Able bodied seaman

Day seventeen of Napowrimo.  Quite a silly poem today, of a nautical theme.


The galleon set sail
It left the land behind
The mainsail catching
The apparent wind
Across the ocean wide
The blinded Able bodied seaman
Was sent to keep and eye
For storms, Pirates and land
And from the east a ship appeared
As a dot in the horizon
It headed towards them
At great speed
The captain saw the ships gaining
Shaking in his boots
The ship levelled, pirates jumped
Commotion was all about
Abandon ship the captain shouted
As the Pirates put out the gang plank
And one by one the sailors jumped
Into shark infested waters
The moral of this little tale
Is one plain and simple
Make sure your able bodied seaman
Is able in his eyes
So he can see the Pirates ships
And save the sailors lives.

A Christmas Wish List

A handful of Stardust,

Jewels from the sea,

A memory of moments

Time spent with you

Sunshine and Roses

Droplets of dew

Sand in my toes

A Dip in the Ocean

Shared with you

How can I ask for things I don’t need?

There is nothing I want


A Smile on your face

Giggles and Laughs

Quiet gentle moments

Hands entwined

A kiss on the lips

A hug held tightly

Time spent with you



Chasing a space

Glorious weather

spend it outside

chasing a space

not easy to find

the sea is too far

the town too busy

i’m chasing a space

to loose myself

i just want some water

with greenery around

birds in the trees

the promise of spring

next week

when the weather is fine

I’ll be chasing a space

it will be the sea

to get lost in to ocean

soak up the rays
