The satisfaction of a quiet morning


And in these quiet moments
at the beginning of the day
the peace each brand new morning brings
before the frack and fray
I breathe, I smile, I lift my head
and look up to the sky
safe in this brief contentment
which will always satisfy


Slice of Life

A poet’s life is never dull
for there is always stuff around
to capture inspiration
and write a few words down
It might be quite innocuous
that others rarely see
But captured in some lines of verse
Provides a remedy

For me a rhyming couplet
usually works out fine
although finding words to fit
is sometimes taxing on the mind
But the satisfaction that it gives me
is worth the toil and strife
with the pleasure there of capturing
a little slice of life



A hint of promise
brought by the warming sunshine
is all that I need
