Retrospect – A collection

By Timothy Wynn-Werninck


I am bored of bloody brexit

It’s always on the Telly

In or out shake it all about

it is as if there is no other news

Every crumb, every morsel savoured a newspapers editor’s delight.


Money spent on who knows what?

In the papers reams of trees cut down

Tabloids to put over their points of view

There was Once a Girl

By Caitlin Fowler


There was once a girl who lay be the sea

Begging that Lord would throw her the key.

Helpful disaster from the moment born

Roses are beautiful, no need for the thorn.


There was once a girl who died inside

Living in the world next to the tide.

Regretting her life from the moment woke

A wonderful sorrow pleased all folk.

The Surprise

by Joann Paterson


Wendy had arrived at the cottage. She had left work just two days before as she had started her maternity leave and she was so excited, looking forward to it. She knew she had two months to go until she was due to give birth to her beautiful baby. She didn’t know if it was a boy or a girl as she wanted a nice surprise. She was thinking she was having a boy from just listening to what her family and friends had said to her but she wasn’t really bothered either way, she was just excited.

Colour, shape, texture, smell.

By Timothy Wynn-Werninck

Interweaving, interconnecting strands of Fibre, free flowing, Waving Shades of stuff that remain invisible. There are there and thank God otherwise we would all be in trouble. Discarded out of hand as we do not walk around with Microscopes on our head.

As I sit here in the quiet park I take time out of my busy day to just sit here and enjoy the view and listen to the birds singing as the trees sway gently in the autumn breeze. Time flies and before I know it an hour has gone. I can feel the frost in the air as it nips at my nose and gently at my toes. The sky is of an ice blue with fluffy white clouds, some floating by without a care in the world and some just stuck there looking back at me, probably wondering what I am doing.
