Thinking

There’s a wall in the special exhibition of IWM North called lest we forget, asking peoples opinions of how we should remember the lost of two world wars – i’ve summed it up in this acrostic

The wall spoke clearly

having delivered its verdict

it was clear to those asked – the idea of

not remembering two world wars was a bad one

keep on remembering – silently whispered the opaque squares

it’s what we promised those who fell

note the date – and commemorate the lost of the

great war and the one that took place soon after

Restart

Redo from start, is what the tech on the line said

Expect a bit of installing, as the

Silicon chips went back to the way they were

Testing times for the humble laptop user

As a heap of programs stood in front of him

Ready to enter the CD – ROM Drive

Time would pass – and the machine be fixed – eventually

Challenge 30 – No. 28

“Depth”

Down among the depths, taken at the Sea life centre, Old Trafford, Manchester


Deep down on the sea bed

Eager crustaceans

Play cat and mouse with

The fishermen up above them, and

Hoping they avoid the fishermans traps as they

Scurry along the sandy sea bed

#birds

Scattered food lying on the tarmac, brings them here

Preening themselves in the fallen

Aqua that you and I call rain

Reactions to the feast, vary from

Roars of delight to sunflower seeds to

Overall disappointment …. small grains again ?

When the back door opens and the treasures

Spread across the ground, far and wide

Blue green

Waterfalls and Closeups

#coloryourworld #cyw #bluegreen

A piece for colour your world also about the painting of a waterfall

The painter played with his shades

capturing land and sky

luscious fields of green

meeting up with shades of blue

and as field and sky met Together

at horizon, they converged

forming new colour round middle

Where land and sky they merged

Toy soldier

Salford 19th December

Taking his position along the rest of the toys,

Our hero in red, keeps his eye on the rest of his chums

Year on year , he stands on guard

Sometimes, walking back and forth, when he ventures

Out of his box.

Liked by his pals in the house,

Days are brightened by his colourful persona

In winter, he likes walking round, as

Excited little fellows see what the jolly fellow in

Red has brought them

Countdown to Christmas

Tuesday 11th December

A little treat, hides behind the

Doors of the advent calendar

Veiled behind some cardboard and foil

Each door has something tasty behind it

Noting the days passing

Towards Christmas Day

Sounds

#sounds #acrostic

Sunday evening, is a whole lot quieter than Sunday morning

Outside, the rumble of traffic is down to a minimum

Unless it’s a plane or a train you want to catch

Navigating those roads should be a breeze

Double glazing muffles any noises, and the wildlife are

Sleeping in their beds soundly, keeping warm

Cedar

Salford 3rd December

A response to the daily challenge at Daily word prompt

 

Conquering the blue

Each one towering over the other to get to the clouds

Dynamic in their structure

As their red branches and green fronds

Rise high up in the sky
