The Beach

You can smell the seaweed growing,
Taste the salt tang in the air
You can feel the cold wind blowing
Running tendrils through your hair
You’re on the beach

You can feel the insects nipping,
See the seagull as he flies,
Feel the sand ‘neath your foot slipping,
Hear the ocean as it sighs
You’re on the beach

There’s a sense of open spaces
‘Neath the azure crystal skies
Wipes all mem’ry of other places
From the world behind your eyes
You’re on the beach

There’s a feeling of elation
As you walk with carefree tread
And you join the jubilation
Of the eagle overhead
You’re on the beach

You climb a bit of driftwood
To get a better view
And you wish that you could fly above
The dunes surrounding you
You’re on the beach

NIGHT-TIME LISTENING

I listen out, on a starless new night
to hear the sounds under the pitch black veil,
to hear the starling sounds of the hidden
world that lies outside, beyond my home wall

The path that runs the back, from pub to road
Often bears witness to men being cats,
singing out of tune as they stagger home
oblivious to the Simon Callow in us all.

The motorway never sleeps, it's arteries
clogged with night drivers desperate to get
home or to the depot – no relief yet
as their engines reach my tired brain.

The rain follows soon, dripping pitter-pat
on the concrete outside, every noise a
crack that splits the road and my ears
put sinister outsiders in the frame.

There is, it seems, no sleep for me tonight.
The dark is gaining the new morning hues.
The cat scratches the door for her breakfast
I might as well get up. I might then write -
it seems I'm certainly in the right mood!

I was in an odd mood this evening...

Senses seize as, outside, the hunter hears,
his ears pricked for the slightest of all sounds.
So you quiet your breath against your death
and bury yourself in the straw and crops
of the barn. His gun clicks at a stray sound
and he looks into the barn. His eyes probe
the dark heart, searching for light and depth
judging, forever searching for drops
that give away your presence to him now.
He steps inside, raises his gun and calls
for you to surrender but you know you
cannot. You know you may die here,
in this barn, in this fear with hope so near
the border clear across to neutral land
just miles from your prison unplanned.
A step closer, he's looking over you
Nerve break? Nerve hold? Run? Stay? What will you do?

THE LOQUACIOUS LUNATIC
Decadently dressed
in burning Mayonnaise,
the loquacious lunatic
turns to the town to say:-
“I saw the stars come out tonight,
above the light lit street.
Far away from the towns I went
to see the beauty they cheat.”
Wandering wild
in the cement desert
the loquacious lunatic
declares down the dark
“Peace you deny me, sleep you defy me,
to wander in search of your plight.
The blue shirt defender, the red light and tender
gives me a room for the night.”
Laid out Low
in a cage declared
loquacious lunatic
considered his solution shared.
“I defy all you call normal,
as you verily defy mine.
Your solution denies absolution
and, soon, for my liberty I'll pine.”
Prisoned in Purgatory,
dressed in clothes not his
the loquacious lunatic
sets out the question and quiz
“Tell me this, oh friend of the smart,
who reads and comprehends the rhyme.
What will you do, when they come for you
when they decide now it's your time?”

Just a little rhyme I whipped up. I'm starting to enjoy little ones like this.
Quote:
Dogs bark, dogs chase, dogs can be thin or fat,
But despite all their quirks, because of their perks, I'd rather a dog than a cat!

I tend to have more trouble with longer, more serious ones like you write so well, Welshie.

Here's one I wrote about a British game show called "QI" or "Quite Interesting". Look it up if you haven't seen it. It's hilarious! Fair warning though, there is a bit of mature-rated content but it's rarely explicit.
Quote:
I once played a game called QI
With a quizmaster named Stephen Fry
I used all my brain
But 'twas all in vain
For Fry made my points go "bye bye"! :(
XD
