Weekend Wondering. Shakespeare and Love.

It’s the weekend, 6 Nations rugby, Valentines and a visit to Bristol to find some ideas for our forthcoming kitchen renewal. It’s nice to be nice to your partner, to be romantic. A shame so many people see this as the only time for romance, and the commercialism runs away with it because we spread ourselves so thin. Lets take some time and smile a bit more, say something nice to someone close. I love Shakespeare’s use of words, his ability to make it extraordinary.

Here are a couple of snippets to enjoy.

“All days are nights to see till I see thee,
And nights bright days when dreams do show thee me.” Sonnet 43

“in black ink my love may still shine bright.” Sonnet 65

He has the words that still have impact. As we discovered when we went to Stratford and the RSC recently to watch Loves Labour Lost and Loves Labours Won. His Love poetry and verse is timeless.

The poetry cafe is this week at the Royal Hotel, Weston-super-Mare. I am writing sonnets, as the subject for this month, it’s slow going with work commitments but I am writing at least. Here is a fragment of my own I’m working on.

A Love Song.

A Love song is always
the sound of life with you.

Have a heart this week, be kind and remember, it’s nicer to smile at people.


Go on, tell me something, you know you want to.
