Wizardry

#Discover Prompts #Food #Dish

6th April 2020

While i was busy sketching away

in the kitchen, dad was busy

zipping around with tomatoes and beef

and carrots and onion, creating a wonderful dish, based

round the pasta shells that were

dancing away in boiling water, and a little olive oil

Engine

Salford, 6th April 2020

#fowc #engine

Engine, outside the power hall at Museum of Science and Industry, Manchester

Every mechanic knows – it’s

Not the wheels , but the engine that

Get’s a driver from A to B

It’s truly – the heart of any transport

Naval, bus, car or motor bike

Exception – if you’re reliant on foot or pedal power

Salford, Sunday 5th April 2020

To many, it’s better than Sunday Lunch

Over the country, they’ve been cooking under the grill

A combination of Ham and Cheese, and sometimes tomato

Sitting under the grill and combining to make a

Totally tasty treat

Instantaneous flavour from bite to bite

End to scrumptious end

Tonight

#Fowc #Tonight

Salford, 4th April

The city lights are sparkling

only, there’s no one human around

night time antics restricted, leisure venues closed

in an attempt to curb a horrible bug

great news for the feathered and furred residents –

hopping and skipping about the place

till restrictions are lifted

Together

Sun bobbing down the horizon – photo provided by sue vincent

#Writephoto #together

They’re quite a team – the Sun and the Moon

On the whole they’re quite phenomenal

Giving the people that live on Mother earth, summat to look at

Each day they work either side of this blue jewel

The Sun giving light to one half while the Moon shines on the other

Helping fishermen land their catches, and Night workers to find their way home

Earth helping both by turning around

Rotating to catch the light

Seagulls

Salford , 2nd April 2020

Someone is hovering over Salford’s bins

every day they’ve been seen – on spying missions

and some say – they’re worse than the pigeons

gracefully flying through the skies

until the bins on the waterside are

looking full – likelihood is – they’ll chance their

luck – with a lass coming home from the chippy

Wistful

#writephoto #wistful

A wistful scene

She returned to the moor

every hill a passing memory

veils of tears ran down her face

each time she remembered the angry rant

now she had thrown the ring back at him

she was returning to her cottage – in pieces

Collaborate

#fowc #Collaborate

Coming together – master of their crafts

on a mission – to craft a

labour of love,

local writers and poets – some

amateur, some well known professionals

bring together an opus of work to

orderly gander at

read at your leisure

and raise a smile at the

talent on every page

its available for a small donation to charity

of course – their all buying a copy for themselves

noting the day they came together – to create something special

Carouse

#Fowc #Carouse

Thursday 19th March 2020

Carrying on like they were in nirvana

Alert – the bouncers on the door

Rowdy – you’d call their behaviour – as they left the

On-licence publican’s for a place a little bit incognito

Under each of the revellers arms

Something rich, and red and alcoholic to go with their meal

Expect some fun and games at the Bring your own bistro

#Fowc #Browse

Bookstore owners are getting upset

Reality is their customers are using the stores more like a library

Objecting to paying full price for their wares

When they know they can pick up a free copy from the web

Simply by clicking a button on their devices

Even now – they’re not picking off the shelf – they’re noting down titles
