There she sits, silently - Waiting, always waiting. Watching. She knows, she knows it all. Everything. Her pages are home to thousands of words, Words that were never spoken. Her binding is fragile, Like the secrets she swallows. The dreams she devours. There she sits, silently – Waiting, always waiting. A quiet listener.

Ribbons of roses burst as the cork is released from cherie champagne. Bouquets of blooming blossoms burgeon as mesmerising flashbacks of an English tea party flourish in my mind. Tinges of perfection are smeared all over like a vivid painting of pastel hues. But, it is a paradox. Can’t you see? Under its mask lays an ominous cloud, growing, Drawing me into a haze of intoxicating fumes; drowning me into another world. That gentle touch of sweet toxicity. It is a paradox; The most elegant of them all; It is Cherie, Miss Dior. Justin sent in a picture of his dog, Hardy. He’s one year old and a miniature schnauzer. One day, when Hardy was a puppy, he was running along chasing a bird next to Sydney Harbour. He was concentrating so hard on the bird that when the bird flew off over the water Hardy flew right off the edge of the path after him and straight into the water. He came up for air then started paddling for the harbour bridge in the distance. I called but Hardy kept going, so I had to go in after him. It was a long, sopping wet walk home.
