The Word

I found a word
It was quite small
In fact it wasn’t
much at all
But when I added
it to others
It blossomed with
it’s new found brothers

And suddenly
this little word
turned into something
Lines were blurred
And it became
just like a flower
Blossoming to
a thing with power

Saying Something

CAPITAL LETTERS THEN
WHAT’S THAT ABOUT?
SOME SAY IT IS RUDE
AND AKIN TO A SHOUT
BUT SOMETIMES THEY AID
TO SOMETHING I WANT TO SAY
SMALL CAPS AID TO VISUAL
IN A PARTICULAR WAY

From the silence

There’s an element here
in these words with an essence
as I capture my thoughts
from the past and the present
For me it’s an outlet
A poetic license
to say what I feel
with a voice from the silence

Finding words

This pen will find words
every day without fail
Whether I’m well
or whether I ail
For there’s always a nuance
I’ll want to portray
Of the life that’s around me
day after day

Aintree

It’s raining up on Merseyside
Aintree in the rain
Where I’ve come up from Liverpool
on an early train

There’s not much going on here
unless you are a horse
For here’s when the Grand National
is run on this racecourse

The safe warmth of home

Steel grey seas with iron chill
it’s with whimsy that I peer
at the beach I know so well
in summer brings such cheer
Yet now the winter’s icy hand
has me firmly in its grip
As grey green waters frenzied churn
with northern winds are whipped

So I with best foot forward
march swiftly ‘cross these stones
No lingering in winter times
for the safe warmth of home

December

No. 4 of 12 in the Jemverse ’12 months II’ series

December comes and tradition
sees the tree go up tonight
Decorations hanging all around
‘most everywhere in sight

For us it sees a birthday
Holly’s twenty-five this year
and sharing it with Christmas
always brings us all good cheer

So here’s a berry-red reminder
at the last month’s curtain call
Another year to pass us by
Seasons greetings to you all
