From “Cocoon”

Out of the cocoon

Into the light

Free at last

Butterfly flight


Out of the cocoon

And into a jar

Out of the cocoon

But didn’t get far

From “Poems Without Words”

Cover me in words that sing

I have no need for love that binds

When I need to fly

Speak to me with gentle wing

Let your rhythm lift my soul

Kiss me with your spirit

Let me breathe

Outline of Lyric “LOST”


I think I have found an App now, that will let me write the notes and play back to me.

A long tedious job if ever ther was one.

Maybe just the chords then!



Is she being led by others

or just wandering free?

Is she being controlled

Or is that the way she sees it – or the way she wants to be?

Is she blaming others for her lack of decision

Lack of direction

Is she struggling for independence

Or afraid to put down roots?

Not knowing what she really wants

She drifts.

middle bit…..

“There’s a magic in my heart

That says that freedom is my goal

I am not lost I’m just a wand Ring soul – –

But loneliness and tumbling grass

Comes at a cost And though I roam

I realise at last – 

This cycle of my life must pass

And  I must find my own way home”

Snippets from current editing of poems

From “Suddenly Awake”

You stood naked

While you waited…..

And while you ached inside

You washed yourself and dried

And found somewhere to hide

The towel and the nightdress


From “Stress”

Thoughts jump in panic

Heart beat quickens

But outwardly the body

Repeats expected tasks

And soldiers on

….Words plucked from ends of nerves

whistle round and through

never touching, never uttered

By the outward senses….


From “Circles”

….And yes, I love the life that I have now

But not the speed with which it seems to go

Without me even moving, doing nothing, day by day

The world that spins ignores me, as if it doesn’t know
