A dream by the lake side
It is always the same dream
You and I by the lakeside, watching the sun set
In silence and our bare feet feeling the stream
The fading sun closing a chapter hard to forget

It is always a cloudy and stormy night closing in
Vividly...Read More

Passion, Purity and Power
The colour red has much meaning
it reveals so much energy to express
providing a passion that knows no end
action in the battlefield to victory no less

The lady who's young and so attractive
wears that red outfit makes the lad's click
has got them...Read More

Cherry Blossom
A wonderful sight to behold.
Your grandeur is more
Than meets the eye.

From absolutely spectacular bloom
Until you've fallen in grace
Meeting earth, withering 
Like snow with an ebb
And flow of gentle breezes.

Symbolising life;
Powerful, exhilarating, sublime 
Yet short lived.
Reminding us how brief our lives...Read More

Lament of My Life
In a world of love I was befittingly born,
A time of respect and appreciation;
In one instinct I became destitute,
With one wrong step I fell into depreciation.

It had nothing to do with love or hate,
Money matters were neither the case;
In one...Read More

Six-Word Couplet Series Encore
Make a wish
Raising the bar
A shooting star

The truth
The truth untold 
Watch it unfold

Wanting to fly
In the sky

Sky's the limit
Dreams don't diminish 
Pushing to finish

My lost tooth
Symbolising my youth 

Far from platonic
More than euphoric

Artwork - what am I
Scratching their heads 
They look at me
Am I a tree stump
Am I a grotesque face
Inside I am  laughing
I know what I am.

Am a freak of nature
Plus the imaginative mind
Of my master
Stand back 
see the root of me
My ivy hair...Read More

Your charming verbalising
Your charming whispering
Your charming smiling
Your charming dancing
All are in the train of my dreams.
And they always catching me like fire
Always making my slumber be placid,
Always baking a life without vain,
Always calling my name so sweetly,
Some people say I'm...Read More

Premium Member Terrorism Failed
United in isolated collectivity,
Standing erect for reflective solidarity,
Sited to enable individuality,
Symbolising the dead, the loss in totality.

So many damaged people, with so much to remind,
There are tear-laden memories for those left behind.
A tangible grief can still be heard in their...Read More

The Christmas Tree
I just love the Christmas tree which we welcome into our homes, 
Symbolising nature, the natural, challenging our views and roams;
Settling in our cosy living rooms, the empire of many, each of us, 
Independent, not asking for anything: assistance, change...Read More

With this ring
The centre of the wedding ring has seen some of the greatest fights
Set off by the wedding bells
Shiny and sparkling, its aesthetics deceiving
By invitation only, 
The contestants are lovers, often newlyweds
Candidates for eternal love and happiness
But finding only bitterness

Insecurity, jealousy,...Read More

Love weaving harmony as flowers in Wreath
Wreath ring of flowers holding hand-in-hand
Hands in circular unity symbolising eternity 
Eternal is belief in Trinity, Christianity and Christ
Christ a Messiah rising from dead absolving sins

Sins mounting, hoping Christ to descend from Heaven 
Heaven like atmosphere humans creating in Christmas
Christmas,...Read More

Stars of My Hope
Twinkling in an empty sky
Emerging even when the dawn
Puts in a misty face
Heralding the birth of another day
Even in this jungle.

Here again begins my journey
While outside my hut
Here in the open space
I in upward gaze see
A lone-mirthful star
Sitting calmly in...Read More

A speckle of green,
In a vast sea of concrete,
Quite an enchanting scene,
To the eyes a visual treat.

Through a crack in the pavement,
Slowly rises a tiny weed,
Free from all enslavement,
One in a million of its breed.

When I saw it,
My eyes filled...Read More
