Heaven’s scent

Heaven’s scent.

Nature touched my life today
In a special scented way
From elderflower to orchid bright
Air perfumed with sheer delight.

Your presence makes it so divine
When our spirits both entwine
You, your eyes so sparkling bright
Comfort me through each dark night.

You are the roots to which I cling
This Love is such a splendid thing
Truthfully gorgeous, elegance, style
You make my living days worthwhile.

God’s hearth it lies in nature

God’s hearth it lies in nature:

Walk through windswept landscapes
Lose yourself in Forrest’s trees
Listen to sweet serenades
Catch your breath upon a breeze.

Inhale beauty as it’s painted
Upon that palette sent
Simplicity is all we seek
under a canopy of content.

How great to have such freedom
Unraveling our mind
In a world so filled with madness
A web so well designed.

My faithful friend

My faithful friend :

The door stood ajar.
She couldn’t have gone far I thought.
The paw prints in the snow were fresh. I put on my coat, scarf and gloves, stepped out into the air, bracing myself against the sudden cold. Trembling at the thought of my little baby out there lost, alone. I followed the tracks which now were being lost in the mix of the traffic. I walked aimlessly to and fro, left then right. The snow began to fall. Surrounded on all sides by screaming, laughing children making large snowmen, snow angels and partaking in snowball fights unaware of my troubles. The more it snowed, the farther I walked from home the more I realized sadly it was time to head back. Tears began to fall hidden by the falling snow. I arrived back at the house and was greeted by that familiar wagging tail and frenzied yelps of joy. It seems Holly had unlike me seen how cold it was outside and doubled back to the comfort of the fire.

Have you forgotten about me

Have you forgotten about me
I thought you may have lost the key.

The one that always warmed my heart
Our lips would ripple slowly part.

Then you left without a word
Pierced me with that steely sword.

Tightly locked in your embrace
That code of love no longer trace.


Loughglinn my home

A few years ago I retired with family to a village in the West of Ireland.

Loughglinn my home

Luck was with me when I landed
Neighbours gathered open handed
A stranger dropped into their midst
Always willing to assist.

A change of lifestyle that’s for sure
Into an unfamiliar atmosphere
All apprehension soon dispelled
Belief in human nature upheld.

A village leaning to one side
Locals rightly beam with pride
Thankful now where I stand
Better than I ever planned.

The smell of fear

The smell of fear.

I stepped gingerly across the field
The innocence of one well heeled
A country scene to behold
About the bull I wasn’t told.

At first the sound it did not frighten
But then my lungs began to tighten
The ground beneath began to rumble
In equal measure did I run-trip-stumble.

I remember falling once or twice
Slipped on something not so nice
The tail had lifted the tale was told
The scent of nature it did unfold.

Castle oddfolk

Castle oddfolk

They think we’re old-nondescript
Paling into the background-drift
Remember all our pleasures-fears
Rearing children-wiping tears.

Now sitting in this single space
Tablets in a numbered case
Plastic tulips in a vase
Jigsaws now a lockdown craze.

Suddenly we’re all the rage
Feature on the news-front page
Politicians show compassion
Maybe not-but in a fashion.

Breakfast served now on a tray
By a nurse a life’s bouquet
Always smiling full of joy
Empathy within their hearts employ.

Loved ones lost-a shadow cast
Lessons learned from the past
Life will go on this we know
Along this path we all must go.

COP on.

Has this flag of life unfurled
Onto a desert edges curled
Burning now with greed a goal
Concrete buildings-mining coal.

Pinstriped panthers plotting planning
Felling forests flames a fanning
Island homes sinking fast
How long can this madness last.

Use of all our green resources
Steer us onto safer courses
Wind-water-solar power
Help our future blossom-flower.

International bullying day

The cowardly bully.

There are people in the wold today
Who comment in a hurtful way
Smashing someone’s confidence
Shy and bashful – consequence.

Stepping on a person’s smile
Spreading lies obnoxious bile
Evil minded – prey handpicked
Ignoring damage they inflict.

Cowardly bullies can’t abide
Leave no room for them to hide
This world will be a better place
If they disappear without a trace.
