Dangers of Swimming at Night

I live by the ocean and the inspiration for this poem and painting was an article in the local paper about a tourist to the Gold Coast who went swimming late one night after a celebratory night-out in Surfers Paradise.

It is important to always respect the ocean both during the day and at night.

The Dangers of swimming at night

Dangers of swimming at night.

An ocean is a world of its own

A mystery, an unknown zone

Wonder at its undiscovered depths

Respect and love its strength.

The ocean gives , the ocean takes

Upon shores its endless waves break

We sail upon, we fish, we play

Sun shines on blue throughout  the day.

At night, we swim for fun

No fear,  let  inhibitions run

Who cares what lurks beneath,

Way down, down in the deep.

However danger goes before.

Check who’s watching the shore

Swim in close don’t go too far

Good morning sunshine.

good morning sunshine b

Good morning sunshine

Your radiant rays welcome the day

Orange hues chase night skies away

Your warmth revives life anew

Caress the sky into hues of blue.

Good morning sunshine.

Flowers and buds seek out your light

Morning birds celebrate with songs so bright

Each morning let us praise with voice

Contemplate and reverently rejoice

Giver of life – good morning sunshine.

 

The photograph of this beautiful sunrise was taken this week on my early morning walk.  The photo has been digitally altered to make it an interesting image.

The Fat Cats rule!

FFat Catsat Cats – They call the tune.

Big Brother entices us, pulls our strings

We need new clothes, need more of those

A Large TV ; sounds good to me.

Pay your tax – no time to relax

Spend more than you earn -will we ever learn?

Put your money in shares,

Stop! Who cares!

 

 

What did the fish say?

Dam cartoonNothing makes you feel better than a good laugh.  Scientists tell us that laughing is fun and makes us feel better but we already know that.  A good comedy movie or a good joke always promotes communication and strengthens interaction between people and benefits both the giver and the receiver.

My Dad is a lovely man and always makes everyone around him feel welcome and important.  He loves to tell jokes and therefore each time I see him I always try to have a new joke for him – sometime it becomes a bit of a joke fest.

Anyhow just for fun! I thought I try and draw a few humourous cartoon images from some of the very simple jokes that I have heard over the years. Here is my first cartoon.  Hope you like it.
