Up / Down

#Socs #Up #Down

I

The sky and stars are yours

rising to new heights

where you want to go

is all up to you

maybe one day

you’ll make it to the moon

II

Keeping your feet on

Terra Firma – was always

your best idea – sinking your feet

down into nice warm sand

The moon is nice

from a seat by the sea

Hungry postbox

Salford, 15th March 2021 – from a writeclub prompt

A postbox is a box that eats socks

Rochdale pioneers Museum, Rochdale – Image By Inky

There’s a reason why they are red.

Just before night fall – the humans put the washing out

in the hope they’ll be dry in the morning

the crows cry out – but everyone’s asleep

as the poor old washing line find’s itself

accosted by the eater of socks

and right socks and left cry out for each other

as the holder of the mail

helps itself to a night time snack

Enjoying the chaos

#MLMM

While the storms are heading for the city walls

and the fog’s creeping in

you’re oblivious to it all,

watching visual anaesthesia on your devices of fun

walking past the chaos and destruction

enjoying the feast of fun

provided by your masters

Heads or tails

#Socs #toss

Stream of Consciousness Saturday Banner

a piece on a coin toss for #Socs by inky

50:50 – I think that’s what they call it

chances of you picking the right side of the coin

It seems so plausible – there’s only two choices

but like a smaller version of a roulette wheel

the fates are rising and falling

with each turn of the coin in the air

and decisions fall in the victors favour

whether the head sees the skies or ground under foot

Causeway

#Writephoto #Causeway

Causeway (Image by SC Vincent)

Created as a path across the water

a stretch of sand , gravel or road

usually gets wet when the tide comes in or

sea or river levels rise

especially after really bad storms

when that happens – its advisable to take

another route – or else

you’ll do more than get your feet wet!

Drastic Haircut

In order to save their bosses some cash

the boys in charge of pruning

on the posh side of the road

gave the walkways arbors

really serious hair cuts

people were amused (or aghast)

as the trees they walked past

cautiously walking over in their shoes, pumps or boots

raised bricks caused by lumps of the trees roots.

Barbecue

Painting - Sausages on a Grill

Best Beef Sausages

Are happily sizzling over

Roasting hots coals

Beefburgers drip hot fat in

Expectation of sizzling onions

Currently cooking on a skillet, while

Up on the far table – next to the sesame seeded buns

Every kind of sauce and relish imaginable – they’ve even got Curry!

Shadow V.3

#FOWC #Shadow

A response by inky to Fandango’s One word challenge

Sunshine’s monochrome friend

Heavens Universal to animal, bird, reptile and human

As the sun shines its beams – it appears on the floor

Disappearing when the clouds cover it up

Of course – they disappear

When the sun goes behind – reappearing on a bright moon

Productive

#Fowc #Productive #Art

Positioned on the canal bank

ready with brush in hand

opposite his subject matter

days of careful planning

up along the waterside – initial sketching

crafted out this creation

the money spent ? the time invested

irrelevant – it’s all down to the

viewer and whether they like it or not

effort of the artist ? paid off when it leaves the gallery.

“Abstract ”

#abstract #art #technology

Creating summat out of the ordinary from something ordinary

Created from my computer, watch and android phone

And captured and “mucked around with ” by my ipad

If I were to give this piece a title, I’d call it “watching over obsolescence”
