A New Phase

When I started this blog back in January 2015, I was looking for a place to be creative, somewhere I could post poetry and short stories as well as assorted other items.

I’ve given it a lot of thought and I’ve tried to be creative in combining Clare & Dean and My Creative Cosmos and in doing so I’ve come up with . . .

I look forward to continuing to share my thoughts and creativity.

You can now find me over at Clare’s Cosmos.

Meeting Her

I’d heard she was a lovely lady, in fact, I’d heard she was absolutely charming.

The opportunity to meet her could not be missed, but the day was cold, bitterly cold.

My ears ached, my nose was numb and my fingers stung inside the woollen gloves I wore.  I’d pulled on enough layers, under my coat I wore a jumper and a shirt, and below that, a thermal vest.  But I hadn’t paid enough attention to the clothing I’d stepped into.  I’d been careless, and together with all feeling below the hem of my coat, my legs had also lost any scrap of my attention.
