Stacking

Stacked Stones – or Dwarvish Artworks ? (Image SC Vincent)

Up above the basalt hills

some creatures they were playing

they thought they’d be safe up high in the clouds

so they just carried on wi their stacking

Little flat and greyish rocks

stood on top of each other

one mountain dwarf enjoyed the fun

so he called on his brother

And together – they made something – oh so high

and other dwarves – round th’ hills – said they wanted to try

so they all joined in under cover of the cloud

and built something the village of dwarves were all proud

and to save the towers of which they had built

they left walkers message – down in the silt

“Artwork by mountain folk – please do enjoy”

“be careful around them – and do not destroy”

Foreboding

#promptuarium #picture #prompt

It hovered over the mountain

even on the sunniest of days

rainbows never ventured near

And rangers would keep a countin’

the numbers caught up in the loss of rays

as people would just disappear

Local ramblers stay on the ground

while trackers and huskies searched around

but apart from odd footprints – nothing to be found

Was something living up on that high ground

taking the climbers – without a sound ?

till they find out – they’re staying off that mound

Sweets

Cotton Candy

Crafted from wisps of warm sugar

out of the machine it forms

taking the shape of a cloud

the cloud rises on the warm air

on some occasion, it has to be caught in the

nick of time, before it floats off on its own

Could there be a treat sweeter than this

as the candyman catches the cloud

numbers of children watch as its

delivered on the stick, all

yelling they want one – its such a sweet favorite

Thoughts

#Thoughts #Bubbles #Marshmallows #Clouds

Salford 9th July 2018

The light little cirrus and stratus

help themselves to their

own little place in the sky

until the cloud departs they’ll be overlooked by the

great thinker of the skies himself – cumulonimbus – who’s

happily floating over the air

thinking about their next destination

some might call them Marshmallows, others call them ‘thought stores’
