08 Hospital - Hospitality
I visited Hospital for a check up on an orthopaedic operation I had a few years ago. This acrostic shows my observations.
H opelessness people straring so blankly
O rthopaedic - brittle bones - broken bones
S miling nurses giving reassurance
P atients - patience - porters - posteriors
In patients - out patients - impatience
T rollies with bodies - scalpels and tea
A nxious wait - X-ray and full body scan
L ets go before they amputate everything!

SUMMER Loving is special and al fresco
USUALLY the sun is shining and it's warm
MYSELF I love the sun it relaxes everyone
MOST people I know are more loving in the sun
EVERYBODY greets you with a smile and a hug
REMEMBER always to be huggy in the Summer!
LOVING is all about being nice and kind
OPEN to people - receptive to their smiles
VERY few people can resist nice smile
I ALWAYS try to smile even if I'm sad inside
NOBODY loves or hugs a miserable person!
GO ON be happy smile & hug ~ SUMMER LOVING!

1127 Cyber Love
Once I perfection in a lover found
twas long ago and far away from here,
her perfect love abolished grief and fear
with her my life was built on solid ground.
I loved her more than any maid around
and when she left I shed a bitter tear,
so I have searched for someone far and near
to put me back on track and safe and sound.
Why seek ye for her in the Market Place?
where fairest blooms are very hard to find.
Log in all your desires in Cyber Space
the perfect lady that you have in mind!
I logged in my desires my love to trace
when you replied - my cloud was silver lined!
Sense Of Spring
Spring is the loveliest season of them all,
A source of life and love and gentle things,
Reward for winter's frost and icy pall.
A time when fledglings spread their tiny wings.
Spring is the gentlest season of them all,
When lambs their frail appendages must try,
The sheep stay close, concerned lest they should fall,
And gently nuzzle them to help them try.
Spring is the brightest season of them all,
Spring flowers yellow, mauve and red and blue,
And grasses growing silky, slender, tall;
And trees whose leaves are green of every hue.
Spring is the shortest season of them all,
Dissolving into summer's eager call.
Awesomeness of Autumn
Sweet Autumn heralds summer season's past,
She can't conceal the changing of her leaves
Autumnal days will hasten winter's blast
Her sunny days will ripen harvet sheaves.
Artistic Autumn paints a myriad hues,
Red, orange, yellow, pink and brown and green
She - from her pallette - has the chance to choose
Collages that no artist ever dreamed.
Majestic Autimn heralds winter's charm,
Leaves fall, trees' silhouttes revealed
Wood piles replenished in the rustic farm
Exotic fungi in the woods concealed.
Is Autumn still - best season of the year?
YES, Autumn well deserves the bonfires' cheer!

1024 Christmas Visitor
Shaped Poems are popular in the UK an often at Christmas we write conical ones to resemble Christmas Trees. PH won't allow me to centre so you will have to turn your screen through 180 degrees - anticlockwise - to get the effect! ENJOY.
Down our chimney
Fortunately fire was out
Gosh - Was it Father Christmas?
I can't recollect - however possibly was
Him or Her - Mother Christmas? Who else?
In days of equal opportunities - Nothing is Sacred
Mother Christmas well well well - perhaps I
Should remain awake - to welcome her
She might need some assistance
With the sleigh and reindeer?

The Scent of Bluebells brush the soul
And melt your tears away,
A gentle breeze through leafy trees
Gives purpose to your day.

Confirms that Spring is here,
A carpet of the purest blue
To fill our lives with cheer.
