Just For A Bit Of Fun…

Do you like this story?

Post written by Peter G. James Sinclair.

I wrote this in an email to my eldest daughter who is currently pregnant with her first child…

Having a grandchild on the way sorta pulls out the creative poetic side of me. I felt as though I was writing it for the beauty being created  within you.

Wrote this poem on Sunday. (see below)

Felt a bit like Dr Seussish in fact.

I think that once I have grandchildren I’ll be writing some new and fresh stories to tell them – poetry or prose we will see. But there will be a great reason to do so.

Just thought I’d share this one with you.

I was curled up reading  some old poetry – one of the books you bought me.

See what you caused.

Keep ’em coming.

Love ya.

Dad

Lazy Dazy

Lazy dazy

Pudding, pie

Feet up, head down

Read – Do try!

 

Sunday arvos

Spent at ease

Charge the batteries

Life new lease

 

Rugged up warm

In silent nook

Turn each page

Of curled up book

 

Dog extended

Just nearby

Breath expended

Do or die

 

Feast on poets

Dine on lives

Lived – long gone

Their words still thrive

 

Wind does whistle

Rain does splat

Clouds do dash

From there to that

 

Sleepy deepy

Droopy eyes

Dreary dreamy

Make thoughts fly

 

Imagined world

Visions bold

Paints a picture

Splashed with gold

 

Mountains climbed

Oceans crossed

Darkness veiled

Sun embossed

 

Purples, pinks

Orange, red

Grassy plains

Flowery beds

 

Jungles, deserts

Peaks and plains

Forests, grasslands

River’s veins

 

Battles raged

Wars of world

Victory snatched

Peace unfurled

 

Lazy dazy?

Such kerfuffle

Mind is racing

Brain is ruffled

 

When one’s still

Thoughts do pace

Ponder on

The human race

 

When one’s still

Thoughts do race

Ponder deep

Amazing grace

 

Amazing space

 

Amazing face

 

Amazing taste

 

Amazing waste

 

Amazing case

 

Amazing place

 

To spend

 

Our lazy dazy

 

Days.
