Prilncess & The Pea by Catherine Reason Macauley  The Princess & The Pea

Once upon a time line there was a most handsome Prince, who wanted to meet a real Princess.  But, how to find a real Princess?  He searched the social hot spots, he searched the internet, he browsed facebook, and found, no one matched his search.
Then, one hot summer evening the weather machine had been programmed and a huge thunderstorm broke the sky.  All the city was disconnected from all that was used to control it.  There was flooding, and there was chaos.  And then, someone knocked at the gates.  The elderly King went to open them.
Before the gate stood a Princess (or so she said), who had been out for a walk to
contemplate all that was and is.  So lost in thought, she was not aware of those familiar but strange clouds.  And so here she was, soaked to the core.  But was she a real Princess?
Though the Queen did a quick Google search, it was hard to know for sure.  With fake profiles and all. 
To find out soon enough, the Queen went to the bedroom and remade the bed.  The Princess would have to stay for the night as the web had crashed and there was major flooding.  One single pea she placed at the centre of the bed base.  Then carefully she placed twenty organic bamboo mattresses layered over the pea.  This was a homegrown pea of course; not one from the plastics of the freezer bags so favourable for the day.  And this was the bed the Princess fell asleep on.
The next day she was asked how she slept.
"Not well at all!!" she sighed.  Forgive me for saying "There was a huge lump in the centre of the bed and "I tossed and turned all night!!"
So it was clear that this must be a real Princess.  Who could feel the pea under the twenty layers of mattresses.  And other would not have noticed.
The Prince and Princess became good friends and went out into the real world to choose a more natural existence.
And would you agree that this is a real fairy tale!!

I wake up in the morning
My sister makes me coffee
There's always sugar at the bottom
Because she doesn't stir it
But I don't really care
Because I can't make it
It's that percolated stuff
We don't buy instant coffee
Because we're too good for that
But I don't really care
Because I don't have money
To buy myself instant coffee  
So I know coffee at its best
When there's sugar at the bottom

The Shorncliffe Pier"

...  and how the old will disappear

So here we have
Ontology, toppled by Biology
Where should we have a wood termite, that taunts and tests the human plight
To have a fishing spot to cast, a line that goes a small time past
A spot to grace a moonlight walk, or simply such a place to talk
Look out toward the far sea lining, where all the time the sun's been rising
We paint and contemplate the pose, from which this construction since arose
To have to "Demoloot" the Pier, to which the locals do hold dear
Bit by bit the wood got eaten, such a cause to hold a meeting

To the Shorncliffe Pier ... to past, and present, and a future time
... they laugh those Termite "Maritime"

    Three of a Kind by Cath Macauley    Catherine Reason Macauley Business Card    "Rouge" by Catherine Reason Macauley    

I knew a girl
Who was so sexy, She sat at home, And she knitted love.
Out of the thin air,
The love was knitted, Cos she so sexy, Such a sexy girl.
And people flocked,
From near and far, To see the girl, Knit all the love.
I used to know her,
When she was younger, She was sexy, Even then.
But the people,
Didn't understand, That she's a talking, Kinda girl as well.
Personality is a factor,
In all people, But the people, Didn't understand.
But she couldn't stop
So she kept on, Knitting the love, Out of thin air.
And sometimes,
She gave the love, To the people, Who stood around her.
But nothing ,
Last forever, And after a while, The love disappeared.
So the people,
 Demanded more, And so the people, Demanded more.
And considering,
That the girl was nice, She gave out, Some more love
But nothing,
 Lasts forever, And after a while, The love disappeared.
Now the people,
 Began to hate her, Cos she so sexy, And she knits love.
So they made plans
For the girl, Who knits love, And is so sexy.
So they locked her,
 In a room, With lots of air, To knit her love.
But after a while,
She realized, That love, Just didn't come from air.
But that it also,
Came from inside her, So she couldn't, Knit love anymore,
And nothing,
Last forever, And after a while, The love disappeared.
So the people,
Began to hate her, Because she wouldn't Knit them some love.
So they killed her, But then they realized, That without her, They had no love.

Lavender by Cath Macauley    

The Fruit
Symbol of Abundance

Walk ye in the garden,
and show me what has seeded,
And know that what is done in love,
is all that's ever needed.
