Love Potion

I’m a celebration

In the bedroom. Kitchen. Car.

Wherever you wish…

I’m your remedy.


When the pain cuts deep

And the night doesn’t sleep

Then look for me…

I’m your remedy.


I’m the stretcher

for the heel of your shoe.

Make your things, and you

Ease and Expand.


When life gets too hard,

Just turn that card.

It’s the Queen of Hearts,

I’m your remedy.


When things get tight,

In the middle of the night,

Then reach for me…

I’m your remedy.

Valentine’s Day Poem

This is a poem for the broken hearted.

For those who have loved and lost.

The Star crossed lovers

Who set their course on ‘Mission Impossible’


Don’t be sad because you’ve tried and failed.

Because your hopes were dashed,

Because you never saw it coming,

Or, saw it coming and wished it wouldn’t.


Remember the love you had in your heart.

How generously you gave it.

You are that same person,

Be kind to yourself, have a cup of tea!


For this is a day unlike any other.

Drenched in commercialism and expectation.

When hearts are wrenched out of pockets.

Tomorrow is another day.


Time heals. It reveals…it goes on.

It makes buds blossom.

And fruit rot on the vine.

There’s no stopping its ruthless progress.


On this auspicious day of Love,

Write down for posterity,

Something you like about you.

Send yourself a Valentine


Suffragette Anniversary

For the 100th anniversary of partial votes for women.

Hurrah for the Suffragettes

Who, one hundred years ago,

Fought for the right of women to vote.

Struck inequality, a deadly blow.


Let us not forgot their struggle

Against the gender discrimination

Of every woman, of every race

Of every female in this nation


Lets remind employers & unions,

That equal job means equal pay.

Lets change the law & enforce it,

To make sure it stays that way.


Sexual harassment in the workplace,

Is something that has to end.

A women’s right to feel safe at work,

Is a right we need to defend.


The success of our country’s economy,

Relies on women to work.

Professional success & opportunity,

Is not a just masculine perk.


In honour of the Suffragettes.

Let us, men and women agree

Sexual discrimination thwarts potential

Its Equality that sets us free

Mapping Our Network

Ours is a diverse and shifting Landscape.

We navigate it, plan our path

A network of Commitment and Friendship

Offering service, doing what we can


See how the pathways ebb and flow

Its boundaries flickers in the dark

It still exists when it’s not visible

Just reach out, make a mark


Ours is a secret and not so secret route

It’s a code we need to share

The way we communicate with each other

The way we show that we care


Together we can find a way

To illuminate the map

So that everyone who needs it

Can see and understand it

Kisses can have Consequences

Kisses can have consequences.

Even those, secret snatched ones

In the back of someone’s car, or cupboard.

That no-one else saw


Kisses do in fact count.

Including those wet, half biting ones

That fill your mouth with saliva…

That you’d like to forget


Or the ones, with someone’s

Girlfriend, wife or maiden aunt.

Whilst drunk, and alone,

And provoked, at a party


Kisses can have consequences

Even if you have to wait 10 years

To reap the reward

Of their success or failure


Sometimes there’s no respite

From the jaw aching

Gut and heart wrenching

Memory of them


No amount of concentration

Self control, denial or willpower

Diminishes the ramification

Of that particular kiss


Kisses can bury down,

Deep into your subconscious.

Nestle in the marrow of your bones

Become more you, than you are


Kisses can be poetry of breath.

Ambrosia of the Gods.

Better than sex, or the start

Of the best sex you have ever had


Kisses can have Consequences.
