How about a little Christmas haiku for your mid-week frenzy?
Smooth, shiny baubles
The red Volvo estate, yes?
We were happy then.
Itchy, ugly brown
Carpets our hallway, a blight.
Courtesy of my dear friend and colleague, Dileep, from Australia, of India/Sri Lankan ancestry, married to a South African, living in America. How's that for a cross-cultural melting pot wrapped up in one purple-clad, red-sneakered individual?!
Among his many talents, Dileep is a fantastic photographer. Take a moment to look at his website for a glimpse of some poetry in photos.
Two other friends are beavering away on their poems, so there may be more before week is out. I have, apparently, created some monsters...
