Muse Entertainment Anagram Poem

We are now in the last month of the inaugural full mistYmuse winter light festival. brightening up the northern hemisphere’s traditionally most difficult months.

mistYmuse Special

Spring seems to have arrived early, with some warmer than average sunny weather the last fortnight, although its forecast to return to normal midweek.

Here’s a little anagrammatic poem-philosophical thought, using the letters I-a-s-s-u-m-e on three lines; something like the 121 reflections in my second poetry collection.

as I muse
I amuses

Leeds UV3 Midday Thrills Me Day!

Sighting the first UV 3 on the Met Office Leeds forecast today, March 22nd, made it a hat-trick of special weather days after mistYmuse (midwinter ideal sunrise times and midwinter until spring equinox) End Eve and Day on the 20th and 21st (the equinox was actually on the 20th this year, as it often is, alternating with the 21st).

When the UV gets up to 4s and 5s for several hours it’s more a warning then, against burning and skin cancer.

Now, for most people, it’s a chance to top up their Vitamin D after the winter, as it needs a certain strength of sunshine to provide vitamin D, and direct sunlight is the best source, although it is provided in smaller doses in some foods.

One of the tips for Vitamin D food sources such as mushrooms, as stated in James Wong’s How To Eat Better, is to leave them in sunlight, on a windowsill or something, so they absorb more from the sun before you eat them, and then you absorb the extra Vitamin D.

Leeds – Liverpool Kirkstall Valley Canal Nature Photos

New Phrases: Light at the End of the Greenygrey

Hi, it’s Susie Dentinfang, word expert at the Greenygrey and Countdown to the Full Moon.

I noticed a new greenygreyism recently. There was an image of a tree-lined road with sunshine breaking through at the end of it. I thought it could be called ‘the light at the end of the greenygrey’, as a nature variation of ‘the light at the end of the tunnel’.

This is the kind of scene it could be used for:

Marc Latham’s latest Folding Mirror poem combines a couple of ideas that could have been separate haikus into a Folding Mirror poem, with a linking middle. Don’t know if it works!
