A WOMAN'S FACE:

A WOMAN'S FACE:
Helen had a face that launched a thousand ships,
Mine would launch a canoe.
With visible lines here and there,
I don't know what to do.
 
I bought creams advertised on TV.
But to no avail.
What they don't tell you in TV,
That they're promoted by young girls.
 
The mirror is no longer a friend of mine.
That I'll have you know.
For looking into the evil glass,
One more line it shows.
 
The problem is I feel "Young".
Not a bad thing I agree.
But it's the outside that's all wrong,
The part that people see.
 
Perhaps you think me vain.
Perhaps you think me mad.
But I like to think they're laughter lines.
Which at the end of the day is not so bad.
 
*since writing this I have many more"

TUESDAY IS HERE

TUESDAY IS HERE:
With Monday done and dusted,
Let this day be of good cheer.
For each and every day is precious,
Be happy  Tuesday is here.

I hope to go for a walk
After shopping is complete.
Who knows, there may be oppourniities,
For new friends to meet.

This is a special week for me,
All will be revealed as the week progresses.
Suffice to say I'm going down memory lane.
I'll leave it to you to make the guesses.

Have a wonderful Tuesday.
Wherever you may be.
Whatever  side of "The Big Pond",
Good wishes to you from me.

HAPPY TUESDAY:

LETTING GO:

LETTING GO:
Over the past few days,
Much reflecting I have done.
Thinking how much I have missed,
Thinking how much fun.

It's regarding my family,
Who no longer require their mum.
My health have been suffering,
I need healthier days to come.

I have tried every way possible,
To have them back in my life.
But no matter what I do or say,
It causes me tears and strife.

My eldest son even had "Major Surgery",
Some time ago without telling me.
Of course should he need anything,
I'll be there for him you see.

But I am "Letting Go",
I too have a life to live.
I need the "Old Me" back,
I've so much more to give.

My door will always be open
Should they care to call.
But I need to hold my head up high,
"Shoulders Back" and walk tall.

"Letting Go" won't be easy,
No longer will I wait for the phone.
Life for me has been intorerable,
Having no one to call my own.

I gave them a good start in life,
My unconditional love still in tact.
But there is only so much one can endure,
Believe me that's a fact.

FLOWERS ON A SUNDAY:.......

This is a true account of when 
I resided in N. Ireland:
This is my 600th poem on this blog: 
FLOWERS ON A SUNDAY:
It was in depth of winter,
Black ice on the ground.
I had to go to the shops,
Not a soul was around.

I pulled my scarf around my neck,
To keep the coldness out.
Gloves on my hands,
Golly, this is what winter is all about.

I gingerly walked down the lane,
A song going through my head.
It was a happy song.
I'd been singing since getting out of bed.

It was then that I saw it.
I could hardly believe my eyes.
It brightened up a winter's day,
Oh! what a lovely surpise.

There in all it's beauty,
Was some golden daffodills.
Blooming in a window box,
On someone's window sill.

I stood there in the coldness.
I just wanted to stay.
I surveyed the miracle,
Those flowers on a Sunday.

WEEK-END JOY:

WEEK-END JOY:
As the above picture say,
Have a "Purrfect Week-end".
May happiness and good weather,
Be yours from beginning to end.
 
Here it's very warm
Changeable one may say.
One minute it's raining,
Next the sun come out to play.
 
Me? I may take a stroll
In between showers that's the plan.
Then return home to chill out,
Not for me today a suntan.
 
Do have a wonderful week-end.
Whatever you may do.
Week-ends are precious,
That's my wish for you.
 
YVONNE.

HELLO TO FRIDAY:

HELLO TO FRIDAY:
Greeting Friday with open arms,
Out of the windows problems of the week go.
Although on the whole,
I have some good memories to show.

I managed to get up to date
With household tasks,
Had time to sit and read for a while,
Memories of that will last.

Also I got to the hairdressers,
For a much needed hair cut and chat.
It's the sort of thing we women love.
Well? what''s wrong with that?

Looking forward to the week-end.
Time to utterly relax.
Playing some suitable music.
A sure remedy that's a fact.

I sincerely hope your Friday
Will be fun, as to the week-end you go.
Making more happy memories,
That in your heart will glow. 

HAPPY FRIDAY:

AN EARLY AUTUMN?

AN EARLY AUTUMN?
The rain poured heavily
Throughout the night.
Today I noticed leaves on the ground.
Does this surely mean Autumn is in sight?

What happened to my dreams of summer?
Where have they gone indeed
As I stood and winessed the rain
Feeding the flowers....also weeds.

I had such high hopes for the summer,
Perhaps I sat around too long.
I listened to the dawn chorus,
As they greeted another day with a song.

A stray cat came into sight,
Not bothered by the rain.
Found something to eat I presume
As it wondered on  it's way again.

Have you realised your dreams of summer?
Or like mine let them slip pass.
Each day is for living.....I must remember,
And each one better than the last.
