Fish ‘n’ chips

Sometimes, poetry is meant to be heard and not read… (.7 mb. .46 min)

Fish ‘n’ chips on the Clyde
Fish ‘n’ chips on the side
Fish ‘n’ chips with too much salt
Fish ‘n’ chips and watching boats
Fish ‘n’ chips and sunny clouds
Fish ‘n’ chips and funny crowds
Fish ‘n’ chips and ugly dogs
Fish ‘n’ chips without the smog
Fish ‘n’ chips and coffee cold
Fish ‘n’ chips where ice cream sold
Fish ‘n’ chips where joggers sweat
Fish ‘n’ chips on wet park bench
Fish ‘n’ chips where sea gulls swoop
Fish ‘n’ chips where sea gulls poop
Fish ‘n’ chips with nip on the nose
Fish ‘n’ chips with nip on the toes
Fish ‘n’ chips is rubbish food, but
Fish ‘n’ chips taste so good
Fish ‘n’ chips and mountain sides
Fish ‘n’ chips on the Clyde !.

It’s great to be alive !

The car rolls three times
And bounces off a tree
That’s one I’ve survived
It’s great to be alive !.

A few cuts and bruises
Remind me of my breath
That’s one I’ve survived
It’s great to be alive !.

Hindsight brings clear vision
And makes the forest clear
That’s one I’ve survived
It’s great to be alive !.

Those rain clouds look Divine
It’s great to live in time
That’s one I’ve survived
It’s great to be alive !.

Another chance of life
Another glance at time
Another chance to love
It’s great to be alive !.

Seeing life as precious
And how that love is life
Another chance to love
It’s great to be alive !.

The life-joy of forgiveness
And letting go of luggage
Another chance to thrive
It’s great to be alive !.

A supernatural cradling
I know that God is mine
Another chance for Love
It’s great to be alive !.

A resurrected life….after a near fatal accident. Even rain clouds (problems) look great !.

His Love

Verse 1

His love is beautiful
His love immutable
His love is suitable to me
For His kindnesses
Come to my weaknesses
For He is the Love in me.
Continually loving me.

Verse 2

His love is natural
Beyond the dutiful
His love immovable to me
I’m now His righteousness
Flows from His faithfulness
He is the Life in me
The Vine Life transfers to me.

Bridge

His satisfaction
Satisfies me
Nothing more to do
The God of perfection
Grows inside me
Nothing more to prove
Proves the beautiful.

Verse 3

His love is wonderful
His love emotional
His love is musical to me
I found the natural note
That resonates my soul
He is the Life in me
His love is life in me
