Something glistens…

~

My photography skills, at best, need work,

Yet how much beauty is in this here tree?

It stands tall and solid and focal,

The light dappling through beautifully…

~

The photo was taken mid-Summer,

While warmth was on the breeze,

Before long though, it was Autumn,

The leaves fell to the ground with ease.

~

For how long it’s stood rooted so strong, so tall,

I could guess but do not know,

The fairies that flutter to and fro

Perhaps they’ll share its secret though…

~

I like to think of it as a whispering tree,

Letting the breeze pass its words on,

Lingering in the air, hovering til they fade

To nothing, til they’re gone…

~

The tree will be here to keep watch,

For years and years to come,

Homing the birds, fairies and elves,

Encouraging mischief and fun!

~

So let’s once more see our majestic tree,

Let’s stand firm in complete awe

Wait, something glistens at the foot of the tree…

A fairy going through the door?…

“How to feed your soul” ~ a poem #WonderfulWorldofWriting

How to feed your soul

~

The sound of the waves as they ebb and they flow,

As they foam around your feet;

They dance, majestically, they turn your toes cold

In the early Autumn sun.

~

The coarse sand rubs against my skin,

Slothing off the rough edges,

The wind does the same to my

Fuzzy head.

~

Hayfever season is done and dusted,

Must be a head cold lurking,

It won’t last long, it won’t take hold,

This fresh air’s as good as any medicine.

~

Looking out on the horizon,

There’s sea as far the eye can see,

A big expanse of saltiness

That fills your soul with peace.

~

A beautiful place, rain or shine, wind or snow,

There’s something about a beach,

Coarse of not,

That cleanses, invigorates, rubs away any rough edges.

“Time” ~ poems (#WonderfulWorldofWriting)

My wonderful world of writing poems blog #WonderfulWorldofWriting

Time

~

Here in the garden with time

To myself,

I think of a million and one

Things to do.

~

But my pen is poised on my paper,

I’m in ‘the flow’,

My soul needs to empty itself.

~

A reflector by nature,

I like to observe

My world and its goings-on,

The to-do list will not get done.

~

Time to savour the garden,

Time to create and make sense,

Time to do what

Time won’t usually allow.

~

Time to take a seat,

Time to take a step back,

Time to appreciate life

As the clock ticks on.

~

I do love to write

I do love to read

And refuse to waste too much

Time.

~

I don’t watch TV

I’d rather read or create,

I’d rather focus on

Positivity.

~

Later on tonight I

Will not regret this

Time that I took

To recoup my mind, my thoughts.

~

No doubt it will belate

When I start a new task

And I will do what I should have done now!

~
