I’m sorry I’ve been quiet

but things got in my way.

I’ll try and write tomorrow,

if not, the following day.


I’ve been dashing here there and everywhere, doing this that and the other, you’ve no idea.


I’ve had so many things to do,

cook and shop and wash my clothes.

Where on earth the time goes,

heaven only knows.


My vacuum cleaner had the nerve to huff and puff when I plugged in just now. Lazy machine.


Even Rosey had a moan,

d’ya know what she said?

‘You’ve stopped writing Keefy boy

I thought you’d dropped down dead!’


Sarcastic or what? I know I ‘m usually on my blog daily, but there was no need for that. Where was I?  Oh yes….


‘Rosey’ I said

‘You’re a fine one to speak.

You ain’t blogged a single word 

for weeks and weeks and weeks’


If you are familiar with her blog you’ll know that’s a blessing, but don’t tell I said so!


I know my muse is getting bored,

she wants me scribing soon.

To try to keep her happy

I’ll write tomorrow afternoon.


…and I promise it won’t be poetry!

    “Tis the season for rushing about. Wait…now that I think of it, isn’t every season a rushabout?
    And Rosey blogs? Do tell! By your accounts she’s so interesting, I can hardly wait to read her posts. 😉

      My first thought was – be careful what you wish for, then I thought maybe I should get Rosey writing again. Actually it’s been almost ten years since she last blogged but it’s still there and it has a brand new post ready and waiting!

    Keith, I sympathize with the busy-ness. I enjoyed your prosy poetry 🙂 Maybe after New Year’s day, we’ll settle back into more of a “normal”—whatever that means—-routine.

    Write poetry if you want, i won’t fuss.

    There are busy seasons and there are times when overwhelm is the word of the day. Be kind to yourself and post when you can and when you want to, i mean really, really want to.
