#173 – Hot summer night in Limerick

A couple lay in bed together It’s midnight Too hot to sleep The windows are open to the sound of birds, bat’s and city sounds from around A small little dog seeks his sleep underneath Astral projections on the ceiling above me, Visions of Johanna on the speaker Her music is up next, That’s usually […]

#165 – Happy belated fathers day

#163 – Sleep

1:10 am, She’s asleep beside me, The dog is snoring on his worn out, faded yellow cushion next to the bed and I can’t get to sleep. She looks much better than I do when I sleep, or when I’m awake There’s a summers breeze outside but it’s late and Ireland so it chills too […]

Try something new Try to be a better person Try moonwalking in the kitchen at midnight Try juggling on top of a pool table Try writing on the walls Try staying awake for 3 days Try to hit the moon with a rock Try jumping over a river Try to accept yourself Try to make […]

#116 – Charlie

More than a dog More than a pet Charlie is a best friend The way he wakes up and runs at the world in front of him is beautiful, So it the way he wakes up and puts his little head back down before he goes about his day. His whole world is love, food […]

#111 – Only now

There is no happy ending No saviour to come and rescue us There is no age where it all becomes clear, When the cobwebs are lifted from our eyes and we’re filled with empathy and wisdom There is only now No perfect partner No perfect day No perfect anything There’s only now No someday I’ll […]
