Impetuous

Impetuous is my middle name
An impromptu affair
That loves the spur of the moment
Loving life with no care
Looking for fun and a challenge
With adventures to explore
Laughing when dancing in the rain
For the now is so much more

But will the now catch up with me
Will it cease to be a craze
Will it offer less as time goes by
Will it cease to then amaze
For now is great and that’s just fine
But maybe then is best
For isn’t looking forward great
And all part of life’s zest?

So impulsive may suit me fine
And living in the now
But maybe there is so much more
If only I allow
A little time to think and plan
To wait expectantly
For delayed gratification
To kick in instantly

Time

Judgement Day

The net is getting tighter
Like a noose around his neck
So soon he’ll have no place to hide
As no box will be unchecked
For when all’s done and all is said
The truth always come out
And when it does he’ll hang himself
Without a shade of doubt
Not by what he may well have done
But moreso where he’s failed
To do the right time; act fairly
Not covered up his trail
Of lies; deceit; abuse; neglect
Call it what you may
For at the time of reckoning
It will be his judgement day!

On The Tides of Ink

If I didn’t write, would you miss me at all?
Or am I merely letters on a page?
Words in the ether
Phrases; lyrics; verses
Call them what you may?
Am I simply these or am I meaning?
Music to your ears?
Poetry to the heart?
Tugging at the life strings
That join us together
Uniting us in universal concord
Resonating through the years
In stanzas of contemplation
Musings married in a scripts of thoughts
That wax and wane on the tides of ink

Happiness

So wretched is the heart of man
Who strives to thus attain
A wealth in riches, money or
Extrinsic reward gain.

How flawed he is in searching for
Material luxuries
Summoning will for more and more
Hoping to be happy.

For such craving will only lead
To senses unfulfilled
And sours even the finest times
As such quest wrecks the thrills

For happiness cannot be sought
Cannot be chased; pursued
Yet more so is a consequence
That comes about; ensues

A quality or side effect
That resides in the flow
Of optimal experience
To leave its mark a-glow

And though perhaps it sometimes seems
Elusive at its best
Through conquest of one’s inner self
Shine rays of happiness

Based on the theory of “flow” as researched by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi (2002)

Rain Moods (Haiku)

Why is it the rain
Washes away tolerance?
Does it shrink the heart?

  

New Forest

We’re going on our holidays
We’re heading out down south
To lands where ponies graze at will
Quite near to Beaulieu’s mouth

To wander in the forest
Meander near a stream
To walk amongst a jewel in crown
To live and breathe the dream

Where heath rolls out before the eye
And coppice rolls into
A forest that dates back through years
And really’s far from “New”

And for a few days wrapped in peace
We’ll take a little while
To enjoy such magnificence
And beauty with a smile

Let’s Be Solution Focussed

Let’s be solution focussed
Less being so intent
On all our problems, woes and strife
That push in less relent

Let’s map out a way forward
Consider hitches too
Then board the bus determined to
Bringing goals right into view

Where aims are clearly marked out
Our vision’s crystal clear
And motivation surges through
Our head from ear to ear

Where persistence is the buzz word
With dedication’s might
Encouraged by what’s gone before
To get to the end sight

And then when we’ve discovered
This way’s the way to go
Let’s sit back, contemplate, enjoy
And just go with the flow
