Clouds in blue sky (Image created in painter , photo by inky)

You just know it’s coming

there’s a patch of blue – but its covered in grey

lakes of water now pool in the recesses

of tarmac roads

the last of the water travels slowly

towards the open grid

while the other clouds tease you

to nip out without an umbrella

come out and play – they say

ready to throw a bucket or two

at you

Change in the weather

Salford, 28th August 2020

The bird’s seem to have got the message

The mercury is in retreat

A nip in the air – you’re feeling

As you’re heading down the street

Clouds of grey are gathering

waiting for their time

to sprinkle their raindrops down on the ground

blocking out the sunshine

And while cold air for autumn

seems to be the norm

our feathered friends have headed off

someplace tropical and warm

Don’t Fret though – as soon as the sunshine burns

those feathered friends, who flew off will return

land with little uns – who will have grew

onto a patch of green grass nearby you

Rainfall

Salford, 23rd August 2020

Moving across the sky

Magnificent clouds of grey

Move to offload their cargo

Angels tears dropping

As the creator drops something heavy

And says something angry (and naughty)

Collecting in crevices on community streets

Creating puddles and in some cases mini reservoirs

Children playing in plastic macs and colourful wellies

Catching the wind

Swifter than their feathered brethren – they

welcome the signs of a changing breeze

it means they’ll be off with their cousins the swallows

for some warm air , seeds and sunshine, whilst

taking occasional naps under leafy sunshades

Some might say they float in the air

when these birds have their wings stretched out

imminent signs of departure – remote

for they’ll need to fill their bellies

to have the energy to fly towards the warm sun

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

#Weather #Seasons #Summer #Acrostic

Summer sees me ignore the cirrus and and stratus

Taking in the rays peering through summers marshmallows

Reality is – something’s been smiling floating in the air

A smiling cloud, happy in the blue

Tears ? not today…and when Ra gets a little bit to fierce

A fluffy cloud and his chums are there to provide a bit of cover

Respite

#FOWC #Respite

How i wish the rain would give me a break

Even now, concentric circles are being created

In the wells and cracks of the tarmac outside

Garden’s might appreciate the water – but its not what i’d call

Hot, the rain is decidedly cold today

Hopes are, mother nature will provide a little respite

On which occasion – i won’t get drenched in the stairrods
