ME    VERSES    THE    WORLD



WINTER   EMBRACE 

****

The air is crisp

And I am embraced

By winter chills

Which flood across the dales

Drawing all in their path

**

Mighty is the power of nature

As leaves swirl to their demise

And flowers shrug

A last note of life

**

Swept away by lingering thoughts

Of a summer spent enriched

By scented gardens and

Fields of corn as yellow as the sun

**

Icy paths trail to dawns

Lost in bone tingling frosts

Fingers numb and

Deadness surrounds

 

****


CHRISTMAS   IS   A   WONDROUS   TIME
 
A wondrous
Magical
Time of the year
When friends
And relations
Bring happiness
And cheer
 
While gifts
Are given easy
And welcome
As they are
The whole point
To the matter
Must not be far
 
From our minds
Because
Although we enjoy the day
The turkey
The cranberries
The plum pudding and
“Happy Tidings” we say
 
Far too often
The real point we do miss
As we stand under
The mistletoe
And pout
For a kiss
 
The birth of Jesus
In a land far away
Is the real celebration
Let us all kneel and pray




AUTUMN  FALLS  AT  OUR  FEET
 
Golden leaves whirl to the sound of the breeze
I pull my hat on
There stand a hundred skeleton trees
 
Once a regiment of impeccable attire
Scarf circles my neck
An explosion of russet mirrored fire
 
The tallest oak sergeant stands guard at the door
My fingers are chilled
Fragile branched limbs look to the floor
 
Oh summer days, when we laughed at the sun
Two sweaters plus a vest
Those days are dead and gone
 
Bleak days ahead when the cold air is stern
White woolly socks
Bring back the days that I yearn



SUMMER
Summer time and the world stretches her arms
Basking in wonderment to all those earthly charms
Pretty blue skies that float high above
Dotted by the whitest wings of a dove
 
Marshmallow clouds waft in lackadaisical way
Full of cotton fluff skimming fields of yellow hay
Meadows lay lush with buttercups poking their heads
Cows are sleeping and not willing to rise from soft beds
 
Cast off heavy sweaters and allow pale skin to melt
This is the life and where all our dreams dwell
She’s smiling and wants our happiness to grow and to spread
Stroll down summer’s path, take her hand and be lead.




SPRING
 
Winter chills have taken their leave
Freezing temperatures are a thing of the past
Look out of your window because Spring is here
Darkened mornings have disappeared at last
 
Lofty clouds drift the sky as blue as can be
The wakening air has a sweeter taste
Birds dip and dive escorting the newness
There can be no more wonderful place
 
While earth breaks open and bulbs push forth
Trees stand patient to wear their new coats
Hibernation is over for some small animal friends
And beside me are heavenly hosts
 
Huge seas of yellow outstretched to the eye
Timid daffodils suddenly take centre stage
My favourite sight as the new season is born
Fragility is torn from the cage
 
Slender leaf point them forward to smile at the sun
A life brief but so poignant and adored
Swaying together, fragrant heads nod as one
My heart is uplifted and soars

WINTER EMBRACE

 

The air is crisp

And I am embraced

By winter chills

Which flood across the dales

Drawing all in their path

 

Mighty is the power of nature

As leaves swirl to their demise

And flowers shrug

A last note of life

 

Swept away by lingering thoughts

Of a summer spent enriched

By scented gardens and

Fields of corn as yellow as the sun

 

Icy paths trail to dawns

Lost in bone tingling frosts

Fingers numb and

Deadness surrounds


TIDES   OF    TIME

Unfazed,
The sea swell gathered pace
It crept from the distance
On a voyage of froth
And by the time it had reached the shore
It was maddened and sought revenge
 
 
Limp seaweed
Tossed angrily
On to smoothed pebbles
The colour of the sun
As it slips towards the horizon
And hides from view
 
 
Mottled
Is the sky
As dusk prevails, and
In a few hours
The sea will gather all its muster
And crawl back
From whence it came
 
Some Days
