Chicken Soup

#octpowrimo #soup #chicken

Its been cooking on the hob for a while now

blue gas flames keeping the cooking going

while the flavours mingle and merge

the star of the show has been bathing in a warm bath

while her co-stars have been cooking in the broth

carrots and onions, parsnip and turnip

together with the occasional green

regional variations see peppers and tomatoes

and perhaps the addition of garlic

(just don’t tell the seniors – that ain’t “northern”)

pearl barley or noodles give it bulk

served up in a bowl with warm crusty bread

a definite antidote to the retreating mercury

and the weather outside

Ripples II

Cascading towards

Terra Firma

humble little water drops

head for the earth

Liquid drops

hit liquid puddles

trapped among the tarmac

creating movement down the street

Perfect Circles

move outwards

growing bigger

before merging in the puddle

Emerging

#Writephoto #Emerging

Everybody – keep calm

may as it seen – it looks like a giant coming through the wall

every forester knows who it is – its Pan!

reviving the trees and preparing them for autumn

green grasses being pushed up by his fingers

it might come as a shock – but hes a busy guy this time of year

note how the seeds are opening up and falling to

ground ? Thats all down to him

Autumn Leaves Cutout, Created by Inky

I’d call it the colour of autumn

a sign from the leaves on the trees

that winter is on its way

the mercury is retreating ,

and something a little colder is replacing

the warm colours

its pleasing to the eye

for it is the last we’ll see of the deciduous leaves

till spring

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

Blown Away

#Leaves #Autumn #Wind #Kite #writeclub

A response to this weeks write club theme – there will be more, thanks to lockdown!

You could tell it was the first day of Autumn

the four winds were having a wail of a time

with the things their friends had left them

It wasn’t Christmas , but it might well have been

for as well as the brown, yellows and golds

the trees had left them something – Red and Blue

So instead of lifting the sparrows around

they decided to play with the thing they had found

and kids from their windows spotted at night

the winds playing happily with their red and blue kite

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

Changing colours

#Seasons #Autumn #Poetry #Nature

Acer’s changing colour scheme (Image by Inky, Camera: Sony H3311)

A Sign that winters on the way

Up in the trees, the leaves colours are changing

There hangin’ on to their branches for dear life but

Unless you haven’t noticed – greens have been swapped for

Mostly Reds and Browns, with yellows inbetween

Note though – occasional splashes of crimson – Christmas coming early ?

Change in the weather

Salford, 28th August 2020

The bird’s seem to have got the message

The mercury is in retreat

A nip in the air – you’re feeling

As you’re heading down the street

Clouds of grey are gathering

waiting for their time

to sprinkle their raindrops down on the ground

blocking out the sunshine

And while cold air for autumn

seems to be the norm

our feathered friends have headed off

someplace tropical and warm

Don’t Fret though – as soon as the sunshine burns

those feathered friends, who flew off will return

land with little uns – who will have grew

onto a patch of green grass nearby you
