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!

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

Thursday

Were it but a different day
A Monday full of hope with her new beginnings
Or Tuesday where inspiration has the edge
Even a Wednesday in the knowledge of week half done
Or a Friday proffering excited anticipation for the morrow
Were it but a Saturday; a day of action and adventure
Or resplendent Sunday relaxing in the balmy weekend throes
Were it yet any of this
But nay it is a Thursday
Neither here nor there but stuck somewhere in between

Nature and Her Child

Saunter down the highway
Hike over the Peaks
Walk here to there and back again
From Ashbourne up to Leek

Cross Dale and over moorland
Where’re the heart may lead
In sun, in rain, at night, at dawn
When dew forms into beads

To further mountain yonder
Or valley by a brook
That bubbles with vivacity
Whatever way you look

And wonder at the beauty
Of this our Earth so mild
Yet so tempestuous as well
Is Nature and her child
