Bad day at the office – short film

27 Feb

A fabulous short about an average guy, doing an average job at an average company.  He’s the object of ridicule, he’s mocked by everyone but by the end of the film he’s the king of the world.

Super Sleuths – short film

Marie goes on a mission with her best friend, Sally Blue, find her missing boyfriend.  The pair are distracted time and time again.  The film’s rather odd but nevertheless worth a watch.

Everyone’s wondering what will happen next.  If it wasn’t so real, it would make for a great story.

I love it how kids neutralised the weapons turning them into climbing frames.

Bee-ing – TB

20 Feb

Will this matter a year from now?
For now I am a honey bee
Hunted by hornets.
They try to murder my dreams
And deliver homilies of their own.
How doth the little busy bee
Continue living from hour to hour?
How long will she be free
To gather honey from every little flower?
Flowers are not as sweet as they once were
And seeds fall on hard ground.

Unending tears – TB

20 Feb

It hit me today…

As a child
I would cry
When it got too much.

I knew if I cried
I’d be lifted
Out of and away from my sadness.

Strong hands accompanied
By soft kind words
And my world was OK again.

Now, in tears, I could drown.
No one would come.
It’s no longer difficult homework or a cut knee.

…this is war.
