Daily Post Prompts: Rhyme


A rhyme in time

I racked my brain for hours and hours

To oil grey matter use my powers

Words they jumbled around around

Put together a poem found.

How easy then it seemed to be

Like counting up from one to three

Just take a pen and write it down

Using verb, adjective or noun.

I sat for days with notepad blank

Time went by my heart it sank

Alas it was too high a climb

How hard I tried it wouldn’t rhyme.

Laughter finds its rightful place

Laughter finds its rightful place

A weight has lifted from my mind

A feather to my soul did find

At times it tore my world apart

Struggled so it broke my heart.

Strange how life can turn around

Despair, solutions could be found

Let not depression take control

Find that helping hand to hold.

At last I’m in a quiet place

Love and laughter find a space

Tension troubles disappear

Solitude and peace appear.

Daily prompt: Unfurl


Peaceful moments

Onto golden sands it rolls

Rippling waters sooth my soul

Peaceful moments fill my mind

Such solitude is hard to find.

Out on western windswept shores

Away from daily mundane chores

Inhale the bracing ocean air

Frolic freely without a care.

Open up that priceless pearl

Let Achill’s endless space unfurl

Drift away on open seas

Relax, enjoy just take your ease.


Achill Island off the West coast of Ireland another pearl on the wild Atlantic way.

Climate change

Climate Change

Deforestation climate change
Human madness all deranged
Plastics washed on every shore
Carbon footprints melt ice core.

Balance nature – future goal
Preventive action a major role
Educate the non believers
Save the badgers, bears and beavers.

Governments must work together
To equalise our planets weather
Ignore the signs at your cost
Nature's beauty will be lost.
