Salford, 21st January

Regular readers know i set up this website to share my scribbles and the photos and events that go with them

well, whilst i’ve been setting up Son of Hex….i received an e-mail for my photography from those wonderful chaps at Viewbug.

you can take a look at my profile on there HERE

Might have been the scene i took the other day that inspired the award, it was snowing at the time

Not enough for a snowman though 🙂

Through a window (stained)

#Stained #Glass #Window #Poetry #art #crafts

Produced from pieces of coloured glass

individually picked out and placed in a frame

capturing a scene of a famous building

together, as the sun shines through each piece

up on the walls a coloured scene appears

reactions – by the people amazing

enjoying the site on the steel walls

Battleships

#fowc #strategy

Set warships for design and for creativity

school fun in the playground

taking time out from spelling and sums

rolling out your fleet of ships

as you mark them out on your eight by eight grid

then you guess where your pal has hidden his

each marking the

guesses with a cross where each vessel is

you’ll play this all day – or until the schoolbell rings for class

Breakfast

#socs #firstthing

Before you start

running about in the morning, your inner

engine needs its fuel. It’s

a little bit silly to run on empty

keep it simple – a little something to

fill your tum to see you through the morning

activity till lunch time

sausages and bacon are great – but

that’s more akin to twelve o clock – not eight

Throwing the dice

I

They say that cats are lucky

They say they’ll always thrive

They say they’re just like humans

with character and drive

one thing they don’t tell you

you’re happy to be alive

II

Playing cards with the reaper

as if you have the time

listening to the clock hand

or even the bells chime

wasting your life in a worry

should be considered a crime

III

Getting out when you can get about

Watching the dice as they land

Trying to avoid disappointment

if results are not what you planned

filling a space and enjoying it

and appreciated ? Grand!

Delight

Dreamy, light and fluffy

enjoyed by young and old alike

luscious strawberries held in a moment

it’ll be wolfed down by all

captured in the glass as it is

it’s not any old mousse – and

of course – those at the table will ask “Any more?”

usually, its chef’s privilage to go at the mixing bowl – but

someone will be re-using it to make seconds – or sharing….
