Beach Life

I work to pay the bills, and more
At home, I’m busy doing chores
Serenity seems out of reach
I need a life down at the beach!

Where I can live on “island time”
Play or rest – the choice all mine
Where I can relax, clear my head
With a palm tree overhead.

Sand underfoot, wind in my hair
Never a worry, never a care
Swim, surf, splash all day
The perfect life, I would say!

New Year’s Resolutions 2019

So many resolutions
Which should I choose?
Drink far more water
But much less booze?

Eat plenty of vegies
And less junk food?
Reduce stress levels
To improve my mood?

Cut down on waste
To be more “green”?
Re-do the garden
Keep the house clean?

Do more exercise
To work on my health?
Cut down on spending
To work on my wealth?

Be more organised
To get “stuff” done
Hang on a minute…
These are no fun!!

Oh, those resolutions
Are making me queasy
Perhaps I’ll resolve
To take this year easy

To spend more time
Relaxing by the beach
Now there’s a life goal
I’ll be happy to reach!

Christmas Cards

The Christmas cards in the shops
Have scenes of ice and snow
But, they all seem out of place
For it’s summer here, you know.

Show me cards with beach scenes
With sand (and barbecues)
Santa in T-shirt and shorts
Those are the cards I’ll choose!

A warm Christmas Eve this year. (93’F)
