I write what I feel…


Bully for You

I can almost speak

I can almost speak


Bully for You


He drew his paw and THWAK

He smACKed the dog across the room,

A blink and he was there

Atop the dog, rolled on his back,

All four paws gripping while he bit,

Ripping, kicking, a ball of fury

Exploding, erupting in a flurry,

Subsiding slowly…

His eyes met mine halfway

‘Was that good enough?’ he seemed to say,

‘…and can we play another day?’

A Sick Country


Are we too blind to see

Symptoms of a sick country:

Crime gets bail in place of gaol,

Prisons are full to overflowing ~

Enough said !

Justice and the Law

Are often at odds

But cash paves the way ~

Life is cheap and death is cut-rate,

Fraud and corruption rule,

Sex is the best ~

Porn and abuse never go to waste,

Cater to every taste,

Girls and boys ply their tricks, BUT.

What kind of man gets his kicks

From raping babies, hidden away

From others in dark corners?

This land, OUR land, is sick!

Stealing Souls


Some people have holes for souls,

Emptiness where their soul should lie

And they walk on by, shells themselves

Space to rent, for living or working

Or space-saving for stolen ideas

Packed neatly for use should the need arise,

Nevermind the origin was from another brain

While yours rides on the train to nowhere

Praise Our Father


A poet weaves his words…
A painter blends his shades…
To praise the wonder of God.
Impossible to say… impossible to do…
We cannot even begin to envision
His glorious be-ing.
We are as no-thing
Comparing brain to brain,
Heart to heart, or
Soul to soul.
He is all.
We are as the blind who read without eyes;
Or the deaf who hear without ears;
Or the lame who run in their dreams.
We know our Father loves his children –
Whatever infirmities they may have –
And we should have faith and return His love
A hundred thousand fold.

Approaching Storm


There’s a fine mist
kissed by the snow on my head
while brain fried, cotton-wool dyed
birds fly high in the sky;
they screech through the leaves,
crash into branches of trees
and winter’s dry twigs
break as they shake to the ground.
Darkness descends from above,
and the air quivers… lightning shivers…
the birds calm down, they make no sound,
waiting… waiting… for the thunder
to rupture, to fracture, the peace.

Wings of the Wind


My soul sings

With the song of the wind,

Harmonising, synchronising…

Blow high, blow low

As around the world we go

Carried as the air’s

Sweet currents flow

From the mountains on high

To the valleys below

Lift me up, lift me up…

Let my spirit soar

On the wings of the wind.

My Friend II


Twelve hours here and
twelve hours there;
Twelve hours here and
twelve hours – where?
I’ll never forget the mournful sound
made when you found
you had to leave ~
The softest howl,
almost under your breath
brought a lump to my throat
and a tear to my eye as
I turned around to retrace my steps
and found you had gone
until the morrow…
An invisible force,
an inaudible voice,
you had no choice
but you had to obey.

My Friend

* Edited


It was clear as daylight
Right from the start
He needed a friend
As did I, heart to heart.
Tho’ his visits took place
In the silence of night.

Regular as clockwork
He would arrive,
Stay the night then depart
In the early morning light,
While birdsong crashed,
Clamouring to wake the dead.

Spring Cleaning


The warm winds blow
(sometimes with a hint of ice –
tail-end of winter’s cold),
ruffling the leaves
on the evergreen trees,
dusting the bare branches
of the unclad.

Dust rises in great swirls,
reddish and coarse,
echoes of the ground beneath
where it settles once again,
providing succour to the roots
whence it came.

Seasons’ circles,
cycles interwoven,
life and death
to the eye,
but the soul
will never die.
