Timberwolf

There’s something unique

in this relation of your pet pooch

maybe its the way they

band together when they’re searching for supper,

everyone helping out in the pack

roaming the forests as one –

when they’ve found their food

old and young share

looking after one another –

family – like you and yours, Mum, Dad, Brothers, Sisters and all

Universal Change

#Character #Space #Universe #writeclub

Universe , painted (image by inky from an image from Google)

While the planets

Go round the Sun (our star)

and far off systems

go round their own stars

something keeps

space and time moving

The old man of space

keeps mother milky way , Andromeda

and her other brothers and sisters

turning while he watches on

There have been times

when he really wanted a change of scene

but instead – he kept going

in the same direction

So don’t be dismayed – if the stars out at night

seem out of place – and not quite right

Our dear old universe just want’s to play

It’s why all the patterns don’t look the right way

Two brothers

#octpowrimo #dogs #pointers

Two dogs…twins ? By inky

Been apart for a while , but

Really you never forget family

Out on the green fields

Two siblings meet, for the first time in a while

Happy to see each other, with

Eager calls and sniffs

Ready to run after one another for

Simply enjoying the moment

Two Brothers

A tale of two neighbourhood cats – c/o my profile on allpoetry.com

Sat on a grassy spot,
someplace by the house
two brothers sit on the outside porch
dreaming about a mouse

They’re waiting for their mum
to serve up summat for tea
and have been playing in the backyard
rolling in the grass with glee

Prowling through the green grass
as not to be seen or heard
pouncing on patches of lawn
hunting for a bird

Climbing on tables and chairs
in their fur all black and white
pondering what’s their catfood tray
thinking – what’s for tea tonight ?

Swimming Lessons

Salford Quays, 14th July 2018

a tale of the first time in the canal…from one of the goslings….Interpreted by Inky 🙂

It’s a bit hard stepping out

from the little nursery pool

to the great big vast waterway

but at least my family are nearby

mum and dad watching proudly on

no water wings required

chasing my brothers and sisters about the water

just flap my feathered feet and watch me go….

Two Quarrelling Brothers

DSC_0704.JPG

I sat watching by the window

as two quarrelling brothers

traded blows over a tree outside

both lay claim on this tall green beauty

and each tried their hardest to get it for themselves

but as day turned into night

the tree stayed rooted to its spot

and neither brother got what they wanted

opting to play with some fallen leaves instead
