Farewell To Stepper Point

Farewell to Stepper Point
To Pentire Head today
To Lundy’s gaping hole
And Rock and Daymer Bay

Adieu to Polzeath beach
To Wadebridge and Padstow
To Rumps and islands in the sea
Now time to tally ho

To Cornwall fair and mild
With thrift and gorse so bright
Goodbye my lover by the sea
Your memories shine bright

Stepper Point

Beautiful Lily (Haiku)

Beautiful lily
Symbol of tranquillity
An icon of peace

Nature’s Paintbrush

Drops from Nature’s paintbrush
Splattered on the wayside
In a bouquet of resplendent colour
Dotted in the hedgerow
Amidst the fragrances of Spring
Pouring out into the landscape
As buds burst into bloom

Orange Bloom

Oh Mr Bee, come down and see
This gorgeous orange bloom
With nectar cup all opened up
To leave you plenty room
To buzz about and wiggle in
With joy and so much glee
To party in her petalled folds
With much frivolity
And sip from syrup core as though
It’s like the finest wine
So come on, Mr Bee, fly in
For this flower is divine!

St George

Today’s the day to be a knight
As in those days of old
To overcome the power of bad
With bravery so bold

For out there in the world about
A dragon lies in wait
Destroying all pure beauty bright
In flames of greed and hate

So step up like the saint, St George
And fight for truth and light
Imbuing strength from deep within
To conquer darkest night

And slay the beast that dares to mock
The good in life and grace
With sword that’s poised to destroy ill
Bring peace unto this place

The Chair

There is a chair
And it just sits
Sits in the corner
Aging in its patterned robes
Cosseting memories of the past
And I think how many stories could it tell
Of those who have rested
Rested within its comforting arms
Over the years
The yarns; the anecdotes; the tales
History retold; times gone by
Now abandoned bar the cat
The cat curled up
Asleep in the chair

The Open Book

Let my mind be an open book
Where the pages are turned a day at a time
And the words penned in the ink of experience
