Rocket

#Fowc #Rocket

A bit of a slow burner i think you would call it

The engines went into thrust, leaving clouds in its wake

On board little tiny robots – off to explore that far off planet

Cloud formations forming behind it

Rising up through the blue

for destination coloured orange

Picture in Pieces (p + c – inkdrop)


Satellite imagery is wonderful technology

Landing pictures on our telly screens from far far away

Interference from Meteors, Asteroids (or even a Martian or two)

Can make the snap from the satellite look not as

Exact as you would have expected it

Directors playing jigsaw puzzles before putting it on screen

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

A painting and poem with a space theme created at night (light pollution permitting!)

Birth of a star : Artwork by Inky (Sept 2019)

Out there in deep space

Revolving particles of matter are

Being brought together

In the creation of

The latest star in the night sky

Illumination

Salford, 8th April 2019

LED Lighting – Outside the house (Image BF Kirkham)

It’s not as if an alien were

looking for a landing spot or

leading lights of theatre were performing outside

under portable stage lighting –

moon looks on in awe – as halogen lighting casts

instant brightness down the street

night time glow falls over housing

as orbs of light create silhouettes and shadow

the sky seems brighter somehow

its like the brightness has hidden all the stars

overhead – outside, some place there’s satellites flying

note though – with all the light – you can’t see them

Stars

Somewhere out in the northern skies

There’s a little blue man

Aiming to communicate…he’s

Really far away, but

Sends you a signal from off in the distance

Moon Man

Salford 12th September 2018

#promptuarium #Visitor

visitor.jpg

When the men from the rocket

landed on the moon

they weren’t expecting

a reception committee

The locals hadn’t seen Astronauts

and invited them to tea

they looked a little different

but acted like you and me

And they helped the men collect

rocks and soil from the ground

as the bosses from earth

wanted to know – if there was life around

And after the ‘nauts had left for home

the moon people to earth would go

to learn about their next door neighbours

in their fancy UFO

Another piece inspired by the #Promptuarium

Many thought you a funny kid

On most nights they’d see you staring into space

Overlooking the positions of the stars and the zodiac

No other subject interested you more

Destiny ? to be the first man to live – on a base on the moon

Until then – you sit out in the garden – plotting your way there

Satellites floating in zero gravity over your head as you

Track your course with telescope, pencil and paper

Depleted

Deplete

They pulled the plug

took its power away

all communication

stopped

 

Now floating in space

a toy for the little green men

floating in space

with little to do
