A Red Rose

I am a red rose

About to bloom

I have the power

To dispel gloom

Walk into a garden

Come up to my nook

And take the trouble

To cast me a look

Some pleasurable moments

I can then guarantee

Life as such

Has no warranty…


Special Days


Blue Sky

Fluffy clouds

Fresh leaves

Strong trunks

A visual

So lovely

Made me

Look up

And smile

And imagine

Idle afternoons


Just staring

Dozing dreaming

Reading thinking

Bird watching

Insect observing

Animal interacting

Special days…


Watch Your Relationships

Watch your relationships.

What is it one can reconcile?

Differing opinions

Varying personalities

Contrasting behaviour


One cannot reconcile

Differing principles

Varying values

Contrasting character

Watch your relationships

Decide where you want to be.

More important,

Decide where you don’t want to be!

Airing Grapes



Here are some grapes

I put out to air

The urge to eat ’em

Is hard to bear

Don’t they resemble

Molecular structures,

Strewn about like this

In tight clusters?

Filled with goodness

And fresh and luscious

Fruits are food

Magical and precious!



Look who’s trying to get in at my window!


An imaginary silent conversation between me and this persistent visitor into my room:

Who are you?

A pigeon. A bold one. With a personality.

What are you doing?

Just looking in and around.

Why are you here often?

I am just fascinated by this room.

What are you doing, strutting about?

Oh, exploring and stuff.

Aren’t you scared of me being here?

No, I don’t mind you – you seem harmless.

Ah well, so long. Be safe!




A Flower Smiles

A flower smiles

In a little garden

And beams on the world

It has no cordon

Its bright colours

Capture attention

Bees and people

Flock to it in unison

The flower has beauty

Fresh and simple

Enough to give

Food and joy, ample!
