Mellifluous

There are quite a lot of sounds
that are pleasing to the ear
Mellifluous they may be called
Sweet and smooth to hear

For me, one in particular
made by a little chap
My small brown dog called ‘Obi’
and when he drinks with just a lap

Random acts of kindness

A random act of kindness
in a word or by a deed
can bring a ray of sunshine
to someone who has the need

And when it happens, always
you can rest assured and know
that little thing you said or did
has brought a nice warm glow

Allotment

We have a new allotment
It needs some T.L.C.
But it has a lot of promise
for a future yet to be
It’s got a lot of grass on it
which I will have to mow
But there’s some soil that’s ready
to use right now and grow

And it’s just around the corner
from where we live, not far
So we can walk there with a spade
and not need to use the car
It’s even got a little shed
where we can store some stuff
Quite handy for a cup of tea
if the digging gets too tough

We took a picture as it is
whilst it’s still overgrown
Something for comparison
when it’s been dug and mown
And when it’s had some summer sun
and rains have been and gone
We’ll hopefully have some produce
to show for what we’ve done

Spiralling

And so another weekend
and another week to come
Life continues, spiralling
with work and play and fun
And time continues marching
though at times I am bemused
as it can go slow or fast or even
backwards! I’m confused.
Sometimes I can’t keep up with it
Sometimes it’s left behind
it never seems to be the same
and can’t make up its mind
Perhaps that’s part of getting old
or maybe it’s just me
So never mind, I’ll live with it
and let both simply be

A journey begun

Screen Shot 2014-06-29 at 11.22.54

I try to write a poem every single day
Sparing time for words about working or just play
About eating stuff or sleeping or drinking cups of tea
Or listening to music or walking by the sea

Sometimes I can’t find a pen (at least one that I like)
which is a bit frustrating and unhelpful to my psych
For writing is a part of me and the journey I’ve begun
So I need to get some verses out before a day is done

I’ve said before that this can be about ‘most anything
For I have the knack it seems to make words come alive and sing
So even if the subject is one verging on the boring
The way I’ll craft the words will keep the reader there from snoring

So I’ll just keep on writing and publishing each day
And I know that folk will join me for the journey on the way
They’ll share a little, read some words, enjoy a verse or two
And mention this is passing which will bring it back to you

So the circle replicates itself on the journey we’ve begun
One that tells of life in words, of ‘joie de vivre’ and fun
Wordsmithery in crafted words from me ‘most every day
Partnered by the readers who’ve joined me on the way

Went for a walk

Went for a walk
down by the sea
Near to the waves
as they sang to me

Went for a walk
up on Sussex hill
Near to the Downs
a longing to fill

Went for a walk
along river’s bank
always a thrill
to be perfectly frank

Went for a walk
just down the road
and thought of this rhyme
there as a I strode

Brighton for Brunch

fullsizeoutput_242

To Brighton for brunch on a Sunday
egg muffins and hot cups of tea
Meeting some Crouchers who now live close by
Holly, Grace, Sally and Lee

Later we may do some shopping
I believe there’s a record shop here
so maybe I’ll get some new music
as long as it’s not very dear

To Brighton for brunch on a Sunday
a great way to filter some time
especially here with family
when the company is so fine
