Be True to Yourself

Indulge in the richness
soak up the love of life
discover new treasures
where ever they may be
delve deep and see
then you will find
don`t bury your head
in the cold wet sand
open your eyes and see
what the world has to offer
never say never
always be true to yourself
honesty and kindness
makes a true person
smile, and the world smiles too
if you hurt, don`t forget
there`s always someone
worse off than yourself
with humility to all
you will never walk alone..!

This Tender Moment

A tender moment
a sweet scented aura
silent tranquility
with petals so soft
smooth cool pebbles
so dark and shiny
contrasting so well
with all that`s around

Restful pale colours
pleasant to the eyes
calming the heart beat
so lightly touching
this tender moment
caressing senses
smooths stones, soft petals
contrasting so well

Oceans of time 

Oceans eternal
ebbing and flowing
caressing the land
just like two lovers

through time immortal
these partners exist
entwined together
so passionately kissed

some times it`s fearsome
crashing against rocks
or a tender splash
where sea meets the land

through the sands of time
to the depths so deep
oceans eternal
to the ends of the world

I was challenged, by Carolyn, to write this, just from the title....lol!

Ode to Nature

Different shapes and colours
Make up the world around me
No matter how or where I look
It`s so beautiful to see

The flowers in the meadows
So colourful and bright
Swaying in the soft breeze
Make up a wonderful sight

The diversity of nature
That live with us on earth
Have a right to be respected
As they all have great worth

Nature has a way with things
This can be so unexpected
What I thought was derelict
Has beauty thats protected

The buildings all around me
The fabric of our lives
No matter where I live now
Our nature always survives

Our world is really lovely
Its real, not just in a book
So if you think it`s done for
Go out and take another look!


The sun is out and every thing is looking so alive and beautiful, we are so grateful to see all the diversity of nature all around and be able to see, touch, taste and smell it.  We are all so lucky.

What is beauty?

We all see it in different ways
it`s in the eye of the beholder
with trends setting the target
as they change through time
beauty can be only skin deep
it can hide an ugly heart
the cover gives us a glimpse
so open it up and look inside

A person`s personality
is a better judge of beauty
look with your heart and soul
not just your eyes and lust
never take beauty for granted
as all can be deceived
for in the end these will break you
thus finding it hard to trust again

Look at the eyes, not the false paint
they are the windows to the soul
open the pathway to the heart
let these show you the way to go
so remember that beauty can be evil
hurt you through to the very core
be strong and take a second look
beauty is innocence and charm
respectfulness and deep love.

Losing you......

My happy life was ripped open to the core
when you were taken suddenly, I fell to the floor

I felt lost, so alone, no reason to carry on
unanswered questions left, I was the dying swan

I pleaded with the angels to return you to me
but they wouldn't listen, just said that you were free 

its hard for the ones that are left down on earth
for we must continue living, without much mirth

I guess you are out of pain now, and that was why
you were given you own wings, and taught to fly

Beauty of nature

Red poppies in summer breeze
blue bells carpeting the ground
yellow and orange autumn leaves
white snow muffling every sound

Cool clear lakes surrounded by trees
bright speckled meadows sway in the air
rough rocky mountains high in the sky
barren dunes carrying hope on a prayer

Through depths of the mighty oceans
dark, unexplored, far from all reaches
crashing around rugged coast lands
or touching long sandy beaches

Such awesome beauty of nature
showing the diversity of all
for this planet is so unique
from the mighty to the very small!

Pictures through poetry

My pen loves to write
painting pictures
through the use of words
dancing across the pages
of our many lives
each one, their own story

Everyone`s different
always changing
bright coloured moments
each individual
yet touching others
as their stories are told

All joined together
to make up our world
vibrant and colourful
from all walks of life
my pen loves to write
painting many pictures......

No Writing Today

My pen is so shaky
this ink is nearly dry
scratching across the lines
I`m just wondering,  why?

For strong emotions are felt
my heart is pumping fast
though I feel so alone
this state, I hope won`t last

The words don`t come easy
or is it, I can`t cope?
if that is the reason
not too sure there`s any hope

As poems are my life line
expressions of who I am
and if I`m unable to write
then I am just a sham

This feeling is unpleasant
I seem to have lost my way
struggling to let it flow
so I`ll rest my pen today

Summertime Blues

Summer time can be a problem
if you suffer from hay fever or bugs
the heat seems to make it even worse
so you have to stock up on all the drugs

Close by water or in the evening
appears to exasperate it more
but being indoors in this extreme heat
is not what you want to do, that`s for sure!

Those pesky midges attack your skin
red itchy welts just doesn't look so good
along with a runny nose and sneezing
this is not summer, as I understood

Another nasty thing that seems to occur
sun burnt skin, red and sore to the touch
and it really looks so unpleasant
all this bright hot sun can be too much !

So you`re all huddled up in the winter
remember all the suffering you moaned about
when the heat brings the summer time blues
take your medication and go on out!

Masks of Life

At times throughout life
we have all worn a mask
some happy and jovial
others sad or menacing

we hide behind them
afraid of consequences
uncertain of ourselves
scared we`ll be ridiculed

the stage is our play ground
each mask defines an act
some wear wings and halos
to show their goodness in life

some masks give us courage
to cope with life when we`re hurting
other masks hide our real bad side
so we can`t see who they really are

the Devil lurks back stage
an evil grin across his lips
ready to reap callous mischief
upon the unsuspecting victim

a checkered board upon the floor
arches decorate the wings
detached hands that hold our attention
with items that accumulate

so as we cross the stage of life
with our masks to hide behind
remember that the script can change
and true features are best every time..!

Through Misty Woods

When everything
just gets to me
there`s this place
I escape to
along the path
through misty woods

Tall trees stand there
disappearing
into the mists
leading to peace
my haven there
through misty woods

Shadows abound
mysteries here
somewhere to hide
no one would know
here I can walk
through misty woods

These mossy trees
standing in line
leading me on
along the track
to my escape
through misty woods

Why won`t my ink flow?

My pen is shaky
the ink nearly dry
scratching across the lines
I`m just wondering, why?

for strong emotions felt
my heart is pumping fast
though I feel so lonely
this state, I know won`t last

the words just come easy
or is it. I can`t cope
if that is the reason
not to sure there`s any hope

as words are my life line
expression of who I am
and I`m unable to write
then am I just a sham?

this feeling is so strange
I seem to have lost my way
struggling to let it flow
so I`ll rest my pen today

Frog`s Eyes


on shimmering surface
with ripples passing by
reflecting many colours
from sun bright in the sky

peeping through the water
it was really a surprise
watching out for it`s meal
there`s a large pair of eyes

twas only for a moment
but I watched as it near`d
colours, green, white and blue
this amphibian appear`d

the swelling of its throat
was such an awesome sight
raising its head gave a croak
its eyes catching the light

for this dear handsome frog
who has gently touched my heart,
leaping at a winged beast
does splash down and then depart

Sorrowful Moment.....

My soul weeps tears of sadness
as my spirit`s torn in two
deep lament from all this hurt
not sure I`ll make it through

The will to live is dying
there`s no more fight within me
as I clutch my bleeding heart
nothing left to set me free

All essence have been ripped out
my soul is drained, laid out bare
my pen`s still, I can not write
so ask...will you say a prayer?


© Lissie Bull 2014 All rights reserved



Life`s lesson...

Life can prove to be very fraught
even when you have the things you need
but when you find yourself without
there`s tough times ahead, guaranteed

Not all are born with a silver spoon
that helps them float through life easily
as for many it`s a wooden spoon
left to struggle on begrudgingly

These folk appreciate all they have
no matter how little it appears
for love will carry them through life
it softens hardship and calms the fears

Feel sorry for those who have everything
they can`t understand true possession
sheer thrill of saving for an item....
but can they learn?  this is the question !

So wear a smile and count your blessings
with careful thought, you can be a king
for love and health is much better
rather than owning everything

Wise Owl Hunting


Watching, wondering
the wise old owl looks
ever vigilant
its talons, curled hooks

listening tentatively
for mice down below
as she sits so still
silent as the snow

her plumage blends in
with nature around
patience is the game
as she makes no sound

how long she will wait
longer than I would
her eyes miss nothing
for this owl`s so good

I watch her for hours
now chilled to the bone
so I`ll take my leave
let her hunt alone

Picnic with a Cat

Come, join the picnic
Mistress pussy cat
sat in the garden
no need for a hat

as the sun is out
shining warm and bright
with you beside me
makes an awesome sight

a piece of chicken
to start you off well
followed by some cream
it`s the purfect spell

now you're curled up snug
for you've had your lot
sleep off this picnic
in this sunny spot.!

Transported by Music

This scrap of parchment
that holds such melody
discarded on the floor
no more to be played
sad, lonely unwanted
torn at the edges
notes that dance no more
a sad end to the tune

the stave, left unfinished
crotchets and quavers
they remain in limbo
never to be played again
this sad state of affair
this song will not be sung
trampled all over
as no one will ever know

how awesome if someone
were to find this dirty scrap
fall in love with its tune
and take up the cause
rework this lamented tune
complete the master piece
present it to the world
for all to listen once more.

from such humble beginnings
such beauty can be found
to fill the heart with peace
once the symphony is done
so sit back and enjoy
close your eyes and see
the places you`re transported
through the medium of music.

From small beginnings.......

this tiny fragile bud
struggling hard
to hold it`s head
towards the sun
each day growing
stronger and taller

until one day the moment
when this bud changes
and for this to happen
its opens up slowly
tentatively revealing
the secrets held within

a splash of vivid colour
can be seen from inside
as its sepals move aside
so all can be exposed
such passionate reds
lighting up the woods

as time moves along
the bud opens wider
its velvety petals
curl further to reveal
the heart of this flower
its beauty for all to see

The wonder of an opening bud, revealing the soft bright coloured petals of sheer beauty....!

Secretive Waters

Through rolling rock formations
undulating the waters edge
reflecting the different strata
worn down forming a ledge

Light reflecting off the water
as the high sun gives chase
colours of an artist palette
mirrored over the rocks surface

Rich oranges through to cool blues
strata stripes running through each stone
the silence of this wilderness
creating the perfect chilling zone

Peacefully secretive waters
somewhere to chill  and escape
so strikingly mesmerizing
meandering through this landscape

Release these Cats

Big cats pacing round and round
in their locked cage domains
a distorted view of the world
through steel bars and chains

Concrete floors that`re so unreal
only a cold man-made space
there`s a sadness in their eyes
nowhere to stretch, pounce or chase

These mighty felines from the wild
should be allowed to roam free
live as Mother Earth intended
to raise their cubs lovingly.!

Teasels

Teasels in my garden
looking good today
standing tall and straight
in the breeze they sway

Tiny purple petals
explode in the sunlight
all between the spikes
as they stand upright

With thin green leaves
surrounding the flower
this beautiful plant
grows tall like a tower

Nature is so awesome
always amazing me
colour, size and scent
so much variety

Memories through Photos

leafing through the albums
happy events of the past
remembering faces
staring up at me
that holiday we had
laughs and merriment
your graduation
how proud I felt
now you've moved on
with a partner just for you
I've new memories to make
maybe a grandchild then
and more photos for me
to collect and to cherish
my photos mean a lot
I wouldn't be without them

Summer Music for all

If music is the soul of life
long may is play 
to uplift and enhance
there`s a genre for every day

music you can dance to
happy tunes for all
puts a smile on your face
help you to walk tall

lilting floaty music
meditation of the soul
takes away your stresses
helping you to come whole

Loud deep throbbing beats
drums pounding at your chest
electric sounds blast cob webs
for some these tunes is the best

Some music makes your feet tap
from rock and roll to blues
there`s something for everyone
so put on your dancing shoes

If music be the food of love
then we must share it around
so all can have happiness
my listening to the musical sound!

Life`s Puzzle

Life is just a puzzle
made up many pieces
interlocking together
as the picture increases

all the different parts
put together, makes a whole
a photograph of our lives
but are we in control ?

as this puzzle gains size
new people will appear
building a bigger picture
that's changing every year

for as we grow older
more pieces will be found
to slot into their places
fitting into their surround

for this puzzle never ends
each piece is so unique
it`s the story of our lives
and shrouded in mystique

Hidden Hatred

this pain I feel at your mistrust
the words that you spoke, hurt me deep
I know they weren't intended for me
at night I lay in bed and weep

It felt as if a knife was used
to pierce my unhappy heart
I wonder, were you smiling then?
were you stood there, playing your part

I cant tell you how angry I am
as you have no idea I was there
thoughts of you speaking behind my back
show me that you really don't care

How do I deal with these feelings?
you appear to harbour such hatred
maybe a line should be drawn now
having positive thoughts ......instead!

Taking control.....

My past shapes my future
it may not have always be good
what doesn't kill me, makes me strong
but now I stand up where I should

Love is a powerful weapon
it can conquer more than the sword
and doesn't leave a blooded scar
as healing is its goal and reward

So I stand here bruised and shaken
and see the future more clearly
head held high for I`m full of hope
surrounded by all I hold dearly

Don't you ever think that you have won
for my own life, I now take command
I am a person in my own right
as I`ll never bow to your demand !

Life`s like that.....

Ink flows from my soul`s pen
expressing my emotions deep
pouring across the pages
secure enough for me to keep

for this ink paints many pictures
images from deep inside
cleansing my heart of stresses
for I have smiled, laughed and cried

some times my pen flows fast
words pouring out with force
other days, it hardly moves
but that's how live goes, of course

as long as the ink flows freely
I know that my life will cope
for expressions are so necessary
it gives us meaning and hope..!

Submerged Isolation

Why is it I feel such sadness ?
when there`s happiness all around
trapped, submerged within this pool
these waters drown out any sound

Darkness engulfing me down here
coldness seeping into each bone
slowly freezing my heart and soul
I'm destined to remain alone

Air`s being squeezed out of my lungs
so intense, it`s pulling me down
suspended in isolation
descending to my grave, I drown !

Childhood Memories

The little things remembered
when once I was a child
of using our imaginations
how we laughed and smiled

Waiting at the village green
for the school bus to come our way
no computers or mobiles seen
chalk boards, the order of the day

After all the chores were done
we played outside in all weather
go-karts, rounders or hide-n-seek
as long as our gang was together

Our pocket money seemed a lot
down the sweet shop with our friends
blackjacks and lemon sherbets
all stocked up for the weekends

Sleep overs and parties too
or helping out down on the farm
getting muddy or a cut knee
all was good, no need for alarm

It`s a shame it`s not like that now
kids seem to grow up too fast
they should hold on to their childhood
enjoy themselves and make it last

Misty Morning

There`s a little track I know
it leads on through the wood
a muddy trail for me to follow
somewhere that feels so good

Just love those misty mornings
as I stroll along the way
where I can think things through
setting me right for that day

When the mists are really thick
the distant trees are shrouded
I can`t see that far ahead
the atmosphere is clouded

Trees like sentries on each side
as if guarding hallowed ground
protecting the woodland path
from the perils all around

As I walk along this track
these misty mornings are best
feeling safe within this wood
for I know that I am blessed

Tufted Lynx

Amongst the full canopied forests
hidden from view fir their protection
these beautiful big cats live our their lives
away from human intervention

Their tracks seen across the snowy range
for cold is no bother to this cat
as their large paws act like snowshoes
it`s so suited to it`s habitat

With long black tufts as tips on it`s ears
helping to enhance their good hearing
along with it`s large bright amber eyes
even with these, they`re disappearing

From short bobbed tail, with it`s black tip
to a handsome flared facial ruff
longer hind legs, making it stoop
their life can really be so tough

Such striking animal to be watched
like our domestic cats, they creep
and silently pounce on it`s prey
followed by the fatal biting sweep

So as we save this beautiful Lynx
by preserving it`s habitat
we`ll also save ancient forests
a winning situation,  how`s that!!

Day Break

With the stillness of the morning
as the sun starts to rise
long shadows across the garden
and awesome colours in the skies

Hearing the birds sing their chorus
as the sin`s warmth begins to show
a gentle breeze rustles in the leaves
it`ll soon be time to stir and go

Until that moment, I`ll lay here
and savour the start of the day
listening to the world waking
so therefore, in my bed, I`ll stay !

Burglar`s Demands 

Pennies in my purse
pounds in his pocket
silver in the drawer
cheques in a docket

Gold in the bank vaults
diamonds on his ear
pearls around my neck
there`s nothing to fear

Treasures are all safe
until that fateful night
when you came a calling
and gave us a fright

Robbery on your mind
you made your demands
you took our treasure
possessions in your hands

Disappearing Snow Leopard

A desolate snow covered landscape
where strong winds blast the rock face
with very little vegetation
what could survive in this cold place ?

This is a harsh environment
steep imposing cliffs meet the ground
where habitats give good camouflage
rare snow leopards maybe found

With lush thick white and yellow fur
marked by ringed spots of black on brown
watching all with such light green eyes
planning to bring their next prey down

Snow leopards have beautifully long tails
paws adapted to walk on deep snow
able to ambush unsuspecting prey
by chasing down before the fatal blow

Mostly active between dawn and dusk
this silent big cat that can`t roar
solitary by nature, `til breeding
their survival we must ensure

Sadly these majestic creatures
are becoming such a rare sight
with the loss of their range and hunting
this means they are losing their fight

Internet Friendships

Communicating long distance
can be so hard to bare sometimes
a message is exhilaration
but a let down when there`s no hug
to see your face on the laptop
your eyes light up with affection
to hear your voice is such a joy
wish I could hold you so tight
your friendship means so much to me
feel I can tell you anything
eventually we will meet in person
and find out if this could really work
until then I`ll treasure your kindness
and look forward to your next message.!

New Paths to Walk...

Our time together was precious
our time together was loving
we shared such passionate moments
that can never be taken away
our time has come to an end now
our time has now moved on
for what we has was good
it healed both our hurt
now it`s time for our new journey
to walk a new walk alone
we may not physically touch
we may not see each others eyes
but deep down in our hearts
is where a piece of each other lies
for you`re deep within my heart and soul
with me where ever I travel in life.!

Fairy Flowers     (Hepatica nobilis)


Delicate flowers
so tiny and sweet
pale blue in colour
dancing in the breeze

with tall dark thin stems
swaying so gently
sprinkled with gold dust
from afternoon sun

they`re so beguiling
with their heads held high
petals unfolding
so pleasing to the eye

deep in the woodlands
sweet scent fills the air
as these fairy flowers
bob gently in the sun

Love Stone Stack

Sitting on the beach each summer
I think of you my love
as the Angel came and took you
to be with them above

I look for flat stones on the sand
ones shaped by the ocean
pale pinks and blues are best
smoothed by waters motion

Then looking for a quiet spot
to share our memories
I place one on top another
to the sea`s melodies

Each stone representing a year
that we spent together
every summer I make this stack
to hold your love for ever


Memories help keep the love alive..!

Fire of Love

there`s this fire that
burns inside of you
lighting up your eyes
showing so much desire
fills me with great love
reaching into your soul
hearing your heart beat
pumping through my ears
such vibrant energy
radiates from your aura

there`s great love in your heart
you see good in people
every where you travel
smiles beam across your face
so come dance with me now
lets light up the whole world
run through fields of wheat
or along the sea shore
for nothing can hurt us
only love can be felt here....!

Abandoned Prayers


This old unloved church
that`s stood for many years
no more blessings found
just the angel`s tears

Rows of decaying pews
with damp pealing paint
dark drab furniture
hints of colour so feint

Time has passed on by
faith has lost the day
wooden floors littered
no one left to pray

Moon light streaming through
locked windows behind
the sheer dereliction
plays tricks on the mind

There`s no love left here
for these sad old chairs
as nothing remains
just abandoned prayers

Foot prints in the sand

As the ocean ebbs and flows
frothing with each gentle wave
as the sea licks at the sand
it`s life force to land, it gave

two worlds that come together
where salty water meets sand
yet both can be volatile
flowing liquid, shifting land

from mighty gods up above
moon influencing the sea
tidal events twice a day
move back and forth steadily

what appears terra firma
isn't as sturdy as you think
but are ever shifting sands
and ever close to the brink

walking along the sea`s edge
standing in between two domains
two worlds oh so different
yet land is where man remains

leaving foot prints in the sand
and watch them fade by the sea
walking along the tidal path
listening to the tranquilly....!

The Blast of Steam!!

The sheer thunder
of the roaring beast
pounding of pistons
as if in a rage
huge clouds of steam
billowing black
racing full throttle
along the tracks

screams of the whistle
as it approaches fast
along it`s steel path
through the cold winter morn
lantern shining bright
as it comes into view
puffing and chugging
this relic from the past

snow covers the ground
and the tree are bare
as the black beast steams
to its destination
the sound of its whistle
from the distance, blasts
tells the countryside
this charge of the steam train.!


Long live the Steam Trains....!!!!

To my dearest love.......

I can`t believe
it`s been this long
since that wonderful day
we said our vows
thirty one years
to be exact
standing there together
at the church altar
knowing that I`d
made the right choice

you looked so handsome
in your new blue suit
standing next to me
I, in my white dress
which had taken
many hours to sew
what a glorious
couple we made

clutching my bouquet
and saying the words
you smiled at me
and suddenly I'm floating
happy to be with you
as we walk down the nave
and out of the church
husband and wife!

now as I sit here
all those years on
thinking of you
up on high in heaven
missing you greatly
as I carry on without you
for one day I know
I will be joining you too

So on this day
thirty one years later
looking at your photo
I want to wish you
a happy anniversary
my dear husband, Steve..x

Pure destruction....

caught in this trap
suffocating badly
no where to turn to
at this time of need

wanting to escape
this loneliness here
tightness gripping me
no one to take heed

my heart is pounding
from this great anger
why did you hurt me
with this terrible deed ?

once I thought you good
someone I could love
but all I see are lies
you acted so unjust

scarred for a life time
a badge of pain I wear
for all eternity
my soul turned to dust

for you've blown my mind
set me on this path
never to return
for there is no trust

utter destruction
strong desire to go
leave the earthy hell
where I've no free will

let me be,    I pray
you can`t hurt my now
I'm numb from all this
you've shown your skill

you ripped out my heart
and stripped it of life
never to know hope
my soul you did kill
