Elergy to you

 

Day 3

 

Good things come in small packages

you always said to me

like a precious stone

in a small box

i look at myself

this small girl who saw

her small grandmother

wise words from someone who knew

her smallness was her shell

inside she was a giant

the head of the house

the best cook of all

the one with treats in the pantry

the largest smile that stretched miles

the infectious laugh

that lit up the room

from a tiny acorn grows a giant oak

she reminded me when I was down

you’re not so small

you are tall

you are your own giant

now I smile

still small in height

and remind myself

that inside this package

was a very good person. Me.

Outside the window

From the noisy bustling office

warm, musty and dark

shards of bright light stream in

branch shadows dance on the desk

swirling, twisting, slowly then quickly

as I stare at the window

light fluffy clouds race by

they tease me to join them

the empty trees sway in the breeze

the world looks silent through the window

my mind wanders, to faraway places

to distant lands, to sun kissed oceans

my dreams take me away from my desk

to warmth, colour and squeals of delight

distant forests with chattering birds

floating lazily in downstream backwaters

hot sandy beaches and ice cold beer

a ring of the phone

I’m back in reality

gazing once more

outside the window

Blue Monday

The sky is grey, the rain pours down

New Years resolutions abandoned

the middle of January

no turning back

Gloomy weather and gloomy days

that stretch onwards before spring appears

Thr pot is empty, No money left

Christmas bills land on the mat

The most miserable day of the year.

as you slog through the grey

huddle round the fire

counting the hours, the minutes that remain

a cheer up is needed

a hug from a friend

lets make the most of this dreary day

Dance and sing

Eat cake, drink wine

Tomorrow will be pink tuesday

full of smiles once more.

 

It’s been a long time

it’s been a long time

since I wrote for myself

i had forgotten the words

that lay hidden inside

my feelings of love fog my brain

the want for more, must hide again

it’s time to move on

go back to the words

that can’t hurt or crush

They do have a future

they want more than now.

So time to put energy

Into my life, words that are spoken

written with feeling

telling my story

of want and lust

but most of all future

 

Silent Disco

DJ poised on stage to perform

The crowd wait in anticipation

He punches the air

The crowd roar

Then silence does prevail

The crowd dance

Punch their hand in the air

They dance the night away

Except for the odd shout

The music has disappeared

Head phoned adorns the crowd

Silence often is heard

No music, no singing

The crowd dances madly

They sing out of tune

They clap and whistle with delight

Once again the DJ not heard

Just the silent Disco is playing

Sunny side up

 

sunnyside

 

My heart sings as the sun shines

Birds join me as they hear my joy

My smile stretches from ear to ear

The brightness motivates me

My eyes dance in the sunlight

Happiness is all around me

So quietly I focus on all that is here

Each wonder is magnificent

Beautiful and shining

Each day my eggs

Are the sunny side up.
