Creating Rainbows

#Art #Colours #Rainbows

On a winters night

give me a bright white canvas

and seven colourful characters

let me bend them to my will without braking

and all with just a splash of rain

casting the sight of a colourful rainbow

across the page

Advent

As far as I know it, the countdown to Christmas day has begun

December starts tomorrow morning, when

Vergers and other officers of the church will be

Engaging with the parishioners about the upcoming

Nativity celebrations

Taking place in the cathedral on Christmas Eve

Carriage

#fowc #carriage

Sat by the platform

it waits for the sign as

gentlemen and ladies alike

now make their way to their furnished cabins

a wonderful journey to places wonderful

lakes mountains and streams – but they have to wait for the flag

Two brothers

#octpowrimo #dogs #pointers

Two dogs…twins ? By inky

Been apart for a while , but

Really you never forget family

Out on the green fields

Two siblings meet, for the first time in a while

Happy to see each other, with

Eager calls and sniffs

Ready to run after one another for

Simply enjoying the moment

Orbit

#Photography #Colour

The Orb rested on its spot

as in a moment, the image came into view

Images forming – like magic

colours red , green, yellow and blue

captured in a moment

by the little glass ball

Lego Man – Out in Space! – Image by Brian F Kirkham

He always wanted to travel

Lego man living on the shelf

his greatest descent – not a fall from grace

but sent into flight from a feather duster

till one day he flew

onto a book that made his dreams

into reality (of sorts) – as he landed and

walked into a patchwork of stars

Ballerinas

Salford 12th September 2019

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

Serenity

#FOWC #Serenity #Grateful

Trees on an empty beach in Greece, On Calm Blue Waters

Reminiscence of a sandy beach on a greek island

Enjoying the sound of the sea

Lapping against the islands shore

As I take five, under the shade of a cool olive tree

Xpectations – none, just looking forward to the rest of the day

Time travel

#Promptuarium #Photo Album


The Sands of time seem to pass
so slowly when you’re young
the cogs in the clock
seem like they don’t even move

And yet, sat with your nephews
on the big comfy sofa
you watch time go back
almost in an instant

Moments of fun
spent as a child
creating lines of sandcastles
on a northern beach

Decorations of seashells
and seaweed – covering the scene
as you and your pals
from down the street – enjoy an icecream

And faces gone – but not forgotten

look as fresh as the day the camera captured

the day little feet took a cautious dip

into northern waters
