The power of magic

As we grow
We learn about life
The ups and downs
The happiness and strife

The laws we have
Govern our thought
Their physical nature
Is what we’re taught

We learn
The ephemeral truth
Of human existence
And to deduce

But laws develop
By being disproved
So remove the blinkers
And be confused

The light of imagination
Will lead the way
The power of magic
Does have a say


Two tits in the garden

My garden
At this time of year
Is empty
And lacking cheer

I hoped
That birds would feed
Using the feeders
Filled with seed

I waited
But no bird did show
I sighed
And was about to go

Then to my surprise
My heart did gladden
Two tits
In the garden

Patterns in the dust

Through the mists of time
Through the realms of dreams
Nothing is
As it seems

What we believe
What we know
Is all we have
As we grow

The life we have
Just or not
Is not our choosing
It’s what we’ve got

An unknown future
An uncertain past
That’s what we have
Until our last

Did we live
Or were we just
At the end of time
Patterns in the dust

The beauty of the world

The beauty of the world
Is yours to behold
So enjoy it now
And never grow old

The light on a flower
Gentle and loving
Nurtures its life
With colour blushing

The creatures that hide
In the deep blue sea
Incredible life
A wonder so see

Amongst the stars
In that heavenly place
Live planets
Of an infinite space

Open your heart
And you will see
Where you are
Is the place to be

Man Kind

From every corner
Gathering in a pub
To share their thoughts
And also some grub

Stories of life
Past and present
The good with the bad
And the not so pleasant

Each one an island
With customs and borders
Where trade is free
Between the orders

Talking with pride
Of life and home
Or times in the cave
Where they’re alone

Some with cash
Boast of the deals
For a portable cave
That runs on wheels

They inform one another
About their lives
How to fix things
And manage their wives

When the pints are drunk
And all has been said
It’s time to go
Off home to bed
