The Girl of My Dreams

I first saw Gillian in my dreams. I didn’t know her name then of course. She was just a figure I saw in the background of some occasional dreams. I had already half-forgotten her before I noticed her – if that makes sense. I slowly became aware of her in the background of my dreams.Continue reading “The Girl of My Dreams”

The Power of Numbers

Think of a number…. No, not that one… how could you? We all know the sort of mind that thinks of a number like that… don’t we? Of course, it is all well and good thinking of that particular number when you are young, and… shall we say… a bit frisky. But when you getContinue reading “The Power of Numbers”

The Predicament

It is not always obvious. If it were, she’d no doubt complain that it was in the way all the time, blocking her view of the TV or dangling in her breakfast porridge, or something like that. Luckily though, most of the time it is unobtrusive, going about its own life in its own way.Continue reading “The Predicament”

Goat, Yogurt and Mildred Time

Why is there a goat? Oh, and Mildred, of course. It just so happens that there is a large tub of natural yogurt on the shelf too. You know what that means? YES! It is Goat, Yogurt and Mildred Time! A couple of years ago, it was getting obvious even to the TV programme planners,Continue reading “Goat, Yogurt and Mildred Time”

Who Am I?

I stared at it. It wasn’t mine. I know hands do look very similar to each other. But this one wasn’t mine. Nor was my left hand when I looked at that. After all, I am thirty-seven. By now, I should know what my own hands look like. These weren’t them… either of them. ThereContinue reading “Who Am I?”

It Was a Dream that Held Us Close in Our Falling

It was a dream that held us close in our falling. Shandra’s silent scream lost in the churning as we fell over and over, around and around, clutching each other close as we fell through the nothingness. We had dreamt together a few times before. The Dream Masters had – they said – chosen usContinue reading “It Was a Dream that Held Us Close in Our Falling”

Back Then

Back then, it was all rather different. Balik had been young, back then, of course. Back then, he didn’t have the aches and the pains. Back then, he didn’t find himself waking up suddenly, wondering where he was and where everyone had gone. Most of them were dead now, of course. A few had goneContinue reading “Back Then”

When Every Day is One of Those Days

It was one of those days. He could tell. He’d had many of those days. He’d had a lifetime of those days. Sometimes Sam wondered what he’d done to deserve this life, but on the whole he tried not to think about it. Doreen was asleep, a sort of occasional half-snore emanating from her sideContinue reading “When Every Day is One of Those Days”

But Then Again

But then again, you have to stop and ask yourself the important question… then you decide you can’t be arsed and carry on anyway. After all, you are here in the kitchen, holding a spoon. There must be some reason for it. You came into the kitchen full of purpose, decisive and ready for action,Continue reading “But Then Again”

Turning This Grey World Green

Turning This Grey World Green The snow clouds down on us, a falling sky Now lost beyond itself to leave this home So deep in white. We turn towards what lies Beneath our footsteps trudging deep and slow On through this drifting winter sharp with cold Until the tired days fade away behind The stepsContinue reading “Turning This Grey World Green”
