The secret garden under my bed

I never knew they could grow there

Such beautiful colours

A garden of flowers

Growing underneath my bed

Red roses with such fragrance

Mesmerising me with its blood red

As I breathe in all its odour

Such a powerful drug

Sending me to euphoria

Its softness cushioning my nose

And I am lost inside

The petals engulf me

Surrounding my body

I give myself

To the garden

Happily

Loving them behind the door

You can only truly be at peace

When you stop searching for

What already exists at home

Loving them behind the door

This new year

This new year we celebrate with cheer

Muffled by masks when drinking our beers

I wish you good health and hope you stay safe

We must have hope and a little faith

First impressions

Why when I cry does it never end

As I look at our first selfie

It has been merely days

But my chest tightens so much

When you touch my face

Just a moments embrace

Could satisfy me for an eternity

If we could stay forever

In each others arms

Why do you have to leave

Just an hour is too long

Like a needing puppy

I can only hope to cling on

I have only your scarf

With your sweet scent

To remind me of our precious time

Until the next time

I can breathe your air

My tears I cry for you

My proof of a joyful longing

To hold you once more

And this time

To not let go

love · New work

Will I send the letter?

My words on paper, my heart my soul

I give you my heart, torn out whole

Every word written, with all my love

Each one spaced even, just enough

The care I take, to present fine art

Hoping it’s enough, to win your heart

If I had the courage to send this letter

Fear of rejection, gets the better

Will I dare to send it? your surprise

Read my wishes, only for your eyes

1. Rhyming poetry to change your day · Life

Positive thinking

Are you feeling down, world against you?

Pickled in turmoil in boggy stew

Life throws us curved balls, cogs in wheels

Hide if you will or dare to dig in your heels

What doesn’t kill you can only make you stronger

Use your mind, be creative, think a little bit longer

I may not be the best, you may be better than me

Hey hum, that’s life, you’re free to be free

Stuck in your job, no way to get out

Yes you can, they can do without

I am just a human in this immense universe

If you don’t fulfil your potential it’s even worse

You are great, you can lead

Others will listen and take heed

Change the world in a day may not be possible

But with positive thinking you are free and able
