The Circles we walk

Cheers to Jacqueline @ Writeclub for the prompt!

I suppose its the direction of travel

guided by the earth itself

moving wheels round a orbital road

with spokes heading off around

to the nearest city, village or town

on foot the directions a little bit longer

but it makes the traveller a little bit stronger

and the places to take in are plenty to see

passing natures delights, happy and free

Through grasses and meadows, past cows and sheep

watching the little ones gambol and leap

keeping on a path that starts from point A

and takes you on a wonder enjoying your day

Off on a Walk

#Christmas #Dog #Walk

Cooped up inside

He tried his best to enjoy the festivities

Reality is – despite playing with all his toys

Indoors isn’t where he wanted to be

So, he persuaded his owner

To take him for a walk over the

Mossy greens of the local park where

A host of trees and twigs will be played with – on return

Sausages will be found in his bowl – Late gift from Santa Paws!

Emerging

#Writephoto #Emerging

Everybody – keep calm

may as it seen – it looks like a giant coming through the wall

every forester knows who it is – its Pan!

reviving the trees and preparing them for autumn

green grasses being pushed up by his fingers

it might come as a shock – but hes a busy guy this time of year

note how the seeds are opening up and falling to

ground ? Thats all down to him

Guard your picnic lunches

as here they come – in packs again

necks peering over bags, looking for

delicacies they can happily chomp on

expect a bit of trouble – as there will be a

ruckus tween feathered friends – over the prize

It takes a lot to build a town

it’s not just bricks and mortar

but all those little things you

occasionally take for granted

The corner shop

The Lollipop Man

The local school

doing the best they can

The Bin Men keeping the local streets clean

and the local parks and gardens green

while gardeners plants the flowers and trees

so little uns can pick as much as they please

Mr Postie delivers the latest news

while mr Policeman looks for traffic and clues

and doctor and nurse makes sure everyone’s fine

while little uns go to their classes in line

And getting us safely from A to B

Mrs Bus Drivers taking us home for our tea

Not before travelling off to the shops so

Visiting Mr Grocer we pop.

Slope

Photo by eberhard grossgasteiger on Pexels.com

The golf pro landed the ball

downhill

all seemed well

that was until

aided by the grass or on its own

perhaps by wind it was blown

down the slope , and into a trap

into the sand, in a moments snap

the ball was rescued by his sand wedge

only to find its self back on the ledge

and on this slightly windy day

he watched, as his ball down the hill, rolled away

Through the Garden Gate II

#Promptuarium

wondering over terracotta tiles

passing scents of geraniums and delphinums

trees of deciduous and conifer lining the way

till you reach the wooden door

not as you think – the end of the walk

merely the beginning – as a path twists and turns

passing through woodland and flowery borders

sounds of birdsong and wildlife round every corner

Walk down an old street

The light dawns,

seagulls pass overhead

bluest sky beckons

shoelaces fastened

heading off down the path

following sunbeams

the path never changes

but the people passing do

walking over stone

short distances green

awaken sleepy braincells

bringing happiness

end of the distance

heading back, to where it began

ascending the stones

Autumn Leaves Cutout, Created by Inky

I’d call it the colour of autumn

a sign from the leaves on the trees

that winter is on its way

the mercury is retreating ,

and something a little colder is replacing

the warm colours

its pleasing to the eye

for it is the last we’ll see of the deciduous leaves

till spring

Labyrinth

#fowc #labyrinth

Losing your mind

as you travel its paths

breadcrumbs won’t help you here

you’ll need something a little bit sturdier as you make your way

round the puzzle

if you manage to get to the centre

next thing you’ll need to do is to make your way out

that will take a while – of course

help always comes from a helpful park ranger
