I write what I feel…




Clouds as light as air

Sail across the sky,

Voyagers of discovery

As in years gone by.


Whispers of pink appear,

Murmurs of lilac too,

Gold and silver highlights,

Lowlights of purplish-blue.


Farewell you travellers

Way up on high, adieu;

I wish you a safe journey,

As you fade into the blue.


NB – One of my favourite poets is back here.  Enjoy!

Who would have dreamt that I would find

A love like yours, so sweet and kind,

As gentle as the morning rays,

I bask in the sunlight of your gaze.


The walls I built you’re taking down,

And my defences are breaking down.

For twenty years I’ve stood alone –

Twenty years all on my own.


And now I feel there’s time for us,

If we can just restore my trust

With faith and hope and honesty

I don’t need any guarantee

Dusk in Africa


The calm of the jungle at dusk,

The soft sounds of creatures

Returning from the waterhole, spent:

Crackling branches, bodies brushing

Against dry bushes as they went.


Silence descended slowly as night fell.

We sat relaxed around the fire,

At ease in the surrounding peace,

Sipping our after-dinner drinks

And dreaming of the morrow.



RROOAARR!  The second, a demanding bellow

Then a series of grunts to follow:

GRUNT, GRUNT, grunt, grunt, g r u n t…

Fading slowly until dead…

Silence dropped heavily back in the hollow

And we all retreated to bed.

Give and Take


As the rosebud slowly opens

In the warm rays of the sun

She proudly displays

To the admiring gaze

Of everyone looking on


But the kindly sun who gave her life

Is the self-same sun to cause her death

And her rich colour wanes

While he sucks dry her veins

Until she exhales her last breath

Black Velvet *New


In the black velvet night

Stars look ultra bright

No moon in the sky

Just you and I



Under the canopy of light

Facing t’wards the east


For the first rays of the sun

A new day has begun

A new world still to come


Must have been a ‘bug’ – Sorry!

My Head, My Brain, My Mind


My head says one thing,

But I can’t make up my mind.

My brain tells me, ‘No’,

But my mind cannot decide.


There is no unity between the three,

They all seem doomed to disagree.

‘Mind over matter’, or so the saying goes,

So, what’s the matter with my mind?


‘Out of sight, out of mind’ is another,

So tell me, my brother,

Is it possible to leave my mind behind

And thus be out of my mind?


I can lose my mind or lose my head

But if I lost my brain, I would be dead.
