Sunday Poetry with Gypsy Woman wastelands and shattered times

ridin’ those highways of time

through my everlovin’ mind

lookin’ for some little ole sign

that says he’s all mine

but wastelands unkind

are all that i find

ain’t no oasis on which i can hope

nor nothin’ else to help me cope

nothin’ but sun bleached bones

love’s last remnants ever’where strewn

heartbeats embedded in sun-drenched sand

siftin’ right through my beggin’ hands

day scorches all in this burnin’ land

and night sings the blues in black velvet bands

life without love now takin’ its toll

peace don’t come to a heart heavy soul

ridin’ those highways of time

where cheatin’ for love was always a crime

and wastelands unkind

are all that i find


shattered times

 it was a time of shattered souls

and broken hearts

that time when we were ripped apart

a time of fractured nights

and love’s dark blight

damaged days

and perilous ways

in boundless dark

a time of broken souls

and shattered hearts

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
