Handbook

#fowc

Holding the information

a person needs for the job they’re doing

noting the various

do’s and don’ts and

bits and pieces required

out of their kit to do their job effectively

of all their equipment, its the one they’ll refer to – that’s why they

keep it about them at all times

Balanced

#wdys

Getting to the top

of your personal mountain

isn’t the achievement

next thing is

getting the balance to stay there

New targets in sight

often come from

winning the original battle

however, despite how

easy you might see it

reality is – having reached the top

expect a challenge on your spot

Cup-a-Soup

#fowc #instant

Instant gratification

noodles and vegetables

swimming in a flavoursome pool

tasty little number brought to life by the

application of just the right amount of hot water

now – don’t forget – stir it up or you’ll find

there’s lumps at the bottom of your cup (you dont want that)

Moondance

Making the most of that precious

opportunity, when in the field

out of the last rays of sun, just before

nightfall – Luna makes an appearance

down below her – the children skip and jig

and above them – feathered friends flap excited as

night begins to fall

children will be called in as shades of red turn dark blue, so

enjoy the time in the long grass, they will

Lockdown

Looking back, it seemed

out of nowhere

crazy ideas could be applied to

keep a little bug at bay

difficulty identifying friends and colleagues

outdoors or in – everybody was wearing masks

when it got really bad – kept in contact over zoom – but

nobody in authority seemed to follow their own advice

Cluster

#Fowc #Cluster

Coming to life from beneath the ground

leaves hiding a burst of colour

until its time for the flowers to

say “Hello!” to the bright morning sky. keeping

together for their own protection

each individual flower adding their own bit of

radiant colour to the garden

Premiere

#Fowc #Premiere

Its taken some time for the men with the money

to put out the latest film out on release

but they’re pulling out all the big stars

dressed up to the nines

so you and i

recoup their costs

as they travel down the red carpet

looking a little bit older

than they did when they made the film

Kitten watched the stalk of green

in the courtyard

travelling towards the sky

tickling his little paws as he

engages the plant counting the

number of leaves appearing on the stalk

Sponge

#fowc #sponge

I

Something found on the sea shore

perhaps lying lazily around the cockles, whelks and clams

on occasion, travelling by bobbing about the water

numbers of them can be spotted on the seaweed

getting their nutrients for the day from

each drop of seaweed they enjoy

II

Supping up the drops of soapy bathwater

propped up by perfumed foam

often sinking below the water line

navigating its way towards the plug hole

gets squeezed during bath time by

excitable kiddies

Somewhere in a hidden forest

among the scots pines and fir trees

noted gentleman is taking five having

taken and delivered kiddies toys and presents

all around the world

(he’ll be back to work soon – but for now he’s taking a nap!)
