65. Baltic at Balfour Place. (December ’14)

This seemed apt as I’m about to repeat this small part of personal history.

It Started In The Kitchen

Back in December some words came to me as I walked from the Bluebird Cafe to Leith Walk, not all of them all at once, just some of them. I found the rest later on when I was warm and cosy. Those few words that did step up to the pate while on the hoof were enough of a distraction to keep the mind off the cold while I mused on words about….well, the cold.

65. Baltic at Balfour Place. (December ’14)

I’d had my breakfast in the ‘bird,
Been sitting cosy in the window,
Smugly safe from the chills,
At this sconnery in Canonmills,
But once I’d got me scone to go,
Then it was time to get along,
Along the road and then some more
Keeping walking it’s too cold to pause,
Just leaving the park heading up,

About Jim Laing

The Buddha said there were four kinds of people. Those who run from dark to dark, those who run from light to dark, those who run from dark to light and those who run from light to light. From a life going from dark to dark to having a few years running from dark to light, with scuffed hands and knees from sometimes falling, I may be getting the hang of it now. How it began is not now how it is, I need a quiet space, After the noise of the day, So I take sanctuary in the creativity, And my soul feeds, On sometimes dark, Sometimes light fantasy, And I dare like many to work, But stay up off my knees, To dream, perchance to suffer, But always still to dream. Here are things mostly lyrical and poetic, with nonsense sometimes, reviews and personal musings. The coffees hot and always black. The words not necessarily so.
