Willow, the riverside cat (Cat poem)

The cat that swims

Willow, the riverside cat

Willow, who has lived by the riverside since her birth,
Makes her way carefully through the tall riverside grass.
Stepping nimbly around that patch of wet sticky earth,
She spots the river, reflecting the sunlight like glass.

Carefully she dips a front paw into the river,
Confirming to her that it is running nice and slow.
With her fur coat ensuring that she will not shiver,
She begins swimming across the rivers gentle flow.

For there’s a picnic area over on that side,
It’s a place where rich pickings can usually be found.
If there are dogs, there are many places she can hide,
Ready to sneak out and take what’s dropped to the ground.

She’s in luck! For a barbecue took place there last night,
And there are some good quality scraps for her to eat.
Once she has had her fill, she swims back home in delight,
Back to her garden, seeking out her favourite seat.

Her fur is soon drying under the warm summer sun,
She licks it back into its uttermost perfection.
Feeling so tired from all of this hard work she has done,
She curls up neatly for some sleep, rest, and reflection.

You changed my life for the better (poem)

That special meeting

You changed my life for the better

The changes came so very slowly at the start,
Just a tiny crack appearing within my heart.
Before that moment, just a stillness lived within,
Then you appeared and caused those changes to begin.

I had shut the world out, turning myself away,
Even when I met you, my life was still so grey.
Yet, when you pass me by, you left something behind,
Just a little seed that my heart was sure to find.

Without my awareness, that seed started to grow,
Until the crack made in my heart started to show.
The changes had begun! there was no holding back,
And I began to see just what my life did lack.

Now it’s time to open up, for my life to change,
Time to take a look and see what to rearrange.
Remove the grey sadness, let love come shining through,
Fill my life with happiness, all because of you.

First promises of love (poem)


For Valentines Day

First promises of love

Let our love dance between us, listening to our heartbeat,
As we begin those first shy steps, awkward on clumsy feet.
Let our love lift us up, so we can touch the stars in the sky,
As we encounter love promises, and our hearts learn to fly.
Let our love bring us back, safely and gently, to the ground,
As we seek a way, to where a loving future can be found.
Let our love hold us together, to last forever more,
For it is you my sweet love, that my heart and I, adore.
