 Their Eyes Sparkle Wide Poem Wonderful World Of Writing Blog Linky

When Their Eyes Sparkle Wide

 

When I looked through her school bag for homework and slips

I found an envelope inside, “To the parents of Miss…”

Absent-mindedly I thought, “It’s likely about SATS.”

As I skim-read, blah blah, wait, “I’m delighted that…”

 

Wait, what?  Slow down, the letter’s not what I thought,

The pride rushed right through me like a proud mummy’s ought;

I read it again, word by word, slowly this time,

Taking in each syllable, the wonder all mine…

 

There have been moments a-plenty in my days as a Mum

When my heart’s near burst open, and this moment is one;

Reading on some more, I called our daughter to look,

Slowly, precisely she read, “…poem published in a book!”

 

Our girl’s wonder, amazement, her eyes sparkling wide,

Her poem to be printed and read far and wide!

She’d penned a poem at school and handed it in,

Of 11,000 entries, the judges’ decision was ‘win’!

 

And it is a ‘win’ cos it’s amazing and believe it or not,

Her original, own poem is in the final ‘lot’;

She’s been chosen from thousands, she’s our little star

Our creative, wonderful daughter, see her talent go far…

 Poetry A Poem About Pet Loss Wonderful World Of Writing Blog Linky

A Poem About Pet Loss

 

Pets can be so different,

And their owners too;

Different personalities

That come shining through…

 

When they’re no longer there

And only memories remain

We look back fondly at their quirks

Wishing to see them again.

 

Rosie was our pet, our cat

Much joy she brought us too,

I remember when we bought her home

It was so exciting and new…

 

She fitted in the carrier with another kitten,

Skitting here and there,

She was so funny

Yes we were smitten…

 

She had a little nook, a box

Where she often lay,

She’d pop her head up out of the top,

She really made our day!

 

A typical cat, she’d often play

And chase her tail around,

The Queen of funny she really was

A cat or maybe a clown!

 

When you lose a pet, a void appears

a massive gap is left

Empty bowls and beds, less noise, less ‘them’

Leave you feeling quite bereft

 

At times like these I remember

All the funny times and more,

Those snuggles on the sofa,

Cat food all over the floor!

 

Rosie, we will miss you,

But we’re glad your now at rest,

Your cheeky character, exploring nature,

You really were the best!

xXx

Why the New Year is like an adventure playground

 

Do you feel obliged to make resolutions for the new year?

Or is feeling left out the ultimate fear?

In this playground called life, adventure awaits,

“Stop, I want to get off!”.. . “Not likely!” says fate!

 

In this playground, monkey bars are an elusive goal,

Arms and legs sprawling haphazardly, knees wrapped round a pole,

New Year is a chance to shed the old skin for new,

Shake off the bad habits cos it all starts with you!

 

The ‘boingy thing’ on the spring, be it lion, horse or elephant,

Is great for the toddlers, not so good for the drunk,

Who thinks it funny to spring all over the place,

An easy dare til it snaps, falling flat on their face.

 

The zip wire, if you’re daring is a whole heap of fun,

There’s no stopping once you start, like the buffet at mum’s,

You know you should be ready, be raring to go,

But you’ve had time off, can’t co-ordinate, oh no!

 

Alas, none the less, it’s time to get real,

To ditch the slippers and PJs, plan the family meal,

The blissfulness of winter walks are so yesterday,

As you scrape the ice from the car for the motorway.

 

It’s an effort to make the swings both sway in synch,

To keep a steady pace on the roundabout, to make yourself think,

To get back into gear, shrug off the holiday haze,

But no fear, for there’s only 364 more days!

Best of 2016 ~ my writing ~ #WonderfulWorldofWriting

So on to this month’s…

As a little round-up of my writing in 2016, I’d like to share with you my top posts of poems and flash fiction (according to my stats) and at the end of the little list, I’ll re-publish my personal favourite.  I’d love to know which one’s your favourite too?…

Best of 2016… my writing

‘The Friendship Journey’ ~ an observation of childhood friendships, how they’re made and how they’re (generally!) so simple.  It really doesn’t matter what our daughter’s friends look like, where they come from, what they eat, what colour their hair is.  If they ‘click’, that’s all that matters…

~

‘Thinking Outside the Box’ ~ a poem which explores our daughter’s ability to re-think a hiccup while building a toy.

~

‘No one knew when it was going to happen’ ~ as I continue to experiment with flash fiction, this was one of those that just flowed and this was the result.

~

‘Platform to another World’ ~ another piece of flash fiction where my imagination led the way.

~

‘How Safe is your Street?’ ~ a collaboration that I really enjoyed writing.

~

‘Pretty post-its and paper’ ~ this poem was inspired by … well the title speaks for itself!

~

‘Visiting Hours’ ~ a powerful poem on a personal level, which makes it my second personal fave!

But my favourite is ‘The Friendship Journey’.  If you’ve read this one before, I make no apologies but invite you to settle in for a couple of minutes and enjoy it again 🙂

The Friendship Journey

Moving house with a child is no easy thing to do,

A new bedroom, new school and new friends too,

A time of stress, anxiety, a logistical nightmare,

Emotions are tender, how will they fare?

~

You get it all sorted, a school place is yours,

A settling in session, opening of new doors;

Metaphorically, literally, it’s a critical time,

Reassured by people, “she’ll be just fine…”

~

It’s exciting, it’s scary for her and for us,

We try to hide our unease with a ‘positive’ fuss,

Goodbyes are said to old school friends, her mates,

A new chapter is coming, new friendships await…

~

Then new names come up in our daily chat,

“So and so said this, so and so said that,

Soon can they come after school and for tea?

They can play with my toys, they can colour with me.”

~

Of course the answer is, “yes, yes and yes!”

As long as she’s happy I can cope with the mess!

It’s lovely to see, a relief beyond doubt,

To see our girl happy, see new friendships carved out.

~

What’s more, it’s so nice she doesn’t care one bit

If her friend’s from Eastern Europe or if they’re a Brit!

All she wants is to play, to share jokes, to have fun,

As far as she sees it, they’re like her, we’re all ‘one’…

~

By Carol Cameleon 2016

The story behind the poem: As our little girl is cementing new friendships after a house move and subsequent new school, it’s intriguing and refreshing that background really doesn’t matter, as long as she ‘clicks’ with them…

~

another-colourful-brick-in-the-wall-tick-pretty-garden-bonding-activity-colourful-unique-outdoors

I’ve mentioned before that our garden is very small and when we moved house, it was in Autumn, so we didn’t spend any time out there.

When spring sprung, we decided to pretty it up and painted the wall.  It might not look very tidy but we had loads of fun painting it and it really brightens up the garden, in fact the whole back area of our block of houses.

It also inspired this poem…

Another Brick in the Wall

When your garden is dull and really quite small,

You can pretty it up, let’s start with the wall!

You can paint it all over, in one block of red,

Or paint random bricks different colours instead!

You can each take a turn with yellow, red or pink,

Whatever the pattern, it looks great, don’t you think?

It’s a breath of fresh air, it’s a cheerful sight,

On a Summer’s day and an Autumnal night.

It’s brightened our garden, our haven, our place,

To chill our boots and to slow down the pace.
