Poem By Anthony Foster


Flowers cascade down the side of your house,
Reds, Whites and Blues shimmer in the early summer sunshine,
We feel your affection shining through your dry wit,
And laugh with you as we see your passion.

We could not share your distress,
As that was the loss of family
We hoped that things would all workout,
For you and to all things ever happily

But at least the hand of fate threw us together,
When in we moved next door,
Although we have not said goodbye,
Yet in our hearts you have not left us at all,

Thank you for being who you were,
Which forever for us means who you are?
As nature stirs with the shoots of early spring,
We will feel your presence in the warmth of the sunshine.

Islands In The Sky

It was misty and white that Christmas morning,
As we started our climb through the forest,
The dripping green moss scented pines pervading,
Our deepest senses as we walked.

An Ode To Our Dog

You big and lumbering hairy mate,
What is left that you haven’t chewed?
After wolfing whatever is placed on your plate,
And then you are grovelling for food.

How I Feel

Life is about joy and passion,
Not about misery and gloom,
We lose many friends along the way,
So let’s celebrate the people we have known.


The pale winter sun cast reflections from the wet winter grass,
When we walked down the slope past the brown runny bog,
Reflecting on the cries of men and knights running past,
Some falling wounded and dying in their desperate upward slog,

A Beautiful World

Dedicated to Ahmad Shiddiqi

Lines of energy pulse gently through the earth,
Golden rays of dawn lightly brush the ground,


The beat in my chest catches in my throat,
The unfairness assaults me, my mind‘s in a moat,
I want to smash something, to show how you are so wrong,
The moment is destroyed I want to go I don’t belong,
