Eye Line Smile
It doesn’t take much to lift a heart
Or cause our head to swoon.
Just loving words or chaste kiss,
Can lift us round the moon.
Whether eyes are dark or light
They can twinkle and bewitch,
Causing a thrill right through you
As if someone clicked a switch.
Seeing can makes hearts flutter
With pulses racing with a touch.
There is no magic spell for this,
Just that we love so much.
Contented sighs descend on us
Like some heaven-sent cascade.
And nothing will keep us apart,
Even rivers, hill or barricade.
Any plain face can cause sunrise
When it breaks into a smile,
And when that beam is loving
Joy will fast flow like the Nile.
Whether eyes are dark or light
They can twinkle and bewitch,
And if they sparkle just for you
Your whole life will enrich.
For in a world that’s tough at times
Where you strive hard for reward,
Being drawn to loving eyes
May bring ecstatic life accord.
Nice romance there then, and as I mentioned them and promised last blog or so, here is a Ted & Beth poem now they are on the “Gig Tours” with me again, and more requested, here is a lead poem from their own new book..
Ted and Beth’s Book
Ted and Beth feel they’re now in heaven
And are giving their dad a loving look.
Because he’s giving them a fantastic gift,
Publishing their own personal book.
For while they already have a fan club
And their very own Facebook page too,
Now getting a whole book about them
Has made all their dreams come true.
For everybody seems to love them
And hear about their adventures bold,
Including having their poems read out
On the radio, and in newspapers told.
And so we are clearly seeing now
The popularity of this mischievous pair,
Whose antics include flooding a bath
Hiding slippers, and making people stare,
In disbelief at their outrageous fun,
That whilst naughty is never very bad.
Because they have learnt to enjoy life,
And to laugh and not be too sad.
Thus Ted and Beth warmly welcome you
Into the wacky world of teddy bear glee,
To share some bizarre ideas and deeds
Written by their human dad, who is me.
That poem is in The Bears new book which is doing quite well and for “kids” of all ages and a “must” at just £6.99.
I should mention in all this “Fabulous Flowing” that I am backed by the excellent James Harvey now both my website Guru and Publisher who can help you too, so is on “soulsong.co.uk” and well worth a try! That should get me a discount for my Book TWELVE that I’m working on, nod, nod, wink, wink, and NOT in any Dirty B way for pumpkins or plums either.
Another poem that for no specific reason I don’t promote much, WELL I do have over 500 poems I have written now, comes now and maybe a little bit me?
I Am Spartacus
Yes I am Spartacus I cried out
Like in the film of the same name,
About Spartacus who led a slave revolt
The Roman empire struggled to tame.
But after defeating by superior numbers
The Romans wanted the man behind it all,
So threatened to torture all who’d revolted
Until Spartacus and slaves stood up to call,
That they were all the notorious leader
So desperately sought by the empire elite,
Who were petrified others would now rise up
Against a hated regime they wanted to defeat.
Thus now that bold and famous shout
Owning up to being the man that meant,
So much as a brave and resisting hero
Is today a statement of determined intent.
For by shouting his name out proudly
It showed a courageous and a fighting side,
So I respect and salute the likes of him
And also tried to show an honest pride,
In everything that I have said and done
When battling along my paths in life.
And not flinching from any twisted truth
Of false words cutting like a knife.
Because I still believe in myself and manage
To hold my conscience and integrity true,
In the face of some cruel envy and lies
Slanderously said about some things I do.
For there is always someone struggling
With their jealousy and a bitterness,
So they can never be at a hearts rest
While you succeed and they’re a mess.
So I will gladly shout out I am Spartacus
And own up to who I am and stand for,
Though others may not sit well with this
But as an honest man I can do no more.
MMMmmmm from my Book 8, and like the following Book 9, probably gives out more of me and all I was dealing with at a quite personally sad and difficult time, but lol HEY I am still standing and smiling.
*Twins favourite fruit is said to be pears.
*I saw a chameleon yesterday so I guess not a very good one?
*I read recently that frogs wear open toed shoes
*A chicken crossed the playground to get to the other slide
Another poem and from my fourth book.
Alone in the Mirror
I am alone in the mirror
With this face I’ve come to know,
That’s been staring back at me
From so many years ago.
But that face has changed now
Though the expression is the same,
For it has seen much of life
And situations you can’t tame.
This face has looked on loss
So tragic it creased with pain,
While trying hard to smile out
As inside the heart was slain.
Inner traumas rocked the soul
Which nearly split the seam.
Causing untold agony but,
Outside the face would beam.
So laughter which we cherish
Has cracked the outer look,
Though these smiles fed lines
Can belie the times it shook,
With mirth, and sometimes grief
As it was worn across the years,
That eroded pristine youth
With many of life’s fears.
So that cruel mirror on my wall
Reflects the good and bad,
Showing with lines and wrinkles
All the years of life I’ve had.
But I’m not ashamed of this
Please don’t be taken in.
For though sometimes I force it,
Years drop off when I grin.
More flowing activities for me include a stall and collection for Help for Heroes at Langney Shopping centre Tesco, thanks manager Seb, this Friday 2nd September from 9 am, a stall at Hailsham Festival book fair this coming Saturday, an article in Eastbourne Herald “possibly” September 9th, new gig venues coming up in a busy looking (flowing?) next couple of months and to top it all my old recently caught up with, school friend Donbo D bought ALL of my eleven books in one go, CHEERS man, that ensured over £30 in one swift go to Help for Heroes. Phew it’s all enough to make me go dizzy, but perhaps I have a head start, but I luuuuuuuuuuuuuurrvve it all!
Ted & Beth (and animal friends) are all very excited about the gigs and events they are going to, but still remember to say HELLO to you as do “I” with usual BIG thanks, so after a busy spell and News Blog where I am sure I have forgotten something, it is nearly time to close but with seemingly regular now romance poem for all you lovers, birds (as in doves) sweethearts, sugar plums, apricots, pears (pairs) etc comes =
You spoke to me out of the blue
And I didn’t know who you were,
But like Pitney’s “24 hours from Tulsa”
Such happenings can occur.
For I had felt an instant shudder
That I couldn’t quite control,
Also a strange realisation
You had touched my very soul.
We did the awkward introductions
That two strangers muddle through,
After your identity mistake
That I was someone else you knew.
So I tried to cover your blushes
And embarrassment so clear,
Though again I felt compelled
By the need to hold you near.
Thus we both stood quite flustered
By clearly felt sensations,
Running through the two of us
Defying all explanations,
As to what had just happened
In an amazing heartbeat,
When people blend together
And their very souls now meet.
Now you look at me and say my name
And I go shaky at the knees,
But when I felt your touch
I thought my blood would freeze.
So now we need to decipher
Just what we can understand
About this, and further actions,
As we walk off, hand in hand.
So, thanks again as The Journey Continues FLOWINGLY
Love, light and Smiles,
