In pieces (again)

#Writeclub #Napowrimo

Over at the toy store

in buckets of colours mixed

are pieces of your lego man

waiting to be picked

from builder to spaceman

and cowboy and all

they’re put together by the kids

sitting about an inch tall

and the adventures they go on

are all down to you

as they drive a fire engine

or look after a zoo

Just be careful, where you take them

and keep hold of their threads

or they’ll meet with an accident

and could lose their heads

Point of evaporation

#writeclub

a response to a writeclub prompt by inky

The heat of the kitchen

was the moment

The hydrogen twins

departed from their oxygen mum

And went their own way

Flying around the air

In an attempt to find their own space

Pattern Created by Inky

Pictures positioned in such

a way , they replicate

themselves. Travelling from east

to west across the page creating designs

everyone can enjoy

rolls of colour to be enjoyed, on curtains, cushions or quilts

night and day throughout the home

Fantasy

#SoCS #Fan

Salford 6th June 2020

For many years , i’ve been a fan of the fantasy genre.

as Local folk writers with hi tales of mystical lands

near to, or in the vicinity of my home garden

terrific and tantalizing tales of witches and wizards

all playing round in a coppice or wood

some tales are close to the truth –

those up the road by the pennines will tell you that. And

you’ll hear the ghosts and ghouls every time all hallows eve comes about

and enjoy letting your imagination go wild

Veiled

#writephoto #veiled

Up on the hillside, who is that

hiding up in those misty hills

are we being over looked

by giant’s giving us chills ?

for out there in the distance

characters standing still

leaving us nothing but shadows

only caught by pencil or quill

A cast of thousands

#fowc #cast #thousands

from an ant trying to save the world

to a familiar mouse in a sorcerers suit

they sit on my bookshelf

awaiting their curtain call

a cast of thousands awaiting

their appearance on a digital stage

Middle

Piglet in the Middle , (Image : Brian F Kirkham 2019)

Top shelf of life ?

hardly!

reality is it might look like he’s in the middle, but

everyone knows he’s the one they want to

engage with.

Pantomime

#FOWC

Pull up a chair, take in a show

As you watch a tale, read to little ones at

Night-time,

There’s a range of characters

On the stage, in bright coloured attire

Making Mirth , for your entertainment

If you’re lucky – they’ll be a

Musical number or maybe magic tricks and

Everyone enjoys the antics of the panto animals

Mr Milnes tale , captured perfectly

In a moment

Notes of colour , delicately transferred onto

It’s material base

As models go, it sings the

Tale of the Hundred Acre Wood, in wonderful wonder

Uniquely created for a special store,

Reds through to Violets bring characters to life

Exceptional.
