LOVE IS A FRAGILE THING - FOR JAN ALLISON


A response written after reading
 "You've changed my life completely"     
  by Jadazzle United
   For Jan and Darren
            (Soulmates sint rara et mirabile)



Love is such a fragile thing,
Softer than a butterflies wing.
The gentle entwining of mind and soul,
A linking of passions that makes one whole.
It can rise and fall just as the tide,
And link two people across oceans wide
It brings forth such joy and pure delight
Creates a bond that holds them tight
 
 
Love is such a fragile thing,
As beautiful as Angels sing.
It will lift you so high above the earth,
And give your heart a soothing berth.
It fills your senses your thoughts as well,
Your entire being resonates like a  bell. 
Promises exchanged sweet words spoken,
To last an  eternity and never be broken.
 
 
Love is such a fragile thing,
Passion it enflames desire it does bring.
Lost to the world in ardour and delight,
All else fades from the lovers sight.
Ensconced in a world of poetic diction,
Wrapped up in each other as if in a fiction.
Still even love sometimes can go awry,
But in the end true love can never die.

A COOKED GOOSE





When you come home late at night
Open the door and turn on the light
You had better be extremely quite
Or your goodly wife you may excite

And I'm sure she will not be polite
When she orders you out of her sight
There is no use trying to be contrite
The dog will have company overnight

Your goose is well and truly cooked alright

Daydream

Red rambling roses.
Pink parading  pansies
Yellow yawning ylang ylang
Scarlet shining strawberries

Gorgeous growing gardenias
Beautiful bending bracken
Lovely lilting lilies
Attractive ambling agapanthus 

Carefully crafted
Meticulously maintained
Fastidiously fashioned
Delightful daydream

FAIR WEATHER FRIENDS - COLLABORATION WITH JAN ALLISON

 
 You told me we’d always be friends
Out of the blue our friendship ends
I was your ‘forever friend’ - you told me so
Now you simply don’t want to know
 
Thought you the one on who I could rely
A comforting shoulder when I wanted to cry
A shining beacon that brought me light
Our friendship was a pure delight
 
You vanished, didn’t say a word 
Now all my questions go unheard
No reply I need so much to know why
How could you not have said good bye!

A tear I shed as I think of you tonight
Of all that was so happy and bright
I love you still more than you could know
I am desolate that I cannot tell you so

Soul mate and friend we were one
Linked in a bond that could not be undone
Yet here I sit the bond broken
My heart aches, my pain unspoken

Delight

Dappled sunlight on emerald leaves,
Rhododendron trusses painted in rainbows.
Daffodil ablaze in golden glory,
Roses dipped in  dark burgundy.

Garden of beauty a temptation to all,
Vivid colours crying out to be adored.
Gently descending floating on the breeze,
Vibrant shades of azure adorn her wings.

Delight to the world a thing of beauty,
Resting motionless amidst a rainbow.
Densely clustered petals her throne,
Resplendent in the mottled light.

LOST

Sitting quietly beneath the old blue gum tree Flowers surround me lined in neat rows on the lawn White and blue, tall and short placed as if by gods’ decree My eyes mist, oh god what she had undergone Her face clouded in pain, body still as a frightened fawn The room white, Spartan white sheets drape the bed Her raven black hair no more, so much left unsaid Eyes of fierce emerald green now dull and sedate God let fall tears the day her mortal coil she did shed Soon again in each others arms, standing at heaven’s gate

A Reflection On Truth

Why? Love? Friends leave! Where is truth? Where is love in life? Truth is but an idle construct! Friendship nothing but a barren fair weather desert! The world manifests itself through hollow people, without truth,without love or passion! Truth but leaves you naked and will expose your soul then to find it pierced by the hypocrisy and cynicism of those with empty hearts. Truth is a masquerade dressed in fantastic costume by hollow men of no faith, manipulated and moulded to their own rhythmic dance. The world turns on falsehood and deception,truth and trust sequestered,love forgotten! Hollow words cascade from the mouths of fair weather friends! Truth is usurped by hollow men! Where is trusts sanction? Where is truth? Faith dies! Trust? Why? Written by Shane Cooper 12/03/2015

OYSTERS

https://s-media-cache- ak0.pinimg.com/236x/72/97/79/7297796a1920d9e3fb4a59ff6da498ab.jpg Pin 4198: Disney Gallery - Alice in Wonderland Series (Baby Oyster) Variations on The Walrus and the Carpenter" a narrative poem by Lewis Carroll that appeared in his book Through the Looking-Glass, published in December 1871. OYSTERS The tide was low the sun was high The beach was long and very dry The moon had argued it wanted to stay But try as it might, could not get its way The beach was dry and very long Two figures came walking along They wept as they went and quietly spoke Of cockle shell boats rowed by gentle folk With the sun high and tide so low They could see where the oysters grow The Walrus exclaimed I have a strong hunch That we have found a delicacy for lunch The beach was long and very dry Dining under the open sky The carpenter scraped butter on his bread While saying those oysters looked over fed The tide was low the sun was high Hear me oysters he did descry Come and join our party under the Sun Where you will have lots of wonderful fun The beach was dry and very long The oysters came singing a song La da dee we are happy as can be We will party then go back to the sea With the sun high and the tide so low One oyster cried please do not go But the other oysters were more sanguine For the carpenter offered them some wine The beach was long and very dry There seemed to be nothing awry The oysters sat and listened to tall tales Of dragons and knights and ships in full sail The tide was low the sun was high Alas the oysters end was nigh The Walrus said oysters do not decline The carpenter and I shall start to dine The beach was dry and very long No more was sung the happy song The walrus looked at the gentle sea swell The carpenter held the last empty shell Dedicated to my friends Mikki & The Queen of Ghali Makers of the most wonderful magic ~Completed 22/04/2015~

SEASONS A COLLABORATION WITH JAN ALLISON

Spring
 
Cool breeze gently blows
Brilliant butterflies dancing                
Rainbows in motion                          
 
Summer
 
Glorious gold beach
Sandcastles reach for the sky
Children having fun
 
 
Autumn
 
Crisp leaves fall slowly
Green glens veiled in falls blanket
Sunset beneath trees
 
 
Winter
 
Cold icy morning
Dancing whirling wonderland
Snowflakes from heaven

The Queen of laughter





Delight and laughter are your stock and trade,
With rhyme you carry our worries away,
You’re much more fun than a penny arcade.
Words sparkle like an egg by Faberge,
Dancing across poems like a cabaret.

A footle on poop, you’re back in the loop,
With words tastier than alphabet soup.
The limericks you write are out of sight,
Leaving us soupers no time to regroup,
Before the next poem gives pure delight.


Written 07/07/2015 for my dear friend Jan. 
"When you smile all Soupers smile with you"
