Still

Water by a bank – image from S.C. Vincent

#Writephoto #Still

Sitting by the water , taking in the view

The inhabitants must be sleeping – i thought i’d see a few

In fact all i see is reflections, of the trees a while away

Lined up, all upside down – but seen as clear as day, while

Looking for fish, as i laze away

Rumor

#FOWC #Rumor

Reading some tittle-tattle in the morning press ?

Unless there’s something that sticks – don’t worry! – It’ll

Make wonderful wrapping for fish suppers tomorrow

Of course – these things come from your actions

Reality will make you make a statement if its true

Achievement

#poetry #learning #expectation

Salford 16th February

A piece on school visits

Three coaches rolled up in the car park

One blue, one black, one green

Passing auntie, the football and the shops

Traffic jams were no fun

Or Waiting for the man with the sign to

Pass go from stop

There were grumbles getting off the coach

Old Trafford exchanged for the war museum

Pupils listening to sir, bore on

The security …. more of the same, but

Out of a corner….a new name

Person from a new place….change of space

Tanks and planes…new things to see

Objects to touch….and all for free

People to tell tales of air land and sea

And your guide at the entrance is about the space

A person to turn to with a friendly face

Telling a tale of the car, plane and gun

Making your visit a bit more fun

Impossible

#Fowc #Impossible

Its crazy – you’re given the

Made up puzzle in a box and then

Prise it apart – in order to put in back together again

Of course, they give you a guide – but

Something isn’t right

Something doesn’t fit – and

It’s making you wonder why you took the whole thing out of the

Box – all the pieces are there

Laid out on the table – but who said it would be

Easy ?

Somethings Brewing…..(Photo prompt from Sue Vincent)


#beyondthestorm #writephoto

Something told you it wasn’t going to be a

Terrific idea to venture onto the hills today, but

Of course you were out voted – as you and your pals

Rambled up the public footpath, seeking out paradise –

Maybe you could discuss what you found in that shelter – Atop the hill

Riddle

#Fowc #Riddle

Rhymes that pose a question

In verse, or a song or a Rhyme

Difficult posers to ponder

Definitely takes you some time

Long winded questions – with no apparent answer

Except when the bell starts to chime

Advance

#Fowc #Advance #Museums

A group of eager young minds

Dropped in on a historical building or two today

Very interested in taking in the displays

And getting a feel of some real items used of the time

Now , anyone could tell their enthusiasm was building as one or two led a

Charge up the stairwell –

Except for one thing – none of them knew their way around!

Packing

#SoCs #Holidays

Packing our bags again

as we head off for a country break

camping under some national park stars

key to this essential journey – notepad, camera and pencils

if needed – wellies and wet weather gear

navigation and maps essential for hiking and

good sleeping bag for kipping under canvas

Sketchy

#fowc #sketchy

Doodle from Soccer Alex @ Photobucket.com

Some say, there’s the start of a masterpiece in that notebook of hers

Kept in a top draw of her work desk

End pieces for show ? No, but look beyond the layers of random doodle

There’s the beginnings of something that

Could be talked about by art critics for many years to come – but for now

Held away, till she’s ready for the world to see it

You could take a sneaky peek – but you would only see the first splat on the canvas

Prerogative

#fowc #prerogative

Picking out your own path

Really doesn’t need anyones permission

Even if you seek advice

Roads they travel down are down to you

Of course, there will be times you may

Go down the wrong route,

Reaction to that ? It’s part of the learning process

And the final decision is down to you…

There’s always another turn in the road, and

If you don’t like a particular path you can

Veer away from it if you want to

Expect a surprise or two…that’s life!
