All these colours

All these colours
Bright their palette
Life as canvas
Captured and lifted
As is my soul
Seen in them

Being Nice

It’s always so much nicer
being nice throughout a day
Instead of being horrid
(That’s what I think anyway)

It’s always rather better
to wear a smile upon your face
Instead of being grumpy
and just moping ’round the place

And to say a cheery word
like ‘Good Morning’ or ‘Hello’
is really rather better
than a sullen frown you know

And as it eats away inside
when you are spiteful or unkind
It’s almost a no brainer
to instead bring peace of mind

So this is why my poems
always find bright things to say
As it’s just a little method
to help me brighten up your day

My summertime delight

It caught me by surprise today
so bright it made me squint
when throwing wide the curtains
through the window with a glint

And later on I spied the sea
deep blue and very bright
The sun, the sky, the ocean clear
my summertime delight

Lights across the city

Bright lights across the city
and me fifteen floors high
I have a perfect vista
‘Neath a dark and starless sky

High above the lane of Bear
In Leeds, West Yorkshire way
Where I’ve travelled to from Southern lands
to work just for a day

It’s so quiet and peaceful
up here, yet very bright
A hundred thousand streetlamps
of a city lit at night

A brightening

Caught a movement in the undergrowth
Looked down at my feet
Saw a little face down there
Looking up, quite sweet
It was a friendly squirrel
Foraging for some food
I smiled and thought that seeing this
Was really rather good

Hurrying on my way to work
With a morning just begun
The night clouds parting up above
To make way for the sun
Sharing in this early hour
And meeting squirrels on the way
Will always bring a note of cheer
To brighten any day
