Greetings to all toads, friends and followers. Before we get to today's Open Link, allow me to apologize for my absence last Monday. I live in a small town in a region which experiences very dry Winters - there has been no rain since the end of April and one of the problems we face is veld fires. Just such a fire flared up last Monday and burnt a major telephone cable, which resulted in my neighborhood being without our service for 6 days, while we waited for it to be repaired. Here is a picture taken a few years ago by my daughter - this is the view from my kitchen door over to the neighbour's house, with a small fire burning on the hill.
So, I have experienced an enforced break from blogging this first week of my vacation, which was very frustrating and I have a lot of catching up to do. It is a new week and another opportunity to share a poem of your choice with everyone in the garden - please enjoy your time spent in the garden, and be sure to visit a few of your fellow poets. Your encouragement and warm comments make the world of online poetry a vibrant and dynamic environment to be a part of. Thank you.
