Darkness

#Octpowrimo #animals #halloween

Halloween seems to have come early

the lights outside have dimmed

nothing around in the skies

but on terra firma hear dogs and cats cry

they scamper around for a way in

disturbing stray metallic food tins

they really dont like to give their owners a fright

but watch as they head for that security light

Taking Five

#Relaxation #Elephant #Watering hole

Pampering after a long day in the

african sunshine

catching rainbows in their

homemade bubbles

younger members of the family

directing streams of water towards

either mum or dad

reaction – a rockabye in either trunk while in

muddier spots – hippo’s are happy in their holes

Song

#Socs #Song

It’s been really quiet recently.

Actors and musicians have been in their rooms

the theatres have closed because of a bug

no buskers on the street either

Something needed to be done

resident birds calling out in tune

celebrating the sunshine

telling the human beans indoors

it’s time to get up

Cats on a street pavement

Singing in chorus

On a street corner

Dogs howling at the moon

wailing a familiar tune

out in the midnight garden

The bears move house

The new residents

As regular readers of my blog will know, I’ve been shifting things around to accommodate my new bits of aerial artwork, namely my quickbuild planes from airfix

They’re now all happily parked on the top of my bookshelves, so when little paws show up with my sister…they won’t get accidentally broken

However, this has meant the little Disney toys I picked up from the Disney store in Manchester have had to find a new spot to sit.

They’re now sat on a lower bookshelf looking after the books, which they’re sat in front of. This means my nephews can pick them up and play with them as they want, without disturbing any of the squadron.
