Ripples in Life

Rain

It’s pouring down with rain
The garden is afloat
But fear not, for with British will
I’ll build myself a boat!

I’ll don full length galoshes
A coat, umbrella too
And dream of sailing out of here
To warmer climes with you!

To see the world by water
Out on the highest sea
To circumnavigate the globe
And take in its beauty!

With thanks for my friend Keith for the use of his rainy day picture

Cones

There are sentries on our roads
All dressed in red and white
That line the highways mile on mile
Without giving insight
As to a reason why they’re there
For in their loyal rows
The empty passage t’other side
Leaves us out of the know
For it appears they simply stand
On guard biding their time
In conical formation and
With no reason and no rhyme!
Saluting all the traffic
As it just trundles by
The cones directing queues of cars
To jam! Oh how I sigh!

Are We Nearly There Yet?

Are we nearly there yet?
Those words all parents hate
That climb aboard with little child
And on the nerves do grate!

For as soon as engine starts up
And wheels begin to turn
They just believe that time will stop
As  journeys end returns

And in that very instant
All children seem to think
That by some “Who’ish” magic
They’lll trade those forty winks

And reach their destination
Almost immediately
Where “are we nearly there yet”
Will become – “what is for tea?”

Traffic Lights

Oh traffic lights please turn to green
Through amber spectrum go
And do us all a favour please
To help the traffic flow

For when you’re red you irritate
And make us all so late
So please remain a go go green
To pacify our state

And help us journey without hitch
No stopping in tracks dead
But let us travel – carry on
Please lights do not shine red!

Look Forward

Look forward to your future
Be inspired by where you go
Have fun! Enjoy! And make the most
Relax! Go with the flow
And with a drop of courage
A spoon of wisdom wise
Take steps forward on pathways new
With dreams up in the sky
But keep your foothold steady
Your mind intent, secure
With focus, dedication, might
And you’ll do fine for sure!

Traffic

The landtrain set in motion
That some may call traffic
A chain of cars that go nowhere
And make me feel quite sick!

For it’s impossible to move
To get just anywhere
Whilst waiting in the static queue
I’m pulling out my hair

And blasted traffic lights don’t help
Turning from green to red (more…)

Treading on Eggshells

A million broken eggshells
To tip toe through in space
To hesitate, to waver
To negotiate the race

Just like broken shards of glass
To miss and to avoid
To take care not to break more
Lest more become destroyed

Or to turn from such fragility
The rivers of lost tears
The wailing and the bedlam
Where time claims no more years

And seek a diamond pathway
Of golden happiness
Where sun glints in the distance
So tempting with less stress

Towards the crystal mountain
With distance from eggshells
To paradise and peacefulness
Or into another hell?

Crystal Ball

Oh to have a crystal ball
To see past now to then
To look into the future and
Reveal the outcomes end

To see the course we’re taking
To realise the way
The way it goes, the bends it takes
Tomorrows past today

To have the chance to change
Our destiny or fate
To look into a crystal ball
Before it’s far too late

The Spiderling

Today I left my egg sac with
A million new siblings
To see the world and find out more
As hatched out spiderlings

And in a cluster we amassed
On sill of window frame
To ponder what we would do next
How to explore life’s game!

Some wandered off in search of food
Whilst others stayed to grow
But I ballooned and cast my silk
To catch the wild airflow

And off I went so far away
To strange and distant shore
On breeze to live arachnid life
As spider evermore
