Cougar NOT Cougar

To be a cougar you have to know

what one is, although

maybe you don’t, it’s in the flow

to not be a cougar can lead to strife

Young men wanting you to try the life

propositioning older women,  seems rife


Are they wanting  the good that experience brings

or, just sex with no restricting  strings

they Offer themselves as a sex machine

think it must  the older woman’s dream

to be a cougar you must be on the prowl

if not a cougar

do we become prey, when the young buck howls?

Love songs and poems

Listening to the love songs

reading the poetry books

love should be out there

 can’t be overlooked


take my breath away

love at first sight

these are the prizes

if the authors are right


looked around the corners

 under the seats

in my life, that sort of love

seems to have me beat


take a deep breath, what do I smell

old socks , damp washing on the line

where are the  roses or jasmine 

romantic and fine


I think I have

had the sparks and the flashes

but not the full thunderstorm

or arel those songs and poems

so far from the norm



Is companionship and friendship

a more sustainable refrain

am I searching for unicorns

pots of gold, bubbles in champagne


I want to taste the sweetness 

of honey on my tongue

yes still I am searching

for a cliched romantic world of my own


Then I look up as a shadow drains the light

you walk into the house smiling

perhaps my shining knight

am I wasting my life on improbable profiling



Is my love with me

but my mind doesn’t see?

I am confused, who can help me?

Thrive

World expanding ,hovering somewhere near the sun

Reviewing hopes and fantasies, nearly come undone

Exponential, Epoch, Elevate and Energised

Willing, Wit, Wisdom try to be Wise

Fulfillment, Functioning, Feelings helps life flow

Growing, Gentle, Gratitude learning how to glow

Turning self belief into a better way to live

Changing my perspective learning how to thrive. 

Song of Strings

Song of the Strings


The skill, truly an art form

a sophistication

as the halls are filled

with musicians 

bows  drawn

to flow smoothly

against the strings


each section adds their voices

a swell of sound that 

climbs and resonates

notes and chords lead and twirl

as the musicians follow

the Maestro’s directions

to create total harmony

as they show pure heart

passion and joy


music to uplift, sooth or arouse the soul

will the world swoon in approbation

or will only some take time 

to listen and enjoy the sounds

made on instuments of wood and gut

Fantasy and reality

Fantasy and reality side by side grow

boundaries blur where is the plateau?

starkness of words translated into pictures

 holes in the substance, filled in, no glitches


Subconscious embellishment start a glow

bad habits, never witnessed, don’t spoil the show

endearments uttered are stored in memories box

 intense and  important, they become a paradox


She needs her emotions stirred, to feel a connection

his drivers very different, need inspection

married to other’s, they met playing a game

chatting and sharing life in a cyber domain


She’s desperate for love, her happiness compromised 

she grabs  affection and excitement, it makes her blind

he looks for  flirtation, moves through lusts revolving door

 enjoys the immediate journey, never requiring more


Intimacy inevitably grows with the sharing

 Could be great, if their perspectives were pairing

she loves that he calls her by that special name

unaware he calls, all other girls the same


He is wrapped up and interested, its no ploy

but soon he will be bored and move  to another  toy

her one in a million man will gradually pull away

Leaving her devastated  and crying at close of day

Just to say

William Carlos Williams an imagist poet wrote with great brevity and wrote a poem in note form called Just to Say .

I have attempted a poem in the same style
I asked you and you said

No you didn’t want one

Have been dropping hints 

About the benefits
I know we haven’t had 

a detailed discussion

I worry that hot water

bottles will burst
So I just want to say

I have ordered one

An electric blanket which

I hope will make us both
More comfortable
