‘Where Are the Pretty Things’ by Phil Yeats

Welcome to the Spot Writers. This month’s theme is “All the pretty things.” This week’s contribution comes from Phil Yeats.

In December 2018, Phil (using his Alan Kemister pen name) published his most recent novel. Tilting at Windmills, the second in the Barrettsport Mysteries series of soft-boiled police detective stories set in an imaginary Nova Scotia coastal community is available on Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/Tilting-Windmills-Barrettsport-Mysteries-Book-ebook/dp/B07L5WR948/. He’s currently working on a saga about the hazards of ignoring climate change.


Where are the Pretty Things?

Some see the bright side, others the dark.

I tend to the latter, with COVID it’s worse.

Crocuses have bloomed, but now they’re done.

Snow has returned, but it won’t stay.

Spring is coming, it’s here everywhere else.

April in Nova Scotia, what more can I say.
