stars and moonxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Within the imagination of your mind
You could be a prince, queen or king
You could go anywhere in the world
In your mind you could do anything

You could sail the seven seas
Experience wind and storm
Feel the sun upon your back
Sailing from dusk until dawn

See the Seven Wonders of the World
The pyramids in all their wonder
All the artefacts that were stolen
Of thieves that did steal and plunder

Imagine you could fly  away
Way up high above the stars
The many wonders of the universe
The planets Jupiter and Mars

You could destroy war  and diseases
Prevent corruption and intimidation
Comfort the starving and the weak
Bring world peace to every nation

But alas it’s all in our imagination
I am afraid that’s where it will stay
We can only wish that our imagination
Will come to fruition one day
Malcolm G Bradshaw

The little things

It is the little things in life which make the difference
When we are greeted by someone with a friendly smile
Who genuinely enquired about our well-being
Or  help in climbing over a stile
    A  stile is not just some thing we see in the country
It is any of the problems we meet on life’s way
To know that we have friends who will help us
Is some thing that brings happiness every day
For there is a lot of truth in the old saying
That a friend in need is a friend indeed
Someone who is willing to help us
And who is not afraid to intercede
Not one who always wants to interfere
Or to tell us things that we already know
Who can recognise the help that we are needing
And who will stay when all the others go
Who will do or say some thing that is helpful
It might only be a gesture or a friendly smile
But it can soothe or strengthen us for life’s battle
And make every thing we do worthwhile
Ron Martin

At the sea side its that time of the year – your favourite poem

When I was down beside the sea
A wooden spade they gave to me
To dig the sandy shore.

My holes were empty like a cup.
In every hole the sea came up,
Till it could come no more.

by Robert Louis Stevenson
