Meet the Captain


It is not very common,
To get to meet a captain,
One who rules,
And tames the waves,
From his spot,
Up high in the ship,
With a thousand people,
Below the spot that is his.
***
A suit well pressed,
A look to impress,
A smile to enlighten,
A voice to calm,
***
It is not often,
You meet a captain,
So take advantage,
And grab a snap,
From another’s vantage.

Jetset Getset


Jetset Getset,
Off we go,
flying high,
Up in the sky,
Above the clouds,
To escape crowds,
As we head,
Down to the Med.

A Poem For Nice


We live in a world,
Full of beauty and hope,
Full of love and light,
Where people know good and right.
***
But once in awhile,
There is evil and pain,
Last night was an example,
Why did it happen again.
***
Words feel hollow,
In such a sad time,
When the most I can say,
Is I pray in my spare time.
***
To all those affected,
My thoughts are with you,
And to all those who fell,
My prayers are yours too.
***
To the families changed,
I offer my heart,
Although I know,
That is not very much.
***
Let us join together,
And share the love of the world,
Make the world happy,
Don’t let the evil win.
***
Everyone around,
Please bow your head,
Pray to who you believe,
Pray for both living and dead.
***
All of us, let’s make a difference,
Share love not hate,
Song not anger,
Share light not dark.
***

In The Bleak Mid


In the bleak mid Scottish summer,
Cold winds made moan,
Squirrels continue to shiver,
Sheep fear being shorn;
Snow could fall at any time,
Snow cold snow,
Welcome to the cold Scottish summer,
Not so long ago.
