Join the Dots

1. “Daddy, what’s all those dots swimming in the water?"

2. Ah, they are the final lost notes of

4. The dots of the line where I signed things away.

3. The blink before the bump.

7. A black cat curling up for its final nap.

5. The full stop after the final word.

6. The hungry mouth of a never-ending tunnel.

8. The first spot of rain before a wet weekend.

9. The sad eyes of a melting snowman.

12. “But Daddy, don’t they turn into baby froglets, and isn’t that a happy thing?"

Err, yes love, they do

and it is.

10. A black star

11. The pips on the radio that mark the longest hour of the day.
