Daydream

Sunday 1st March 2020

Doing schoolwork when the sun is shining is

A bit of a chore – and kids have been doing it for

Years, staring out the window

Doodling sheep out of the clouds

Reactions from the teacher ?

Expected, but getting angry won’t grab their attention

As the warm rays cast onto the tables of the classroom

Making colourful rainbows across the table

#Weather #Poetry

Ra passed by his friends the clouds

as the earth turned Northern skies from Day to Dusk

in travelling from west to east

newly formed stratus went pink in surprise

by ra’s disappearance to a temperature rise

out on eastern skies began the day

while in northern skies moon and stars they played

#cffc #weather #clouds #week4

mish mash of marshmallow skies

summer seems so far away

as angry grey cloud looms overhead

but out in the distance

as if playing peek a boo 👻

the sky pops through the clouds

all clearest and blue

Salford 9th July 2018

The light little cirrus and stratus

help themselves to their

own little place in the sky

until the cloud departs they’ll be overlooked by the

great thinker of the skies himself – cumulonimbus – who’s

happily floating over the air

thinking about their next destination

some might call them Marshmallows, others call them ‘thought stores’

#sky #weather #blue #trails #stratus

Whilst planes, birds and balloons traverse in the sky

in the air the clouds mark their movement

swiftly making their way throught the blue

peppering the sky with all sorts of clouds

stratus – the long thin ones trail across the sky

Singing in the rain

#In light of the lack of a fresh writing prompt – i’ve poached this one from the wordpress e-book – 365 Writing prompts….enjoy….inky.#

Salford 16th June 2018

Inclement is how the weathermen would have put it

the weather itself couldn’t make its mind up

the sun was out – the birds were tweeting – and everyone was content

that was of course till two sets of clouds collided into one another

and slowly, but surely, small waterdrops began to fall from the sky

pitter pattering into puddles – easily covered by peoples umbrellas

until the raindrops sped up – and turned into stairrods

filling up birdbaths and heading for waterways

the quickest way they could

ladies and gents diving for cover under the nearest shelter

till quick as it arrived – the stairrods departed

and cotton-wool clouds replaced the grey ones

while birds enjoyed the relax

in a pool provided by the cloud

A whole host of clouds float in

blue skies

over your head

very interesting to look at, but

expect some water to fall if any turn grey

#CB&W #Clouds

Tuesday afternoon.

Marshmallows floating over Greater Manchester

Take away the blue in the sky

and those clouds seem to develop

like a photograph in a laboratory

the clouds grow and move become more defined

and you find yourself looking for sleeping cherubs

In response to https://ceenphotography.com/cees-challenges/fun-foto-challenge/

Starting off with a Colourful one, taken at a session of the photography group Basic Clicks – Six Colourful Carrots on Blue Canvas!

here’s a couple of interesting Cutlery pieces – the first is of four forks against a wall,  – i liked the shadows created in this pic.

Combination of ideas here, with a twist – Spirals of Cutlery , set on canvas.

Still life shot of various vegetables set out on a slate Cheeseboard, some onions (white and red), a tomato, a cut Cabbage and the return of one of those Carrots we saw earlier

Now fellow wordpressors might have seen this one before, but as its cees photochallenge, i thought i’d put it on here – not for the wonderful bridge (that’s the wrong letter folks!!!) but for those fluffy white marshmallow clouds , over looking the quayside at Salford, attached to the Manchester ship Canal.

Blue flower

Last but not least, here’s a close up of a cornflower – i like this one because of the colour!

Cotton candy clouds

as the sun says peek a boo

over multi coloured high rises

for an hour or two

Skies turn into confectioners delights

as cotton candy clouds turn from white to blue

with occasional shades of pink or yellow
