Orchid

#cyw #orchid

Over time the orchid plant

Releases the colour hidden away in its stems

Crafting flowers of such beauty, you would have thought

Heaven’s angels had crafted each one

It takes time to grow an orchid with such colour and beauty, but its

Definately worth every second waited

Youth

#FOWC #YOUTH

You’re only as young as you feel, they say

Of course, you get older each day

Unless of course, you apply

Those lotions, potions, perfumes and aftershaves

Holding on to the fountain of youth ? Hardly

Held in Time

Looking in the mirror

I count the creases

in this once youthful face

Time is a fickle friend

Where is that younger me ?

The one with hopes and dreams

And yet, when we meet

it seems time stands still

for the girl of fifteen

Essence of Youth ?

from the sea of time

or frozen in a moment ?

And the one thing that gets me

as the seconds move on

Your beauty hasn’t changed

Looking : A Found Poem

#Love #Romance #Poetry

Salford 14th January 2019

another found poem by me via Spike Milligans Box 18

I’ve stopped looking for that diamond

that brightens up my day

the beauty of your eyes

still capture me in the evening light

as we pass each other by

and memories of walking through the daisy patch

still return – fresh in the mind

Flaunt

Flaunt

Manchester, 8th May 2018

For some its a time, to say

Look at me

As the peacocks and peahens , strut their stuff

Until the departure of jack frost, they were quite – “Reserved”

Now they fluff their feathers, on the Northern shore

Till their preening catches a prospective mates eye

Perfume

Perfume

A poem written by inkdrop for the daily post : Perfume

Salford (via Heraklion) , 10th May 2017

Perhaps it was her eyes that first attracted me

Everyone stopped – freeze frame as we met

Reaction to that wonderful smile – unabashed, but

From that day on, she seemed to be everywhere

Unusually, i couldnt see her around, was my

Memory playing tricks on me ?

Even the blossom’s sent a message of her

Magnificient

All the girls on the Cretan sands go to great lengths to highlight their beauty

Understandably, its what grabs the boys attention

Veering an eye towards the girls on the sands

Everyone recognises a precious gem on the beach

Long flowing locks and Lashes to attract the most shortsighted beefcake on the

Line of white sands

opposite the cerulean blue sea

unusually – she’s sat – mopping up the rays on her own – but soon

she’ll be sipping cocktails with her new beau by the bar

Identity

Identity

It’s what makes me

Don’t mistake it

Everybody has one

No one can deny – it’s what makes you unique

To the twinkle of your eyes or the beauty of your face

Identifying you for who you are…

Together a hundred (or maybe a thousand) little things that make

You, brilliant.

Hidden

Beauty hid away
surreptitious
behind your writing
desk.

Masked, Disguised, Veiled
behind
paper and ink
decorated.

I wondered around
looking
for a vision
hidden

And as time
passed
you revealed yourself
in words
