Simply Poetry

On That Night

The haunting sounds

of the didgeridoo*

Stories and folklore

Outback Alice Springs

By the warm campfire

they strummed the ukulele

and played the harmonica

From his soul

he sang

in a deep voice

it echoed

and it echoed

through the night

Cool and crisp

frosty air

under the starry sky.

Can You Imagine?

An arid desert

in the outback

with stunning

coloured wildflowers

Miraculous mountains

from the misty sea

sculpt the landscape

spectacular waterfalls

cascading waters of life.

~

How glorious

nature’s wonders

creation’s beauty

breathtaking …

sunrises

sunsets

I stand in awe …

The Desert Red

Encapsulating the magic

of the desert sky

as evening glows

a vibrant red

sunset at Ayers Rock

breathtaking landscape

changing colours of Uluru.

Space Between People

Contemporary dance

body language

to mirror

human behaviour

contemplative communication

to share

thoughts, perspectives

across cultures

space between people

connecting people

voicing, expressing

dance and beyond …

Silver Lining

Soft beams of sunshine

through the silver lining

gently whispering hope

A comforting word.

That Autumn Evening

April sings

Gentle sound of rain

on the windowpane

Soft piano jazz

in the still of the night.

Tranquil Foliage

The leaves of a tree

rustle gently in the wind

Vivid green foliage

A tranquil gaze to the eyes.

Magical Harmony

A thousand mellow strings

of captivating violins play

melodious birds sing and dance

in beautiful harmony.

Love’s Serenade

Beautiful dreamer

lover of life

come and enchant me

with sweet melody.

~

Songs of the summer

dreamy with love

beauty and splendour

pleasures of joy.

~

Seasons refreshing

awakening blooms

colours of flowers

perfume and hues.

~

Songs of the summer

dreamy with love

beauty and splendour

pleasures of joy.

Can It Be?

Humanity

fragile and delicate

like a dry leaf

fallen to the ground?

Yet

a new life

can be nurtured

in every changing season

a life miraculously transformed

into a beautiful creation?

Christ Has Risen

Rejoice, Christ has risen

Rejoice, Christ has risen

to give new life

Rejoice, Christ has risen

to give new hope

to give new hope

Rejoice all believers

The victory is won

Celebrate and rejoice

Praise the Son of God.

A Blessed Easter

A Magical Wonderland

Glass art and garden

artistic glass sculptures

blending art and nature

unique enchanting garden

exotic plants

a mosaic of colours

orchard environs

Harmony in nature

aesthetic art work

beauty and quality

exciting, creative perspective.

Quiet Solitude

Soothing sounds

of gentle waves

the ebbing tide

a rickety pier

lone fishing boat

out at sea

a dreamy haven.

How Beautiful …

The smiles that win

the eyes that sparkle

a heart whose love

is tender and passionate

In beauty and grace

so calm, a life

thoughts serenely expressed.

~

Like a red, red rose

sweetly perfumed

and music fills with pleasure

a love in truth

a life in truth

the best things in the world.

When I Consider

When I consider

the wondrous miracles of nature

on the ever-changing scene

of this vast earth

the sky with moon and stars

that shine so brilliantly

refreshing showers of April

new growth of spring

holding all in perfection

but only momentarily

like a poet’s imaginary sight.

The skylark sings for joy

at the break of dawn

sweet hymns in praise

of season’s glorious splendour.

Precious Moments

Scintillating little diamonds

across the canopy of the sky

high above … unreachable

yet sparkling brighter

through the night

into the precious moments

of serenity …

Celebrating Hope

Their story in creative song and dance

abandoned, abused children

show their gratitude

for a myriad of mercies

of love and hope

to remind us

of courage and perseverance

and never to despair.

~

Their moving message

touched hearts

and stirred emotions

to reflect on the difference

we can all make

by showing love and giving hope

to these precious lives

because we have the capacity

to love, care, don’t we …

in some way?

Acacia Gold

Under blue skies

twittering birds

around the golden wattle

a charming home

on a hilltop


A Sweet Symphony

A Sweet Symphony

A quiet night

myriads of stars

sparkling

a thousand strings

mesmerising

island of dreams

sound of waves

serenading

a sweet symphony

Dance Of The Yachts

White sails flotilla

on rippling

blue waters.
