Mels poetry


You simply are the greatest man
I've ever come to find
Your always looking out for me
So lovely and so kind

You always know just what to say
When trouble comes around
You listen and give out very good advice
A star without a doubt

Were always chatting and laughing
And meeting up for tea
Whan ever i need to talk to you
Your always there for me

I don't know what i'd do without you
My man who cares like you
Your not just my friend you know
But my lover and husband TOO xxx


Friends are like flowers
They brighten your day
Friends like you don't grow on trees
I know that is so true
But if friends were flowers there is no doubt
How quickly i would pick you
Side by side
Miles apart
A friend like you
Stays close to my




We really should start to eonomise.
The state this world is in
We all need to count our penny's.
Throw less food into the bins
Please help to preserve our planet
Otherwise we will have no planet
Please try to stop using aerosils
Cut down to roll on instead
Recycle all your used tins
And your bottles in the bank
Try and keep your pillow cases
And make a bed spread instead
And if you saave a lot
Rewards will come to thee
You'll have more cash and so afford
Do try to save our planet
And our planet will be good
For YOU and ME

FAMILY (what family)
Family what family
Andy and i haven't had a famly
We brought ourselves up from an early age
And had to fend for ourselves
No family here no family for us to turn to
No cuddles no soothing words when hurt inside

You get used to not having a family around you
We just get on with our lives
Don't get us wrong we have tried a thousand times
To make up but the sarcasim we can't handle anymore
The way they treat us so heartbreaking
When all we want to do is help
And listen to what the family wants
And we have tried to be there
WE'VE dropped everything in the past
To go and visit cos they wanted to see us
But when we arrive they can't help but critisise
They start to pick fault with andy or me
I used to let it go over my head
But it just made things worse
I know that now
Cos i've done nothing to the family
Otherway around more like
I have come to accept I have no family and neither has andy


Such a wonderful place is cardross
And not far from the sea
The view is absoluletly amazing
And wonderful to see
My andy was born in Cardross
Such a lovely man you could possibly meet
So much magic all around
This lovely place called CARDROSS
This place will thrill you



Am a disappointment my mum said to me
She meant it too with that face she pulls
The twisted one i always get to see
Nom matter what i do
There's no pleasing her
Mum really has nothing to say to me
From here to etenity
No warm sayings
No words of love
All i get is that face that says it all

Your no son of mine
your a disappointment to all of us
My mum has often said
that hurt me worse than anything
I got myself a job
A good one at that
But not to her
I joined the army and learned the hard way
That didn't put a smile on my mum's face
Job after job i got and enjoyed
But even that wasn't good enough
I started to write a book
OH he's a bloody autho now she'd say
Who do you think you are my mum said to me one day
I got so upset that no matter what i tried to do
Mum was there with her sarcastic comments and that face
I can't take no more of her selfish antics
I wouldn't mind if i'd hurt her in anyway
But all i have ever done is to try and show her LOVE xxx

what joy RAIN

What a beautiful day the rain is here
Watering the plant's in the gardens
The flowers are lowering their petal's for more drink
The frog's are hopping mad
The grass on the ground and hill's are looking very lush
What a wondrful day
The streams are rising and churning boulders away
And the birds are having a feast
My dog's are in the stream barking in disbelieve
The sky is getting darker now
And the dropplet's are getting bigger
The waterfall i can see is roaring down the glen
Such a pretty day when raining
There is a rainbow near the waterfall
And the colours are glisening
The wildlife enjoys it to as they preen there feathers
While watching you

"wee hermits"


We are the wee hermits
Who live in the black bus
Far into the forest
And no people around
The dogs can run this way and that
And then jump into the river warming and black
We play in the river till the sun lowers herself behind the hills
Till twilight's here
And the bats are out in force
to catch their late dinner
We love living here
No people in sight
So quiet and still
No more rubbish around
as andy has cleared it all away
And what a difference
We can now see the rasberry's and lot's of other fruits
My favourite are the rassberry's soft and sweet
their juices run down your chin
Heaven is this place
Walk carefully cos MOTHER EARTH WILL WANT IT BACK xxx



2008-05-08 13:09:48 THE TRAVELLERS BUS
Blue woodsmoke curled lazily into the air
round a black pot of broth cooking slow.
a pony stood grazing fresh succulent grass
while a little black & white dog dylan
lays below the bus wheels.
The brown travellers man andy,
sat at ease with his lot.
As he whittled away at some wood.
the black bus with it's black shinny wheels
was all that he owned in the world.
Next day andy moved on with his shinny bus
he was whistling a right merry tune
and i waved him goodbye till he passed out of sight
just a tiny black dot on the hill
I have never forgotten that brown traveller man
peacefully wondering the trail
and i long for one more glimpse of andy
and his little black and white dog

Andy the Daft Hermit lives 45 minutes outside Inverness with his wife Mel in an old bus parked in a layby. This current home of theirs is the longest they have ever stayed in one spot. “I’ve been travelling now 25 years,” said Andy Lowe. “Mel’s been travelling 15. One of the reasons we’ve come and stayed up here is because of Mel’s health. I wanted to bring her to the mountains for fresh air and clean water and just a slower pace of life.” Mel has had breast cancer twice, skin cancer once, and for three years believed she had bone cancer after being wrongly diagnosed. Andy’s belief in the restorative powers of the north made them pack up ‘The Black Bus’ that they live in and cross the border into Scotland. New Highland home for hermit couple Andy and Mel “I think we both believe in trying to get to a more simple way of life,” said Andy, “but it’s strange for us because we are sort of hermits, or we like to live separate, but it’s not being anti-social… it’s just the way we are that allows us to be creative.” Andy first began travelling when he left the army. Fed up with bureaucracy he packed a rucksack and left for France and has been travelling ever since. By investing any money the couple have earned into solar panels and wind generators they now live a self-sustaining existence, without electric bills, and collect rain water “straight from Heaven”. “It’s not easy,” said Mel. “There might be time when there might not be enough facilities around, but you always find a way, you know?” Rather than rejecting technology, Andy blogs about his travels online and collaborates with artists from around the world via his ‘Scratchy Heid Film Studio’, which he runs from a static trailer next to the couple’s bus. He explained his philosophy: “My belief is that if you can go through life and you drop dead and you’ve got a balance there that slightly outweighs the good than the bad, you’ve done alright. “Yesterday, with what Mel’s been through with the cancer and all that, I had a woman on one of my sites there that thanked me for the writing, for the positive things, and to me that’s worth everything. You can keep your millions, we’re not interested. That is what we do.” To check out Andy’s artwork and video projects check out his website. MORE FROM THE NORTH
