Moon: Not her again! She bought that camera to take close ups of me and she is so bad she has never taken a good one yet, even when I smile!
House: Yikes! She caught me. What-ever do I look like? Stay very still behind me Moon, perhaps she will go away in a while.
Silence for a moment
Moon: Has she gone?
Her by the gate: How does this blooming thing work? I can’t see a thing!
Followed by hurried footsteps and a door shutting then silence at least from out here
House: She’s gone! You can come out now moon! Perhaps she’ll give up and we’ll never see her again!

A very bad rhyme (it sort of rhymes!) for a very bad photo
At the Washing line
Looks like a nice day
Gill McGrath diary today
No car, so had to use the bus today.
Was able to stare at the yellow fields across the way…..
And as I sat
I promised me to walk there on another sunny day.
Then I looked up and
Saw the sky, specially blue and clear and
Tiny little air planes were busy painting there..
I watched a line become a kiss; an X against the blue !
So with promises of more shapes to come I……
Fiddled for my camera
But it wasn’t there!
So I missed the shot of an upside down V turning into an A!

been a long day
so near home
At the gate
Suddenly saw the side show
When the tree glowed
Bathed in light of
The setting sun behind me.
Nearly missed it
The Main show behind me
Just rolled on and on……
Loved the side show.
Sky Show now open at the Top of the Hill.
Standing room only
Playing most days
Rolling, endless and free,
Just turn up
Its Worth the Walk.

The way to carry money……….
Here I am. I have just got back from shopping. I am sitting on the sofa looking at my stuff filled carrier bag. I am in a bit of a fizz, again. The bits I bought are safely in the bottom for sure, but I can only hope the paper money accrued on route ,thrown carelessly in, during frantic purchasing, is still there. I now realize once again that the couple of screwed empty ready salted crisp bags, I also acquired along the way, have unfolded themselves and and are now floating around in the carrier, big time; and they may have pushed out any of the floating money in a flick during my various movements along route! So now I begin my ‘after shopping mantra’ a sort of prayer, about loose paper money which always float at some stage in the carrier bag I will be carrying, quite forgotten, during the various uncomfortable stages of travelling, that is until I get home………
It is good to carry money
In crumpled wads
In paper bags
….repeated three times during the process of emptying carrier bag.
And so my God gradually answers……..in gentle tones:
‘The best way I like to carry money, actually, is messily.
A paper bag is good’*
[*Words by Andy Warhol are from the Philosophy of Andy Warhol 1975]
Feeling better already. Never actually lost anything in a carrier bag. As far as I know.Gill McGrath©
A minute to seven
I glimpsed Heaven
Gill McGrath. Diary. today
(Day 10 napowrimo 2014)
It will roll and roll
across these hills
until the end of time.
Also showing near you.
……it’s the place for a rainbow.
Here is pink before green.
Got the yellow and orange
In the sun
And the moon
