Well this a poem from my heart and a tribute to Bleep and Booster my IVF twins that passed that are now in Gods hands.

Gone but not Forgotten, Bleep and Booster

AdvantagesThey gave me so much in so little time

DisadvantagesI lost them

"Well this a poem from my heart and a tribute to Bleep and Booster my IVF twins that passed that are now in Gods hands. Never a day goes by when I don't think of you, And all the things that you would be able to do, I was so upset, when they told me I could not conceive. At first it was really hard to take in and believe. We were given a chance on IVF treatment, A baby at the end would be heaven sent. Travelling 50 miles to the hospital ..." Read review

THE DAY THEY TOOK YOU AWAY Review with images

AdvantagesA poem about my wonderful little boy

DisadvantagesIt's sad

"At first there were two, Then there was you, At 14 weeks you were kicking, At 26 weeks you were born. Home & Away was just starting, The pains we went through, On the floor we fell, The ambulance came, And took us away. So many doctors, And so many machines, Your heart had stopped beating, With mine split in two. The blood, I lost, Made mummy very very I'll. Weeks later I had woken, And you was not there, They said you were ..." Read review

MOMENTS

AdvantagesIt should hopefully make you think!!

DisadvantagesA bit long

"There are certain times of sadness when a little spark of happiness enters your mind and finds its way to your heart; your heart shakes up your brain and in a state of half slumber, the latter responds: "Yes, I knew this all the time..." MOMENTS From so much repeating to myself That life has not treated me well, I forgot about the fact, That I had not been very fair to life either; So many futile complaints, And the persistent struggle ..."

************ IF ************

Advantagesnone whatsoever

Disadvantagesloss of your time

" IF If clouds were pastel coloured in a rainbow tinted sky And raindrops fell like sparkling jewels delighting every eye With greys and darkness banished to another unseen place And every child awoke to sunlight shining on their face If summer breeze was finely tuned like tiny tinkling bells And winter winds sonatas blew across the snowy fells If crows had song like nightingale and roses always bloomed And air was sweet and mountain fresh ..."

An Orkney Quartet

AdvantagesI actually like them even after all these years, which is unusual for me

Disadvantagesyou might think they're awful

"I'm not writing poetry at the moment. It's something I do intensively at intervals, when moved to do so. Here's a quartet of poems from my visit to Orkney in 1980. They were written many years later when I discovered my journal of the time. AN ORKNEY QUARTET i.The Crossing Ola races scudding clouds. Arse to the wind, She ploughs the fertile waters, Scratching her chalk-white passage On the cleft sea slate. Swell-hopping fishermen ..." Read review
