KEEPING IT SIMPLE. Words and images to document the ordinary, the detail and the minutiae of life.


It rained last night.
Single drops started it.
The gentle 'plink'
of rain on tin roof.

A breeze swept in
through open windows
and rain poured.
The gutters overflowed.

Then thunder
roiled overhead.
Dog, left his bed
and sat beside me.

Nosed his head
under the crook of my arm.
Ears back and a paw
on my leg.

We looked after each other.
