A Tale Of Art

Wonder walls

Chirpy backdrop

Mural street art

Bright hues

The art walk

Public space

Street art versus graffiti

Any difference

in forms of art

or expression?

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!

A Landscape Lost

A fisherman’s wharf

at dawn

basking in the warm glow

of a new day

Vibrant landscape

glimpse of the fishing island

An immense sense

of incredible beauty

or possibility?

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

 

An Unspoken Language

Daybreak

Beauty lies on an unknown beach

Rhythm and echo

A jetty from a distance

The depth of

a dreamy dawn

In your solitude

seeing silence speaking

A Sense Of Mystery

I see

calm waters

silence in

the air

a boat

in the middle

of nowhere

Contemporary Stage

Today’s world

ideas of expression

fashion

music

movies

other media

all clamouring

for self gratification

stardom

riches.

People seeking

meaning of conformity

thoughtful questions

idealistic forms of

consumerism

materialism

reality and talent shows

fame and fortune.

~

Power and control

versus

passion and enthusiasm

talent, creativity

individuality

versus

conformity?

~

Such are realistic

mind provoking thoughts

cognitive skills

working out

critical issues

faced by

both the individual

and wider world.

~

The search

for answers

challenges

confronts

time to consider

these perspectives

aptly portrayed

this contemporary stage

drawing on the audience

senses and thoughts

to connect

to relate

meaningful changes

for a breakthrough?

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.

Way Of Thinking

Focus on the prize

at all times

The prize is

freedom from …

to overcome.

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.

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.

That Autumn Evening

April sings

Gentle sound of rain

on the windowpane

Soft piano jazz

in the still of the night.

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.

A Thought For Humanity

Truth and integrity

liberate

the voice of conscience

Wanderlust

The rainforest

wildflowers and wild birds

They are the miracles

if we choose to

not blindly pass through.

~

Will we choose to wander

never to behold

the beauty

the mundane is

so eager to offer?

~

A world so pristine

awaits on

the tips of our lashes.

Thought Provoking

From each new experience

opportunity presents itself

to be grasped

and realised.

Will You?

Choose to stand still

Behold the miracles

Breathe in the hues

The quiet waters

The lake of tranquility.

Learn To

Recognise difficult circumstances

with a vision

to overcome and

to be resilient.
