Chasing Pavements


Here to perform for their living arrive, ‘more talents’
In their mind on world stage, reality chasing pavements
The likes of these acts been here many times before
“Please stop, look, listen! Never know what’s in store?”

Lots of people look over but are walking hurriedly by
A curious look of interest given, then whispery “Sigh!”
Some people stop for a moment, smile and give a wink
Drop a coin; place a note, “Depends, what they think?”

A crowd slowly gathering around, “The word has spread”
Seems like a good interest, “This show must go ahead!”
People smiling, giving money, thumbs up is the applause
“Wow, it’s great!” I hear, knowingly might be some flaws

Looking for some respect in life, sighting inner recognition
Selfishly want for belief in myself, hoping to realise ambition
Chasing pavements on a road to stardom is my life journey
“I’ll be a household name one day. Just you wait and see!”

I would personally like to welcome you to Rhyme Island and hope you enjoy your stay as you read my poems. ‘Rhyme Island’ is a fictional place of my own invention where I escape to in mind to pen my thoughts. It is a place where many people now visit from around the globe as ‘fans and followers’ of Rhyme Island. I am very thankful to the tools of virtual travel via the internet and the powers of social media. Using these methods has provided what I call ‘Tourism of Poetry’. People can visit Rhyme Island and I can reach far-away places at little or no cost to enjoy compositions. I’m an individual character, presently alive and well, who has been given a ‘god given’ DNA of creativity to write. Developed through no ending so far of living experiences the topics and stories constantly unfold. I put my craft to situations that call for reason or purpose hopefully in memorable cadences. My poetry can wrench the language with remarkable throw away insights in between straightforward observations and tales. In the narrative I try and include entertaining digression for feelings, thoughts and emotions to arise within the reader. Sometimes elaborate or over-fussy references may seem out of place but are written through my own vision and way of thinking.I sincerely hope you enjoy visiting Rhyme Island and it helps you in making life what you want it to be. “I hope you enjoy some happy reading please, with lots of smiles!”

Chasing The Shadow

Chasing The Shadow short poem

Drowned in unclogged arteries: thoughts. I am going to release a swarm of bees. It was your dark hour. A father sits outside your body to collect the stings. A restive finger on a blue gun invites the ghosts to

Chasing The Clock

Chasing The Clock short poem

Sitting here waiting while the clock face chases forward my memories bewildered and twisted, with unborn thoughts… Seeing things I’ve waited for all these years just go by as tear drops now, like a paper book each page is turned,

Chasing dreams in the night Powerful thoughts with lots of fight Dreams of space and time Imagination wanders as I unwind Fairies and unicorns in my world Things I always dreamed of as a young girl Dreams keep you going

Chasing A Rainbow

Chasing A Rainbow long poem

On a cloudy rainy day, In a maroon shirt Off white trousers, Tightly fit, She was chasing a rainbow, And the clouds were laughing, But she was not afraid, A rainbow was in her hands, A rainbow of dreams, In
