She’ll be here in a jiffy, or maybe half as long as that,

a shake, a second, a twinkling, it’ll be in nothing flat.

My patience in this juncture is growing increasingly thin,

a flash, a crack, an instant, she better be here in a min.

Time is ticking in this moment, the clock is moving on,

I have no time for this waiting, hurry up because I’m done!

imageIt is a cold, wet Saturday afternoon and I am sat at home in my living room, watching the park life from my window.

The floodlights are illuminating the sports area and three boys, or maybe they are men, I can’t tell from this distance, are kicking footballs in the courts.

One is playing alone , challenging himself to kick the ball higher or land a shot in the centre of the goal area. The other two are taking turns at being ‘goalie’ and attempting to score.

Nearby two ladies with a pram are walking through the park and several dogs and their owners are congregating for their daily meet-up.

Now I can hear the sound of a police siren in the distance but this is common where I live, so I am not disturbed.

I think we are playing against Southampton today.

Back in the park, the guy who has been playing by himself is sat down, leaning against the fence. Now he is getting up now and leaving.

I stop typing.

The Butterfly Effect

My own butterfly effect

It was a hot summer evening: the build up of electrical energy in the skies over the preceding few days meant that tonight, whilst it was boiling hot, there was torrential rain and thunder and lightning. It was pitch black outside.

The heat was too much for me. One of the benefits of living alone was that I could spend the evening dressed in no more than my underwear and no one would know! Continue reading “The Butterfly Effect”
