Lunch time fix!

Shall we dilly and dally

Over calories and shakes,

Or are you more interested

In anything with chocolate flakes?

 

Is it indulgent or fast

Treat or the carrot and the stick

That makes your taste buds tingle

When you need that lunchtime fix?

We stand

We stand with Manchester, we stand with London,

We stand with every town, country and place,

Where killings are used to politically disgrace,

This is not religion, race nor creed,

But life-changing and ending events carried out

Turning evil plans into planting fear seeds.

Put down the weapons, put aside your hate,

We stand with every town, country and place,

Nobody enjoys seeing fear on a child’s face,

This is not politics, culture nor fate,

Creating a snow-balling of twisted hate,

Against us, your own, just one human race.

Be Qualm-ing a parent

via Daily Prompt: Qualm

I think those little pregnancy tests,

Should come with a guide of how to do the rest,

Not nappies, nor milk, or the right things to eat,

But the qualms that you’ll have to meet.

If you thought weaning brought about enough frets,

Consider for a moment the tooth fairy dreads,

When will she come, and does she have slaves,

Does she have a wand, and will my sister also get paid?

So you qualm through this one, creating a whole charade,

Glitter, letters, coins and answers all getting replayed.

To the time you panicked when your child said,

They would like six kids whilst going to bed,

Can’t sleep without those ten toys,

What will the neighbours think of this noise?

How to explain that hole that they’ve dug,

Everything is better with a calm down hug.

Do we have eggs like chickens waiting to crack?

Why have the kids not given me the sack?

Next their heads on the pillows do rest, 

House is silent, and toys no longer a mess.

The sun sets on yet another childhood day,

We survived it, at last, hooray!

Be qualm-ing a parent,

It wouldn’t be the same if we didn’t feel this way!

Fire for life

Let the fire for life burn bright,

Never stop appreciating life’s delights.

Show, not tell the children how to grow,

Keep searching for new things to know.

Let creativity take it’s own flight,

Be you, be individual, burn bright.

Goodbye April, hello May!

Goodbye April, my dear friend,

Indeed it was fun, and we should do this again.

From your season showers to streaming sunlight,

Easter eggs and new tax year delights.

Hello May, my new dear chum,

Help me to see kalon everywhere I see.

From nature to the beautifully weird,

May days to sunny days with birds taking flight.

Goodbye April, hello May,

Let me click and capture it all in a new way.

Do I grate on you?

Do I grate on you?

Get under your skin, but never quite let in.

Do you see me here?

Not just a shape, more than t&a to explore?

Could you hear me now?

Listen to those thoughts and  dreams,

Everything, just ain’t what it seems no more.

Do you want a yes girl,

A turn around and make you smile girl.

Wrapped in those botox coated dreams,

No, everything just ain’t what it seems,

no more.

Do I grate on you?

The way your parents do?

Did you read my CV, or just the label on my skirt seam.

Would you know what I’m worth?

Congratulate on our part in the universe?

No, everything just ain’t what it seems no more.

Do you want a yes girl,

A turn around and make you smile girl.

Wrapped in those botox coated dreams,

No, everything just ain’t what it seems,

no more.

Could this by our day?

Hear you say thank you for what we have made,

Our pretending is done,

No more fat and thin articles to run.

Stopping the degrading in it’s tracks,

Ruining everything trying to hold us back.

One mind, one body, one soul,

One heart, one world.

We will be anything, no categories to withhold,

I want to grate on the world, not be a ghost to pose.

Do you want a yes girl,

A turn around and make you smile girl.

Wrapped in those botox coated dreams,

No, everything just ain’t what it seems,

no more.

Flower thoughts

Flower thoughts

Thousands of petals, thousands of words,

Were they all seen, were they all heard?

Was a single one missed today or back then?

Are they priceless or regarded as nature’s gems?

Hundreds of flowers, hundreds of thoughts,

Were they all loved, were they all understood?

Was there one to change the current outlook?

Are they appreciated or simply overlooked?

Every one plant, every one sowed,

Will we look after, will we let them know?

Is this a chance to rewrite and photosynthesis?

Are they important, to you or to I?

Spring is upon us!

Spring is upon us,

Bright blue skies above,

Birds chirping the early morning chorus,

Flowers unfolding without a fuss.

Spring is upon us,

No grey clouds to dampen,

Stark sunlight streaming through the windows,

Flowers brighten, shaking off the winter dust.

A new chance

A new chance.

As the clock strikes midnight everyday,

The new day gets ready for the beautiful dawn,

A fresh chance for you and for me,

To make our mark, in our own unique ways.

Flowers delicately unfolding, blossoming in dew,

Birds delightfully singing their own tune.

Rays of beautiful sunlight bringing the world to life,

Grateful to be alive is the response to this cue.

24 hours reset on the old clock,

1440 minutes to carve a new journey,

Start it, complete it, or let it undo,

It’s up to us how to use those tick-tocks.

Will you take the new chance to  shake up this rock?

Mother’s day

 

Flowers, cards, balloons and bears,

The season’s here again,

That one day, an annual event,

Celebrating the trip down motherhood lane.

Let’s remember and thank,

Not just our status quo of motherhood,

But everyone, who helps to nurture the child.

The mothers, step moms who take on the role,

Foster mums who care as if their own.

Nans that help us to bake,

The surrogates that grew bumps of love,

Eggs donated to families now grown.

The women who were like mothers to us,

The confidant, the carer, the teacher and such.

Dads who play both mum and dad,

The strong, the quiet, the resilient care givers.

Let’s take a moment to think of those too,

Who once were a expecting, or have an angel taken too soon.

The women out there hoping that the next Mother’s day is theirs,

For the gift of holding a child they want to share.

To all of you, wherever you are,

There’s no one path to this role, nor no right one to take,

It doesn’t matter how you got it,

What your title is,

Thank you for nurturing, caring, and believing,

On this Mother’s day.
