An Indifferent Sky

Once a field of water

surrounding the bay

Now the fishing trawlers

lie still

A fisherman gaze at

the barren sea

wondering …

what little …

there’s left

~

The village deserted

Haze hovers over the hills

But a moment of beauty

as rain clouds part

the moon peeps

a rainbow of hope

across the indifferent sky

Music Within The Words

The music of life

it seems to me

a paradise where

roses bloom

beside a garden wall

when stars are bright

the nightingale sings

a melody of

love’s refrain

a song at twilight

a symphony of hues

the magic of poetry!

That spark …

The rarity of that moment

like the day

you pick the flowers

in spring

and the air smells of lavender

a vision of your journey

as bright

as the sparkling stars

With these fleeting days

and through the passage of time

the season bursts

beauty of life

awakened

 

For Better, For Worse?

Concrete, steel, glass

Do they inspire?

A greengrocer …

gobbled by modernity

Tall skyscrapers

multi-storied complexes

super megastores

bear testimony

~

A blade of grass

a wildflower

things that pulse

with life

give way

to hearts of mortar

Power And Folly

Three profound words

Consumed by power

A human folly.

A Field Of Dreams

Sunlight filtering

through leafy trees

handcrafted sculptures

the garden café

bustling with life

reminding us that

we are not solitary islands

we meet to catch up

so no matter how

lonely it may appear

you are not alone.

~

Write your words

or speak out loud

like on a stage

a field of dreams

where words are birds

set free from their cage

watch them fly

wings stretched wide

they glide through

the wind in a way

that is just different.

Unquenchable Optimism

The winds play

and dance for joy

solitude

a calm reflection.

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.

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.

Being Meaningful

Our attitude

towards life

its challenges

expanding focus

beyond self

strengthen another.

Rare Moments?

In a complex world

too difficult to understand

in those rare moments

the grains of sand

in the hourglass of time

we may see ourselves

as human, sometimes beautiful

reflecting on life

relevant in a hectic

insular world

striving for excellence

perhaps even perfectionism

sometimes trying

to understand life

all in good time …

And The Ship Sailed On

From a distance

Across the bay

~

Catch a glimpse

Jetty at daybreak

~

Fisherman casting net

Life in motion

~

Island in the sun

Stretches of sand

Shining blue waters.

What’s Percolating

Morning bustle

Marketplace arcade

Unique bookshops

Quirky cafés

Everyday reflections

People interacting

over a cuppa

Grasping moments … life.

Tide Of Times

The tide that overtakes

these times, a future

uncertain as the wild sea …

human folly unfolds

on our news-screens

and yes, and yes …

even from these uncertainties

a new sun will rise …

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.

Alluring Splendour

Life’s journeys

are determined

by the sojourner

Nothing can replace

the allurement of passion

~

Embrace

days of sweet

hours of splendour

Remember, remember

days of love and joy

like the magical rhythm

of an orchestra playing

“Days of wine and roses”

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.

Will You?

Choose to stand still

Behold the miracles

Breathe in the hues

The quiet waters

The lake of tranquility.

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.
