Tag Tuesday Challenge - Poetry and Prose

I knew exactly which poem I wanted to use for this week's challenge. If you have ever taken a closer look at my blog, then you will have seen it on my sidebar. It is by Mervyn Peake and goes as follows -

And I thought you beside me
How rare and how desperate
And your eyes were wet
And your face as still
As the body of a leveret
On a tranced hill
But my thought belied me
And you were not there
But only the trees that shook
Only a storm that broke
Through the dark air

I only used a couple of images on this tag, based on words from the poem, the leveret and trees. I didn't want to take the focus away from the poem.


I really want to say a big thank you to all of my wonderful followers out there, who are still with me despite my somewhat erratic and not exactly exciting blogging of late. THANK YOU! A big welcome hug to those lovely people who are new to my blog and who have left me such sweet comments and emails. And a really HUGE thank you to that core of wonderful people who regularly take time to leave a beautiful comment.

I'll be putting together a little giveaway over the next few days to say thank you in proper blogland style, lol. Details to follow.

Until then, toodlepip xxx
