(A flight of fanciful imagination or what a single word can do)
This is quite possibly the silliest poem I have ever written, but I love it! It came to me this morning as a result of a silly word I invented whilst conversing, as usual, with a close bunch of Twitter friends. The word was ‘morvening’; simply a convenient way to greet someone in the morning of North America and the evening of Australia at the same time! This pays deference to the geography of that particular group of friends. Following a tweet from @fumanchucat (Poet, Jacquie Dick) with the suggestion that it was “sweetly medieval”, my imagination then seemed to take flight. Thanks Jacquie and the rest of you for putting up with my eccentric silliness.
It is always worthwhile taking an opportunity to say thank you to those particular friends, with whom I have been ‘close’ for at least three quarters of a year. #GRPG, you know who you are and I owe a lot to you all, because of these sometimes silly, but always funny exchanges we continually share on Twitter in less than 140 characters (and elsewhere). I owe you a lot, because I have learned a lot from each and every one of you; I take my hat off to you all. What has happened up to now has added value to my life. Whatever happens from here on I consider a bonus. But, having said that, I fully intend for that bonus to be attained…
I hope you enjoy reading the poem
