No birds were there singing this morning,
as the new day around us was dawning.
It’s raining outside,
in their nests they do hide,
snuggled up in their down and just yawning.
Today I am the soft summer rain,
You are my sweet golden sunshine.
Together we’ll build us a rainbow,
to last, a life time.
I heard the birds singing since dawn.
So I rose from my bed with a yawn,
as I stepped out my door
I said “Please sing some more.
Then I’ll join you for drinks on the lawn”.

Young Ebenezer – Confronts the School Bully
First of all Happy Weekend Book Lovers, sorry we have not been around for a while would you believe we are actually writing. It’s true, I kid you not. So during #CampNaNoWriMo we worked on our poetry book ‘Butterflies & Blue Skies ~ Poetry & Prose 2′ but we got off course and picked up on our #Selkie Folklore story.
Today however, we went off on a completely different tangent, but it was very productive. We actually completed the second book in the Young Ebenezer series. This time Young Ebenezer gets to go ‘Trick or Treating’ for the very first time. Sadly Jacob Marley the school bully is out stealing all the candy from the other boys and girls.
With the help of Grandfather Time and Miss Ruby Heart (me of course) we hope to get Jacob to change his ways.
