A Poem About Pet Loss


Pets can be so different,

And their owners too;

Different personalities

That come shining through…


When they’re no longer there

And only memories remain

We look back fondly at their quirks

Wishing to see them again.


Rosie was our pet, our cat

Much joy she brought us too,

I remember when we bought her home

It was so exciting and new…


She fitted in the carrier with another kitten,

Skitting here and there,

She was so funny

Yes we were smitten…


She had a little nook, a box

Where she often lay,

She’d pop her head up out of the top,

She really made our day!


A typical cat, she’d often play

And chase her tail around,

The Queen of funny she really was

A cat or maybe a clown!


When you lose a pet, a void appears

a massive gap is left

Empty bowls and beds, less noise, less ‘them’

Leave you feeling quite bereft


At times like these I remember

All the funny times and more,

Those snuggles on the sofa,

Cat food all over the floor!


Rosie, we will miss you,

But we’re glad your now at rest,

Your cheeky character, exploring nature,

You really were the best!

How to write flash fiction ~ #WonderfulWorldofWriting

How to write flash fiction blog #WonderfulWorldofWriting


One of my favourite blog posts to read as a blogger is flash fiction.  I just love the bite-sized stories and reading the different interpretations of the same photo.

And one of my favourite blog posts to write as a blogger is flash fiction!  I just love seeing a photo and going with the flow.

Sometimes an idea comes immediately.  Sometimes it doesn’t come at all.  It’s not writer’s block (in my ‘book’ anyway), it’s simply meant to be for me.

If it’s too forced, I don’t enjoy it and therefore I don’t get the buzz.  And my readers quite possibly won’t enjoy it either.  I see it as wasted time and energy.

So here’s how I write flash fiction – feel free to give it a whirl yourself!  I see the photo, I get the idea, I’m cookin’ on gas!

I tend to work backwards and start at the end.  Then decide how I get there, which gives me the middle.  Then I find myself at the beginning!

If my notes are quite comprehensive, I find the story is often nearly written.  It’s just a case of expanding a little to make it flow and being clever with ppunctuation(and sentence structure).

But if my notes resemble a skinny skeleton, I expand by setting more of a scene, more description, more emotion.

What I do find with both basic and comprehensive notes is this:

If the idea comes quickly, I enjoy writing by both methods.

And here are some I wrote earlier!…

He had started off with good intentions

and then

Never let it be said that a stone heart holds no emotion


The blood was like…

and then

No one knew when it going to happen

not forgetting

A man took a stroll through a deep, dark wood
