Swansong February

Woodlands of nocturnal; abode for slumbers dwell. Veiled airs, crisp with ice, taint frozen with their smell.   Oppression of stark trees, in hardship, they persist. Robbed of blossoms dignity, but surrender, they’ll resist.   Prolonged, the war of skies, by threat of sombre shades. Beneath clouds hailing stone, does fall the glacier’s blade.   […]


This world is magnificent, but unsightly it can be. So hallelujah and rejoice, for always there is tea. Milky white, sugar or not; black may be your taste. Sturdy strong, weak or mild; choose at your own pace. When turbulence unfolds, and clarity you can’t see. There is nothing quite so bad, when pondered with […]

Flowers of Message

Those meadows of eternal, in blossom, sing their song. With message of each flower, may peace descend upon.   Oh tulips coloured vibrant; devotion, hear them speak. Treasuring that perfect love, our hearts will always keep.   With orchids glorious beauty; in thoughtfulness, they care. Their tribute to your nature, for the kindness you did […]

Church Bells

Church bells are now ringing; echo calls out loud. Sounding is the message, through Jesus, we are found.   Bestowed is such a lesson, through earth’s torn seams. Show kindness and humility, and know the Lord has seen.   Let turmoil know with faith, in Jesus, there is hope. Bended knee, say a prayer, and […]


Raining purple skies, drop stars, red in bolt. Above rebellious rivers; where backwards fish revolt.   Valleys boast in tongue, as forests dress with pride. Soldiered is the march, of robins swooning by.   Spinning leafs do swirl, kissing violent gales. Riding on blue clouds; chasing wagging tails.   Nature sings as ruler; worms wear […]

The Slate

A moment to seek, subtle in reflect. Ponder no former; excuse all mistakes. Dwell not on lessons, hardship nor pain. Pardon misdeeds; let peace now remain. Forward, move feet, and look not behind. Be grounded no more; dawn rises, now fly. Forgive heavy heart, and soul shall be free. Unbounded are chains, exempt of misery. […]

Christmas Stars

Festive fever sparkles, shimmering in fine air. Pavements hum with life; dancing free of care.   Trees dressed in pride; decorative by each leaf. Glinting in white light; on eye, they shall please.   Goodwill oozing cheer; tidings to be sweet. Magic filling rooms; of Christmas it shall speak.   Presents are heartfelt; gave by […]

Platform Of No Stop

Platform of no stop; ticket states unknown. Station now is empty; cold and so alone. Former trains all gone; shadows are behind. Passengers in depart; acquaint one final time. Gusting winds howl, taunting edge is near. Only shall the journey, resume if sight grows clear. Vision of horizon; travels to bequest. Freedom by the whistle; […]

Afternoons in Winter

Precious are the hours, leading winters dusk. Billow does the scent; winds of tainted musk.   Disbelieving sky; shades form their palette. Tender subtle pinks, chased by grey inhabit.   Rattle does stray leaves; bare are bones of flesh. Ghostly in reminder, spring seen them fresh.   Clouds peep with sight, releasing rays of blue. […]
