“Weather”

5th February 2019

Red skies at Night, Shepherds Delight…..

Red Sky at Night, Shepherds Delight - an example.

This old phrase is still around today.

It was the shepherds way of telling fine weather – a red sky at night normally foretold of fine weather next morning

Whilst a red sky in the morning, normally was followed by grey clouds in the skies above. It gave the shepherd time to get his flock onto lower ground and avoid an immediate drenching 🙂

We’re not out of winter yet in the UK, no matter what the met office say, and I’ve known it snow in March, despite it being technically Spring.

Pea Soup

10th January 2019

I could say mother natures been cooking,

but she’s obscured my view

I can barely see, what’s in front of me

never mind a metre or two

And the pea soup – its a moving

as it follows the warmth of the ground

its making pretty whirls and swirls

as it moves around

And its not easy when your commuting

from museum to back to home

as the fog falls on down, it makes you frown

as you might just be looking through foam!

Intruders

Salford, 21st December 2018

Melanie looked at the living room carpet

Enveloped by four soggy footprints

Local law enforcement scoured the area, but

Terrible thing was … they couldn’t find the culprits

Even the footprints outside could be found , it’s like they

Disappeared in the snow ❄️

Teardrops

The thought of it just being the

Evolution of evaporation

and condensation, doesn’t

ring true with me. Up there with the

Deity, helping create the mountains and

Rivers, the angels have heard their boss

On occasion when he’s hit his thumb with a hammer

Precipitation? Maybe if you are solely a geographer

Something tells me it’s the angels crying!

In retreat

#octpowrimo

winters calling,

in some ways, the mercury retreating was

notably a sign from the thermometer

travelling swiftly toward the bulb

even the food has changed from salads to

roasts and shepherds pie

Rain

#rain #clouds #weather #waterimage.jpg

rivers of water fall from sky

clouds have had falling out again

droplets of water cling to glass

not wanting to drop into sewers

fighting gravity to stop imminent splashes

#Weather #Poetry

Ra passed by his friends the clouds

as the earth turned Northern skies from Day to Dusk

in travelling from west to east

newly formed stratus went pink in surprise

by ra’s disappearance to a temperature rise

out on eastern skies began the day

while in northern skies moon and stars they played

 

A clouds picnic

#cffc #weather #clouds #week4

mish mash of marshmallow skies

summer seems so far away

as angry grey cloud looms overhead

but out in the distance

as if playing peek a boo 👻

the sky pops through the clouds

all clearest and blue

Two Quarrelling Brothers

DSC_0704.JPG

I sat watching by the window

as two quarrelling brothers

traded blows over a tree outside

both lay claim on this tall green beauty

and each tried their hardest to get it for themselves

but as day turned into night

the tree stayed rooted to its spot

and neither brother got what they wanted

opting to play with some fallen leaves instead
