Egg on my face

It is a grey day, so far.  The wind blew the dustbins over, during the night and the seagulls are on an early morning scavenge hunt.  Wendell takes great delight in trying to catch them.  The virus warning I received and forwarded yesterday, would appear to have been a hoax.  Better safe than sorry, I guess.  I don’t mind a little egg on my face…I can always lick it off.

So many of my friends are having health problems at present.  My thoughts are with you guys.  Good health is so easy to take for granted.  I know I was shocked, when I discovered I was not the fine figure of health I thought I was.

  Cannot resist sliding one little bit of prose/poetry in.  Pen.

 

Paranoia

I see you through the veil

Of compliment and concern

Your knife gleaming

As it aims for my back

I see you through

The mist of friendship offered

Arms wide as if to embrace

Keeping your venom

Hidden behind silken tongue

Face smiling welcoming and wise

Advice covert arrows darting

I see you

Just to express my feelings … I should try sometimes …I am happy for you that the virus warning was a hoax !!! I watched the news last night and they were saying that milions of PC users did get infected with some kind of bug … and they don’t know yet how strong or dangerous it is. Take good care of you and have a wonderful day. LOVE, Alex xxx
