Scared of the Dark

Two pointed ears At the end of my bed… A monster is waiting He needs to be fed! I peer through the dark And quite clearly I see Those big scary ears Are twitching at me! As the moon rises Behind a dark cloud, The ears move again And I scream out loud! Then the silvery light shows That what […]


A house so full of memories… We began our dream here, as newly-weds, Amongst the paint-pots and dustsheets. I can see her now, young and spirited, Dressed in my old torn shirt, hair tied high, So beautiful. As time passed us by, this place became home, Filled with the aromas of fresh baked bread And percolated coffee. And she would […]

Dear Easter Bunny

I’m applying for the vacancy, Because I’ve heard you’re sick. A poor bedridden bunny, The thought cuts me to the quick! The ad says ‘must be sensitive’ And ‘able and agile.’ ‘Must have a sense of humour And a natty fashion style’. ‘Must be able to look bunny-like’ Well I sure have the teeth! As for ears, I’m sure they’ll […]

Forward Motion with a Sideways Shift

To My Mam Seventeen moons have bloomed and faded Since your progression Seventeen moons With the thrum of life echoing Through this hollow carapace That was once sanctuary Myriad thoughts constantly ricochet Against the hard edges Of this five-decade crone Though impotent fury still lines the walls Of the corridors of memories Leading in Leading out Muting the blethering babble Of […]


Amourphous tendrils Silken, clinging, Through souls memories Chanting, singing, Sentient thoughts Transparent, shining, In visual realms Auras entwining. Unconditional, always there… Timeless love For all to share. ~ Meditation – the souls warm, candlelit bubble bath at the end of a stressful day! Note:  The word ‘Amourphous’ was coined by singer Tim Booth from the band James, and means ‘changing […]

The Visit

  She came, As promised… Trailing silken, gossamer strands Of every hue, Each leaving behind A deliciously perfumed blessing. From pure white petals of jasmine To the scented woody aroma of patchouli, Each amourphous tendril Softly stroking, Bringing peace And tranquillity To my chaotic mind. Wings dark as night Brushed through my dreams. A multicoloured planetarium of delights, Gently spinning, […]

Paradise Waits

I remember… Falling.            .               .           . through time and space ~ falling tumbling spinning ~ Our world collapsed crumbled and we fell.                   .                . Where did you […]


As ice assuages fire inside my heart, And all my years experience fade to dust, My dreams and yearnings take on coloured hues, As iron, when decaying, turns to rust. Of all the lessons learned while in this life, The brightest one to shine within my soul Is love, it’s guided everything I’ve done, Enriched my world, and healed, and […]

Silenced Citrus!

There I was, In the blazing sun, Thinking my life had just begun. When this big brown hand Pulls me out of my tree, With no apology Or by your leave! Well! My world Changed Forever! I was squashed in a crate With the lid nailed down! And we rode in a lorry Through the middle of town, Till we […]

The Sad Tale of Polly O’Rennick

At the foot of the hill she gathered her wits, She wanted that pixie – she loved him to bits. She flitted around drinking nectar from flowers, To pluck up the courage – she’d been trying for hours! The nectar was sweet and hallucinogenic, And that little fairy (named Polly O’Rennick) Was soon on her way to being high as a kite. […]
