Small in stature
yet she speeds like a two toned projectile
at an astonishing rate
she works the farm and fields
with almost human conscientiousness
to her the heights of any wall, gate or fence
you will never see tiredness or unwillingness in her eyes
only the enjoyment of devotional duty
and a keen readiness for the whistle
or a necessary...

She only has to write a few poem fuelling words
and already they are powerful enough
to send a metaphorical rocket to a metaphorical Moon
She pens one last full stop
and the enormously winged masterpiece
leaves the page on its flight
to world wide noteriety
In the past when her mind went inspirational word hunting
it would explore the universal sized realms of he...

Older we became
the more of what you had intended to do and to be
is gradually being brought into the light of our lives
step by daily beloved step piece by soul assuring piece
your patient silenced constancy of once misunderstood care
that has now finally been given the most worthy attention that it richly deserves
that we never paid to you before these belated realisations...

The oh so easy
oasey jacosey way
of getting uninstalled
from computer googling
and all that
real time wasting milarkey
is to install your minds determination
and physically browse
the most common site of all
going for a walk
get your real
not virtual feet
connected to open
not cyber spaces
your eyes lifted
from the hypnot...

I THOUGHT ABOUT A THOUGHT
A THOUGHT COMPLETELY DIFFERENT TO
THE THOUGHT THAT I HAD BEEN THINKING ABOUT
A MOMENT AGO BUT THEN I THOUGHT
WHY AM I THINKING ABOUT THOUGHTS LIKE THAT?
I THOUGHT I KNEW BETTER THAN TO BE THINKING
ABOUT THOUGHTS LIKE THAT!
SO I THOUGHT THAT I WILL TRY NOT TO THINK
ABOUT THAT THOUGHT
THAT I SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN THINKING ABOUT

Talking to someone ( an old lady )
who had told me about someone else ( an old man )
who had told her about someone else ( a young lady )
who had told him about someone else ( a young man )
so when the young lady had told the old man
the old man told the old lady
so hearing about this the young man told the young lady
to tell the old man to tell the old lady
but before he c...

I t was on a day many years ago
that my Grandma noticed in the newspaper
a one-off showing of the latest Walt Disney film
that was being shown on our local cinema
a sci-fi movie suitable for children
which she knew the kids would absolutely love
in a state of excitement she phoned the cinema
to book the seats
and being excited at the time of phoning

A poetess or poet is able to see into what he or she writes about deeply
and what he or she does write about is for everyone to enjoy
except for hatred which he or she does not poetically employ
so that his or her mind heart and soul cannot be stained with negativity
dark words, thoughts, shame and malice he or she disowns and does so
in order for his or her writings to fly free....

What use now his Mothers child bearing?
what use now his birth?
what use now his old age expected time on earth?
what use now his childhood, his youthful years?
what use now his Mothers goodbye tears?
what use now his naive bravado?
what use now his willingness to go?
what use now his dying flesh his pouring blood?
what use now the hopes of returning home as he thought he w...

Watching a black cat
stalking in the shadowed long grass
below my bedroom window
Moon breaks through the clouds momentarily
ghostily brightening the garden
Black cat looks up
stealing the moonlight
until the clouds close again
back to bed
my eyes closed
having stolen the darkness.

The service has been serviced
prayers mumbled and seen to be mumbled
by mumblers, a cosy epilogical spit and polished agreement
between priest and parishioners
then off they go
mind carrying their separate versions
of a perfect thought painted image of heaven
the sunday smile wearing flock exiting
having collected their shares
of self assuring peace

Seasonally whitened time of the year
each dawn declaring themselves with so bright a glare
Jack frostily fingering everything everywhere, and exhaled breaths turn to mist and disappear
icicle pendants bejewelling every ledge
the pace of life slows down to a lesser pace
tis the hillsides days of children, each to their sledge
smiles adorning each happy, cold flushed face

Is she to costume herself with facades just for him
falsifying, prance doll-like on his stage as the person she is definitely not
for the sake of upholding his belief in sordidness?
these collective, pretentious identities
irregularities, and bad habits, not hers
he abusively pours into the vessel of her true title
trying to endow her with darker motives and voices

Childrens laughter, mingles with the crashing of the foaming spray
as they happily build castles in the sand
while I am building more precious memories, dear children
especially everytime each of you hold my aged hand
in teasing shouts you all run off along the shoreline
riotous gulls in their shriekings, seem to applaud
attempting to shake off my weight of years in staggeri...

Through a long time ago street
the wind mournfully moaned its way like a bereaved lover leaving a graveside
as flurries of litter are being borne along on its unseen tide
and down this sulphorously blackened terrace lined collection of aged hovel type dwelling
staggers a lonely drunkard, whispering so many wondrous promises to no one but his inebriated self
yowling cats, ...

How many times will I have to swallow the remnants
of my lifes broken promises, ones that I had expected to have been fulfilled by now?
those, that I had hoped would have kept to their words and deeds
and in doing so, prevented me from seeing or hearing
the increased speeding up of each of my days dismantlings
hurrying me through the doors of the last chance saloon faster and f...

surely that couldn't have been him last night, the husband
allowing his pummelling fists to be used by a drunken wife beater!
Oh no! surely that wouldn't have been him last night
letting his voice be used to scream demonic profanities
into the defenceless ears of his victimised wife
by a slobbering beast!
Oh no! that couldn't have been him last night

You will not be here tomorrow or, any of the fortcoming days
you will, with your closed account of time
be failing to unlock, and walk in our front door
and enjoy your favourite meal that I will have set on the table for you
every evening like I used to do and still do just in case
only if it could
how wonderful it would be, should my imagination have the power
to bring y...
