Paul Holmes Poems
Appearances can be deceptive, And to the superficial gaze The outside seems dull and grey Plain looking in many ways,
* A Tibute To Mary Jones
She opened a special Welsh Book Given as a present from a Friend, She daily set aside time to look Upon those words which her heart did mend.
* Weathering The Storm
A Red Poppy basking in the radiant sun Sees deer and rabbits hastily run; They sense a storm in the breeze And race for shelter under mighty Oak trees.
Her Smile Makes Me Smile
Whenever I feel sad And life’s troubles wear me down I just look upon her face And no longer wear a frown.
A warm, clear turquoise sea Is the stage of a beautiful scene, A majestic stingray ballet Paints a picture so serene.
For four-thousand years and more He’s withstood the tests of time; Extremes of heat and cold Haven’t cut him down in his prime;
A tiny fist Uncurls, Reaching out It grasps a finger;
Carried on a soft whisper Of a breeze Little bubbles float aloft, Delighting little children
A Single Snowflake
One among billions Unique silver crystal Floating In a turquoise sky
* Haiku - Peacock Feather
Forwards And Backwards
One step forwards, two steps back Is a familiar manner we tread; We seem unsure of which way to go, A Labyrinth of routes in each head.
Footprints In Time
Walking on white Powder soft sand My footprints Left impressions,
</>What is this life we live these days When we have no time to stand and gaze At a stunning sunset on a summer’s eve Or, the delicate web a spider did weave.
A Lovely Day
He stood at the bus stop
Black coat soaking wet,
The rain was pouring down,
Was his face one of regret?
No, he was quite happy
