Sunday Sonnet!

IMG_3398 (WP)

Let not inclement comments mar delight
In having reached, at last, a cherished goal;
Achievement did not come without a fight,
Transcending obstacles beyond control;
No golden spoon adorned your lowly birth,
Nor carpet, red, your advent trumpeted,
No wherewithal to tell your earthly worth,
Sheer giftedness your heritage, instead;
Disparagement from rancid, privileged peers,
Determined, hungry motivation fuelled;
While kindly smiles subordinated smears,
And generosity your heart bejewelled.
Persistence paved Determination’s way,
While Perseverance underpinned each stay!

Sunday Sonnet!

IMG_4636 WP


I can do naught, but marvel at the mind
That credulously to untruths succumb,
As though the eye of reason is struck blind,
And senses, all, are chronically numb;
Has common sense her age old insight lost,
Confounded by unfounded wiles of fear?
Can ways be found corrosion to accost,
Lest treasured mores forever disappear?
Let not the breath of despair foul the air,
Contaminating hope to spawn discord,
Lest nationhood be rent beyond repair,
Sent hurtling to a future, untoward.
Armed with forefathers’ grit and self-belief,
The people shall defeat presumptuous chief.

Greetings from Bushka!

Greetings! (WP)


Sincere apologies for my protracted silence here…..No discourtesy intended to anyone of my treasured friends and followers. 😇 Some of you have kindly enquired after my well-being…….ALL IS WELL!

After a super time in Germany and Austria over the festive season, I found, upon my return, that I have, somehow, lost my enthusiasm for ‘blogging’. Admittedly, I am otherwise occupied which diminishes my time and inclination to be here.

In the light of generous comments from some of my friends and followers I hope to resume posting my ‘Sunday Sonnet’ for the foreseeable future.

I am not sure how regular I shall be interacting with posts and comments. No discourtesy intended….🤷

I wish you ALL WELL……May Good Fortune smile on you whatever you do…wherever you go!

God Bless!
