An injection of colour ~ poem #WonderfulWorldofWriting

colour therapy new look clothes image blog

I don’t do much colour, it’s fair to say,

Tend to be ‘black’ from day to day,

But these words from a friend, a virtual soul,

Have nudged me to colour, a real-life goal!

~

A revamp is needed, a taste of the new,

Mustn’t mind what the world thinks, it’s not about ‘you’,

Cos of course, if I’m happy, it’ll show in me,

In my smile, in my mood, in my ‘tone’ you see.

~

The tone of my voice, the shade of my smile,

I don’t tend to wear lippy, it’s been quite a while…

In the tone of my mood, the tone of my thoughts,

The colour you wear can affect all sorts.

~

So let’s get to it, let’s re-align myself,

Colour therapy’s great for good mental health,

A splash here and there, perhaps make-up too,

Yes it’s time for a change but for me, not for you…

~

By Carol Cameleon 2015 ~ inspired by a fellow blogger, Vicky Welton in her poem about colour.

Just her and her book ~ poem #WonderfulWorldofWriting

Our little princess is absorbed in her world,

It sends tingles right through me as the pages are turned,

I’m so careful to capture this moment in time,

As I take a pic of this sweet child of mine.

~

Don’t want to disturb her or get in her face,

While she’s taken off to another worldly place,

Where the magical fairies they save the day,

With a sprinkle of dust, you blink, they’re away!

~

This moment is priceless, just her and her book,

And her little chair, her reading nook,

As she slowly reads, sounds the words on the page,

It could’ve been me when I was her age!

~

Friendship is free…

friendship happy chat together blog

These little creatures are all in a row,

There’s a new place in town where they all want to go!

It’s our little girl’s cafe, it’s groovy, it’s cool,

Where anything goes, and there’s only one rule…

~

To laugh and have fun and sample the cake,

A place to bring family and new friends to make,

These creatures are different, not like you and me,

They still fit in though cos friendship is free!

~

By Carol Cameleon 2015

Just a little note – the link to Our Little Bear’s Cafe will take you to my ‘old’ parenting MummyBearsBlog  which has since merged with this VirtuallyAllSorts blog.  🙂

Down on the farm ~ poem #WonderfulWorldofWriting

Down on the farm …

What is this in my Pop’s hand?

It’s a little black seed that he plants in the land.

“How does it grow?” I ask my Pop,

He tells me how he looks after his crops.

~

I wonder aloud, “Do you plant with a spade?”

He tells me how his crops are made:

In bygone years tools were pulled by a horse,

Now we have tractors to take the force.

~

Our little bear at five years old

Is taking it in, and learning tenfold,

Like the sun and rain helps the crops to grow,

She’s growing from Pop telling all that he knows.

~

Down on the farm, you can see that she thrives,

What a special time to have when you’re five.

She explores with her cousins, and a grown-up too,

With the farm at her feet, there’s so much to do.

~

Today she’s dressed up, she’s been a Princess all day!

But usual attire is for outdoor play.

Good job we remembered her Frozen wellies,

For trudging through soil and farmyard smellies!

~

No matter, it washes, who cares about dirt?

With soil in her nails, mud on her skirt,

She’s having a ball, she’s free, she’s alive!

Memories to last for the rest of her life… 🙂

Letter to the NHS ~ poem #WonderfulWorldofWriting

Letter to NHS National Health Service thanks gratitude poem WonderfulWorldofWriting blog writing linky party - Copy

‘Letter to the NHS’

Some people slate you and that’s their view

But me, I’ve got nothing but praise for you.

Your compassion, your patience, your hard graft with no breaks,

You feel pressure from everywhere, a special person that takes.

~

The National Health Service is made up of lots of them,

The passionate people making up the stem.

They’re what keeps the flower from falling down,

From going limp and wilting with a smile, not a frown.

~

The NHS has helped my family so very much,

They saved my life with a golden touch,

Our little girl’s too.  We wouldn’t be here

Without the care they give year on year.

~

Nurses, doctors, all the other staff too,

A big pat on the back for all that you do.

I’m the first to defend you when someone has a ‘go’,

This poem’s for you – thought you’d like to know.

A Mothers Day poem for my Mum ~ #WonderfulWorldofWriting

mothers day poem mother's day poem WonderfulWorldofWriting writing blog linky mum flowers

‘My Amazing Mum’ ~ a poem for Mothers Day

~
My amazing Mum is lovely
And kind and thoughtful too,
When it comes to hugs and kisses
There’s nothing she can’t do…
~
Through the years she’s cooked my food,
Washed my clothes and helped me out,
She’s the best Mum ever, ever,
Of that there is no doubt…
~
In my times of need, she’s there
She’s selfless to a tee,
She so deserves these flowers,
So now, listen to my plea…
~
A bouquet would make her day
She loves a bunch of blooms,
A finely scented splash of colour
To brighten up a room…
~
So Mum, ‘thanks’ for all you do,
There’s one more thing I’d like to say,
You deserve this bunch of flowers,
All my love on Mother’s Day xx
~
By Carol Cameleon 2015

This was written as a competition entry to win my lovely Mum a bouquet of flowers for Mother’s Day.  So winner or not, this is a virtual bunch of flowers!

My blog is like a doorway ~ poem #WonderfulWorldofWriting

blog doorway poem wonderfulworldofwriting writing blog linky

My blog is like a doorway…

~

A warm welcome to my blog, you will see it’s like a house.

Come over the threshold, turn the handle, the proverbial ‘mouse’.

 ~

In the hallway it’s fresh and light, it’s the decor, it’s the ‘theme’.

It’s personal choice, it reflects your blog, it’s the first thing to be seen.

~

My visitors are my ‘followers’, they come by every day.

A refreshing drink and a chat, it’s great to hear what they say.

~

Into the kitchen, kettle on, time for coffee and cake.

I love to hear their thoughts and banter, with the ‘comments’ that they make.

 ~

Into the lounge, take a seat, make yourself at home.

Escuse me a minute, look around while I answer the phone.

 ~

Someone’s got lost, their sat nav’s broken, they don’t know where to go,

When you’re trying to find my blog, you rely on good ‘SEO’.

 ~

Back again.  What to do when the comments halt or stall?

You can get fresh air from a proverbial ‘window’ when you hit a blog ‘brick wall’.

~

Up the stairs, one by one, this is your ranking goal,

A comfort break to the bathroom and of course the ‘blog roll’!

~

So, is your ‘house’ on a busy road or is it a dead end?

Good content’s vital for your blog, remember this my friend.

 ~

Just like a house, a blog’s good structure really is the ‘key’,

Come in, through my ‘doorway’, you’re always welcome, come and visit me!

By Carol Cameleon

I published this poem months ago on this very same blog but aside from being snowed under with my current writing project, I have been musing on how far my blog has come.  With that in mind, I wanted to give this another airing 🙂
