The Night Is Getting Darker 

The night is getting darker 

the street lights are coming on,

another day is leaving

and our energy has gone.

The night is getting darker

the stars will twinkle and shine,

in natural light above us

in our birth they are defined.

The night is getting darker

our astrologies are born,

they’re cast among the shadows

and the coming of the dawn.

The night is getting darker

and our heart felt dreams released

by flutterings of eyelids

as our starlight gives us peace.

To The Clouds Above 

To the clouds above

Falling into daydreams

head to the clouds above,

imagination tripping

in happiness and love.

Ideas wisp and fluffy

billowing in the skies.

Floating to destinies,

wishes to realise.

Eyes dreaming in wonder,

excited,flutter desire.

Inklings in their stargaze,

concepts twinkling inspire.

Infinite creation

in retinas displayed,

walk through clouds on journeys

to futures to be made.

Give Me A Sunrise 

Give me a sunrise

of daydreams, new dawns

and horizons of

universal love.


Give me a sunrise,

each fresh beginning

born in auroras

of orange and pink.


Give me a sunrise,

awaken the world

and harmonise peace.


Unite with nature.

Give me a sunrise

a plethora of

clarity, clear skies

unify mankind


Give me a sunrise

our hope will shine through

our hope will shine through

our dreams will come true.

Icad2015 day 3 and the theme was – draw a map.

I wrote an acrostic haiku  poem – Map 


Map my destiny

And guide me to the future

Paths that I must walk

I then created my image for the theme based around my poem.

I thought Tarot cards are mapped out to predict a destiny.

So I designed a Wheel Of Fortune tarot card.

I bordered the sides of the image with DNA sequencing strands as our futures are all mapped out and predestined in our DNA 

This challenge inspired me to combine poetry, science and mysticism in a creative way.




Come on roll up ladies and gentlemen

And be amazed by life’s miscreations.

Rue in wonder of abnormalities

Natures oddities. Be bewildered by

Imperfections and the truly grotesque

Variety of malformation in

An astounding display of the deformed.

Let your eyes linger on beautiful freaks.

I wrote this poem and created my picture for icad2015 day 2 – the theme being carnival. I drew my image on the back of a postcard and used black art pens and marker pens from Poundland to create it. On the front of the postcard where the address would go I am printing off and then glueing my pen onto it.
