A day late

It's a day late due to me traveling yesterday, but here is the last poem in the series One Day ;

That tastes so good
I want to eat it all
but if I do
I'll blow up like a ball

So just one piece
will do for me just now
that just one piece
will have to be my lot.

Signs of Spring

Walked into the city this morning and on the way back I noticed  a bush with no leaves but a few pale yellow flowers on it..  Later I also noticed pussy willow. Signs of Spring indeed.

Today's poem;

Don't shine that
in my eyes
I can't see
where I'm going

It's bad enough
to walk here
without even knowing

Will I fall or
will I not
should I just
stand here on this spot

The only way
I'll ever know
is to move forward
just to go.

Just a hint of snow

This morning while I was out running there was just a hint of snow, the odd snowflake falling as I ran by the river. However I think that maybe it was a little too warm and eventually rain began to fall as it has done all day.

Today's poem;

It's that time of year
just like the last
climb through the ages
from the past

Rememberings from
years gone by
they make you laugh
they make you cry

Reflecting now
upon your life
to set the tone
to journey on.

A cloudy day in Sarajevo

Well it's a bit of a cloudy day in Sarajevo, but an old friend called me late morning and we had an early lunch and a nice chat in the city.

When will they stop
maybe never
they just go on
for ever and ever

To inspire
and to give joy
a gift from heaven
for this little boy.

One Day

One Day
is all it took
to get the content
for this book

It came out flowing
like the rain
it came out softly
with no pain

The words jumped out
I wrote them down
to give the answer
to your frown.

Power cuts.

In the 5 months I have lived in the apartment here in Sarajevo I have had I think 4 power cuts. It is usually the block of maybe 4 or 5 buildings.It probably happens in other parts of the city too from time to time and it only lasts for 45 minutes to an hour. Not sure what it is but it happens during the daytime and at night.
Anyway here is today's poem;

The Sun is warm
and gives me strength
warming now
my complete length

The rain refreshes
in the heat
the Moon the Stars
this day complete.

Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day to all. Here is the poem for today;

Rain has
washed the air
Sun now
brightens all around

Footsteps move along
making headway
on the ground

Birds are flying
the sky is blue
I am making progress
on my way to you.

This Day

This day
the words have
come for me

Come to carry away

Carry away
these feelings not meant
for me
not meant for me
this day.

What are you doing

What are you doing?
there's people over there
you'll make a fool
of yourself
have people laugh
and stare

I know that you're
a showman
and like to entertain
I know that you're
not stopping
you'll do it again
and again.

The Cowshed

The Cowshed's in the corner
the stream runs
down the hill
the waterwheel
is turning
and grinding
at the mill

It's nice here
in the country
folk greet you
with a smile

The air is sweet
and lively
I would walk
a country mile.

Snow time plus poem

The last couple of days we have been getting light snow and this morning when I went for my run, there was around 10cm ( 4 inches ) of fresh crunchy snow on the ground, though most roads and footpaths had been cleared.
Here is today's poem;

This country is finished
I heard the man say
It's not like it used to be
back in the day

When people
were friendly
and gave up their seat
when streets were tidy
and children
kept neat

Our mom's
made our beds
and we played
in the street.

This country's
not finished
soon strong
it shall be

with a coming together
of you and of me.

On a snowy day

It's snowy outside so here a warm poem ;

The warm drink
is in my hand
I swallowed it down
and life is grand

It's warmth inside me
spreads throughout
and comfort
now I feel.

Starting the second third

So this is the 8th poem and so it starts the second third part of the series;

I watch the singer
sing a song
and go within myself

The tune cries out
and up I stretch
for the book
upon the shelf

The words I read
and think again
what musings
can be done

I look out through
the window
am greeted
by the Sun.

Speaks for itself

Sitting here
in my room alone
feeling quiet
and feeling at home

An inspiration
comes to me
and on the paper
I write

A book one day
it could become
I think one day
it might.

Hope you like it, enjoy the day :)

I almost forgot !

I almost forgot to post this today ;

Love is
within the heart
a love that grows
just from a spark

A love you give
without condition
a love received
with kind permission

It stays inside
an eternity
a love for you
that comes from me.

It's number 5 !

The wonder of modern technology had me receiving a video call from an old friend of mine in Australia this morning. I was looking out of the window at foggy cold conditions, while behind him were palm trees and the sounds of parrots.
Anyway here is today's poem;

Hey may I have
that pie over there?
can you tell me
what is the filling?

Will the taste
be sweet or
will it be salt?
if I eat it all
am I at fault?

For wanting that pie
over there.

Your daily poem

On a bright and sunny yet cold morning in Sarajevo. Here is today's poem;

It's the last day
of the month
a new one
tomorrow will come

There's bills to pay
so money to find
and don't forget
my run

and when that's done
and put aside
there are days
for laughter and fun.

I hope this brightens up your day too, back again tomorrow :)

Today's Poem

It was snowing when I went out for my run today, then it turned to rain and now it's snowing lightly again. So here is today's poem, the 3rd in the series;

When are we
going to town?
I want to do
some shopping

When are we
going to town?
I want to
get some tea

When are we
going to town?
I want to
see some old mates

When are we
going to town?
to get some
shopping done.

Hope you like it and remember there are more to come :)

The Second one

Today in Sarajevo it is blustery but the temperature is around 11C, so not too bad. Well as promised here is the second poem ;

My father
was a coal miner
into darkness
he would go

One day with him
to the pit I went
the mines for me
to show

The heat and dust
that I did see
on the faces
of the men

The message
did impress on me
to not go back again.

Hope you like it and stay tuned for more :).
