Close encounters of the slurred kind

#Writeclub

The fluted cocktail glass

took a fateful tumble on the bar floor

after third refill of that cocktail

everyone told her not to have

The luminosity of the puddle

led to some strange things “Blowing her mind”

her mates watched on

as she performed the fandango with a streetlight called Bill

Her pals got her home eventually

navigating her stillettos

over craftily curved cobbles

and limestone slabs

Sobering up, made her ponder

how her silver coins had changed

into salty cashew nuts

propped up by the garden gate

singing along to the cats chorus

Cheerful

#writeclub #cheerful

Things are looking up

colours exploding in the local green

as sunshine appears through the the clouds

little birds chirping to one and all

as Mum and dad deliver breakfast from above

their song filling the air as you walk by

“Hello, Hello” they cheep and chirp

as they try to grab your eye

not being greedy – just wanting attention

and all the while the oak tree smiles

as they rest on his arms

Mercurial

#fowc #mercurial

Maybe you would call it an overreaction , but

Every human being seems to have a pressure guage

Rising and falling at the drop of a hat

Could it be down to the weather perhaps ?

Umbrellas being up when the sun is meant to be shining

Really doesn’t help matters, however

If sunbeams pass through raindrops

A band of colour goes across the sky, making the

Locals, young or old, smile

Masquerade

#MLMM

Sat on the jetty

As Sun switches with Moon

Waiting for the boat

Moonlight Rendezvous

With Boy of her hearts desire

and tasty picnic

Face hidden by mask

Girl unknown to the new boy

passed in the corridor

Hysterical

#fear #reaction

They told you to calm down

Over reaction was never the right course of action

But then again, this had been building up

Since the letter fell through the letterbox

If they’d read your medical notes

They would have realised

The administration of a drug

Wasn’t going to be that easy

For the sight of a shining hypodermic

Would be enough to send you haywire

Going to pieces before you went through the door

Ponder

#Fowc #Ponder

Cupcakes on a tray , Painter Art by Inky

You’ve been stood by the cafe counter

for over ten minutes

the teapot you ordered will have to be rewarmed

as you ponder over your latest quandry

Lemon, Raspberry, Blueberry or Vanilla ?

don’t hang about – have all four!!!

Cranky

#Fowc #Cranky

Could it be said – in order to get out of bed, you

Rolled in the wrong direction this morning ?

Absurd demands made at the breakfast table

Not only that – but a face that looked like its eaten the sourest lemon

Keep that up, and nobody will talk to you

You can’t have salmon for breakfast – have porridge instead!

Rage

#fowc #Rage

Red Mist descending

as the bull has the red rag rustled in front of it

got to admit – its a bit foolhardy

engaging the switch that early

Cry

#Patriciasplace #fivelinesorless

Cut knee or broken heart

Reaction is still the same

Yelps of pain, followed by fallen tears

Valid

#fowc #Valid

Veiled attempts to seem normal

a ticket to the dance , on a Friday night

looking at your loved one , as if you seemed to care

it seems to be working – they’re not all staring at you

don’t destroy it by being a doughnut at the bar!
