Visions: Alphabe-Thursday – V

Jenny Matlock

This week’s challenge from Jenny Matlock is to use the vivacious letter V. I’ve gone for another poem as I seem to feel more at home in this genre. Enjoy…

Visions of beauty appear in the night

Vivaciously stepping out in the moonlight

Verging on ghostly they dance across grass

Vainly and gainly as time seems to pass

Versed in the art of stealth like manoeuvre

Victoriously missing the spin of the louvre

Vaguely historic yet oozing with glamour

Visions of beauty in dreams make you clamour.



Thoughts: Alphabe Thursday – T

Jenny Matlock

This week I have started to take part in Jenny Matlock’s Alphabe Thursday. The focus is to use the letter T, so I have written a poem about thoughts, as that is what literally came to mind first!


Thoughts can be cruel, from the darkest of places,
Thoughts can be kind, with a smile and a wink.
Thoughts will show anger on the calmest faces,
Thoughts can appear when we try not to think.

Thoughts are of family, friends and our peers,
Thoughts take us back to a place once we were.
Thoughts are provoking and bring out the tears,
Thoughts crammed with love when you’re thinking of her.

Thoughts fill our days from the time we awake,
Thoughts make us happy and filled with success.
Thoughts can inspire from which we may take,
Thoughts are our goals, aspirations, no less.
