Playing around with needle felting multi coloured scraps of fabric this week, and then experimenting with sounds and making up words. In case that sounds a bit too much like fun, the nonsense words came from an exercise in John Fox’s book, “Finding what you didn’t lose” (great book!) So I made up some words and then composed a complete nonsense poem. I did enjoy reading it out loud to no-one!
When I took a break in the garden the plants are doing the same – showing off and fooling around with richly patterned, coloured leaves, and some exotic berries. A dull drab shrub is suddenly showing new techni-colour flower/berries! Does anyone out there know what it is? We don’t!
Whether its playing with nonsense words, or coloured scraps of fabric the joy is in the letting go…. have fun! So here goes with following my own advice and making a complete fool of my self….
Oh opaloid bonbastic bloomery
your ringletty purporange tinklets
flamboozle the leaflike emblendishments.
While the moozy merkoot smidgeons
fill starlicky fractile stasherys
with frondily flicky pinklacery
and limery blockish chillongers.
