Chocolate And Strawberry Cake

Chocolate And Strawberry Cake

 

Under a colourful dome

Escaping the four walls of home

Seeking a relaxing coffee break

And a chocolate and strawberry cake

 

To be free, out and about

Leaving behind non-active doubts

Trying to exercise old bones and a weary soul

Not to worry, the brains always too bold

 

Under a cloud of hard knocks

Sailing alone without a windsock

On a calm sea of shimmering blue

Navigating towards the horizon’s final view

Water-logged Boots – Ivor Steven

My poem ‘Water-logged Boots, published at FREE VERSE REVOLUTION, and thank you to Kristiana for your kind consideration of my piece…

FREE VERSE REVOLUTION

Yes, I am small in this overburdened world

But I flutter freely when unfurled

I could be a family picture collage

Or a tiny squirrel amongst the foliage

On his journey, of ups and downs

Collecting and storing his acorn crowns

The trick is to enjoy the ups

While the floodgates are shut

Sometimes, I did nearly drown

Other times, I floated upside down

During the many seasonal rains

I wondered, if I’d every swim again

So then, I pretended to write a biblical book

Ignorantly thinking no-one would ever look

Afterwards, I thought I could walk on water

Then my boots became water-logged

And if you need to walk a mile in my shoes

You’ll have to learn how to swim, and sing the blues
