Way passed the sleep hour.
I stand surrounded in surreal stillness.
This moon shy night admits no ray.
Penetrates my mind. A church bell chimes:
And the deadly silence strikes
That deep dark hole of the head.
Nothing is awake.
Yet, something appeals. I know it is out there.
Minutes tick by.

The leaves are blossoming.
The time of lime green ripeness is here.
They cling onto the branches,
Their tips winnowing in the gentle breeze.
The few leaves which cling no longer,
Rustle on the floor
And are swept away at dusk.
The branches continue to shake
And the leaves, in their vitality and freshness,
Partake in the knowing, changing course.

This place I cant leave
Though its here I grieve:
A long lost desire,
Ceased to a misfire.
Its also a place I’ve learnt to Love,
To soar into the distance High Above,
To express the joys of my soul,
And to take in Life as a whole.
To accept balance, delicately
And seize Earth’s offerings, intricately
To strive forward, positively,
Overcoming all negativity.
To touch smoothly,...

This spontaneous outflow of emotion has come again
Its been quite a while now, old friend.
You who made the Golden Glow of the sun none
And seemed to pave the way all too soon.
But the tide has changed now, like I once thought it did.
The poetry of soothing sensation,
The feeling of all a-new, has come again
To rejuvenate my senses, and yours.
To think and feel passions new to me,

Walking the dog
The grass is swaying, in the morning breeze, moving gently, tops of the trees
Intoxicating smells, whilst breathing in air, taking in sights, nature does share
Out for a stroll, just walking the dog, spot a young couple, having a snog
Slides are empty and swings are still, kids are playing footy, just over the hill
Birds are chirping, singing their song, I keep on listening ...

Respect that although we come from different walks of life, we are one
Embrace other cultures, allow peace and harmony among all walks of life
End this war on immigration, before it becomes to late and we have to look back on
Damage caused to the lives of others because we wouldn’t change our selfish ways
Open your hearts...

Life - like the sound of a bell
Bold at first but fades to a whisper
Who would be the one to tell
Perhaps a mother brother or sister,
Past your peak and gone to seed
Your realisation is sudden it would seem
Most of life sat in thought
Just idle dreams of what could have been,
The recognition of this phase of being
Propells you forward with purposeful meaning...

Swept away by these waves of confusion,
Iam now stranded in the island of chaos.
Just yesterday I was dreamily looking into the horizon;
Peacefully sailing in my boat of bliss.
I didn't see that big wave coming,
I didn't hear the roar of thunder,
I couldn't smell the storm.
And now Iam all alone in this strange wilderness;
I see no light,I can...

If pain had no beauty
Where else would we be?
Loose, languid expression,
Unhurried of humbling;
Our hearts and minds spread less
Than their broadest breadth.

If I'm the Master of my fate,
Is this all that I could create?
So then, I, Captain of my soul,
Have steered me to a life of dole.

You are sunkissed hair
All seaside skin
The tomboy princess
Scraped knees, bruised shins.
A tree climbing angel
My hide and seek belle
All beauty and promise
Like an old wishing well.
Such a natural leader
As you're learning and growing
You shine like a beacon
So head strong and knowing.
Bringing joy in abundance
As I watch you develop...

I sit and wait for my Darling babe
To come and tell me
She doesn't know I swear so much;
That I was once
All my life - ALL of it -
It's still there, you know!
She sees only a segment, thinks I
Belong in care -
Or on death row.
I once walked miles my way,
All alone in s...

It's not death that comes
its life that passes.
And all that’s left
must turn to ashes.
The sun will rise
and the moon will pass,
and the next day comes
when the night slips past.
So death cannot come
and make a claim,
for life moves on
and soothes the pain.

Who am I?
Am I all my mashed up mishaps,
Looping, creping, paper chaining through?
Am I clogs of wallpaint stains in
Bedded lanes of devine daisy dew?
Am I rivets, ratchets, harsh lines,
Chiseled by stilettoed hue?
All these thoughts, feelings and instincts;
Which are true?
I sup the type of other mother tongues,
And still ask you....
Who am I?

Sometimes I get caught in my stuff,
Sometimes life gets in the way,
Sometimes I have little patience,
And that's ok.
Sometimes I really don't like me,
Sometimes I just want to cry,
Sometimes I make the same mistakes,
But God knows I try.

The morning, crisp and broken by the curfew
Of rising larks and pigeons in the choir,
Its breaching sun is bursting through the grass dew
And thinning out the misty dawn's perspire.
Many rest upon their linen sheets around
And you, the only currently arise,
Solo is your ally when breaking the ground;
Undistracted, undisturbed - your alibis.
Your muscles twitch uncertain of their purpose,
Or whether purpo...

Have you ever met a "Schemie Burd"
From the south side of the city
Where social housing's at it's worst
And life is pretty shitty.
Her attitude is hardened
By the things she's seen and done
Like a 'favour' for a taxi fare
Turning tricks for half a ton.
People take a second glance
When they pass her in the street
You can see she was a looker, once

That ongoing story that I call my life
Is nothing but a total tangled mess.
It’s a disaster area; a no-go zone
And sometimes I feel like staying at home
It’s a random story with a spot of romance
Mixed up with elements of chance
And one way or another it’ll be soon resolved
And for my sins I hope to be absolved
The ongoing story that I call my life...

This life, these actions, the situations,
the people I meet, cars I drive, places I go.
All of the above make a life, my life.
What do you make of it?
The same as I do or something different?
Do you sum it up simply or in a complicated way?
My own views are hidden, known only to me.
Should I share them with you?
Is that wise? Not just yet.
There's more to follow...

A CHILDS EYE
Imagine a world of love and laughter
Of fun filled days and freedom till after
The tea time call or the playtime bell
Get back into line or you'll catch some hell
Imagine a world of wildness and wonder, of fun and jest
Of questions and answers and adventurous quest
When time was your own and life was a whim
To walk, to run through grass so long, to swim
Imagine a world ...

The child inside of me.
is the child I used to be.
The hopes and fears
Of the child inside
are still alive in me,
and every day, in every way
I’m still the child inside.
The child inside shapes the view
of the world I see today
and the eyes of the child
are round and wide
and I will be their guide.
For the child inside everything is new,

Here’s the suit I wore when I was newly born
It’s not worth taking to the charity shop
People today prefer brand new,
So may as well drop it in the skip
Ah, my favourite old t-shirt
Once I wore it every day
But now may as well rip it up and make it into cloths
It’s only thin, it’ll easily rip
I know that jacket so well
I wore it on my wedding day

TIMES BROKEN ARROW
And the world keeps rocking to the sound of the void
Spinning through time, a pirouette we can't avoid
And what have you done today
Did the fool on his errand slip by
Did you have much to say
As his time in your life seemed to fly
And the world keeps spinning into uncertain futures
The wounds in it's crust needing serious sutures
And what have you done today

Trying to put brave guise
deep down within I burn
In quest of eternal bliss

None were expectations

Folly proved true essence
of calling spade a spade
Gave in to most situation
never wished any return
Response stayed hostile

Do you remember me Jimmy from all those years ago?
I was the young guy and you the old hand
Do you remember when you said;
‘This job will do me until I retire?’
You were a bus driver and I was your conductor
And even you’d be impressed with what I do today
and how far I’ve travelled from those distant days on the road.
The thing is I thought of you the other day

I was happy and never knew it,
Sad and knew it so well.
Love slipped by but I never noticed,
though love has marked me well.
Winter passed and summer came
yet I was living in the cold.
My lover has turned and passed me by
and outside the world grows old.
Happiness is trapped for me
When love had cast its spell
I was happy and never knew it
Sad and knew...

Time sleeps in the distant desert,
and sitting softly under the yellow sun,
dried and dehydrated,
there is a seed that waits for the rains.
- I am that seed.
I wait for the rains with open hands
and when they wash over me time wakes refreshed
and I’ll drink all I need
-I am that seed.
The seed that longs to know
the secrets of this distant desert,
and when ...

The weight of the world on a spider’s web.
Everything is relative, life force flows in each blade of glass.
In each house is a guy or a gal just like me.
I see them from the Edge. This epiphany is mine.
Soon to leave my northern lands, south bound.
Writing to where? Autumn views from
Oldham Edge. When will I return?

CELEBRATING HARVEST TIME
Here we are celebrating harvest time,
a once a year event so important to everyone
of us, man and best alike. We light a candle,
burn some incense and drink some wine
in an offering to the gods at this sacred time of year.
You can feel the magical power all around you
coming from within and from the universe both at once.
We eat some bread and...

(This isn't quite right but here goes . .)
Now there’s a word I’ve longed to say
Let me be a film director just for a day
I’d bathe my sets with natural light
And keep my close ups tight
I’d cast a beautiful girl as my star
and keep her key light bright
She’d be in all my master shots
And I’d fade the soundtrack in soft
