Old Bear

#Octpowrimo #Childhood

old bear – colour pencil drawing created in painter by inky

A bit rough round the edges

but he’s still as loveable as ever

now sat in the corner with the newer toys

a compendium of memories from days gone by

companions and confidante

when the darkness falls

or the ghosts come to town unexpectedly

best thing of all – he’ll always be there when you need him

Porridge

Salford, 27th July 2020

Winter warmer ?

fills the tum at any time of year

bringing a glow of contentment

with every loving spoonful

tasty treat at any time of day

perfect with honey, cinnamon, or even chocolate

keeps your “inner bear” happy

and brings a glow from your nose to your toes

Matters of persuasion

were easy for Mrs Polar Bear

But on this occasion

No matter how hard she tried

the seal wouldn’t come out

of the larder

“Sorry Kids….its Fish for tea again!”

The Rumble

What’s that noise

i hear coming from down the stair ?

someone will have do be aware

everyone knows it can’t be a bear

their sleeping on pillows or on nearest chair

so tip-toeing down stairs little toes do creep

to find their dad on the sofa sound asleep

Furry Bear

#Cyw #Fuzzywuzzybrown

Sat by his cave , somewhere in the zoo

a relative of your old pal – winnie the pooh

climbing his branches , carefully placed

and giving his luncheon a bit of a taste

looks out at the crowd like it’s a TV

and then he goes off – in search of honey

#Aurora #Weekend #Writing #Prompt

A weekend writing prompt from https://Sammiesscribbles.wordpress.com

Poem or Prose in 28 Words – Okay!!!!

Polar bears are partying

under nights light show

the snow is twinkling

with various different colours

moving about on ice

like the mirrorball chasing

the disco floor beams

Animals Memories Poetry Zoo

At the zoo

Zoo

A poem , written on a visit to Edinburgh zoo, with my nephews and the rest of the family

I went to the zoo today,

Saw a small elephant play.

A Tiger with stripes and great big paws

and a Lion with Mane and great big claws!

but that wasn’t everything i saw

Today

Went to the Zoo today,

Saw a spotted leopard sleeping in a bush

as a black panther hid among the brush

and cubs with their mums in such a rush

Today

I went to the zoo today,

and saw the chimps and monkeys at play

Gorillas on trees, swatting off fleas

and Marmosets hanging off branches by their knees!

Today

I Went to the zoo today,

saw buzzards and other birds of prey

‘gainst grand scottish hills

enjoying their scraps and swoops and spills

as i ate my lunch from a restuaurant grill

today

I went to the zoo today,

and saw other animals play.

Saw a Golden Bear, swinging from a tree,

and Monkeys and Gibbons eating their tea,

(Loads of cheeky Chimpanzees!)

and Penguins underwater – like in the sea

swimming past windows – and looking at me

Today

Acrostic Growing up Learning Leisure Life Toys

Knit

Knights of the realm could be toppled by this – but

Not my mum, or my aunties or Nanna

Its where i learned some very basic steps

To create a scarf for my teddy bear.

To be honest, the twists and turns of loops and purls were

Extremely difficult, but by the end of the month – i’d

Done one that was just the thing for a bear in the cold

Rescued from the reject bin

Salford, 17th November 2017

Patchedupbear

 

Imperfection

A little dusty here or there

his coat could do with a mend

stuffing coming from a paw

this old bear needs a friend

 

See all the animals are off to the shops

apart from those that look like they’ve been dropped

now little bear, he wouldnt really mind

if the factory would be a little bit kind

 

A button for his jacket

and some thread for his paw

and a chance to be hugged

nothing less, nothing more

 

But just as factory is being shut down

a little lad is being shown round

over by bin – he sees the bear’s frown

and little bears luck is turned around

 

For in days to come, what fun there will be!

With new tops and buttons – and teddy bears teas…

He may be imperfect – said the boy as he roamed

but he’s my favorite bear – as they head off for home!
