 Old Saint Nick

On this cold Christmas Eve
with children tucked up in bed
 old Saint Nick and his reindeer 
flies across the sky on his sled 

he leaves a gift in each house
for every good girl and boy
bringing much festive cheer
letting us share Christmas joy!

Daft side of Christmas

It must be Christmas time again
the latest toys are on the shelves
and the queues are getting longer
Santa`s lucky, he has his elves

battling through the crowds again
loads of shopping bags to carry
as I`m struggling with the car keys
why can`t I have my own fairy?

fought hard to put the tree up
untangled many miles of lights
wrapped presents sit under the tree now
promising many joys and delights

mistletoe hangs over the door
to catch the unsuspecting man
carols played on the radio
as some snores are heard from nan

a jumble of cards on the mantle
turkey`s nicely cooking away
the family`s crammed altogether
as we celebrate Christmas Day !

Merry Christmas !

Joys of Christmas

Reindeer dash across the sky
this snowy festive night
creating magic as they go
it's such an awesome sight

Hear the jingling of the bells
on Santa`s laden sleigh
bringing to all the children
the joys of Christmas day

    My Home

What I
love most
about our house
are the many
wonderful people
I share it with …!

                                    Christmas Eve                                 

    On Christmas Eve, 
   the reindeer fly
    pulling Santa 
    across the sky
    sprinkled star dust
      to guide the sleigh
     and help them all 
    along their way

 Autumn to Winter

Autumn`s golden hues
red and orange and yellow
trees alight with bright colours
carpets of leaves covering the ground
being splashed around by
wellington booted children
clad in scarves, hat and mitts,
puffing clouds of steam
as they race around the park.

the trees are looking bare
now they`ve lost their summer coats
but here and there a holly tree
defiant in its green
squirrels red and grey alike
stocking up their larders
to see the winter through.

darker now the evenings
and colder all around
people hurrying to get home
to warm their weary bones

the grass is crunchier underfoot
Jack frost has danced around
he leaves the park all muffled
impressions of black and white.
Winter has crept in
through the gap in Autumns door
and caught us all unaware
until it shouts...BOO !!!!!!

    Wintry Bite...

      Seeing my own breathe in the air
      on a bitterly cold winter morning
      heavy crunch of snow under foot
      as the sky dances with the dawning

      all bundled up in hat and scarf
      as I set off on my mission
      trudging through this windy day
      I head to my destination

      trees all bare after summer
      thin naked twigs that make no sound
      whistling winds pass by my ear
      and foot prints that mark the ground

      this coldness bites at my skin
      so reaching home, a strong desire
      then feeling the comfort of my home
      can`t wait to warm up by the fire

No strength to cope

This is why I dislike you
your relationship impacts on me
no respite from your input
hear your voice where ever I go

wish I had the strength to argue
and to stand up for myself
but all I do is walk away
hide from you and weep

I wish I could change this
hope you would understand
I feel powerless to cope
not gaining a daughter I'm losing a son !

 Fulfilled Life

 May you find your true path through life
          discover friends to join your along the way
                 happiness throughout your journey
        health, wealth and an honest heart
                         along with hopes for a fulfilling life !

Jack Frost might freeze my ink
numb my fingers
so I can't write
but through the warmth of my heart
my pen will flow with passion.....

       Stirred Passions 

      Stress so powerful creates tension
      affects the emotions of my troubled soul
      images to painful for me to paint
      stirring passions too dark to express
      as my heart weeps for better times...!

             Muffled Wonderland

            Waking up to a crisp white world
            with clear blue skies over head
            muffling the sounds of our lives
            nature wrapped up in its snowy bed

            tiny paw prints seen over the land
            from scurrying creatures homeward bound
            while a Robin chirps from the garden wall
            wonder where his next meal will be found

            icicles hanging down from  branches
            sparkling in the cold winter's light
            a strange scene that's frozen in time
            creating a wonderland so bright

            stillness felt that calms the soul
            delicate snowflakes like patterned lace
            as sun glistens across the landscape
            peace is experienced within this place

Young Love !

Young love
such passion
energy abound

A tender kiss
touching hands
hidden gesture
love understands

Cheeky laughter
twinkle of the eye
the smile says it all
love will never die

Passions develop from small beginnings....

      Hot Chocolate and Cats

      Curled up on my sofa
      a bundle of fur breathing steadily
      as she sleeps deeply on my lap
      head buried under her paw, enjoying her dream
      while I chill with my mug of hot chocolate..!
      best way to end a day of painting pictures from my heart.

As I lay my pen down for today
after the ink has ceased to flow
recalling the words I use to paint
the pictures from deep within my soul
leaving me feeling so peaceful from my writings...!

I feel the call to lay my pen down
and surrender my writing to the night
allowing my dreams to take over
and paint pictures through emotions
for in the morn, I may write what I feel..!

Our Friendship.

Friendships are so important
they're there to help us through life
a shoulder to cry on in need
when happiness turns to strife

our inner secrets to share
a laugh, a giggle or a scream
it doesn't matter as they're always there
for we really make quite a team

the daft things we get up to
can be hard to believe
all the teasing and we pull
another trick up our sleeve

all those outingss that we go on
never knowing where it will end
off to local shopping centre
we tell everyone, we won't spend !

may there be many more adventures
visiting great places then coffee and a rest
we know what each other is thinking
our friendship is just the best !!

In Memory of my Special Mum

Upon this November morn
standing humbly before your grave
my heart`s missing a piece of love
a hug from you is all I crave

sadly the angels called for you
and now you guide me from above
as I travel along my path
filled with your wonderful love

Mothers are special people
with memories we hold forever
they`re like bright coloured buttons
that keep families together

so today I bring you flowers
and this little poem to say
thank you for all you did for me
everyday`s now a special day

Happy Wedding Anniversary Mum

Love and miss you always

   xXx  xXx

Nights getting colder for winter sets in
and as the ink in my pen struggles to flow
I find myself hugging a frothy hot chocolate
while painting pictures in my mind
ready to start writing poetry in the morning

Red Steel Poppies

Tough hard unyielding steel
the raw ingredient here
to be used to great effect
where beauty can appear

roaring forge is heating
the steel is now red hot...
then hammered into shape
on anvil with great thought

all parts are formed and ready
assembly can now take place
for rare beauty can be seem
a steel creation to embrace

now the finishing touches
each one a different copy
red flower and shiny stem
our Remembrance Poppy

Winter Warmth

Swirls of steam
sweet aroma 
warm invite
from the cold
frozen winter
cold hands
fire roaring
curled up snug
cuddling my cup
of hot coffee
topped with cream
and sprinkles
so tasty
and nibbling 
on chocolate
in the warmth...
shut out winter
all wrapped up
by the fire
another chocolate
is most welcome!

But now I feel like hot pokers  stabbing me,  as I walk across hot coals

Blisters open , soars bleeding

No help offered to guide me

I am a lonely figure walking through the embers crying...........

Fireworks Party!

The thrill of the night is running high
bonfire`s pile up and ready to light

please Mr Weather Man, don`t let it rain
we`re all wrapped up warm on this festive night

a buzz in the air as the fireworks are lit
so many whooshes and bangs through the air

sky lit by a kaleidoscope of colours
as there`s a succession of fancy flares

flames from the fire warm us up where we stand
each and everyone`s face is set aglow

as heads tilted up to watch the display
mesmerizing us, `til it`s time to go

Bonfire Night is  a colourful night with all the rockets, flares and sparklers, but we must all remember to be safe and look after our pets too.  Have a great Night

Feel so alone, an orphan set adrift on a sea teeming with hate

No sail or rudder to guide me

No company to share my woes

I am a solitary figure floating aimlessly, sharks bait........

  Release the soul...

  A wounded soul left in the darkness
  bound by cruel cold chains there
  trapped emotions that need to be set free
  sorrows that rip through the heart
  as it screams for freedom ......let me be!!
  escaping from this dark place is all that matters !

Fireside Hugs

Watching the roaring hot fire
glowing embers from within
crackling as the logs burn
feeling the warmth on our skin

snuggled up on the couch
glass of wine that tastes divine
leaning into your body
looking at you with a sign

surrendering unto you
melting into your arms
mesmerized by the flames
as I fall for your charms

the fire starts to die down
we cuddle under the rug
sipping wine as we watch
laid there wrapped in a hug

as evening comes to an end
you hold me `til I sleep
nestled warm under the fur
I`m safely in your keep

Red Poppy

Remembering each life
Engraved on our hearts
Destined for glory

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