Hush Now …

My love

quiet is the night

luminous jewels

sparkling brilliantly

heavenly gems

glowing moonlight

love’s music.

The Magic Of Autumn

The rustling leaves

of season’s colour

The rustic shades

of crimson and gold

When sunrise shone

in wondrous splendour

the wind rustled

to a thousand violins

awakening harmony

charm of autumn’s beauty

in gold and blue

that glorious morn

that magic of autumn.

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.

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.

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.

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 …

Being Meaningful

Our attitude

towards life

its challenges

expanding focus

beyond self

strengthen another.

Splendour In The Park

One September morn

gliding on the lake

a swan so fine

as graceful as

the birds that soar

twittering songs of spring

when at a glance

thousands of jonquils

swaying and dancing

fluttering in the breeze

I saw

spring’s glorious splendour

such joy and pleasure

my heart sings

O what a beautiful morning…

Waltzing In The Moonlight

The crescent moon shines

over the rippling waters

softly the waves dance

a moonlight waltz.

Panache

Love is like

a violin

as the strings

begin to play

sweetest melodies

of love

on a day

like today.

~

Love is like

a violin

for a thousand melodies

and the music

of your heart

and the music

of your heart

plays on.

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 …

What’s Percolating

Morning bustle

Marketplace arcade

Unique bookshops

Quirky cafés

Everyday reflections

People interacting

over a cuppa

Grasping moments … life.

Love Divine

If I could write

and consider the joy

of summer’s flower

rose’s honey breath

sweet lavender

awakening the bliss of Love

~

Of boundless seas

and stars stringing the milky way

sparkling the night

like the morning star’s

eternal Light.

~

As Love and Light

shall together thrive

such heavenly gifts

so divinely excel

inward love of heart.

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.

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.
