MIDDAY POETRY – ‘On A Different Note’

On a paper note
Shining in the dark
He stumbled upon in the park

Cheering now with joy
Ideas fly through his head
Prawns and booze he will get

Festive season upon us
As holidays proceed
It’s time for a decent feed

Prawns from a fish shop
Barbeque that hits the spot
After few drinks lost the plot

Dancing bare and singing
Covered in the midday breeze
Under a canopy of mature trees

Sleepy head and tired looks
He lays down by the table
No longer conscious or able

Woken by a gagging smell
Not much that could be said
Sound that resonates his head

Prawns no longer recognized
His hair in unorderly fashion
Fire alarm for his burning passion

Beep Beep with compassion

MORNING POETRY – ‘Morning Musings’

Before the crack of dawn
Eyes of an old owl
Sitting at the keyboard
Tired to the soul

After a long pause
Inspired to pencil
Mind chatter on a high
Unable to lay still

Reflecting on new stories
Of people young and old
Relationships hot topic
Until they get cold

Search for a partner
For life or just the bed
It did my head in
With all that’s been said

As the time has gone
The feel of cool air
Drank all the coffee
The least I could care

Who could imagine
That life has such a twist
Born to be wild
Then married to the Christ

Time to wake up now
