The Photographers (Haiku)

The photographers
Capturing water’s ripples
Through their fisheye lens

Happiness

Happiness is a state of mind
A choice that beams within
A warmth that graces heart and soul
The essence of win:win

The face that never fails to see
The goodness and the peace
The smile that’s worn consistently
And never fails to crease

The place where kindness n’er gives up
Where empathy unfolds
Compassion, love, respect and more
Step out as partners bold

And hidden deep right out of sight
It hums away and sings
In reassurance pacified
Spirit of great blessings

Bad Hair Day

Written in support of stars.org.uk new fundraising idea to post a picture of your #STARSbadhairday on Facebook or Twitter and text GINZ47 £3 or HAIR11 £3 to 70070 to donate to this worthy organisation.  And what’s more you don’t need hair to do so – just post a picture of yourself first thing in the morning and help raise awareness of the aims of this charity.  

Crazy wild and frizzy frizz
Bad hair day – Lordy lord
Where brush and comb and cream to tame
Just cannot be ignored

Save else all kids will run away
And on the streets they’ll hide
And shut their curtains to prevent
The madness there outside

And warnings will alert – watch out!
Delirium in hair
Of untamed beast with fuzzy wig
On top of woman there!

And word will spread across the land
In Chinese whispers go
That hair that bad just ain’t so good
Like nest of mangy crow

For such a mane suggests much more
Unkempt and wild and free
A lion – a wilderbeast – a fright
And not just little me!

Rags Over Riches

Throw me rags over riches
Cast me poverty less strife
I’ll give peace and understanding
And won’t twist in the knife

I’ll call on strength; resilience
And power to love despite
The ways of darkness, fierce control
That take a bitter bite

And my throne will be one that is
A seat of harmony
Save crown of thorns that spears my head
From rose brier bleeding me

And I’ll still give out compassion
A heart that does not hate
Forgiveness at my very core
And hope that liberates

I’ll bear the load serenely
Whatever hits my face
And live a life that’s founded on
Pure kindness filled with grace

Are We Nearly There Yet?

Are we nearly there yet?
Those words all parents hate
That climb aboard with little child
And on the nerves do grate!

For as soon as engine starts up
And wheels begin to turn
They just believe that time will stop
As  journeys end returns

And in that very instant
All children seem to think
That by some “Who’ish” magic
They’lll trade those forty winks

And reach their destination
Almost immediately
Where “are we nearly there yet”
Will become – “what is for tea?”

Watch Out

He thinks he is a tiger
Or maybe a wild lion
Stalking across the prairie by
The power of Orion
With claws as sharp as pincers
And teeth honed to devour
The flesh of those he pounces on
Dare they stand still or cower
With eyes slit green with envy
And stealth his weapon too
Watch out the cat who sleeps and dreams
For he might jump on you!

Clouding of Consciousness

A neural mist descends
A heavy weight on mind
A plague of obstacles progress
Inhibiting in kind

A nebula that masks all thoughts
Miasmic effluent
That overwhelms and suffocates
Without release; relent

A haze within the brain
A vapored smog depress
To kidnap and take hostage life
Clouding of consciousness

This blog is dedicated to raising awareness of www.stars.org.uk who diligently support all those suffering from conditions that result in unexplained blackout.  The clouding of consciousness (also known as brain fog) is a nasty symptom of many of these conditions.  To find out more please contact Stars who can help ensure that anyone presenting with unexplained loss of consciousness receives the correct diagnosis, the appropriate treatment, informed support and sign posting to the appropriate medical professional.
