TO DREAM

 

 

 

When night comes softly
On feet as light as air,
I can see clearly
Of what I shouldn’t care.

Alone on this hilltop
With the embracing cold,
Boundaries cannot stop
Me from being so bold.

I want to look at the night,
Gaze out into the unknown,
Dare to dream of my flight,
And dream of where I have flown.

Secrets hidden in darkness,
Beneath a cloak of despair.
Shadows roaming in blackness,
A striking and deadly pair.

At night I can roam free
And sail forth on gossamer wings.
Be all that I can be
No matter what the dark night brings.

WELCOME TO THE PARTY

WELCOME TO THE PARTY

 

Candles along the stairs,

Keepers of the dark night.

We’ve come for the party

With no one else in sight.

 

More candles down the hall,

Their eerie lights flicker.

Empty rooms greet us as

We begin to bicker.

 

The basement door stands open.

We argue and make a fuss.

We agree to take the stairs

As the door slams behind us.

 

THE DEAD GAME has begun.

Daily Footprint, #26 – Happy Hour!

I think it’s finally time to call it quits on this epic work day and head home. But wait! It has been a stressful day (/year) and you decide that a drink is in order. Time to head to your favorite pub for a swift half, or whatever’s your poison.

Social and Environmental Impact of Your Local Pub

At first glance, there may not appear to be many social or environmental factors to consider when rating bars (compared to, say, restaurants or cell phones) but there are actually quite a few. Of course there are – otherwise, I wouldn’t be writing this post! So, I’m going to highlight some of them, giving examples of Green Stars Reviews of various pubs that I’ve posted on TripAdvisor, Google Maps, or Yelp (click on names below to see the reviews).

Packaging and Transportation

With the huge surge in the popularity of craft beer, the number of brewpubs has shot up over the last few years. Beer that’s brewed on site has significantly lower carbon (transportation) and material (packaging) footprints. Next best is local draught beer (transported in reusable kegs), bearing in mind that this is sometimes the best option if that brewery does a particularly good job on sustainability. Then there’s local beer sold in cans or bottles and, in last place, canned or bottled beer from distant lands. Here’s an article on the debate of cans versus bottles. Many brewpubs now sell beer to go in reusable glass growlers, so you never have to buy packaged beer again if you don’t want to!

If you’re dealing with a regular bar rather than a brewpub then just take note that some are much better at supporting local breweries than others. The Mutton Lane Inn in Cork, Ireland, is a great pub that supports local brewers (like Franciscan Well) and microbreweries (Rising Sons).

OPEN THE DOOR

Door to Fantasy Blue

 

OPEN THE DOOR

A door to fantasies.
To new worlds.
To new beginnings.
A life worth living.

A door to your imagination.
Where words flow like water.
Ideas ride the tides.
Stories to live by.

A door to your heart.
Love and happiness in store.
Clear blue skies for all.
Wishes set free to the wind.

 

 

THEY’RE HERE TO STAY

Sentries

 

Look at the pretty sky.
Such beauty way up high.
Clouds drifting by so slowly
Like a shrine to what’s holy.

All of this will soon come to an end.
Don’t bother to search for a friend.
The moon will rise up in the night sky
Into the danger from what lurks high.

Dark shadows will descend onto the sand.
Shrieking louder than a marching band.
What do they want from our peaceful town?
Death and mayhem–all served with a frown.

Run for your life if you still can.
A danger for each and every man.
The Dead are here to stay.
They didn’t come to play.

DARE TO DREAM

I want to look at the night,
Gaze out into the unknown.
Dare to dream of flight,
A dream of being unknown.

When night comes softly
On feet as light as air,
I can see more clearly
Of what I can dare.

Alone on this hilltop
With the embracing cold,
I will leap past boundaries
That I have created of my own.

Darkness hides all secrets
Beneath its cloak of despair.
Secrets that lie safe and secure
Under the cloak of my hair.

At night I can roam free
Without the hindrance of others.
I can leap over castle walls,
Past the slombering mothers.

Looking down at all below me,
Sleeping in their beds of down,
I can see how I am different
As my eyes sweep the town.

BLUE DEPTHS

Falling to the deep.

I cannot find sleep.

I thrash in the cold.

In the devil’s hold.

Water covers my face.

A dark and creepy place.

I struggle for air.

Current takes my hair.

I’m drowning in my bed.

It is all in my head.

 

ARMIES OF RED

Source:

 

I stand alone.

In armies of red.

To face the night.

While others are dead.

 

Come no closer.

Fear my open face.

Stay away from here.

But they quicken their pace.

 

Tomorrow will be here soon.

l am all that is left.

Bow your heads in prayer.

Thank the gods for the rest.

 

THE DEAD GAME

 

A FENCE

 

e n e r g y

 

A fence for protection

To keep out the raging storm.

We will be safe and dry.

This has gone beyond the norm.

 

Faces raised in fury,

The waves reach a new height.

They attempt to break through.

They fight with all their might.

 

We will stay for the duration.

We refuse to flee our homes.

Out come the flashlights,

We’ve lost our lights and phones.

 

This storm won’t defeat us.

The next one won’t either.

We stick together as one

Until the day is won.
