Atomic Tangerine

Food, Fruit, Poetry

#CYW #Atomictangerine

Atomic Tangerine Rose created by inky in Photoshop elements

As they shook up the bottle of fizzy fruit juice

A fantastic reaction began

Bubbles rose up to the top of the bottle

Bursting to escape

Crazy idea – of the kids – was releasing the bottles

Cap – with the addition of air – reaction was complete

Destination for the neon orange liquid – No one knew – they all

Dived for cover – as fizzy orange rain fell

Expectation – the vegetable patch

End result – over Grandpa’s prize white roses

Violet Red

Art, Arts, Colours, Poetry

#coloryourworld #cyw #reds #violetred

Salford 10th April 2017


The tussle between the shades of red

began as they fought it out on the painters palette

ballet of an artistic nature

started at opposite ends of the rainbow

The bluer shade he stood his ground

as artists painted the flowers he’d found

but as pigment scarlet to pallet was fed

the cold shade turned a more warmer red

as red-violet flowers changed colours in bed

to a host of new flowers of violet red

#coloryourworld #cyw #shockingpink

luminosity released this

colour on the world

to highlight a word or two

is brilliant

carnations and roses in this colour


but was it fair to plaster it

across soccer and rugby shirts 👚

up and down the land

I prefer to see pink in my strawberry ice cream 🍦

but now it’s everywhere…shocking!

Midnight Blue

Salford Quays Holiday Inn, taken Late evening (p) Brian F Kirkham 2017


Maybe its the colour of the night sky itself

Its only when the sun goes to bed – does it appear

Dozens , no thousands of stars peppering the dark blue

Night after Night, showing planets and constellations

Inky coloured skies, occasionally diffused by sodium lights below

Great gods from Aries to Orion , telling tales in the sky

Heavens Above! It’s a great sight to watch

The constellations moving in the night sky.
