Come in, it's lovely to see you. Pull up a cushion and stay as long as you like.

Woman Walking

Here's a new one for you....

She walked with a confident stride,
her long legs spaced quite far apart with each step,
for a woman I thought.
That's what caught my attention.

I watched from the bus stop across the road
the large shop windows seemed to frame each step,
like those slow motion camera stills we used to see.

She had long legs and was obviously tall
slim legs but not skinny - blue jeans -
and long brown boots that came to just below her knees.

She walked with a confident stride
and there was strength in her legs,
those long legs,
long slim legs ending in long brown leather boots.

I watched her from across the road
as her long legs took her confidently forward
to wherever she was going,
her long slim legs walking,
marching almost,
framed by the shop windows as she passed them.

She walked with a confident stride
carried along by her long legs,
her long slim legs.

There was power in her legs,
her long, slim legs,
and I liked her....

Right then, Happy New year and all that. Lets get blogging. Here's something 'what I wrote' some time ago now but has only just surfaced, making its first appearance at Colchester poetry open mic. Who is Ed? Well, now there's a question. Maybe someone we know or, perhaps there could just be a bit of Ed in all of us? Enjoy..........

Pills in a packet pink and red
drown out the voices in my head                                                                 

I keep a gun beside my bed
sneak in at night and you'll be dead 
Two boys from my school just got wed
one was Derek and one was Fred
Lots of spiders in my shed
long hairy legs fill me with dread
My bruvs a DJ with street cred
we went on holiday to the Med
My car tyre has got no tread
the number plate ends in a zed
A vampires coffin is lined with lead
one bit my neck until it bled 
When it snows I ride my sled 
at night I cuddle my furry Ted 
I like butter on my bread
I like rhymes that end in ed
