Matinee: Looking at the birds (who watch the sun come up)

2014 04 27 Birds Hermia Lysander  Helena jpg sig

With time to dream
I snapped the birds
Who march in step!
Along the lines, right by my house.

Meet Helena (who flew away)
And Hermia…. who will be biting Lysander soon!

Left to right: Hermia, the loved up Lysander and….. Helena. (Demetrius is off)

Acting Space

I was reading
A Philosophy
By Andy Warhol .…….
Laying on the cushions on my great big sofa
(Which I treat more like a bed).
Not feeling at all lovely
Watching tele
Feeling slummy,
Peeling spuds!
While I read

(Call it multi- tasking!)

And then the master said
It’s glamorous
Living  in one room
With just a bed!
And doing everything there…..

(Call it multi tasking!)

Here’s the actual words he said:
‘Everything is more glamorous when you do it in bed anyway.
Even peeling potatoes’

So with my spuds now ready for the pan
And from……………….my sort of bed
I suddenly felt glamorous
(And ready to act carrots!)  No, no, no!

Today’s Script:

Woman: (scrubbing at kitchen sink)
Visitors are on their way
The place is in a mess
Can’t find any words to say except
Stress, stress, stress!

Will: (calmly enters from left………)
To bed, to bed! There’s knocking at the gate:
Come, come, come,
Come give me your hand.
What’s done cannot be undone……
To bed, to bed, to bed!

Meet the Bird who can prophecy weather!

2014 04 22 the bird who prophecys rain jpg sig

This is the Bird who sits on top of the pole
To hide from the cat
Who climbs up and down trees
In the garden below

This is the cat who tries to sit near the Bird
In this nice sunny place
At the top of the pole because Bird can prophecy weather

This is the Bird who
ONLY sits on the pole
When the sun  makes  a promise to shine.
But Bird is likely to make a very fast move
When the door of Jack’s house
Opens up
Very fast
To a flying bucket of water

Bird calls it a change in the weather
