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

Expanding focus

Beyond self

Embrace, contribute

One Winter Morning

On lofty mountains

Snow-packed and

covered in white

Dazzling under blue

skies one

winter morn.

~

The mountain air

Fresh, crisp, exhilarating

as if to lift

one’s joy

to

sing sweet music

of wonder and praise.

~

Look beyond the

clouds which

hide the shining sun

to the vista of

creation

and celebrate

with a heart of delight.

Crossroads

Decision to make

Vital and challenging

Optimistic reasoning

A bigger picture.

The Green Sanctuary

Hidden island

Rural forested

Paths less explored

Eco-friendly park

Cool tree ferns

Cascading waterfalls

Meandering streams

Schools of fish

The green sanctuary.

Like the deer

longs for the cool

waters of the stream

Crystal clear waters

flow abundantly

 and does quench

to satisfy the thirst.

~

And the longing soul

dreams of love and peace

so the heart within

knows the joy destined

from knowing the Creator

God of hope and peace.

(Based on Psalm 42)

Promise Of Hope

May there be

a song to sing

the dream of expectant hope

of charity instead of despair

the promise of justice

in humanitarian issues

in living standards

health and quality of life

instead of poverty and disease.

~

May the global perspective

of this beautiful earth

awaken us to

a glorious morning

of healing

and to this

promise of hope.
