Read the first verse of these award winning poems below:
The sun was high; the air warmed,
As they nailed him to the cross.
Overhead, scavengers swarmed,
Crowds jeered, others felt their loss.
HOLDING BACK A TEAR
With pockets full of hope,
A passport in my hand,
And promises of a new life,
Full of sun and sand.
DEATH OF A FRIENDSHIP
Don’t try to understand me, I’m just a man.
Believe me when I say, I did the best I can.
Sometimes I got it wrong, and was blamed,
This made our relationship inflamed.
Listen to me said the old man,
To the young man sat at his side.
Heed my advice as best you can,
Forget your youthful stubborn pride.
There are many more poems in "Atmospheric." These below are a mere sample:
LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE
If there was a ray of sunshine,
In a sky that never shone,
I would seek that ray of sunshine,
Long after all hope of light had gone.
The weary farmer knelt in vain,
In a desperate bid to save his crop.
Looking skyward, praying for rain,
Searching for a precious drop.
Dark clouds encase an angry sky.
Pungent smelling orchards shake.
Silence reigns litter coated streets.
Looters scurry about on the make.
Brave warriors mass the battlefield,
Strong and fearless one and all.
Dressed in armour, sword and shield,
Each prepared to fight and fall.
The Kiwi is a splendid bird,
Her feathers are a pretty sight.
Her enchanting song is seldom heard,
But she’s only seen out at night.
Storm clouds hover above like ghosts.
An icy wind stirs through the trees.
Grass sways whilst autumn leaves fall,
Dancing in step with the breeze.
Brightness shrouds early morning mist,
Ushering in a brand new dawn.
Birds dart in the trees up above,
Before hovering above the lawn.
IF TOMORROW NEVER CAME
If the rain no longer falls,
And the wind forgets to blow.
If the sun no longer shines,
And the flowers never show.
