Just an update

Hi everyone, not a lot to show you i am afraid as have been very busy with life and family etc. I just like to pop in and leave a message as i know many of you worry. I am around and ok but had bad news this week as my uncle has died. Its a sad time especially for my dad. I am around though and have just not had a lot of time for anything much online or craft wise. I have lots of ideas just not the opportunity to follow them just yet.
Hope you are all ok and will be back to share soon as i can. In the meantime i thought i might torment you all with a little of my writing hehe

this is a poem i wrote a few years back called 'nobody'

Nobody
(c) J.mac 2006

A cake of resin in a pocket,
four pounds twenty in his tin,
wearing fingerless gloves,
he cradles his fine violin.
Sweet silver notes unheard,
pennies of throw away pity.
On the library step he plays,
in a time-driven selfish city.
Into neon-bright night he plays,
over a receding traffic drone.
His gliding bow softly sounds,
a Haunting, melancholy tone
A cake of resin in his pocket,
five pounds ten in his tin.
He shuffles away to nowhere,
clutching his fine violin.
