I like a variety,

Of textures and flavours,

A myriad of colour,

A mixture of behaviours,

I love to hear of different cultures,

Hear other people’s view,

Make a magical memory,

Experience something new,

I like to listen to music,

Imagine the notes being chased,

Melody, requiem, rhapsody!

I have quite eclectic taste,

I like to be a little different,

Eat soup with a knife,

How I adore a ‘mixed bag’,

This buffet we call ‘life’.

Deciduous (Or ‘Falling Leaves)

I watch the wind-blown leaves,

In a flurry of colourful play,

Thinking the scattered lavings,

Seem in a hurry as they sway.


Dust and debris settle,

In a destined pattern on the path,

I think not of home and hearth,

For I like this weather, laugh,


At raindrops as they plink and plonk,

Against the glass, a smear, a stain,

Of Autumn mulch from yester-year,

Sod-soaked memory lane.



Baldypoems: An Update


Greetings to all!  I hope this finds everyone in good health and high spirits, I have missed you all (yes, even you) and look forward to participating in the wordpress community again soon.  My computer and internet issues are, at present, still plaguing me, I am snatching a rare moment when the lights on the computer are staying on and the internet appears to be in a good mood.  My beautiful wife is in the process of dealing with the internet provider (threats of violence delivered via big, wet fish etc) and I am hoping to replace this dinosaur of a computer in the near future.  Untill such time, I am sorry to say that posting and reading your blogs will be very limited but I WILL be back at some point and will hopefully have news of other projects when I return to full blogging capacity.

I wish everyone every success with their writing and sincerely hope to hear from you soon.  Very best wishes from Baldy.


Now, lets see if I can post a few poems before the computer enters another bloody ice-age…  Keep smiling and keep writing.  🙂
