Octpowrimo – Day 22 – Broken pieces

#Octpowrimo #Brokenpieces

Imperial War Museum North, Manchester UK (via the Inkwell), 22nd October 2019

How does someone express the act of war ?

take you through a hundred years

and tell that tale – that no one else can tell anymore.

The man with a vision

took a thing for brewing his cuppa

and changed it into something – iconic

Smashed with a hammer

Earth air and water

came together and reformed

Falling at the side of a waterway

painted by a painter

who’s centre stood next door

And in the evening sunlight

the air shard shone as shimmering light

cascaded off its solid steel

Morning beckons

and the tales from the shards

can be heard across town

from the tales within.

Out to sea

The Shipwreck cove (Navagio) : taken from a boat off Zakynthos coast

#Octpowrimo #Ocean #Sea

Sat on a boat in the Sunshine

enjoying the ocean blues

as the sealife swims alongside

Shoals of

excitable marine life

are following the line of the boat

Slicing through the waves

each passenger lifts up slightly

as the boat goes up a touch

Horizon II

Poetry

#Fowc #Horizon #HorizonII

A shot of Duxford Airfield, Taken by Inky, for the planes taking off and the clouds in the horizon

Half way tween the earth and the sky

On which the sun exchanges places with the moon

Reality is although you can see it

In your eye line – you’ll find it impossible to reach

Zero degrees – and its all so far away

On the occasion you’ve reached your destination –

Next thing you see – is that place you want to be

A response to the Photo prompt from Rochelle Wisoff-fields – Web Here

They had arrived in the night

on this little street in town

in an effort to send a message

to those walking around

Little ones smiled – not at all scared

as their coloured lights shone and flared

and locals did point and smile

so the visitors decided to stay awhile

Through the snowfall

A response to the latest Thursday Photo Prompt from Sue Vincent

Seems the noble prince of the forest

Never misses the opportunity to go for a run

Out in all weathers, but

When it gets too heavy, you will

Find him, under the nearest

Arbour of an evergreen for shelter

Leaves of the evergreen – perfect cover till he

Leaps from under it when the snow has stopped

Pink Carnation

A Pink Carnation (Image : Brian F Kirkham)

#CYW #Carnation-Pink

Popping up around the spring

its the kind of flower that likes a party

noted for its use as a buttonhole flower

keeping up appearances at family occasions

Curves more wiggly than your

average rose

rows upon rows keep each other standing up,

not falling over

at the nearest breath of wind.

they don’t look much, but once trimmed and located

in a gentleman’s suit buttonhole

on a family occasion, they

never fail to impress the guests
