The Wall

Buildings, Poetry

Chapel Street, Salford 2018

They reclaimed the bricks and numbered each one

as the diggers did their thing

the builders saving a theatre wall

you could almost hear them sing

 

artwork by the cathedral doors

in colours you’d never expected before

bright neon on the way to town

spread across bricks orange/brown

 

numbers alive – a wonderful dream

a sight like Neapolitan ice – cream

and for four days – the bricks were talk of the town

before the builders tore them back down

Salford 6th September

I can see them now

scattered around on the floor

those little bricks that stuck together

some square – some rectangles

some red, some yellow, some blue, some green

we made trees and houses

for the little lego people

that rode around in the cars

on the stubbily green grass outside the house

we’d just built

Thursday 26th April 2018

Camera used : Nikon D3100 with 50mm Lens

Sat in the toolshed (my workspace, where i compose this blog)

I took this photo in response to the photo challenge Lines as theres an awful lot of them in it.

with the feathered friends elsewhere – i saw the lines of solar panels on the roof – all set out in formation

then there’s the lines of branches in the tree behind the house

Lines of tiles lining the roof in very tidy order

and last but not least the lines of bricks in the end wall of the semi detached house
