Simply Poetry

Will You?

Choose to stand still

Behold the miracles

Breathe in the hues

The quiet waters

The lake of tranquility.

Pure Delight

One harmony

Heaven’s joy

Angelic voices.

To Market, To Market

Fascinating, wet market

Fresh farm produce

vegetables, meats

poultry and seafood

Vendors there to please

Early morning

The atmosphere

bustling with shoppers

who enjoy a good choice

of fresh daily selections.

~

Another section

of the market

Fresh fruits

Colourful and inviting!

Around the corner

a space for

vibrant array of flowers

Cut flowers of

different varieties.

~

These markets

growing in popularity

Multi-ethnic groups

offering, enriching

catering for every palette and taste

Having guests for

dinner this weekend?

Hmm, I’m off to

market, to market!

Can One Wonder?

at atrocities

of people

Remain silent

to injustice

Turn a blind eye

to bullying and racism

Maintain silence

Can we?

By The Silvery Light

Blue Tango

Dancing waves

Moonlight serenade.

Born Free

Where birds are free

Wings stretched wide

They glide with the wind

Follow that dream.

A Postcard From …

A trip on a funicular railway

to hilltop sites, hiking and exploring

Lunch at a colonial bungalow

Tastefully refurbished

with spacious balconies

Offering birds eye view

of hill country landscape

~

Round the island trip

on a hop on, hop off bus

Novel way of seeing interesting

Beach and city views

and cultural enclave

You hop on and hop off

at any stop to walk about

Take photos

or just enjoy a cuppa

at the tea-house

and watch the world go by …

~

Evening boat cruise

captures harbour lights

and the stunning sunset

As it lights up the evening sky

to a warm orange glow

Where sparkling stars

begin to twinkle

And the gentle breeze

adds to the day’s

experience and reflection

On this eclectic

Isle of palms.

 

All Eyes On Them!

Smartly dressed

in black and white

Here they come

parading in

from the sea

Precisely at dusk

The fairies of

Phillip Island.

What Inspires …

A little imagination

Hobbies

Interests

A new way of doing

Or a new something to do

Be curious

Explore

Think differently

Be creative …

Summer In The Gardens

In the gardens

surrounded by lakes

Treed setting

Spreading green lawns

A season of new growth.

~

Summer’s song of

twittering birds in

gatherings under blue skies

Splashes of vivid

coloured flowers

lavender hues

lingering scent

Wonders of ripeness

of the season.

~

The rock garden

hardy succulents

miniature shrubs

enjoying full sunshine

displaying amazing

splendour this summer.

 

Such Alluring Days

Sweeter than honey

Brighter than golden

Showers of sunshine

Days of summer roses

Fragrance and warmth.

~

Nature sounds

Songbirds’ chorus

Lyrical

Ode to joy

Music sweet as love.

~

Garden of pleasure

Adoring pink blossoms

Hearts of love

Precious as diamonds

Shining brilliantly

Illuminating the heavens above.

The Flautist

Magic flute

Echoing serenades

The joy of love.

Casuarinas

By the beach

Rhythm and music

The wild sea

Song of poetry.

A Yellow Umbrella

Raindrops and bubbles

Dancing on water

Reflections in a mirror.

Learn To

Recognise difficult circumstances

with a vision

to overcome and

to be resilient.

Sea Of Choices …

What gentle breeze

blows in the

morning song

the early bird

on dawn’s

calling of the day?

~

Calm, sparkling

wide sea of

choices is as

certain as the

ebb and flow

of tide

today

tomorrow of time.

~

Fresh hues of

sweet scented jasmine

pure and delicate

permeating beauty

and all of life’s

amazing wonders

this gem of a pearl.

Book Sandwich

A bookish delight

somewhat different

to the ordinary

bookshop or café

even a sandwich place.

~

A hive of activity

informal pleasantness

a great attraction

of this quaint

beautifully designed

art décor

heritage melting pot.

~

Antique furniture

bookshelves with

interesting biographies

and rare books

to browse

or just relax

and listen to

piano jazz music.

~

A trendy oasis

where people meet

to unwind

catch up

and chill out!

A Burst Of Synergy

Ability to articulate

Words that connect

People with goals

Engage others

in a sincere

honest relationship

Seasons Of Hope

Seasons of growth

Young buds

after bitter winds

winter’s frost

on soil of hope.

~

Just like seeds

planted and nurtured

in due season

flowering blooms

yield a bountiful harvest.

~

Appreciation of life’s

simple joys

pleasures and truth

beauty and love

linger on and on

till fresh music

echoes a symphony.

A Special Torte!

Smooth, luxuriously delectable

Rich and delicious

An excellent piece

of Sacher-Torte

Just perfect with

a hot black kaffee.

~

An enchanted evening

in charming Wien

The magnificent opera

Music to enthrall

at the historic

opulent Opera House.
