Lift off then after Back in the Saddle, but a bit delayed as have had printer and laptop troubles for last couple of weeks, , not good for a busy and manic poet, and even now I’m trying to find my way round confusing, (for me) laptop screen and features settings.
However as this blog is a bit delayed, (Julian noticed so well done sir), I will crack on with a reduced Blog this time.
Steady, steady Laurie boy go carefully
And don’t let your controversy show,
But oh but why ever not I then debated,
As without that people won’t know,
Your views and opinions on our life
That maybe they’d not thought about,
So yeah I’ll lay it clearly on the line
Possibly ending a thinking drought.
Because some people do like to read
Or watch the more outspoken people,
As they like to have some cut and thrust
To lift them high as a church steeple.
For the world would seem quite dull
If nobody will dare to cause a fuss,
So that again totally suits me now
When I am often as subtle as a bus
So that is a good start and first part of poem in new book 12 which after technology delay should be happening soon with of course great help from my excellent Publisher, (and website Guru) James Harvey @soulsong.com, so fingers crossed.
I have my thoughts and beliefs
That are tied in with my views,
When I just stand around
And the passing world peruse,
With all its strange characters
Acting out on their stage
Of earth’s wonderful scenery
Like a continual turning page.
Some will show off for attention
Or personal reasons that they need,
For in their own mixed up head
It’s the only way to succeed.
But surely this will often have
Opposite responses that they intend.
So they’ll be dismissed as crazy
And daft actions must amend.
But mostly people are oblivious
To any watching eyes on them,
Despite the growing use of cameras
That can exonerate or condemn.
For we have got quite used to
The idea we are always seen,
In various activities of life
Either embarrassing or obscene.
Though of course I learnt my craft
In my long psychiatric career,
When placing myself in a corner
I observed those who came near.
So my everyday life now is similar
Or in some cases much the same,
For all passing people now
I consider are fair game.
Some have a crafty little scratch
When thinking they’re unobserved,
But others do some strange things
They really should have swerved.
But by far the most interesting
Are ordinary, everyday acts,
Smoking cigarettes, and eating
That are noted for poetic facts.
Arguing, shouting and strange dress
Much better when unintended.
Clothes ill fitting, with colour clashes
Never to be recommended.
So outlandish behaviour and language
That has no spoken English bearing,
Are often lost among the words
Mostly laced with swearing.
Now that is just some of my clues
But I’m not giving away too many,
As when considering strange acts
Most people deny having any.
Though I can certainly advise you,
Or perhaps just add to warn.
That you are part of this mad world
And have been, since being born.
Clues there from unbelievably my 2nd book published in October 2014, so lol quite well versed if you see what I mean.
I must quickly mention Rebecca & Michaela the brilliant food ladies from my “Boro Club” kitchen who often don’t even have time for a scratch, well if they need to of course?
I really hope you are enjoying reading this news blog I’m struggling with a bit, (techno wise, and YES with aa little Anglo Saxon language at tines) whether in your lounge, at work or even sitting in your car?
*Is an indecisive bee a maybe?
*I’ve just invented a new word. It’s plagiarism
*A nosey alligator in a singlet is an investigator
In came up, or Oooop in conversation the other day about accents, how they vary and you can easily pick them up, but lol in truth I have never lost mine despite my elocution lessons, lol not really, but hey I’m proud of my East End roots.
I will just say again with apologies that this will be a shortened Blog as is overdue, but will be usual next one and probably with some dates, plans and ideas for Book 12 promoting, but definetly no gimmicks, cons, name dropping or tricks, Mmmmm well maybe a couple or so Whoooooo knows?
O k so will soon close but not before thanking you all for continued support, compliments and encouragement, so as regular now a “romance” poem as Valentines Day is approaching, but WE don’t need any prompts to Luuuuuuuuuurrvve do we?
Trembling hands and pounding heart
And with every nerve end reeling,
Whenever I see or think of you
I get this strange uncertain feeling.
So drowning in your lovely eyes
Drunk and dizzy from your scent,
In a heartbeat I was taken
Not knowing what was meant,
By an apparition of such wonder
With gold clouds over you.
So I stood as before my queen
Unsure of what to say or do.
Blinking eyes and head spinning
I stood stunned beside your throne,
For I had heard of this feeling
But never thought I’d be alone.
So when my body had recovered
I thought that I should speak,
Though whatever I tried to say
Came out a senseless squeak.
Thus I had come to fully realise
All meaning of love’s dream,
For while I was still shaking
I felt rooted by your beam.
So just like a nervous child
Going first time into school,
I was stunned awaiting orders
You of course looked so cool.
Then with a nod I was called over
With every sinew screaming out,
That for me the war was over
And lost to you without a doubt!
So as The Journey Continues by LIFTING OFF,
Love, Light and Regards.
