Wonderful loneliness 

May 05, 2020

Everywhere I walk today 

I’m bathed in vibrant green 

With smatterings of blossoming

And bird song quite serene 


I pause atop the wooden bridge 

Then pass the willow weep 

Whilst you are wrapped in gentleness 

Those gentle arms of sleep


Hither, tither, down the lane 

Beyond the steepled church 

Then down the path to the old wood 

A wood of silver birch 


A crowd of bluebells ring for me 

A robin skips on by

Three squirrels darting everywhere 

As dawn now blues the sky 


From the wood down to the brook 

The bush of berries bright 

The orange, red, and even green 

Now sparkle in the light 


The water gently trickles past 

It tries to cover stones 

Those stones lean in to stop the flow 

A waterfall of groans 


Then back to tarmac of the path 

To where this all begun 

I turn to look back at my walk 

Then capture golden sun

The good are the weak

The bad are the strong

Well that’s what they say

But I think that’s wrong


The strong have compassion

The weak take no blame

The good are the caring

The bad have no shame


So the selfless are strong

While the selfish are weak

So when looking for help

It’s the meek that you seek



My Window

August 24, 2016

My top floor window

A narrow view

It lets me see the sky so blue

A wave of clouds

Way up high

A hundred miles up in the sky

Lined up chimney’s

Atop each roof

Pigeons sitting all aloof

Just two tree tops

Quite far away

Dark green leaves gently sway

A single pylon

Brings power to me

The power that I need to see

Fourteen windows

All curtain clad

They make a house look very sad

Garden sheds

Just three to see

Never much activity

A single Magpie

He seems obsessed

Perhaps he’s looking for a nest

Now you can see

Not much to say

It doesn’t differ much each day

One thing missing

Missing from view

Oh yes my friend, that thing is you


Next time

August 22, 2016

It’s easy to be critical

It’s harder to be kind

Try looking at me a different way

Illuminate my mind

Everyone can see my flaws

But can you see my good

Try looking at me a different way

Just say the things you should

Don’t listen to the other folk

Our journey’s me and you

Try looking at me a different way

Have your own point of view

So next time that you get a chance

A chance to speak of me

Try looking at me a different way

Then try serenity
