Very clever use of the word.
Thanks, though having burned the rhubarb (carbonised), argued with partner and growled at dog, don’t feel very deserving of the word.
I love this! Image and poem.
Thanks Helen, glad you liked (the image is a hoot isn’t it – and Lightning Ridge is waaay out in the desert – so this was probably only church for many miles).
Oh, YES. “new words required” indeed.
I think we need more than a fix… we need a word for that

Love the image and the poem. Great work, Peter.
