School Days( Devotees of Grandfather clocks)

Purple Light

I fight the smell of Purple Light, alone in my room,where I sit and think, of past thoughts , I used to keep trapped in my mind. Sometimes active, sometimes static,whilst I sleep. I must fight the smell of Purple Light Graffiti words on toilet walls, peeling wallpaper in dingy halls, with the dismal imagery. […]

I noticed in an old house in Ruthin, a handsome old Grandfather Clock with a brass face on which the name of the maker William Thompson, Chester and Tempus fugit were engraved. Standing on three small spheres at the top of the case were three eagles with wings expanded This individual who is described as […]

Best there is today

when i first opened my eyes to the world around me it as hard to realise that i hadn’t always been. things seemed to happen relative to me. i was the focus; the fulcrum; the centre about which all things revolved. but gradually, i diminished, i shrunk…grew up to the realisation that i was just […]
