Retreat

#writephoto #retreat

The retreat (Image :KL Caley)

Sometimes, there’s a need to

just get away from the hustle and bustle

of the big city.

Find somewhere

quiet and out of the way

and relax

where the air is fresh

the grass is green

and you’re free – from pressures of life

enjoying the peace

and the fresh air

and maybe a tasty bite or two

Watching the wildlife

taking a dip

before taking a dip, yourself

Hazard

Holes in the pavement

and black ice – dont really make good conditions for

zipping about on a winters morning

as one or the other will see you flat on your back or

rolling about on the floor – worse still – the

drop might see you in a hospital bed

Acrostic Drink Poetry

Tea

Taken at every time of the day

Especially in the Morning

At Breakfast Time

There are times when a cuppa can be quite a ritual

Enjoying sandwiches and cakes with

A Brew around four or five

Tea comes from different locations

Each has its individual flavour

Assam, Darjeeling or even Yorkshire….

Taken any other time of the day – its an

Escape from the daily grind

A moment to refresh – and enjoy a biscuit

Some say “take it easy”

even if the sunshine is full in the sky

destination sun lounger is the place to be

after all, you’re not working for a week or two

time to enjoy the sunshine

elongated on your own sunlounger

Vivid Fruit

Set among the apples , damsons and lemons

there’s always one fruit the children are drawn to

brightly coloured, and fitted easily in the hand

lots of little segments to enjoy in

a schooltime break

Acrostic Fun Poetry Schooldays

Battleships

#fowc #strategy

Set warships for design and for creativity

school fun in the playground

taking time out from spelling and sums

rolling out your fleet of ships

as you mark them out on your eight by eight grid

then you guess where your pal has hidden his

each marking the

guesses with a cross where each vessel is

you’ll play this all day – or until the schoolbell rings for class

Photography Poetry

Hard as nails

#SoCs #Nails

Raptor jet (Airfix) Built and photographed by inky

The pieces of the plane

snapped together quite remarkably

from propeller to wing to cockpit

it’s parts have kept together

locked in tight – no need for a hammer or nails

superglue ? redundant

it would take some serious force

for it (or any of it’s fellow squadron)

to lose their wings

though there is a case

gravity may play a hand

Holidays

Summer Break

Sitting in the garden

Playing with a ball

As Mum or dad

Call out – from beyond the hall

Excitement awaits – we’re off to the museums!

Down goes your head – you don’t want to see ’em

Of course, its not like you’re grateful – you’ve been there before

Up with your classmates – till gone half past four

The holidays are for fun – out in the fresh air!

! You’ll be going somewhere sunny soon – but you don’t care! !

Acrostic Food

Snack

Snack

Sent by the food gods

Nicely made treats from the pastry shop or Cafe

A thing to take off the edge – in that hour or two before lunch

Created by Artistes who know a thing or two about Sweets – now, is it

Krispy Kreme or a Gregg’s Doughnut with your cuppa ?

Air Snaps

Crisp

In the cold light of day

you could break off the mist

and eat it all up

 

Say that its biting

it keeps things fresh

not frosty at all

 

Just cold enough

to take the heat off

and highten tastebuds
