Tea Time

Kettle's on the hob a-boiling
so it must be time for a cup of tea
china tea pot is warming
with biscuits at the ready

so come on in and join us
as we sit and put the world to right
let's enjoy a little catch up
hear the laughter with smiles so bright!

from a single tear drop of passion
 falling slowly with each painful emotion
hitting the surface of the water
a tiny speck in this huge ocean

as each drop hits the clear surface
causing a massive disturbance
forming ever increasing circle
that`s bitter with each occurrence 

each ripple moves slowly away
taking the pain from this sad moment
releasing the tension as they go
leaving just a glimpse of movement !

Painted faces
Custard pies
Great big boots
And googly eyes

A funny smile
Or great big grin
Wicked laughter
A wobberly chin

A silly joke
For us to share
Slap stick fun
With all the flare

Slippery slidy
Banana skins
Smiles and laughter
The fun begins

Remembering a childrens party and all the laughter !!

Pictures from the Soul

The life blood 
of my whole being
oozes freely from my pen
flowing across these pages
expressing emotions
from deep within

For as it flows
pictures take shape
through descriptive words
the inner soul comes to life
as my heart beats
from release

The ink continues
writing from the heart
almost racing across the paper
imparting all that`s hidden inside
in this fleeting moment
of sheer emotion

A point in time
captured in words
to be treasured and loved
releasing emotions from within
my heart and soul 
expressed in ink

Silence of the snow

A white blanket covers the land
cotton wool over field and lane
a silence muffles everything
as stillness takes over our world
the sky feels so heavy laden
waiting to release all its weight
the land sits warily below
to see what the heavens will do
foot prints run across the landscape
as its owner tries to find food
a tail or an ear maybe seen
through drifts as it goes scurrying by
an owl above hovers on the breeze
its keen eyes looking for some prey
against the brightness of the snow
its meal can be seen so clearly
from the comfort of my window
I can watch the world silently
the wintery scene`s so beautiful
a wonderful landscape to behold

Mothers are loving treasures
wonderfully special creatures

always there with a warm hug
a chat that comes with tea in a mug

fresh cooked meals for all of us
a shoulder to share, never a fuss

so lets us celebrate our Mother
for there will never be another.

Happy Mothers day

My Mother

Mother, you were my soul mate
the one person I would turn to
all fairness and never a cross word
your kindness and wisdom shone through

I miss your gentle guidance 
you were more than a friend to me
not forgetting your fab cooking
and chatting over a cup of tea

so today I want to thank you
for all the wonders you've sent my way
and tell the world how amazing you are
I love you, Happy Mothering Sunday
