Mirror Mirror

Mirror, mirror on the wall,
I don’t think you know me at all.
Whilst you reflect the layer you see
Please realise there is more to me.

You cannot hope that frame and skin
Will let you read what lies within.
I’m fire and passion, soul and art,
Untamed spirit, giving heart.

And maybe beauty isn’t mine
(I do not match the term defined)
But flesh alone will not speak for me;
I’m a book, come read my story.

Note To Autumn | Poem

Hello Autumn. You’ve chilled the air,
Slowed the grass, stripped trees bare,
Crisped their leaves, skeletons exposed
And let Jack Frost come bite our toes.
First frost, first snow, hard rain, yet sun!
Experience weather, every one.
Your flame gives way to Winter’s grey;
Thank you Autumn for your display.

Note To Autumn is a rhyming poem about Autumn by Ms Moem.

The Thing About Love…

The thing about love,
though it can’t be seen,
it always leaves a mark
in all the places it has been.

The Love Of A Child | A Poem For Parents

The Love Of A Child - a poem for parents about parenting - by English poet, Ms Moem. Nothing compares to the pure love between parent and child.

The Love Of A Child

They’re not looking for perfection
You’re their parent; their all.
They just want to know they’re loved
And that you’ll come when they call.
They don’t look at you in horror
When you haven’t brushed your hair.
In fact, they don’t care what you look like;
They just love that you are there.
They look to you for answers,
Perhaps a million questions a day
Because you’re their source of wisdom
So it matters what you say.
It’s not about status
Or diamonds and gold.
It’s about genuine smiles
And a warm hand to hold.
And they look to you for kindness;
For unconditional love.
You are mum. You are dad.
You are more than enough!

I Promise

I promise I’ll be there for you with each beat of my heart.
I promise I’ll be there for you in times both bright and dark.
I promise I’ll be there for you when you just want to talk.
I promise I’ll be there for you by your side as we walk.
I promise I’ll be there for you no matter where we are.
I promise I’ll be there for you. I swear it on the stars.
I promise I’ll be there for you, I promise, I am sure.
I promise that I love you and I shall forever more.

54 Days Until Christmas

54 days until Christmas! Yikes!

Where has the year gone?

Best get co-ordinating my Christmas shopping lists and also sort out what crafty projects I will be indulging in.

My youngest daughter has already put her votes in for a wall of snowflakes. I’m quite partial to a bit of papercraft, so that’s a winner.

I also want to make some of my own wrapping paper this year. Well, not make the paper, but buy a roll of Kraft paper / packing paper, and then fancy it up with some bespoke calligraphy.

I also plan to make some Christmas cards for my closest people. It’s something that I used to do with my mum and I think it would be nice to re-visit those feelings. I surely do miss her.

Anyway, before this blog post meanders off into a maudlin direction, I will sign off and get list making!!

Are you planning any Christmas crafts?

Lost | A Poem

Lost - poem by Ms Moem. @msmoem -  Sometimes taking the easy route and letting yourself get swept away can mean you lose sight of where you really wanted to go.

Lost
She set out with intention;
Thought she knew the way to go
But as she wandered clumsily
The winds of change did blow.
They took her like a feather
And she floated on their breeze
Soaring so far above the forest
She could barely see the trees.
At first, she was astounded
Just how far she went each day
But eventually she realised
She’d completely lost her way.

Lost is a short poem by English poet, Ms Moem.
