RDP Wednesday: Daffy

img_5155

Three little daffodils
Sitting in a row
So please take our photo
We are looking very beau
We might not be the best
But definitely the first
And now give us water
Before we die of thirst
“What about me” said a fourth one
“I might be small, but am growing”
“We believe you little Daffy,
So now you can stop your crowing.”

RDP Wednesday: Daffy

RDP Wednesday: Frigid

Below in the cellar there is a fridge
It makes everything cold and rigid
It works quite well,  I have a problem
The ice is making it frigid
Had a look today, the bread must go
It is feeling very much lost
Time has come for a switch off
The fridge I must defrost
And so I take a pick and axe
Perhaps some fire and matches
The ice will melt and so will the fridge
But the bread will defrost – in patches.

RDP Wednesday: Frigid

RDP Wednesday: Christmas

Christmas Day in my little corner of my little Switzerland and yes, the sun is shining, so it must be Christmas after all. A week of rainy mornings, but the afternoon always brightens up for a couple of hours, before the sun sinks.

So what does Christmas mean to me? Well let us cut out the buying stress, the cooking of the food and as an extra this morning, putting new linen on the beds. I also got more happy Christmas wishes on Facebook than I have ever seen. I think everyone found a picture to post using their Happy Christmas greetings, all with the more or less same Facebook frame and colour. Today is Christmas Day which probably means tomorrow I will be bombarded with family groups beneath the Christmas Tree who I do not know personally and, of course, again wishing a Happy Christmas.

Now don’t get me wrong. Of course I love receiving these sincere Christmas wishes, although in Facebook they are just names I recognise from perhaps an earlier participation in a World Cafe, Yoville, or Farming game. They still happen to be in my collection of “friends” in Facebook. WordPress is something different. Over the years I have got to know many people, their online lives and their interests and I know them all.

Anyhow Christmas has now ran its race again for this year. Although, just a minute. What did I see (on Facebook again). Boris Johnson, the British Prime Minister, has sent me  “Happy Christmas” message on my Facebook page. I read it out to Mr. Swiss, but he was not impressed. I think he might even have been a bit jealous getting such a personal message from the blond bombshell of the British Government. To be quite honest I am one of his followers in Facebook. You never know whether it will be useful or not. I even watched his Christmas message online after my midday sleep. He even told me not to have arguments with my in-laws. I no longer have any in-laws Boris, they are long gone.

So have a happy one as long as it lasts, and it will be back with certainty next year again – time to begin to compose your next year’s Christmas present list, and even think about what to cook over the season’s holidays. Some of the decorations are still hanging around.

RDP Wednesday: Enchanted

moon-03.12-1

No matter how it shines
No matter what the size
The moon is an enchantment
It dominates the skies
Shedding a silvery glow
Not hanging on a thread
Suspended in the night
a nocturnal figurehead
But did you ever think
What could happen if it would fall
Would it make a noise
Would it bounce just like a ball.
Perhaps it might just crumble
Spreading silvery light
The problem would be quite clear
No-one survives to remember the satellite
