red fish, green fish, yellow and blue

how do you know which one’s for you

small fish, big fish, happy and sad

so many fish it will drive you mad

Reposting for valentine’s day…stupid cupid has missed me again this year!


Valentines, Love, Be Mine

Loves arrow flies

straight and true,

a link that joins

me to you.

Blooming red

where arrow lands,

it turns to roses

in your hands.

Your scent lingers

my every breath

so hard to find.

My pounding heart

strong in my chest,

you’re the one

I love best.

Reposting for valentine’s day…love is in the air…


stumbling falling fumbling stalling
racing blushing chasing flushing
peeking glancing seeking chancing
beating fluttering heating stuttering
oh no…i’ve fallen in love.

and gaze without shame

do you notice me

glancing in your direction

have we met before

I feel I know you

better than I know myself

you fascinate me

Where Am I?
