Right about now
in music classrooms in high schools up and down the land
four piece bands are being formed and
fret boards are taking a hammering
in ordered formation
fill empty spaces on the musical page
forming a foundation to create something magical
Rythum and Blues follow guitar
in concert halls up and down the land
following the familiar formation
followed by the star playing the guitar strings
This ain’t no restaurant “French toast”
it’s made over burning logs
in the country air
Foundation for the morning
Set against a glorious sunrise
and cups of camp tea
Thick crusty bread
absorbed in a lake of
Bacon awaits its partner
as it cooks away
in its fat
Poor Man’s omelette ?
after a night on the hills
it’s the food of kings.
Knives and forks ?
or eaten as a sandwich
only quandry – sauce Red or Brown ?

So, what makes me Happy ?

Sat around the sculpted edge
Petite feathered friends, preen
And pamper, dipping into and
Rolling about, in the clear blue water
Ripples create shapes as
Out and in they hop about,
Water splashing about on the

Poem borrowed from my page at Allpoetry.com
A tale a bit crafty, a bit religious, but all by me
Artwork created at Craft Sessions at Brain & Spinal Injury Charity in Salford.
As the Sun comes up,
its light shines through
the panels of coloured glass
angling the now coloured light
painting a picture,
of scenes on a floor
And as the sun shines,
through that brightly coloured window
reds cast with yellows
and greens cast with blues
as molten lead holds on tightly,
keeping the picture alive

Today i’ve had my hands in the soapsuds helping out at BASICs Cafe, Food for thought.
I’ve also been assisting in helping to run a poetry workshop in the conservatory.
we discussed what makes a poem and the different kinds of poem you could write
covering everything from Rhymes to Acrostics, Haikus to San-sans
hanging off the arms of the tree
a sign of things to come
pink and white blooms send a message
to all who walk around it
cheering as the children play
the apples 🍎 are coming on their way!
