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
AWESOME!

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.
