Now we are England on our own

Shackles of Europe over thrown

Can we return to pound shillings and pence 

Will we now put up a fence

 

Will we revert to potatoes with dirt

To half a cucumber not a portion

And also now without caution

Spring not salad onions

 

But I hear you cry

What about ounces and pounds

Alone in Love

I don't regret .. how to deal
With one .. I'm deeply adore
I don't regret how to feel
Someone .. I'm certainly sure

I don't forget .. lonely day
Before we met .. it was so long
I don't forget .. you .. to say
Being alone is really wrong

I don't ask .. about the past
Your past .. has gone .. no return
I want to take you for the best
For me you're my baby born

In time crossing over into deep waters

the ferry of slow emerge takes control

 

A monk like skeleton opens his hand

wanting a coin to protect the soul

 

Stops at the shore with choices of mist

deeds in vain and memory decay

 

Sinking into depth of unknown

souls purpose shores obey

Of all the things

that you can lose

there's nothing quite as hard

 

as the losing of your wallet

cause it contains

your credit cards

 

stolen identity

leads to futility

there's nothing you can do

 

now someone

has your number and

someone else is being you.

I came across this online page 
Just random well worn words
no restrictions on their usage

They were left deliberately 
for refurbishment or repair
Free to any good home
that could be trusted with their care

So I gathered them up
and gave them a shuffle around
Now they have a new home

A Warrior

Born in a dusky town,

Was a little girl brown,

Had an invisible crown,

Who was destined to get renowned.

 

As the time flew,

Trials and Tribulations hit her through,

Poverty and Despair only grew,

But she did not give in to.

 

Armed with nerves of steel,

Filled with determination and grit,

In a world of ordeal,

She never did quit.

It’s time to fly, 

Like a bird, 

My wings becoming free. 

 

Stepping among a strange curdled current, 

A sea beneath, 

Arms just out of reach. 

 

For in the sea, 

Of mind and open eye, 

My world falls dim. 

 

I guess there is, 

Another way, 

To die and be free again.

A Seashell hollow, 

A sacred branch beneath yellow skin.

That permeates where old age starts.
