Echo

You echo still

Familiar and yet not

Expected and yet not

Not yet

Not yet familiar

Still unexpected

You, still and yet not

Love and War

So long apart forgotten the delight

The war of words has crumbled in my sheets

The running battle by a kiss was stilled

Exhausted head upon the breast that beats

His eyes they didn’t shine so bright before

But in my bed he lit the way back home

And in his tangle found myself released

His arms that feel as they’re mine to own

We lose an hour then an hour more

And in the loss of time we find a start

For he is on my bed and on my mind

My name I will tattoo upon his heart

The war is over let the love begin

I fought and lost and yet somehow I win

Life is Done

Make the change you want to see

Be the best that you can be

Live for now and worry less

Tidy up don’t leave a mess

Think of others you can aid

Make sure debts are fully paid

Study hard as through you go

Learning helps us all to grow

Smile more often have a laugh

Light some candles for your bath

Share with others frequently

Give your love to all you see

Count your blessings one by one

Then leave in peace when life is done

Pulse

Stop to feel a heartbeat
Everything is fine
Life is ticking over
In the hands of time
Moments lost in chaos
Wonderful release
After seek reflection
Time to make some peace
Life it should be balanced
Up and sometimes down
Swing or roundabout as
Merry we go round
Future's never certain
Yesterday is gone
Feel the rhythm pulsing
Moving you along

The Farm

And blowing in the wind is where the answer's meant to be
But I was blown to here and back by what you said to me
The wind of change was Mary Poppins landing in the street
So give the starving tuppence if you have enough to eat
The question is our future and it's dangling by a thread
But Damocles has gone and you're the thing I left unsaid
The double hedging bet was lost and all we have at stake
Are bleeding hearts the Queen of Tarts will liberally bake
How many roads I walked with you yet never at your side
The wolf who blew my mind but somehow left it all implied
I'm on the road to nowhere but the making sense has stopped
Cause Maggie's farm's reality when rabbit holes are dropped
Some people never see the ocean others wash ashore
Imagine all the people then consider them no more

Unkind Thought

Apology from me to Universe
For unkind thought perpetuates the hate
So I will place an idea into verse
About a different world we could create
I think that love should motivate the earth
And we must find a different way to be
If every human being knows their worth
We could then live with love and harmony
This love it would replenish mind and soul
And when it overflows there’s more to share
If happiness was everybody’s goal
Together we’d create a haven where
The gentlest revolution would bring peace
For unkind thought won’t make the fighting cease
