Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer do
I'm half crazy all for the love of you
It won't be a stylish marriage
I can't afford a carriage
But you'll look sweet upon the seat
Of a bicycle built for two  "


My Mum's favorite song



Resting easy on the river bank, gazing at the fast moving river

ripple and torrent effect, just the way I have been all my life

restless and all action, I could never sit still

always seeking to make the most of my time

for life is so precious, I would never waste a second

just then, a glorious kingfisher came skimming along the water surface

brilliant blue and red plumage, a fisherman unsurpassed in all his glory

I have always been a straight forward guy

who wore his heart on his sleeve

just because I knew it should be there

and let the world see, I care about each and every thing

and in matters of the heart, I have always gave my all

even though it was seldom fully reciprocated

I guess that's just this uneven and unfair world we all live in

or as my Mum would say, how the cookie crumbles

a soft summer wind came rustling through the lime trees

and a rising rainbow trout dappled the glittering waters

as I listened intently to my soul whispering softly to me

you know she said ,I have never let you down

though others have come and gone

and I know that's true , because I'm still drawing God's breath

and have learned from each and every experience

for as each day comes to a close, I know I've given it my best shot

I inhale the invigorating scent of the sweet flowering currant

and recite my prayers that give me indomitable courage

my eyes take in, the full and expansive circumference

of whats awaiting me wherever I go

and for sure I keep my promises to all those that I love

my word is my bond, and I will never step back from that obligation

and as the sun slants across that golden horizon

you can be sure of one thing, and another for by

I will never give up, till every teardrop has been dried

What a way to laze away the day and your poem says it all. I like your poetry but it will take me a while to read all of them. I chose the ones appealing to me by title today and you filled up some of my lost and lonely time.

Hi Peter:

What a wonderful soulful write this is! I love the sentimental thoughts that is in the poem. They're most inspiring.

I love that new grown-up picture in your BIO! You still look the same as you were in your baby photo.

I just happened to be listening to a song when I read this today...not necessarily the right song for this poem...but sentiments that reaffirm your thoughts,experience and pledge, I believe. Keith Urban sings, "I'll be a man of my word...speak a language in a voice that you have never heard." Life is so precious to you and your energy comes from a radiant source, I believe you do "want to make this world better than it's ever been" new horizons, give it your best, and dry all the tears, and delight in knowing that the crumbs taste just as good as the cookie.

Ah Peter, how very beautiful and poignant this is. I loved this so much, beautiful and deeply touching poetry.

A man's words (or a woman's) is only as good as the heart they come out of. We either make our word/world good, or we make our word/world waste. Time is the great revelator.

Fight the good fight Peter. Follow after those things that are good and good WILL COME to YOU. :) Good day braveheart.

"always seeking to make the most of my time" is certainly a line that I wholeheartedly agree with. I work seven days a week. I can't even sleep in late because I am compelled to redeem the time and accomplish something.

My wife says I'm a workaholic - I tell her that I'm operating under the unction of a God given vision.

She says: "Honey, I'll bring you an iced tea."

Giving freely of the abundance of what we are given without any expectation of anything in return, takes a lot of spiritual wisdom, and a lot of mental and emotional discipline.

Most I have met don't have a clue about this!

There is a promise in scripture about all the tears of suffering ending. I like that promise a lot!

(((((((Peter ))))))

God, this sings the ever so deeply precious anointing of salvation, renewal, drive, inspiration, courage, resurrection and forever insight onto the soul.. I see you are flying high today, the way you should be. When we open our souls to the greatness that awaits, all we have to do is live it by claiming it!!!!!!! It sounds as if everything’s coming finally in order, in it’s beautiful place and the time now is to take the beautiful gifts promised from up above grace and mercy.. I celebrate your walk towards new. a powerful new YOU! I leave you with a wondrous passage about how God redeemed Joseph out of the yoke of slavery to POSTION him for chief Pharaoh..... God can do this with any soul He chooses favor simply because He chooses and He chose it with Joseph because of his gifts of prophesy unto NATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Joseph had been in slavery and yokes of bondage’s but God said, I can lift my servant out of their graves of slavery and abuse into the yoke of blessing and leadership because in a slit second, God favors the chosen……. So Pharaoh said to Joseph, "I hereby put you in charge of the whole land of Egypt." 42 Then Pharaoh took his signet ring from his finger and put it on Joseph's finger. He dressed him in robes of fine linen and put a gold chain around his neck. 43 He had him ride in a chariot as his second-in-command, [c] and men shouted before him, "Make way [d] !" Thus he put him in charge of the whole land of Egypt.
44 Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, "I am Pharaoh, but without your word no one will lift hand or foot in all Egypt." 45 Pharaoh gave Joseph the name Zaphenath-Paneah and gave him Asenath daughter of Potiphera, priest of On, [e] to be his wife. And Joseph went throughout the land of Egypt.
46 Joseph was thirty years old when he entered the service of Pharaoh king of Egypt. And Joseph went out from Pharaoh's presence and traveled throughout Egypt. 47 During the seven years of abundance the land produced plentifully. 48 Joseph collected all the food produced in those seven years of abundance in Egypt and stored it in the cities. In each city he put the food grown in the fields surrounding it. 49 Joseph stored up huge quantities of grain, like the sand of the sea; it was so much that he stopped keeping records because it was beyond measure….
