Long time no see! Helen was once again the winner in the Flintshire Poetry Competition (it was a different judge, by the way) and had another poem commended; I also had one commended. Mine was:
right over left, left over right
makes a knot both tidy and tight
(common mnemonic for tying a reef knot)
You – captain at tap end,
me on knot duty,
legs: right over left, left over right.
Ends slipped tight, snug
but one tug
could pull us apart.
spill like milk
or silk-shot moonlight.
To keep you in suspense.....Helen's 2 poems will appear in the next blog!
