Turmoil and Tranquility (poem)


Turmoil and Tranquillity

Turmoil and tranquillity,
Adrift upon the sea of life.
Found within serenity,
Found within times of strife.

Tranquillity brings a peace,
A stillness upon life’s beach,
Where busyness will cease,
As tension floats out of reach.

Turmoil brings revolution,
Waves beating upon the shore.
A time of evolution,
With new oceans to explore

Harmony brings them together,
To sail both calm and angry seas.
Drifting slowly in calm weather,
Racing fast upon a summer’s breeze.

Whichever way life’s current flows,
Together they seek tomorrow.
Sailing through the highs and lows,
With harmony replacing sorrow.

Love means more than just a kiss (poem)


Love is found everywhere

Love means more than just a kiss

Love means more than just a kiss shared in the dark,
Love means more than walking, hand in hand, through the park.
Love means more that spending a lifetime together,
For love is more than lovers promising forever.

Loves gentle hand is found in those kind deeds that you do,
From words of encouragement that help to get you through.
Love is found in a thoughtful mind thinking this day,
Of how it can help others to find a better way.

Love picks up all the pieces other hearts leave behind,
Then patches them up with happiness for you to find.
Love waits patiently until you are ready to mend,
For love is found in anyone who is also a friend.

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.

The Passing of Tomorrow (poem)


A life in a day

The Passing of Tomorrow

Tomorrow comes sailing into sight,
As yesterday starts sailing away.
Briefly they meet in the deep dark night,
Where, for a moment, they share a day.

Tomorrow’s cloak sparkles in the night air,
Yesterday’s cloak has fallen to the floor.
But only for a while does it lay there,
Before tomorrow picks it up once more.

For yesterday’s cloak shows where we have been,
As tomorrow stores it away in the mind.
Becoming a memory of all that was seen,
Sitting forever in there for us to find.

In today, tomorrow passes on through,
Following the footsteps left by yesterday.
Bringing to us a day that is brand new,
Before, it too, begins to sail away.

A Reflection of Beauty (poem)


Where can beauty really be found?

A Reflection of Beauty

The person in the mirror who is looking back at me,
Must be myself, for there is no one else it can ever be.
Every curve, every bump, everything there is true,
And there is no possible chance that it could ever be you.
But what does it matter, that reflection I see in there?
It means nothing at all, no matter how long I stand and stare.
Whether I am tall or short, overweight or very thin,
It is within my heart that the echoes of myself begin.
It is only the surface of me that is reflected back,
For the beauty of my true self, does that reflection lack.

My true self can be seen in all that I do and in what I say,
The kindness that I give to others I may met upon this day.
My thoughtfulness in any deeds for those around me that I do,
All show the person that I truly am, to others and to you.
If I can make someone laugh once more, when they are feeling low,
If I can encourage someone, when their life is running slow.
If I can pick someone up and carry them that extra yard,
If I can make someone’s life easier, when their life becomes hard.
Then beautiful is what I am, for my beauty spreads right through,
If all you see is the surface, then I have only pity for you.

A Soft Comfy Drawer (cat poem)


A comfy place to sleep

A Soft Comfy Drawer

The Purrfect sleeping place, this drawer’s just right for me,
Clearly designed for a cat, I am sure you will agree.
It comes with space to curl up and a soft comfy floor,
And there would be no breeze, if you would please close the door.
There are jumpers each side, so there is comfort all round,
I will soon be fast asleep in here, all safe and sound.

What’s that? You now want to use it! Please wait just a while,
Let me start purring for you and I will make you smile.
Just for a few more minutes, please can I finish my sleep?
Then I will remove myself and it will be yours to keep.
Well, at least until my next rest time, around about one,
So if you could please leave it open, once you are done.

Seek for the dream beyond the sunrise (poem)


New dreams are there

Lake Smeraldo lake 2

Seek for the dream beyond the sunrise

Seek for the dream beyond the sunrise,
Climb up to where the eagle flies.
Release your hopes high into the air,
Watch them circle serenely up there.

Let tomorrow’s dreams call out to you,
Listen as the sunrise comes into view.
Watch as your hopes fly into your dreams,
Gliding effortlessly in dawns sunbeams.

Feel the breeze of change sweep gently past,
Bringing you some new dreams that will last.
Let dawns sun warm the spirit inside,
And upon those new dreams, take a ride.
