Flat white to go

Flat white to go
by the Thames in the sun
best way by far
that a day is begun
Watching the river
flow silently by
beneath a pale blue
and promising sky

Waterloo bridge on the
left, and to right
St Paul’s Cathedral
familiar sight
Flat white to go
on London’s South Bank
A few moments respite
with coffee I drank

I’m everything

I’m dancing. I’m rhythm
I’m words on a page
I’m pen and I’m words
from a poet and sage

I’m flowing and form
I’m stanza and verse
I’m meaning and substance
from design and yes, terse

I’m everything pleasure
I’m zest and I’m joy
I’m not holding back
from affection or coy

I’m abundance and spirit
I’m the words that you read
I’m a song that needs singing
from a longing and need

Instapoem

I’m an Instagram poem
a cliche I know
But just stay with me here
and go with the flow
For there’s motive and plan
in the words here you’ll find
born from a thought
that took seed in my mind
As I hope that the reader
if they want an encore
will give me a follow
on Jemverse for more

For an ear

I am music and pleasure
for those with an ear
Hours of contentment
for freedom and cheer

I give goosebumps and shivers
those down the spine
when you hear something good
or especially fine

Sharing

I am laughter and fun
and everything good
Which if you look around
as you know that you should
You will as I do
find that most everywhere
there is laughter and fun
with a duty to share

All Colour

I am all things colour
I look for a smile
Especially when
they’re not seen for a while
But it’s easier when
the sunshine comes out
and there’s things like
Spring and Summer about

Jimi

And here’s me listening
with nigh on fifty years passed
New sound from Jimi’s sweet guitar
still giving me a blast

“Both sides of the Sky” – a new release
in twenty eighteen
Music still gives me goosebumps
however it may seem

Sweet listening pleasure, simple things
I’m in my element here
Star-spangles live on through the years
for those who have an ear
