Wasting time?

It’s been one of those days when I got to the end and thought what have I been doing today?

Clearing out some of those cupboards, boxes – you know the sort of thing, I discovered some old pictures and a bundle of wallpaper swatches the kids had used for projects at school. I’m a bit of a squirrel if I think something might be useful and won’t throw it away.

I’ve been recycling for years – long before it was politically correct but there’s something quite enjoyable about paper, scissors and some glue. A trip back to when I used to help out at school or even into my own childhood when computers were a twinkle in some scientist’s eye. There I’ve almost given my age away! I’d be lying if I said I find all this technology easy but I am learning, that like a lot of things, the more you keep trying, the easier it gets and from out of nowhere came this.

Wallpaper Garden
It was just a wallpaper garden
conceived in an afternoon with
remnants pasted together,
given shape and a place to belong.
With no need for weeding or feeding
the plants can do their own thing,
sending roots deep into memory
till faded by the sun.

About jaytale

My name's Jill but I'm Jack of all trades and master of none. I've been writing, mainly poetry and short pieces for a long time and decided to concentrate a little harder to see if I can master this at least. I paint both the house and pictures when inspiration strikes. I am a country bumpkin who loves to be outdoors and enjoy meeting interesting people.
