Oasis

Oasis

On the whole, it’s a little piece of heaven

as you settle back on the plumped cushions

sat on the flower – surrounded garden bench

it’s just the right place to enjoy a

summers afternoon – with a cool glass of lemonade

A colourful place

Imaginary

The seeds of creativity

come from a blank page

ideas held in seed form

spread and grow in the mind

a pencil, sandwich and cream soda

the architects tools

as rainbows cast across lemonade seas

marshmallow clouds and fudge trees

provide perfect plates

for a teddy bears picnic

Unmellow

Hardly the mellowest flower in the garden

your bright colour screams for attention –

a central figure among the reds and the blues

look at me! you cry as people picnic on the green grassy lawn.

surrounded by you and your siblings

they agree as they feast on their banana sandwiches

and drink their old fashioned lemonade

you certainly brighten up the day.

Feast

Feast

Take a crisp blue sky
and a gentle breeze
and add a little heat
Sand or Sea is optional
but a mat or blanket – essential

Sandwiches – Tomato or Cucumber
(or if you prefer) Ham or Beef
prepare a little salad
to serve on the plate beneath

Lemonades a nice drink you might want to take
or maybe a smoothie or ice-cream milkshake
The Grown-ups take coffee – or water for tea
in a well lined thermos – away from the bees

For afters – some fruit or perhaps a pie
Chocolate’s a favourite – I don’t want to lie!
but a nice way to finish this picnic – a dream
is a small bowl of strawberries – topped off with ice cream.

Another trip to Neverland…

With me visiting hospital recently this poem brought back some memories!

I hit the pillow,
drift off to sleep
and then out of the window,
with bears do I leap.

Onto a ship on its way to the clouds
shiny and bright with its crew that are proud.
Off to a place, hidden behind stars
Sunnier than the Moon, Venus and Mars

And passing by Orion, he gives us a wave,
as he tells animals in th’sky to behave.
and we drift away to our place of reach
our dream location – a lovely beach

Honeycomb sands and lemonade seas,
lime drop palms and friendlier bees.
A place where its sunny, and never too hot
a place for a teddy bears picnic spot

Lemonade

Written for National Poetry Month – A Tale of Lemons and Lemonade

 

If life gives you lemons
make lemonade,

Yellow like sunshine
sharp but – somehow sweet

An acid taste
brought down by sugar

A tale of life embodied
in a single fruit

Grown in a sun drenched orchard
on trees with waxy leaves

You started green – but soon grew
as you lost your pigment blue

and squashed in a press
you gave up your juice
and entering fizz
let your flavours loose

each drop enough

to quench the driest of thirsts

 

Sign of summer – embodied
in every colourful sun drenched bubble
