  Families,,,,,,,, 
  are circles of love ever growing 
  for every joy shared increases the love.
  every hardship faced together 
  makes each circle stronger....!

 Emotional Pen...!

Weariness has engulfed my pen
through the many emotions of this day
now the need to rest is so strong
for passion has flowed just like ink
swirling and dancing across the pages of time...!

Me, my mobile and I

me, my mobile and I
an office and music center
data and telephone numbers
memories to remember

me, my mobile and I
storing photos in time
snap shots of a moment
if lost, would be a crime

me, my mobile and I
allowing calls everywhere
friends around the world
chatting without a care

                                                 me, my mobile and I
                                                 we`re never far apart
                                                 for me, my mobile and I
                                                 I love with all my heart

Rainbow Bear

if you go down to the the shop today
I wonder what you will find in there
many items hand made just for you
gifts to buy in Celebration Fairs

is Rainbow lurking behind a card
sat on a shelf, where will he be found 
which Crafter is hiding him today
come in and have a look around

Rainbow`s a cheeky little bear
and he loves playing a trick or too
but what he like to see best of all
a smiling face as you walk through the door

© Lissie Bull 2015



Rainbow Bear now lives at Celebration Fairs and can be found exploring the different craft areas. Why not visit the shop in Thornbury and see if you can find him.

My Battered Laptop !

My battered laptop sits in front of me
my communication across the net
this world is now a smaller place to be
as I chat to my new friends I have met

Emails, letters, Facebook and so much more
chatting with friends from around the world
even do my shopping in an online store
watch the universe as it`s unfurled

my laptop helps me store my photographs
and safe to access them from just one place
sadly its not so good with autographs
hey I only have a limited space!

I'm even writing my poetry here 
as I'm sat at my old key board today
seeing the words forming, gives me much cheer
the poem comes together in its own way

I couldn't cope without my old laptop
for work I depend on it to get me through
but I still meet my friends down the coffee shop
and its doesn't beat a girls night out too!

Laptops are good for storing, working and games, but going out with friends and family is always better.....

  Lazy Sundays

  Shhh its Sunday...a day of rest
  chill and relaxation is the best
  hot coffee while reading the paper
  quiet moments that we need to savour
  wafting aromas of a Sunday roast
  then maybe a stroll along the coast
  evenings in front of a roaring fire
  counting the days until we retire
  soft gentle memories remain so clear
  of lazy Sundays that are so dear

Scars..!

Scars are like battle wounds,
thrilling in a way
they show how strong you were,
on that victorious day
standing up against the world,
for what you believed in
rising above the oppressers,
along side your brethren
so wear your scars with pride,
don't hide in the shadows
hold your head up high,
and live for your tomorrows!

Another Business "name" poem...!










Wicked Aromaz

Wonderfully scented melts
Incredible creations to smell
Candles for all occasions
Knowledgeably handcrafted
Ever eager to create many
Delicious aromas to try

Adventurous entrepreneur
Radiating confidence
Opulent teacups and sundaes
Monkey Farts to Blueberries
Aromatic perfection
Zesty wickedness all round




© Lissie Bull 2015


Emotions are deeply set within us
they`re an intrinsic part of who we are
we can be brought done by their negatives
looking for positives is the best way by far

our aura shines so brightly around us
an emotional beam that`s all seeing
touching people we know and meet each day
helping us feel connected to our well being

a smile can lighten up everyone's face
raise you up high, give`s you that awesome glow
and even put a spring into your pace
follow your heart, let your emotions show

                       Watching the sun pierce the morning mist
                            with steaming coffee to warm me up
                       coaxing the coloured ink of my pen to flow
                       releasing images held deep within my soul
                    to paint new pictures to share with the world..!

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

Cancerous Pain

I loved you so much
thought we'd be together
for ever and a day
but oh man...
cancer came and took you
stripped you of life
and sent out far away

God..... it's so unfair
for our love was strong
you battled on as best you could
for what seemed too long
you never complained once..!

Sadly you lost your fight
so the angels came and took you
hand in hand towards the light
free from all pain and misery...
it's hard for the ones left behind

Miss you so much!

Me, My Mobile and I.....!
Add caption

My mobile phone`s my office
it goes with me everywhere
with diary, text and numbers
I`m lost if it`s not there

my family and friends                
their details I have stored
with internet and google
all this info I can horde

I love it`s little camera
capturing everything I see
for my mobile very clever
stores it all in it`s memory

I have a tune for every one        
so I know who`s calling me        
they also have a picture to        
much easier for me to see !

I love my little mobile office
there`s always something new to try
so I`ll keep it in my pocket
for it`s... me, my mobile and I

                                                         Emotions

                                             love is a complicated emotion
                                                      stirring the passions in the soul
                                                           as the heart leaps over hurdles
                                                 just to reach the source of these feelings
                                                                 for staying together
                                                                      is the best out come....!

Starting of Autumn

september comes creeping in
for autumn`s on its way
the warmth has left the sun
cold blue skies are here to stay

weather`s unpredictable
but that's just how I like it
maybe we`ll have snow this year
for it strengthens the spirit!

bright colours on the trees
they`re changing their attire
orange, reds and yellows
summer can now retire

it`s like another world
low lying misty mornings
everything is shrouded
sending us winter warnings

crunchiness under foot
and a bite in the air
wrap up now and stay warm
it`s time to take good care

septe is a great month
marking a change in the year
as Mother Earth starts to sleep
winter season will soon be here..

This poem was written for a competition and wasn't an easy subject but I feel this poem works well!
What do you think? 


I Survived.!

I am a daughter, sister, wife and mother
not a servant, skivvy or a punch bag
for I have emotions, feelings and a heart
I`m a human being and not here to brag

for we came together through our passion
wanting to build a better life as a team
but sadly this haven didn`t last long
as behind closed doors I was left to scream

then I learnt to wear my makeup thicker
to hide the bruises that were rained down on me
outside the house, I held my head up high
I was the matriarch of my family

whatever was done to me...I would survive
finding the help needed I would have my day
I would come through all this hell in the end
just had to find the courage to walk away

domestic violence is found behind closed doors
I`m so glad I managed to work out just how
to start to rebuild my life once again
I am at peace with my family now

sadly domestic violence is still here
but with help and support, we can open the door!
I am glad I managed to work out just how
to start to rebuild my life and smile more

                                  Weekends...!
 
      Friday has come and gone, the weekend now beckons
                    a time of peace and relaxation
                               lazy morning with paper and coffee
                  lunch with friends, then down the pub
         not forgetting the Sunday roast with all the family
               my weekends are the best days of the week ...!

                          We will remember them.!





            This poem comes mounted and cost £8.00 plus p+p
   For each poem sold £2.00 will be donated to the Poppy Appeal.



 What the hell !

Why is it that when I try hard..it fails
maybe it`s me, I`m just bad
I want to help someone is need
but end up making both of us sad
saying the wrong thing at the wrong time
seems to make everything worse
so I`m left here to ponder
the only way I know, in verse!
whether I should just give up
would that make things more clear
I have many questions to ask
but sadly no answers appear
I`m a daughter, wife, mother, sister
jack of all trades, master of none
yet all I feel in this world, is alone
for others are having all the fun !
think the lesson in this it would seem
is to back off and not have a care
and tell the world to leave me alone
because all it offers me,  is despair !

Lest We Forget.....


We`re all here to join the cause
and wear our poppies with pride
respecting all the forces
honoured to stand by their side

remembering all the fallen
from the battles that have been
through the war torn countries
brave men and women have seen

we should be so thankful
respect those that have heard the call
and took up arms to bring us peace
freeing us from much peril

for all the men and women
who fought for us and sadly fell
we honour them and give thanks
to every forces personnel


We will remember them ........

Waking up to bright sun rays
brings a smile to my heart
for its a new beginning, new adventures
let my open record my memories
to fill my old age with love

Dawn...!

Dawn is the awakening of the soul
birds singing their hearts out to impress
the sun peeping over the horizon
filling skies with an array of colours
from yellows, oranges through to reds
for dawn erupts into our day
snuffing out the darkness of night
bathing the landscape in warm light
as the world begins to wake up
a great start to a brand new day
this wakes both mind and body
refreshes us from deep within
may there be many more to see
this dawn that awakens my soul..!

Words for tomorrow...

laying down my weary pen after it's danced today
creating pictures from deep within my soul
colours splashed in sentences full of emotions
setting free passions from my heart
poetry for the reader to enjoy tomorrow..!

His Love.....

To feel the warmth of his touch
tender kisses across my skin
his soft breath like a feather
sending my soul into a spin

hand in hand he guides me along
walking as if floating on air
stride for stride, where will we  go
for I `d follow him anywhere

his voice whispers in my ear
painting pictures of emotion
from deep within his loving heart
like murmurs from the ocean

remembering the emotions of each event

never wanting them to be forgotten
I'll hold all these within my heart...!

Playful Angels


Oops my halo`s slipped again
I mustn't take it off to play
Maybe I shouldn't remove it at all
An Angel`s image is to stay and pray

I have this desire to skip and jump
Hate being the silent helper too
Want to sing and make daisy chains
Why can`t I dance and play with you?

The Archangels calmly tell me off
They say I should be more demure
Respectful of the old traditions
But making children smile is best for sure

I`m sorry I get it all wrong
Maybe one day I`ll live and learn
But until then we`ll have some fun
Please give me a chance, don`t be too stern!


I was having a joke with my son about "slipping halos" and it got me thinking
This poem is the result, hope you like it...

Night......!


Silence of the night fill me with peace
twinkling stars in a dark sky so relaxing
with sounds of nature all around
that tells me I'm not alone
so let the night take me where it wants........

A Lazy Start....!

As the morning sun creeps across my wall
leaving a trail of bright light along its way
slowly opening my eyes on the world
watching the colourful start to the day

my cat stretches out in the warm rays
purring contently as I stroke her head
her fur is static and soft to the touch
as she snoozes on the end of my bed

so cosy and snug here under my duvet
do I really have to get out of bed now?
want to watch the sun move round a bit more
no need to rush, I`l just take it nice and slow.

Cuddles in Bed


There is a warm feeling in my heart
as I watch you beside me sleeping
with your face so peaceful there
wonder what secrets you are keeping


Your eyes flicker with your dreams
I'm curious to know, so take care!
offering you a penny for those thoughts
as I softly stroke your hair


Hearing your steady breathing
snoozing away so gently
I love to see you so relaxed
as you lay there contently


The warmth that you generate
soothing away my aches and pains
thus easing us both into deep sleep
releasing all the days strains


Drifting off into peaceful slumber
wrapped up in your arms so strong
safe in the knowledge that you are there
protecting and loving me all night long




Cuddles aids a great night of dreaming.....

Holding onto love

I love to hold on to memories
hold them in my heart
running together through coloured meadows
sat in the garden in summer twilight
giggles and pillow fights
long snuggled up duvet days
these are the riches I hold so dear
making me smile when I think of you...!

Bitterness

to speak to me with forked tongue
spitting venom across my soul
stabbed through this beating heart
for all this hatred takes its toll

with sheer anger in your eyes
what shone within, there's now darkness
joy has been harshly torn away
an empty shell oh so heartless

no love found within your soul
only bitterness seems to stay
silence where once was laughter
it has all but drained away


© Lissie Bull 2015







                   





                        May you walk with strength and pride

                              feel passion in your soul

            sunlight on your face

                                  and love in your heart

                          to guide you on your path through life

Remembering each life
Engraved on our hearts
Destined for glory

Our Soldiers fought for freedom
Peace was won so valiantly
Proud of each and every one
Year on year, we remember them.

Angel

Soft coloured hues
these tender feathers
gentle touches
as they flutter by
caressing my skin
in a warm embrace
empowering love
through strong wings
hints of passion
among the clouds
white silk cloth
brushes past me
protection offered
lovingly given
from heaven sent
my angel`s here...!

Sleeping Cat


I see a sleeping cat 
at the end of my bed
shaped like a crescent moon, 
what dreams in her head?

with legs stretched out 
and her tail curled round
she almost looks dead 
because she makes no sound

if you look carefully 
her breathe is very slow
such a little minx 
but I love her so

ears pricked up sharp 
as she lays at rest
looks so content 
if poked she would protest !

looks so tranquil there
but she knows what`s going on
don`t let her fool you
she thinks it`s so much fun

I see a snoozing cat 
who`s watchful of the day
peacefully sleeping
but alert in every way !

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 !


© Lissie Bull 2015




    Passionate words
On paper to see
            Expressions of the soul
     That's just from me
      Read from my heart
      You then set me free

as pictures from my soul slowly come to life

Good Night
Sweet Dreams


As the stars come out to shine
I wearily climb the stairs to bed
though my body is tired right now
my mind can`t wait to dream
so I`ll wish you all a Good Night...!
