Good Night........

When your day didn`t go your way
as your plans were ripped apart
and stress has gripped your heart
you know its time to say Good Night
and float away on dreams......
for tomorrow`s a new start !

A New Day..!

Hearing nature's alarm clock
dawn's tuneful chorus in full swing
our world is slowly stirring
wonder what this day will bring !

as the sun wakes us from slumber
bright and breezy in the morn
skies painted so vividly
depicting a brand new dawn

what mysteries will unfold
before the sun dips once more
leaving us to dream again
travelling on a distant shore !

With the setting of the sun
and the rising of the moon
we take to our slumber and dream
and awaken to the song bird`s tune

Papilio Machaon

delicate wings
so paper thin
soft cream colours
tipped with pale
blue and orange
held in the breeze

large eyes watching

antennas testing
clinging to a stem
by skeleton legs
with curled tongue
tasting the pollen
from this tiny
white blossom

living art

sweet scented
so petite 
so beautiful
light on the air
a wondrous sight

Wings of Freedom 

Fly free my child 
spread your wings wide
take flight along your new path
and enjoy the awesome ride

new horizons await you
take it all within your grasp
soaring above this world
and see it all at last

so fly with confidence  
try out new adventures 
spread your wings of freedom 
create memories to treasure

Life`s Journey.....

Life is but a stepping stone

we`ll be reunited forever

Here comes the rain...

As skies darken over head
and clouds roll on in 
there seems a heaviness
as you can feel it begin

these drops of rain are heavy
splashing upon the ground
forming patterns on the path
as they land all around

with skies so foreboding
the darkness felt like night
almost claustrophobic
wow, such an eerie sight

when the flood gates opened
torrential rain poured down
thundering on the roof tops
everything could drown

through this heavy storm
it`s best to remain inside
until this down pours past
by the fire is where I`ll hide

So Tired

If I offend
or make you mad
it just because
I`m really sad

I feel alone
just need a friend
this situation
there seems no end

for no one`s there
to help me through
I`m now too tired
what can I do?

The beach

Golden grains of sands
Feels hot under my feet
Sticking to my toes
In this summer heat

Gentle ebbing waters
Flowing to and fro
Movement of the tides
Changing from high to low

Tidal pools appearing
Exposing life to see
There for a short time
Near to the quay

Sunshine beating down
Shadows banished away
Creating memories
Of a wonderful day.

Dearest Steve....
I can`t believe its been 9 years since the angels came for you and gave you peace. I think of you each day and miss you so much. Can`t wait to walk with you once more, hand in hand by the sea. Love and miss you always xXx

My prayer......

To my dearest husband
a little prayer from me
to say how much I miss you
wish you were here you see !
you are always on my mind
especially on this day
my heart still aches for you
since angels took you away
miss your cheeky laughter
and the sparkle in your eye
to hear your voice once more
but I must remain here to cry
they say life`s a stepping stone
to peace and tranquility
so I can`t wait to be with you
and walk hand in hand by the sea
wrap me in your loving arms
softly whisper that you love me
relive all our memories
and stay together eternally

Love and miss you always Steve xXx

Bubbling brook

In the bright afternoon sun
as bees buzz round the flowers
this little river babbles by
somewhere I can sit for hours

Clear cool water bubbling by
rippling over the river bed
the soothing sound so peaceful
under the cherry blossom red

Sun flickering through the trees
that are perched along the way
sparkling across the surface
on this sunny tranquil day

While birds sing and frogs croak
and the water gurgles past
so relaxing in the sunshine
hope that this peace will last

roll on the long summer days.....!

Morning sunrise silently
reveals her beauty
dancing across the sky
this daily ritual, her duty !

flowing silks of vivid colours
lighting up this land
with nature silhouetted
she holds the world in her hand !

Incy Wincy Spider

Incy wincy spider
sunning itself today
along came an insect

sat on her crafted web
surveying all around her
boss of this quiet pond

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

love, beauty, 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 from the heart

Life`s ideals

Something we should bare in mind,
a little piece of humble pie
is always a good thing to have,
with a forgiving heart nearby.
this world is a harsh place to live
brutality is all around
some people don`t care who they hurt
sometimes there`s little love to be found
so lets share a cup of kindness
forgive and help those where we can
a little love travels a long way
 at least that's going be my plan!

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

  Lazy Sundays

  Shhh its Sunday...a day of rest
  chill and relaxation is the best
  hot coffee while reading the paper
  quiet moments that we need to savour
  wafting aromas of a Sunday roast
  then maybe a stroll along the coast
  evenings in front of a roaring fire
  counting the years until we retire
  soft gentle memories remain so clear
  of lazy Sundays that are so dear

Sunny Days

Sunshine and blue skies
laughter and big smiles

ice cream and sticky fingers
a memory that lingers

bright coloured fabrics
and some cheery lyrics

face paints and coloured balloons
on lazy sunny afternoons

with ice lollies dripping
let`s go skinny dipping

chilling out in many ways
enjoying those sun filled days!

Puss In Boots !

In boots so exquisite
he strides along the way
this master Pussy Cat
he'll always save the day!

beautiful big green eyes
under his feathered hat
soft fur that's so elegant
he's such a masterful cat !

if you ever need his help
when there's danger in the air
he'll defend your honour
with such vigour and flare !

My Little Angel

Sleep well my little one
it's time for slumber
darkness of the night is here
and the moon shines bright
let the stars sparkle above
while you dream away
snuggle up and close your eyes
for I'll protect you until dawn
so sleep well tonight
my sweet little angel!

Reflections of my world

heavy streaks of water
makes my view a muddle
for my upside down world
is nestled in a puddle

rippling in the breeze
disappearing in an instant
by the marching passers-by
destroying all so distant

all that I can see, is
reflections all around
distorted and yet clear
my world on the ground.

it`s funny how a puddle reflects our distorted world.......

Setting them free.....

Through the silence of a family home
where all have now flown from the nest
like butterflies out of an open window
holding onto memories so blessed

Set them free to experience life
and watch them continue their journey
be content with all you've taught them
through your guidance, they're more than worthy!

Fly my children fly
like butterflies through an open window
freedom is but a short distance
to flutter on through their lives.

Journey onwards
to experience everything in life
tasting all that's on offer 
so fly.....feel the sun on your wings !

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 landing
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

Sleeping Cat

I see a sleeping cat 
at the end of my bed
shaped like a crescent moon, 
what dreams in her head?

with legs stretched out 
and her tail curled round
she almost looks dead 
because she makes no sound

if you look carefully 
her breathe is very slow
such a little minx 
but I love her so

ears pricked up sharp 
as she lays at rest
looks so content 
if poked she would protest !

looks so tranquil there
but she knows what`s going on
don`t let her fool you
she thinks it`s so much fun

I see a snoozing cat 
who`s watchful of the day
peacefully sleeping
but alert in every way !
