Two bears talking to a Lego Man…..

Up on a shelf i spotted a conversation taking place

my little lego man talking to one of my model bears

compared to some of my other old bears – he’s the smallest

but compared to the lego men – he’s huge 🙂

Fortunately, the lego man sits on a spot where he won’t go to pieces

Sat by a soldier in his guards post, where he’s watching the airfix planes 🙂

Old Bear

#Octpowrimo #Childhood

old bear – colour pencil drawing created in painter by inky

A bit rough round the edges

but he’s still as loveable as ever

now sat in the corner with the newer toys

a compendium of memories from days gone by

companions and confidante

when the darkness falls

or the ghosts come to town unexpectedly

best thing of all – he’ll always be there when you need him

Back together again

The Hero of our tale! (with accompanying support from Inky)

It’s not easy being me….

I took a fall from a window

and went into flight

aided by the northwest wind

I went to pieces, without assistance

My head and legs went different places

I thought – “that’s it!” – and went to bits

as i thought i’d played my aces

But from the kerb and the grass

i saw a hand pass

and head and body did rise

(to my upmost surprise!)


I looked up at the lad,

as i went good from bad

and we headed back home

a new place to roam

So i sit on the shelf, thankful for health

with other model toys – oh joy of joys

enjoying my place – in my safety of space

and spending time as i can – a new lego man.

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

Salford 19th December

Taking his position along the rest of the toys,

Our hero in red, keeps his eye on the rest of his chums

Year on year , he stands on guard

Sometimes, walking back and forth, when he ventures

Out of his box.

Liked by his pals in the house,

Days are brightened by his colourful persona

In winter, he likes walking round, as

Excited little fellows see what the jolly fellow in

Red has brought them

Things people play with

Puzzles

perplexing

confusing

trialling

three words to describe an imagine puzzle

they arrive at the recipients house…fully completed

seems easy doesn’t it ?   The simplest of objectives

dismantle and reconstruct

my advice….leave them in the cellophane

if you value a shred of your sanity

for once opened….it’ll take it bit by bit.

Toy Story

#Toystory #Memories #Childhood

Salford 6th September

I can see them now

scattered around on the floor

those little bricks that stuck together

some square – some rectangles

some red, some yellow, some blue, some green

we made trees and houses

for the little lego people

that rode around in the cars

on the stubbily green grass outside the house

we’d just built

Knitted

Knit

Knights of the realm could be toppled by this – but

Not my mum, or my aunties or Nanna

Its where i learned some very basic steps

To create a scarf for my teddy bear.

To be honest, the twists and turns of loops and purls were

Extremely difficult, but by the end of the month – i’d

Done one that was just the thing for a bear in the cold
