|03:00 pm - GLRocker|
GLRocker, stands for Golden little rocker!!!
I love rock 'n' roll music, I guess being a baby boomer helps!!
the old stuff, the 50s, 60s, even oh dear -some 70s!!! disco!!!
at least then you could sing along to the words!!
some of those golden rockers still survive today,
amazing, how the old songs stand the test of time....
as the saying goes there aint no age for rock 'n' roll!!
Im a golden rocker, with a few silver threads of wisdom!!
remember when there was only vinyl records?
the old 33rpms, 45rpms, how the more they were played,
the more they wore out!! oh yes, those were the days..
before compact discs, ipods, mp3s, even mobiles,
or the internet!!! how times change....
although, as I reflect, on the times past,
even the fashions of those times are still recycled!!
the question remains, better now or way back when?

|01:58 pm - fragrances|
Fragrances, tell a story, they create memories,
& reach into our very being,
the scent of a flower, a freesia,
a rose, or even the aroma of your favourite food,
the freshness of rain, a new day,
spring the season of new life,
even the ocean has a special fragrance all of its own,
yes fragrances, are a special touch in our lives,
a wonderful creation a refreshment, a renewal,
a hope of something to come,
fragrances are many things,
to everyone, what are fragrances to you?

|02:31 pm - Vickis Hope...|
Dreams and aspirations,
Having an anchor point that is strong and faithful,
Its the sunrise through your window,
The first cuppa in the morning,
Enjoying the first sip,
Putting your best foot forward,
Enjoying the fragrances of life,
Hope is a four letter word,
With infinite meanings to infinite people,
Its waiting for a letter or a phone call, but most of all...
Hope is something that can't be seen,
But its something inside of you,
Its eternal, an anchor, a rock.

an apple a day,

|12:50 pm - Visions|
In our lives,
we see rain fall on our window,
we walk many paths,
we experience dreams & visions,
we have a carpet of colour before us,
the sun shining all around us,
our stories waiting to be
woven into the rich tapestry
of lifes journey
the footprints of our hopes
are imprinted on golden sands,
as we reflect on the laced capped breakers,
the cool breeze wraps itself aournd us,
we reach for a shell, listen to its story,
in our hearts, a vision, of complexity.

|11:13 am - a hearts silent reflection|
- I feel alone , in the silence,
my heart wants to cry out,
but the words wont come,
I look for answers, nothing,
I look at the reflection in
the rippling pond,
I see distortion, growing,
widening, my head is spinning,
I see the knarled stem of a rose,
the twists & thorns, the pain,
no scent from the rose,
cant see, only grey, the
the wind wrapping itself
all around me, cold, ice,
feeling numb, heart in pain,
only angry sea, the waves
imprinting the words
I cant say, all round me,
even the sand, leaves my
footprints, the kaleidscope
of my lifes journey,
forever embedded in stone,
yes, a hearts silence relfection.
