On earth
The greatest achievement in the world on earth
Is to be able to love one and all
And one of the amazing things in life is new birth
And simply watching a waterfall
To see the stars twinkle at night
Is quite amazing
When the moon is bright
And the spirit is rising
In a beautiful world like ours
Just imagine the dark
And just spending the hours
Making your mark
In the world

Someone bit the moon
The moon wasn’t quite complete this morning!
Six am when the day was dawning!
It was missing its bottom bit
As I looked right up at it
It wasn’t even a crescent
I don’t think it was bitten by a pheasant
A pheasant is just too pleasant
It could have been a gull
You know they’re never full
It could have been a swallow
Their little mouths are hollow
I think it was hit by a spaceship
When it’s driver was having a kip!

This Morning
A chilly morning at 6 am
Off for a walk after REM
Not quite awake yet
But At least it’s not wet
There’s a nip in the air
no I haven’t done my hair
Thrown on a t shirt and a pair of shorts
On the fashion rating I’d get all noughts
My dog decides our route
Ok so she is so very cute
Ninety minutes we have walked
Yes in silence I haven’t talked
Home ward bound now
Dog on tow
When we’re back I just know
She will fall asleep, way to go!
Not everything is perfect in this world
And sometime ago
Like most others there have been times
I didn’t want to be here
I thought of jumping off the cliffs
Into the sea
I couldn’t do it Because that would be me
I have a daughter and a son
They kept me alive!

Peaceful and quiet
Peaceful and Quiet A sheer delight!
It’s so peaceful and quiet here
at Sleights in Yorkshire,
I’m winding down like a clockwork orange as it peals away the stress of life!
A visit to the coast is nice
Just to see the sea swish swash up the rocks and onto the beach,
And the air is fresh and clean!
The sound and the smell of the sea to me is a treat to the senses!
And back at Sleights the steam train passes and peeps as it goes!
The beautiful big old trees, elm ash, birch and oak stand proud in the grounds tall and poised!
The plants and flowers are so pretty and bright they smell so beautiful especially at night!
The atmosphere here is surely heaven!
A sumptuous place even better than Devon!
I was inspired in September when we went to stay at my friends flat near Whitby

Words only words
Words are so powerful they can lift you up,
Like a half filled cup!
Sometimes words can drag you right down,
Like a half empty mug!
That’s when you need a hug!

The beauty of animals
Those beautiful lions show so much love to each other like sunshine and warmth!
They support each other with their love,
A mother ape feeding her young despite her strength she’s so gentle to her baby!
She cares about her family,
An elephant gives birth to her baby and she waits patiently for her baby to get up and feed,
She knows that’s what she has to do because her love is true!

Time is passing by!
Time goes round and round
The blackberries are slowly coming out again
Soon it will be time to pick them
The cherry blossom has come and is blooming well
summer is on its way
But the sun is in and out
And the rain is back
The  frost has gone
The world is revolving
Time is passing by!

The ageing process is happening to me,
The wrinkles are coming
So I can see,
Everything is heading south!
Including my eyes, nose and mouth,
The double chin,
Well that could do with a pin!
The belly needs a tuck,
Or even a lipo ****!
But it’s the aches and pains,
The varicose veins ,
Thank fully I’ve Not got yet,
I sweat!
I need more sleep!
Or I’m in a heap,
I’m always tired
My brain is becoming unwired!
At times!

Where does time go?
Where does time do, I don’t really know?
It’s flown away like a bird in the wind!
Why does time not last?
It goes so very fast!
It’s now here!
And Then
It’s gone!

A Sandwich delight
A sandwich of delight!
You take a bite
And move it around your mouth  and chew
And as the butter,  the ham and the soft seeded bread hits your senses,
A whirlwind of texture,
A taste of delecture,
And then you swallow
and it is gone,
Ok I’ll just have another one!

Sun in the morning
The sun was out this morning
Twinkling through the trees
Peeping at me and warning
That the rain is on its way today
enjoy the sun while the day is dawning
But it was cold and the wind was blowing
And all of this had me yawning
So after our long long walk
Im on my way back home and back to bed !

Jack frost
I love Jack Frost
He’s cool
He’s kind
He’s cold
He’s Refined

He twinkles on the pavement
Glistening and listening
cold but fresh
But I’m not nesh!

I love Jack Frost
He’s cool
He’s kind
He’s cold
He’s refined!

He kills the bugs
That we don’t want
By freezing them
And seizing them away

I love lack frost
Jack Frost is welcome most any day!

The moon shines down onto the lake
Your smile takes away my every ache
The honey bee buzzes collecting pollen from the flowers
I sat watching them for hours and hours!

The rain falls down upon the deep green leaves
And as you look into my desiring eyes
The beautiful birds sing with glee
As you float in my dream as far as I can see!

Please don’t ever leave me
If you do I will miss you
And one day you'll find me in heaven
And we’ll be together for all eternity !
Inspired by Imran thank you 💕🌺💕

The Blossom is out
I’ve been waiting and waiting
For the pink cherry blossom tree
To bloom for me
All the other blossom trees
Are a floral delight
Then just overnight
My blossom tree bloomed
Pretty pink flowers have at last loomed
late I know
But they’re beginning to show
What a beautiful sight
My cherry blossom delight!

The pain in my neck
The fatigue
I need a break

I keep on going
Never slowing
I keep it flowing

I need to slow
But I don’t know how
I go and I go

I sweat
From all the chocolate I ate
Another symptom I bet

I can’t sleep
My cough gets me up
When I sleep deep

I want to retire and write
Even in the middle of the night
It would be a sheer delight!!!!!!
I can’t wait for retirement so I can spend more time writing poetry! Sad to wish ones life away at 62!  Five years to retirement !!!!!!!

Nearly May
The morning light after the dark long night
And the fresh morning air blowing in my hair
Is a beautiful feeling
The pleasure I’m stealing
Up with the lark
And down to the park
Birds singing their hearts out
Such beauty without a doubt
A good start to the day
Better weather on its way
As the sun shines down on me
It’s beautiful to see
The flowers coming out
nature so devout
It’s another beautiful day
And it’s now nearly May!

When I’m gone
When I am gone from this world
Remember me as a poet
I know I’ll be whirled
Into space as we know it!

Please don’t be sad
I’ve enjoyed the life that I’ve had!

People have died and are still dying
Of covid we're crying
But people are still dying of cancer
well there is no answer
It’s sad but true
No matter what we do
We’re not immortal
Sadly eventually we all have to go to the portal!
The portal of mortality!

so cold
The frost was glistening on the ground
this morning
like lots of little coloured stars all around
the air was very cold
it was silent, there was not a sound
Icy cold but the sun was shining
after our walk we were homeward bound
to warm and cuddle up all cosy
Back to bed with my hound!

The stars
I always wondered about those twinkley stars
Up in the sky between us and Mars
I truely really believe
When we die we sit upon a star
They say right now they may not exist
They’re dead and gone beyond the mist

But when you look up to the sky
You’ll see those stars all twinkling by
A universe out there up high
That I believe is there but why

The beauty we can see up there
Up in a midnight super sky
What is it I have to Pry
The wonder of the dark night sky!

Everything on Earth
Everything on earth is moving
Including you and me
It’s time that keeps molecules together
As far as I can see
Solid ground beneath our feet is all an illusion to you and me
That’s how it has to be
But when it all crumbles or erupts
Like a volcano or an earth quake
The particles you can see
Diffuse and even shatter
And we get hidden in the walls
There’s may be a parallel universe
Moving in a different time and space!
Sadly we have to face!
So much for the human race!

Everyone Matters
Everyone matters
No matter who they are
We all come into this world
With nothing
And we leave this life too with nothing
We are all the same as each other
Our skeletons certainly are
We’re all flesh and blood
Our blood is red
And when we’re dead
We’re gone either buried or cremated
Ashes to ashes we’re gone
But our spirit lives on and on!
So come on all ye together
And live in peace
Love each other
Be kind
Because everyone matters
We’ve got to stick together
And put our woes behind!
“Love your neighbour as yourself! “

I only wish
I wish the world would be free
And black and white unite
And simply let life be
And not have to fight

We are the only species on earth
That pray upon each other
From when we come in birth
To when we leave our mother

So stop right now
And think
We should all just vow
To put it all in ink

And make every effort
To live together in peace
Before all our lives just cease
From foes and fights and disease!

Positive !

Say something nice
To someone

Snuggle up
Come snuggle up with me tonight
And I can stroke your velvet hair
Together we will be alright
We will breathe in the air that we share
We’ll snug up nice and tight
And sleep all snug through the night!

Little noises
Little noises that they make!
But they do not wake
When they are all curled up asleep
probably when they’re sleeping deep
The cat wheezes and sometimes snores
You hear her through the open doors
The dog has what I suppose are dreams
And cutely yelps it seems
Her little legs twitching
She’s running or she’s itching
But still she stays asleep
And still she doesn’t peep!
Those beautiful little noises
Are like a bunch of red roses!
The love ❤️

To write
Is a sheer delight

To see
Is a gift To me

To breathe
Is a relief

To be alive
Is an honour just To survive

Poetry is my love
With thanks to God above!
Thank you God!
I feel guilty when I leave you
It’s what I have to do
To go up on my way
I travel to work one day
The next day I return, coming back to you!
On ward Home I do!

I don’t like leaving you
Years to go are few
But as I’m not retired yet
The work is there and I am set
To full fill my working days
And then in time I’ll retire and laze!

And spend all my days with you!

It’s windy
The wind gusts and roars
Banging at the doors
Tree branches swinging
What’s the wind bringing
Gates open with force
From a gush of course
The washing is off the line
Hey that’s mine
and it’s off down the road
I’m blowed!!!!!!
Apr 2021 · 242
Because I love you
We snuggle up
We cuddle
I kiss you
You lick my face
You know how I’m feeling
As I do you
You’re faithful and endearing
Because I love you!

You’re in my heart
And in my soul
A soul mate
A best friend forever
Because I love you!
Moose is my beautiful poochon! I love her with all my heart and soul!

The cutting wind
Stings my face
Despite all that,
out walking is ace
Sod the weather
I do it with grace
I love to walk
No matter what
Rain or shine
What ever we’ve got
I’m out and about
Using the feet I’ve got
Keeping my blood flowing
And my face glowing!
I’m out every day
As long as I may!

Wow it’s Snow
Wow it’s snow
Out through the door at 6 am
Walkies time and off we go
Only to meet a mini blizzard

The little white flakes
Blew in my face
So so cold they were not fakes
It’s April for goodness sake

I know the forecast said it would
I didn’t quite believe
Now I know I should
The snow came down

Bit it didn’t stick!!!!!!

The Seasons are changing
The seasons are changing
The air was cool this morning
But the sun began to shine
It’s coming Spring now
And it is really quite divine
The subtle smell of scent
From the flowers and trees so fine
Was really quite endearing
Spring its way
I think this is the sign!

The power of passion
Love can do amazing things
But love can ****
Those angel wings

Passion can be painful
Passion can hurt
Passion can ****
Passion can be Curt

But passion with love
With a blessing from above
With peace and pleasure
Is the right kind of measure!

So use your passion well
Keep your passion honest
And you surely will
Reap your passion well!

From your inspiration
You inspire me
With your emotive words of wisdom
You are the key
To my motivation
You help me see
The passion and the pain
Just let it be
Keep up your writing
And your positivity
To all who it is delighting
You surely hold the key!
With love to you from me!
Inspired by Imran! Thank you my darling!  You’ll find Imran Islam’s  books on Kindle and Amazon and a few of mine too! Love you Imran !

The Origins of Life
The origins of life
Now was it Darwinism or Adam and Eve or could it be an alien who left us to breed?
Any which way we evolved !
Even if we came from a seed!
The real question is did we come from the ashes?
And in time do we go back to the ashes?
And how did we form down from our nose and eye lashes?
The big question is the origins of life?
Where did we come from and where do we go?
I simply can’t tell you because I just don’t know!

Bucket list
On my bucket list
I've often kissed,
This is what I want to do:-
Go to America with all of you,
Go on a cruise again and again!
Down the Danube or the Seine,
Sing a song and not make it rain!
Fly a helicopter or a plane!
Soak in a bath of sweet Chanel!
Boy how pretty I would smell!
I guess there's more
Dance the tango on the floor!
Swim in the lakes
Make some pretty yummy cakes
And skinny dip in the sea
I think that's it, and this is me!

I burp, and say pardon
I pass wind in the garden
We all have wind
But it is the dog who I blame
We all do it I claim
Wind in the willows
Wind from the gut
Let your wind flow
Wherever you go!
I stopped to hear
something so very dear,
birds singing in the trees!
It was sure to please!
Champagne to my ears!
The sound brought me to tears,
Happy tears.
It was so uplifting and something so wonderful!
To hear those birds sing so sincere and so very dutiful!

Snow is falling
The scene is calling
As I watch from my window seat
Having a cuppa and something to eat
The snow is deliciously delightful
The sky is an eye full
The silence it gives off is amazing
It brings a calm and cool atmosphere it’s dazing
The snow slows everything down
There’s such beauty all around
Peaceful and quiet
Bright and so white
The white ****** snow is a sheer delight!
Doesn’t matter day or night!
It lights the sky
So bright to the eye!
Little white flakes falling
Different sizes and shapes
Put on your coats and capes
Your wellies and your drapes
And make a snowman ⛄️
Before it melts!
I do love the snow! I remember such fun as a child each year making snowmen and having cold wet hand so much fun and so beautiful but cold so cold!

The Snow
The Snow
I know!
Snow is falling

It brings a calm and cool atmosphere it’s dazing
That slows everything down
There’s such beauty all around
Peaceful and quiet
Bright and so white
A sheer delight!

To believe is a beautiful thing
To have faith in God our king
Helps you through all you do
And for the many or just the few,
Who have credence too,
Helps them cope and gives them hope,
Helps them down the path of life,
Holds back the toll and strife,
Gives you something to believe in,
Helps you live within your skin,
And evade any mortal sin,
Then in life you will win!
Don’t throw your life into the bin,
Credence choice and now begin!

Walkies in the rain
Walkie’s in the rain!
It’s a cold wet morning today
But we’ve got to go out anyway
As the cold bites my finger tips
And the rain comes down in heavy drips
It’s profusely raining
And the large puddles just aren’t draining
And as we walk we’re getting wetter
Wishing the weather was a little better
Around the block
Beating the clock
Homeward bound
Feeling half drowned
And back to bed
All snuggled up to rest my head!
Jan 2021 · 111
It’s black out there
It’s black out there tonight
Just like smooth black velvet
The dark is sharp and the air is clear
The night is crisp and cold out there
Nothing can be seen but a blackness
A Nothingness, no more, no less!
It’s black out there!
Jan 2021 · 105
A quiet clear sky
A quiet Clear sky
It’s dark like black velvet
The stars are shining bright and clear as they can get
The moon is full like in the night
The ground is glistening silver and white
There’s ice on the ground
It’s quiet there’s no sound
Six in the morning
We’re out walking
Keep quiet don’t say a word
Keep it peaceful and Undisturbed!

But Why ?
Why does the sky have to cry
With tears falling
To the ground
As the sky does weep
In floods of tears
So it appears
As the floods get deep
then the clouds go to sleep
The floods then subside
And out comes the sun smiling
With laughter and fun
Drying up the tears
That were shed from the clouds
That they’d welled up for years
And they all put on a happy face
With sun shining
It’s a beautiful place.

Hello I’ve been looking for you
I don’t know where you’ve been
And I am not knowing
Where you are going
Or what you want to do
But you are to me my child
I am with that beguiled
A mother can only guide
And support you by your side!
Sunday morning
And the day is now dawning
Up in the snow with Moose
It’s dark and cold out there
And I surely know
The pavement is slippery
So I walk on the grass
Wondering if we should turn around and go back
But alas
We went to the field
And had a lovely big run
Moose’s best friend was there
And they sure did have some fun
They ran and ran playing chase
Having fun having a jump and a hop
Then we were off to the shop
To get a paper for my man
Back home for a cup of hot milk and a gammon and mustard sandwich
And Back to bed while I can!
