Hurricane Moments.

A hurricane has hit. 
London is a-fly with leaves and debris.
Congregating are those in fear,
consoling others who might have shed more than tears.
Worldly possessions free me from your hold,
allow my life to rein,
and strength of will and resolve.
Let me view my moments
and memories,
as one would a flash before they choose
the light,
as one might view a fleeting kiss 
wrapped in the emotion of a whirlwind night.

Changing Leaves

It is rather surprising, the speed at which the weather can change. One evening you're walking home from work, the sun is setting and you can still feel the dense humidity as summer air wafts over you, only to awake the following morning, ready to face the day with the force of sunshine on your side, to find a dreary and dull greeting from Mother Nature. Sure, she's given you two months of intense heat and an incredible amount of sunshine, but you're just not ready to face the onslaught of autumn/winter.
And that leaves you morose, until you're surprised by a beautiful sunny and warm day amidst the dull mass of the changing seasons. It is only in London that i have seen the sun create such an energy that sends people's spirits soaring! These rare days are precious and not to be taken lightly. This is the day during which you can do all the things you've dreamed up whilst sitting in a coffee shop, thinking up all the activities you could be doing were it sunny. The parks will be littered with picnic blankets, soccer balls, kites and people. Restaurants will thrive at meal times, especially tea and the cinema won't see anyone set a foot inside until the sun has declared the day a success and given way to the moon.
Perhaps I'm writing about this in the hope that the universe hears my plea, I am aching for a rare and precious day during which I can finally do everything dreamed up for a summer day.
Let's hope it comes soon, that dash of love and sunshine is definitely needed during the times of changing weather.

Now & Then

There was a time when....

Singing the loudest in chior was cool
Your friday night outfit was your most important plan
Getting to school on time was necessary
You couldn't leave the house without your favourite red shoes
Your largest item in your holiday bag was your hair straightener
You had to have the best seat at school
Sitting next to your friends in Assembly was a must
You couldn't think about anything other than passing your drivers
Your Saturday nights consisted of Disney movies & popcorn
Trading stickers at school was 'the shiz'
Marbles made the world go round
You had to know every new song by every cool new artist
Kissing was difficult to fathom
Every party imcluded a game, 'Pass the Parcel'
The game of Cops & Robbers was an afternoon staple
Your school day consisted of blowing ink bubbles for art
It was imperative you didn't get caught during Kissing-Catches
(And a time when you hoped you would)
Getting cooties was the end of the world
Travelling the world became a possibility
You just wanted to watch movies until 4 am
When looking through pictures of your younger years made you cry
You were scared to finish a book, because it would mean the end of a great story
