Oh Ruby

Poem By Anthony Foster

Oh Ruby Ruby Ruby, your smile that we still see,
Which lights your face like a beacon with the passion of the free?
We know that as you get older when life is not so new,
Will we explore the richness of life’s experience with you, When joy and happiness are balanced, with life the pain and the tears,
Will we ease your pain, and share the joy, in your growing years,



Life is to grasp with passion, there is no other way,
We are only here for a moment, never tomorrow, just today,
So if you should ever read this, this poem is for you,
And all we will ever ask of you, is that to yourself be true.
We who has written this poem of love knowing you today,
That love and truth and freedom will always hold the sway.

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.

1066

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,

Anger

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,
