Happy New Year!

And that is enough of that!

It is almost the end of another year. What did it bring me? There are myriad words to describe this year, here are but a few:

Happiness, sadness, joy, changes, unsettlement, frustration, elation, disappointment, delight, depression, friendship, love, education, hope, and like almost everyone, some financial worries. But, as Granny Weatherwax always says, I ain’tnt dead!

And for 2009? Who knows what the future holds, I shall just have to wait and see…..

Happy New Year to you all, I wish you a year of joy, happiness, and love.

Neglected

I have neglected this side of my blog for a while. Sometimes, things happen
that leave you feeling unsettled, and I have had to concentrate a little on
my websites. There is only so much time in a day!

But, I will be back, with poetry, pointless thoughts and other rubbish, my
mind is not able to be quiet for long 🙂

Happy Christmas everyone, have a fun time wherever you are!

Round & Round……

Round and round the London Underground
Interrupted by the braking screeching sounds
Round and round the circle line

The London underground
With its stops is an elongated list
Drunks battle in tunnels with open fists
Hidden somewhere is a network of CCTV Cameras
Recording your every move from afar
Watch out for the pick-pockets, I insist
They swindle even the most experienced tourist

Inside the trains, shine disoriented faces
Bodies usually squeezed into tight spaces
‘Please stand clear of the door’
It is an advice not yet a law

Stations by station, trains pass by
Stuck in a tunnel, let out a sigh
Train timetables from my perception
Is regularity, and a common deception

Round and round the London Underground
Interrupted by the braking screeching sounds
Round and round the circle line

Bored, read the metro
It is free, when displayed on show
For those who know
Where to go
Plan your alternative routes
Prepare for train strikes and disputes
Check out the cancellation signs
May your journey be divine!

Mind the Gap!!!

One and One

The sky isn’t always blue
The sun doesn’t always shine
It’s alright to fall apart sometimes,
I am not always you
And you are not always mine
It’s alright to fall apart sometimes

After all is said and done
One and one still is one
When we cry, when we laugh
I am half, you are half

The heart isn’t always true
And I am not always fine
We all have an angry heart sometimes

After all is said and done
One and one still is one
When we cry, when we laugh
I am half, you are half

Look how far we have come
One and one still is

One moon (one moon)
One star (one star)
I love the one we are
One thread (one thread)
One line (one line)
Let’s stand still in time

One moon (one moon)
One star (one star)
I love the one we are
One thread (one thread)
One line (one line)
That runs through our lives

After all is said and done
One and one still is one
When we cry, when we laugh
I am half, you are half

Look how far we have come
One and one still is one
