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.

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.

New Years hopes and resolutions (poem)


Let the New Year bring positive changes.

New Years hopes and resolutions

Let this new year be the beginning of a new life,
Where hope can be found upon the dawn of each new day.
Where inner courage can be found to face any strife,
And that through the toils and troubles, I will find a way.

Let kindness and compassion find a path through me,
Let forgiveness bring peace to my world once more.
Let understanding and clear sight allow me to see,
Those who struggle, so I can bring them safely to shore.

And as this new year begins to mature and grow old,
Let my actions bring hope to this world all around.
So that by the years end, there are stories to be told,
Of my acts of love and kindness, that others have found.

Humanities Plea (poem)


Let’s remember our human self and others. 

Humanities plea

Let’s abandon today and leave yesterday behind,
Run away from the future and step out of our mind,
Offload all the stress, remove the fragments of pain,
Unpack all our happiness and start living again.

Let’s fold away tension and tuck it safely away,
Open up childhood memories and learn how to play,
Wipe clear all that anger that blinds us from the truth,
Throw out that bitterness that destroys our inner youth.

Let’s remember that we are all just one human race,
That we all share the same world, in this time and place,
Let compassion and truth be our soul’s inner guide,
That confusion and fear, from our love, can never hide.

Let’s give out our humanity and share all our dreams,
Let’s repair the hurt, so it does not split at the seams,
Let’s hold onto harmony when clouds of hate rush by,
And hoist up the flag of love, for love can never die.
