THE GEM 18 APRIL 2018 : Tea is quiet and our thirst for tea is never far from our craving for beauty. James Norwood Pratt 

The moon and me

Some nights ago the moon took a cup of tea with me;

I brought two china cups, a teapot in a cosy,

half a pack of McVitie’s,

a heart to brim and a chin to wag,

myself,a blanket with the label coming off,

all the small beauties of an impromptu picnic.

We threw the blanket over my garden wall,

then each cocked a leg over like Egyptian camel-riders do,

swinging our free foot in a childish chord, shy, expressing fellowship.

I shine by another’s light, said the moon.

So do I, said I, being in love.

While that sank in we flipped pebblesinto the nearby pool,

watched them sink in too,their ripples

making the chorus of starlight dissonant

;each of us was reluctant to break the mute surface further,

and we let our voices still as the pool calmed.

Eventually morning hushed even our thoughts,

an apricot sky opening across our line of sight,

and the moon yawned,

let’s do this again tomorrow.

THE GEM 17 APRIL 2018 : Anything may happen when womanhood has ceased to be a protected occupation.”

― Virginia Woolf, A Room of One’s Own

THE GEM 16 APRIL 2018 : “Be brave, little rabbit. Take a chance.”  Cherise Sinclair, Breaking Free 

“One minute I’m just another rabbit and happy about it, next minute whazaam, I’m thinking. That’s a major drawback if you’re looking for happiness as a rabbit, let me tell you. You want grass and sex, not thoughts like ‘What’s it all about, when you get right down to it?’”(Terry Pratchett, Moving Pictures)

THE GEM 14 APRIL 2018 : Morning and evening Maids heard the goblins cry. Only women can hear the goblins. Are the men completely absent in the world of “Goblin Market,” or do the goblins not represent a threat to them?

Julian Baggini quote: “Goblins, hobbits… truly everlasting gobstoppers… God is just one of the things that atheists don’t believe in, it just happens to be the thing that, for historical reasons, gave them their name.” Actually, no. Perhaps we could say that God is just one of many things that naturalists don’t believe in, or something like that, but atheism is defined only by a lack of belief in gods.
