Let’s Go Alfresco

Iris@poetsmith

To the trattoria

by the river

the harbour’s

bustling nightlife

restaurants galore

cosmopolitan cuisine

~

Just sipping

a café latte

or savouring

a wood oven pizza

watching

the world go by!

~

Across the harbour

the bridge

brightly lighted up

and the view

of the magnificent

Opera House

catches the eye!!!

~

The summer night

full of life

starry sky

moonlit

reflections on the river

lovers stroll

holding hands

dreams are made of this.

Echoes Of Love

Vast, vast as the ocean

high as the heavens above

Stars twinkling brilliantly

all is still

Silent is the night

Imagine …

the beauty all around

and the music of the sea

the music of the sea

echoes love.

Magic Sails

I watched the red sails

out on the ocean

in the warm glow

of the fading sun

soft ripples

glistening waters dance lightly

like ballerinas nimble

tiptoeing the ballet

Magic Flute

pirouetting, twirling

something dreamy

magical tranquility.

Melody Of Love

Gentle rain

caress the leaves

Summer rose

sweetly perfumed

Birds merrily chirping

a song of tenderness.

Rainforest Canopy

Sunlight shimmered

across rippling waters

The towering redwood trees

by the mountain lake

Small but cosy cabins

Nature hikes

Picnic by the falls

or a swim

Picturesque views of

the Yarra Valley

Campsites nestled amongst

the rainforest reserve

Beautiful variety of wildlife

birds and trees, native flowers

It’s summer magic!

Room To Grow

Love

Hope

Grace

A Taste Of Magic

The haloed moon

moonbeams shining

silence of the night

starry, starry sky

the music of gentle waves

echo a serenade lullaby.

Way Of Thinking

Focus on the prize

at all times

The prize is

freedom from …

to overcome.

O’ Night Divine

Star of Hope

guiding with Your Grace

touching hearts

candle gleaming

in the silence of the night

Peace and Joy

Love so Divine.

Merry Christmas

Happy Holidays

A Christmas Fantaisie

Beyond The Blue Sky …

And the raindrops

tumble all around

Heaven opens so magically

There’s a rainbow somewhere

beyond the blue sky

There’s sunshine

and bluebirds singing

chiming in the breeze

Bluebells dancing

as the clouds drift away.

Love Is Born

Love is born today

Hope is here to stay

Love and joy abound

Share love all around.

Contemplative Moments

Contemplative Moments

In these momentous times

take the first step

in a challenging world

make a difference

in an act of kindness

motivate the conscience

into positive action

to better understand

and inspire …

another.

Some Enchanted Evening

Bright moonbeams

golden like a smile

on rippling waters shine

this night

Reflections aglow

so enchanting

such a lovely evening

this charming autumn night

cruising on the river.

A Quiet Heart

A quiet confidence

making a difference to

the well-being of others

liberates and builds.

In Sweetest Season

The sunrise wakes

the birds to sing

Let silence set

the world in tune

The buds of spring

sing songs of summer

and how the summer

glowed and shone

a sonnet full of love.

Silence Is Golden

One lone star at night

soon the sky is crowded with

countless scintillating lights

~

Thousands of stars across

the silent night

illuminates brilliantly, sparkling

~

This beautiful heavenly night

and the stillness

how could I forget

this tranquility?

this moment of inspiration.

Let There Be Love

And now you ask

what is your message

your verse and poetry

it is a rainbow

of song and dance

a symphony of love

poetry, rhythm, music …

of pine trees

and the deep, deep sea

syllables

that will dance

pirouette

into dreams

to remind us

of glorious morning

and of promise and hope.

~

Kaleidoscopic visions

and music of

ten thousand violins

to capture

the magic and beauty

of a dazzling night sky

of the works of Creation

unfathomable

incomparable

the poet sings

a song of love and passion

Let there be love …

Glistening In The Rain

Soft morning light

glistening refreshing dewdrops

spring’s seasonal showers

pink boronia gems

chandelier of flora.

Boxed In …

They need space

family relationships

overpowering mother

subdued children

work, life

personal relationships

realistic needs

low self esteem

affecting behaviour

thinking, personality

personal development

fragile

misfits in society …

treat with care and love.
