By the Lakeside

Laying by the lakeside On a mild and quiet evening With the Tulips and Pansies waving In sweet union with the Airs And the kisses she gives the wetlands A sudden drop on the waters From the flowers that stood above the lake And the enchanting forested woodland, And the sweet smelling Rose bushes A […]

Blood and Flags

Remember… These words that fall from me My knees are bent in prayers Tearful, shaking lips and nostrils Caution has let hope breed in me Though these days turn sour In lands where we once played But; is hope gone for real? Media, machines and man Inseparable pairs of destruction Seems they kill more When […]

A Tale of the Wild Seas 1: Greece

Snowy Xmas

The snow falls silently Another leaf falls All is white And all is white! The icy wind blows lazily Squirrels huddle together Outside it’s all cold And it’s very cold! And then… The jingle We lived with It’s gift-ful Santa So take a wish And watch him give a nod.

Dawn

Wed, 2 May, 2012 Destiny is a flower A hope unseen Weldin’ up in strength Nev’r to return to its bud. It’s a snail train Pilotin’ thru a rocky terrain On a journ’y of faith A journ’y of the unknown. It’s our tomorrow An expected smile Of persevered tears And a prayerful hug
