Beautiful moon

Why would you watch me?

I know you better than most

Although everyone gazes at you

I will not be thrown.

We have had many a moment

Just you and I

Your beauty overwealms me

Brings tears to my eyes.

You can be blinding

As you light the path ahead

There is nowhere else to be

Nowhere else instead.

As the stars vie for your attention

Flashing bright and true

You stare right through them

As constantly you do.

Will you love me forever?

If I never look away?

Tell me you’ll never leave me

And you’ll always stay.

If I could change the colour of the sky

If I could change the colour of the sky

What would I wish it to be

I don’t wish for blue anymore

It just doesn’t appeal to me

How bout yellow, I like it so

So bright and cheerful to see

Like a flower so sweet to smell

That’s the colour for me

The peace of the park

.

Oh I love the peace when we come to the park

I can hear the birds sing and lark

Watching the joggers as they pass on by

Reflecting on life, not asking why

I love the sun as it warms me up

Not too hot, its just enough

As I watch the water rippling in the sun

Kids feeding ducks, having fun

I stop to breathe and forget it all

Before I leave heaven and I fall

fantasy · Life

Dare me

.

Dare me

Go on do your worst

Punish me with your words

Quench my every thirst

Tell me what you want

Intricated thoughts

Twisted nothingness

A daredevil to be bought

If I expire doing what I love

Dying happy all above

Whisked in emotion

Whirpooled away

Stunned in shock

Scare THAT away

You will never win

I refuse to be beat

Stubborn as hell

Unsurmountable feat

So come on bring it on

Make me suffer pure

If you think you’ve got it

Make me your…..whore

Life · Success

The egoistic man

There was a poor old man

A poor old man was he

He used to pray to his god

Selfish as can be

.

Why do you not help me out

Help me to be rich

Please give me lots of wealth

Don’t treat me like a bitch

.

A holy man took pity on him

Wanting to give him a break

So he too prayed for him

Hoping it wasn’t a mistake

.

God appeared before him

Is this a joke my son

This man thinks only of him

What will he become

.

The Holy man insisted again

And God agreed to help

To help the selfish man

I will offer him wealth

.

The poor man was off one day

On his way to pray

Every day he walked the same

He never changed his way

.

So God prepared some gems

Priceless incredible gleam

He put them on the poor man’s path

They only had to be seen

.

I know, I’ll close my eyes today

The man said to himself

He walked across the gems

Without realising their wealth

.

What are these things under my feet

As he kicked them out the way

That stupid silly selfish man

Would live to regret that day

.

Spring haikus

Look at that sunrise
Warming beauty, rays of gold
Allume this grey day

The little boy gave
His hand, whistling while crossing
The road with her

The odeur of them
Seeping through to our nostrils
Flowers blooming spring

family · Life · Rhyming poetry to change your day

Wake up sleepy head

.

Almost the weekend

So true so true

One more day of work

What will I do

.

Mode zombie today

Not slept enough

Got to drive to work

Feeling so rough

.

Can I go back to bed

Under the covers so warm

No you lazy git

Oh my heart is torn

.

Let me sleep

Just a minute or two

I promise I’ll move

What am I to do

.

Drag yourself downstairs

Make a cup of tea

Enjoy its warmth

See, isn’t that glee

.

Now begone you hermit

Move your bloody ass

What did you think

This poem was gonna be class

.

Today let’s have a blast

.

I like them moments of silence

Just being alone

Hearing just the clock ticking

In the comfort of my home

.

The fridge whirring

Nothing else

It’s a funny thing

Being by one’s self

.

It’s lonely

Exhilarating too

Daydreaming about the world

What we are about to do

.

No television

No radio

That would spoil it

Not the way to go

.

Just…. Peace

Tranquille as can be

In my little bubble

Free like a tree

.

What will happen

On this day so new

I am so excited

Opposite of feeling blue

.

Just….. Thinking

Reflecting on the past

I am sure today

I’m gonna have a blast

.

Today let’s have a blast

Life

A nice cuppa

.

Oh i fancy a cuppa

A nice cuppa tea

I need it to wake up

For me to be me

Dont take sugar no more

Sweet enough me

Mm a nice hot cup

To start the day really

Lounge back in the sofa

Knees up to my chest

Cup to my lips

You know the rest ๐Ÿ˜‹
