The word “Twinkle” jumps at me and triggers a sweet rhyme to play in my head and I immediately think of the Taylor sisters and their penmanship. Though its “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star ” by Jane Taylor that won’t ever leave our brains , it’s “My mother” by Ann that has carved a niche in my soul.

Home was a quiet place and thoughts didn’t run around much.
All my thoughts, good and bad, all in a giant basket, I walked out.
On my way, out to the big bad world, I dropped a few of them fruits from my basket ,held on to some and walked further..
A few steps down the lane and a few of them bad became rotten. I winced.
Should have thrown them out before. Guilt seeped in . Conscience pricked.
Yet I walked with my basketful of fruits and kept them both ,good and bad.
A few more steps down the lane, the basket was heavy and my hand swept in, grabbed them some, and threw out a few, the good.
Walked down more and then it was late, and I was hungry and I looked in my bag and there lay all of them rotten.
If only I had thrown them out, the bad.
Dressed sloppily with unkempt hair, munching on Doritos with crumbs smeared all over the face, the TV still on, watching obsessive compulsive cleaners, living room a mess, bedroom another, dishes in the sink,…., okay, that is just being a kook.
More to come and more to go,
there are plenty of them that you call a vice.
Hell, they are not nice!
Breakfast,pizza, a slice,
All the pretty white lies,
and all of life’s spice,
brings you to pay a price.
But to abandon one’s vice
is a huge compromise
Once you do and apologise
and on life improvise,
You will find yourself in a much better place, paradise.
