Sailing to windward

Grave Stock Market Tip

Need and greed don't often rhyme
but when they do, buy quicklime.

Life is...................

Life is
but a tear-drop
clinging briefly
to a smile.

Reality of dreams

With courage and tenacity
Some dreams become reality.
Whilst others, I find,
need another’s mind.

Pink confused a white rose red

Pink confused a red rose white
Dipping sun sets day to night.
Guileless dawn joins light with dark;
Hateless, awe-filled, works of art.
Nature paints each their skin;
Not a choice, nought to win.
No thorn pricked, no blood bled,
pink infused a white rose red.

We the shy children

We are shy children
Why wish us ill then
When we sing our songs for pleasure?

We are God’s children
Who pays the bill then
while we play amongst the heather?

Will He explain then
What it is that we should treasure?

If it’s not love then,
Or heav’n above, when
we receive the farewell sermon,
will we remain then
singing and playing
amongst the decaying heather?

Demurely held by iron cuffs
and vivid coral bars,
our heroine waits in vain
to once again track stars

Morays peer, then slide away
and tiny fans withdraw
protecting Neptune's solitude
our rude descents ignore
