We have nothing much to offer love,
Embarrassingly, we extend a nothing offer
We have very little to say about love
Ashamed that love escaped its heart-shaped coffer
We had high hopes once, for our forever-ever
Searching forever with higher hope
Scarcely do we have anything left of belief
Recognising that belief in love is beyond our scope
We have little time that...

Time heals, however, grief still bleeds the wound.
Life appeals, a brief hope you'll be immune.
Heartbreak recites a language unspoken,
Love's gone, though unforgotten; Love's broken.
Reminiscing, there's nothing to achieve
Love is, as it is, nothing remains; Leave.
Exploring your commitment, you both found
Love swam in shallows, then finally drowned

Monetary rewards of life
Established through labours long,
Disrespected by office minions
Jealous words from uttered tongues
Apathetic greedy offspring
Disinterested homebound wife
You purchase them their latest wish
If not, ‘’it's such an unfair life’’
Curled in her corner, soft-bedded
Contented, tail freely wagging
Unconditioned love transmitted,

Cream-crushed limestone, trodden underfoot,
Natural brown, an oaken hue,
The Cross, for crucifixion borne.
To die for you, and those true blue.
Sunrise, golden-edged blackened clouds,
Whose threatening veil hangs above.
Calvary, its slopes a verdant green.
Yellow sallowed his sorrowed love.
Yellow-greenish blue, the sparks that flew
as grey iron-headed nails ha...

I'm the warming summer sun
I'm the blue lazuline sky
I'm the bond between two souls
The answer, without the why
I'm your wished-for confidence
I'm the promise each has made
I'm the trust that two hands hold
A shared future unafraid
I'm the beat between two hearts
I'm the care, that both will cope
I'm the trust right from the start
Your belief; for I am HO...

I'm the chill wind that blows across your face
I'm the obstacle to winning life's race
I'm the hope that's lost when out on a limb
The uncertainty of your faith in him
I'm the hesitation felt in your core
I'm the question unanswered from before
I'm the misgiving you have in your heart
The reason you are sure you both should part
I'm your suspicion that all is not ...

This Fenland million-acred sky,
Perceivable vastness beyond mortal eyes
An atmospheric canvas of blue-washed dye
Souls unbound by expansive skies
This Fenland million-acred sky so wide
That fluffed white cl...

If all your world's a stage, my dear,
Contrived words in scripted scenes
Voice and thought directed, my dear
Exit stage left, and follow your dreams
The lady doth protest, my dear
Maybe an unworthy cause
There before you, your future, my dear
Dominate your life, without pause
If music be your food, my dear
Allow lover's tunes to play
Object to pizzicato, my ...

Stratford’s sonneteer and scripter.
Gladdened glove-makers girded groin.
Studious son: Sunny student.
Choice cusswords casually coined.
Dangled, dipped, disastrous rhythm,
Woo, weather, bed and wed.
Minor marries maturing Miss Anne,
Mistress Mother’s birth bed bled.
What withered within?
Hamnet’s demise, heartbroken by death?
Fleeing Poacher, teacher, soldie...

Sat still, his back resting against the dirty brick wall
He, like the facade that he leaned against
begrimed, likely unpleasant to the touch
He smiled a nervous smile, apprehensive, awkward
Cradling close, a defensive metal crutch
Many walked, avoiding him, clearly incensed
He was unwelcome, passers-by rejected him one and all
I walked between line painted boxed parked ca...

I have remorse, for deeds unaccomplished
I have disappointment, unfulfilled intentions wished
I have fears and worries, yet empathic for others' concerns
I have hope that previous melancholy never returns
I have sadness and anxieties, though I often appear joyous
I have the usual limitations and boundaries that annoy us
I have pride; I have shame, I’ve never been envious.

An absent abundance of hope,
Positivity retreats in each direction.
Peace teeters on a thinning rope,
You all yearn for unity and reconciliation
Nurturing desires for this fresh new year,
Eager anticipation for possible world cohesion.
Wished for prosperity and environmental cheer.
