Our Loyal Friend

Posted: December 26, 2013 in POETRY 2013 -

In memory of our best friend, Kerry the Cocker Spaniel who lost her life Christmas Day 2013. (Rest in peace friend)

Cocker Spaniel we’ll miss you,
And all the things you used to do.
You may be up in heaven above,
But you will always have our love.

You may be gone but not forgot,
To us and everyone you meant a lot.
We will have our memories of you,
You’re in our hearts no matter what we do.

A loyal friend through and through,
We’ll remember when we first got you.
It may take time for our hearts to mend,
But you will always be our best friend.

Written in the light of a toothache I have had for a week, which is now sorted!

Tooth in constant agony,
Overbearing pain nagging me.
Only a dentist can sort this out,
The slightest noise makes my teeth shout.
Hot or cold things only aggravate,
And along comes the pain I really hate.
Called on the dentist to help with the pain,
Hours later it’s starting to wane,
Everything’s harmony in my mouth again!

Tutor is so strict,
Telling me how to do things.
Forgets I’m adult!

Christmas Chaos

Posted: December 1, 2013 in TANKA POEMS

December first comes,
The madness and stress begins.
People rush about,
Like the world’s going to end.
Christmas time is here once more!

Tree (All Along)

First saw you big, strong,
Think you been there all along.
Swishy leaves gold, brown.

Christmas has become the glue,
Exchanging presents from me to you.

I never see you any other time of year,
Card in the post a text message here or there.

I really will despair if you far go this time of year.
