A summer in Wales

A summer in Wales

Out in the garden

Sitting in the shade

Summer weather has been so hot

Haven`t rained for days


The fields all around us

Are parched, brown and calling out for relief

Good to have a summer

But we ain`t used to this


Summer weather has been so hot

It hasn`t rained for days

You probably wouldn’t believe me

If I told you this is Wales


I never thought I`ll say this

But hope we get some rain

The fields are crying out for it

So they can be green again.

Recent poem of mine

Life in the body of humans

Humans are a mess

Think someone or

Something,. …will save them

But they can’t

They meet some one who

Think they are the one for them,

But they arn`t

Ah,…. that beautiful comfortable

Fuck up mess

Seems` so familiar,

(we know where we are with that)

Then we leave this earth and then where do we go?

That s the question my brother asked 33 years ago,

I wonder where we go?

He left nearly 16 years ago,…

I know he`s fine

Arwen completed

I think I could say Arwen is finished now, I keep touching this up here and there but I dont want to overdo it.

Painting with this walnut oil is a great alternative to using turps,  the painting is almost dry already.  I m defiantly going to continue using it for oil painting.

Ive heard painting with lavender oil is a good method too, so I might try that  sometime as well. Ill let you know how I get on with it if I do decide to try it.

Anyway, here is the finished painting.
