Bluetits, Sparrows, Robin, Wren,

When will you be in my garden again?

Coal Tit, Blackbird, Song Thrush too,

I always love to feed and see you ,

 At this cold damp time of year,

I love to see you show no fear,

The Hawks are about, I see you spy,

and then you hide and do not fly,

The seed on the ground, the peanuts too, 

all eaten by the lot of you,

Lots of money pays for the food, that I place each day for you,

I love to see you everyday, it makes my day so true,

The acrobatic tits, of every kind, Blue, Coal and long tailed too,

The blackcap is the latest one to join in the feeding queue,

The squirrel tries to join the game,

to steal your nuts that is his aim,

but now a feeder for him is bought,

and his own monkey nuts he does sort ,

So feed the birds, and all wildlife,

each and everyday, for then they will always come

and really make your day .

My rather surreal poem insired by my brother

Take a large biscuit

Place it on your sofa

Gaze at it lovingly when you are alone

Try to be positive And do the washing up

Then dream happily of the railway transport system

Don;t really know why this peom happend but I hope people will like it

Life is like a river

From it’s source down to the sea

We’re on  a trip  together

What will our fortune be?

At birth we are a bubbling spring 

So fresh and pure and new 

Protected by our caring banks

Our worries they are few

But as our happy carefree stream

Glides on throughout the  years 

It’s joyous bubbly life flow

Is swollen by our tears.

We start to slow as we grow old

And sluggishly we flow

We want to stop,to rest a while 

But onwards we must go

At last we reach the endless sea

And surrender to it’s swell

We’re lulled to sleep within it’s wave

And then ?We have no way to tell.

Way beyond the fringes

Of place and time

I seek a memory

That once was mine

Like a sprite it hides

In hidden sight

My fingertips touch

My senses ignite

Hidden in muddle

And shame and haze

I accept the truth

With minimal grace

My friend poorly and irritable
yet still my friend not expendable
I come with big warm smiles
that cross many oceanic miles
who needs my cuddle or two?
So, we can stick like glue
have no fear my friend
our friendship has no end

I've noticed when doing the weekly shop,

that food is shrinking, and quite a lot.

The price stays the same, it's in my notebook,

next time you visit, YOU take a look.

Biscuits that I'm sure contained 12 now have 10 ,

how did this happen, and when?

I thought about cakes and how you now are MADE to eat two,

and cereal packets, they're MUCH smaller, SOMEONE should sue.

Ready meals serve 2, that's a laugh!,

it serves ONLY ME, now that it's shrunk by half.

I go up to the manager to complain.

"My dear! I'm sorry,  but ...I find that all obese people say exactly the same".

Awaken from your slumber
with the whispering of spring
the world is quietly dawning
Spent has the winters sting

There's a regal excitement
the air so pure and bright
snowdrops are stirring
attracted by the light

Dawning of the sunrise crisp early morning dew unfolding of the hedgerow and life begins renew

its the season of rebirth celebrate each new day
rejoice the transformation spring is on its way.
