Taste

I

Bitter, Salty, Sweet or Sour

Sensations landing on your tastebuds

What is that wonderful fruity flavour

It’s on the tip of your tongue

but you haven’t said it yet

II

Raspberry Jacket and Banana Shirt

with trousers and shoes to match

maybe it’s the height of fashion in the magazines

certainly makes you talk of the town on the shopping run

III

Country or Town

Suburbia or out in the sticks?

Cottage, Terrace, Mansion or Shed ?

Choice of Home – is down to you

but it’s not everybody’s cup of tea

Clear

Salford, 23rd January 2020

#fowc #clear

Cloudy skies today ? hardly

light from the sun falls down like raindrops

even the sky is a wonderful shade of blue

a warm and bright day

ready for a picnic ? we’re headed for the park

Shadow V.3

#FOWC #Shadow

A response by inky to Fandango’s One word challenge

Sunshine’s monochrome friend

Heavens Universal to animal, bird, reptile and human

As the sun shines its beams – it appears on the floor

Disappearing when the clouds cover it up

Of course – they disappear

When the sun goes behind – reappearing on a bright moon

Creating a buzz

4th September 2018

#Beeinthecity #Manchester #Buzz

A poem in honour of those colourful bees currently nesting in my city

The hive will be in Gtr Manchester till 23rd September – it’s well worth a visit.

(for those who haven’t read my #beeinthecity posts – they’re artworks!)

Banks-B , #Beeinthecity on Manchester’s Market Street

The hive arrived
Home for some bees
With artistic flair

Swarming around
City streets, with a
Hint of colour

Covering the sights
Of the county
North to south

Bringing smiles
From Salford’s quayside
To Manchester’s airport

Radiant

Radiant

Salford, 2nd April 2018

 

Candle

Radiant in the dawn of sunset

a candle lights the darkness

dim at first, but getting brighter

illuminating the building with its brothers and sisters

as power goes – it gives a torch a run for its money

not to mention the electricity grid

the fuses die ? – out comes the candles

Neon carrot 🥕

#coloryourworld #neoncarrot #cyw

The latest batch of carrots 🥕

in farmer 👨‍🌾 Giles field

are the brightest vegetables to be seen

and not easily concealed

for these orange carrots 🥕 are so bright

their tops can be seen in the field at night

he said he got the carrot seed

from a friend from out of town

(who really was from planet 🌎 x

and heading homeward bound)

but whilst the carrots grew on field

at night they were to wildlife revealed

so rabbits 🐰 mice 🐭 and hares all

in farmer Giles field are having a ball…

with the gigantic bright carrots Giles is selling for cash

in cakes, soups and salads and even as mash!

Outrageous

cyw-2017-badge

#OutrageousOrange #Coloryourworld #cyw

Outlandish – some call it, zesty – perhaps

Unless you lack the vision for colour – you’ll definitely see it

The fashionistas , look on – a mix of intrigue , happiness and horror

Riots must have taken place in a fruit canning plant

As there’s splashes of bold bright orange all over that dress

Grabbing the eye, definitely – but would you wear it, they ask

Everyone politely claps and smiles nicely

Of course, its the outfit the critics will talk about tomorrow

Until then – the barbed comments remain in their notebooks as

Summers latest trend walks boldly down the catwalk
