A little floating family
gliding across the lake
four sweet bundles of fluff
paddling in mum`s wake

 proud parents lead the way
showing off their new brood
parading their cute family
while they forage for food

gorgeous family of goslings
all swimming in a line
ready to take on the world
but grow up first, will be fine!

Words are always around us
the building blocks to our world
instructions, stories and records 
all this vocabulary unfurled

love, learning, power and joy
communication is the key
expressions of the way we feel
allowing you to talk to me !

words flow freely from deep within
for each letter plays it`s part
filling our world with descriptions
and painting pictures for the heart

happy words, encouraging words
some for every occasion
loving, coaxing or emotional 
words for celebration.

sadly there are hurtful words
that can break a person`s heart
sad words, painful words
that tear many people apart !

 words can be felt, spoken and read
creating pictures for all to see
creating memories to treasure
so choose your words carefully

A Simple Smile

It's a simple thing really
a curve between two points
that lights up your eyes
and loosens up the joints !

capturing the moment
is the order if the day
creating happy vibes
in each and every good way !

Power of the forge

red hot twisted metal
emerges from the fire
with hammer on anvil,
creating through desire

returning to the heat
while stoking up a storm
followed by rhythmic beating
hot metal will transform

the forge is filled with noise
heat, dust and vitality
this raw power over steel
sheer force and brutality

mastering of the hard steel
is a feat in its own right
the sheer power it instils
you just know you`ll win this fight.

A pane of glass
crystal clear
eye on the world
or maybe my back garden
watching me cat
pawing at the glass
is this a mirror...
confusing to animal
can be quite old
flat and smooth
yet lean and mean
protection for the elements
keeps the cold out
shelter from the sun
lighting up my world
the beauty of a window pane !

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

To the love of my life

Remembering our special day
the vows we made together
sharing all our memories
we`ll  hold in our hearts for ever

to always know that we were right
our unbeatable bond is so strong
as we build our lives side by side
we have found where we belong

as we celebrate our special day
give a cheer for married life
we`ll raise a glass of champagne 
as we continue as husband and wife

Touching a Soul

When you touch someone
with a loving spirit
they touch your soul
with their deep heart
for there is nothing better
on this earth
than a giving person
who knows your worth
as we live each day
may we make a difference
and touch a soul
each and every day
bringing smiles and laughter
to many a needy soul

Love, peace and happiness !

Spring Tranquility

Yellow trumpets blowing in the breeze
red cups pointing upwards to the sky
with tall grasses swaying in-between
standing so proud, no need to be shy

speckled sun light filters through the trees
leaving dappled patterns on the ground
the air`s filled with the scent of flowers
nature`s harmony is all around

this world of forest green and flowers
that mesmerize you in every way
such tranquility and peacefulness
a great place to sit, relax and stay

It has been such a wonderful day, spring has arrived and the sun is out and there`s warm in the air.  Flowers every where.  I just feel like sitting down and relaxing out in this sun.
