Day 30: Forbidden

giphy

Dope is forbidden I conform
Mellisonant swan song is not
Not ambiguous, banned in all form
In a laconic way, he plots

With macho posturing as key
With adjuration he bethought
Electrics with a spare key
In a laconic way, he plots

Wears his costume at a canter
To be a rebel that is what
The boundary that is so blur
In a laconic way, he plots*

Day 29: Breathtaking

A mist in the sky and I sigh
A breath taking sight so far
A walk by the shore I can’t deny

Mimic of the chime like a spy
Golden pebble by the sandbar
A mist in the sky and I sigh

To feel limber, stretching to try
Swaying of the pine leaves that’s afar
A walk by the shore I can’t deny

The wonderful kiss by my guy
Worldly wisdom signals the savoir
A mist in the sky and I sigh

Seeing the Taj Mahal I cry
Eiffel Tower and the Grand Bazaar
A walk by the shore I can’t deny

The Zugspitze, wish I could fly
Experience to share for my memoir
A mist in the sky and I sigh
A walk by the shore I can’t deny*

Day 28 – Belonging

Him Indoors and the son and me
Plus beautiful K make us glee
I belong to my family
We laugh, cry, we argue and love shopping spree

My mother still rocks at eighty
Love all my siblings that’s the key
With partners and children for sure
We’re meeting in the Philippines for Mum’s party

Friends and relatives I belong
When together we are strong
We are there for one another
We have fun with our singsong hopefully lifelong*

The scent of a flower

yellow1

gorgeous sunflowers
as I cycle through the fields
shine bright like the sun

spring

apple blossoms in full bloom
on such a beautiful day

winter birds depart
swallows and house martins sing
birdsongs in the air

ornamental cherries in bloom
blossoms create magic sight

carpets of blue bells
found in woodlands at their peak
pretty wild flowers

daffodils are popping out
cheerful bulbs burst into life

so called “mad March hare”
these shy creatures can be seen
boxing in the fields

all the signs of spring are here
rejoice and let’s welcome it

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

IMG_20171013_092107

sweet memories
like it happened yesterday
scents of petals

Tic toc tic toc my mind keeps moving
What will I wear? What do we cook?
Grammar or conversation? Does he love me?

Round and round, this way, that way
Sometimes peaceful, sometimes chaotic
Tic toc tic toc my mind keeps moving

How’s my Mum? The son? Ring them!
She said something hurtful, ignore that?
What will I wear? What do we cook?

What’s the plan? Where do we go?
Yes or no? Choices, decisions, ideas
Grammar or conversation? Does he love me?*
