 I always find artwork inspiring so here's a little poem inspired by Nicola Slattery's painting.

Let me tell you about my daughter.


Let me tell you about my daughter-

she has her head in the clouds

and dreams of fish that fly

and clouds that can bear the weight of her

and golden dresses strewn with leaves of filigree silver.


My daughter defies the laws of gravity-

she turns my life upside-down

and seeing things from her topside-up perspective,

I begin to wonder -

where have I been all my life?
