Calmness

The feeling of calmness
washes over this raging sea
cooling down the anger
that dwell deep within me

slowly the colours that I see
change from fiery reds to green
blues and creams follow on
a gentler ocean can be seen

sunshine breaks through the clouds
an air of peace felt all around
stormy weather has passed on by
a soft stillness calms abound

song birds heard over head
along with the oceans flow
watery motions mesmerize
as the tides come and go

let this calmness wash over
cooling all stress and strain
you must live for the moment
let love and happiness reign

Natures Music

Lyrical notes
dancing through the flowers
skipping over green grass
in and out of sunshine
filling my garden with sound ......

Love's Journey...


To be loved is my desire
explore a deep relationship
feel strong arms wrapped around me
a tender yet passionate kiss
to walk hand in hand through life......!

When Witches Sleep......

When all is said and done
and the wicked witch had spoken
the children can come out to play
for the rules may now be broken

bright fairy lights are shining
so with a wink the fun can begin
the darkness went when that witch left
so its smiles and laughter all round

as the moon lights up the sky
fun and happiness abound
for the party is in full swing
so let the witch sleep on.....!

Left behind......


with all this death and destruction
that follows me around
ripping away my loved ones
its so hard for the ones left behind
why oh why won`t you take me too ??

A poem to wish my father in law a Happy birthday
Love and miss him so much.

Happy Birthday Sid
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Though you may not be with us
you're not forgotten in any way
for now you rest in peace
with the angels, on your special day

so on this special birthday
we remember our love for you
all your kindness, fun and laughter
will remain with us our whole life through

you were so full of energy
hope, joy, and not a drop of doubt
spending time with all your grand kids
for you never left anyone out

as we remember you dear Sid
on this, your very special day
we all come together and toast
a wonderful man, Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday Sid !

Pools of Light

Through bright rays of sun
streaming down on me
leaving pools of coloured light
creating patterns all around
a kaleidoscope of sunshine
ever changing through the day
contrasts from light to dark
felt while walking past..

Time is an illusion....

Writing out my life
with scribblings on paper
so hard to establish
all the important parts

a life time of memories
written through my pen
ink over parchment
for time ticks on by

for time is an illusion
constantly ticking 
 hands following numbers
I`m watching time flow

exploring all that`s past
remembering events
chains linking everything
pen, paper and time !

This is a commission I did using a photo of the customer's cats
Very pleased with the outcome !





Feline Friends

Dirty foot prints across my work top
Neatly stacked papers knocked to the ground
A whisker lies there on the pillow
There has to be a cat some where around

Hear a jingling of a tiny bell
The soft meow from inside a box
Or a padding of paws across the boards
Purring as steady as the house clocks

Crashing of a vase that`s been knocked over
To the howling under the moon at night
Our feline friends are part of the family
Snuggled up asleep, so every thing`s alright




I am the servant for two wonderful cats!!

Mysterious Tranquility


standing by the waters edge
watching the clouds reflected
touched by the mystery
just feeling so connected

landscape mirrored on the surface
reflecting every rock and tree
opening your soul`s window
creating tranquility

silence is broken by a screech
and a fluttering of feathers
as an eagle swoops over
disappearing into the heathers

waters cold upon my feet
rippling over my skin
as I stand in the shallows
fighting the urge to step in

this place is full of mystery
mirroring your inner peace
nature at its purest
full of contentment and grace.

Summer......

drifting across an ocean high
fluffy cotton shrouds
like rippling white waves
bobbing close by
to an orb so warm
shining so strong
casting shadows that reflect
the light of the heavens

There's a servant who wishes
to hand in their resignation
from their prison
and walk into the sunset
one last time...!

What will be.......

to lay here in this dark room
not knowing where I stand
for all love has left this place
I can`t complete your demand

though my heart is breaking
tears silently run down my face
I always wanted to love you
instead I bring only disgrace

the kindness that you showed me
is something I must preserve
all I ask is your mercy
not sure that`s what I deserve

so as I lay here in despair
not knowing my destiny
feeling my future slipping away
holding on to your memory.

Warmth of Summer

Still in the summer haze
whimsical clouds up night
wafting past the afternoon
leaving trails across the sky

dotted along the horizon
cherry blossom is seen
bright colorful foliage
explosions of vivid green

an air of expectation
can be felt all around
Mother Earth is waking up
new beginning to be found

chirpy birds on the wing
croaking frogs in the garden pond
and skittish cats chasing flies
summer fun watching all respond

sat listening to all the sounds
soaking up the warmth of day
hard winters are in the past
summer time is here to stay!!

Opening up my Soul


With all that goes on in the world
I have to close my eyes
so that my soul can open

Snoozing Cat  Sleep on


Soft fur slowly moving
as breathing contently
warm in the sunshine
feline resting quietly

ears always alert
breeze gently blowing
grass swaying to and fro
birds soaring on the wing

bees buzzing nearby
a splash of a tail
from the fish in the pond
 sticky trail of a snail!

still the feline sleeps on
alert to every thing
the day draws to an end
birds with their song to sing

all is as it should be
why cause any movement?
so relaxed, so happy
feline so content.

Weeping Soul

my soul weeps so much
for death called today
in the form of an angel
and quietly took you away

touched you so lightly
and gave you your wings
then slowly off you flew
to join the heavenly kings

it`s hard for the ones
that are left behind
to continue on living
with you on my mind

my world ripped open
all has fallen apart
as I mourn your loss
with my broken heart

rest now with the angels
for you have been set free
and from your vantage point
please watch over me

Spring is in the air!

Look to the future
smile and you will see
that every is waking up
and life is full of glee

winter time is over
there's so much to be done
be out in the sun shine
smile and have some fun

joy to behold again
children's laughter is heard
they're racing round the garden
chasing butterflies, how absurd!

skipping through the grasses
splashing in the puddles
cats prowling and dogs barking
we're smiling cos mum's in a muddle!

sunshine in their eyes
a spring in their pace
full of the joys of spring
bright smile upon their face

the thrills of the season
will bring you loads of fun
with laughter and sunshine
peace and love to everyone!

Mother and Child...!

A mother is....

the center of my world
gave you life and love
taught you how to be me
smiles when you`re happy
cuddles you when you`re troubled
teaches you how the world works
stands back so you can stand tall...!



A child is....

the center of a mother's world
given life through happiness
cuddles and respect all round
taught all life's skills
learns what's right and wrong
explores their surroundings
stands tall through a mother's love...!

Delicate Beauty

Fluttering through the shadows
 wings caught in the light
a glimpse of colours seen
almost transparent in flight

Delicate creatures are found
butterflies seen on the breeze
beauty within this harsh land
silent movement amongst the trees

Walk with me.....

numbed heart
torn in two
so many tears
from losing you

our direction
has lost its way
my whole world
gone that day

the road I walk
is unsteady
to travel alone
as I'm not ready

need you so
but you're not there
to much sorrow
I just can't bear

though you're not here
I see your light
a new star shines
in the sky tonight

watch over me
as I walk on
sing with me
our unique song

hold me together
now we're apart
wrap your wings
around my heart!

We`re going on a treasure hunt
there`s excitement in the air
what wonders will we find today
let's go searching with some flair

Stalking round the car boot sale
hunting an elusive bargain
rummaging through all the stalls
bamboozled by the jargon

With the these in their lines
punters swarm over them all
hidden treasure to be found
from trinket to to bowling ball!

The thrill of the hunt is on
once seen the haggling begins
to an fro the banter goes
in the end the hunter wins!

For the best bargains to get
we're up early on a Sunday
find up in a hall or field
it's carbooting all the way!

Frogs Eyes...

Two big eyes just visible
Breaking the surface with ease
Blinking in the bright sun shine
Just floating, if you please!

A sudden noise and down they drop
Back into the depths of the pond
A ripple on the water
Shows us how they did respond

As the water settles again
You`re left there to ponder on
For where there were two eyes,  now
A croak, a splash and they`re gone

Chocolate Trophies

Chocolate bunnies and Easter eggs
filling the store shelves and our heads
brightly coloured and so inviting
these excitingly awesome spreads

there`s different surprises to behold
eyes open wide with the promise of fun
what will be inside these sweet eggs
kids can`t wait for the day to come

and on the morning they rush down stairs
to find their trophies of the day
with cardboard boxes all discarded
it`s chocolate heaven all the way.!

Happy Easter everyone!

Silence felt in the morning
As a shaft of slanting light
Falls across my sleeping cat
Who as slept here through the night

Secure in the knowledge she`s safe
Rays of sun warming up her fur
As she stretches out her long limbs
Settling down with a throaty purr

Within this shaft the dust dances
like it's suspended in mid air
Almost as if a torch shines down
Upon my bed then on my chair

Watching the bright slant of light
Slowly creeping across our world
As time moves gradually by
She remains stretched,  her tail curled

As the sun rises higher
This beaming slant of light moves on
Along with my dozing feline
Until it`s at its peak and gone
