Low clouds gather

Dull damp mist drowns distant hills

Whipping sands – body chills

Sizzling summer Sunday sighs

Graying clouds fill sullen skies:

Plans once made for holidays

Ice cream cones, sandwich trays

Cases packed, suntan lotion

Parasols set by the ocean.

Irish dreams so often shattered

Into the car emotions battered

Tune into the radio

The weatherman has forecast snow.

Cast upon a Christian shore

Living on the margins – existing

Dreaming of a better life – persisting

Reaching out for freedom – groping

Adrift on open waters – hoping.

Washed upon a foreign shore – confused

Dazed, dizzy, destitute – bemused

Children’s pleading tearful eyes – implore

Politicians, pinstriped suits – ignore.

Familiar now upon our plasma screens

Are we so immune to sights obscene

maybe we could do a little more

For all those cast upon a Christian shore.

Agoraphobia

Locked inside that puzzled brain

Feeling on the verge – insane

Fearful of the world outside

Confusion reigns nowhere to hide.

Imagination locked in cycles

Swirling – ever decreasing circles

Walls cave in begin to crush

Reaching out no hand to touch.

Creaking, on the verge of tears

Surrounded by those inner fears

There is no future in the night

Just one step a glimpse of light.

For I have found a sweetheart;

( sometimes we forget how lucky
we are )

A smile to brighten up my day
A kiss to send me on my way
A tenderness so full of charm
An open heart – can do no harm.
Someone on whom I can depend
A lover but what’s more a friend
For years I lived a single life
I’m proud that you became my wife 💋.

Love is stirring everywhere:

Listen to the wind as it whispers through the trees
A Zephyr from the Gods putting you at ease.
Open up your soul to nature’s sounds serene
A gift so full of treasure to welcome whilst unseen.
Maybe that’s our problem we search for earthly pleasure
While all this time it’s been there
Something we cannot touch or measure.
Take time if just a moment – sense the calmness in the air
Hear birdsong in the distance
Love is stirring everywhere.

Ease that tension deep inside.

We all seek freedom in our lives
Peace of mind for this we strive.
From the day that we were born
People prodding like a thorn.

Too often tend to complicate
Work ourselves into a state.
Take time out to contemplate
Clear your mind, concentrate.

Ease those doubts within your brain
Think of rainbows in the rain
Long deep breath, eyes open wide
Ease that tension deep inside.
