Grateful & Hopeful


Awakened with memories I’ve managed to keep quite a while
So wonderful to be here just now, “I’m dressed with a smile!”
Marvels are about to happen yet again, “I don’t know what?”
Imagining lucky horseshoes on my good old boots, “Off I trot”

Heartbeat punctuates the spreading of life blood to my veins
Assurance of time is hopeful in mind and in he who ordains!
Thinking to see or perceive the undiscovered, ‘a never had’
Question bearing down, “What’s in store for me, comrade?”

My eye pupils view, unspoken shorthand between eyelid blinks
Split second searches of brain dictionary to ‘iron out the kinks’
Bodily alarms trigger a new suit of armour, “It’s a bit of a scare”
Frightening life lessons again, screaming, “Oh please, not fair!”

Angelic guidance intervened with a blessing of new life’s tools
Today, wisdom up a percentage, pleasure had with ‘life’s fools’
Grateful eyelids are slowly closing on epic adventures had by me
I am hopeful to awake again in life. “So folks, let’s 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!”

Jose & Tess ode

Look at them; I struggle to believe time, Seems like yesterday, all were so young, Together in the fields of Kalia, domesticating was fun, Games that touched our young souls, brightening childhood, Like the birds in the onset of rains,
