What may taste delicious,
followed an act that was plain vicious,
there are no victors here,
just a conveyor belt of fear,
to afraid to ask,
how did this begin,
the stones of sin,
 pierce the thickest of skin,

Life's work

He looked a little distant,
so she quietly asked the time,
a bond of steel,
a love he could feel,
holding him firm and carrying him high,
following him here,
taking him there,
with tranquil industry,
her elegant quirk,
kept him dedicated to life's work,
fiercely protective,
with an army might,
she gripped him firm,
and held him tight,
her one quiet question,
is he alright,

The severity of brevity,
without time,
voices turn to mime,
lost in a place,
my mind begin to chase,
your loving grace, 
to speak face to face,
please do not race,

Inclusive glow

A heartfelt reliance,
on poetry and science,
a quiet retreat,
from the social elite,
finding her feet,
she would never delete,
the words were kind,
her mind shined,
an inclusive glow,
that was individual to know,

The sentiment of time

A gift of a moment,
the sentiment of time, 
measure me, treasure
and wish me away,

The man that time forgot

looking across the bay,
from the mountain,
standing as tall as the trees,
whispers blowing in the breeze,
gentle but unrelenting,
cast into the rock,
the man that time forgot,

The man that time forgot

I am writing for you,
placing words carefully,
like exhibits in a gallery,
positioned daintily,
the rhythm of an Irish fiddle,
an ancient riddle,
influence that may succeed,
in the evolving breed,


Formation of Geese

Quiet peace, 
the formation of Geese,
gazing below,
at the gentle snow,
in the triangle angle,
doubts began to untangle,

Shaped by fear,
he became well defined,
trapped in a troubled mind,
shaken to the soul,
all that remained was self control,


A piece of earth -

After being asked to come in from the cold,
deciding not to be so bold,
still standing in the frozen North, 
a small price to pay for quietness each day,
a piece of earth without a clan,
it is here where I can decide a plan,
it is here that shapes a man,

Shimmer like the sea

She shined like a diamond,
shimmered like the sea,
she chose to spend time with me,
calming every storm,
bringing back to favourable form,
two people reborn,


Wednesday, 25 October 2017


Please refrain from asking me,
about the deep, dark and dangerous sea,
it shaped them all,
into the carnivorous, paranoid villains that you see,
please refrain from asking me,
what was so dangerous about the sea,

oil painting called turbulent sea


Lifted up across the sea,
placed down carefully,
fertile ground,
growing without a sound,
strong and firm, reaching out,
across the sea, touching,
plant the seeds of destiny,

Ferocious sea

Across the rough, wild and ferocious sea,
there she stood waiting for me,
the saving grace,
a happy face,
a sad man,
now content with a plan,
with feet now on the land, she took his hand,

Small commotion within an ocean

A small commotion taking place within a powerful ocean,
secret words and magic potions,
lost legends of mighty makers,
wondering where this night may take us,
leave us ready to enjoy the day,
rest, work, love and play.

Left alone, wrapped in fear,
what he turned to was the beer,
fat as hell, rich as sin,
the world around him felt so thin,

Love lost or broken heart,
stop to mourn and be reborn,
beginning here and ending there,
cut down and nailed in place,
the saviour of the Russian race,
a fresh view of modern art,
don't be lonely make a start,

The world moves on,

The world moves forward,
the world moves on,
the world as you knew it, forever gone,
hold your head too high and watch your spirit die,
hold your head too low and I guess you'll never know, 
I only write words because soon we will be gone, 
Though somewhere a part, may slowly carry on,

He's busy taking a hammer
to the glitz and the glamour,
hoping to one day get rid of his stammer,

A poem called Dancing in the Sky

Dancing in the Sky

Only to dance in the sky,
is a wish,
like the birds have taught us,
our long standing relatives,
let us, let them, lead us in the star dance,
flow through the clouds,
free fall through the blue sky,

Only to dance in the sky,
dive into the ocean and jump back out again,
fly by, so high,
nothing can bring down the day of a bird,
if they are feeling blue,
they just push off and up they go,
never to be held down,
 by what keeps ourselves captive on the ground,

Only to dance in the sky,
it has been earned,
by evolutionary decisions,
made by those who came before,
lets take our hats off to the happy birds,
that sing to us each morning,
for they have earned there happiness,
let them, lead us!!

Let us dance in the sky,

A poem called Ocean Shaping

Ocean Shaping

Ancient Oceans and their mountain companions,
shape each other as we one another,

Sometimes gently sometimes with force,
driving us on our ancient course,

History will mould us,
just like the boulders,
that lay where the ocean meets the mountains,

Let us face the sea,
as sturdy as thee,

Let us take shape as you guide us on our course,
reduced eventually to the size of a pebble,
in the old book that is history and time,

For our place may change,
as each may take their turn,
at being both ocean and mountain we learn,

Her Hair

Her hair

The wind whistled through the naked lady’s hair as she watched down below from the top of the cliff where she stood. 
Nothing could be left to chance, 
an arrow through heart of those who choose to advance,
fucking like crazy and running like mad, 
this is the best life we ever had.

second in command

second in command,
never overplayed his hand,
helped those that love the land,
so stronger they may stand,


Dna spread,
in ways that were not said,
through language and expression,
making a lasting impression,

Saturday, 24 June 2017


first she was not heard,
 then she commanded, 
all working to the plan,
 now a thousand angry voices,
 wishing for different choices,

First bite

great minds compressed, 
into a snack for the rest,
 the first bite was the test,
 now to stop the fight,
 argue with all your might,

Why loot when there's fruit,

Given all nature's fruit,
they chose to loot,
from the Kingdom,
furry, feathery and cute,


Equal and opposite reaction, numbers

For every equal and opposite reaction,
 we may just be a number in a fraction,

Quiet footsteps, never standing still,

The war had darkened the depths, 
now they insisted on quiet footsteps,
though never standing still,
for fear of a shudder from the kill,


Original blue and true green,
and all that lay in-between,
passionate red and solid brown,
there is no colour wears the crown,


A toast of tea

The lady with the white hair,
sighed patiently,
 watching the world from a dark brown chair,
toasting tea, to youth, chance and another dance,

Deer and fawn

Kind acquaintance.... feel that bit better,

A change in pace as a kind acquaintance saved a space,

an extra or change of letter,
helps to feel that bit better,

In the distance

In the distance I thought I could see,
what it was that was finally driving me,


Looking for mercy from the thirsty,
as crazy as the lazy,
nature shows what only God knows,

Hens, watermelon

Peace is like a fast

Eat, kill, repeat, 
the ever unwavering beat, 
the pitter patter of tiny feet, 
God just pressed delete, 
the language never grasped,
 of nature’s bitter clasp, 
on all that was designed to last, 
survival is never past, 
perhaps some peace in fast,
