help and inspiration

Just a word about inspiration and help. I would like to thank my brother for supplying both of these over the years, with out him I would have learnt how to draw and paint, with out him and his prayers I would have become a Christian, my life was changed many years ago, Thank you Niall.
My brother is an Artist who produces work of great quality, if you are not acquented with his work please do so.

To whom is may concern.

Long ago
more years than I care to remember
we played
laughed and cried.
lived and survived.
Now we live different lives
different dreams
We have family;s
who play together
share together
they laugh and cry.

May we be a help and inspiration
to them
so they may intern
may do the same

9 months

Hello, its been 9 months since my last post. Lots has happened and nothing has happened, thats life. Lots that has blessed me but would be of no interest to you my reader. Work is going well. I have been doing arty things. I hope you like the result.
I have been getting back into Scratch Board. This picture of a Bearded Dragon in 10"x8". Posted it on deviant-art, seems to have gone down well there.
I have not been writing much poetry recently, although I have written a couple of murder mystery plays, I have keeping busy.

I also have a new camera, A casio Exilim, I love what it can do, it can take video and slow motion video.

Hope you like it.

So to instant poetry.

Slow motion

Don't you wish
wouldn't you like
to have a slow motion button
that could slow down life.
May be pause and rewind
what would you revisit
a good moment to relive
a bad moment change.
We have to live in the now
no slow motion button for us
other than out memories
and capture moments
in our digital cameras.

see you all next time.

Chinese Beer

Went to a Chinese restaurant today and tried a glass of Chinese Beer, it was so good. It was called Tsing TAO. So refreshing. The meal was good not expebsive, it was shared with some great friends. The kind of friend you never get tired of seeing or talking to.
I will be going back some time. Though I will have to burn all thought extra callories off first. Another visit to the gym.

sweet smooth taste
Rice and Hops.
Blended to perfection.
Food from Wok
Friends to share

The MoonBridge

The Moonbridge was a painting and I think I remember a sculpture. both done by My brother Niall. Over the years the images of the moonbridge stayed with me. Then about 10 years ago I got the Idea for a book. I called it the Moonbridge. I have finally finished typing it up. My next step is to give it to a friend who was an English teacher and let her look it over. I may to make ome changes to my poor English and may be re write some of it if there are obvious continuity errors etc. But on the whole it is finished. Then I will look for a publisher. Who know. nothing ventured nothing gained.

The MoonBridge

Rising up majestic.
To the sky.
The Moonbridge stands.
Two figures climb to the top
awestruck by what they see.

pin pricks of star light
break up the vast expanse
of deepest black space.
millions of stars.
The universe sretches out

The moon
Orbiting our planet
Glows from the sunlight
How many of us fail to look up
to see the beauty above us

The Brave One

saw a film the other day call The Brave One. It starred Jodie Foster. I recommend you watch it, its about how she comes to terms with the violent death of her boy friend. This changes her life and she becomes a vigilante. Ultimately she gets revenge on the guys that killed her boyfriend, and she gets her dog back.


What is it to be brave?
Is it
Sitting in the dentist not shaking.
Is it
Fighting for your country
Is it
Being in the same room as a spider.
Is it
Talking in front of strangers.
Is it
Coping with an illness.
May be is all of these
Or non of these.
Like all things in life
The bounderies are not black or white.
It is more the case
That bravery
Id what ever we want it to be.

I have been comissioned to do a painting on a wall. I am so looking forward to it. I will take regular photo so you can all see the results.

Can you guess what it is yet.

Cryptic clues
Hints with word or brushes
Unfolding a picture
Revealing the meaning.
So the artist
So the word smith
Tempts us
Guides us
Pushes us
To make a guess.
Then shortly
We sigh
Oh I see it now.

Artist or wordsmith
Has done their job.

Came home with a Key

Today I came home with a key from work.I have to get it back early. Small mistake are easy to make and they can cause big problems. Some poeple fret to much about making mistake, I say we should be careul but we should allow our selves to make mistake and not beat ourselves up when we do. I'm no good we say, I'am so stupid we say. I say we are normal we are human we make mistakes.


We have all made mistakes.
We have all sinned.
But the show must go on
some times we are bound,
trapped by our mistakes
Either by hiding from them.
Not saying sorry
or even not being forgiven.
