The summer sunrise breaks the dawn
whilst horses graze on dewy grass
An enchanting scene from Yorkshire
through a veiled mist like opaque glass
Famous for rolling countryside
wildlife and wonderful coastline
The people are kind and friendly
the local cuisine is divine
Not forgetting the peaks and dales
to explore, climb, ramble and roam
Some folk call it Gods own country

The legend speaks of a healing reflection,
light that preserves inward perfection.
Luminous sap in moonshine elixir,
eternal womb sustainity in a tear.
Silent voice shape shifting flow,
water of mercy and compassion beau.
Providence sphere in radiant shape,
endurance not knowing to be afraid.
Beyond all withered conception,
drifting along virtues convictio...

After a month of rain, sunshine and clear sky
I have removed the plastic sheet to keep winter wood dry.
A cat sits on the top of the wood pall and hisses if dogs come near.
A smart cat has noticed the village dogs are cowards when met with resistance.
The felines around here feed themselves catching rats and mice
They eat the food you set out for them but wil...

5.30am until 7am
Monday to Friday before school,
up at 4am on Sundays
finished by lunchtime,
If you drop and break anything
clean it up and never lie to me,
such a scant induction as a
sixteen-year old village milk boy
in 1967, the Summer of Love,
the hippy anthem ‘ San Francisco’
scrolling through my head,
in the rain, I wore a floor-length cape

O life let me fall in love with you
Let me share the feelings true
I have so much within to give
Holding back is killing me
O life let me breathe anew
Fresh air of emotions
And things that lends happiness
Joy of living with people I love
O life let me hear your music true
Lyrics of songs romantic that gets me kicking too
Into the realms of Neverending lov...

Also by Ghazala lari:Breathing anew |
Teaming of cold angles,
Yellow in its breaming,
Dying early at night.
Which teals the ground,
Broken edges at the banquet.
Hollowing the precious thin,
A serpentine tincture of handy men,
Because a stream struck a chord between.
Beneath a creep,
The kingdom come,
Rotting hearts of deathly grace.
It streaks the blue,
A red in ...

My darling, it
Could never be
For you would eventually
And so we sit
Space staring us
This place to stay.

Amidst the clouds of ego and selfdom,
Olly found a falcon out of the world,
who surprisingly was kind and humane,
making Olly hurled and swirled.
Falcon stopped his journey abruptly,
making nest on a banyan tree,
sudden wining and dining together,
gave Olly million reasons to glee.
Years passed in this gambol,
making them forget the truth,
the world works on some norm...

Wars gestate in the wombs of Mothers
who will cry at the folding of a flag,
Yet cheer the burning of another.

July goes out with a bang
walls collapse inward
port-a-loo effluence falls as rain
The sniper eats his breakfast
a fine dust of asbestos layers his tongue
his fingernails split by ricochet’d brick
Waking with his door like a coffin lid atop him
the room disappears into a falling sky
neighbours stagger blind like ghosts looking for shoes
And still the ...
