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!

Blush

Blush

bright as a button

long rows of garden plants

unassumingly hide their colourful wares

somewhere under a mass of green leaves

hopefully though, the shy fruits will be spotted before the birds get them

Atmosphere

Atmospheric

lighting-18

Cast that whitelight through the prism

and let the colours scatter, we’ll be

reeling and a rocking , jumping and a jiving

under the rainbow of coloured lights till morning

maybe we’ll meet some one special –

bopping to the beat – its quite an

atmosphere

Blush

#Coloryourworld #cyw #blush

By heavens, that’s a lovely colour of pink you’ve just turned

Looks like someone’s a little bit embarrassed

Unless of course you’ve been caught in the act wi’ your

Someone special –

Hardly a surprise now is it ?

Sea green

I walked out on the sea

toward ocean blue

the fish 🐟 they were keen

they followed me too

 

waves gently moving

from sea onto shore

minnows circling round my feet

on the sea floor

 

and out there in the shallows

the waters light blue green

a gem of crystal waters

in winter rarely seen

 

my feet the fish 🐟 they circle

as they travel round the bay

as I enjoy a paddle

watching things around the way

Beach Emotions Parks

Calm

Calm

Crowds sit in seaside hotels

All in a state – the beach is closed because of winds

Local kids cant fly their kites, say the lifeguards

Making the kids unhappy

 

Cause of the distress ?

All due to tomorrows weather forecast,

Look up to the air, at the clear blue sky

Maybe they’ve got it wrong – stop fretting.

 

Cold air’s coming in from the sea

And they say it’s going to whip up some huge waves

Look at the sea tonight though – gently lapping at the shore

Moments of sheer peace as you sit watching the moon

 

Cheerful thing is – there’s still chance to fly

At the local park across the way

Lets not get distressed, we can return to the beach tomorrow

Maybe, we could have some pancakes on our way home
