Perfect Desert

Fruit custard tart with

Light crumbly pastry

Light vanilla custard

Topped with berries

Busting with colour

Or maybe..

Chocolate sponge

A rich chocolate sauce

Oozing with lusciousness

Or maybe…

Light lemon cheesecake

Tangy and sweet

Melt in the mouth

Delightful rich

Or maybe..

Vanilla ice cream swirls

Piled in a bowl

Topped simply

With flakes of

Cadburys chocolate flake

Perfect desert.

Perfect desert

A promise of a perfect desert

Light crumbly pastry

Light vanilla custard

Topped with berries

Busting with colour

Or maybe..

Chocolate sponge

A rich chocolate sauce

Oozing with lusciousness

Or maybe…

Light lemon cheesecake

Tangy and sweet

Melt in the mouth

Delightful rich

Or maybe..

Vanilla ice cream swirls

Piled in a bowl

Topped simply

A Perfect View

From the top of the hill

Forest stretches afar

Green patchwork hills

Sapphire blue sky

Wispy vapour trails

A  perfect view.

.

From the top of the cliff

Deep blue sea, Sun shimmering

White crests rising

Sailing boats bob up and down

Seagulls soar on the breeze

A perfect view

.

From the office window

Dark green trees

Blowing gently in the wind

Patchwork hiss in the distance

Pigeons bask in the sun

A perfect view

.

From the bedroom window

Small garden bursting with colour

Squirrels scampering across fences

Bees and flies sharing the air highways

Regardless of weather

Each a perfect view.

Something New – Poetry Journal

When Rio suggested a poetry journal excitement ran through me with such force, I realised that I had to give it a go.I know I like to write a poem on a daily basis and it is often very random. Here was an opportunity to write a poem which might reflect my mood, where I am at, what my thoughts are on a given day and what made me write a poem.

So here goes, Something New to get my teeth into. So today’s poem came from the inspiration of a surfer who I chatted to on twitter. Mad I know. I don’t surf and never have done, however he made me feel that I wanted more to life. I wanted perfection each day, what ever that may be.

Blue Skies as far as the eye can see

Surf rolling, high crests rising

Sun sparkling on the waters edge

Surfers riding the waves

Hope paddling out,

shock as the wave is caught,

Amazed as each wave is ridden,

Ecstasy as they glide with the water,

Disbelief of the power of the wave,

freedom, speed with the breaking surf,

Spiritual feeling, at one with nature,

One foot in the sand

one in the water

waiting for the perfect wave.

My Random Musings

Perfect end

Rushing around,

a hundred miles an hour

hardly time to breathe yet stop.

Phone ringing, emails pinging

people talking loudly.

So much to do, so little time

End of the day is close.

Home again, breathe again

relax kick of my shoes.

Long hot soak,

candles around the bath

bubbles up to my ears,

soft music playing

finally resting

Ice cream with a flake

movie on the screen

curled up with you

a perfect end.

Perfect start to the day

Frost glistens in the moonlight

Like a thousand twinkling stars

Iced leaves crunch underfoot

Into hundreds of tiny pieces

Mud on the ground is so hard

My feet no longer sink into it

My breath is white and still

Lingering in the air

The darkness encircles me

The moonlight shines the way

The early morning is crisp and cold

What a perfect start to the day
