A Squirrels Dream 

A squirrels dream in autumn fall

is a rich colourful forage.

Acorns, nuts collecting them all,

a squirrels dream in autumn fall.

Fine combing the leaves, he mauls

foliole of red and orange.

A squirrels dream in autumn fall

is a rich colourful forage.

Tangled In The Pumpkin Patch 

Wishes are waved. Spiralling

through the air, alighting they

take root. The mystical seeds

are sown. Spellbound to the earth.


Enchanted the dust shimmers.

Aspirations start sprouting,

flowering and flourishing

in orange evolution.


The sorcery is fruitful

abundant with glowing charm.

Ripening a hearts desire,

metamorphosing its hope.


With magical resplendence

longed for dreams are harvested.

The carriage of their essence still

tangled in the pumpkin patch.

Snowflake Whispers

Winter ever glowing

in darkness, shimmers with

delightful radiance.

Luminous and white


the glacial diamonds

shine. Illuminated

their translucent beauty’s

a curiosity


of nature. Enlightened

the snow auroras are

captive and magical.

Incandescent auras


of the Arctic night light

shine on snowflake whispers.

Their celestial glaze

of wonder pirouettes.

A Time For Change 

When you love somebody dearly

but the relationship’s estranged,

and you feel taken for granted

maybe it is time for a change.


Alter your own expectations

and take people for who they are.

You know nobody is perfect

and perhaps your opinion’s marred


by idealist perceptions

of what your connection should be.

it could be your own attitude

that’s causing all the misery.


Even true love wanes with pressure,

give your heart time to beat alone

Leave your trusted soul air to breathe

because a person’s never owned.

We Should Be Thankful

We should be thankful for 

the people that used us,

and the narcissists who

have hurt and abused us.


We should give praise to

the traumas that were ailed,

it taught us to be brave

when our hearts were frail.


Yes we should feel happy

looking back on dark days

as they’ve made us stronger

forever and always


appreciate life let

negativity go

because that is the way

your happiness will grow.
