For a smile

There are times such as these
when alone with my pen
and lavender scent in the air
I will, pensive of mind
sit here and unwind
and think of some verses to share

Life has that for me
Moments captured in time
which I can hold as a thought for a while
Yet as is my way
and my forte each day
I will write each one down for a smile

Rose ‘n’ Daisy

The postman brought us yesterday
a box from two good friends
who’d very kindly, lovely flowers
to us, they’d thought to send
It really was a nice surprise
Gave us a warming glow
‘Cos it’s nice to get a present
by surprise from friends you know

Summer in mind

A patch of wild flowers growing
in the churchyard yesterday
Reminded me that summer
wasn’t all that far away
And yes, I know it’s over
by the chill that’s in the air
Felt now come the mornings
seen by coats worn everywhere

And yet these little wonders
caught on camera for a smile
Serve as a reminder that
the sun brings us meanwhile
Beauty never disappears
It’s always there to find
And though the warmth has left us now
it’s summer in my mind

Eyebrow of the sun

15 of 16 in the Jemverse ‘Venetian Vistas’ series


The expression of the sun
as it set on our last day
across the sea out to the West
was a marvellous display
The gold across the ocean
on the water spoke to me
as I heard the voice of sunshine
and the echo of the sea

It was like it cocked an eyebrow
tinged with gold as if to say
a ‘Bon Voyage’ and fond farewell
to speed us on our way
So smiling we responded
raised a hat and gave a wave
capturing this moment
as a memory to save

Dandelion II

Awakened by sun
petals stretched out
Full bloom
I exude yellow
and smile

Brightening

Just a few words is all it takes
to change the way I feel
Escapism? maybe sometimes
but they have the power to heal

Just a few words each morning
finds a way to say
something new to bring a smile
and brighten up my day

Friday afternoons

Friday afternoons are great
‘Cos I don’t have to work too late
I’ll aim to finish at Midday
the weekend starts, Hip Hip Hooray!

Maybe some music and a beer
to set the mood and bring the cheer
As then the time is a good friend
‘Til Monday morning comes again
