A ray of sun captured (and revisited)

2 0f 7 in the Jemverse ‘Beach Huts’ series

I captured the sunset
at the beach hut today
Late in the evening
with a golden display

Reflective and gorgeous
the warmth of the sun
captured right here
as the day is all done

Beach Huts revisited

1 of 7 in the Jemverse ‘Beach Huts’ series

Stretching to infinity
Beach huts on Beach Green
Painted many colours
Brightest you’ll have seen

Here on the coast in Sussex
a haven on the beach
A little bit of paradise
there in easy reach

And don’t they just look gorgeous
Their colours bright on show
Quintessentially English
all there in a row

Scratch of pen

At this early hour a soft caress
as morning greets the day
and gently, with a growing light
pushes night away

A silence reigns, a pinprick fall
with no one else around
so scratch of pen on paper there
barely makes a sound

And inspiration freely flows
as words like morning come
and find the light of day until
my poetry is done


Bliss II

Across wet sand
as evening falls
the sea a whisper
silence calls
And here stand I
to witness this
exquisite moment
born of bliss

Found myself in Sussex

Found myself in Sussex
in fields of verdant green
Early Spring or Summer
the best that I had seen

Seemed time for adventure
in hills I hold so dear
The ones right on my doorstep
so close and yes, so near

So much for me to see and do
just wander for a while
Take in the sights around me
and always with a smile

These hills and fields of Sussex
my element is here
As all of this is part of me
and always brings me cheer

My Mum

Just like the summer sunshine
My Mother shines for me
As she has done throughout the years

So on this Mothering Sunday
Have a really special day
With all my thanks for being you
In every single way

About time…

Although it’s still winter
by the library today
I spotted some blossom
in the trees by the way
Pink and quite lovely
so in spite of the chill
it spoke of a promise
with a pleasure here still
that Springtime is coming
and not far away
An end to the winter?
About time I’d say
