Imminent Equinox

entry picture

Subtle signs are showing

That springtime's almost here

Though winter wind still blowing

Birds sing with chirpy cheer

Trees standing there half naked

Grow costumes of budded leaf

Mother nature refills

That which has

Been taken

From a cold hearted winter thief

Paper Hearts

entry picture

Paper hearts don't beat

They tear

Of Valentine's?

He was not aware

All she wanted

Was a rose of red

But spending money

Brought him dread

She rolls her eyes

And looks above

As he tells of how

She has his love

These words sound

Empty

Said without cost

That was the day

Her love

He lost

Then came the 14th day

Of Feb

A new lover she found

Valentine's Day

Lessons

entry picture

Learning won't stop

After uni, college or school

You may reach the top

Yet still feel a fool

For each day

Brings new teachers

In many a disguise

Though sadness

Will feature

In the end

You'll be wise

We're all learning

Lessons

Just not in a class

We find out 

The best things

From our days

As they pass

Ordinary people

(With titles)

To them

Their freedom

Was vital

So nice

Then turned 

Mean

When they

Let down

The Queen

Now off

On their

Bike

They have 

Cycled!

Eggs before hearts

entry picture

On hearing about Easter eggs going on sale on Christmas Eve

 

No chance for cupid

To pick up his bow

Not yet melted

Those men of snow

When what was on

Shop shelves

Full show

But  a shiny

Easter egg

 

Left uneaten

Chocolate money

Leaping Lords

Replaced by bunnies

We're still in winter

Though a little sunny

Christmas on 

Last legs

The writing process

entry picture

It's always the same New Year's resolutions for me...to write more often! Happy New Year to all ...

At First

Just a thought

Then some paper

The words

They came later

QWERTY was flirting

But kindly 

I declined

It's demand

Held a pen

In my hand

And began
