Simply Poetry

Heavenly Night

With such sweet music

of the resounding shore

with a thousand echoes

of the melodious waves

In the calm of night

whispering wind in concert serenades

scintillating sky of sparkling stars

a heavenly symphony.

Sweeter Than Honey

Ripe fruit sweeter than honey

Sweet flowers like perfumed roses

Summer’s beauty in love’s song

The songbird sings for joy

The songbird sings for joy.

Ode To A Salad

Salad days are here again

leaves and summer fruits

of colours bright

dark green

light green leaves

crinkly and crisp.


Tossed in to mix

with bright red and yellow capsicums

some avocado, tomatoes

juicy cucumbers

drizzled light in olive oil

juice of an orange

cracked pepper

and some walnuts to add

to a refreshing crisp crunchy

appetiser for summer.

Dream That Dream

On distant shores

waves weaving sculptures

on shoreline

made of sea scented sand

Birds with wings stretched wide

they glide through the wind


Island in the sun

majestic palms

breath-taking hues

of pink and magenta

sunsets enchanting, alluring

inspiring beauty of life

wonders of miracles

to imagine … to dream.

Love’s Rhapsody

‘Tis glorious morning

the melodious birds

sing a song

like ten thousand

mandolins echo

dawn’s chorus

to the dancing

flowers of joy

in dazzling splendour

this beautiful morning.

How He Loved Us

How He loved us

The sacrifice He made

His precious blood that cleansed us

from every sin and guilt

For He has paid the price

For He has paid the price.

To The Eyes …

Landscapes of tranquil

Sea of calm

Wonders of nature

Contemplative space.

Spring Sweet Spring

This is that joyous morn

the fields with flowers

in every hue …

the beauty of spring!

Beyond the hills

the river runs

cool, cool waters.

Skylark sings flying

that spring morn

a sweet song

the fields breathe

spring sweet spring.

A Sweet Refrain

Hush of night

as rain clouds part

and the moon peeps

a moment of beauty …

Lightning strikes

rain pounding down

puddles and puddles

bubbles dancing

to the rhythm of the rain.

Heavenly Dewdrops

Seeds Of Love

Seeds Of Love

Where seeds of love
are sown
healing and growth begin …

Rustling In The Wind

A thousand violins

Magical love

Captivating moments.

Have You Ever …

stopped to listen

to the music

of the waves

when you walked

along the beach?

Waves of tranquillity

Wonders of nature

to the earth’s eye

Most beautiful …

to dream

to be inspired …

On Blue Waters

White sails on the harbour

Sparkling blue waters

Waves calm on a

warm summer’s day

at Salamanca Place.



The light breeze

Sails catching the wind

fluttering as the yachts

gathered momentum

towards the waterfront.


The summer of blue skies

Flock of birds

waltzing in the breeze

The air is filled with birdsong …

Symphony of the morning.

The River Flows

On a starry silvery night sky

A brilliant golden moon shines

Below the hills

the gentle river flows.

Spring In the Air

Melodies of spring

swallows twittering

robin redbreast whistling

season of beauty and growth

rosy hues sweet as love.


Joy that overflows

bliss of pleasure

fill the heart

perfume evocative of spring.

Isle Of Lullabies

Rhythm of blue waves

Lullabies of seashells

Sandy songs of love

And the music lingers on …

The Town Of Titipu

I’ve got a little list

A wandering minstrel I

The cherry blossoms bloom in spring

A comic opera

Savoy musical

A satire set

in a far faraway land.


And Yet …


for there is

no rain for days …

There is no

sight of sun …


The air is still

the haze stands

to attention

while birds

sing no song


Hills silent

no longer green

and yet, and yet …

even from

the blanket of pollution

a new sun can rise …

The Love Of God

The heavens are telling

the glory of God

and the earth proclaims

His handiwork

The love of God can never fail

The love of God can never fail.

(based on Psalm 19:1)

Passion …

Will give meaning and purpose

to your work

to enjoy it

Will inspire you

to be excellent

to be motivated

Will sustain you

to pursue your interests

to achieve your personal best.
