Ballerinas : Painting by Inky using Painter Essentials 6


They woke up one spring morning,
at the light of the sun
Bobbing around in a gentle breeze
their dancing – just begun

Over the long grass and daisies they dropped
as their coloured dresses flipped and flopped
and as they danced round in the wind
the daisies waited for the breeze to recind

Duetting with the dandelions
as their seed just flew away
wondering who – apart from the wind
that they would like to play

Pink and purple parading in pairs
above a daisy covered shower
among the blades of fresh green grass
a wonderful coloured flower

Tale of a tree

Garden, Poetry

Salford, 5th July 2019

A piece of poetry, taken from my repository on Allpoetry.com

The rotten apple of the bunch,
was saved from sentence of th’bin
it was placed inside a plot of soil
and kept warm there and in.

Now Children wondered – would it grow,
with loads of apples there in tow?
Dad he watered plot every day
So apple could try to make its way

And as the apple started to root,
from out of the ground – popped up a shoot
the apple had started its journey to be
a lovely fruitful apple tree

And leaves and branches started to take
as Dad and Children round tree did rake
and then one day – as the sun it did rise
the family had a fruity surprise!

Little Green apples hung from the tree,
occasionally pecked by a bird or a bee
these would grow – and time would fly
and then the apples – would end in a pie!

A Garden image with red and blue flowers.  Sandstone Sundial at its heart.
A piece of Acetate Art by Inky – “Garden (Sundial)

A pencil and paper – the start of the process

Composing where the individual flowers went

Encapsulating the sandstone sundial at its heart

Transferred to hardened plastic

And painted in translucent paint

The final result ? A stained window without glass –

Exceptional

Ornamental Glass Decoration in the Garden at BASIC in Salford.

Where I’ve come with my new hobby

It was never about capturing a moment

blink at the wrong time – it was gone

hands gripped around the camera

like my life depended on it

but then with the picture

of a simple silver garden decoration

I saw something looking back at me

in a moment of wonder

I was taking a picture of something

and taking a picture of myself at the same time…

Grandfather always wondered

How every time his favourite granddaughter visited

Out in the garden, the traps stayed empty – and

Something furry was nibbling at his prize vegetables

They all seemed to reside by the tree at the back – where the children’s

Swing rested on a branch – his granddaughters favourite spot
