Illegal Pink Proliferating (Second version)


Found an electric warmer pad for Nici and the illegal pink
fleeces are proliferating, found the softest pink fleece with
a heart design for her, she loved it and promised not to tell
her dad what a spendthrift I have become, now to clean my
corner in the lounge housing my figurines and crystals, not
to forget the special fairy, then to cover the table with a new
embroidered white cloth my beloved bought under duress
as he found my behaviour while shopping exasperating

I can’t wait to see the effect and in a celebration of the new-
found love for pink I’m wearing pink pyjamas which might
easily be mistaken, with a little bit of imagination, for a track
suit; a rose-coloured glasses perspective makes life seem so
wonderful - the world concurs because the sun has just escaped
the cloud cover and the whole world starts to glow; but it is time
to put the computer away and stop procrastinating, I want
to start cleaning the glass table corner - life is delectable

When simple pleasures like these put me in a Zen trance of
quiet, satisfied tranquillity…

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
