The Soundtrack Of My Life

Posted: February 10, 2015 in TANKA POEMS

Music creates a memory,
Feelings, people and places.
I hear a certain song,
Striking emotions from within.

Remembering when it was heard,
The situation and surroundings.
Things around me at the time,
What my mood was like as well.

Music creates a memory,
No matter if its good or bad.
It will always be a part of me,
As the soundtrack of my life.

Hoovering, Dusting,
Keeping things all nice and clean.
Cleaning out cobwebs,
Must be done the weekly chores,
Doing housework is a pain!

Song In My Head

Posted: January 20, 2014 in TANKA POEMS

There Deep in my mind.
Seems to be stuck on repeat,
Constantly playing.
Makes me want to sing along,
Annoying song go away.

Thoughts Of Summer Days

Posted: January 20, 2014 in TANKA POEMS

Clinging by a thread.
One more thought about those times,
Remembering you.
Thoughts of the happy moments,
How I miss you summer days.

Staring Out

Posted: January 16, 2014 in TANKA POEMS

View from my window.
Watching people rushing by,
Often gazing in.
They catch me watching them pass,
I shouldn’t really stare out

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!
