Fear is a mans best friend

Patrick’s Pic and Word Challenge 250: Fear

I thought I would do something different for this challenge as John Cale’s song says a lot about fear. This is also one of my favourite songs. I hope you enjoy…….

Standing waiting for a man to show
Wide eyed one eye fixed on the door
This waiting’s killing me, it’s wearing me down
Day in day out, my feet are burning holes in the ground

Darkness warmer than a bedroom floor
Want someone to hold me close forever more
I’m a sleeping dog, but you can’t tell
When I’m on the prowl you’d better run like hell
You know it makes sense, don’t even think about it
Life and death are just things you do when you’re bored

Say fear’s a man’s best friend
You add it up it brings you down

Home is living like a man on the run
Trails leading nowhere, where to my son?
We’re already dead, just not yet in the ground
Take my helping hand I’ll show you around
You know it makes sense, don’t even think about it
Life and death are just things you do when you’re bored

Say fear’s a man’s best friend
You add it up it brings you down

Lights radiance shows all

Moon Goddess

I have posted some poems lately and have received lovely comments. I have posted this one before but it is close to the anniversary when it was first written.

This time is for Patrick’s Pic and a Word Challenge #230: Moon

The moon
full and bright,
in my garden
casts shadows among the trees –
I thought I saw
you there
dancing –
a woman of beauty,
a moon goddess.

Moonbeams casting
landing on petals,
shining on my skin,
entering my being
enveloping my heart
making it race,
distracting my thoughts
so I think of nothing
but her,
dancing in my garden,
lighting my life.

I shall sit here –
awaiting her come near
that I might steal a kiss,
my arms
encircle her waist
drawing her to me,
to feel her warmth,
her goddess fullness –
a moment of passion
to believe that
the dancing in the shadows
is not a dream,
a dream of beauty,
a dream of
my moon goddess –
casting her beams
throughout my garden
enchanting
captivating……..

Awe in flying

The Photo a Week Challenge: Up In The Air
Pic and Word Challenge: Awe #224

So at ease
soaring above
watching in awe
watching with lovesquare-tailed-kite_flying_named_home_sept-2016
Sometimes alone
sometimes in threes
freed from the ground
freed from the trees

Large in the sky
spreading of wings
riding aloft
this one not sings

Large is impressive
filling the sky
but small is too
this butterfly

Tourist – Pic & Word Challenge

Patrick’s Pic and a word Challenge #217: Tourists

Inspired by Patricks post I have modified his words and used my image just for fun

Yea, though I ride
Through this valley of death
I will fear no hardship
Among these many tourists with me
My camel and cameleer comfort me
I shall return to the car park
Where my rent-a-car awaits
Or find solace on an Australian beach
Just over there
And swim between the flags.
