#life #travel #sunrise #breakfast #morning
I woke up early this morning, the local wildlife were up with the sun. I’m unaware of what they were discussing….probably breakfast, or maybe football ⚽️ . If anybody knows what rooks , blackbirds, song thrushes, and pigeons talk about over breakfast…please let me know
I spotted two aircraft travelling over the skies of Salford this morning. Don’t know where they were going, but I’m sure it was some place nice and hot. Sun is slowly making its way above the horizon in the east, soon it will be bright and sunny
The soft rolling traffic from the early morning Trafford road makes a somewhat pleasant accompaniment to the sound of the ticking clock. But in what’s now known as a twenty four hour society/world , there’s always deliveries to be made, early morning jobs to get to and work to be done
There’s a break in the quiet rumble of the traffic, as a Motorcycle rider mistakes one of the carriageways for a stretch of the Isle of Man TT race course. It’s awoken the pigeons kipping in the eaves of the nearby apartment block.
Another trail of white crosses the Salford skies as the rumble of early morning traffic continues. The broadcasters will be preparing the news items for delivery about now, whilst out on the waterfront, as the deliveries come in and out of the factories of Trafford park, and noise from The Trafford road begins to grow, feathered residents of the nearby basins are flexing their webbed feet , attending to cygnets and goslings all and pondering the really important issues of the day,
What’s for breakfast ?
Salford, 4th February 2018
Singing it’s calls in the middle of the night
A black cat appears with four paws white
Out of the cover he pops up his head
Skipping into garden, waiting to be fed
Wailing kept silent, for his owner still sleeps
So round garden with mouse, he gently creeps
This week, the challenge was to find pictures with words with two Es in them. So, to start off – here’s an artwork, created by me from a stock photo from google. It’s an African Elephant – and its recognisable by its two big ears! I chose this to begin as they reminded me of my first visit to Chester zoo…i still have the mug!
Living in Salford, meant my first trip to the Zoo to see the Elephants was by coach down the A roads and motorways to get there. Later on, i travelled by car with mum , dad and my little sister, it was an FSO – built like a Jeep , so this model is perfect as a replica!
I enjoyed walking around the enclosures , and seeing the big cats and the chimpanzees
And here’s one of some Cheetahs , some of the big cats at Chester Zoo, alongside the Lions and Tigers and Leopards, (there was even a panther there!)
An acrostic by inky, in response to the daily post prompt
Some people – call it the ground
One of natures building blocks
If you looked at it – from deep below – you would call it
Several different creatures – they call it home
On occasion , they climb out of their earthy house for a drop of sun
Insects , worms and nocturnal mammals
Like living underground
Some plants – enjoy being
Outside, like trees and bushes, whilst others like
Indoors, mostly because of the weather – all are
Linked by the substance around their roots
Perhaps they’re not
Everybody’s cup of tea
They’re downright dangerous
People think that their
Eggs and larvae will eat through the house
Some forget –
They’re not termites – they prefer the soil.
Put in context though – If they weren’t there
Everyone of the animals that eats these insects would
Suddenly find they’re not around – and then soon they would go
Then what would you do ?
In the green of the park
Never miss a moment
Vast numbers of creatures live
In every nook and cranny across the field of grass
Some, sleep in the wood – whilst others live
In the ground, pushing up the grass you play on
Birds nest hide away – but you have to
Look closely after grabbing their food they hide
Enjoy your game of Hide and seek – with such luck – you might get a peek!
Another Photographic from the archive – without the need for a soaking at any of the Zoo’s in the Northwest of England!
Amazing what you can do with a magazine and some toy figures….

Riding around in Outer Space
Salford, 27th May 2017
A tale of early morning – beyond the window
As luna heads off to bed
and the stars drift off to sleep
the feathers start a moving
on the slates and tiles.
Discussions on the latest morsel
available today down by the quay
whilst little sparrows duck and dive on
new shoots of grass on the lawn, they see
Awaiting arrival of milk on the mat
getting to the silvertops before the cat
and heading in the air for a stretch of the wings
collective chorus engaged in a sing.
#coloryourworld #cyw #timberwolf
The forest call
is heard across the trees
mother and father wolf, are teaching their cubs
bears and panther may assist, but
every wolf cub in the pack knows
real learning comes from mum and dad
when the time is right to spread their paws
only the cubs themselves will know
life beyond the pack doors can be hazardous – but
friends can be found for life there

Another original scribble from the pen of inkdrop, wi a little imagery from google….messed about by yours truly
#colouryourworld #cyw #tropicalrainforest #poetry #art #nature
A place the wild things call home
greenery up and down the land
from the tiniest of bugs to man’s cousins
they all live here
co – existing under the shelter of mother natures clouds
and whilst little ones play in watery lagoons
others sleep in treetops – till the rising of the moon
