Sweet Dreams

I close my eyes and go to sleep
Content or so it seems
Able to drift into a world
Of slumberific dreams
Where fairies dwell and good folk live
In perfect harmony
So odds with what this world gives out
Or is this only me
Who find the folk who bicker and
Who argue and who moan
A tiresome bunch with so much hate
Making all others groan?

And so on the train to sleep-so-tight
I yawn and shut my eyes
And leave this world to find a place
Where goodness never dies
Where people seem to get along
Where kindness is what’s found
Where truth and love and joy survive
And happiness abounds
So when the sun comes up again
Birds chorus with delight
I feel refreshed and feel renewed
From such a peaceful night

Potential

When the day recedes in a symphony of colour
Flaming the dusky sky
I sleep that night midst dreams on fire
As slumber passes by

Then I rise renewed to a sun kissed day
With hope priming my heart
Invigorated, alive, content
Ready to play my part

For like a stage that nature’s set
With all her glorious might
The synergy of heart and mind
Awakens true delight

And dreams aren’t lost in sleepy folds
Yet live and are set free
To bring the best out; realise
Potential within me!

Shadow Of The Night

A lone shadow dances in the light of the moon
Apparition of darkness sways forth and in tune
As a mask in the umbra in obscurity
Infiltrates deepest dreams and haunts you consciously
With suggestion of heinous intent and much more
On the minds of its victim who is rattled for sure

Yet when sun rises slowly and burns into day
The figure; illusion drifts out of the way
Concealed by the light of the morrow for now
Camouflaged for the present yet still there to devour
It’s prey; your worst nightmare; your fears and your frights
As the shadow returns to dance through every night

 

 

Spit, Grit And Duct Tape

Spit, grit and duct tape
The way things ought to be
Making the most of everything
All opportunity
To turn around and to make good
Recycle and restore
To put new life into the old
And openly explore
The endless possibilities
To use the gifts we’ve got
To make the most of what we have
And tie a little knot
Remembering that with hard work
A lot will be achieved
By focussing with purposed might
So go on! Just believe!
That you’ve already got the tools
You need! The kit for sure
To fix up, handle, manage and
Then open chosen doors!

I Dream Of A Lie In

I dream of a lie in
Time to remain as one with the duvet
Deaf to the alarm’s morning rants
And the cockerel’s early wake up call

I dream of a lie in
Missing the sun as she rises in the sky
To slumber; to sleep; to relax
Absorbed in a good book

I dream of a lie in
Imbued by the warmth of roasted coffee
Percolating tranquility
Where drapes remain drawn
And busyness is but an illusion

Yes I dream of a lie in
One day ….

That Mary Poppins Feeling

That Mary Poppins feeling
As west wind starts to blow
As time comes to pack bags again
Raise brolly and then go

For when all’s done and all is said
When every job’s been done
The call from chimney tops sing out
With elements of fun

And lure of pavement flagstones
Or ride on string of kite
Bids now the time to sail on clouds
Soar upwards to new heights
