… don’t people chatter a lot! Do you ever want some peace!


I sat in the cafe

Amid the chatter

Endless talk

People do natter!

Their words come forth in endless stream

Words, do they know what they really mean

This and that

Was it her or him

Amid this verbal endless din



Did you know

What happened

Oh what a so and so!

She uttered this

He did that

Was he really wearing a different hat

Do you honestly believe what they say

Or take it with a pinch of salt today!

Talking is something we all do best

To be silent would be a test

To hold that secret in your heart

You’d surely explode for a start!

Do we talk too much, oh for sure

I really must close that door

So I don’t have to listen, it’s loud

I need to put my head in a cloud!

I think sometimes it would be best

If we held our tongues, just a request

My head is aching with all the noise

And here as I quietly poise

I’ll meditate in strong repose

And breath deep breaths through my nose

And let it all go over my head

And not worry or fret about what is said

So take heed of my words here

And have a conscience to hold dear

And don’t forget when you open your mouth

All your words go north and south

Make sure they are worthy and true

As everyone will listen to you

Once said not to be taken back

So consideration do not lack

They are flown from your lips like gushing rain

And the World will never be the same again!

Whisper whisper! Keep it quiet

With your verbal conversational diet

A Zen moment I will begin

Amid this chaotic chatty din


Make a wish ….

I became interested in poetry about a year ago and try to write about things from my heart that are associated with events in my life or events going on in the World at large or closer to home. I am a visual artist and still am to a certain extent having exhibited some of my work as a visually impaired artist using sponges to paint. I have lost most of my eyesight in recent years to advanced glaucoma and my vision is now very limited I am finding my creativity now evolving in writing poetry and hope to publish my own book of verse in the future. I have a blog page on Wordpress where I share my poetry, art, photography, thoughts and favourite quotes and prayers at
