A reminder that reality has to be worked with.

Thoughtful Thursday

Try a little thoughtfulness

But I Smile Anyway...

Please think about those around you, seriously, not all of us wear our hearts on our sleeves….

You never know what your neighbour might be experiencing, or going through…

Their actions, that might annoy you, could be a defence mechanism, to cover something they are going through…

Be thoughtful, this, and every day…

Have a wonderful Thursday Peeps!

I want to get naked,

Dive into the water,

Dive down beyond belief.

I’ll swim to the moon

And if Luna will forgive me

We’ll get drunk on red wine

As we sing along to the tunes

In a little bar called Tranquillity.

But, if she won’t have me

I’ll swim on alone

On down to the depths

Where monsters lurk waiting

Amongst the fossils and the poets.

Swimming by treasure and holy relics

Along the sunken byways, now silent,

Where once Atlantis’s children

Laughed and played.

Perhaps I won’t find Atlantis

And Luna won’t forgive me

But it doesn’t really matter

For I’m not looking for treasure

I’m not searching for pearls

For riches corrupt, bangles just corrode.

For as long as there’s the ocean,

Water flowing over my skin,

I’ll just dive down forever.

Forever down, beyond belief.

Early Morning Rise

We all have days that start like this, but as long as you end up with the attitude embodied by the final stanza – well you are going to be OK…

I stir

Still waking

I get up and shuffle around

Like an old car, I need to

Warm up

or else

I’ll stall


Peak out

Old windows

Get a taste for the day

Make a plan, what to do

Sipping coffee

And reading

Morning news


Finally alert

Cobwebs cleared

And ready to start the day

All this world is a stage

And I

Have plans

To shine

Lost and Found

I was lost

Until you found me.

Picked me up,

Dusted me down,

Gave me a reason

Turned my life around

And it only happened

Because I stopped

And listened to myself.

Marching in step

I’m so alone

Nobody understands

What it is I’m going through.

How can they possibly


When everybody out there

Is as screwed up as me.

You are trading off past glories

Off of something you no longer are.

You pretend that you are still it,

When the reality is you struggle just to be.

And about you your acolytes are slowly dying,

Acid fried brains, car crashed embarrassment.

Everyone is watching you

Primetime superstar extinction event,

Behind your back everybody is laughing,

Whispering, make way for the toppled king.

I don’t know.

Where to start,

I need


To think it


I need

A little space

To get my head


It’s not you

My darling,




Don’t put your life on hold


I need

A precious moment,

A little time

To myself.
