Mrs. Monk's Would-be Diary, should have been written by Mrs. Monk, since she is the "Writer" in the family.
However, since she is a writer only in the conceptual sense, I have undertaken to fill these pages on her behalf.
If not by her, these pages will certainly be about her, and other important matters of the day

Mrs Monk’s Would-Be Diary .........

Salt and Roses

On the Kitchen Table we have Salt and Roses

From our Garden,
An abundant Autumn harvest of sweet red grapes,
That Nature gave up like Darwin said it would,
And in abundance.

But in the fermenting of the nouveau chateau Monk
Nature needed a helping human hand,

To turn the ‘09 fruit t’ wine. we crushed and canned a glass or two of sweet home made grape from our bumper crop,
 a sober juice for breakfast.

And for dinner, a gentle stroll,
as per usual, in pursuit of solace, and Cape Fear, Shiraz, or Cabernet,

Or whatever takes our fancy for less than a fiver.
The cluttered shelves of the corner Co Op, consoles on a daily basis.

On the Kitchen Table, we have Salt and Roses.
