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.

Every day I walk along the river and am saddened by the sights I see.
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.

An evening spent in Howth a fishing village 10 minutes drive from Dublin’s city centre. Watched the sun go down.
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.
A quiet afternoon by the river today. The rain’s not far away and the bees were making the best of the warm weather
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.
