What I Need

Poem By R.M. Alexander

What I need is a cup of coffee.
Strong, Black, Soothing.
My mood is dark,
Darker than the cup in front of me.
The outlook is bleak,
No place to go, no where to live.
But I’ll get through, one cup at a time.

The Beauty Of A Beer

The heady scent,
Of a long cold pint.
That first sip,

Pen To Paper

I try to write,
But it's shit.
Again I put pen to paper,
And again I'm dissapointed.


Of flowered fields I cannot write,
nor sunny day or moon-lit night.

But the feeling of being alone,

A Frigid Morning

My face is chapped,
But my body is warm.

Sunrise At Ayer's Rock (Uluru)

Dark and cold,
only silence to be heard.
A moment for pondering,
for self reflection.
