A Happy You!

by Tanya

It’s time I went to school..
It’s time I went to high school..
It’s time I did my masters..
It’s time I moved on to jobbing..

When did I live?
When did I enjoy my early life?
Was I just planning to enjoy till this time?
Had I been just working for a better life?

A Bed-ly Thought

by Tanya

The air is calm,
As I can’t feel it on my palm..
The lights are dim,
So, I start to hymn..

I close my eyes-
My wings of butterflies,
A sheet covers me,
So I rest my knee..

Unclogging The Mind

by Tanya

There was this time
When I sat
Clogged with the thoughts
Of little things
That I did mind

That restless night
That uneasy mind
Took a toll
Over a lot
Of my precious time

Fridays

by Jem Croucher

are of a week my favourite day
As they often happen after
four days of toil and fray

Like A Sunflower

Like a sunflower in a sunny field,
she would smile at everyone,

as if every face she met was her sun.

But I’m not that disconcerted

Happy

by Jem Croucher

IMGP8033

Happy‘s so much better
than being glum I always find
Encouraging contentment
and a constant peace of mind
It’s so much easier to smile
and be jolly all the time
As a frown takes lots of effort
as it does to always whine

A new home

by Jem Croucher

27 November

His family had lived
in the same place for years
Safe from harm’s way
with no worries or fears
Foraging for food
in the gardens around
Then up to the homestead
up high above ground

A brightening

by Jem Croucher

28.12.11 (2)

Caught a movement in the undergrowth
Looked down at my feet
Saw a little face down there
Looking up, quite sweet
It was a friendly squirrel
Foraging for some food
I smiled and thought that seeing this
Was really rather good

Sunshine

by Jem Croucher

IMGP6308

As if from hibernation
I have woken with the sun
It lifts me from a slumber
When the winter months are done
It bathes me in its brightness
Cleans all those blues away
And perks me up for summer
Yellow filling every day

Happy thoughts

by Jem Croucher

DSCN9170

Another journey, ears are cold
Morning’s here (or so I’m told)
Five forty-five, a half light’s here
Find the time, get back in gear

Another train, a few more miles
Put on brave face, greet it with smiles
Find some words, write them down
as on I go to London town

Catching Happy

by Jem Croucher

10356750_10153233586344199_8969638600289078428_n

The effort of wearing a frown, I am told
Is harder than wearing a smile
And what a change one can bring to the world all at once
With a happy face once in a while

But they have the power to heal

Will you ever say those words to me now?
Will you ever tell me your secret?
I’m trying to figure out how.

How Smart Are We

by graypoet

questions of life

Thinking of the questions we daily face
I find that my mind often starts to race
What do I know compared to others around
Are my thoughts clear, are they sound.
