#RubyTubeDay Poetry ‘The Rivers Serenade’

#RubyTubeDay YouTube video of ‘The Rivers Serenade’

The Rivers Serenade

Beneath the weeping willow tree,
I watch the butterflies, fly free.
Attracted by the meadow flowers,
that I could sit and watch for hours.
I glimpse the rivers silver shimmer,
yet here inside the world is dimmer,
amidst the gentle country sounds,
as I lay, upon the ground.

Dappled sunlight reaches through,
bringing memories old and new.
Between the slowly swaying leaves,
of this our weeping willow tree.
And as I slowly close my eyes,
and cotton candy clouds sail by.
Memories trickle then cascade,
along with the rivers serenade.

The way our teenage limbs entwined,
sending shivers through my spine.
Then once we turn we’re face-to-face,
and locked in young loves strange embrace.
And low a moment full of bliss
with the thought of our first kiss
Beneath our weeping willow tree,
entwined together you and me

#RubyTubeDay Poetry ‘A Train Ride to Brum’

#RubyTubeDay YouTube video of ‘A Train Ride to Brum’

A Train Ride To Brum.

The train rumbles & rolls
over rusty rails.
Gazing from the window,
I watch.
Seeing lush green embankments
which fade down
to dull, dark, dusty wasteland.
The trees once tall and majestic
now look sad and depleted.
They are small and skeletal,
like anorexic teenagers.
No blossom as yet fills these trees,
they currently bloom with a spectacular display of
plastic carriers,
and a vast array of other exotic waste foliage.
Reaching to the heavens they forever seek solace
in the warm spring sun.
