Poem in the Pocket by Grumpytyke, one of my favorite bloggers, whose (incessant) love for my country equals my love for his handsome writings:

“poem in the pocket
among the coins
screwed up tissues
words
and things better forgotten
a poem jostled by the little ones
…”

I “accessorize” with an astounding image which epitomizes (in colour and imagination) this trailblazing community of wordsmiths, Writing on the Wharfe.

“If I am to write anything fine or noble in the future I shall do so only by listening at the doors of your heart.”

Donating = Loving

“Green” by D.H. Lawrence

“The dawn was apple-green,
The sky was green wine held up in the sun,
The moon was a golden petal between.

She opened her eyes, and green
They shone, clear like flowers undone
For the first time, now for the first time seen.”

From Green by D.H. Lawrence, 1914.
