Castle Gloom (2021)

There was a young man in Dollar

he lived in such terrible squalor

a castle called Gloom

it was an old tomb

there was an old man in Dollar

Rivers (2021)

Life is like a river

rapids, meanders, shallows, pools

we never know where it will take us

we set sail

the infinite sea awaits us all

enjoy the adventure

life is a journey

a gift for us all

Perfect Love (2021)

Perfect love is what you are

eternal love, eternal stars

a thousand sun beam

a force for good

a flock of angels from high above

Poetry by Eva Askham Spencer

The Ochils (2021)

Rising up above the town

the Ochils stand in shades of brown

rolling hills and whittled glens

full of life and little wrens

adventures waiting its time to go..

the summit's dusted in glistening snow

Life is a journey

Poetry by Eva - Life is a journey

Life is a journey

How far will you go?

What will you see?

What will you sow?

Life is for living, For/giving, for letting go

This is the truth this much I know.

A Time for Peace

Why is peace a dream long gone?

 

Why do wars go on and on?

 

Learn the truth and shine the light

 

There's no such thing as a glorious fight

 

Wars are folly, wars aren't free

 

Trauma passes genetically

 

Stop the madness, stop the sales

 

Of guns and bombs and belts with nails

 

A world of peace is not a dream

 

It's a lot more simple than it may seem.

Why?

No food, No phone, No job, No home

 

I want to work but jobs are few

 

Tell me please what should I do?

 

Rent is high - Hope is low

 

The status quo is BLOW, BLOW, BLOW

 

Tell me why this has to be

 

When UBI would set us free?

 

I know you hear me

 

Please hear this plea

 

UBI will set us free

 

Reconsider and make it so

 

UBI will help us grow.

Salina Bay - 2012

Gentle lapping of the waves

 

Slowly sunlight dips away

 

Moonlit night and stars beyond

 

Happy memories of which I'm fond.

Spirit 2018

The hearts of horses are wild and free
 

That's how life is meant to be
 

Growing, learning, wandering free 
 

It can be so for you for me.
