    This has been brewing for a while, a concept in my head for years, but now distilled in a few days. I’ve taken the prompt and gone a bit sideways with it:

      It would be unlike you to do it any other way 😉 Off to read it now. Are you currently awaiting a connecting flight? I’m hoping my journey home this evening is less eventful than yesterday’s journey here!


      • wbdeejay says:

        I have also written another poem about my current pause in Singapore. Less than 2 hours now, time to leave the poolside writing lounge 😀
        In the balance of things, I believe you should have as smooth a trip home as is possible!


      • PookyH says:

        What time is it in Singapore? I arrived in Scotland so late last night that I couldn’t even get any dinner. Yet it was still light. It made me think of you! Have a safe onward journey and I look forward to reading your next masterpiece x

        It is now 10:30pm which is GMT+7


      • PookyH says:

        I find it so hard to get my head around these things! Glad to hear you are now safely home. Your trip home basically took the entire time it took me to go to Glasgow, lecture, do some work, meet a friend and travel home!


      • wbdeejay says:

        Yes, it’s a long trip indeed. But not having 5 hours break between flights would actually make it less pleasant.
