MY VALUES BASE
When you think you've reached rock bottom and decided that's your lot
And there's nothing else to hold to - what you have is what you've got
And you've told yourself it's over everything's beyond repair
Even feel your soul is tortured - overloaded with despair

In your silent screams are questions that you need some answers to
Yet everything seems dark and cold - nothing comes back ... See more

Morning. P.Rimmer.

Pale light steals the night,
That daily miracle,
Gifted by a spinning globe,
I'll take it on the chin,
I'll take it with both hands,
Hug it to my chest,
I'll have it with glee,
I'll take it gratefully.

The Chancer. P.Rimmer.

A fish can risk the shallows,
Or seek the deeper place,
Swim in the school,
Be one in a number,
The odds improve when you don't stand out,
Blend in a crowd,
A single tree in a forest,
Is not a single tree,
Till someone picks it out,
Takes it down,
Marks it out of place.
Lumber in the bone yard,
I don't know where I'm going,
But I do know how I'm getting there,
One in the ... See more

Painter As Poet – New Zealand Poetry

PAINTER AS POET

I feel as if a thousand poems are waiting to be said,
why have I waited all these years to try my hand at rhyme?
Using sentences as colours for the words inside my head.

Teasing syllables and sounds out from all the things I’ve read,
to paint the kind of image that depicts things from my time,
I feel as if a thousand poems are waiting to be said.

Of happy thoughts, or sad ... See more

Te Henga. P.Rimmer.

White noise roar of surf,
Air redolent of ozone and sea,
So thick it's food,
Heady,
Warm black sand,
Underfoot,
Ragged, remarkable.
West coast Auckland,
Wild, exuberant,
Exultant,
I feel the smallness of my humanity,
Here,
Respect.
I will not swim in your warm waters,
I will wash my feet,
In your Tidal streams.
Only those who know you well,
Would chance a risk,
In your ... See more

POPPIES

a poppy seed flies on the wind
and landing lightly on the earth
lies waiting for sun's energy
to germinate and give it birth

a droplet falls from rainy skies
weak sunlight warming with its rays
until in spring new growth begins
it's bloom sublime on summer days

blood red a field of poppies shine
each one a hundred others yield
these symbols ever in our hearts
of all who die on Flanders ... See more

BENEATH OUR FEET

energy boiling underground
those seismic forces ebb and flow
sometimes erupt with might and sound
energy boiling underground
such cataclysmic shifts abound
tectonic plates play touch and go
energy boiling underground
those seismic forces ebb and flow

"WHEN I WAS A SOLDIER" by Sonya Young
(Memory of a past life)

We were young, naive and as proud as peacocks as we were shipped off
to fight for our land of hope and glory..... frigid trenches decorated with
mud and excrement, became our new homes.

The rough woollen uniforms scatched and nagged incessantly like angry wives
as our tin hats spoke to us in morbidly- fluent ... See more

Early in the morning. Pete (The Chancer) Rimmer.

Early in the morning,
Way before cocks crow,
Early in the morning,
Before even the sun,
Puts colour in the sky,
I reach out for you baby,
My arms close on empty air,
Been so long now sweet lady,
So long since you,
Scorned my bed..

Early in the morning,
Way before the first bird sings,
Early in the morning my sweet baby,
I wipe a lonely tear from ... See more
