Just a thought

Just a thought

It is said that life is what you make it
Sometimes we put on our happy face
To just go out and fake it
I wonder why this has to be
For it’s not always what you see
Within the minds of those around
There just may be a hidden sound
eating at their dignity.
Searching for a friendly touch
A close embrace not so much
But someone they can turn to
Release the valve undo the screw
Who knows today it may be you
That will be by their side.

A bank holiday rant

It was just a little fun

Will they ever listen
Who travel far and wide
Those doubting unbelievers
March around with pride.

Openly flaunting rules
With no concern for others
Selfish in their civil right
To play the rest like fools.

Who think they are invincible
Standing on a principle.
Free to do what they like
Without any consequence.

Contented in the knowledge
That they pay their taxes.
Rich enough to travel
Before quarantine relaxes.

See them laughing openly
At this viral pestilence
A sacrifice for others
To them it makes no sense.

Knocking on the nurse’s door
They should be number one
As if they were so special
It was just a little fun.

Me my pillow and Netflix

Me my pillow and Netflix

Woke one day couldn’t see my toes should have been beneath my nose
But as I looked into the mirror
It just became a little clearer.

When I say a little – I mean a lot
For my belly – has just gone to pot
Did it just happen overnight
Or could it be my appetite.

For lockdown has me driven to
Bottled wine – Vindaloo
After which it’s to the couch
So much for my rotund pouch.

I know – I’ll do some exercise
Stretch out biceps, buttocks, thighs
Train to run a marathon
My mind just rambles on and on.

Until it comes to a sudden stop
Once again to the couch I hop
Beer, popcorn, pick-a-mix
Me my pillow and Netflix.

Forever I’ll remember

Forever I’ll remember.

Sorrow like a ripple burns
Into a broken heart
Years spent together
Forever torn apart.

Times we spent in company
That smiling face I still see
Stories that were never told
For now your lips are sealed.

Memories will never fade
A touch so warm and tender
Embrace me now in heartache
Forever I’ll remember.

You’re beautiful today

( sometimes hard to do )

You’re beautiful today

It’s ok to love yourself
To be a little kind
It’s important to be happy
Have some peace of mind.

Make a space for little things
That will make you smile
Relax just put your feet up
It will be worthwhile.

For everyone is different
In a special way
Look into a mirror
You’re beautiful today.

The artistry of nature

The artistry of nature

How I wish to view this day
In a watercolour way
Pastel shades vermilion
Dab brightly on my brain.

Lines upon a rainbow
Searching out that crock of gold
Buds of white tipped snowdrops
Signs of Spring I’m told.

Squinting eyes now shielded
From golden sunlight rays
Reflected now in raindrops
That on a river plays.

Entwining honeysuckle
A joy for all to see
The artistry of nature
A cultural tapestry.

With an ounce of their love potion

With an ounce of their love potion

Our father was a quiet man
Simple words well spoken
Made it seem so easy
In a loving caring way.

A pipe as his companion
Satisfied, contented
Practiced peaceful mindfulness
Before it was invented.

His principles imprinted
As are those of our mother
A legacy of love remains
In the eyes of one another.

We’re lucky to have met them
Reared with such devotion
I hope we have inherited
An ounce of their love potion.
