They Ring In The Air

They ring in the air
With the passing breeze

Stories are told
With consumate ease

Casting the mind back
To days before

Memories fast
Come to the fore

They gently persuade
And settle your mood

Bringing you back
To the present

Leaving your mind
Effervescent!

Light, Glorious Light!

Light, glorious light
Streams from above

Wrapping itself around us
Fitting us like a glove…

Lifting our Spirits
Brightening our day

Renewing our Souls
In every way…

Light gives us shadow
To give us contrast

From within the darkness
Gladness unsurpassed

Shadow that cools
In oppressive heat

On a hot day
They are hard to beat

Light and shadow
Glad for your presence

Lighting up our lives
An enduring essence!

Streams Of Life

It was as if it was only yesterday
The streams of life ran smooth

The paths that have been travelled
Have left many dreams unfurled

Daily search for answers
Keeps the mind alert

Sometimes on this journey
You can tend to overwork

Then the seeds of gratefulness
Do surely reappear

The mind turns and says good sir
What have you to fear?

Keep moving along the path you tread
The key is to keep aware

Opportunities will come and go
They will come from everywhere

Imagination can be used so well
With it you’ll defeat that worry

Keep the peace you must do
Why are you in such a hurry?

Patience is a virtue so true
Hold on through that strife

To those dreams that keep us going
That give us such a great life!

Through The Mists Of Time…

20140926-IMG_5701-1

Through the mists of time
A window to the past

Mining days are gone
They were never going to last

The Scots they came
To mine the Shale

In their tracks
A ghostly pale

A town once thriving
Sits here idle

Echoes of life
Once so vital

Now the light filters in
Remnants are here

The people are gone
No-one left to cheer

Solid memories remain
A few visitors can view

Solitude replaces
And the land renews…

Rough Ride!

With steely face
They enter the race

Determination shows…

Mounting the charge
The bull so large

Ready for any blows…

Gates burst open
Crowd so vocal

Danger omnipresent…

Eight seconds needed
Strength almost exceeded

Cowboy ascendant…

Pressure is mounting
Time is counting

Victory is here…

Completing the ride
Fists raised with pride

Give him a big cheer!

The Stockmen

It’s been an awesome day
The Stockmen they do say
As they rope in the last
Of the herd

They’ve been up since Dawn
Some look forlorn
As they settle back
To be heard

Stories get told
They’re ever so bold
As the campfire glows
Into the night

Sleep catches on
As the night wears on
Morning will come
With first light

And the Stockmen will rise
For they will reprise
The role for which
They were born

To drive their cattle
Via valleys unshackled
To their destination
The following morn..

Voyage…

Clouds sing their song
As the water descends

Falling so quietly
Landing not the end

Grasping onto form
Settling onto ground

It stops and thinks
And starts to look around

It struggles at first
Then picks up speed

Joining the crowd
Feeling much relieved

Down a slope
It starts to meander

Enjoying all
The lively banter

Onward it travels
Sensing it is near

That raging river
The way is so clear

Stretching out
Going for broke

It joins the river
And meets it’s kinfolk!

Spark in the eye
Begins it

We all see it
But don’t all feel it

That magic moment
It comes

A new life
Breathes…

The Tapestry
Of Life continues

For some
Not possible

For most
Enjoyable

All share
In the joy

Quest of life
We live it

Passing of time
We see it…

Old age
Brings wisdom…

Watching
new beginnings

Fading from view
We diminish…

Spark in the eye
Begins it

That magic moment
It comes

A new life
Breathes…

We…

Words on a page
Spoken by a sage
We listen…

Instructions for life
Navigate the strife
We begin…

Plan into action
Aim to gain traction
We pursue…

Obstacles occur
Plans alter
We muse…

Think things through
Moments of truth
We stand…

Strength prevails
Wind in our sails
We strive…

Goals are the driver
Energy helps conquer
We progress…

Dream is achieved
Mind is relieved
We celebrate!

Only A Moment’s Notice!

It takes only a moments notice
For me to drift away
From this place of overload
My imagination is at play

I wander here I wander there
Both near to me and far
Sometimes to the Country
I don’t even need a car

My imagination takes me
To where I want go…
To the limestone cliffs of Dover
Or the canyons of Colorado

It’s such a relaxing feeling
Drawing on this source
It helps me keep stress at bay
As I continue on my course!

Fleeting Moments…

Fleeting moments
They drift by
Like wispy clouds
In the sky

Present becomes past
In an instant
Our life goes on
Further distanced

Each passing thought
Takes us further
Along the road
Increasing fervour

Challenges come
And they go
Strength increases
Determined flow

Keep the dream
At front of mind
Enjoy the journey
Future defined

Stories On Your Shelf

They sit and wait
So quietly
For a passerby
To stop

Stories rich and wondrous
Certainly the pick of the crop

Each of them
Are patient
For they know
It won’t be long

A Human will surely stumble by
And help them to belong

At last
A hand reaches out
Pick me, pick me
They say

I’ve been longing for you to stop
As I want to change your day

Now the book
is happy
In comforting hands
they nestle

Rest assured the book will help
The Human to be settled

In time
The book will finish
And be placed
Upon the shelf

Awaiting that future day
When another one needs help

So think
Of your bookshelf
As you
Travel your Earthly course

Visit your books often
They are a priceless resource!

‘You can tell a lot about a person from the books they have in their bookshelf…” A phrase that I have heard many,many times over the years…

These days (with the advent of books available via download) perhaps it is not used as often.

Then there are people who say they ‘don’t read books…’ I’m sad for them because they are missing out on so much!

Back to the initial phrase, though. A quick look at our bookshelves indicates the following topics:

- Art Theory & History, Oil, Acrylic, Watercolour painting, Drawing, Sketching; Calligraphy
– Photography Theory & History, Individual Photographers, Miscellaneous subjects, Cameras    
   (about 150 books on those aforementioned topics alone)
– Science-Fiction
– Poetry & Verse
– Assorted Novels e.g. Classics, General, Mysteries; Short Stories; Fantasy; Sci-Fi
– Movies
– Fishing
– Books about Books & Reading (yes, seriously)!
– Astronomy
– Music
– General Reference
– Self-Help (needed plenty of that over the years)
– Motivation
– Business
– Management
– Leadership
– Public Speaking
– Communication
– Religion
– Philosophy
– Networking
– Relationships
– Cacti & Succulents and Plants/Gardens etc.

I wonder what the casual observer would make of all that!?

Chimes

The gentle sounds
They bring forth so true

Take my mind back
To begin anew

They ring in my mind
And in my Heart

Prompting myself
To make a new start

The wind is the player
An instrument so tame

Moving to the tune
Of a different name

As I sit and relax
I am at peace

The chimes are making
Me feel so at ease…

Cherished moments
Each new day brings
Causing our Hearts
To leap and sing

Moments that come
Moments that go
In our daily lives
As we go to and fro

In time and space
Enjoyment of each other
Helps us through
This world of bother

Each day we live
Sharing with all
Living in the moment
Standing tall

Take time to reflect
On such a precious gift
Time on this Earth
Goes oh so swift

Cherished moments
Each new day brings
Causing our Hearts
To leap and sing

I Think Of Times…

I think of times
Not long ago
When a cool breeze
Would set my Mind aflow

Aflow with thoughts
That would relax my being
An experience that was
Indeed most freeing

Freeing the Spirit
Helping me through
Another day gone
Exacting the truth

Truth be told
Planning for the future
Living in the moment
Doing my utmost to secure

Secure in the thought
Holding onto my dreams
Working the plan
Just need to believe

Fire In The Sky!

Burning in the distance
A ball lights up the sky

The fire slowly stirring
So pleasing to the eye

Reaching out from within
Light protrudes and settles

Upon the clouds so soft
The light it does so nestle

Sinking slowly in the West
One does not need to imagine

The beauty, the colour and form
Of Mother Nature’s passion!

A Winter’s Day

A Winter’s day
Just sitting in the Sun
Reading a book
Having some fun!

Listening to the sounds
That are about
A certain symphony
Without doubt

The cool breeze
Across my being
So subtle and yet
With much feeling

The smell of cut grass
And the fragrant bloom
Hangs in the air
Like a pleasant perfume

The mind it speaks
In subconscious tones
Giving life to the senses
With no overtones

Imagination, It Flows…

Imagination, it flows
Just like a country stream
It weaves and wanders all about
Always gathering steam

It seeks out stories
Thoughts and dreams
And asks you
To believe

The story that unfolds
Believe it you certainly must
And take it on board
With utmost silent trust

It glides and clears
Mental blocks along the way
Leaving a sense of peace
In no uncertain way

Imagination, it flows
Just like a country stream
It weaves and wanders all about
Always gathering steam…

Walking The Path

Walking the path of many
Involves little thought
you might say

That is until
Of course
You walk the other way

Life has many a
twist and turn
A way of living that is earnt

How easy it is
On some occasions
To forget what things we’ve learnt

Life teaches us
over and over
Until we stop to listen

When we stop, and start
To learn
Our life begins to glisten

It’s never too late
To start again
Toward that new adventure

Solve a problem
Taking charge
Saddle up for that new venture

Stay the distance
Stay the course
At your own insistence

You’ll reap the rewards
And taste the sweetness
As you dig in, this very instance!

Snow Play

I cast my eyes
Upon the gentle slope
Filled with snow so white

The skiers flow
Down the way
A trail they begin to write

The clear blue sky
The Sun so bright
Illuminates the day

So much fun
As they show their skill
Investing time they play

Gliding through
A scene so clear
Memories built to last

See them here
See them there
Watch them as they go past!

As an Artist, you must continue to feed your mind, ask questions of the world and ponder. Your Art is your attempt to answer those questions and in doing so you can add your flavour to society.

So how do you feed your mind?

You can do this via:

* Reading books and other literature
* Attending Exhibitions (not just the Art you like either)
* Watching movies, documentaries and other media
* Attending lectures and presentations
* Getting together with your peers or Artists outside your realm
* Attending workshops
* Spending time contemplating about your style, about your world

You should attend exhibitions, read books etc that are outside your realm of interest. This has the effect of stretching your world-view and opens your mind to other possibilities. Your feelings about this may reveal to you a new way of seeing ‘the old’ which then will translate into your Art.

Why do all this?

You are a product of your environment. You have been subjected to different influences (chosen or otherwise). You have beliefs and your own thoughts.

Like any endeavour, you will want to grow and evolve, communicate through expressions of your Art.

The world wants to see what and how you feel about things. We want to see your flavour, a flavour that can help grow the world into news ways of appreciation and seeing.

The world is waiting…

Light seeps through
The crack in the wall
Tentacles reach
Not one but all

The message is filtered
For each individual
Each has their own
Singular symbol

Allowing the light
To touch us within
Gives us the clarity
To just begin

Begin we must
To charter our course
And steer the journey
Using our mental force

We know what we must do
The path we must take
To pursue our dreams
And seek our fate

Light seeps through
That crack in the wall
Work hard for your dream
And give it your all!

Each one enters our doors anew
The goal to improve their worldly view

Listening, watching and practicing,
Mentoring, focusing and graduating

Growth in character and respect
Extolling that positive, supportive environment

Demonstrate we must
And place in others our trust

Confidence rises buoyantly
As we go along our journey

Leading and speaking
A journey never ceasing.

(I wrote the poem specifically for the Agenda for my Campbelltown Toastmasters Club
Changeover Dinner which was held on 18 June 2014. I am the Outgoing President).

Time Wisely

In searching for solitude
We sometimes find

A new way of thinking
A new use for time

We search and we search
Till the way comes clear

We thought we were so far
Yet we are so near

So use your mind wisely
Think and be sure

Spend your time well
And become a connoisseur!

Wistful thoughts
Come and go
As I sit here
Mind goes to and fro

Of days that are past
And didn’t last
Of future times
Not setfast

Thoughts of things
That I do regret
Other things
I want to forget

Midway journey
I am here
Living my life
Searching far and near

Many plans afoot
Reaching high
Challenges appear
Incredible sigh

Working through
Changing tack
The road ahead
Appears off track

Dance and move
Think on the feet
Imagination helps
No time to retreat

Ideas come
Each day to me
Work them well
Become free

The title sounds like a good title for a poem. Perhaps one day I will use it as that.

For today however, it refers to two interests I have, one is Photography, the other Toastmasters.

Photography started as an interest for me in the early 1980’s and the obsession continues to this day. Toastmasters, I joined in 2008 and it has given me so much (and continues to do so), including the confidence to open up my photography business, a general confidence and being able to relate to people a lot better.

For the past 6 years the pendulum has swung heavily toward Toastmasters, especially in the 4 years I was on the Executive, culminating in being President this past year. The past two years have been quite intense as the Vice-President Education role and President carry the most responsibility (i.e. the top two positions). I also did the Youth Leadership Co-ordinator role last year.

Come 1 July 2014 I will be ‘Immediate Past President’ and am not looking to take on any Committee roles in any organisation for the next few years, having been on committees for most of the past 26 years. A break is overdue…

My photography business carries on regardless of what I do, however personal photographic projects had given way to Toastmasters in the past 6 years. I will always photograph just like I always will be a Toastmaster. Toastmasters however will slide into the background a bit more and become another tool I utilise and practice at in my goal to become a better communicator and along the way I can help others too.

Over recent months I’ve been getting more and more ideas for photographic/Art projects and attending the recent Head On South Photographic Festival has spurred me on even more!

I can feel the Pendulum starting to swing back already.

Surrounded By Knowledge

Surrounded by knowledge
I sit in my room
Which book to select
So I can consume

Words come to life
Like water from a spring
Into our lives
So everlasting

Knowledge is power
So it is said
Without some action
There’s no road ahead

Books are a lifeblood
A treasure to behold
Enact that knowledge
And go break that mould!

Quiet moments
Toughest times
Epic battles
Anxiety climbs

Search for answers
Sometimes fruitful
One’s own mind
Giving you an earful

Fears that grow
Etched in silence
Furrowed brow

Troubled Soul
Needs a guide
Faith begins
Deep inside

Battle fought
From within
Positive signs
Now begin

The Glow

The glow of the fire
Is the heartbeat of the room.
It dances and flickers
To its own tune.

It draws us in deeply
A tale yet awaits.
Of our own making
The coldness abates

The Yellow, the Orange
Leaps to a great height
Writing the path
Lighting up the night

Our Spirit is lifted
Heart skips a beat
Nourished and fed
The Soul is complete

A Quiet Moment Taken…

A quiet moment taken
Sitting in the Sun
Autumn leaves descending
Birds are having fun

Chirping as they do
In the trees where they reside
Singing a sweet song
Soothing the busy mind

Thinking as we do
Throughout our working day
Needing a calming influence
To get us on our way

Forging that path ahead
A gentle breeze rings true
As we gaze into the sky
Into the sea of blue

Change

Change for the good
Change for the better
Riding through stormy weather

Taking stock
Clear the head
Call to action instead of said

Some things that served me
In the past
Seemingly are, not going to last

The future is bright
The future is clear
Wheels in motion, starting to steer

Journey continues
It doesn’t stop here
Look at me now, I’m starting to cheer!

Turn turn
Autumn has arrived

Turn turn

See the Yellow, the Orange and the Red

Soon the leaves

Branches are bare
Desolate stare

They await the first Pinks of Spring.

Blossoms abound
Bees come around

Fragrances bloom
Summer looms

To heat the Earth
And enjoy the mirth.

Underneath The Surface

Underneath the surface
So calm and so cool

Colours are wondrous
Shape and form rule

Light from the surface
Fills up the void

Works it’s own magic

Brushing past lifeforms
So ecstatic

A wondrous World
Beneath us exists

Shining from within
So hard to resist!

A tortured Soul
Drifts along…
All they want
Is to belong

Belong and live
Amongst the World
Shattered existence
Mind unfurled

Searching for answers
Within the gloom
Waiting for a chance
To end the doom

The answer is within
As it’s always been
Uncovering the layers
Is the dream

Layer by layer
Determination wins
It’s now or never
The fight begins

Never giving up
Is the key
Victory the goal
Just believe

Life In Light

Colours, they shine from up above
Rays of Sun permeate the room
Kneeling quietly in silence we find love
Light and prayer raise us from the gloom

Keeping still and breathing anew
Our mind and thoughts, they drift along
We gaze upon the colours true
Just wanting to belong

As we continue our stillness
We allow the Spirit in
To go forth in forgiveness
Which starts from within

In the moment we seek assistance
Looking for and finding ways to cope
Staying always true to self
Never giving up hope

The light it shines from up above
Warming our hearts, strengthening our minds
From the light we find love
From within we choose to shine

Baggage

The baggage we take
Comes along for the ride

It comes in all sizes
We take in it’s stride

Within the journey
Much on the mind

If we don’t let it go
It becomes rather unkind

It takes on many forms
That much is true

Losing that baggage
Will loosen the screws

A clear head
Is what we are all after

So throw that baggage out
And we can all celebrate with laughter!

Just like the sweetest Champagne!

Ripples Of Iron

Ripples of iron
Shine so bright
Wilting underneath
The available light

Contrasting elements
Attract one’s attention
Mesmerising thoughts
Human invention

They tell their stories
Etched with history
That is kept alive
Containing some mystery

Gazing into the past
Looking for answers
We sit and ponder
Awaiting their next chapters…

Journey To…

Settled back and relaxed
The journey had begun

No rushing, no fussing
Time to have fun

Good book as my friend
My Spirit so settled

First pages are turned
Imagination begins to wrestle

The rain it is falling
So steady and so fine

It reminds me so well
Of a vibrant Summer wine

Delving through the pages
A story so good

Has me entranced
Like I knew it would

The clickety-clack
of the rail track

Creates a melody so fine
Feel like taking a nap

The journey is soon over
Far quicker than expected

Can’t wait to do it again
As I am I now quite rested!

Deep Within Our Lives

Deep within our lives
Lie both shadows and light

Amongst the glare
And the dark of night

Sometimes clear
Other times blurred

Seldom silent
Often stirred

Searching the depths
We lay in wait

Shimmering light
Oh so bright

We wait and wait
Till the shadows abate…

Saturday afternoon
Church bells ring

Bringing wedded bliss
Queen with her King

Golden rays of sunlight
Stream across the way

Love continues to blossom
Right throughout the day

Memories are captured
Glorious settings abound

A new life starts
Love, oh so profound

Pushing Forward. Pushing Free.

Raging across the plain
Mountains in the distance
Forward is bleak
This very instance

The wind it scowls
Swirling dust in its wake
Pushing forward
Physically ache

The going is fierce
Dig right in
Up for the fight
Don’t give in

Thinking ahead
Stretching yourself
Energy renewed
With some help

Bursting forward
Time on your side
Winning in time
Thought as your guide

Savour the spoils
Drink to the victory
Share the good fortune
Be bold and push free!

Settling our Spirit’s
Renewing our Hearts

Refreshed we become

Aiding us through
Completing our projects
To start anew

Fresh ideas come
In rivers and floods

Where are you currently in Life?

Are you comfortable? Are you stretching yourself?

At nearly 51 years of age, I look back at my life and think about all the times that I was ‘comfortable’ and then think of sudden changes that made me uncomfortable (they were usually changes I had no control over).

Like many people I think, I feared or was scared of something changing in my life.We like to get comfortable and stay comfortable, with what we know.

Being the ultra-shy person I was in my first 25-30 years I have to say that I did not cope with change well.

What ignited a bit of daring in me was joining a Church Social group as I began to meet new people and in the space of a couple of years I tried Snow-skiing; Grass-Skiing; Roller-Skating; Ice-Skating; Go-Karting to name a few.

Joining other organisations (see bio) over the years helped me gain confidence and helped me in meeting new people, and volunteering for committees gave me the opportunity to give back to the community and personally, it has given me all sorts of benefits.

Joining, committing to the programme & getting involved in leadership in Toastmasters International in March 2008 has helped tremendously.

I now look for ways to ‘get myself out of my comfort zone’ in all different areas of life, photography, public speaking, other art forms, work.

I didn’t realise in my earlier life that being placed in, or volunteering to put myself in uncomfortable situations was going to help me grow as a person. Back then I saw it as a negative. Being uncomfortable I thought was a bad thing. Now I think of it as a positive.

I seem now to be making up for lost time… :)

Weeds

Weeds creep up
And wind their way
Toward the shattered sky

Silence ebbs
As light escapes
In twisted forms that scare

An eerie gloom
Spreads o’er the land
Shadows cast that grow

The rain it comes
Confronting us so
We must withstand its force

The wind it blows
With increasing strength
And buffeted though we are

As thunder
Rings around the sky
Patience must shine through

We must rise
Against the darkness
Victory is our goal!

Long Summer Days Ago…

Long Summer days ago
I hear the guitars a strummin’
Smoke On The Water rising
Along with the drummin’

The students were learning
A new song with interest
Playing and playing
With a passion so earnest

Sunny days in the playground
With a Deep Purple theme
Memories come fast
Was it but a dream?

A dream it was not
For I hear the music now
Etched in my memory
My thoughts are in tow

Long Summer days ago
Smoke On The Water rising
A long distant memory
Not fantasising!
