Words and Roses

Sweet pale scented roses
spread across these old pages
full of words that tell a story
for life that`s lived in many stages

soft petals protected by thorns
perfumed fragrance all around
emphasising a sensitive side
tenderness that`s to be found

Stormy Emotions 

Sad words float up to the surface
tossed wildly in the turbulence
despair screaming through the storm
as the waves smoother everything
the cold chilling through to the bone
as the weather takes a turn for the worst

which direction will help come from
will any salvation arrive in time 
not able to tread water much longer
disappearing slowly under the surface
for there`s nothing more to give
as these stormy emotions take me down !

Bowl full of Love

one more cup of kittens
curled up in my bowl
purring so contently
making my life whole

with their tiny little ears
alert bright blue eyes
and sweet pink noses
what a wonderful surprise!

Language of Words !

Burn sentences so the words turn to dust
take each letter and cleanse the poetry I write

Let the blind see what the deaf can't hear
spurring on the lame to win the fight

So mix and spin the language of passion
creating pictures from deep within the mind

Spoken or written, let all the words flow
capturing them within the soul for us to find !

it`s all about painting pictures through the use of words,
letting my ink flow through my pen,
releasing emotions from deep within my soul.
words spreading along the pages of the book,
creating wonderful scenes that`s pleasing to the heart......!

Ride cancelled by the rain

Drenched through to the core
as water streams down
splashing over everything
cascading to the ground
roaring around the yard
heavy droplets landing
stopping the journey dead
this ride cancelled by the rain

These bikes stand there alone
as the storm rages on
no chance of staying dry
for everything is drowned
this adventure has ceased
at least for this afternoon
just wait until tomorrow
and our journey will resume

This key to my heart, is not easy to win
for many have tried to gain my hand
nothing ever comes easy for me
so tell me.... do you have what I need
as only one will win my heart
