The mirror past invisibility
To see what otherwise might not be seen
The way to the destination
To visit places otherwise out of reach
The connection through space
To meet those otherwise never to be met
The key to the past
The portal to the future
The acquisition of knowledge; of language
And the hand of communication
Edifying mankind by text

Devil Of Temptation

Oh devil of temptation
Cease now your wanton ways
Your niggling hand that tests my will
That bids me go astray

Be gone and do not lure me
The apple to entice
Don’t tantalise, seduce, nor pull
Nor coax with loaded dice

And flame that races through me
Be quenched; be snuffed and die
Let pleasure’s expectation cease
Temptation  now deny!

The Salesmen

Beware the window salesman
He’ll stand about and chat
And sell you frames, conservatories
And flaps just for your cat
He’ll even do you offers
On gutters; facias too
And heaven only knows his deals
On front doors – good as new!

For in all truth he’s just so like
The car salesman down the street
Who sells you a soft top with just
Two front and no back seats
Despite the fact you’re pregnant
With hordes of kids at home
For somehow he convinces you
You need some time alone!

You need some time! Well don’t you just!
But in reality
With baby number 5 soon due
Those days you cannot see
Yet still you drive away from there
In red Mercedes Benz
To house with new conservatory
Both salesmen now your friends!

Less Haste More Speed

Woke up really early
With busy on my mind
That feeling of great urgency
Activity to find

Jumped out from the duvet
And rushed into the day
Tripping in a hurry
With breakfast on the way

Dashed out of the front door
Grabbing keys and drink to go
In haste swishing so quickly
Doing nothing very slow

Tore right through the traffic
Jumped aboard the train
Hurtled down the subway
The day’s agenda on my brain

Got into the office
Slumped at the desk at last
To recall that it was a day off!
Should have taken things less fast!

The Poet

As you paint a picture
With the lens of your camera
In the aperture of a second
Capturing all there is to behold
To seal an image
That rests on the optical nerve
I too will paint a picture
With the lexicon of a vocabulary
In an opening of your mind
Seizing a moment in time
With imagery
To linger on the staves of your soul



He curls up there
In a bundle of adorable black fluff
Dreaming of what? We cannot know
Until suddenly! Without warning!
He pounces!
And toes become his prey!


What Is Love If

What is love if
It is not tolerant

What is love if
It does not release

What is love if
It does not accept
