Little Doors

 

There are tales of little doors

And of creatures from the moors.

Fairies, leprechauns and trolls

In their hands their tiny bowls.

 

In dark of night when they do stir

You’ll never see more than a blur.

What’s for dinner? I don’t know.

They are hungry if they show.

 

Tiny heads and tiny feet

Laugh not if by chance you meet.

Stand so still and let them be.

Never fear what you can’t see.

 

Open wide that little door

Magic lives and it wants more.

Freedom such a pretty word

Deep within the heart it stirred.

 

Gently treat the magic folk

They may in you pure joy evoke.

Live together and at peace

And on life a brand new lease.

Rainbow Moments

 

A second in time

Never before seen

But special the colour

In blue, red and green.

 

So very dear

And then it is gone

But the memory remains

With each breath that is drawn.

 

A vision in colour

It plays in your mind

Your life becomes sweeter

The memory entwined.

 

Believe in yourself

Be the best you can be

And those moments of rainbows

You always will see.

Wrinkles

 

A wrinkle free world

Unfettered by hate

Smoothed by the love

That people create

 

A world where the person

That stands next to you

Is the one you call friend

No matter the view

 

Our hearts are the measure

That everyone takes

And no one remembers

Those silly mistakes

 

Brothers and sisters

Is what we become

Our bond is our family

Our rule of thumb

 

Perhaps it’s a dream

That I had late one night

But I’d like to think

That I could be right

Stimulating the Senses

Cologne on the neck

Of the man you adore.

Perfume on the woman

You leave wanting more.

 

Rain on the grass

Just after a storm.

Brilliant new flowers,

The air silky and warm.

 

The breath on your cheeks

From a baby’s wee cough.

A delicate moment

Where nothing is off.

 

The sight of a sunrise

Just kissing the sky.

A snow covered lake

The air crisp, cold and dry.

 

The senses were meant

To be stirred and caressed,

A stimulating moment

With which you are blessed.

My Calling

ink sketch

 

See the smile upon my face

I put it there for you

Now perhaps you’ll understand

The things that I must do

 

A cloudy day is all around

You fear the sun is gone

But here it is upon my face

Which from my heart it’s drawn

 

We have the power to pass it on

To change the way it’s done

Perhaps it’s just a smile you need

To feel as if you’ve won

 

But sometimes more is needed here

To change the way you feel

I will do all that I can

To help you start to heal

 

The reason I am in this place

I believe it is my calling

To help another when in need

To keep someone from falling

 

In doing so I live my life

The best that I can be

I join with others all around

To help the world to see

 

 

Perfection

Double, double, boil and bubble

A wise one once declared,

Never stir and never spill

And soon it could be shared.

Loose and free as God declared

A leaf upon the breeze,

Captured and contained I fear

But never, never freeze.

Slowly steeping all is good

Time will make it be,

And just a minute later

A perfect cup of tea!

Conversations with God

I am not a religious person

I don’t know what that means

But I do like to have a chat

It’s not what all it seems.

Father dear who art in Heaven

Please hear the words I pray

Times are hard, I need you

I need you please to stay.

My gentle child I hear you

Each breath and sigh you make

I am never far you see

With every step you take.

I weep in sadness for what I see

My heart is heavy too

But I will watch and guide you

In everything you do.

I am a religious person

I know all what that means

I will carry on Your work

For all is as it seems.

It’s A Fact

 

Perfect I ain’t

And that’s just a fact

I do have my moments

And sometimes they lack.

I love with abandon

It’s wild as they say

But it is a comfort

To spend everyday.

I look for the joy

And temper the sad

I try to be good

I try not to be bad.

The choices I make

In the life that I live

Will come from the heart

In all that I give.

Perfect I ain’t

That is the fact

But life is for living

And I ain’t goin’ back!

A Kernel of Truth

 

A kernel of truth

From your lips I expect

Instead I am hearing

Of a Colonel you decked?

 

That notwithstanding

I asked for your word

So please be forthcoming

And say what you heard!

 

You swear it’s a bird

That doesn’t make sense

Why would a fowl

Jump over your fence?

 

Lady I’m here

To deal with a crime

So lose all this nonsense

And stop all the rhyme!!

In The Arms of My Father

 

His gentle arms embrace me

He touches my eyes to see

His gentle push a reminder

Of the person I need to be

 

He sees in me a value

A wealth beyond compare

I do not see it yet myself

With Him perhaps I’ll dare

 

The road I travel now this day

With guidance from above

Is all I need to do my best

Because it’s done with love

 

I pray one day I will reside

Within that heavenly realm

Peace and love and goodness

When our Father’s at the helm
