Not again.!!
It's been six months
Still this virus is driving us right around the bend
With track and trace .
When you sit in for a meal.

Still most people haven't got a clue what to do.
Some like ignoring the rules
Custer cases
Death and dark ages

Too steps forward .
Too backwards.
More restrictions
Local lockdowns
Added frustration.

Spring and summer
Almost over
Doom
And
Gloom.
Winters is around the corner.

What can we do
accept this rule
Or two.
Grin and bear it
like all of us.
When will there be a gimplse of hope
When the virus is dead and gone.!

One of a kind
I see a story one of love.
Inspiration of dreams one from afar
I see hope for a better future
One of complete satisfaction
I see a driven person
Seeking expectations
I see a reaction of contentment.
I see a very a beautiful person with a very special heart.

Staying safe
Lockdown blues
Locked in some bad habits
Late nights
Lazy days
Followed by
Junk food.

Lockdown blues
Left me
Feeling lonely
In a hopeless situation.
Craving sugar
Gaining weight

Lockdown blues
Held me prisoner
in my mind
Also invaded my thoughts
It invited illusions.
fear of the unknown

Lockdown ease
Had me relax with ease
It gave me hope
In the midst through the storm.
It made me jump for joy.
A last I could be free .
One day at a time.
Please ūü•ļ
Don't ever put me through that again.

Mental health
Dark* shadows
Invade 
I didn't invite you
You invited you
I wish to be alone
My  emotions belong here
Beside me.
You see
They are me.
They run cold
Vibes
Deep
Embedded
The pain reacts to poison
Leaving unsovled
Matters
I  wish not to lie on a bed of self-pity
But my head is mash
Its confused.
Utterly
Disillusioned.
(Alone)
And sad.
Aug 21 · 155
Free
Every breath, I breathed
Struggles to sail in the cool sunrise morn
silent cries
Fails to reach those anxious thoughts
Memories are hidden
Stored  away  
Beneath a broken heart
I lie here bewildered
I feel nothing
The things that used to be.
Are no more.
I crave yesterday
Like a lost vision
uncertainty
Everyday
Life
enjoyable
I long for the life I once knew .
Until then I sit
and wait
I wait .

Escape goat .
I am just a pushover
I let family run rings around me
Iam  just soft
For my own good.
I feel taken for granted
Not worthy
Or appreciated.
I feel so lonely and sad.

Cruel remarks
Think before you speak
unless you regret it later

Words are powerful
They either build up
Or destroy.
Aug 4 · 209
Tribulations
Dark is the hour
Shattered windows
Moonnight tears
Covered up faces
Fighting back frustration
Track and trace
Isn't an option
It a command
Like a government plan
Crashing economic ground
Family's left reeling
without hope or reconnecting
Children's education forgotten
No plan
To Reunite false hope
Withers a storm of season  cradled by the sea.
Children drowning
Life becomes hulunation
Virus silences the nation.
Lack of pity
With little empathy.
People loose heart
Become drawn apart
World leaves in fear
Because of new episodes
Mountains rages
with burnt out favours
News
And
Politics are ***** to the core
It must take back control

Who knows what tomorrow will bring.
But just now I won't give up hope .
I hang on tight to God's promises with all my might .
Fighting until the end .
I will master a plan.

Warning
I spoke to you all a while back
I whispered some secrets in your ear.
But  those whispers  left
Ignored
They fell on deaf ears
I sent clouds thunder storms
¬†lightening,  with my name above
Still you haven't seen the light.
My tears Fill endless buckets.
Of empty souls
That are left crying out for mercy.
But now the trumpets sound
And scores of panic are heard from people near and far.
Judgement has begun
Nothing
Will ever be the same.
My life is in your hands.
Suddenly
I awoke from a vivid dream
I knew I had been given another chance.
Of  wiping the slate clean.
What if
This wasn't a dream what if it was the here and now.
I dread to think if I wasnt right with my maker.
At last i looked into the mirror
Only to see
Reality.

Bucket list
You see I am afraid
Of reaching the end
I am afraid of dying
Without doing the things I need to do
I need to fulfill
Dreams
Leave a legacy of love
Change lives
Make a difference.
Wether it is through my poems
I need to do something
to reach all mankind
Make the world a better place to live .

Be careful
What we watch read and listen to especially before bed plays havoc
in our minds
Also Feeds our heart .
My husband is an example of this.reading crime stories before bed apparently to wake up with heart palpitations for no reason.but he often reads disturbing crime stories I guess if we put cabbage in it also has to come back out .

Stranger within.
I look into your drawn eyes
I realise the tired
Person you have become
You ask me who iam
Why have you come.
I can't fight back the tears
You are a shadow of dull personality
As distant memory of  the past.
There  is no *future
it's gone
Let's face it
You have gone
I don't know you.
I did .
What happened to your sense of humour.
It's died with you
I miss you *Dad


I  cry tears of sadness
For the dad I once knew.
Lost in a body
One in soul
Your spirit will move on
To a better place beyond
Oh dark is the soul
Without God
Tread carefully
with a clean heart.
Better late than never.
Oh how I miss you Dear Dad

I am a rare we bird
Look after its brood

Smile from within.

Not been myself  of late
The person I used to be.
The person I am now
Not sure what to expect
At first I walked in fear
Afraid to do what I used to do
I gradually began taking baby's steps
Doing the things I used to do.
But suddenly the normality
Feels weird
Perhaps even strange .
Not sure what I want out of life  
But I know I don't want to go back to the old way of living.

Beyond the darkness .
Sometimes it is hard to see the colour's in the rainbow.
Because the other side
there is a light.
That never fades away.
Don't give up on life
God has got this
You are a stronger person
Because God wants you to reach to the other side of the rainbow.
Were the ‚õÖ sun shines on a *** of hope.
In theses days of of frustration
Lost of business
A loved one .
Coronavirus  has shattered our lives .
Remember this God is waiting
For our reaction.
To this whole thing .
Never like before have I held on to my faith .
Things are about to change
It isn't like before .
Life will be different
But with God it is the same.
God doesn't change
He is the same today.

Cannot see my true light
They are blinded
Confused
They walk in darkness
Has hell begun on earth.
Is this a glimpse of reality
If this is a part of hell

Looking inward.
I never felt so calm
As I entered the rose garden
The vibrant exotic colours
The shapes
The smell of perfume
Enchanting
inviting
To a quiet place of
Tranquillity.
A moment of contentment
Lost in wonder
The beauty
But the outward beauty of nature
Temporary
Short lived
It reminded me of  a lasting beauty
One on the inside.
Created by Gods perfect clay.
After all God made us.
To be in the likeness of his image.
Sometimes that inward beauty can be dented
by our impulsive behaviour
That's why God reminds us to to be in the world  
yet not of it.
If  we are in Christ the old nature as ceased and the new one has just begun.

Remember  me the poppy sighs
I grow amongst the hard ground.
Waiting to bloom into the most enchanting red colour
They hurt me
Trampled on me
Broke me
Tore my delicate petals out.
I live no more
in a shady cool spot
My seeds lie dormat
Rooted
Beneath the ground.
until next spring
My roots break forth with *life

Once again my petals open up
with a new song.
Beautiful *glorious

Rise and shine my beloved

Beautifully she shone from a vibrant red rose.
The perfume of a lily
Her eyes sparkled like the evening stars.
Her smile wilder than the ocean.
Her hair
her feet .
Resembled a longing for love
She had the most beautiful eyes.
But they told a sad secret
Of slavery upon her brow.
Alas her dream was about to unfold
Happy ever after

Mr ketchup's Dark moment
One cold December morning . Mr Ketchup felt the urge to leap out of bed quickly.
But today was rather a special day his wedding day. Mr Ketchup
was very determined not to ruin his big day.  Or so he thought.
Mr ketchup busied  himself in the kitchen making breakfast.( Boom !! -- the whole house was in darkness . Oh bother he mumbled Mr Ketchup. This wasn't  happening  but it was.
He frantically searched through drawers and cupboards. For a torch at last he thought  he pulled out a weird looking candle.
"Oh , well he thought to himself this candle will do the job for now. But poor Mr Ketchup hadn't any lighters.
Oh what a nuisance I haven't time to trip down to Haggis house. As you can imagine Mr Ketchup vowed nothing would get in his way and ruin his big day. He quickly pulled out his crumpled blue coat and off he trotted to haggis house. Quickly he ran down the road puffing and panting. At last he thought arriving at haggis front rusty door.
Bang bang. Thud crash Oh dear Mr Ketchup hadn't noticed  the trash can. Oh my Goodness me he went for a sixer landing head first in the fish stew.
"Mr Ketchup," are you okay."?
"No he replied. " looking dazed.
"There let me", help you said Haggis."
Mr Ketchup had made a quick recovery and explained to Haggis about his dark moment.  Haggis was able to save the day.
And gave him a lighter . He even had a torch .
Mr Ketchup finished the last of his tea and said I need to get cracking. You jump into the shower upstairs what a horrible start to the day. I pop down to your house and fix the fuse box.
Collect your suit for your wedding .Mr Ketchup hurried  upstairs for a shower. He pulled back the curtain to find a big hairy spider. He loomed liked he'd met with a ghostly face.
Oh how he hated spiders at least of all hairy ones. I am not getting into the shower with that thing. He snapped
I just give myself a scrub down in the kitchen sink. Off he went downstairs to finish the job. When suddenly all the lights went BOOM. Oh no not again cried Mr Ketchup. That's torn it now.
I never be on time for my wedding. Poor sweet potato face will think I have abandoned her.
What ever shall I do now.
Just then the door slammed behind Haggis.
"I am glad that's over and done."
"You, are back mumbled. Mr Ketchup?"
"Oh, not again." Trouble just follows you everywhere."
The time was racing by they were both in need of a shower.
Red pepper knocked at the door. And asked them if she could help.
They raced back to her house in her old banger.
Soon they were all smart and ready to go.
Soon the big rover arrived to take Mr Ketchup and Haggis tothe church. At least for the time being .
Well I am not so sure. !

Rebirthed.
Spring is a season for something new leaving the old .
A challenge of changing our characters.
Spring drives me further
to complete unfinished
business of endless tasks.
Spring motivates me
pushes me forward to be the person I have always strived to be.
But struggled with Identity.
Spring is a new day dawning.
A Ray of hope of yearning
Spring is the sound of birds chirping.
Quiet little buds blooming
Spring  is inviting enchanting and exciting.

Mr Ketchup's new mask ..
Mr Ketchup  struggled to get out of bed . He hardly slept a wink .
Cough cough into the early hours of the morning. He found it difficult to breath.  "Oh Sweet potato face I  don't feel so well." "Poor you ,we will just have to keep an eye on you."  
"Okay," he coughed.
"Hurry along now, my dear ketchup  I will fetch you a hot water bottle ..and your favourite comic the Beano"
Mr Ketchup hated being so unwell He always liked being on the go .
And now he had the coravirvus ..he felt so miserable. He had to self-isloate  for seven days .and his wife.for an extended  period of Fourteen days. This was most annoying, he had plans to  do things ..but most of his plans were grinded to s halt because his friends and the  whole town in Butterworth, had to all stay at home .to stop the spread of covid -19 ..Mr Ketchup felt sad he felt so cut off from his friends,
"Oh bother," moaned Mr Ketchup, That wretched coravirvus why could it not disappear for good." But Mr Todd the prime minster made it so clear:! STAY AT HOME
Mr Ketchup didn't like being told what to do, but this time things were different.  He couldn't break the law after all.  All his friends were law abiding .
"Oh well," he sighed at cat.
coughing again. the cat ran upstairs for its life.
Poor Mr Ketchup.
Sweet potato face made some masks on her sewing machine.
Mr Ketchup faced turned red.
" Hope you don't think I am about to wear one of those things.?"
"Oh Ketchup dear, don't be awkward!."
" Huh who's being awkward dear!."

"Well stop. Being difficult Ketchup."
Mr Ketchup turned away feeling annoyed. He walked away and shut himself in his room.
And wondered why on earth should he wear a mask.¬†¬†As he had time to ponder he realised  his behaviour was childish. He decided to give it a go .
Actually wasn't that bad.  He tried his mask on and laughed and laughed ..
"Oh no, not another three weeks lock down!" moaned Mr Ketchup.
"Twenty more days in the dog house.
I have reached the ripe old age of seventy plus seven.
Oh Tabby, what ever shall I do now?" sighed, Mr Ketchup.
His friends  were really worried about him lately he had a very dry cough and his face looked red as a beetroot.
He certainly  looked  a bit under the weather. It meant that he now had to stay indoors to stay safe.
Nothing else for it Mr Ketchup¬†¬†was used to being out, he loved to galavant all over the place. Shops were he liked to go.¬†¬†His belly would rumble¬†¬†loudly and off he went to the cafe. He couldn't be bothered to cook. Mr Ketchup didn't¬†¬†like washing up. He often got scolded for leaving heaps of ***** dishes in the sink. As for trash¬†¬†can it smelt like rotten eggs. Upstairs¬†¬†in cupboards¬†¬†were stacked all topsy turvy.  Everything came flying out all over the floor. Washing piled high. Complete and utter chaos. Poor Mr Ketchup he really got himself into some muddles.
Mr Ketchup  felt a bit peckish off he went to the cupboard.
he sighed old mother Hubbard went to the cupboard¬†¬†and it was bare. He opened the fridge and a ghastly smell of soured milk filled his nostles. "Puke,"  he thought. until he lifted the bread bin, lay mouldy old bread.¬†¬† "That's torn it now," he thought, "I haven't a thing to eat but porridge and I hate it."

Picking up the the phone he dailed his friend .
"Haggis, I am in a bit of a pickle. I need you to go shopping for me please."
"Okay." Ketchup  replied Haggis."
"My bread has gone mouldy and the milk is sour." coughed Ketchup."
So off he trotted to the kitchen to look for a
scrap of paper and a pen. But to his dismay he couldn't find anything to write with. He tried a drawer, it was jammed tight. He heaved so hard that the drawer came off its hingles.
Mr Ketchup went flying up in the air and landed right on the trash can.
Poor Mr Ketchup he looked like the cats dinner he smelt awful a bit like fish stew.
Oh fiddle sticks why does everything go wrong.
Cough cough he splutted all over his cat. The poor thing ran for its life.
Mr Ketchup slowly recovered from his fall he scrambled to another draw near by he wasn't in the mood for anymore mishaps. Mr Ketchup scribbled a long list of shopping  in bright red lipstick  but Oh dearie me it sounded like a lot of Gobbledygook.  Moments later Haggis appeared and looked puzzled.
"What ever has happened to you?"
"Nothing!" snapped Ketchup."
Mr Ketchup  couldn't help but notice the expression on his friend's face.
He went indoors slamming the door shut.
It was the worst day of his life and now he wasn't looking forward to more weeks of the lock down .off he went trotted up the stairs to the bathroom.
Oh dearie me the day hadn't ended it had only just begun.


Mr Ketchup  slowly dragged  himself  upstairs put the plug in the bath leaving it to fill up.
Something caught his attention. Mr Ketchup became distracted.  He started sorting out his clothes, but O dear they had peculiar holes in them.  He pulled out his favourite pair of tartan trousers.  "Oh crumbs what has happened to my trousers.
Eeek!"
Well as you can imagine it wasn't  a pretty  site.
The moths  made a right meal of Mr ketchup's trousers.
He wasn't amused. He was annoyed.  Mr Ketchup tided his clothes away .
hurried into the bathroom to find his bath had gone very cold..
Oh Mr Ketchup what are we going to do with you!
Mr ketchup has several friendships and is a funny and awkward character at times he often gets himself into muddles sometimes requires  the help from his friends.  Haggis Neaps his wife Sweetheart  Sweet potato face. also Ruby The Rude Raspberry. His cousin mr chips his uncle and Tornface tomato.

What happened .!
Our world has changed
The things we trusted in are gone
The hugs we took for granted are no more.
Our world has
changed.
Our economy bust we put our hope and trust in theses things .
And what is left .
We are left with fear disappointment.
We never thought that this could happen .
I never thought that this could happen.
What if in the midst of theses things we could find peace
God never changes he stays the same yesterday today and forever.
You can put your trust in God .
In midst of adversity.
Lord open up my heart to receive your ever unchanging grace and love..and peace

Rest Assured
Many roads have I have wandered
Unsure of the path I was about take
A journey into uncertainty
one I thought which I wouldn't of encountered..
fearing every breath.
An atmosphere of dread even death
I wake up each morning
Thinking what will befall me.

Then I think  to myself .
Nothing can and will
Seperate us from the love of God.
Know matter what happens .
We can rest ourselves in the arms of Jesus.
Even though I walk in the valley of the shadow of death I shall fear no evil.
For thou art with me .
I know in my heart that God has a very special plan for my life..
I smile gazing at the blue skies
THANKYOU God.
