Think not only of oneself
Keep your anger on the shelf
Thoughts uttered now in haste
Can only be with venom laced.
Instead why not take a breath
Let the ire within you set
Close your eyes, meditate
At times it’s best to stop and wait.
For kind words often softly spoken
Mend a heart so sadly broken
A gentle hand, a warm embrace
Can put a smile upon a face.

A view from the deserted village. Achill Island.
A new composition of photography and the written word
The Irish optimist
Children call. That music sound
Ice cream man is coming ‘round
Mr. whippy, ninety nines
Barbecues and deck chairs.
People thronged on beaches bronze
Stripped to the waist, skimpy thongs.
Sandcastles on Dollymount strand
Body beautiful, all over tanned.
Air condition traffic jam
Sandwich made, egg and ham
Packed with cans, suntan oil
Melting now in silver foil.
Make the best it won’t last
An Irish optimist forecast
Global warming now you know
Soon we’ll be knee deep in snow.

Fuschia in a garden on the Northside.
With the extreme heat that we are experiencing at present it’s worth keeping in mind the dangers associated be it fire or water. So enjoy it while it lasts and make sure to leave everything as you found it.
