This is THE month!
Well here it is!
July at last.
All those months,
Have quickly passed.
Some time ago,
Now there's just four weeks or so!
I’ve got a dress and stunning hat,
Killer heels (they’ll do just that)!
Plans were made, hope all things done,
Fingers crossed for warming sun.
My lovely daughter, soon a bride,
Great emotion,cannot hide.
Man and wife that’s what they say,
For ever onwards from that day.
Here it is July at last,
Sod the cost!
We’ll have a blast!
There is no need for apologies
Lin,you have done nothing wrong
You see the mood swings move and shift
They have done all along
I write here as usual,from the hip
Sometimes shots they go astray
But I always reflect on yesterdays
Plus tomorrows another day
In manic overdrive I've been
This does increase one's lust
So catapulted I must venture
One last July bound thrust
I say just as I'm feeling
Disappointed now I quote
I am afraid I get P**sed regularly
And I'm not here now to gloat
Sleep patterns out the window
Whilst I am on this high
I would take any drug to get there too
My smoke would touch the sky
Anyone who knows me knows
I'm dangerous to the touch
But full of love and mischief
Some tolerate or hate so much
I love you all at present
This is how I feel
My emotions like a waterfall
Flow true,but yet unreal
Blue Angel I love our coupling
This is no"dear John"note
Just a reminder of the risks you take
Floating on board this Titans boat
Just off my fingertip
Not read back
Does anybody want a instant poetry flow tit for tat
Did that with a special person,seems like long ago now
She knows who she is
Her eyes were gorgeous
She knows the real me,sort of
Only just discovered some myself
Yes,I've been drinking
I am also a very naughty boy
That's what I am Blue Angel
Not totally good like you
We have connected,however
people here are trying to warn you
I am just me,nobody truly knows
Love you all
The Tea Party
Oh no the hatter is loose again
We know he's no lover of tea!
The white rabbit is checking his watch
His nose twitches nervously
Gazing impotently into its face
Being at least reassured the queen it seems doesn't require his head
The hatter giggles and smiles at us now
But he knows as he takes a bow
His face may turn red
Whatever queenie has now said
You see over tea so much is exchanged
With grins like the Cheshire cat
But as in the story of before
Alice has not yet twigged that
You see the Hatter is not always mad
Sometimes happy sometimes sad
The rabbit looks at his watch once more
His intention was not to bore
Or even to be preventing people from taking tea
His care for his fur and his friend you see?
If you decided to play croquet with flamingo hammer
It's not then, for the rabbit to yammer
But of this he will simply say
The game does not always have the smoothest play
So if you decide to take the shot
Just remember that you take the lot
So from the game do not hide
Buckle up for the ride
The Hatter is the Rabbits Friend
He knows the wishes that he may send
The Hatter? Well he isn't mad
But occasionally he gets very sad
Then he puts away the tea an gives it large on Lambrini!
So what's this to do with the bunny?
Nothing much he thinks it's funny
But sometimes smiles turn to tears
I think this is what the 'Rabbit' Fears
The dormouse yawns and goes back to sleep
From him you will get not a peep.
At this moment
At this moment,magnificent lights abound
This heart leaps caterpillar convulsions
Spinning,perpetual dust clouds off the ground
Covering,masking the sadness that constantly pervades
Wild banners flutter,spotlit
For all to view,from lofty ballastrades
Eye's wide see life he's now in love with
Dark shadows retreat into the gloom
At this moment,the whole world is his oyster
Everyone is born of the same womb
Time now doesn't matter,things he's done
The need to make all better,the need
To bathe all those hurt in golden sun
Tell you that he's really sorry,for the"me that isn't me"
Because there's a me that's full of love inside
Struggling to break free
Performing cartwheels in wild confusion
At this moment,giddy child
Trip the light fantastic,this infusion
Senses charged and going wild
Sleep is inconvenient,time wasted lying there
Shock waves charge the body
Static bristles through his hair
Plug into this momentum,an electrifying mix
Calm me down now with your loving
Sedate me with that fix
Does he know what he is doing
At this moment,feels alive again
Sometimes"this moment"is all you've got
He wants to befriend everybody,just have a good time
Dangerous liason's,life's seductions
When being too happy becomes a crime
Music blasts around the house now,dancing through each room
Flowering corridors of perception
Challenging the bloom
At this moment,looking forward
Strange and tentative contradiction
Which somersaults the negative
Built up frustration in restriction
But this odd sensation that I feel now
The see-saw high of the opposing low
It's so hard to level out when
"At this moment"you have nowhere left to go
Wanna do a sleep deprivation challenge.Guess who will win.
I F****** drink Whisky(okay I put lemonade in it),Lambrini is my go easy alternative.Wise Rabbit,you know I like you.Even the dude from the Emerald Isle has tried contact.Am I manic,hyper,me,or someone else.Come play with me,bet ya don't keep up.Love the follow on theme though,and very clever my friend.Impressed I am.(sounded like Yoda then didn't I),you know,that little wise fella from star wars.Seen him fight?.He's like a jumping bean mixed with an on fire leprechaun.

I. Just wanted to say that th poem entitled I WannaBeThere, is not for Titan. But the one below I .
Highs and lows,there she goes, rushing
down the street, into the shops
she never stops, no time to waste
Once again she counts to ten
or at least she tries,
but she can't refrain, from finding bargains
and all of them
Back home she runs, to find she has tons
of unwanted goods in her bags
she falls to her knees and there she sees
all that terrifies.
No energy left she lies in a heap
wants nothing to keep
can only weep.
sorry That doesNo t make sens the poemEntitledI WannaBe There Is for The livestock bloke you could ever met Next to my hubby andTitan. Love Baxi
Good one Maesteg, know exactly how you feel, I'm really missing going to the games in Cardiff, and if I was still working there as I was in the early 70's I would happily have given you a ticket or two , after joining me for a bite in the clubhouse.
I was lucky to look after 6 debentures at the Arms Park, through work, and also had a reasonable chance for tickets for most home internationals, as I was a member of Cardiff Rugby Club ( now the Blues ) at the time, and received fairly regular allocations, and had the opportunity to Q for tickets at other times.
When I moved to England in 77 I had to give up my membership, and also lost access to the debentures , but gained access to debentures at Twickenham and Lansdowne Rd, which I used several times. We also took a luxury box/suite at Wembley for 3 years - boy, that was expensive !
Hey ho, long gone now, but watching at home in comfort on a large screen TV isn't too bad I guess?
Come on Lions .
Sorry, should have made this a poem I guess ?
Soul sisters - I know what you are talking about!
1st July half way through the year
Day 182 but who’s is counting!!
183 days till Hogmanay
Let the celebrations begin.
Feel like I’m wishing my life away
But no just making plans for the future
No point in looking back
Forward is the way to go
Holidays planned oh fit fine
Looking forward to a big glass o wine
Passport in date, cases checked
Holiday clothes checked – hope they still fit
Oh well if they dinna – here comes a shopping trip
Already had a holiday, what a restful time
Ferry to Shetland, such a bonnie place
Weather was mostly fine just a wee bit mist
Food was great, company grand
Fish and chips and most northerly fish and chip shop
They were the best
Back to work feels like I’ve never been away
But never mind another holiday planned
but oh still 9 weeks to go
Baltic cruise will be just grand
No flying required – Rosyth is the port
On shore excursions still to be planned
First to Sweden, then on to Finland
Estonia, then St Petersburg
Back to Sweden, then Denmark
Oh then its back to Rosyth
Plans to be made great anticipation
What will we do?
Will just have to wait and see
Too much choice – I wait with baited breath
Let my husband have some choice
Hope he wants the same as me.
1st July – half the year
Memories a plenty
Dreams of things to come
Hope you all have dreams a plenty
It's the way things are meant to be
They always have been
Always will be
Forever is the Emptiness of me
Nothing is forever
Who knows if in the future
The emptiness be less.
If today was yesterday I would live it better.
Birthdays come round just once a year
If they came twice I'd be 132 years old my dear
And 134 on Independence Day
So 67 really, 134 wow, no thank you, no way
Gosh how the time has gone wizzing by
But better not to ponder why
Just have to accept my given lot
Thinking too deeply and lose the plot
Do I look that old I wonder
Well in the mornings yes but cast that thought asunder
'cause after a shower and a shave I know
That my age seems to backwards go
Yes making the effort really can tell
Rather than just sitting and on PD dwell
Think good thoughts and try to be as before
Don't on your past life close the door
Yes PD can make you feel your age and more
But remember about that open door
I try to push my problems to one side
And also try to retain some pride
Especially on the one day of the year
Yep on my Birthday, however old my dear
Give my family that one day of joy
To have some fun with this old boy
Drivel I know, but 'at my age' what do you expect ????????
Is Today Really Your Birthday?
Well,I. Then If. It. Is,
Happy Birthday , Mike!
How. Many. Candles did you Say?
What. The. Heck..,....,,
