Pier Walk

To walk along  the longest pier

In the world ! Wow one and half miles

Does give us sunny smiles!

Is so beautiful to do

And what a view!

If the water is still

The sun makes it glisten

And listen…

Sometimes it’s peaceful, silence

And then the seagulls

There they circle

Flying high or sitting on the bar!

There is nothing like it

To walk out on the water so far

Be upon the waves

Like Jesus walking on the water..

Have you thought of that?

The simili …

it’s true

Gives you stillness

The realness

Of our world, the earth, the sea

I’ve walked this pier since I was a child

Holding my fathers hand dear

Without a fear

And tasting the candy floss the icecream

The penny arcades, the aquarium… memories …

It’s now just like a dream…

Times travelled so far

And here we are

Now my guide dog Polly walks down with me

Cos you know, I can’t see…

My way so easily these days..

But hey!

The wonderful feeling

Of the water beneath my feet, not getting wet

Is to be held in awesome respect

For this great pier

Of the Victorian era

Will never give way

And I will always see the feeling

Of its awe so great

Perhaps taken for granted I feel

So perhaps you should steal

A moment to walk out there today

In the weather, come what may

And feel the presence of it

Be forever in the hearts of us who know it

It will be there … so walk out on the water with grace my dear friends …

Blooming Good

A lonely flower stood on the hill

No it had no host

And it was no daffodil
It stood up high
Looked at the sun
It’s blooming life
Had just begun
All the other flowers were fast asleep
Their little hearts
Yet to share and leap
Just buds not bloom
They too would shine but not so soon
Early was this little flower
Very meek but with power
It’s stem was strong
It’s petals firm
The world seemed crazy
It was a concern
But the flower held its head up high
And watched the mad world go by
Determined to catch the sun
And have some fun
With its beautiful grace
With a smile on its face
It held itself strong
And felt it did belong
Despite the adversity all around
It knew there was  love and happiness to be found …
From the ashes from whence it swelled
As each tear it quelled
Determined to feel the pace
And leave with no trace
The horridness of the past
So with  one fell blast
It’s bud became the most beautiful bloom
So very soon
A red red rose with petals like velvet fabric
Faced up to the sun with a certain magic
And graced this world
And a difference it made
Giving its peace and beauty amid the crazy parade
Of those wandering in thoughtless wonder
With no time to ponder
This rose with strength took on the world
No longer in a dark corner curled
With hard work and lots of toil
Uplifted from the fertile soil
And with its sunny disposition
Now was in a position
To change the bad thoughts with its positive air
Because it really did have a care
So shine up little rose
You came to early
And your life has been one big hurly burly
Good always rises from the evil
We know that for sure
As one closes there is another open door
Red red rose shine on bright
And take the day into night
And along the way
Good always wins over badness
Happiness will shine above those tears of sadness
Good always rises high
Jesus has shown us this by and by
His tortured body rose again
Amid the torture and the pain
His bullied body was deplete
But this world he again did meet
This is the symbol you must agree
That truth and honesty will always be
the master of our bodies and souls
And that justice is always our true goal

Blind Seasons

this poem is to do with the four seasons… and sight loss… may be boring …. but one mans boring is another’s reality and that is mine, with 10% optic nerve left in each eye 😡 have a lovely day everyone ….



What a thing the spring

The pretty daffodils … where?

If only for a few days and hours

The lovely smell …

That newness

The dew, the damp, cool rain…

To whirl and bring warmth again

I feel it not see it

It’s ok I love it

I know it’s Spring…


Now it’s summer

There’s a bummer!

It’s too hot is it not

No air conditioning here

Oh dear!

The warmth through my feet

Wearing sandals what a treat!

Walking in the sea

As the tide comes in

Now there a thing

I feel it not see it

It’s a ok I love it

I know it’s summer


So autumn

Here you are

The door is ajar

The leaves are rustling

Everyone is hustling!

Getting ready for Christmas!

No!  it’s too early

But the leaves are all twirly

Colourful aren’t they?

I feel it not see it

It’s a ok I love it

I know it’s Autumn


Winter oh burrrr it’s cold!

It’s grey out there

So I’m told…

It’s all festive with Christmas joy

I love that feeling … oh boy!

Snow crunch on ground

Ok it’s found

The white stuff under my toes

With cold it glows

I feel it not see it

It’s a ok I love it

I know it’s Winter


I can feel it, hear it, touch it, sense it… it’s here…it’s ok… isn’t it…  what’s that saying… you don’t need sight to have vision…

But Isn’t that a division .though .. between light and dark

What a lark!

I’m ok …




Globalization, me dear!

I think the time has come near

When we must hold dear

This much we must dare

And be bold and to share

Every creed colour religion and nation

Without any frustration

Good will and love

Does shines down from above

But our planet is heaving

And no one is leaving

There is no escape

We have made many a mistake

In our evolution

Without thought or solution

The planet needs saving

Whilst new iPhones we are craving

The water is rising

The sun hotly shining

As icebergs melt

Depleting ozone is felt

People rush round

Much importance is found

In activity trivial

Nonsensical ritual

Wars never ending

With no peace transcending

Nuclear war could transpire

That would destroy every desire

In one moment we’d be gone

There would be no song

So wouldn’t it be better for us

To not make so much fuss

And our differences put aside

So no one need hide

Globalisation must bring us together

Because none of us are really that clever

So do you have an idea

To work this all out me dear!
