Heads in a Spin

Heads in a spin

is it inside out

or outside in

or upside down


I’d like to get off

this mad roundabout

just for a while

take a break


Heads in a spin

I need to think smart

out of the box

make my life easier


Going to take it slowly

not get in a fluster

take a step back, Breath deeply

and change the way I think



Change is swift

Brilliant blue skies

intense searing sun

white fluff clouds

Rhythmic calm sea

wind blows gentley

I close my eyes

peace all around


Ominous dark skies

heavy black clouds

The air is stiffling

heat is almost suffocating

Gun grey sea

Crashes with force

Large rain drops fall

intense heavy bursts

no peace now


The wind blows quickly in

and out just as fast

calming down again

dark clouds have moved

the sky is a brilliant blue again

the sun shines intensely

the sapphire sea is calm

a gentle roll of the wabes

peace is regained



The Cable Car

I hide my fear of heights,

on a cliff edge, or a high building

I go to jelly.

Sometimes I have to get through fear

to enjoy those things around me


The cable car descends towards me

If I look where I’m going I will falter

I board, with my back against the mountain view

It rises slowly, I fix on the ocean


Big houses now appear smaller

Tops of the trees appear under my feet

The ocean is wider and further away

as distance between me and the ocean is lengthened


Washing appears on lines in gardens

banana plantations, terraces of vegetables

The roads look like those on a google map

Cars are like ants whizzing along


As I peek behind me big clouds appear

they seem to be closer

The harbour is now a dot in the distance

The cable car stops, we are at the top


I breath a sigh of relief

the view is magnificent

my fear over come, it was worth it

However I still have to get down again

Volcanic shoreline

Sea rolls gently against

blackĀ  volcanic shoreline

dark clouds hang in

the midnight blue sky

No movement in the air

palm trees remain stationary

the sun starts to rise

around the headland

Pale orange, yellow and pale blue

lights up the sky

There is peace in the air

no sound

just the rhythmic crashing of the waves

on the volcanic shoreline

The edge of the horizon

At the furthest point

at the edge of the horizon

The lights on the hillside shine.

Twinkling in the darkened sky

a satellite shone brightly


peaking at the edge of the horizon

a tiny shaft of orange light

appeared in the morning sky

Just saying its early ‘hello’


The hillside lightens around it

The sun rose steadily,

within minutes, the sky lightened

The sun shone on the ocean


Twinkling and glistening

as the waves moves steadily

Crashing gently on the rocks below

The morning had dawned again.


It’s finally here

I waited a year

my case is packed

I’ve checked it twice

I’m panicking wildly

have I forgotten anything

I’ve my toothpaste and bikini

what more do I need

The sun will shine brightly

the sky will be blue

Drink lots of wine

Sleep all night

Enjoy the scenery

and relax for a week

where am I going

you ask and I say

I’m off on my holybobs

Hip hip horrah
