My Darker Side

Dear friends, 
I have a small request to ask of you

Although I may have been quiet here
It does not mean that I have 
just been navel gazing

Still an Instagram addict
 I have been taking my pictures

 But I have also been writing 
some new poetry..

You may like them .. 
You may not 

Some you will identify with
 I am sure

Please if you have the time to take a peak, your opinion is always a welcome gift.
It begins in the March archive...

Under the title "My Darker Side.. My Own Poetry Corner"

Just Five Minutes Peace


Do you ever find it difficult to be alone.. ?
Not loneliness, I mean finding time to be alone.

I used to spend a lot of time by myself, I would potter and clean my house, walk the dogs, prepare food along with all the other usual daily activities. 
Obviously I don't go out to work.

Since my husband retired we are together 24 hours a day, plus we have been renovating the property, so somedays we could have had as many as ten builders here.

Alone time, is something of a rarity and something I miss.

This was the time when I would think, meditate about life and which direction I was taking.  I used to take joy in my daily walks, watching the hedgerows and gardens alter with the seasons.  I would think about crazy times in my past, remember old friends, wonder where they are now. Ponder about current friends and their lives, friends often confide in me and in those days, I seemed to have more time to give them.  I do have the occasional day in London, but usually that is to feed my city soul.

Note to self, make time for me
... Just to be

School holiday's are even more full on, I sometimes think that teenagers are more needy than toddlers.  They spend most of their time with their friends online, or gaming.  Yet, when hunger strikes, they meander downstairs like hungry baby birds needing your attention .. and immediately.

I have learned that this is not a great time for "alone time" .. 
I have decided that it is better to embrace this time and enjoy these young fledging's as soon they will be flying solo and go... 

So for now, my alone time must be spent in the bath.

In The Name Of Islam...?

There are no words to quite describe how I feel after looking at this..............

I can only hope that it is not true....
