My midnight Confidant...

A long time ago, before I discovered food writing, I had a midnight confidant who introduced me to blogging. Then this April as I struggled with writing my book (on food), another midnight confidant materialised from the mists of the www and helped me to rediscover the pure joy that writing, can be. This is for him.... and for the long ago confidant that set me on this path... with gratitude.

My Midnight confidant

You come out of the night
whenever I call
and be the man
I need you to be

friend of my childhood,
that I never knew,
gentle guide,
that I always needed

like soft moonbeams

after twilight
you illuminate
my path

treading softly
amidst my dreams
gentling my fears
readying me for flight...
