What?

What did I hear?

What did you say?

So many rumours fly this way..

What someone thought

What myth revealed?

What does this days news report ?

Breaking stories,

The fakes are out

Telling us all in loud shout.

The world is ending

Or soon will fall,

Is there nothing

To do at all?

Step back,

Breathe deeply

Take a break,

Switch off your phone,

Some news IS fake.

Instead you should

Go rest and sleep.

Maybe tomorrow

Sense will seep

Into your mind

Into your dreams

“Hope springs eternal”

It now seems.

Listening to TV..

I can’t watch it,

too much to see.

So many problems,

so much poverty.

Instead I listen,

I’m listening to the fridge,

it crackles and hums,

it’s never been right,

since we got it last spring.

I listen for the kettle,

time for a drink,

a warm cup of coffee,

while I sit and think.

I listen to the weather,

the sound of the wind,

hearing the rain,

on the roof its pounding!

I listen to the cat,

soft purrs hit my ears,

a relaxing sound,

brings peace and stops fears.

Listening to the Radio.

I don’t do this often enough, but it is good to listen while I’m painting, ( not doing it at the moment). I’m just listening to ‘ the unbelievable truth’ a comedy programme on BBC radio four. It is about people telling a story full of lies about a subject while trying to sneak four truths past the other members of the panel. The winner is the one who spots the most truths.

It’s very very funny. You might be able to find it on the BBC Sounds app….
