Friday 3rd July


Always just under the surface

Beneath the thinnest of ice

Waiting, waiting for a crack

Shattering paradise


Silently bubbling away

Like magma finding a crevice

Waiting, waiting for a fissure

With such a feeling of menace


Locked in the darkened recesses

There, but bravely hidden

Waiting, waiting to pounce

Grief arrives, unbidden


Thinking of you

Beloved Angel son


That’s all we can ask


Tuesday 30th June


Misty and murky

With a touch of fog

Quiet at the moment

Some out with their dog

Walking empty streets

Lifeguards on the beach

Not many tourists

Stay safe, all beseech

Two metres apart

Perhaps wear a mask

Be responsible

That’s all we can ask


Thinking of you my sweetie

Treasured Angel son


An overgrown putting green

A very quiet Porthmeor Beach

Wildflowers growing on the cliff

High tide

Lifeguards with no customers to look after

Harbour slipway

A small yacht at anchor

All the self drive boats ready for tourists

Just checking in


Monday 29th June


Just checking in sweetheart

Letting you know I care

Sharing my day with you

Taking you everywhere


Driving around Feock

The Gardens at Trelissick

To the King Harry Ferry

Moving slowly, not quick


Meandering roads and lanes

You’d be asleep in the back

Happy when we arrived

Time for a drink and snack


Sending you lots of kisses

And so much love too

Dearest, darling Angel son

Miss you so much, I do



A bright day for a drive

Windy roads

Trees in full leaf

Towering above

On the way to Trelissick Gardens

19th Century converted water tower that’s now a Rapunzel-esque holiday cottage.

The road down to the ferry

Wind farm turbines above the hedgerows
