I would just like to take a moment to thank all the readers and writers for coming to the Rona Gallery readers and writers evening it was great to catch up with people I haven't seen for a while.  A special thanks for the people who took the stand, Mary for being such a delightful hostess and Fiona Kidman herself for her exquisite poetry and her grace.

Alright - Poem 


She fell
Between the cracks

Not one thing,
Nor another

Down the rabbit hole
Past Lala lane

Yes we've all been there
To visit

To take in the view
And refuse to

But this girl stayed
Past dinner time

More curious
Than annoyed

Less curious
Than lost

More and Less
Than you or I

She ignored the very late rabbit
With his watch habit

Not hearing much -
Except the Cheshire cat

Grinning back

Okay explanations.  This is very recent. 12 June. Ecila has a soft c.  That'll do.  Have a wonderful week everybody.


  1. This poem has more to it than meets the eye! A neat, playful poem - a little sad, a little exasperated.. well that's how I read it. But I may be wrong (I often am). :)

  2. Cheers Kay. I did say how right you were, and I meant it, but I'm not sure that there's any wrong way to see a poem. So I very much doubt that you ever are. :)

  3. Thanks you for this short excursion to Dnalrednow. I especially like that final almost-rhyme.

  4. Cheers, again Tim - I think there are some oil executives going there right now.

    So your no oil poem was very timely
