Just around the corner

Just around the corner

It’s just around the corner
Only six more weeks to go
It’s such a lovely image
As it makes my old heart glow
Just thinking of the time I’ll have
When were on the south west road
Travelling down to Nannup
I’m in the holiday mode

When we get there, to that river
In the silence of the trees
Where the birds they sing so brightly
As branches ride the breeze
I am going to put my feet up
As I drink some honey wine
Then strum away on my old guitar
With the weather oh so fine.

I’ll sit there by that river
In the very early morn
Just watch the sunrise sparkle
As another day is born
How I love to be in Nannup
When spring brings out the flowers
Sitting by that river
Feeling life’s sweet power.

    The child in me is always anxious when it comes to holiday time, Peter. Can't wait for it to come. Even if it's only 4 or 5 days it's something different and it's exciting. You got me all worked up, my friend. Really enjoyed this one.... Robert.

    I know what you mean Robert, but as much as going away I adore coming home again, We only go away for sevens days the longest usually. I don't like leaving the dog for two long. I appreciate your comments, my friend... Have a great weekend, mate.....peter

    This sounds nice - can I go with? Just kidding. I will take the honey wine. Did Vera like her little poem? I am hanging on. I still have many miles to go, but not even I know where. Thanks for sharing... Lucilla

    You would love Inverness with it's 'River Ness' flowing through the heart of it with green banks and brilliant Daffodils in Spring. It's as if an artist left blobs of yellow every few meters, James.

    Nice thoughts to keep in mind Peter as next week I head off for vacation myself. So glad I met you Peter. I thank God often for your truthful comments. In being understanding and caring you are generous in sharing your wisdom. If I ever get to your beautiful Country I would really enjoy just sitting down and chatting with you. For it is all appreciated. Take care my friend. Give my regards to Vera.

    Hi Cuz so good to see you on the site again. Everything alright with you now. Did you get my email. I really hope they did give you the wrong diagnoses, and that you are not going to suffer any more. I think you do need a trip to Perth again. We're going to Nannup this time, I love it there in the middle of the bush. Thank for your kind comments Suzi....crazy Alfxxxxxxxx

    A very nice write with good imagery and flow. I would suggest you stop starting lines with the word"and".And is just a filler word there are much better choices.

    Some of my best duets are with soulful strummers. The bond is created in the trip and the bond formed through just spontaneously playing together. Have a good one my friend. Maybe we can give it a go down the line.

    Hi Charles, I thank you for your tips, my friend about touching the poem up a bit. I must admit you are right about those 'Ands' so I replaced them. Your help is most valuable, and appreciated....peter

    Gosh Peter, I want to join you on the road. Have a bit of that honey wine and we can sing a few tunes and share a few tales!

    If you can play blues dave, I would much rather play blues harp with you, I am pretty good on that. Used to always used to splay with the Maori boys. Great musicians they are. Maybe you'll travel to Oz one day, who knows what is round the corner...peter

    This would be cool Dave. I think you might be a real player though my friend whereas I am but a strummer. But it would be fun. I appreciate you nice comments, mate....peter
