That 'White iced Rain' ....

entry picture

....That 'White Iced Rain' is falling again,

the Winter scene all white and plain ...

That Winter white glow,

ooooo 'tis cold ya know!'

Children play snow men grow ...

 

Out in  morn 'where's the car'

its all so white can see so far!

 

Winter Woolies come out,

gloves come on,

birds fly high,

oh,

where's their bread gone!!

 

Scrape away...

.... 'The Lake District' ....

entry picture

.... The Lakes,

the 'Dream Land' awaits,

the scenery,

your 'breath' it takes!!

 

The mountain side,

the clouds that glide,

the sun beams through all natures pride ....

 

The lakes,

the tarns,

the rocky views,

the beauty it shines blow away the blues ....

 

The challenge we share,

all mountains lay bare,

our hearts and souls live th...

............ EYE'S .........

entry picture

 .... 'The beauty of our eye's shear blue as the skies,

the magic we see in all creation there be.

Lucky we are for we can see so far,

the blind are inprisoned by the 'blackness of tar'!

 

.... The mirical of eye's all colours we see,

the rainbow of life in all its purity.

All colours of eye's Brown, Blue, Grey or Green,

are colours of nature for all to be seen ....

'Being Positive'

entry picture

.... To see positiveness in someone doesn't mean their sane,

their makeup does not reveal their pain.

'Lovely day' is what we hear,

but underneath she shed's a tear.

A smile say's more than words to me,

for the little lass smiles for free!!

Sometimes a dear shoulder is a friend,

but a hug is always there to lend!

 

A positive outlook is what we need,

for ...

.... 'THEE INTERNET' ....

entry picture

... Its a BIG WORLD out there,

plenty of fish so beware!

For on thee internet darkness lies,

dont be fooled just be wise.

For us singles times are hard,

for the internet the truth be barred!

Places we go people we meet,

the internet is where we seek.

The 'WIDE WEB' is today's thing,

but danger lurks,

the bells ring.

Watchful eye,

open heart,

.... 'Hours That Pass' .....

entry picture

.... The hours pass quickly,

for thy mind is disturbed by the silence,

the use of ones body plays on ones soul,

the words from ones mouth does say many things,

for thine ears hear ones voice to make it whole!

 

I seek endurance for thy space I fill in,

I think of moments of the days I've been.

Life is precious be honest and wise,

we are human our eye's tell n...

..... 'YOUR TRUE LOVE' .....

entry picture

.... Our body language speaks many words,

for it cries out,

but not be heard ...

 'Love' is strong and true with in,

emotions are real and fresh from sin!

 We live each day in our own way,

we strive to succeed come what may ...

 Our human nature is wild and true,

our mind rules over what we do ...

  Do we know what lies ahead,

for life's a mystery it has ...

... Its a wide world out there,

dont be naive but be aware ...

The world is your oyster,

live it and be true,

your unique in every way,

so use it and be wise,

I tell you no lies ....

Before you is a world,

it will open your eyes!!

.... 'FEELING POWERLESS' .....

entry picture

.... Feeling powerless, the heart sinks,

why do I listen to what my mind thinks?! ....

My heart pounds,

I feel low,

my emotions on overload! .....

 Happiness may not last,

for my smiles are in my past ....

Sorrow comes to mind,

'Love Is blind',

 I laugh at myself,

thats being kind .....

Rise above,

there's no love .....

The power within has ...

..... SPRING.....

..... Spring is upon us you can smell it in the air,

the dafodills are blooming,

snow drops everywhere .....

The farmers are in their fields rounding sheep up with their lambs,

their bouncing around as if they've 'not a care' whats in our 'plans'!!

... The meaning of 'Spring' comes in different ways to me,

for spring puts a smile on my face you see.....

.....REMINISSING ......

entry picture

 

 

....... To reminis of the past,

'why?' you might ask.....

We think of what was,

how and when back then,

memmories come alive once more and remind us of our sen!!

..... We change mature and grow,

wisen up to things we know ....

We look older,

grow stronger of the beauty thats in us,

for age is a matter of time that beats us ....

We think of our...

'My Haweswater Poem' ....

entry picture

As I ventured up the lakes I felt the calmness and my busy world fade away...

As I set off on my mountain trek the stoney paths lead my way....

The grey mysterious sky turned blue,

the mountains became clear and in full view....

Up, up, away I go the blue skies turned to snow....

'High Street' looked picturesque as the snow lay on its chest...

I looked back at 'Rough C...

"MUSIC AND DANCE"......

Music and dance my big romance, I feel the rythm in TRANCE.... Puts kicks in my SOUL while ROCK makes me ROLL ...I like to move to the groove, I take rough with the SMOOTH... with POP I never stop!! ....JIVE I feel alive....I kick ass with trash .... HEAVY METAL i have a bash... CLASSICAL makes me chill while ROMANCE fits the bill ....musics my drive, it makes me glad to be alive .....

"MEMMORIES, SO UNIQUE"

entry picture

.....My memmories of tabs are unique to me, for each day she comes, I see .... In mind, in body, my heart does feel, her spirit is real ..... Grief is a funny thing, for you want to cry not sing!  ..... My baby's here no more, my heart does sore .... Times a healer for me to know, my tears that fall soon may go ..... Each tear that falls, my sorrow show's, may life lead me to what it bestow's ....

"KENTMERE"....

entry picture

Kentmere walk went so well as we walked I did dwell... The wind blew the sun shone too, walked for mile's over hill's and stile's. Windermere we saw, the view did not fail me once more... Wind so strong as we walked along, the camels back I did call, the hill's so small... Up and down as we walked the tops, the camels back did not stop. Away we go to the end, great day we had, a God send.....

FRIENDSHIP IS FOREVER....

entry picture

...I thought of you and wrote this..... I find a glimmer in my eye, I feel a need to stand by... You've been through the wars that is why I feel friendship close by..... I dont know you from adam, I'll tell you no lie, a fear of the unknown you will see in my eye!... We make choices in life to be strong, I feel in someone's heart is where you belong......

O little bird way up high,

flapping your wings as you fly by....

What do you see beneath those clouds as you glide through the nice blue sky?

.... As the sun shines you spread your wings,

a sweet lolloby the little bird sings....

BRITAINS MESSED UP......

entry picture

Our ancestors fought the war, for us to have something to live for. Us britains won the battle, only to get our strings pulled which makes us rattle. Each day we fight for our right, but money and greed take a bite. We're loosing britain cos we've been bitten by the commonwealth mitten. We should stand for our right and be heard for its all getting obsurd!!!...

AUTUMN LEAVES.....

entry picture

I love autumn colours, rusty leaves and mixtures of green, so many to be seen. As the night draws in a glow is felt within. The sunsets warm glowing sky comforting feeling to the eye.. Morning awakens, birds singing in the trees, sunrise brightens the sky shining down on them autumn leaves. Acorns fall to the ground, squirrels rummage for food to be found. Leaves rustle as we walk, nature at it...

TIME.....

entry picture

Time dictates what we do, we live by time all year through.. Clock ticks, time fly's, years roll by.  Each second we live, gone through a sieve, never to relive..  Tick tock, tick tock, 'why cant it stop?'.  Day light appears, clock ticks in your ears.. Time is preciouse each second that goes round, use it wisely cos time cant be found!  Time ticks by at a blink of an eye, its unique to you and...

SILENCE...

entry picture

The snow falls, all is white there is silence.. In the depth of darkness there is silence... In the shadows behind us there is silence... Mouth opens, no words there was silence.. The ear cannot hear for there is silence.  A crying child in the distance for no one knows of its persistence, then there was silence... The calming of silence echo's words in my ear 'relax my dear for silence surroun...

THE FEELING OF BEING LOST.....

entry picture

The feeling of being lost..... the emptyness you have found when nobodies around.  A sign post you find, go left, go right comes to mind.... The trees speak to you but you cant hear, the loneliness grows in you, you start to fear, the feelling of being lost grows near... your heart pounds, imagination go wild, you go back to being a child... 'Think straight' you say, someone may come your way.....

THE RAINBOW.....

entry picture

The sky goes dark, the rain comes down, and yet blue sky appears near by and there's sunshine all around...  In the distance a rainbow glows, different colours above the earth it shows. Good and evil in the sky, yet Gods glory close by... The rainbow is a sign to people everywhere, that there's peace on earth for us all to share... The rainbow in the sky tells a story, do you know why?  It appe...

A PHOTOGRAPHER......

entry picture

A photographer goes far and wide, to find his vision by his side.  Camera poised as he gets ready, to take the shot as he is steady.  Object moves, may fly away, will it come back? may be one day.  He poises once more to delight his core..  He see's the magic of his sighting, they appeal inviting.  'Take a shot' a fellow man say's, ' once again as I gaze, may I take your friendly face?'  Film r...

GAPING GILL....

Arrived at Clapham gear in hand, walked up forest walk and viewed the land. Through trees to the top, passed Ingleborough cave and up to the rocks.  Another mile or so, not far to go... G.G's in my view, well may be the 'loo'.  Further I go, I see more tents down below.  Down steps to brew tent, cup of tea 'arrr' heaven sent.  Get kitted up, helmet, knee pads, get supt up!  Winch is ready away ...

THE WALK...

We like to walk to feel the freshness in the air, we like to walk cos of conversations we share. The people we meet, the things we see, what nature has to show for you and me..   You keep fit as you walk along, climbing rocks may keep us strong. You see birds flying by, across the earths bright blue sky..   You feel joy as you look across, at fields and mountains, you never feel lost..   Your b...

We remember the best of days thats past, for memeories we share will always last. Hurt can destroy what love had made, but memories of late will never fade!..

We take each day in our stride, we always feel someone by ourside.. We should not forget what we've done...

RELATIONSHIPS...

Relationships, whats it all about?! We learn to love then it switches to pain, why cant we do without. As they say 'lifes a gamble', we play the game then it goes inside out... Biggest sin of all 'lust' is what we feel, yes its real.. An attraction within can make you sin and change the way we feel....
