Confession

#fowc #Confession

Cleansing of

Oral admissions

Noted by the angels

For the day of judgement

Expressions of remorse

Said in private but always

Said honestly and in receipt of penance

In an attempt to show an element

Of contrition for the time we

Next meet our maker

Wistful

#writephoto #wistful

A wistful scene

She returned to the moor

every hill a passing memory

veils of tears ran down her face

each time she remembered the angry rant

now she had thrown the ring back at him

she was returning to her cottage – in pieces

Visitors

Salford. 26th March 2020

In the time’s of this nasty virus

It’s very good to know

Mother nature’s sent out a message

and the birds have said hello

For while we’ve been in isolation

our friends with their wings have flown by

to give us some pleasant distraction

from the news that’s been catching our eye

Each day they’ve come out from their nests

where nearby trees they’ve had their rest

and flew around in a bit of a show

before off to their nests they would go

Sat on a roof or a nearby tree

landing in bird baths happy as can be

and enjoying the garden all for free

taking home worms for their tea.

Meticulous

#fowc #meticulous

Attention to detail

Is important when you are doing things

Scribbling down the wrong location

Can land you in a bucket of hot water

If you’re heading for Liverpool

But end up in Llandudno

Dependent

#fowc #dependent

Little set of fingers

clutching on to your big chunky finger

they’ll rely on you through schools, tantrums, weddings and all

seeing you as the one who’s big and tall

till one day the table is turned

and they find they have to apply what from you they’ve learned

Hot Magenta

#CYW #HotMagenta

Salford Street sign – in Hot Magenta

Its not what you’d call a subtle colour

and it couldn’t be called pink or purple

a fiery marriage where red meets blue

but mother nature seems to like

using their off spring to bring a bit

of eye catching colour to the garden

look around you’ll see it every where else too

in signs, on walls and in windows

the future’s bright – the future’s …. Magenta

Suspense

#fowc #suspense

Goalkeeper anticipating free kick

There’s an atmosphere growing

around the opposition’s end at a Northern Football Team

their captain scythed down the home team’s star striker

and there were handbags approaching half time

From uproar and arguments, its down to two men

the man in red against the man in green

man in green stands on the line

man in red puts the ball on the spot

Time seems to have stopped

for a moment, silence has fallen

you could almost hear a noisy blade

of windswept grass

The striker starts to run at the ball

the goalie stands his ground

left or right – that decision

that will change the supporters sound

Crown

#writephoto #crown

Sat atop the hill of wheat

Circle of stone sits on throw of green

Ancient throne perhaps ?

Regal walk through a field of gold

A crowning glory

Before harvest time

Welcome

#SoCS #Welcome

Word that is warm and open to all

everyone is free to come in and join in and relax

lighten the load off your feet and

chomp on some rather delicious delicacies

on the buffet made by the chef!

music and merriment while you’re wined and dined

enjoy your time – away from your workdesk,,,

Collaborate

#fowc #Collaborate

Coming together – master of their crafts

on a mission – to craft a

labour of love,

local writers and poets – some

amateur, some well known professionals

bring together an opus of work to

orderly gander at

read at your leisure

and raise a smile at the

talent on every page

its available for a small donation to charity

of course – their all buying a copy for themselves

noting the day they came together – to create something special
