A colourful triolet

A triolet, written by inky as part of a writing exercise

This band of colour

of various tones

It’s spectrum seems much fuller

this band of colour

Reds are rampant, Blues much buller

in its wavelength of zones

This band of colour

of various tones

Taste

I

Bitter, Salty, Sweet or Sour

Sensations landing on your tastebuds

What is that wonderful fruity flavour

It’s on the tip of your tongue

but you haven’t said it yet

II

Raspberry Jacket and Banana Shirt

with trousers and shoes to match

maybe it’s the height of fashion in the magazines

certainly makes you talk of the town on the shopping run

III

Country or Town

Suburbia or out in the sticks?

Cottage, Terrace, Mansion or Shed ?

Choice of Home – is down to you

but it’s not everybody’s cup of tea

Manatee

#CYW #Manatee

Painting of a manatee….by inky (original image c/o Bing)

Living under water

Looking after the bed

Making sure he and his family are fed

Keeping the sea grass as short as can be

the underwater moo – moo – the manatee

Laser Lemon

#Coloryourworld #Cyw #Laserlemon

Whatever you do

be careful with that zingy coloured fruit

as you carve through the peel for its zest

it’ll come back at you as fast as lightning

blink – and you’ll miss it as it flies headlong toward your eye

it’s a flavour that’ll make your tongue sing

and bring a tang to any fruit pie

but watch out – its a fruit that’ll fight back!

Jungle Grass

#Coloryourworld #CYW #junglegreen

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the garden

Up shoot the blades from that packet you bought from the DIY Store

Not like your regular grass – this lot grow an awful lot faster

Going up as high as a giraffe’s neck

Local’s wonder where you disappeared to

Encapsulated by grass as you sit on your garden chairs

Jazzberry Jam

#CYW #Jazzberryjam

Jump and jive

as the berries do their thing

zipping around

zestily with the sugar

becoming an exceptional spread

expect to find in jam butties up and down the land

revelling in the same place as the

raspberries and strawberries – tween two pieces of bread

yipping and zipping a taste around as you eat

Hot Magenta

#CYW #HotMagenta

Salford Street sign – in Hot Magenta

Its not what you’d call a subtle colour

and it couldn’t be called pink or purple

a fiery marriage where red meets blue

but mother nature seems to like

using their off spring to bring a bit

of eye catching colour to the garden

look around you’ll see it every where else too

in signs, on walls and in windows

the future’s bright – the future’s …. Magenta

Paper

#fowc #paper

pulped and rolled out wood chip

a marvellous media to receive the

pens contents

even if the colour is

red , blue, yellow or green

Cornflower

#CYW #Cornflower

colourful flowers crowded on the corner

cared for by the colourful yellow insect

collecting copious cups of nectar

checking each and every petal to

create honey from the cornflowers, back in the hive
