I was publishing another poem when I thought I may have neglected those who like to hear and read prose from time to time. As I sit here Down Under, on Australia Day, my thoughts go to Theresa May, who may think she hasn't a friend in the world.

Butterfly in shimmering light, Garden blooming in new season. Kookaburra, sitting, soulful - Poignant is the far horizon. Orchid flowers, life awakens, The day grows ever longer. Shadows present, Sunshine alightens, Prodigious is her effort, action. Human in kind, Love we find In simple, pleasant things. Far horizon, ever closer, Droplets they descend. Life, we wish … Continue reading far horizon
