When Dad

Brought Mum flowers,

He would root cuttings, then 

Plant them in her garden to grow.

Premium Member The Watch End
You struggle with right and wrong
I watch and worry so
With prayers I helped along
Now time for me to go
Who will pray when I am gone...

Premium Member Dream Again
Where do dreams go ever they die
To memories that stay the years
Memories fade as the tears dry
Dream again despite all your fears
A dream will give life a new try...

Our life story, like a zebra for us,
Our life story, is like a zebra for us,
A black band, a white band, then a big arse,
And in the end, as everybody knows,
Prepare to receive by the hoof the final blow!

On Living and Working
Living this life and trying to make a living
Is sometimes hard,
And it requires taking along with some giving,
With due regard
To the fact; you’ll need to do some adlibbing.

ww11 mothers day wish
i'm somewhere in rome
quite far from home 
though many many miles apart
across the sea and into your heart 
i send my love and wish for cheer
to abide with you from year to year...

A Prelude
Shy is the February sun Above the frazzled fatherland However hearts are not undone Giving instead a warmer brand Holding one closer under the sun.
A prelude to Valentine's day.

            FINDING JOY

Oh I find such endless joy and never tire of life
Each day reveals a new found friend
Some souls vow man and wife
Loneliness will twist and bend
But love defeats black strife

Premium Member Celestial songs
 Chords  upon strings are played with finesse
bringing forth celestial  songs
As angels their slender strings caress 
 A symphony of harps played by heavenly throngs
soothing the soul  while they bless...

Premium Member All I Want For Christmas is .... Christmas
It disappeared, we gave it away.
I’d like to find it again, for sure.
A good old fashioned holiday,
one without the digital manure,
the hype and verbal foreplay.

Premium Member Determination Route
Endless choices you make daily
Deciding between many paths 
Choosing the one that is satisfactorily
Leading to a bypath
Making to decide more carefully

Premium Member A Tragedy

A tragedy, a train derailed. 
Not far in deep grief of the scene; 
homeward-bound it so tried, but failed.
Burnt cork smell and images seen 
veiled as they lay upon cold ground.

Dare I
Dare I hold thy hand gently within mine
And speak this day of my love great for you
Can heaven high above withhold dawn’s sign
Of light repelling night’s dark grasp anew
Or wanting sweet lips most cerise as thine.

With your head on my lap, your breath falls deep.
My gentle fingers swirl and twirl your hair.
A hidden smile conveyed by your cheeks.
My hand then lowers to your face with care.
And beautiful eyes are now lost to sleep....

Tasting Bliss
Is buying good wine just a pleasure, a joy for the whole world to see? Or is it a personal measure, to satisfy no one but me, then kept, as a personal treasure! ~

Eagles Culture
The Eagle, king of all birds, 
Found on the highest of mountains and the tallest of trees, 
Seen, within a tiny fraction of eternity, 
Strong and mighty, swaying in the deepest of clouds. 
The Eagle in our souls, ours to manifest....

familiar things 
and long laughs
smiles that glow on our faces 
family pulls life in 
and seperates it in equal share's 
family all shades
of familiar face's nose's and ears
family share the same joys
hence we cry the same tears...

Barbarians trampled through the empire. They came in waves from wherever was home. Boors killed Romans and set buildings afire. Cities were laid to waste when tribes would roam. These ruffians lit Rome’s funeral pyre.

Over Ambition of Human
Natural disasters are unstoppable disasters
No way to ignore and go away from them
But additional tension man-made disasters
No limitation of aches grow in innocent heart
In fact, the symbol of over ambition of human.

Premium Member Where Mother Nature Sunbathes
Mother Nature stretches across a floor wearing stones and beads of sand. Placidly she warms herself beneath the sun where shore meets the shining waters of azure sea, and in this place I could not love her more! written July 14, 2016

Premium Member Night Watchman
The flame in contest combats the chill of the night
I see an old man in remembrance of his youth
his words gaped in jest if only to shroud life’s plight
scars of countless carnal lies a hub of untruth.
In the brazier raindrops snarl, routine so trite.

Jonson's Ghost
The inn had gone to waste: I’d sold it off in haste.
Awaking in the gloom, as orbs lit up the room,
I recognised the ghost of Jonson, the old host.
I said, ‘I thought you’d come’ - and poured myself a rum.
He shouted, ‘Hey, you louse, how dare you sell MY house!’

Forsaken Soul Serenaded
Quintain of: sorrow, despair, agony, misery, lament scoring 
Dolesome drum o'er jaded psyche taps a dark, palling 
Hamstrung harp bridled soul with dissonant chords 
Shrill flute a dreary, eerie melody wafts o'er drifting 
Melancholy tenor of wailing violin doth all availing hope

Lying on the Beach
Two pair of shoes lie on the beach by the pier,
Both sandy too and much worse off for wear.
A pair of whoppers faintly reach my ear,
Both taller than the last one told I swear!
Two pair of shoes lie, on the beach by the pier!
