God made me to his design
In order that I could spread my wings and fly, bringing the change of peace and beauty to a restless world .
The wind was howling as she ran through the field screaming his name. But he never looked,he kept on walking away.
She woke with tears in her eyes. She knew then that he had lost his life on the bloody battlefield.
The telegram would arrive soon and it would all be over.
Their future lost ,fighting for a better future for others
We watch as Rock 512 is lowered into the clouds
Its lowering sends the clouds swirling and causes sparks to fly from the stars
Its a successful launch,but somehow this one makes me feel sad
I feel as if a part of me has left on the island
I suppose it is because I was the lead person on the island nurturing
I've long to leave on one of the islands but only the young are allowed to go
It will be a while before we hear from them as to where they have settled
I watch with sadness as the island becomes a green dot in the distance
I turn away with a sigh
I don't suppose I'll live long enough to see another launch as it takes many years to nurture an island for launching
I wish ...
3 Lost and heartbroken
0 I don't want a birthday this year without you
3 I want you
9 Be here with me holding me in your arms
5 No cake,presents cards,candles
8 Will ease the heartache of being without you
My head is joined to my body
But my thoughts run free
I write down my thoughts for Lettrs
And they are shared by you and me
We may be a long-distance apart
But a WiFi signal joins us
Like a long flickering tail
A blue light signals a message
Like a neon sign in the dark
My pen pal has made a comment
And also shared their thoughts
Words whizzing far around the world
From laptop ,tablet and phone
Words and letters join us
Allowing our imaginations to roam
The people are lost and blind
They no longer see the beauty in things
Evil has taken hold in the hearts
Place your trust in me
Stand firm in my love for you
Wear this blindfold and look not into the light
All around you there will be howling winds
Destruction and fallen people
Stand solid as a rock
Until the cleansing is complete
We will move forward into a new life
Love,trust and compassion will be our corner stones
There's this boy at school I really like
I think he's rather sweet
I wrote him a Valentines letter
But I didn't want him to think I was being fresh
So I wrote it on my Mums typewriter
I even typed his address
I singed it with a loving kiss
I didn't sign my name
I hope he's a kind of sensible guy
And realises it was me
Then the two of us can begin to write our own love story.
I wrote you a story on my typything
But it didn't turn out very sweet
I asked a unicorn to deliver it
But he couldn't find your street
He gave it to a giraffe he met along the way
But he couldn't get it in your letterbox
Cos' his neck got in the way
He got in a bit of a dilemma
And he's sorry about the poop on your stoop💩💩
He hopes you won't be home soon as it will still smell very fresh
He says it's good for roses,so consider it a gift
It's a better one than my story
Cos' he said he read it and it wasn't very good
It's not your type of story cos you live in a posh neighbourhood
He told me he offered the story to a neighbour passing by
But she said she didn't want it as...
The green dog listened ears cocked high
To a bark that came from the mouth of a a fly
He followed a path that went to nowhere
Then couldn't remember how he got there
He turned around to make his way back
But ended up being tied in a sack
And carried away on a giants back
He called to the giant to listen to him
But the giant responded"My name is Tim"
He took the dog to a barbers shop
And told the barber to give the dogs hair a crop
The barber cut the dogs hair and gave him a perm
Much to the dogs disdain
He ran from the shop out into the rain
And the giant never saw him again
The dog wee'd up a tree
The tree dropped a branch on his head
"Pack that in ,you'll po...
As the bark becomes brittle and the green leaves curl and wither
The path becomes shorter
And the book of life briefer
Listen with your heart
And hear the breath of the breeze whispering words of love
To comfort you on your way
Don't look into my eyes
You won't like what you see
Don't look into my eyes
You won't like me
I've done things you can't imagine
And I enjoyed them too
Don't look into my eyes
And my evil won't taint you
If you don't love me now,please let me go
Please don't keep me here just to boost your ego
Let me live my life as it should be lived
Let me be stress free and think about me
I've spent too long catering to your whims
I've spent too long meeting your needs
I need to meet mine
If you don't love me now and I don't think you do
If you don't love me now ,please let me go.
He wandered the empty streets,calling out out for any survivors. But no answers were to be heard. He walked past a building that caught his eye. He walked in and blinked as his eyes adjusted to the dim light. He stood in a magnificent hallway adorned with carvings of angels.
He heard a click from his right side and turned to see a man holding a gun which shone a red beam on his chest. He quickly raised his hands and stammered " Please don't shoot,I'm unarmed and I mean no harm to anyone".
" Who are you and where have you come from? the man asked.
" My name is Doctor Victor Stamens, I was working in an airtight chamber at the hospital and when I came out there was no one around and...
When I was younger I thought working hard and earning a living was important, now I'm older and wiser I realise that love and good health are what's important.
It began as a tree,bark and green leaves
Growing by the path for many years
It ended as a book sat on a shelf
Its hard to decide which brings most pleasure
The tree in its natural form
Or the book read at leisure
I Listen to the wind rushing through the trees
Hear the leaves rustle in the breeze
It makes me give thanks for ebooks and Lettrs
For a paper saving environment has got to be better.
Yesterday is gone in time but not in my mind
I still hear the hurtful lies you said
Turn around my friend and look truth in the eye
Don't feel you cannot do it for I will be waiting for you
Do not go your own way, a way of believing lies is a lonely way
Let's walk the bumps in the path of life together because that's what friends do.
I hold out my hand to you
Close your eyes! I've a surprise for you. Walk with me her Mother said.
She took her daughter's hand and together they walked outside.
"What is it " the girl asked,"there's nothing here".
"Oh yes there is"replied her Mother.
" Open your eyes,open your heart and you will see the sunrise,the birds ,the flowers and trees and the road leading to somewhere ".
" Take that road and go out and live,you are spending too much time inside on technology,Facebook Instragram,Twitter,that's not life,switch it off and go outside and live".
"Whatever" the girl responded,shrugged her shoulders and went back inside.
Well,the Mother thought,as she bent to switch off the Internet connect, that was the e...
Poetry - Weather
Cold crispy cold
When the winter sun shines
Ice crunches in puddles
Snuggled up warm in coat scarf and gloves
Only a red nose showing
Mild Autumn days ,the sun losing its heat
Sunlight highlighting the gold and brown leaves
Leaf piles to kick through,treasures to be found
A shiny brown conker,a pine cone on the ground
Spring days ,a watery sun
For snowdrops and crocuses to lift their heads to
New life beginning, pushing through the ground
Winter is over,warmer days will abound
The hot summer sun blazing its heat
Making it unbearable,not a treat
Skin burning if you stay out too long
Sweat forming at the slightest exertion
I think you can tell which seasons and weather I l...
I remember gazing into the flames ,past my crimson tipped toes which were beginning to shed winters icy claws and draw in the warmth from the fire.
Thee firelight cast a warm glow around the room and the lamp lit the shade in the corner.
My sisters and I would gaze into the fire and see a world beyond out consciousness.
Castles on crags,a dragons head puffing smoke from its nostrils. An occasional flame flickering from the molten lava pit where the evil king lived. Sparks leaping into fireworks to entertain the fairies who lived in the castle on the crags.
The clock ticked its regular rhythm creating a peaceful relaxing air in which we would doze and dream.
"Get your fe...
You never did like to dance
You never took to the floor
But I was lucky
You never stopped me dancing
You clapped and called for more
You don't know what this means to me
To be given a new job
I feel like this is a new start in life
I can provide for my family
Thank you for choosing me
These are tears of happiness
Yes, I have shed tears of despair
But come 8 o clock Monday morning
When you open the office doors
I'll be there
His work never really interested him. So once again he found himself staring out of the window. It was at that moment he felt something he had never experienced before. He saw her,in her yellow dress. The wind played with her dress as she turned around and they locked eyes.
He had to go home ,she had to come with him,he had to paint her.
Why was he not doing the thing he loved most. He needed her to sit for him,he needed to capture the colours that radiated between then.
Art was his life,colours were his life and they had muted to grey.
He rose from his chair and rushed out to meet her.
" Hey,where are you going" his manager called
"To follow my hearts desire" he called back.
Please look a little deeper
There is no hidden meaning
It is my conscious choice
I am a respectable women
Who wears a niqab for my spiritual well being
It takes inner strength and fortitude
Moral boundaries between unrelated men and women are respected
I ensure my modesty
I am not wrapped and hidden
Please respect my choice
Don't let your misunderstanding cause any despair

Walk on the path of gladness
It is a good path to walk
Take the turning from sadness
Face raised to the sun
Walk on the path of gladness
Feel the wind and rain
Look at the blessings around you
Live in hope that such sadness
You will never have to feel again💞
His eyes were green and mesmerising
They flashed with a wild light
The predator was on the lookout
Dawn arrived after a cold foggy night
Chilled to the bone he rose from the park bench
Which had been his bed for the night
Cold ,tired and hungry
He set of for the town
Would today be a good day
Would someone see his need
Stand him for a coffee
Or see his need to feed
Would someone show him compassion
Help him on his way
Reach out and touch his lonely heart
Would it be today
Winter came faster than expected. She wasn't prepared.
She shivered uncontrollably as she walked past the houses with their lights shining brightly and smoke curling from the chimneypieces indicating a roaring fire inside.
She clutched the money in her pocket tightly,hoping upon hope it would be enough.
The bell above the door jangled as she entered and she felt the warmth sting her face.
The woman sitting at the counter stood to greet her,
" I'm so pleased to see you,come sit by the fire,you look frozen."
She helped her open her coat and cuddled the bundle wrapped inside.
" Hello little man ,come and get warm".
The baby smiled at her showing his one little tooth.
" I've saved so...
Oh what a brilliant challenge for me. All my life I have enjoyed playing games.
I have many childhood memories of playing games. We always had a new game for Christmas.
Every Sunday night was game night. We didn't have a television when I was growing up. The radio would be playing ...Sing something simple... and we would gather round the kitchen table and play Memory game,card games,board games and Beetle,a brilliant dice game.
My Grandparents taught us card games,Newmarket and Queenie and at every family occasion we would all play cards for pennies.
This continued when I had my own child and he loved to and still loves to play games.
He plays games with his children and I...
This year I want more positivity and less negativity
If I had to choose one word to focus on this year it would be hope
I want to stop doing crying and start doing smiling and keep doing smiling
My greatest worry or concern this year is coping with grief
This year I will embrace always look on the bright side as my Dad taught me.💞
