Tea and bonsai

checked on the bonsai
made tea

walked under the greens
said hello to ducks
read till my arms began to admire the sun too much
put away the book
thought about getting a cat

drank more tea
meandered about love
got lost in my own loneliness
until I remembered I’m a hermit
and solitude is my soul’s wish

relaxed into my teacup
came to the conclusion
that it would be welcome
this love thing
but then
who’d check on the bonsai

or feed the cat

While waiting in line I talk to the trees

Is there anything more serene
than seeing a baby blue sky
resting upon a tree’s new green?

I looked behind me
while waiting in line
and there were the trees
splendid as always
the old bodies
the new welcomes

I replied to their hello
and they drew my soul in
to the sound
of their colours
their many shades of green
kissing the subtle shade of blue

I ask again

Is there anything more serene
than seeing a baby blue sky
resting upon a tree’s new green?

 

Wolves Sheff Utd Playoff Final Help needed.

Not poetry today but a request for help.

I’ve finished my children’s novel and there’s a part where dad and son watch a football match on video tape in 2006. The match was played in 2003 and it was the Playoff Final between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Sheffield Utd.

At the moment dad has videod the match off TV but I want if possible for him to have bought the Video Cassette of the game.

Does anyone know if this match was later available on Video Tape? I Can’t find the answer online so WordPress folk I need your help 🙂

Thanks and stay safe.
