Furry Bear

#Cyw #Fuzzywuzzybrown

Sat by his cave , somewhere in the zoo

a relative of your old pal – winnie the pooh

climbing his branches , carefully placed

and giving his luncheon a bit of a taste

looks out at the crowd like it’s a TV

and then he goes off – in search of honey

Lightness

#Octpowrimo #Lightness

Salford, 29th October 2019

As summer draws to a close

and green leaves turn to red

the leaves of the less evergreen

aided by wind rain and streams

float off in a dream, light as a feather

to their final resting spot

where they leave a mark of colour

on the paths around them

Copper

In response to Thursday Photo Prompt

The woodland’s changing colour

from lush juicy greens to rustic reds

and painting a picture with a message

on the woodland paths

with each colourful crunch – “Winter’s coming”

Burnt Sienna

Salford, 15th September

#CYW #BurntSienna

I recall a leather chair

the smell of it as I sat in it in the morning

it’s sound as I got my back into its folds

it squeaked – like a mouse looking for food

Looking out beyond the glass

in a warm seat

looking out for snowmen

beyond the garden fence

Sitting there quietly

watching the snowflakes

fall to the ground

whilst warming my hands on a hot mug

Muddy Footprints

#CYW #Brown #Wet #Mud #Footprints #Camping

Footprints on wet mud

Camping out in the wilds, has its disadvantages

As the weather can be particularly nasty

Making your way across the field to the washroom as

Persistant little raindrops land on your head

If you gave it some thought – you would have moved the tent

Now everyone will know who disturbed their sleep – as you’re

Going to leave a trail – right up to your tent!

Brown

#CYW #Brown #Birds #Wildlife #Salford

Brown Feathered Canada Geese

Bringing an aire of nature to the painters palette

Red mixes with yellow and that colour goes darker as

Orange meets black and blue

Wild Animals have this colour in their fur , feathers and quills

Notably the geese who fly across town

Hope you liked this short acrostic for #CYW – Here’s another link to a poem with a brown theme – https://inkdrops.blog/2019/09/08/chocolate-4

Beaver

Behind that pile of logs

Expect to find

A master dam builder

Versatile in river control

Examining each branch, log and twig, before laying them over the

River Bank, to create his construction

Toast

Triangular wonder

cooked by the heat of a thousand suns

in a silver toaster

warming and turning

soft white (or maybe brown) bread

golden and toasty

Yellow butter melts

as it lands on the surface

sinking slowly at the sound of the pop

of a jar opening and the imminent arrival

of the strawberry jam.

Autumn leaves

Another post from inky via allpoetry.com

The squirrels are a scurrying

amongst the fallen leaves

searching out the conkers

hiding in the trees eaves

Carpet, multi coloured

paints a walker a scene

an autumnal view, that carries a few

colours, of red, gold, brown, green

And as bird watcher goes a twitching,

the animals go have some lunch

As the watcher goes round, he cant help but make a sound

as the leaves underneath him go crunch

But lets give our thanks to the Autumn,

who’s colours are warm and so bright,

as Winter arrives, the frost and snow thrives

turning the leaves on th’floor white!

Frying

Fry

Out in the Grecian sun

whilst sausages are cooking in the chefs pan

turning brown from pink

the restaurants recipients

are lying on sun loungers

or sat on coral sand beach

worshipping Ra above

in a vain attempt

to mimic their luncheon.
