A Hot Summer Night

 

 

Feeling awake, too hot to sleep

As I turn out the light

Darkness comes as if to creep

Into a hot summer night

 

My eyes feel hard to close

As I lie on my bed

I am dreamy, I suppose

Light and airy is my head

 

Tossing, turning, trying to slumber

I’m half awake, tired and restless

I count sheep by the number

To ease away the stress

 

Cats outside are looking for prey

Tonight, the humidity is steep

Now and then, I often say

When can I rest, when can I sleep?

 

Sleeping away does not feel right

In this hot summer night

Someday

 

Someday soon she will return

Our love will never die

Someday soon they will learn

A true heart will never lie

 

Someday I'll be at her side

And stay at her side forever

Someday she will be my bride

And we will live together

 

Though you and I are far apart

Please do not fret nor fear

I love you with all my heart

I'll love you always, my dear

 

Someday soon we will meet each other

Someday soon we will be together

Photography-Related Bio


My first venture into photography occurred in the early 1980’s when I bought my first camera, a 35mm Fuji camera.  I began by taking photographs of mainly nature and landscapes but also the architecture in Reading UK. 

            By the time I moved into my own Council accommodation, I bought my first personal digital Olympus Camera.  I continued to photograph nature and landscapes, and rapidly reduced taking shots of architecture.

            I have recently gained a Diploma in Photography with the IOP (Institute of Photography).  I now use an Olympus OM-D camera.  I still photograph nature and landscapes, although now I have expanded my interests to include Cities, Still Life, and Monuments.

The Lagoon

 

 

By the light of the silvery moon

Where we often meet

You look so kind and sweet

At nights at the lagoon

 

Sailing boats are at rest

The moon is all aglow

I am certain, and I know

That your love is the best

 

By the light of the silvery moon

We kiss each other tenderly

We caress each other eagerly

At nights spent on the lagoon

 

We will marry someday soon

Until then our romance

Keeps me in a trance

At nights at the lagoon

A Mirage

 

 

 

Love tastes sweeter than nectar

But like a bee with a sting

It can make you feel bitter

With the pain it can bring

 

Love is like a sweet song

The words seem so enchanting

But reality is so daunting

When love goes all wrong

 

Love seems so alluring

But it is just a delusion

It can be so dull, so boring

Love is like an illusion

 

Oh, take me away from its visage

Love is no more than a mirage

Thinking of You

 

 

Every night I lie awake

In thoughts of love so true

I do not even try to shake

Away, the thoughts of you

 

In offices, shops and restaurants

I’m thinking only of you

Your voice, your image haunts

My mind. I’m lost without you

 

All the world is a stage

We played our part

As I turn life’s page

You stay in my heart

 

Each day may be brand new

I’m thinking only of you

Hold On

 

 

Failure is laced with good intentions

No matter where you are

Pursuing your goal takes you far

Hold on to your dreams, your ambitions

 

When a dream is created

Don't wish upon a star

Get going, no matter how far

Don't stop, don't be frustrated

 

When you have an ambition

Make it a strong desire

Don't let it fade, or tire

Make success your mission

 

Defeat is laced with self-pity

Success is made of sterner things

Think of what perseverance brings

Let being ambitious be your duty

 

So, lend me all your attentions

Hold on to all your ambitions
