#Fowc #Gadget

Great Scott!!!

a technological marvel

designed to solve that particular problem in the

garden, kitchen, study – wherever

exception to the rule – is when the magic tool itself needs repair,

there’s a gadget for that – says the smiling technician.

Poetry Weather

Lightning

Like a flash in the pan

It appears from the clouds

Going quickly through the atmosphere

Heading for the ground

Thunder noisily telling you that

not that far away – buckets of water will be falling soon

Illuminating that message in brief bursts

Night skies lit up in a spectacular display – it’s

Going to get wet – very soon….

Start of a New Day

Greeting me beyond the curtains

long bright line of sky

of course, the sun isn’t full in the sky yet

when it is look forward to seeing the blue

Mauvelous

Maybe, you would call it purple – but there’s definitely

a shade or two of pink hiding in this colour

unless you were looking at it really close up –

very few would succeed to match it up

except of course the guys or girls at the wallpaper warehouse – who

like mixing up the reds blues and yellows

of course you spot its pinkish hues up by fellow plants

up in the garden

shades of pink popping up the yellows, purples and blues

Catching the wind

Riding the storm (Image SC Vincent)

Swifter than their feathered brethren – they

welcome the signs of a changing breeze

it means they’ll be off with their cousins the swallows

for some warm air , seeds and sunshine, whilst

taking occasional naps under leafy sunshades

Some might say they float in the air

when these birds have their wings stretched out

imminent signs of departure – remote

for they’ll need to fill their bellies

to have the energy to fly towards the warm sun

Avarice

#Fowc #Avarice

Although it might seem a great idea at the time,

Vexed questions of how you spend your money abound

As instead of sharing your good fortune,

Reactions to those around you cant be called charitable

In fact, they’re reminiscent of a Dickens character

Christmas can’t come fast enough for you,

Expect a haunting or two come Christmas Eve

Risk

The reality is usually greater than the prize

if you want to leap out of a plane, or over a cliff edge – you

sometimes have to understand the dangers of what you’d call “Fun”

killing yourself in the search for thrills ? Not a great idea.

Frame

#Fowc #Frame

Fixed moment in time…

relayed in glass

and mounted proudly on the wall

might be an artwork, a certificate or a photo, but it’s something

everyone will enjoy looking at

Central II

Converging on the controlled area

everything’s got to be run from there

networks, governance, even your daily shop

the locals who live there feed the machine

really – they have no choice

as every service they rely on is

located in the centre of the metropolis

You can make all kinds of garment from this

A Cardigan, a Hoodie, a Hat or a Scarf

Reaction to their creation – from the kids – a smile

Not forgetting the family cat who’s trying to catch the ball around the room
