Little Fella

Little Fella

This little fella,
Landed on me,
Made me happy,
For me to see,
Reminded me,
Of nature’s love,
Even if,
It’s just a bug.
***
This little fella,
Sat in my hand,
Made me think,
About the land,
Showed me life,
In the city,
With his seven,
Spotted coat.
***
This little fella,
As returned home,
To live among,
The under growth,
To feast upon,
The aphid armies,
And another,
Person happy.

What I Would Give


You could recite python,
Without missing a beat,
Make me smile,
From cheek to cheek,
Put me in stitches,
For over a week,
And say you love me,
As big as the street,
Now what I would give,
To hear goodnight one last time.

You could make eggs,
With a runny yoke,
Find the right time,
To tell the perfect joke,
Tried to fix things,
Or just give them a poke,
And say I love you,
As big as you know,
Now what I would give,
To say goodnight one last time.

Love In 2017


The world has changed,
I’m engaged to be wed,
Fifty Years ago,
This would have made me,
Worse than dead,
Even twenty years ago,
I wouldn’t get wed,
Now I can love,
Have kids and get wed.

They Will Not Win


We stand together,
Stand as one,
We stand against them,
They have not won,
We will stand strong,
And show them all,
They won’t win,
No not at all.

Radio Silence


Apologies for the radio silence,
The wavelengths have been dead,
But all shall become clear,
In the very end.
Poems have been written,
Yet to be shared,
This is because they are submitted,
To competitions around the world.
When the submissions are done,
If I have not won,
They will be posted here,
For all to read.

Thank you for your continued support.

Hope


Hope,
Is not just a useless word,
It has endless meaning,
Freedom,
Is not an actless sentiment,
It keeps us breathing.
***
We all live in hope,
To live in freedom,
When freedom is taken for granted,
Hope is ignored,
And one by one,
People become,
Mindless hordes,
Living for tomorrow,
Saving for today,
Having nothing to their name.
***
Hope
Is not just a useless word,
It gives the world meaning,
Love,
Is a binding force,
That keeps hearts beating.
***
We all live in hope,
To find true love,
Which shows our blindness,
Love not just your partner,
With true love,
Love your neighbour,
Your father,
Your fellow humans,
With the same love,
And the world will be,
As it should.
