Hadeda said nix on tricks,
So he built his nest with sticks.
Eggs sway in breeze on misty day
Attentive parents drive cats away
Hatched child (or chick) in home movies features
Won’t sing, but runny tum these creatures —
Find the corn set out today
Sent back down in a gooey spray!
I am con-sultana a lot of writers soon in raisin currant matters of grape importance.
That is to say that during November I will be officially launching four major locally published books by a brilliant selection of overseas authors (plus one of my own), and running five writing workshops at our local library. I will also be participating in a joint launch with another local author, organised by the District Six (not Cape Town’s one) library region in Durban. The publicity laid on by the libraries has started very late (only in the newspapers today) so I hope the local community notices!
Oh yes, I also have to do my President bit on Saturday for Durban and Coast Horticultural Society’s annual Garden of the Year Competition prizegiving. I still need to type out a number of the reports . . .
No wonder my blogging is a bit scarce!
