Is The Weather My Fault?

Can your thoughts and emotions change the weather?  I wrote this poem coming home on the bus 10 days ago so it was ready made for the Daily Prompt! Is The Weather My Fault? Why is it when I come home There’s a cloud above my house? The rest of the journey is sunny But this…

Swearing and Equality

Why do people have to swear In public places? It’s not fair! I object, I don’t like it I don’t want to hear them say “sh*t”, I especially don’t want to hear the “f” word But people think I am absurd. In the morning, on the bus, I hate it but don’t make a fuss.…

Bank Holiday

Probably best if we skip over my setting off the smoke alarm while cooking dinner – at least it works!   😀 This morning, Martin and Su on Heart radio were talking about the Bank Holiday that we had yesterday. Su said people shouldn’t be allowed to mow their lawns after 4.00 pm as it…

My Twin Flame

DAILY PROMPT He’s (She’s) So Fine What was it that drew you to your significant other? Their blue eyes? Their ginger countenance? Their smile? Their voice? I had already started writing this poem when I read the Daily Prompt above.  At the moment I’m single.  I’ve met my significant other in spirit and I know…

Bad Cyclists

What is it with cyclists? They think they own the street! They ride up on the pavements And ignore people they meet. They also go the wrong way Up one-way streets in town. They almost knock you over It really makes me frown. 😦 Why do most cyclists seem to think They are above the…
