Our passion is writing and we work hard at our craft. Our aim is to encourage, support and help each other to reach new heights in our writing.

 Decorated Christmas tree
Christmas is a surprising time
     When presents appear that are mine
Now I am older, the situation has changed
     Extra kilos are all that I gain.

Walking in the city on a sunny day
     One sees many people in a rush
Business men suited to earn their pay
     Delivery people darting in a hush

None warrant much attention
     But my eyes are darting in all direction
Looking at a young man in a smart shirt
     And then the amazing mini skirt.

All up and down and most are round
     Some are small while others huge

I prefer the golf umbrella
     Though that’s not a sport for this fella

That many are plain is not a worry
     As my Tucan handle sends all in a flurry.
