Poetry: Four Seasons

Post bumped up to share with with Poetry Pantry  Originally posted 16/9/2008

Autumn leaves changing

The past falls away
Preparing for the winter
The darkening of the days

Winter now consumes me
I take myself to bed
Hide under the blankets
Shake the monster from my head

Spring is now upon us
A change is in the air
Basking in the sunshine
I hardly have a care

Summer rain cooling
Reminds of change to come
Darkness will fade away
The battle has been won

Life Goes On

A week after the devastating terror attacks, I've been trying to stay busy. 

A year after my detached retina surgery and all went well at the optometrist. Eye is still looking healthy, no cataract as yet and I'm getting new glasses in a couple of weeks. 

My eye a year ago 

Earlier in the week, I was featured on Poets United website. 

I'll leave you with an evening SkyWatch

Remember to tell the people you love how much they mean to you as often as possible. You never know when the last time you see them will be. 

See you next week

One of New Zealand's Darkest Days

My heart goes out to the victims and families of this vicious attack. Whitesnake and I are safe but still in shock as nothing like this has ever happened here before. One of the great things I always loved about NZ was that I believed it was a safe place to live, I guess things won't be the same now.

An update from our Prime Minister

New Zealand's darkest day
Yet I have nothing to say
Anger trapped inside
Emotions I try to hide

Numerous countries I have roamed
But New Zealand, she's my home
Her freedom and her safety
You will never take from me!

My poem has been shared with Poetry Pantry

Thank you all for the love and support you have sent  New Zealand during this devastating time.

Introducing Sideshow Bob

Hi all,

Recently I was reading an interesting blog, (unfortunately I can't remember which blogger to thank), showing pictures of beautiful indoor plants. This reminded me that purchasing an indoor plant was on my to-do-list so whoever you are, thank you.

Whitesnake and I decided on a Maidenhair Fern as I'd managed to raise one to a decent age previously, (usually my houseplants die a miserable death). Anyway, we took him home and re potted him ( my houseplants are always male) and sat him in the corner.

Later in the evening, my hubby began chuckling to himself and asked if the plant reminded me of anyone.... now his name is Bob. He's named after Sideshow Bob from The Simpsons. Can you see the resemblance or have we finally lost the plot?

Have a great week

Love KB, Whitesnake and Bob

Another Beautiful Day In South Auckland

 I'm loving the weather this week; sunshine but not too hot. It's also been an expensive week as Whitesnake needed a trip to the dentist. That's all from me today, have a great weekend and I'll see you next week.
