A blank piece of paper (poem)

A place for the imagination

A blank piece of paper

A blank piece of paper sitting there in front of you,
Revealing nothing, but with so much there you can do.
A place you can write or draw, the choice is yours this day,
Just pick up a pen or pencil and doddle away!
It doesn’t have to make sense, just release what’s in your mind,
It’s amazing what’s in there, waiting for you to find.
Perhaps just a few squiggles, to the top or to the side,
Or slap bang in the middle, a circle can reside.

Some words could be written, whatever comes into your head,
You could write them backwards, or upside-down instead.
Once you start writing, more words may start to come along
Who knows, you could even end up writing a new song.
You could add in a drawing, fill up an empty space,
Lots of little doddles going all over the place.
When you have done and there’s nothing left you want to try,
You could make a paper aeroplane and let it fly.

A perfect moment (poem)

Contentment just for a moment

A perfect moment

A perfect moment is surrounding me,
A moment of peace and of harmony,
Though I could not say just why this should be,
There is just something here, setting me free.

Just now within this moment I belong,
It could be that I am singing a song,
Or maybe outside, just strolling along,
Whatever it may be, I now feel strong.

A perfect moment, a sense of pure calm,
There’s no need to worry, there’s no alarm.
Happiness is resting within my palm,
The breeze of blissfulness brushing my arm.

I shall cherish this moment while it is here,
Relish this contentment, holding it near.
But I will let it go, let it disappear,
For I know more perfect moments will appear.

Catching a smile (poem)


Smiles are good for you

Catching a smile

I saw you come walking along the street,
With a cheerful tapping of your feet.
You had such a sweet smile upon your face,
As you walked on by, at quite a pace.
You rushed past me, your mind was elsewhere,
That you hardly knew that I was there.

I will never know just why your sweet smile,
Touched my world for such a little while.
Your happiness was so easy to see,
That it reached within to a part of me.
It brought a smile to me upon this day,
As I carried on, along my own way.

It made me think just how a smile can grow,
From a seed from someone I do not know.
That when you catch a smile, just by chance,
From a passing stranger, from only a glance,
It can cheer you up, so what I shall do,
Is to show a smile, to be caught by you.

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.

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.

An anti-negativity day (poem)


Let’s have a day full of good bits.  

An anti-negativity day

An anti-negativity day, that’s what this day is going to be!
A day for releasing everything that has ever worried me.
A day for throwing out all of that inner sadness and sorry,
For I know full well that they will return, quite happily, tomorrow.
A day for doing pleasant things with only pleasant thoughts in mind,
To take a look around and see what enjoyable things I can find.
Perhaps I will just sit and rest, or at least that’s how this day will start,
Then maybe find an activity that will bring enjoyment to my heart.

Let’s just read the good news and ignore any bad bits there may be,
And leave it to the rest of the world to do the worrying for me.
A day of anti-negativity, taken just once in a while,
Will give my tired soul a rest, and a chance to do things with a smile.
For what does it matter if today is one of sunshine or rain?
I intend to search the good bits for some happiness to regain.
Let tomorrow come along well after the setting of the sun,
But from now until then, I’ll let this day be one of peace and fun.

A moment of happiness (poem)


Memories are full of happy moments!

A moment of happiness

A moment of happiness, a moment to smile,
A moment to let cheerfulness appear for a while.
A bright sunny morning, the birds greeting the dawn,
Brings a moment of joy as they land on the lawn.
A red sky above you, the birds return to their nest,
Brings a moment of calm as the sun goes for its rest.

A moment of fun, to let your laughter flow again,
Singing out loud on your own, or dancing in the rain.
A moment shared with friends, of playing games in the park,
Or that moment when you all lit candles in the dark.
A moment spent remembering the fun in your past,
Returns with happy memories that were made
to last.

Any moment is precious, you have many inside,
All waiting for you to let them pop up outside.
Just look up at the stars or feel the wind in your hair,
Let your mind seize this moment and enjoy what’s there.
Even in darkness you can find a moment of light,
For within your heart, happiness is always in sight.

Take a moment to smile (poem)


A smile can make such a difference to our lives.
(This is a double rhyme poem)

Take a moment to smile

Take a moment to smile, just here in this place,
And after a while, it will cheer up your face.
Now spread it around for anyone to see,
Let it be easily found by others, for free!

If your smile finds another, that it can reach out to,
Then you can help each other, on this day, to get through.
For a smile will bring hope, in those times of great sorrow,
Helping us to cope and find a better tomorrow.

Take a moment to smile, let it enter within,
When facing a sad trial, it will help you to win.
It will lighten your load, releasing your sadness,
Brightening up life’s road, with a touch of gladness.

For a smile can help all, both inside and out,
Gives us strength to stand tall, helps us to tackle our doubt.
If it is too hard to do, just go for a grin,
Then let it seep through you, and your smile will begin.

Hugs, hearts and rainbows (short poems)


A collection of short poems.

Accepting a hug

Accept a hug in joyfulness,
Let it wrap you in its loving embrace.
Let it pass on its happiness,
And set a smile upon your face.

Beginning with the heart

When something new,
Comes into your view,
It can bring uncertainty on where to start.
Just look within,
On where to begin,
For the best guide is your own loving heart.

Life’s inner rainbow

Life’s inner rainbow comes in many shades and hues,
Within every part of us these colours do dwell.
So whenever you feel you are just living in the blues,
Glance around, for the other colours are there as well.

Nature’s Midsummer Music (poem)


The beauty of the birds in summer

Nature’s Midsummer Music

The Robin calls as sunrise begins,
Announcing that it is getting light.
Silence fades as every bird sings,
Their dawn chorus chases the night.

The Red Kite flies smoothly above,
Crying out as it watches below.
In the garden lands a Collard Dove,
Cooing as it walks to and fro.

The Swallows can be heard up high,
In the warmth of the afternoon.
Swiftly they zoom across the sky,
Singing out loud their high-pitch tune.

Sparrows are chattering in the tree,
Before they descend onto the ground.
Hopping all around the lawn to see,
What seeds and insects can be found.

The Nightingale calls as sunset nears,
The birds start to settle for the night.
But the Barn Owl hoots as it appears,
Opening its wings and taking flight.
