Through the mists of time
shrouded from vision
objects seem strange
slowly they`re revealed
grey structures forming
as we move forward
stronger shapes appear
things become more solid
from out of the fog
lamps and barricades
emerging into view
towering over us
followed by cold steel
dark and foreboding
this great structure
a gate way across
the unseen waters
with a lone figure
cycles on past
in front of the bridge
such architecture
invites you to use
so through the fog
the river is crossed
to new horizons
never miss a chance
to explore the future ....!

Thunderous Steam

Steaming through the wintry light
powering along steel tracks
puffing out a trail of smoke
travelling along to the max

Chugging past the countryside
as evening begins to set in
billowing clouds of black smoke
with it`s bright lantern shinin`

Storming round this mighty curve
and thundering along the rails
feeling the movement under foot
just showing it`s size and scale

This awesome beast of the steam age
reminds us of times gone by
and to see the trains still working
so pleasing to the soul and eye

The sheer power of this steam train
blasting it`s way over this land
long may this relic from the past
show us that travel can be grand..!

The steam train is a wonderful way to travel...!

Lone Blacksmith

The smell, the power
as the forge is fired up
sparks flashing
coke shifting
as the metal is heated
the rawness of it all
tongs holding red hot metal
hammering,  beating
shaping, heating
until the piece is right
sheer heat and noise
is all around
such a sound
hammer on anvil
the sweat, the muscle

such dedication

creating strong
traditional art
to be a blacksmith !!
enough said!!

Dedicated to my son Jon, and his business "Hammer and Tongs"
So proud of you Jon....!!

Hi everyone

My second poem to be published, " The Hunting Owl " can be found in      " Poetry for all " Published by United Press.
Copies will be available soon.

A big thank you to all my followers for their continues support.


The hunting owl

Two big eyes staring straight at me
Taking everything, in like it knows
The tilt of its head as it listens
Then with silent goes

Powerful legs with sharp talons
Long feathered wings spread out wide
Now in pursuit of its prey, as it
Swoops over the countryside

Without hesitation it strikes
Its prey never knew it was there
As it dives down for the kill
The owl and its prey, the hare!

Watched an owl while on holiday and was amazed at the way it swooped and dived
while catching its prey, very clever creatures.

Red Coated Gentleman

With your red spotted coat
and black head dress
you scamper about
amongst the foliage
scurrying around
on fast little legs
along the flower stems
and across green leaves

a sign of summer
such an awesome sight
to see you balancing
across tiny white buds
light as a feather
then in an instant
you fly up and away
suddenly you`re gone

Why do you do this....?

why do you hurt me
cause me to weep
such salty tears
down my cheek
your disinterest
in all I do
pains me greatly
I don`t feel wanted

for if I have
good news to share
your attention
is directed elsewhere
yet you demand
the world from me
that no one can see

where do I go
from this point in time
feeling so low
after all this pain
will you change
or walk away
confusion reins
what of the future..!

I thought naively
that if we talked
things would maybe improve
instead you just walked

was it a waste of time?
I really felt that was so
where do we go from  here
sadly I do not know

you maybe my child
but have little soul
at least not for me
I just don`t feel whole

a new chapter for you
spreading wide your wings
moving through new adventures
it`s a new song he sings

will I be able
to let you fly away
knowing that I have to
I'm dreading the day

for I know it will come
but I have to be mother
my love for you is strong
but you now love another

so I will wish you well
as a mother can only do
experience your life, child
I will always love you!

Forgiveness !!!

For all the times you've hurt me
yelled at me or made me cry
you have my forgiveness

When you turned and lied to me
constantly shouted abuse
I will forgive you now

The swearing, cursing and pain
drinking and staying out late
these things are regrettable

But the things I can not forgive...
are,  that you deceived me
and then,  you broke my heart!!

Forgiveness is a hard but necessary process we all have to try and go through....
but something can not always be forgiven..!

Spiralling to heaven

to heaven
to the depths
which way is up
which way is down
how do we know
not easy to tell?
frilled patterns
 all the way 
by metal lace
swirls and curls
black against white
along the steps
turning blue
in the light
sheer beauty 
in motion
ever spiralling onwards.

Little Dreamer

Little sleepy head
what do you see
all snuggled up
in the duvet
little nose twitching
as you dream on....!

gentle purrs are heard
as you move your paw
run free in your world
your eyes shut tight
closed against the night
my little dreamer......!

chasing brown mice
through your dreamland
as you race around
while your body sleeps on
so rest now sleepy kitten
my little dreamer.....!

My journey begins.....

The energy that buzzes
flowing through this moment
tingling my senses
heightening my awareness
adrenalin is pumping
and my heart beats faster
excitement in the air
remember this point in time
for now I stand tall
pride running through my veins
for I have everything
and yet I have nothing
the world is my oyster
and so my journey begins
new horizons to reach
new goals to achieve
so from this humble beginning
I step forward to a new life

I am who I am and I will live my life....!

Eye in the sky

As darkness falls
with the setting sun
this blood red moon
can begin it`s run

travelling low at first
along the tree line
liquid movement
as if red wine

this blood red orb
floating there on high
watching through the clouds
as eye in the sky

so large and eerie
silent as it goes
caught in earth`s shadow
as onward it flows

My Soul`s Story

this sad soul of mine
expresses my feelings
with emotional strokes
running along each line

as my heart bleeds
my pen flows swiftly
painting pictures
across the pages

for so strong is this
my desire to write
with heartfelt passion
each story unfolds

let the emotions flow
releasing such feelings
let my soul be at peace
and flow free once more

Each soul has it`s own story to tell
so let it tell it`s story.....!

Under the Apple Tree

In the long grass
sleeps my little cat
within the shade
of an apple tree
breathing gently
purring softly
she snoozes on
without a care
Oh if only
I could be
snoozing there
under the apple tree
sleeping away
the hours of the day
no chores to do
all work is done
so sleep easy
my little cat
under the apple tree
I`ll not disturb you!

Lazy summer days are here once more....

Cradling my latte
people watching
all so busy
with their lives
some chatting happily
others in their own world
children giggling
there`s a buzz in the air
a hint of Europe
can be heard
continental ties
very much about
bright summer clothes
light up the atmosphere
music in the back ground
but not over powering
cool sat in here
people watching
my cup almost empty
but reluctant to leave
feels so relaxing
to sit here and observe!

No point......

unloved, unwanted
sheer loneliness
hurt to the core
things I touch
turn rotten
before my eyes
blackness all around
the sun has gone
my heart bleeds
for I miss the smiles
soul aching all the time
turning my stomach
perpetual fear
and emptiness
are my bed fellows
sorrow my partners
death my future......!

A dark moment.......!

Please let me help......!!

I try to talk
but you just yell
look you in the eye
so you turn away
can`t reason with you
you don`t want to know
it hurts me so much
to see you stressed

I want to help
you push me aside
I encourage you
but that's not enough
want to give you a hug
but you`re so angry
it fills me with sorrow
to see you pent up

I long to sooth
your aching heart
to lesson your worries
but you shake with rage
I won`t give up
no matter what you do
my love is strong
please let me help..!

Powerful Symbols

There`s so little between
the emotions of love and hate
a red rose or a smoking gun
these symbols are powerful

with uncontrollable feelings
both have the ability to kill
for passion can turn to envy
and be fatal in many ways
powerful sensual attractions
through sight, touch and a beating heart
the rose is a delicate item
something to be treasured with love

a scorned woman can cause trouble
so tread lightly in her boudoir
if you anger and unset her
this flower can still be lethal
capable of protecting herself 
for tucked away where you knew not
a cold metal pistol she`ll have
this thing of beauty will kill you

so remember a rose and a gun
are both very dominate symbols
capable of awesome passion
that can have powerful results

Red rose and a cold metal pistol
can both have an effect on your destiny.......!

Battles of the Realm

What battles will be fought
before these wooden gates
how bloody will be spilt
for they`ll be fraught with hate

These great stone battlements
have seem so much blood shed
many a good soldier`s died
at least that`s what they've said

Great honour for this realm
the most important thing
keeps this Kingdom going
and supports our good King!

So no matter what part you play
from the smallest role there be
to the highest knight there is
fight for honour and glory!

Snoozing Cat.....!

With blue skies overhead
the sun shinning brightly
my cat`s curled up in the shade
slumbering so lightly

A breath of breeze rustles
the grass around her fur
as she opens an eye slowly
so unwilling to even stir

This lazy feline creature
dead to the world, me thinks
snoozing in the afternoon
will not move until the sun sinks

My snoozing cat`s so hidden
no one would ever tell
as she lays there in the shade
the only hint, her jingling bell!!

sat in the garden relaxing in the sun with my cat...!

Rainbow Roses

Why should my roses
be one single colour ?
let them glow with glory
a kaleidoscope 
of many different hues
brightening up the day

Why should my roses
be held to one shade
why be regimental
matching all the rest?
just let them shine through
smiling in the sun

Why shouldn't my flowers
bring a splash of light
into my garden
for the world to see
come see their beauty
my rainbow roses

Majestic Tree

This majestic tree
noble in its stance
stands the test of time
its bark splitting
twisted and hard
home to many insects
its boughs spread out
as its stands proud
center of its world
changing with the seasons
as life goes on

this old bark
gnarled and knotted with age
cracked and arid
from many dry summers
battered by the storms of winter
eternal in it`existence
unyielding to the weather
it is could talk
the stories it would tell
many secrets it holds
deep within it`s soul

oh majestic tree
may you stand eternally

Tiger, Tiger !

each stripe is different
every coat, unique
awesome camouflage 
at nature`s boutique

moving through jungle
in silent stealth mode
seeking his next meal
as his bright eyes glowed

hardly visible
to the naked eye
this tiger`s walking
confident and sly

this majestic king
so endangered there
it`s up to us to help
save him, we must care

oh tiger tiger
for this is your hour
a symbol of freedom
such grace and power

There is a need to save these wonderful creatures

A Past Life

In the back waters of life
where all hope is lost
half sunk in the lagoon
lies a scuppered hulk
left there to disintegrate
fade away from existence

rotten wood, slowly dying
broken by time itself
as waters swell all around
for emotions have dwindled
as this shell sinks further
into the twilight years

a hard life can take it`s toll
weaken the spirit greatly
leaving just a shadow
a haunting ghost of a life
resting quietly in this place
a reminder of a great past

Chivalrous knights 

This gallery of nobles
dressed in their finery
seated around the king
regal colours and ivory

knights dressed in armour
attendants ever ready
this tournament is set
atmosphere so heady

to win the great reward
young men to prove their worth
facing the king`s champion
this is their right since birth

the sounds of thunderous hooves
of mighty horses racing past
followed by clash of lances
these actions are so fast

defeated, the losers leave
the triumphant knights celebrate
with honours bestowed by the king
new champion they nominate

loud cheers of excited crowds
after the joust has been won
so let the feast commence
this kingdom will have some fun!

After the battle
there is only silence
numbness runs through me
unsure where to go
for vision is blurred
and nothing feels real
need to recover
lick all of these wounds
then patch one`s self up
still very shaken
from all that`s happened
there`s hurt on both sides
lots of tears cried too!

where to go from here?
not to sure of that
to much has been said
hope for the future?
can`t really say now
only time will tell

after the battle
the silence sets in.......

Written on the move......

Ride cancelled by the rain

Drenched through to the core
as water streams down
splashing over everything
cascading to the ground
roaring around the yard
heavy droplets falling
stopping the journey dead
this ride cancelled by the rain

These bikes stand there alone
as the storm rages on
no chance of staying dry
for everything is drowned
this adventure has ceased
at least for this afternoon
just wait until tomorrow
and our journey will resume

Broken Trust

Trust is is an honour
not to be taken lightly
given after much thought
certainly nothing too flighty

I believe you to be that
sadly I was proved wrong
found out the hard way
you sang a different song

for with your betrayal
you not only hurt me
but ripped though my heart
and stabbed my so deeply

you did not care who you hurt
nor whose life you brought down
so callous and so selfish
wish you`d never walked into town

nasty and pugnacious
only out for your own self
yet you seemed so nice and kind
yet you left me on a high shelf

trust means so much to me
but had very little to you
your rules have no meaning
I now know this to be true

Its so hard to pick yourself up again after your trust in someone has been broken and misused...

I will survive........

I'm shaking as I write this down
no words to describe how I feel
so much pent up anger inside
this I can declare with such zeal

for once there was trust between us
a friendship, a feeling of unity
but you showed your true colours
and that did not include loyalty

my soul is weeping with all this
for I know there`ll be more pain
as you weaved your bitter magic
and hurt me again and again

as sadly tears run down my cheeks
for my sore, weeping soul
ripped asunder by your cruelty
destined never to by made whole

you pierced my bleeding heart
with your bare unyielding hands
tore it to shreds before my eyes
buried it in far distant lands

then you left me, walked away
leaving me for dead on the ground
thought I would die a lonely death
nothing to say, not making a sound

but I am stronger than that
as I have survived to live another day
for I will win this bitter battle
seek you down and make you pay!!

Sheer determination wins the back is long over due.....!!

Bombylius Major (Beefly)

This bee like insect
with stout hairy body
it`s long proboscis
seeking out some nectar 
hovers over flowers
 working hard to stay still

delicately veined wings
shimmering in the light
it`s ability to mimic
the humble bumble bee
is an amazing
feat of earth`s nature

with large compound eyes
helps it to see well
it`s long skinny legs
dangle while in flight
revealing that this bee
is a fly in disguise

nature is wonderful and always full of surprises...

A Sad Plea

my soul is sad tonight
for though there are people here
I still feel so alone
abandoned to the wolves of sorrow
a heart felt plea for love
wells up from deep down inside me
not able to battle now
though there was once a will to fight
not seeing any reason
to take up my sword and charge
this enemy within me
that`s tunnelling to get out side
seeking some guidance
I look up to the heavenly light
that I may feel peace
to remain here with my family

a sad plea for a sad situation...

Confusion rules
events are wrong
I'm singing
a different song

the pain is growing
deep within me
I am blinded
for I can not see

wishing for better
unsure what to say
or how to respond
on any day

please forgive me
I really try my best
but life can get to me
I so need a rest

for me a sleep is good
take away my sorrow
good times to come
maybe tomorrow..!

questions, confusion and sorrow....oh well, all in a day`s work...!

Blood of my Pen

this precious life blood
flows through my pen
painting many pictures
from a trail of words
these expressive letters
make colourful stories

from trees to paper
so crisp. white and clean
absorbing each word
transforming ideas
creating this painting
through the power of love

so please close your eyes
let your mind wander
words floating across
as these stories flow
through this poetry
from deep in my soul

Poetry can take you to exotic places.....

Tranquil Waters

Waters of tranquillity
sharing colours of peace
ebbing and flowing
undulating back and forth
lapping the rugged rocks
carved by wind and ocean
blue and purple hues
reflections of the sky

rich sounds sooth the soul
calming the spirit
easing away all the stress
as relaxation flows
right through the body
like gentle currents
sparkling waters
mirroring the sun

these wonderful waters blue
draw you in to their spell
calmly mesmerising 
as they wash over the rocks
taking you with them
into their deep dark depths
where you can remain
peaceful and tranquil

water calms and cleanses the soul.....

My peaceful spot...

there`s this place I know
but rarely go
to get away
a hallowed space
I hold dear
my peaceful spot

not for anyone else
to visit there
it`s just for me
my peaceful spot

deep in my mind`s recess
this place of mine
total solitude
to relax
within my space
my peaceful spot

Haven of Sanctuary

Haven of sanctuary
this little place of peace
cool by the window
where all tensions may cease

Gentle music is heard
while sipping rose lemonade
as the sun streams in
no sign it will ever fade

Room lit only by candles
flames flicker across the room
the sweet aroma of peace
that you where like a perfume

As the tensions fall away
relaxing into the mood
listening to the chatter
while they`re served their food

as time drifts, the sun sets
as the chatter continues
and cheerful laughter is heard
for much happiness ensues

somewhere you find yourself, with people yet set apart, noisy yet you are at peace....

This Might Castle....

Thick tall stone walls
surround this majestic throne
the heart of the kingdom
yet here it stands alone

Two strong wooden gates
defend the castle`s honour
fending off enemies
day by day, hour by hour

knights stand guard
protecting the royalty
with sword and shield
proclaiming their loyalty

Its towers stand tall
visible for miles around
the standard flies at full mast
seen by riders on the ground

Through all of these years
this castle has stood long
holding the realm together
so old and yet so strong

So may this regal castle
protect all it`s home lands
then everyone will be safe
from hills to the beach sands

For this mighty castle
that`s built so strong and sturdy
will remain for many years
standing proud, for all to see

Mighty Castled stood strong and proud, protecting the kingdom.....

The Grave Yard

an eerie place,
the grave yard
ghosts walk by night
visiting their friends
scaring off the living
it is an awesome sight...

the massive yew tree
hides the moon from sight
mist swirls all around
there`s a chill in the air
and a howl in the breeze
it`s such a sad sound....

slanted head stones
covered in thick moss
hidden in the shade
watch over by an owl
screeching through the night
until the moon doth fade

the departed rest
in this grave yard here
for eternity
this eerie place
an interesting spot
it holds no fears for me

Grave yard are not place to fear but where folk rest eternally....

Moon light

sat here in the still of night
through cloud, see bright shafts of moon light

illuminating parts of the sky
as different fluffy clouds float on by

half formed moon, hidden in partial shade
with crater marks, heavenly made

ravelling on its orbiting arch
as the house slumbers in the dark

for night time is when we should sleep
but I love to sit outside and peep

in to the darkness with the moon
all peaceful, before day breaks to soon

sitting in my garden in the early hours, watching the moon on its nightly orbit, so peaceful....

This bitterness
you instil in me
eats me from within
os intensely

my twisted stomach
too painful to bare
knowing how you feel
and that you don't care

I trusted you once
but you carried on
hurting me badly
as if for your fun

so as I lay here
nowhere else to go
slowly fading away
hate is all I know.........!

life can strike a cruel blow.......!

Copyright © Lissie Poems 2014. All rights reserved
I'm to blame.....

I don't blame you
if you never come back
for you were hurt
by my actions
and didn't need that
just wanted your own life

I don't blame you
for hating me
things that happened
were not your fault
I'm the evil one
for I'm to be blamed

I don't blame you
for walking away
turning your back
on me for ever
I blame myself
for causing you pain

don't blame yourself
for my bad deeds
for I'm the one
who should walk away
leave you in peace
please blame me..........!

taking the blame...can hurt in more ways than one.....

Ocean `s Stars

Moon light
shimmers over
a dancing ocean
with the currents
leaving a trail
on the

of sparkling stars
heaven`s wonders
lightly skipping
through the waves
up the world
with love......

Its that time of year again
when we celebrate your birth
remembering that special day
and now so proud of your worth

from all your childhood mischief
your scraped knees and playful tricks
coping with all the sad times too
these have been life`s building bricks

now you stand tall and proud
through it all you remain strong
for you've started you business
you have found where you belong

You will make a great Blacksmith
Hammer and Tongs will go far
Jon you are one of a kind
I know that you will be a star

Jon, you hold so much respect
and trusted by so many
you can hold your head up high

Souls in the evening sun!

Through the open window
in the setting sun light
air filled with many souls
atmosphere thick with emotions
for this time is so intense
so many comings and goings

as these souls need their release
feels like feathers fluttering
gently in the evening breeze
looking for a heart
positive energy
to give to our world

soft murmurs can be heard
such sweet sounds to ears
a warmth through the heart
as these souls find a host
allowing life to continue
the unknown is revealed

Inspired by a a picture  called "Positive Energy" by Seek-and-Hide

Clean Slate

from the bitterness of your voice
to the hatred in your harsh eyes
I feel the air thickening between us
knowing now how much of this you despise

for once there had been a great love
your mind had been open to me
but as of now there is only contempt
as you have close the door and turned the key

my world appears shut to you
for this stone barrier is strong
I hope as time had passed by, it would yield
but not for now, as this journey will be long

at the mention of your name, I weep
still upset for what could of been
for maybe we were never meant to be
so as from today our slate is wiped clean.

Rhythms of the Ocean

with the tide creeping in
freshening up all around
sea edging slowly inwards
making rhythmic sound

the ebb and flow of life
sets the rhythm of the day
controlled by the moon
that affects us in every way

at high tide all is submerged
lapping at the thick stone wall
until the tide slips away
revealing sea defences tall

as it slowly leaves our shores
debris is found on the sands
what`s the ocean left us today?
that we can turn with our hands

twice every day this occurs
through rhythms of the oceans
always stands the test of time
creating harmonic motions

Just love the ocean and is mesmerising sounds....

The Dead Slumber

the dead slumber
in their stone beds
with names etched out
on their head rests
bad weather comes
with storms beating
but the dead sleeps
nothing will wake

the living weep
for their great loss
loved ones have gone
they've cross over
with their maker
they now reside
as the dead wait
for the coming

as the wind howls
and an owl hoots
their ghosts now stir
through evening mist
moss covered stone
with names fading
memories lost
as time goes by

sleep on dear friend
I`ll not forget
your good deeds
you did for me......

Mother Earth sees all

Her eye is all seeing
you can not hide 
she watches over you
through all the seasons
from the winter snows
to the summer flowers
Mother Earth sees all

For she nurtures nature
as best she can
it saddens her to see
how you damage the land
and pollute the oceans
not always obvious, but
Mother Earth sees all

Trees for our benefit
the earth is good
with clear running water
there`s everything you need
but taken for granted
you destroy all that`s pure
Mother Earth sees all

With blue skies over head
sun on our backs
Mother Earth treats us well
an arc of protection
she offers all to you
so love one another
Mother Earth loves all

Sympetrum Striolatum   (Dragonfly)

Poised just above
sweet blue petals
shimmering body
orange in the sunlight

fluttering slightly
in the gentle breeze
narrow veined wings
transparent to the eye

this dragonfly
warming in the sun
so spectacular
intricate patterns seen

delicate insect
beauty on the wing
with large compound eyes
aware of everything

life in the air
seldom seen up close
this creature of style
has its place in nature...
