Silent Keys

abandoned petals
across the key board
a rose but a memory
and frozen in time

a silence moment
where love was once found
red on white ivory
never to be heard again !

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 !

Question for Love

He says he loves me
but all I feel is hurt
with tender kisses given
but pain in his eyes
am I misreading him
is this just what I want and need
a kind gesture, a helping hand
but is this really love anymore ?

I yearn to be with him
but I'm told he's wrong for me
his aggression and language 
yet to me, he is my prince
there are days when he disappears
and all I get is one text
I feel my heart would break
will he return to me once again ?

Love can be so painful
yet so very rewarding too
moments of joy outweigh the hurt
to be in his arms and all's well
so may I find the strength
to look directly into his eyes
for then I'll see deep into his soul
and finally know where I stand ..... !

Bright mysterious moon
shining through the trees
reflected in the clouds
glistening no the breeze

branches like fingers
dancing in the light
as the moon rides its orbit
until the morning light

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

The Mad Hatter`s tea party
with cakes and icecream
lots of games and laughter
causing quite a scream

door mouse is hiding
amongst many tea pots
while March Hare's looking smart 
and The Hatter's chatting lots

with fancy hats and presents
we`re here to have some fun
sharing tasty pots of tea
around the table in the sun

Ocean `s Stars

Moon light
shimmers over
a dancing ocean
with the currents
leaving a trail
on the
undulating surface
of sparkling stars
heaven`s wonders
lightly skipping
through the waves
up the world
with love......

Funny Old World 

This world we live in, is a funny place
far to complicated for me, you know
want to see what`s happening in my place ?
then come along, see it all, watch it flow

there have been many people in my world
they come and go through out my life time
some for a day, others for many years
and they don`t always see me in my prime!

you can`t choose your family, just your friends
I've made good ones along the way
remembering all those from my childhood
to the ones I hold dear this present day

its a wonderful, energetic life
some times there's sadness but lots of laughter too
and all the love I need around me, so
I`m blessed with happiness because I have you!

Life doesn't need to be made up of headliners or action, but good friends, close family and happiness and love.

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.!

Sleeping Swan

On this crisp sunny morning
just as the mist clears away
a sleepy swan slowly wakes
marking the start of her day

nveloped in her white wings
protected from the cold night
an orange beak peeping through
this bird is an awesome sight

black beady eye watching
so aware of life around
waiting for the time to swim
as she moves without a sound

aising its head to the sky
stretching her wings out wide
slipping into the waters
no more need to sleep and hide

Swans are graceful and very beautiful birds,  pairing up for life  elegantly swimming across the lakes.

Dreams are like angels
they keep bad feelings at bay
floating through white clouds
til the break of day

I am .....

I am not a child
speak to me politely
screaming doesn`t work
so don`t shout at me

I am not a maid
to serve you every day
I`ll help, if you ask
that is the best way

I am your mother
treat me with care
show that you love me
for I have much to share !
