    Grasshoppers know all the answers Christine….. here’s my poem “Grasshoppers Hallelujah”, which has just been accepted into an Anthology…..

    Grasshoppers Hallelujah
     
    At night, it’s my time to bleed
    As I’m slowly going to seed
    My video picture’s blurred
    I’ll take my film shaken, not stirred
     
    There I was, crawling on dirty paws
    When my dream drifted into pause
    An impostor interrupted my show
    As I was climbing Mount Kosciuszko
    Bathing there in warm winter snow
    Waiting for my spring flowers to grow
     
    I’m overseeing the green valley below
    Where bees and dragonflies are buzzing to and fro
    Tree ferns are shading the moist forest floor
    I see faeries singing from under the Sycamores
    And they’re dancing to music that sounds familiar
    A classic song by the whistling caterpillar
    Accompanied by the violin tunes of grasshoppers
    And I hear the mystical rhythm of nature’s Hallelujah
