DAILY POEM "THE GREATEST GAME ON EARTH"



The stage is set
the crowd roar loud
the boys come out ready
loud and proud.

The atmosphere electric
singing in harmony
its the greatest show on Earth
a place to be.

Two teams poised
for the ultimate fight
hoping to be stars
getting it right.

Supporters screaming
in perfect voice
go on boys
you have a choice.

The match goes on
ninety minutes of cheer
goals are scored
were's the beer?

The fans are happy
another win gained
voices broken
nerves strained.

Next weeks match
will be a winner
hopes are high
blood is thinner.

The heroes leave the pitch
with fans in tow
sons and fathers
salute and go.

I was asked by a friend on twitter to write a poem about a football match, soccer is you live in the USA lol, there is nothing more exciting than watching your team play, the atmosphere is electric, and if they win, all the better...

DAILY POEM "IS IT ANY WONDER"?















Is it any wonder?
that skies all turn to Gray
when pollution is growing
each new day!

Is it any wonder?
that some Countries are at war
with half the World fighting
and who knows what for.

Is it any wonder
children die of  neglect
every second of the day
so we should reflect.

Is it any wonder?
some humans cannot be free
when they take another life
and are too blind to see.

Is it any wonder?
cancer has no cure
when disease after disease
opens a new door.

Is it any wonder?
man hates fellow man
destruction inevitable
he does all he can.

Is it any wonder?
one can't see the light
when the tunnel is blocked off
no hope is in sight.

Is it any wonder
alcoholism is rife
man beating woman
husband beating wife.

Is it any wonder
happiness is rare
when there is too much sadness
and life isn't fair.



I suppose we can all relate to some or all of this, life throws many things at you, questions you toil to answer or sometimes you just want to forget..

DAILY POEM "I NEARLY LOST MY BEST FRIEND"


CARMEN


I nearly lost my best friend
my heart skipped a beat
looking frail and vulnerable
damaged by the heat.


Breathing was an issue
she couldn't manage it alone
her heart beating wildly
bloated and all blown.


The vet worked wonders
as she toiled for life
she needed to be calm
free from stress and strife.


The staff had worked tirelessly
to get her temperature down
I saw a marked improvement
as her small face wore a frown.


From the bottom of my heart
I thank the staff  who cared
if it wasn't for the attention
her illness would have flared.


I know vets are expensive
but money isn't everything
it's your best friend and companion
and all the love they bring.


My wee dog had a health issue, I had to rush her to the vets, within an hour or so she was back to normal, I have a lot to thank my vet for, I was devastated, even though the cost of veterinary treatment is expensive I would have paid more to have my wee one  better..

Have you had to get your pet treated?

DAILY POEM "HARMONY IN THIS WORLD"




What do you see in your daily life?
love,  hate, war
arguments ongoing, no sense at all
what are we fighting for?


Hoping a new day brings fresh promise
we all want to live and learn
we only get one crack at the whip
for goodness sake we yearn.


Say "hello" don't be shy
we are all the same
get your head up, enjoy the view
don't hang your head in shame.


Do someone a good turn
make their day
you will benefit
all the way.


When you feel irate
count to ten
hold your breath
think back when.


Peace was the norm
Brothers were united
when each day was magical
you felt excited.


We only have one World
so lets give it a bash
think before you speak
don't be rash.


Unanimous in wealth
its a time to cheer
when we live in harmony
not in fear.



Fed up of reading about disharmony in this World, every-time you pick up a newspaper or switch on the tv its all grim, Imagine if we all got along, what a great World this would be..



Do you yearn for Harmony?

DAILY POEM "IS THIS A MAN'S WORLD"?


He glances at the pile of washing
not sure what he should do
does he put his white shirt in
with a t shirt of dark blue?

Bedding, curtains, towels and clothes
all piled into the machine
 radio  playing in the background
pounding at its own steam.

switching on the washing machine
the other hand dusting the shelves
wow I didn't realize
I thought they cleaned themselves!

dishes packed on the counter
the sink has got a task
will he dawn his rubber gloves?
did you have to ask?

Time to go and make the bed
thinking its an easy chore
all you do is toss over the duvet
then its on the floor!

Time to put the kettle on
the sweat beats off his brow
running out of milk he sees
why not buy a cow!

The washing turns at a deadly pace
its a technological wizard
wait isn't that my boxer shorts?
flapping in the blizzard.

Time to get the vacuum out
designed to make life easy
but pushing this massive tube of plastic
makes your back feel queasy!

Doubled in a bout of pain
hobbling to the couch
housework isn't an easy task
in fact id say its OUCH!!!

Being single you have to do all the chores yourself, I know a lot of guys do their bit when it comes to helping their partner do the domestic chores but when your on your own you have to get on with it, by the time I have finished I am ready for the knackers yard lol, this is a piece of work probably harder than the full time job you do for a company lol.. its all in fun though hehe.

DAILY POEM "LIFE AS A HUMAN"



When life seems a dredge
and it stumbles on down
we wear a smile
or we sometimes frown.


People get broken hearts
it is life at it's best
tears flow endlessly
everything's a test.


The storms gather wildly
it enters our heart and soul
it knows how to grip us
and forget our true goal.


We need to let the past go
however hard it seems
torment must evade us
become history in our dreams.


I know the winds will settle
calm will enter your life
engulf you in its power
settle all your strife.


Around you is the love
you certainly deserve
your family are with you
your heart they will preserve.


Life's ups and downs happen daily, we just have to battle to keep sane..

DAILY POEM " THE SWEETEST OF DREAMS"


SWEET DREAMS
I dreamt I was a singer
on a lonely stage
not for any money
profit or wage.


The lights beamed down
covered from head to toe
no where to hide
ready to go.


When I opened my mouth
there was a sweet melody
words in harmony
timeless and free.


Breathing hard
the chorus in sync
each word clear
no time to think.


The end was amazing
the crowd clapped loud
my gut filled with butterflies
yes I was proud.


Going off stage
a heart filled with glee
my dream was astonishing
only I could see.


Wakened from slumber
still fresh in my mind
to recall this achievement
it was one of a kind!!


Sometimes we have nice dreams, dreams we want to hold on to, I must have dreamed this after watching the x- factor lol, a prog on tv, I imagined myself as a singer...

Do you have nice dreams?

DAILY POEM "THE SIGNS OF AUTUMN"


Chilly winds make it cool
leaves dropping from trees
flowers ending their cycle
no more honey bees.

Time to wrap up warm
the sun becoming low
time for nature to take a rest
no more time to grow.

Planted bulbs in the ground
to come up in winter time
its the Autumnal season
summers at its prime.

Rain becomes a feature
dark nights rear their head
summer tools put to bed
in the garden shed.

Fires will be ablaze
on these long Autumn days
the sun will dip lowly
no heat in its rays.

Soon it will be Winter
another year nearly at rest
cold mornings, chilly nights
so comes the ultimate test.


It seems Autumn is here already in the UK, the leaves are dropping off the trees at a great speed, rain is coming daily, and there is a chill in the air, Autumn is a colourful month but it soon makes you Realise, Winter is almost here.

Do you enjoy Autumn?

DAILY POEM "WALKING DOWN LONELY AVENUE"


PICTURE COURTESY OF GOOGLE


Walking down lonely avenue
I was sure I saw your face
millions of people walked it
every creed and race.


A dark lonely street
nothing exciting there
just the feeling of solitude
never a hope or prayer.


Experience was rife
experts walked the route
some came back happy
bearing plentiful fruit.


Others were ashen
saddened with no hope
fearing the worst of the trip
knowing they cannot cope.


But at the end of the barren tour
light would shine on a few
making the trip bountiful
reunited ,showing true!


Never give up on finding the one
negativity will not help you out
being positive ,loving life
will help your cause throughout.


Every one at some point in their lives have walked down "lonely avenue" a dark street with no hope for some, but sometimes at the end of the walk there is some light and it can make you  feel good, so never give up.

Have you been down lonely avenue before?
