Of Writers and Readers I

Part 1 of 3

Cathartic the writing
the pen to the page
Words from the poet
the seer and sage
To capture life’s moments
like a photograph here
And bring to the reader
a little more cheer

The Poet’s Gift

Beauty in
a little verse
Never sad
and never terse
Words to cheer
and bring a lift
All within
The Poet’s gift

Giggle and cheer

To Alcampo for brunch
with the family in tow
London Road, Brighton
devoid now of snow

Good conversation
Flat whites and beer
A nice place to come
for a giggle and cheer

And I think this is what
the weekends are for
as with family close
I could not ask for more

Pixelated Smile

On Rose Hill Close in Brighton
on the corner by the wall
A pixelated smiley face
colourful but small
we spied as we were waiting
for the traffic lights to change
Not something you see every day
it really was quite strange

No clue as to its purpose
but maybe that’s the thing
Just a little cheerfulness
some merriment to bring
If so then it has done its job
with flair and even style
As for us when we drove by it
it brought to each a smile

Caryopteris

With delicate blue flowers
Caryopteris in the sun
Brings a certain cheerfulness
Enjoyed by everyone

And though Autumn’s round the corner
The beauty here displayed
Retains a bit of summer
As the green begins to fade

Springtime Cheer

It’s in my garden again
the yellow that speaks of the sun
Forsythia glory shouting aloud
that Springtime has begun

And the green is lusher too
Winter fades away
The grass upon my lawn suggests
it’ll soon be mowing day

The time for that will come
but for now the yellow’s here
Replacing all the winter blues
with lots of Springtime cheer

Ripple and Promise

fullsizeoutput_1934

A ripple on the water
caught my eye today
Squinting in the sunlight
with the New Year underway

In my imagination
I saw hope and promise there
Heralding a brand new start
Reflected in the glare

So I’m trusting to its promise
That hope will stay this year
Like the sunlight on the water
Replete with joy and cheer
