3rd February: Snagged

monochrome image of rose thorns. AI artwork created with Midjourney


I’m like petulant weather,
a martyr to salt-cures for scars and apathy,

And today, I snagged my arm
on a canine-toothed thorn of a rose bush,

Something prolific
rolled off my ownerless tongue, but

When the rain comes,
it’ll wash that secret language out of my head.

For Linda Hill’s JusJoJan “Canine”. It took a while for my head to come up with something for the word “Caine”. AI Digital Art is mine and created using Midjourney’s bot (v4). Image and poem ©Misky 2023 Shared on Twitter #amwriting @midjourney @LindaGHill #JusJoJan

  3. My mister and I find the older we get the more we swear. When the grands go home, we sound like a couple of drunken sailors! 🤬 My son said he let something slip the other day with Colette in the car and it became her favorite word of the day in nursery school. 😂

      1. Swearing can be cathartic 😂


        1. As a kid, I always mixed up the words cathartic and catatonic. LOL!
