My Blog SCRIBBLE AND EDIT reflects my love of creative writing, design, literature and film. Check out my Poems & haiku, Romantic Flash Fiction; Blogfest Entries; Blog Awards and other prose and Flash Fiction. Do bear with me, as I will reciprocate with those genuine commenters on my blog.  BTW I sometimes withhold comments for challenges until later. Comments about the post are much appreciated. Thank you.
Comments based on others' comments can lead to misunderstandings that spread like whispers!

The only SURE way for me to follow you back is if you leave a comment. However, if your Blog has a black background and white writing then it makes my eyes squiffy...

Did You See It?

Wasn't it just brilliant?

Oh I'm sorry I'm getting carried away here, I'm referring to
The Song of Lunch.
Effectively it is a short story written in verse and performed by Alan Rickman and Emma Thompson.You probably wouldn't realise that it was a poem, though the language is brilliantly poetic.

Poetry? I hear you groan!
No really this is simply brilliant.
It is hilarious, poignant and touching.

I dare you not to enjoy it. Go on check out the link:

You can see the dramatisation  of Christopher Reid's narrative poem, telling the story of a book editor who, 15 years after their break-up, meets his former love, in a Soho restaurant, for a nostalgic lunch.
Let me know what you thought when you've watched it via the link.

There's only one word for it

I've put this book on my Christmas list.

Check out Jingle's Pot Luck Poetry on the theme of Beaches and Mountains

However, if you'd rather read some more prose,
check out my
clipboard piece,
though it's quite an emotional, personal piece of writing.
