Days of Sadness

Grave

When Sandy died
I felt so down,
my soul had been ripped
from out of my body.

Why did she die
doctors say she collapsed,
her body burned out
we would never talk again.

Clothes in her wardrobe
clothes in her cabinet,
hair brush and perfume
all neatly lined up.

I get up each day
waiting for life’s end,
knowing she is waiting
to be together, once again.

Cathedral Memories

2496

I walked the path
other’s trod before me,
crossing the threshold
into peace and tranquility.

2570a

Daylight broke through
stained glass windows,
depicting historical images
the life of this building.

St.Mary the Virgin Church - Rye - Sussex

Monuments and tablets
adorn these walls,
those to be remembered
not forgotten by time.

Heartfelt Feelings

Memories - Vidan Art Beland

Warmth and emptiness
spread through her body,
as her fingers and toes
filled with numbness and feelings.

She felt as though
she would break apart,
into millions of pieces
and disappear into oblivion.

As his soft blue eyes
gazed into her green eyes,
she knew at that instance
he could read her mind.

One’s Life

1186

The bleating sound
echoes across the room,
the alarm clock tells me
it is time to rise.

I grope for the light
switch it on, and fall from my bed
put feet onto cold floor
stumble across to bathroom.

A quick wash and shave
cold water flows from tap,
a quick gaze at clock
thirty minutes, to catch bus.

Enter kitchen, for my cereals
mug of tea, hat and coat on,
out through the door
catching bus at end of road.

Through the works gate
with minutes to spare,
all this to earn my keep
and pay my bills.

All Seasons

Reflections by Liek

Late snowfall had melted
bleating new born lambs faded,
spring was on its way
village gardens come to life.

Bluebells sapphired the woodlands
buttercups gilded the meadows,
daffodils gave way to pansies
blazing baskets all in bloom.

As summer burst forth
blue skies and white clouds,
blue lakes and white swans
feeding crumbs, to hungry swans.

Butterflies exploding from hedgerows
dragon flies glinted in the sun,
insects skate upon the surface
of the village pond.

Soft breezes, rustling wind
summertime moving with the breeze,
leaves turning golden brown
autumn is a coming.

Storms battled with the sun
rainbows across the shoreline,
as autumn moves in
with a chill in the wind.

Leaves fall from the trees
plants shedding their leaves,
temperatures plummet
as winter moves in…

Cold Winds of Nature

1170

A cold easterly wind
blew along the coastline,
as a cruel wind lashed
against the shoreline.

Jagged breaths of cold air
pounded away, at her lungs,
as the cold winter’s air
burned her skin raw.

She pulled up her collar
hiding her face, in her coat
hoping to ward off cold winds
and the nail biting; cold effect.

A New Day

Day's End by Edlittle

The dawning of a new day
as daylight flickers on the wall,
eyes closed in deep sleep
as you murmur in your sleep.

The birds chirping outside
telling you its time to rise,
as the sun bursts forth
the room filled with light.

In the faithful flow of light
a feeling, a presence exists,
I sense you at my side
once and always.

Scotland’s Independence

William Wallace

William Wallace

William Wallace is born
Edward; England’s new King
each would become bitter enemies,
in Wallace’s bid for freedom.

William Wallace, martyr and patriot
sacrificed his life for Scotland,
his bid for Scotland’s freedom
being the catalyst; for war.
