Ming the Merciless adjusted her new red felt landskin scarf
found along with velvet offerings in red and brown
and also several in chiffon silk
at Aspects Gallery, Kings Park, Perth

"are you sure about this?" she mused
and then ducked off

to mend her spectacles
using the trusty guide from the Reader's Digest of 1970something

all of which translates as a gibbering sigh of relief
my mother has again eluded the undertaker
i've finally delivered an order for the West [see first image]
i've nearly finished that manuscript

and just for the record, the tag with the question
came from a tea-bag


  1. That is wonderful news India! And a delightful way to let us know.

  2. That is good news indeed. I love love love the top photo in particular.

  11. I am so happy to hear that your mom is doing better and that you are making progress with your orders and the manuscript. I know how stressful deadlines can be, especially when you have other things weighing on your mind. I got a spot at the first workshop at Shakerag, Very exciting. I look forward to meeting you, but hope you can travel without too many worries...
