Great Scott!!!

a technological marvel

designed to solve that particular problem in the

garden, kitchen, study – wherever

exception to the rule – is when the magic tool itself needs repair,

there’s a gadget for that – says the smiling technician.

Midnight Blue

#CYW #MidnightBlue

Moonlight

Moonlight brings a spot of colour to nightime

it brings a touch of blue to a

dreamy scene…highlighting the

number of marshmallow clouds floating

in the sky around the moon

gravitating tween the moon and her reflection in the

half-light dispersed by the water of

the lake below

Silver

Water reflecting sunlight, Image by SC Vincent

Should any foolhardy person want to go treasure hunting

it’s not the treasure horde of a

long lost pirate down in that water

view you see is merely Ra peering at himself in a mirror

even if you went down into the depths

reflections would evaporate….and you would only be saying Hi to fish.

Diminutive

There were advantages to dating the short guy

having your date get in for nowt at the cinema as

everyone thought he was your little lad

Small sized portions at the restaurant

half prices all round

on occasion you always were on childrens menu

reactions to the two of you – was what was

the little lad having

Gentleman suitors watching thought it

unusual seeing the two of

you together – till of course they met him.

Start of a New Day

Greeting me beyond the curtains

long bright line of sky

of course, the sun isn’t full in the sky yet

when it is look forward to seeing the blue

Catching the wind

#writephoto #soar

Riding the storm (Image SC Vincent)

Swifter than their feathered brethren – they

welcome the signs of a changing breeze

it means they’ll be off with their cousins the swallows

for some warm air , seeds and sunshine, whilst

taking occasional naps under leafy sunshades

Some might say they float in the air

when these birds have their wings stretched out

imminent signs of departure – remote

for they’ll need to fill their bellies

to have the energy to fly towards the warm sun

#Fowc #Avarice

Although it might seem a great idea at the time,

Vexed questions of how you spend your money abound

As instead of sharing your good fortune,

Reactions to those around you cant be called charitable

In fact, they’re reminiscent of a Dickens character

Christmas can’t come fast enough for you,

Expect a haunting or two come Christmas Eve

Creature in the House

#Animal #Acrostic #Poetry #Writeclub

Salford, 15th June 2020

Chocolate munching reptile

having a field day in the house he is!

arriving on a mission – to empty larder cupboards –

munching on oranges, strawberries and lemons

even limes take his sweet tooth to 7th Heaven

Lemon sorbet’s and Chocolate cake can’t

escape his grasp

of course – it would be easier if you can see him – it’s

not that easy when he’s disappeared into the woodwork

Ordinary

#Fowc #Ordinary

Sunday 14th June 2020

Ordinary….nothing special…..just your standard run of the mill thing

Real day example, the household shelves at Wal-Mart, Asda or Sainsbury’s

Definition of something churned out in their millions day to day

It’s something or someone – you would never find in the spotlight

Noted though – If they weren’t there – they’d be missed

As you see them nearly every day

Raising smiles when you see them

Yell it out – ORDINARY ? – they’re anything but!

Risk

The reality is usually greater than the prize

if you want to leap out of a plane, or over a cliff edge – you

sometimes have to understand the dangers of what you’d call “Fun”

killing yourself in the search for thrills ? Not a great idea.
