In December we did CJT7 – an easy little bit of writing each week on a theme. I have been reading over them and they seem quite personal, a bit like a dialogue between us, so I thought I might just post a couple to give you blog readers a taster, but keep the rest private…
Here is what we wrote for “something beautiful”:
Something beautiful to me
Most especially the clear and cold starry nights
With crispy glittering frost underfoot
And a coldness that makes me feel brightly awake
A pheasant on the lawn:
The gravitas of a peacock
Green and white neck
So plump and regal, with
Strong tail feathers out behind.
Shame, to be reminded of silly hats.
