Painting – Stars of Spring by L Diane Johnson

birds sing before dawn
like musical orchestra
they brighten the day

peepers are small frogs
peepers emit mating call
melody of night

fragrance of flowers
air of spring brings health and life
rain comes on the wind


hello there spring
first flowers are peeking out
goodbye cold winter
two Marias in spring
Mother Nature at her best

nice to have colours
yellow, green, purple and red
instead of just white
enough snow for us all
anticipate what’s coming

The Troublesome Princess


Drop in here if you want some Morii
Meet the troublesome princess
With tussled ribbon she’ll sing a song
That perforate your eardrums such fuss

Her florid and terrifying prose
Will keep us up until dawn
She’ll sing a song with tussled ribbon
Prepare for solstice, well now begone!

Wine and poinsettia on the table
She likes to drink prosecco
With tussled ribbon she’ll sing a song
Her black bird by her side foreshadow*

It is the season to be merry


It is the season to be merry
And to share some of our goody
Let’s think of the poor and the homeless
And in our own ways, show our kindness
We could bake, make or cook something sweet and tasty

Christmas cocktails, mulled wine or punch
With family or loved ones for lunch
Visiting a lonely neighbour
Treating children for chips and burger
Ringing our mother and sending her flower bunch

Spreading love and happiness
Makes us happy that’s a bonus
Celebrate the birth of our Lord
Making music in our keyboard
It’s the time to be courageous and boisterous

Tale Weaver #149 – 7th December – Grandparents


My grandfather
He was always reading
He died of Parkinson’s disease
Tall, dark and handsome, with pipe on his mouth
He called Nanay “dear” till the end
We still remember him
Had lots of books
Mum’s Dad

Deaf as a post
Short, flat nose, wavy hair
Died of a broken heart
When my grandfather passed away
They had many children, with my Mum, too
Had a shop in front of the house
A good business woman
Creative cook
Mum’s Mum*

Face Cheerful Laugh Woman Joy Mood Confetti Fun

What brings joy?
Him Indoors and son
My mother
My siblings
Our love, our health, our career
That we’re still here

Our garden
Flowers, trees and pets
Air we breathe
Sun and moon
Challenges we take with love
Experience we share

Tale Weaver – 26/10/17 – Making Sense of Nonsense – cloppsright


When the cloppsright is right
Nothing in the world
Will make it right and bright
As we twirled and swirled

Nothing in the world
Will make us dream of home
In our sleep we curled
And in that place we roam

Will make it right and bright
Cloppsright is the best
As I wait for my knight
When he’s done his quest

As we twirled and swirled
Under the bright moonlight
Living in dream-world
And everything’s alright*
