Those Were The Days My Friend....

This weeks poem for  Carry On Tuesday - 124 - using the words "Those were the days my friend".


Up until dawn
danced the night away
not once
not twice
so often I lost count.
Laughing till our sides hurt.
Being loud.
Being us.
Partied 'till the dawn showed her colours,
never wanting it to end.
But it did.
Some things just can't go on forever
no matter how much we try.
But those were the days my friend
where awesome memories were made,
fun memories that make me tingle,
make me glow with a smile.
Yes those were the days my friend.
We were good together.

When I Look Into Your Eyes....

Today I put a poem on here for Carry on Tuesday. The prompt was "When I look into your eyes". This poem is for my daughter.

 When I look into your eyes,
I see strength.
Strength of character
so strong,
and it inspires me.
You inspire me.
Your eyes they spark,
and your eyes they glow.
Your eyes just dance with life.
And  I know your story,
and I know your past,
and I look into your eyes
and see strength.

COMING HOME - home is where the heart is

Below is a poem I have written this week for Carry On Tuesday.
This weeks prompt is "Home Is Where The Heart Is"


Coming home
driving in the drive
turn off the key
and sit
be still.

Home at last
too many hours
on the road
too much traffic
in that city
too many lights
way to bright.

Home is where it is quiet
Home is where it is dark
Home is where it is peaceful
and welcoming
and familiar.

Home is where the heart is.

Home is also where your heart is.

It's good to be home.

A Weekend Of Camping

Grevillia flower - this is a tiny litle vase I keep on my kitchen windowsill. This is a beautiful flower and lasts for ages when I pick it.

Just look at the colours in this. The red edges look like satin. I just never get sick of looking at this flower.

This little spray of flowers above my kitchen sink is from a shrub that is absolutely covered in these pretty little pink flowers. The red flower beside it is from a bromilliad. They have the most strange and exotic flowers.

Camping at Karie Creek, Qld over the past weekend. Sunset from our camp site.

Fishing as the sun goes down.

The mangroves along the shore. Enlarge this photo and take a look. The trees look like they are creeping ahead to the water.

Little sandy beach area directly in front of our camp site. More fishing.

Sunset again.

Beach at low tide.

Heading out on the boat for some fishing.

Mangroves along the river.

I so love this photo. It is my favorite.

And this.....
