Fry me

via Daily Prompt: Fry

Is that a Fry for me , and a fry for you?

There is nothing that gives us such a thrill

As the magic words of a fry, also known as grill.

Whether in a pan, bbq, skittl, deep pot or a heavy base wok

As long as it’s got heaps of fat – hot hot hot.

There is burgers, chips, donuts, fritters, chicken, shaslicks and a kofta or two.

we love a fry morning, night or noon

You can fry in the sun

plenty do this under the guise of fun

Or whilst under the pump

Of course , the sunburn makes you look like a chump.

Eggs can be part of a fry

especially if they have pancakes, maple syrup and bacon as sides.

My mouth waters just hearing anyone say

MMMMM off to FRY me up coupla pineapple fritters and chips today.

Fry for me or a fry for you

thank you lord for life without it would be very blue.

Blindly I fell for it

via Daily Prompt: Blindly

Blindly, I fell for it

yes all of it

The deceit

the lies

the overriding emotional ties.

Blindly like a fool

I actually did believe you

Like the faithful puppy; I chose to ignore

the way we loved one another

and how it made us soar.

Then it all came crashing down

as whispers gathered around town

With undeniable strength the warning signs – I chose to ignore

Now after you were gone

my heart broke;

million pieces onto the floor.

Blindly, naively, gullible like my love for you was oh so strong

But, not realising,  it was the Black Dog that had consumed you; all along.

a shared post.

Someone once said that FEAR is an acronym for False Evidence Appearing Real, and I couldn’t help but think how true this is. Often, we allow fear to consume us. It’s time to say NO to fear. Our role is not to attempt to get rid of fear but to be courageous when we are…

via Daily Prompt: Desire


just stood there

Tall, sturdy muscular lean and chestnut short brown hair

My eyes locked yours

Desire like fire

flamed through my core


Flashed bright yellow,pink, blues, white and green

You were, and still, are the most incredible man I have seen.

Desire melded with unconditional love

Every time we meet

Lightning strikes us from above

It overrode both our senses, from that moment on

Even now that desire, in my heart, still sings its song.

2017 is here….

Well oh well!! Golly Gee and OMGeeeee  🙂

I blinked and it’s now the end of 2 o six teen

January already; where did the last one go?

From the blinding sapping heat to a year of great snow.

From floods in our deserts to never ending coastal rain.

Our year has swooshed by like a Japanese bullet train.

Yes we lost movie, music and iconic greats.

But lets not talk anymore of the ‘Trump’ at your gate.

So from rushing around visiting relatives, friends family galore.

Let’s just stop, take a deep breathe and yell “no more’..

‘No More’ chocolate, ham, turkey,fancy salads or even prawns.

Kickin’ back on the couch with legs a stretched and emitting loud yawns.

So farewell last year, and all those misplaced /trusted fears

Start again on new resolutions and another year.

The following is definitely food for thought:


Retreat is an active word. It’s not a sign of weakness, but a sign that you are in-charge of your reactions. It shows you know when to do something differently. To me, the word RETREAT breaks down into the following powerful actions and helps me to move forward in the direction I need to go…

OMG its christmas again

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house

Yes we could hear that pesky pesky mouse.

Crunching on the lovingly wrapped presents

that had far too much money , on them, spent.

I know it was looking for something great to eat.

But here in Australia all food is kept out of the heat.

IN the fridge, lay chocolates, biscuits, and food stuffs galore.

No way? could that mouse get into and have a quick gnaw.

As I lay restless on my comfy bed

trying to get the work related ache out of my head.

I tried breathing slow, trying sleep

maybe i should try ‘the old trick of counting sheep.

As the clock ticked over and 25 came round

nope nothing about the day was profound.

My heart still missed the loves of my past

I just wished the day would go by fast.

so now with 3 hours to go

thank god i have work tomorrow.

So for those of you who spent the day with family and friends

Appreciate them today for you may never know-  when their life may end.

Yes it is Christmas again in our house.

And yes the trap went snap and got that pesky pesky mouse.
