Lissie`s Poems

I saw this site on Facebook
where local artists are found 
their handcrafted work to see
I just had to look around

this poem is written by Lissie

and was tailor made for you
it captures a moment in time
to treasure your whole life through

Bleeding ink

Red ink flowing
as if bleeding
glistening warm
against my skin
telling my story
of passionate love
that pours from my heart
over these pages

 As you slumber...

the curves of your body
as you lay there sleeping
watching you at slumber
your safety I'm keeping

to see you there relaxed
wonder what you`re dreaming
as you look so at peace
your radiance beaming

want to curl up with you
protect you from all harms
now you lay snugly here
holding you in my arms

hair limp on the pillow
your skin so soft and sweet
my dear, sleeping there
tucked up under the sheet

watching your loved ones sleep....

Tender Moment

Stood in the rain sharing a brolly

huddled up close together
winds howling all around us
through wet and horrid weather

Looking up into your eyes
I spy a very cheeky grin
as drops of rain run down your face   
then drip off your handsome chin

So let us just forget this brolly
wrap ourselves in each others arms
I know we`ll be alright here
for you can woo me with your charms

This storm`s soaking us completely
as we kiss under the lamp light
a tender moment just for us
standing there well into the night

moments together create memories and strengthen the bonds

Garden in Spring 

Blue skies dotted with fluffy white clouds
as the heat beats down,  summer yearns
a siren sounds in the distance
melting away, as peace returns

pink blossom on the apple tree now
red tulips swaying in the sun light
everything is starting to come alive
butterflies dart around, what a sight.

yawning,  my cat stretches out it`s legs
dozing in the warm afternoon sun
it`s attention taken, as a bee flies by
jumping around, it pounces, what fun!

as the sun slowly starts to dip down
the shadows lengthen across the ground
fresh cut grass scent drifts through the air
a haven of tranquillity is found.

Photos of my garden brings back memories of spring time and the new buds and bulbs
coming up.  Love to watch nature coming back to life after winter.

Always a reliable fella
Never a dull moment
Daring and fun loving
Revving up his tractors
Ever ready to lend a hand
Wonderful friend to know !

Good Night
Sweet Dreams

As the stars come out to shine
I wearily climb the stairs to bed
though my body is tired right now
my mind can`t wait to dream
so I`ll wish you all a Good Night...!

Stormy Seas

Foamy topped waves hitting the beach
then rising up the sandy shore
depositing shells and drift wood
amongst the rocks, with such a roar

seas crashing over the wind-breaks
churning and howling with such power
deafening you with all it`s fury
landing waves high up the tower

through the night the storm rages on
the coast gets so badly battered
splintered wood and twisted buildings
nothing safe, as all is shattered

morning light brings peace and stillness
all is quiet now the storm has passed
washed up debris along the beach
shows how the seas can change so fast.

My Hero....!

Father, my hero
you're one of a kind
protective and caring
always on my mind

my knight in bright armour
saving me from all harm
strong and determined
yet loving and calm !

Over the garden wall...

Over the garden wall 
the cat and dog now chat
putting the world to right
food, toys, owners and all that!

leaning against the wall
standing amongst the flowers
ears pricked and eyes alert
they carry on for hours

should their humans do more
and feed them better food
show them love in different ways
they had to be more shrewd 

Cat was really happy
she has a lovely new bed
very soft and comfy
somewhere to lay her head

Dog very was excited
and madly wagging his tail
for he had a new ball and lead
then he was distracted by a snail

as the sun was setting
they were called inside
their suppers were ready
off they went with pride !

Favourite things.....

tip toeing through the bluebells
under the dappled sunlight
filtering down among the leaves
creating pattern that look so bright

running along the sandy beach
tiny grains between my toes
the surf ebbing in and out
calming the spirit as it goes

letting my hair down to music
while dancing all around
listening to the lively beat
singing along the the great sound

love watching the dawn each morning
as the sun fills the sky with light
vivid colours seen across the sky
all this is such an awesome sight

being with the one I adore
his gentle kiss upon my skin
as my heart beats with delight
feeling happiness deep within

these are a few of my favourite things
little pleasures that help life along
I'm sure you have some of your own
hold onto them, they're what make you strong.

These sweet red bugs
with rounded bellies
in spotted red coats
scurrying over leaves
on warm sunny days
so it must be summer

Always by my side
Taught me how to live

Double Joy....

Welcoming our bundles of joy
two pairs of feet and hands
bright eyes that show pure love
and curls of golden strands

hearing their gurgling sounds
our great joy can not be beat
sharing the love of twins
our family`s now complete

There`s sadness in my heart today
a strong yearning to set it free
so let the ink in my pen flow
dancing across crisp white sheets
easing the pain from deep within

Tiny Petals

Tiny petals peeping through the earth
slowly opening up to the sun
stretching out for all to see
showing off to everyone

their perfume scent so delicate
caught in the summer breeze
wafting around so gently
nestled there under the trees

as night time begins to take a hold
there`s a chill in the air
as their petals start to close 
a stillness found everywhere

Snuggled up

after a hard day of playing
exploring all around
it`s time to curl up cosy
in this spot you have found

a soft and fluffy blanket
just right for a sleepy head
purring so contently
snug on your mistress`s bed

Spring Time

Apple blossom 

sweet smelling tulips
frog`s eggs in the pond
all signs that spring is here
bluebells and caterpillars
the gardens come to life
longer days and shorter nights
sitting out in the evening sun
listening to the bird calls
watching the cats play
relaxing in the sunshine
enjoying this spring time!

Spring time, when Mother earth wakes up..!

Not tonight.......

hard to write tonight
feeling so numb
or is it dumb
I'm not sure
the voices in my head
are fighting with my soul
words will not flow
I'm all dried up

pictures in my mind
flashing before me
all jumbled up
no order here
just a tear
nothing working

it feels like the words are running
even scared to behave
there is no order
yet I want to write
what a sight
all muddled up

maybe its not to be
silence tonight
yet no peace in my head
I've lost the thread
will nothing flow?

so hard to write tonight
there`s always tomorrow
maybe its time to sleep........

Cuddles in Bed

There is a warm feeling in my heart
as I watch you beside me sleeping
with your face so peaceful there
wonder what secrets you are keeping

Your eyes flicker with your dreams
I'm curious to know, so take care!
offering you a penny for those thoughts
as I softly stroke your hair

Hearing your steady breathing
snoozing away so gently
I love to see you so relaxed
as you lay there contently

The warmth that you generate
soothing away my aches and pains
thus easing us both into deep sleep
releasing all the days strains

Drifting off into peaceful slumber
wrapped up in your arms so strong
safe in the knowledge that you are there
protecting and loving me all night long

Cuddles aids a great night of dreaming.....

Snoozing Cats......

It always amazes me
the strange mind of my daft cat
so many places to sleep
why use my mail as a mat!
there are cushions and pillows
the sofa, blankets or chair
so why does she chose my work?
which she lays down on with care
there`s a house full of comforts
from beds, coats to window sills
I just don`t understand why
she picks the pile of house bills
cats can be quite strange at times
you never know where they`ll snooze
they really make you chuckle
the places they seem to choose

I love my two cats very much, but they chose the most silliest of places to sleep!

Poetry by candle light

an urge to put pen to paper
with poetry from the heart
record dreams that dwell in the soul
seeping out in the dead of night

needing to share these pictures
that flow from deep within
scrabbling to write them down
commit poetry by candle light

Easter Egg Hunt

Easter eggs wrapped up in foil
colourful, shiny and bright
all hidden for you to find
tucked away out of sight

so off you go and hunt them
see how many you can see
collect them in a basket
then share them carefully !
