The sims

Create one two three or ten

create both woman or men

let them live sad or happy

Create a wonderful family

Let them live free or without Free will

remind them to pay the bill

Make them happy make them sad

remove their toilet drive them mad

Kill them off let them drown

send in the psycho clown

give them motive find them a job

dont depress them or they'l become a slo...

UN CAFE E UN LIMONCELLO

  UN CAFÉ E UN LIMONCELLO

 

Un café e un limoncello

A coffee and a limoncello

Dopo il pranzo

After dinner

Un café e un limoncello

I am captivated by ritual

For me food and drink

Have to mean something

Dopo il riso , dopo il vino

Per piacere, please

Un café e un limoncello

After the rice, after the wine

There’s plenty of time

For a ...

YOGA NIDA

 

YOGA NIDA

(Sleep Yoga)

 

Lay me down flat

Yoga Nida

Let the tension

Flow slowly out

 

Here on the floor

Yoga Nida

Let me be still

Peaceful and warm

 

Sinking, sleeping

Yoga Nida

Velvet blackness

Surrounding me

 

The guru’s words

Yoga Nida

I drift away

My pain is gone

 

Lay me down here

FIRST CUT

FIRST CUT

 

The first cut is brutal

always deep with cold

blade tearing into timber

opening a pathway

for subtler strokes

slicing with sharpness,

carving strongly,

the base for intricate designs

on blocks gripped tightly

in the jaws of steel vices

 

The last cut is gentler

a loving after thought

adding a signature

to shaped and sha...

SEPTEMBER

SEPTEMBER

 

September arrived quietly

With the morning train

Catching us unawares

Still tanned from summer

Smoking in the goods yard

Discussing holidays

Reading of redundancies

 

A radio humming news

Of road accidents

And unexplained murders

In distant countries

Celebrity indiscretions

Distracting our attention

From gathering cloud...

Smile and Laugh

You can work very hard and long-

you can give of your best always.

But - do you know what ?

people won't like you if you don't 'smile and laugh'.

 

You can take all the stress that comes your way-

you can take lot's of hardships and the low pay.

But - do you know what ?

people won't like you if you don't 'smile and laugh'.

 

Yes you can take hatred,racism...

CASTING LOTS

  CASTING LOTS

 

Beauty yet resides in redbrick

Surrounded by railings

Charm in coloured tiles

A touch of stained glass

Roofs that sag still uplift

Spirits made melancholy

By the grimness of concrete

Rusting window frames

Though difficult to open

Allow freshness to enter

 

 

Not so in the stale chambers

Of breeze block and plastic

It Takes Courage

A Poem By Graham Robinson ' It Takes Courage'.

It takes courage to stay or go - sometimes..
It takes courage to say yes or no - sometimes..
It takes courage to 'smile and laugh' - sometimes..
It takes courage to be who you really are - sometimes..
It takes courage to even drive a bloody car - sometimes..
It takes courage to both care and share - some...

It Takes Courage ...sometimes

It Takes Courage to say Yes or No - sometimes..

It Takes Courage to stay or go - sometimes..

It Takes Courage to be who you really are - sometimes..

It Takes Courage to Laugh and to Smile - but not all of the while, just - sometimes..

It Takes Courage to face adversity and other bad times - sometimes..

It Takes Courage to keep  sharing and caring and trusting - sometimes..

Ghosts of Rivington Moor

Ghosts of Rivington Moor

 

On a clear day from this windswept range

your eyes can see as far as the coast

and the mountains of North Wales

in heavy rain they can see little worth talking about

blindfolded by a dismal blanket of cloud

 

Centuries ago these hills were ablaze

warning of invasion from foreign lands

it’s pike still stands in solitary recogniti...
