Pizzazz

Something to brighten up the borders

of your garden as the leaves on the trees start to

roll around in the autumn wind

the gardeners call it pink, the flower buffs call it purple

of course, while it’s still in

flower – nobody minds what shade it is – it still looks lovely by the lawn

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

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

Heffalumps

Perhaps its my inner pooh-bear

at play but i’m

crazee about these

happy jungle animals

you’ll see they have big ears and long noses

definately adept at reaching fruit and nuts

elevated in the tallest trees

really high up

many seen in the jungle, but also seen elsewhere

#Acrostic #Model #Plane

Red Arrow Display Plane

Royal air force display team plane

engineered by the modellists

designed to fit together – without any glue

As things go – it was

Really easy to put together – snapping together

Red white and blue flag on the tailfin

Only cause for concern

When the plane falls from its perch – putting it back together

Plum

Perpetually found in a christmas pudding

luscious fruit sweet, with a stone in the middle

usually found in a jar in a jam or

made into a sauce and served with Dim Sum

Milkshake

Salford, 24th October 2020

#Socs #Milkshake

Maybe its the

illuminating colours i

like about them, but i

keep returning to the coffee shop

slurping them down and

having a marvellous time

allying icecream, banana, and the freshest milk

kept cold in an ice cold frosty refridgerator

enjoyable on any seasonal day

Lockdown – an acrostic

#acrostic #lockdown

Magpies are having a field day

as the neighbourhood still sleeps

nipping on and off the rooftiles while

cats on the ground they creep

household activity – minimum

everyone’s taken to bed, for

somebody said there’s a lockdown, so

they’ve decided to rest their heads

even the stadiums are empty – no fans to follow the score

reality needs them return now – so the teams can hear them roar
