Swan On The Lake

Like myriads of twinkling stars

on glistening waters

Tiptoed the graceful movements

of the ballerina.

~

The Swan Lake played

Gentle ripples

Echoes of the waves

Rhythmic movements

of the ballet.

~

The music of the night

orchestrated the strings and bows

To an art of

evocative music and dance.

A Poetic Allegro

Days of love

and splendour

Beauty to adore

dancing to the music

of Love’s allegro

Sweetly luring

sweetly calling

~

Warmth of sunshine

dew of heaven

sprinkling joy

in morning light

evening song

whispering hope

Love amazing

Joy divine

~

Fresh roses greeting

The first scent of spring

Ode to joy

Playing sweetly

Sweetly playing

Harmony’s allegro

Sing A Joyous Song

With music and the sound

of the trumpet

Make a joyful

song to the Lord

With music and the sound

of the harp

Make a joyful

melody to the King.

~

Sing forth

a joyous song

Sing praises

to the Lord

Rejoice and

make melody

Break forth

into joyous song.

~

(Based on Psalm 98: 4 – 6)

Is Beauty Skin Deep?

The halo effect

Clouds true characteristics

Look beyond face value.

What Happened …? The Tangled Web

Trust deceived

Disappointment mounts

Friendship betrayed

Belief disturbed

The plot thickens.

~

People are hurt

by disturbing events

But it is their belief

about these events

that traumatises.

Melody Of Spring

Season’s song

of April showers

flowers for the bees

warm days of beauty

colours and blooms

the robin red-breast

chirping merrily

garden of roses

hues of love.

~

Breath of spring

blow cool

and gentle breeze

smiling sunshine

days upon the earth

budding buds

of growth in season

sweet music

of dreams.

 

 

 

The Green Green Hills

Winding road

leading to

rich pastoral country town

called Peppermint.

~

The bustling crowd

at the market place

chattering and mingling

excitement fills the air.

~

An auction is

about to begin

the auctioneer calls

for attention

silence all at once

the sheep were brought in.

~

Market produce

locally grown

fresh succulent vegetables

a variety of fruits

people pick and choose.

~

Peppermint green hills

lush and tranquil country

quaint charming cottages

cobbled streets

tree lined avenues

reminiscent of yesteryear.

Pleasures Of Imagination

I gaze at the dancing waves

and swaying palms

bliss of joy and pleasure

inspires the imagination.

~

Sand pristine

fine and golden

never ending beach

where the sparkling waves

twinkle in the sun.

~

Beside the cove

beneath the casuarina trees

whistling birds

the red hibiscus

flutter in the breeze.

Let’s Get Together

Inspire, challenge

new chapter

opportunities

waiting to unfold.

Rhythm Of Life

The foliage

of autumn’s

bronze and gold

raindrop showers

songbirds harmonise

the rhapsody of love.

~

Flowers glistening

in the rain

dancing, swaying

to the breeze

the world’s delight.

~

Crystal clear stream

flowing gently

rippling

sounds of nature’s

evergreen

rhythm of life.
