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...!

Wintry Morning

So warm and snug here under my covers
don`t really want to get out of bed
it`s dark and cold outside my window
yet I have a busy day ahead

down in the kitchen the kettle boils
breakfast fills me up before I go
with hat, scarf and gloves, I step outside
a frosty white world, as the winds blow

crunchy pathways and frozen windows
white cobwebs draped across the garden
breathe visible as I walk along
for the winter has arrived again !

A wonderful daughter I have 
your goodness beyond measure
kindness, beauty and friendship
I will forever treasure

Happy Birthday

day diminishes
as darkness slowly creeps in
while street lamps light up!

after the hustle of the day
there`s the silence of the night
stillness of my pen that lays there
for the ink has ceased to flow now
the only pictures that are painted ....are the ones in my mind!

Snowdrops in the snow

Tiny shoots peeping through the snow
first signs of growth this year
crisp in the morning sunshine
wonderful to see them here

it feels like a new beginning
a fresh start towards the spring
nature waking up after winter
certainly makes my heart sing

little flashes a green and white
they raise their tiny heads each day
these flowers will be joined by others
as the snow slowly melts away

so when I see the first snowdrops
I know spring`s just round the corner
for winter will soon be behind us
as the year starts to get warmer

I have always felt that to see the first snowdrop of the year peeping through the snow
is something very special.

Painted faces
custard pies
great big boots
and googly eyes

a funny smile
or great big grin
wicked laughter
and wobbly chin

a silly joke
for us to share
slap stick fun
with all the flare

slippery slidey
banana skins
smiles and laughter
the fun begins

Remembering a children`s party and all the laughter !!

Pieces of Memories

Broken fragments in my palm
remnants held in plain sight
shattered memories from the past
pieces shimmering in this light

like an unfinished puzzle
my past so treasured
held in high esteem
each emotion measured

the future is uncertain
will there be a missing part
that will haunt me til I die
only if they break my heart!

and always there for you
love you so much

Happy Mothering Sunday

Little Blue Owls

Sweet little owls
the colour of blue
sat there watching
just waiting for you

little feet resting
no where to roam
bright eyed owls
just needing a home

Eternal Rose

A red rose for you my love
to show how much I care
From a tiny little bud
peeping through the mists of time
Growing slowly with each day
as tender love is shown
Fed with kindness
as the petals start to open
Pure beauty is seen inside
promising much treasure
Through the sun light
releasing such a sweet fragrance
The flower opens completely
Such an awesome sight
Expressing my love
in this rich red rose
My eternal love
I love you

A rose can say so much more than
I love you!

Pink Dawn

pink candy skies
first thing in the morn
warmth hanging in the air
colours bringing in the dawn

a light and cheery start
to brighten up the day
puts a spring in my step
to help me on my way

soft fluffy candyfloss
seems good enough to eat
light and tasty looking
starts the day with a treat

Golden Rose  

This golden rose
that lays before me
with velvety petals
looking so beautiful
its sweet aroma
filling the room

then see the dark side
such harsh defenses
sharpness of thorns
on a slender stem
that can draw blood
such bitter sweetness

two sides of beauty
I see before me
coldness of thorns
sweetness of sight
this golden rose
natural beauty

Parenthood is more than just chores
life should be lived to the full with
Laughter, love and fun
making new memories together
run through fields, splash in puddles
and never forget to

share hugs and cuddles !

I will always remember you when
I look up at the stairs

I will always remember you when

I am so far away

I can`t hug you or hold your hand now

But I will always remember you

All the things that you gave me will

Remind me that you were there for me.

To all the mothers who feels like a failure
because she doesn't live up other's expectations
"cut yourself some slack"
once in awhile,  
just go and have some fun!

Written Memories

At the end of the day 
I lay down my pen
and think of all that I have written about

emotions and feelings...
or a photography 
hidden by a layer of dust

all memories ,,,,,
that I've held within my heart

now giving them new life
through the ink that I use
reliving a bygone time
as they dance across the papers

painting pictures 
that I can remember
cherishing those moments
that I hold so dear.....

never to be forgotten !

Light reflecting through the blue waters
the sea bed`s alive with bright colours
red grasses along with yellow ferns
an ocean garden full of flowers

fish swim amongst all these tentacles
surprised there`s such a great array
a diverse mixture of marine life
it all feels like a living display

the waters undulating with life
swimming through the vegetation
feels like paradise revisited
colours, corals and  crustaceans

this beautiful tropical ocean
is much more than a pool of water
its a vibrant garden so full of life
not something you would want to alter!

Our seas are wonderful and we should appreciate them more!

As the night grows darker
and the ink in my pen starts to fade
dreams dance across my imagination
creating images for me to paint with words
once daylight breaks free of the horizon tomorrow!

Listen to the whispers,
the whispers from your heart
for they will set you free
telling your soul softly
not to be afraid to walk your path....
open your eyes and see the light
that shines brightly from your inner self, 
so never fear the whispers 
from your heart....!

Red rose the symbol of eternity
to be held by a tender heart
for without true love
there is no rthym or reason
only a world that's torn apart !

Rain`s on the way...

The skies darken over head
for clouds are rolling in
there seems a heaviness
I can feel it begin

the air starts to change now
a weight upon my shoulders
the first large drops of rain
makes the day seem colder

every drop of rain seems heavy

splashing upon the ground
I hear them in my mind`s eye
as they're landing all around

sky looks so foreboding
it`s like the dead of night
almost claustrophobic
wow, such an eerie sight

then the flood gates open
torrential rain pouring down
thundering on the roof tops
feel I'm going to drown

curled up safe on my sofa
this is where I`ll reside
let the stormy skies continue
for I`m warm and snug inside.

Painted Skies

painting the world in gold and orange
black silhouettes depicted so clear
as the sun starts to descend on it`s night path
for the horizon`s ablaze from the red hot sphere

rippling waters mirrored across the sky
as elegant swans float over the surface
dark veiled clouds scattered above this great orb
a celestial star that has great purpose 

our giver of life force from the universe
that appears from the east and sets in the west
painting our world in wonderful colours
this majestic sun, we are so blessed!

Stone Guards 

Standing like guards
beside the ocean
surveying all
of the tidal motions

scarred by the wind

with sand by their feet
forever vigilant 
but happy to greet

these soldiers of time

have stood here for years
watching the world
yet shedding no tears

a testament to life

these stone guardians
who`ll remain on duty
as beach custodians

Recipe For The Day

Start your day off with a cup of coffee

spoon in some happiness and love
add whipped cream of mystery
shake on chocolate from above

With this you should also have
a bowl of energy and fun
pour on the milk of strength and wit
for now your day has just begun

To really finish of this treat
you`ll need some hot and crunchy toast
spread with some caring harmony
with this you`ll reach the winning post!!

Time to go

How can I help ?
if you've turned life against me 
why should I care ?
as you've  slammed the door shut 
where is the love ?
for all I see is selfishness 
your heart is cold
you've shown your true colours
where there was joy
bitterness is all that`s left
so sad for you
as you showed great hope
this is the end
it`s time for me to walk away
