Bring Light

Bright light from far horizon
Shine down on all things good
Smile at the hearts that imbue joy
Exactly as you should

And where some bring sheer darkness
Who fail to love and care
Beware of their dark spirit
Consuming with despair

And do not waste your radiance
Don’t be sucked in; snuffed out
Instead bring light to others who
Are worth it without doubt

There are days when you realise just how lucky you are to be surrounded by the light particularly when you come across the darkness.  The joy is to imbue and share that light with other like minded souls.



She’s waited all winter
Laid still in the cold
So patiently held back
With all things on hold

She’s bided her time
But soon she’ll be here
With warm sunny days
Tidings of good cheer

As spring in her glory
Bursts forth into bloom
With bright yellow daffodils
Dispelling the gloom

And with lambs in the meadows
Frolicking anew
Comes the season of hope
And all things brand new

Akin to a bride
She’ll arrive splendidly
In a garment of green shoots
And a trail of beauty



White Linen

White linen
Mirror on a sunny day
Tinged with scented summer flowers
The fragrant coolness of the cornflower
Fragility of wayside poppy
And delicacy of daisy in a chain
Image of verdant meadow grasses
Fresh dew drop on white lilly
Beneath the cerulean sky
And balmy breeze
Echoing song of summertime in the air


Blue Skies

Where heavens waver constantly
Up in the sky so blue
Expanding cross the universe
With conscious insights new

Where clouds roll out as whispers and
Spool freely too and fro
Their cotton buds of pure white tints
And murmurs as they go

Where sun burns down so brightly
With heat; sunshiny ray
Eluding hope and happiness
Blue skies stretch out today

Just one of those glorious early summer days i...

Ode to My Duvet

Dear Duvet

What testament do you have
What witness statement
Could you share
Throughout the years
Of service when
You loyally have been there?

To comfort and protect
Providing a layer of warmth
Against the cold
Striking out against
The perils that the
Nights may just behold

Giving succour and assistance
Without knowledge or
Even strength
But unconditional heartfelt
Care and love
To go the full whole length

Providing a haven of sweet comfort
And a security blanket from
The wilderness
Against the trials of life
That invade
And try so hard not to bless

And dear Duvet

How many pages have you seen me write
How many books
Have we read
How many webpages have
We digested
While lying on my bed

How many films have we watched
How many documentaries
Have we seen
How many times have we cried together
At the raw face
Of humanity on the screen

How many meals have we eaten
How many drinks
Have been drunk
How many times have we snuggled up
Swearing not to see
The rotten ‘Skunk’

That ‘Skunk’ that I loved so much
That loved me
So he said
But dearest duvet, loyal friend
You remain
The best in bed!

For My Darling Duvet

You have been here from the start
And doubtless will be here
To the end
You held me when I was poorly
And my heart
You tried to mend

You saw my children born
You watched them
Grow and play
And endured their
Nightime wanderings
When they rose
Too early for the day

You’ve endured and seen so much of life
The ups and downs
The spectral rays
But never once have you complained
Or succumbed
To strike by night or day

The cat and dog adore you
You’re a blessing
That is true
For dearest Darling Duvet
From my heart –
Gratitude and love to you.
