Hail

#Fowc #Hail

Hard rain fell from the skies

aiming to fall on northern plains

“it’s dangerous this falling ice”, said a

legionnaire to his centurion – so quickly they took cover

Funny Bloke

A response to a #Writeclub prompt

(poetry purists – it’s a San-san)

“funny bloke”

a poem from inky, based on page 16, line 16 of

Round Ireland with a Fridge“, by Tony Hawks.

He’d been brought in to warm up the crowd

before the main act began

The audience sat there – some bemused

while other’s shouted – beer fuelled – aloud

“bring on the band” – he wasn’t a fan

six minutes passed – it didn’t go fast

till the audience amused by comic pratfalls – reused

raised cheers from the assembled crowd

indeed they were amused

Waiting

#Promptuarium

Where she’s heading – nobody knows

as she sits waiting for her connection

indications on the ticket give a rough idea

till you mention other ways out of the station

in a sprawling web of transport links

navigation could lead to Macclesfield or Scarborough

getting there – requires a train – it hasn’t arrived yet

Time Travelling Tourist

#Promptuarium

Taking a look at the airport departure board

often a dilemma for the most seasoned traveller

unless of course you’re waiting for the right moment

rolling up for the open portal

in time to land at your destination

soft white sands and warm summer waters

taken in the blink of an eye

Ring

#Socs #Ring

the noise of many things in the house

from the alarm clock that wakes you in the morning

to the egg timer ensuring your boiled egg is just right

and you daren’t miss the noise of some bells

no matter how noisy it is

the bells of the bakelite phone?

it’s your reletives on the end of the line – waiting to say hello

Kittens

#Animals #Cats #Kittens

Inspired by the Salt & Pepper Design Team, i’ve been writing acrostics and poetry using some of their fab graphic fonts – I posted “Doggies” last week, so here’s something less canine, more feline

Kittens, an acrostic by Inky.
