1. “Daddy, what’s all those dots swimming in the water?"
2. Ah, they are the final lost notes of
an unwritten symphony.
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.
