A STORMY WEEKEND:

A STORMY WEEKEND:
After going through a hurricane alert earlier,
"Storm Brian" is rearing it's ugly head.
Heavy rains and winds are evident,
I think I will return to bed.
 
With all my household chores complete,
Not safe to go outside.
I will take a pile of books with me,
And in my bedroom I will hide.
 
I hope your weekend is more outgoing,
Plans made go well.
Fun and laughter in your lives,
I look foreward to your tales.
 
As the rain and wind is lashing,
Againts my window pane.
We've yet to go through Winter,
To experience better weather again.
 
HAPPY WEEKEND.

THE RING:

above is a picture exactly like my engagement 
ring which this poem is about:
 
THE RING:
Yesterday I went food shopping,
For much needed food without fail.
Because on Saturday I have heard
The South Coast has been forecast severe gales.
 
I will be staying indoors,
That there is no doubt.
But when I returned home from the shops
How I wanted to shout.
 
You see my engagement ring,
Was missing from my finger.
I didn't stop for a coffee,
I  for one minute didn't linger.
 
I traced my steps back to the shop,
Eyes glued to the ground.
Hoping to find my ring,
But no such luck I'll be bound.
 
Then I reached the shop,
I asked the cashier,
"Had my ring been handed in,?"
No such luck I fear.
 
I then returned home
Heartbroken I confess.
For on my finger ,
I would be engagement ring less.
 
At my front door,
My heart wanted "To Sing".
For there attached to my keys
Was my beloved ring.
 
How it got there,
Remains a mystery I can tell.
I know my fingers have got thinner,
But alls well that ends well.

BLAST FROM THE PAST: DON'T DESPAIR:

I am taking a leaf out of my own book
about life:
BLAST FROM THE PAST:
DON'T DESPAIR:
 
She was a sad and lonely person.
Confidence gone astray.
Life looked hard and bleak,
Her man had gone away.
 
She lived on auto pilot.
Each day was a battle to bear.
Her shoulders felt so heavy,
With worries and so many cares.
 
This went on for quite a while.
Friends gone by the wayside.
She knew life had to change,
That no  more could she hide.
 
Books and CDs was that change,
Written by a man named Paul.
Music came back into her life,
In the shape of Daniel O Donnell.
 
Slowly her confidence returned.
A smile returned to her face.
She had accepted what life had dealt her
Once more belonging to the human race.
 
There was a light at the end of a long tunnel.
A light so very bright.
She looked at things more positively,
The world looked a wonderful sight.
 
I know this happens to be true,
That person of course was me.
Who'd had thought years later,
I'd visit Nashville Tennessee.
 
So with tenacity and faith.
Let life be a joy each day.
We all have but one life to live.
So enjoy it come what may.
 
(I will have to practice what I preach )

MIDWEEK WEDNESDAY:

MIDWEEK WEDNESDAY:
Well after the events of Monday,
Today I have household chores to do.
But before I commence those tiresome tasks.
I wish to say Happy Wednesday to you.
 
May your day be pleasureable,
Full of laughter and fun.
That's my wish to each of you.
I'm off out after my chores are done.
 
HAPPY WEDNESDAY:
YVONNE.

A MOST WEIRD DAY:

A MOST WEIRD DAY:
The start of the week yesterday,
Started weird without a shadow of a doubt.
Please continue to read,
I'll tell you what it was all about.
 
First, our area had an electricity failure,
Emergency lights lit where I do dwell.
Couldn't  use my pc and such,
So caught up with some reading I will tell.
 
In time the electricity returned,
We knew that a hurricane was to hit the UK.
In "Northern Ireland"
A place I once resided I may say.
 
The gentle breeze got stronger,
The lightness of day got dim.
I began to feel uneasy.
So unsure and uncertain.
 
The next scene was like out of a sci fi film,
The once yellow sun turned red.
The sky was completley orange,
As I held my aching head.
 
It remained like that for a few hours,
Was this the "End Of The World?"
As I stood looking out of the window.
Mesmorised by the scene as it unfurled.
 
Well alls well that ends well.
The outside world returned.
The force of the hurricane escaped us.
But a lesson from it I learned.
 
Live for the present,
Forget the worries of yesterday.
Be thankful you're alive.
Is what I would like to say.

YOU WOULDN'T BELIEVE THIS.......

YOU WOULDN'T BELIEVE THIS....:
Yesterday started wonderfully,
Went out for a brisk walk.
Saw many visitors along the way.
Some stopped to have a talk.

I then arrived home,
Rubbish had to be discarded.
Went out to the trash bin.
Then a terrible Sunday started.

My Iphone fell to the ground,
As I disposed of my trash.
The front was truly shattered,
Many thoughts in my mind did flash.

What will I do without my phone,
Should an emergency arise.?
Visions of many situations,
Went before my eyes.

I then went out and bought a new one.
The trouble I had setting it just right.
I returned to the shop,
And told them of my plight.

One kind young man assisted me,
As much as he possibly could.
I then returned home
Wondering why was my head like wood.?

It took all day would you believe.
A few things still not quite right.
But I was so relieved to go to bed
And hopefully sleep through the night.

ONE FROM THE PAST.....MOONGLOW:

ONE FROM THE PAST:
MOONGLOW:
 
The moon shone serenly through the open window.
I gazed in awesome wonder at the view.
In a trance-like state I sit and ponder,
Remembering bygone  years I spent with you.
 
How we used to wonder through the woods,
In the countryside we'd sit and talk.
Then pick some wild flowers to take home.
Laughing all the way as we did walk.
 
Then there were days at the seashore.
Many years before moving there.
We fell asleep on the beach.
Resulting in heat stroke I declare.
 
How long I sat there moon gazing.
Memories came flooding back making me think. 
Just before I closed the curtains,
Once again the "Man In The Moon" gave me a wink.
