The Mountain

A Bronze-winning Acrostic (written by me) from Allpoetry

Maybe you would think it foolish,
Over hills and across dales he went with his tools
Under ridges and across crags – all to
Navigate the ultimate prize
Towards greatness he headed
And facing torrents of wind and rain
Ice and snow – and occasional blizzard, he
Negotiated his nemesis – celebrating with a tin of soup at the summit

Acrostic Memorial Poetry

Memorial

Monoliths of mighty stone
Encapsulate the names of the heroes
Motivated to defend their country.
On foreign lands and waters they lie, but in
Reality, they are never forgotten.
Inscriptions remind us of the debt, we
All owe to the men and women who fought
Long ago

Pasta

By Brian F Kirkham

#Foodforthesoul

 

Prepared by the finest hands

Allied with flavours of the region

Succent Tomatoes, mix with the finest herbs and mozzarella

To create a sensation fit for any Italian town

And Ham, Salami and Olives enhance the taste

Bakewell

Brought to the fore by that Derbyshire town

Almonds in abundance in that wonderful spongey tart

Kept in the bakers front window

Everyone appreciates its fullsome flavour

When its brought out at afternoon tea

Each slice full of almonds and

Lashings of raspberry jam and topped with a

Layer of tasty icing

A Short Piece on Clocks

Container of time

Locking tumblers and cogs

Over days months and years

Cover the movement of hands – hear them tick!

Keeping watch for Father Time as

Sand passes through his timer
