Purple Flame


There is a background hum
A bubble of chitter-chatter
Babbling voices
Merry souls
Filling the breach
Between nothing and something
Dispelling boredom’s diversion
At the cognitive junction of distraction
Though as focus forges ahead
Deaf to all that goes before
And blind to all that is nearby
Concentration in its purest form
Neither sees nor hears
Nor senses past the tunnel ahead

An Easter Message Just For You

What rubble is in your life?
What rocks get in the way
What boulders needs a-shifting
Not just this Easter Day
But daily on your journey
The journey we call life
Where maybe stones have cast their lot
To cause hassle and strife

Yet know there is salvation
For each and everyone
Where hope and light shine brightly
When all is said and done
For in yourself a quiet small voice
Lies deep within your heart
Like compass that is yours alone
That’s been there from the start

A compass that will navigate
A pathway sure and strong
Away from judgements others make
Ignoring wagging tongues
Set on a course of freedom
Autonomous and true
That plots your path as you would have
And does what you will do

And with your moral compass
Be enlightened and be sure
To move those rocks that stand to block
Determined evermore
To soar your own potential
To sit in harmony
Living the life you’re meant to live
Empowered eternally

The Recipe For Achievement

With a dash of stickability
A pinch of true resolve
And dose of determination
A mind set will evolve
To grow the muscle daily
That perseveres and beats
Those things that test and challenge us
That seem the biggest feat

So mix them all together
Add a drop of hell-bent might
Stir in a spoon of ‘not give up’
Until the end’s in sight
So that despite the toughest ride
The work be worthwhile
Cos no-one promised easy
In life’s mix to cross the miles

Then bake it in the oven
At a heat that just seems best
Enough to cook and bake the beast
Yet not too much to test
It’s own endurance limits
For sometimes more is less
In getting equilibrium
To win without the stress!

And finally when done spot on
Remove and see just what
Has been effected; followed through
And know that with a lot
Of focussed dedication
This is what you have done
Be proud of your accomplishment
For you’ve achieved and won!

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!

Give Your Children Just Enough

Give your children just enough
To go and make some good
But not enough that then they fail
Nor see the tree or wood
Give them a start and help them to
Appreciate this Earth
To own their own pathways ahead
Not just by right of birth

And let them harness steadfastness
Inspired to do much more
To take the little that they have
And rise on footholds sure
With knowledge that they can succeed
Be who they want to be
And open up the way ahead;
Take opportunity

To know that by their own attempts
Their focus and their might
They’ll take the little that you give
And with hard work in sight
They’ll master their autonomy
Be true to who they are
And journey whilst holding on fast
So that they will go far
