Pebbles Fade into Dust 


Long ago I lay bruised on a pebble beach

The jagged rocks had cut me deep

I remained bleeding and afraid

Beached, my heart remained in pieces


The old shards are now blunt

Crusty edges softened by time

And light ascends from their sandy chasms

As a shining, sifting through scarred fears


I now see clearly beyond the gravelly shore

My distant dreams, changing into realities

I am finished hurdling fences and walls

My lifelong barriers have been ground into dust

And love awaiting, serenades my soul with trust

I’ve attached a first stanza teaser below … and as is Ivor’s way the 2nd stanza has a contrasting twist …




Comfort Zone



We have disappointments in our own little world of self-belief

They come as unexpected reality shocks, like an ocean’s hidden reef

And we suddenly find ourselves in rough waters out of our depth

Beyond the imaginary comfort zone of our own homely wealth

Veiw the 2nd stanza here >> https://coffeehousewriters.com/comfort-zone/

Going For a Stroll



When will I be too old?

To be left alone, out in the cold

With my naked words still unsold

Believe It or Not

Hi dear readers and followers. I have been quieter than normal lately, and this is mainly because some of my time has been taken up by my new commitments with “Coffee House Writers” … yes you heard right!!
I applied to join the prestigous Coffee House Writers magazine two months ago, and I am humbled and proud to announce that I have been accepted into the group. I am now an ‘Intern’ contributor at “Coffeee House Writers”.
At the moment I am very much a learner, and I submitted my first article/poem to my mentor/editor this week, which is due for publication next Monday. I am both very excited and very nervous, but no matter what happens, I am going to give this incredible opportunity my best shot .. Now for my profile photo at the magazine, and of some celebratory Music …
