means do.Thank you! Best wishes.

    Thank you, I’m delighted, and look forward to seeing them on your blog. .Here’s another ‘Quickie’:-
    THE BEST PILL OF ALL
    A course of drugs?
    A placebo, maybe?
    Or just a funny rhyme?
    On consideration and rumination,
    the latter will be just fine

    Joy Lennick

    Cheers!

    I resolved to give up the booze
    But I’ve got the January Blues
    A large G and T
    Cries ‘Drink me, drink me!’
    It’s an offer I can’t refuse
