The hope from flattened light

On a grey day, light flattens
to North or East or South or West
the brightness that sun and blue skies bring
on a grey day is suppressed

Yet I am still hopeful
as to South or West or North or East
the brightness that sun and blue skies bring
lies waiting for my eyes to feast

Wolfgang

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
has come to join our clan
Living with my daughter Gracie
and her partner Lee, the man

A Patterdale Terrier by breed
His black fur tinged with brown
He’s absolutely gorgeous
and we’re so pleased that he’s around

Privileged

Looking out on grey water
from Lower Thames Street
to the Shard there on Southbank
architectural feat
I’m reminded the privilege
I share with the few
of working in buildings
which command such a view
of London’s surroundings
and tourist attractions
Oft taken for granted
with other distractions

Sunshine in a flower (revisited)

No.8 of 8 in ‘The sunshine series’ from Jemverse

Though the sun shines on all flowers
it excels in just the one
With golden yellow flowers
exuding summer sun

Sunflowers are wonderful
Sunflowers are great
Sunflowers reflect the sun
and truly emanate
the essence of its namesake
be that ‘sun’, ‘soleil’ or ‘sol’
Sunflowers, like the brightest star
stand tall and keep me whole

Sunshine III revisited

No.7 of 8 in ‘The sunshine series’ from Jemverse


Sunshine is my solace
and a tonic for my soul
It reminds me who I really am
and helps to keep me whole

Sunshine breathes new life in me
and I can never have my fill
For as a child of summer
I will pander to it still

Sunshine is my kinship
and will always be a friend
And I would be in heaven
if the summer had no end

Sunshine IV revisited

No.6 of 8 in ‘The sunshine series’ from Jemverse

It’s when those sunshine moments
catch you unaware
when beams of warmth come calling
and find you waiting there
And you are in your element
when summer calls your name
and dulcet sounds you’ve longed for
spring back to life again

Sunshine is revisited

No.5 of 8 in ‘The sunshine series’ from Jemverse

Sunshine is
as sunshine does
with warm embrace
and all because
sunshine is
my saving grace
and always brings
a smile to face

Sunshine sings a happy song
Lifting me the whole day long
