Sunday Morning Notes - Poem by Margaret Alice Second

My Sunday Morning Project is to decide what to do
to make the best use of time: first is finding a new hot
water bottle for Nici, after two months coughing non-
stop her computer was moved from the study into her
bedroom, the most delightful room in the house; I could
not convince my beloved to do this before - therefore it is
a victory that he decided to do this all by himself

Now Nici sits on her bed ensconced in a nest of blankets
and pillows, busy with her photoshop project, comfortable
and warm - and I have the cold study to myself, all tidy and
freezing where I created work space by balancing the laptop
on a card-board box - another victory is I managed to decorate
my bedside table; my beloved’s side is austerity itself - a pile of
books, a black and white panda and a single white candle

My side is vibrant with colours, the green of sunlit leaves, the
glow of flowers in yellow, purple and pink; the rustic brown of
the nativity scene; my paper doll &three smaller dolls to keep me
company – my Astrogenetic sign means I can’t master interior de-
corating with classical lines - the more I try, the more eclectic my
corner becomes as symbolical meaning overrides everything, thus
symbolism is so mucn more important than appearance to me!
