You make my heart pound

And my soul glow

Spark passions of delicious delight

My spirit ascends

In the most intimate of embraces.


Secret Places


We store so much inside

We are all variable

In our hidden compartments

When dealing in matters of the heart.




It was written all over her face

Everything she had been holding back

All those pent up feelings and emotions

It could be held back no longer

Like a damn bursting forth

It came gushing out

Verbally at first

Followed by tears of relief.




Predictions foretold

Readings of many kinds

Outguessing the odds

Gauging the outcome of events

Needing to know the outcome

Omens of good and bad

Signals given from all around

To make known in advance

Indications of what lays ahead

Calculating the bonuses of this

Anticipating what will happen

The future is being read

Evaluating all he pros and cons.




Wild weather and coldness descend

Icicles clinging abundantly all around

Naked trees and bushes swaying

To the winds will as snow

Erupts from the heavens slowly

Reverting a monochrome world to white.




Decorations and coloured lights

Excitement of coming festivities

Carols and family gatherings

Expectations of snowy days

Making snowmen, snowball fights

Baking smells wafting around the home

Enticingly tickling the senses

Rich in celebrations and memories.
