Cat burglar – the open window (Cat poem)


An open window, irresistible for a cat!

Cat burglar – the open window

They have left the window open! Have they all gone off to sleep?
Along the wall in perfect silence, his four paws slowly creep.
The smell of cooked chicken is floating out upon the air,
Telling him, quite clearly, that there is food for him in there.
Getting closer to the window, they have left it open wide!
With perfect elegance, he quietly climbs through inside.

Pausing in perfect stillness, he listens for any sound,
His cat senses tell him that there’s nothing moving around.
The chicken must be somewhere, left over from the barbecue,
Surely, very soon, his searching must bring it into view.
Ah! It’s on the table in a box, they have left off the lid!
He jumps upon the table top, but then he starts to skid.

Sliding along on a plastic plate, he hits the chicken fast,
Scattering it everywhere, and making quite a blast.
Then from upstairs he can hear people beginning to shout,
It’s time to cut his losses, and scrambles rapidly to get out.
Safely out the window he runs along the wall in retreat,
However he did manage to get a chicken wing to eat.

Rainbows within tears (poem)


Within sadness there is light

Rainbows within tears

I thought I caught a rainbow,
Reflecting in your sad eyes.
Bringing to your eyes a glow,
Reflecting the light in the skies.

The rainbow is shedding tears,
Raindrops of colour and light.
Droplets of your pain and fears,
As the storm clouds fade from sight.

Beyond the rainbow is the sun,
To dry up the sadness within.
And once those teardrops are done,
Then its warmth will come on in.

Rainbows within tears are found,
As the sun touches your face.
Gently falling to the ground,
Teardrops seeking a new place.

Then once the teardrops have dried,
The rainbow may fade from view.
But it’s just moved on inside,
For the rainbow lives within you.

Living within a happy moment (poem)


Happiness is alive in you

Living within a happy moment

Living within a happy moment, so cheerful to know,
A chance to enjoy life and to let this memory grow.
To relish this moment, to let it live inside you,
So that it can be remembered, recalled into view.
Once this moment’s over, to be safely tucked away,
A joy forever more, to brighten any dull day.

Whenever you meet a dark day, with not much to see
Just sit back for a while and set that memory free.
It’s with you forever more, through all time and space,
Just let it drift on back and bring a smile to your face.
Let it lead you through sadness and out the other side,
Forever in your heart, that memory shall abide.

Daisies and Buttercups (poem)


Small wonders of nature

Daisies and Buttercups

Daisies and buttercups, in the meadows grow,
Small sparkles of gold and white petals on show.
A splendid gathering of meadow flowers,
Swaying in a breeze, dancing in the showers.
Reaching up to the sun on a warm summers day,
The daisies close their eyes, when night is on its way.
The bees buzz around them, their nectar to collect,
The birds seek between them, for insects to detect.
A meadow of wonder, nature’s summer delight,
And on any country walk, a beautiful sight.
