The End of the year – 2016 Poetry

In 2016 I have managed to write and release 5 poetry collections. There have been times when I thought I’d just give up, leave the writing alone but somehow dug deep to keep writing. And I am glad that I did dig deep to find new thoughts to write about, new ideas to explore and to try different things where possible.

Looking back through the poetry of this year, I have found it a difficult task as I looked through each of the collections to find my favourites.  However I have selected 3 poems below that just some of my favourite writing from this year, but there are so many more. I have put the links to the collections below for you to read at your leisure.

Thank you if you have read any of my poetry.

Here’s to more writing in 2017.


Here are the links to the five collections from 2016


 

A few favourites (but there are so many more):

‘SILENT FOOTSTEPS’

Silent footsteps
Trodden upon the hill
Remain timeless
Silent and still

If the hills could speak
They’d call out
To say s/he was here
Walking the same footsteps
Just the other day
And they lay beneath the steps
That you have just walked

Looking out from where you stood now
They too stood right here
Seeing the same view
(Albeit in a different light)
But the same fields for miles
The same path walked for both minds

Two hearts crossed paths
But on different days and different times
The two hearts did beat in the same place
Just not at the same time
Or together side by side

With the wind wailing
I can’t hear the hills speak out
About the silent footsteps
Therefore onwards I walk
And with no trace of any footsteps
I never knew that you were here

How close two hearts can be
Yet are so very far away
With only with the same view
To savour and dream
In front of the eyes

Of the two separate hearts
That walk the same path
Upon the same hill
Both walked the path
Leaving silent footsteps
For the hill to remember
In silence and stillness.

‘SHE’S DIVINE AND ON MY MIND’

Spying with my eye
She’s divine and on my mind

Should you be there at all (I may say)
Sitting upon my thoughts
Speaking gently to my heart

Stroking her hair behind the ear
Sensitively I sit seduced by you
Staring and glaring into your eyes

Star struck and lost in your beauty
S/he holding hands softly
Spine tingles as one hand strokes another

Strings of the heart are plucked away
Sounds of the heart are starting to play
String by string a song is written and performed

Sorry is the eye for not smiling earlier
Smiling as bright as the sun shines
Sun setting upon my heart and mind
Soothing the world we have captured a moment
Sorry is the eye from you and I not glancing sooner

Subtle are the thoughts
Soaked with lust I must pause for a moment

Spying with my eye once more
She’s divine and on my mind.
