Pizzazz

Something to brighten up the borders

of your garden as the leaves on the trees start to

roll around in the autumn wind

the gardeners call it pink, the flower buffs call it purple

of course, while it’s still in

flower – nobody minds what shade it is – it still looks lovely by the lawn

Changing colours

#Seasons #Autumn #Poetry #Nature

Acer’s changing colour scheme (Image by Inky, Camera: Sony H3311)

A Sign that winters on the way

Up in the trees, the leaves colours are changing

There hangin’ on to their branches for dear life but

Unless you haven’t noticed – greens have been swapped for

Mostly Reds and Browns, with yellows inbetween

Note though – occasional splashes of crimson – Christmas coming early ?

Click

#Octpowrimo #Photography #Digital

I remember when

photos were stored away

on rolls of brown film

and getting the picture

required alchemy

Magic paper

bringing scenes of colour

to life onto

white backgrounds

with square borders

Trips to the chemist

a necessity

for those precious memories

of a warm summers day

to be brought to life

computer succeeds the chemist

speeding up the process

chemical symbols changed to 0s and 1s

delivered in a day

Smile!

you’ve got more pics in your hand

more memories to store

more smiles to save

Peach

#CYW #Peach

Autumn Red Peaches (Image by B.F Kirkham)

Picked from the trees in the hills of Asia

each fruit furry to the touch

and juicy with every bite – just watch out for the stone in the middle

can be eaten on its own, or with custard or cream

hot out of the oven – its wonderful in a pie or a flan

Pacific Blue

#CYW #PacificBlue

When i see you around

i’m reminded of warm summer days

and the waters of the ocean

lapping the sandy shore

Attracting the sportsmen

playing about for fun

in their watersports gear

Motorboats and Jetskis

tearing a white wave

through your dark blue waters

Your Colours more deep

than your Mediterranean cousin

but seamen still hang around your deep shades

hoping to land that one in a million catch

Brush

#SoCS #Brush

Stream of Consciousness Saturday Banner

Bringing a touch of colour to the paper

Reds through to violet as it passes through the brilliant white

Upmost care taken – not to cross any of the bands

Should they seep into the colour next door

Hairs of the brush given a good soak after the artwork’s complete

Mission control

#FDDA #Writingspace

A Corner of a room

prepared with paper , pens , coloured pencils and such

placed randomly around a silver coloured laptop

located by a local view

if needed , a nearby camera will provide visual cues

combined with words from a number of coloured notebooks

as the ideas form and come together like a rocket

the sky is the limit as

imagination bakes the ingredients and with a little tweaking

out of nowhere, a

new piece is formed for people to read…..Liftoff!

Popcorn Plant

#Writeclub #Popcorn

popcorn plant (illustration by inky)

Confusion reigned among the staff
in the garden centre
Curiously, the conkers they were growing
for selling in pots in the greenhouse
had grown, no sprouted….no rocketed
into something a little more colourful
a little more knobbly and a little more exotic
a lot more tropical and a little less green
i mean – leaves the colours of mixed fruit drops ?
and poking through the glass towards the sky
you couldn’t call them unseen – definately unmuted
as the kids visited every blossom time
picking off popcorn from the branches and petals

Shimmer

Beach (Image : SC Vincent)

Sole observer watching by the shore, as

hopping and skipping towards the beach

in a race to get to him

many of Neptune’s and Ra’s children

move hop skip and jump creating colourful patterns

each one hoping they’ll get there first

racing bring smiles to all who see it

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
