The song man’s tale



Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone
It’s not warm when she’s away…

“Wow ! that was pretty rad ! ” exclaimed the girl

“I didn’t know that you could sing !”

“I always knew I could sing well” sighed Joe as  strummed a few

strings on his guitar ,  wistfully thinking how he could have pursued

his passion than followed what everyone at that time was doing , getting a corporate job…of course! it was at Anita ‘s insistence , that he worked at a job he had no interest in ,   but what good did it do now?!

he asked himself .

He was broke , Anita had left him for some other  and all he had was his little girl and his music.

“Don’t worry pappah ! ” he felt a small hand on his lap as tears were beginning to well up in his eyes.

daddy will give you all the best things ,  he mused hugging her.

Farewell you ebony !



Like the old I must let you go .

So dusty , lost glory , polish gone and so negative

All you do is bring back the memories of that pathetic past,

when I look at you all that which is associated with sadness, melancholy

and loneliness comes to my mind , But why did I keep you for so long

all you did was sit in the dust , I am therefore freeing me of this ebony

that is you …

you are a clutter , a past and I wish to let you go , so now after occupying my space for so

many years I am finally letting you of !

Freeing us both of this misery of stagnation !

You ! I am selling off ! so you can start again and this room can host something beautiful and pleasant !

above were the sentiments expressed by a girl who gave up on learning the piano long ago !

The Humble Croissant !

Sugar , flour

butter and eggs

a little bit of water and some milk !

and you knead and knead and knead some more 

and roll it all with some more butter

till its smooth and glossy ready to be sliced 

into fine tiddly triangles !

then ever so gently you roll them up 

into their well known shape

glazing them up  in egg  !

and off you go  to bake them up

till they come out puffed and scrumptious !
