   Sweet Aromas        

      sweet     
                aroma     
   warm invite  
         from the cold
   frozen winter
cold hands           
fire roaring
         curled up snug  
cuddling my cup      
       of hot coffee
all topped with cream
with sprinkles, so tasty
nibbling  on  chocolate
in the warmth  of a fire
so shut out winter
wrapped up in a 
cosy blanket
with a crumbly cookie is
most welcome!

Blacksmithing is an amazing skill that`s been around for hundreds of year.
making hand forged items from steel with hammer on anvil heated by their forge!



The Blacksmith

Fire, steel, rivets and hammer
dust, noise, red hot metal
anvil, tongs and sheer power
the blacksmith has it all

forge fired up and ready
with tools all standing by
leather apron now in place
anticipation is high

arc of sparks from the grinder
flash across the workshop
powering on through the day
working hard until you drop

hammer clashes down on metal
an air of expectation
as slowly the piece is formed
stand back and see his creation

Love is                     patient
love is kind               and gentle
it does not boast        or hurt anyone
love is not proud or rude love is not self 
seeking or keeps records of wrong doings
it`s tender and caring building memories
 together. Love is not blind, but sees all 
 that is true. Love is an unconditional 
commitment.  Love is a decision,
strong feeling a judgement.
Love is  a  promise to
honour each other
so  for eternity
I know I will
always
love

Jack O`Lantern

round face
orange face
staring out at me
carved face
lit face
shining out at me
gruesome face
bright eyes
candles lit to see
scary face
pumpkin face
my Jack O`Lantern be

I love autumn, all the bright colours on thee trees and fruit ripening, harvest time!!
The Winter is just around the corner followed by Christmas....yeah!!!



 Start of Autumn

September rumblings
autumn`s now on its way
the warmth has left the sun
cold blue skies here to stay

weather`s unpredictable
but that's how I like it
maybe we`ll have snow soon
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 winter warnings

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

September`s a great month
marks a change in the year
for earth start to sleep
as winter will be here..
