The old familiar room relaxes

the slipper fits

the window lets your light out

to do its wandering


and pretence is unwrapped

and the spaceship sits

and this is home base

everything in place.

Thanks David. I think we should muck about with fairy tales if we're in the bubble. All's fairy and squary in love and war. Xmas like all human constructions can be pretentious I think.

A Spaceman came travelling, Ray.

I really like the "pretence is unwrapped" line.

Christmas, the greatest fairy tale of all eh,

Thanks so much, Paul - a sort of contentment I wanted to express which I felt was needed !

Cheers Col, yes, a lot of muttering in the "cave"....

I must do a follow up, otherwise the esteemed gentlemen will fade away. Maybe he can be in a Jermyn Street setting being pampered next time (obviously in a time machine).

Happy new year to you both.
