Golden

#CYW #Gold

There’s nothing better than a summer sky

warm coloured tones of

corn or wheat growing in the farmers field

or maybe the thought

of sinking your toes into warm golden sands

before dipping them in the sea

breakfast dinner or tea – wonderous eggs

dipped with bread soldiers

for an afternoon feast

Tribal

#Fowc #Football #Soccer #Rugby

Two crowds sit on their

Respective rumps, cheering on the warriors

In their tribes colours Red or Blue

By the end of the first act

A tribe at one end of the ground is jubilant

Leaping in the air – whilst the other isn’t so happy

Subtle

#fowc #subtle

It had to be said, the fashionistas in your crowd

didn’t like you in that shirt

the colour was too deep

for you – they said

But that never stopped you

for the next morning you returned

wearing something new

or so they said

Same shirt, Brighter pants

Subtle changes made them glance

As the girls all cheers your latest style

and the boys all hung round for a while

Brush

#fowc #brush

Built from an animals hair

Relaying the colours of the rainbow, from palette to canvas

Upward and downward movement, bringing objects into view , while

Sweeping movements give an element of speed

Held in the hand of the master, that’s quite a picture that’s brought to life

Electric Lime

Elevated in its Coloured

Leaves brighter than your oaks , ashes or sycamore

Emitted Luminescence – it would probably light up in the dark

Creating a lovely neon effect

To some insects – its a dream plant – saying “come and eat me”

Reality – the glow tells them to stay away

In case the leaves make them ill – only the bravest

Caterpillar dares to have a chomp

Christmas

New Years Day

They celebrated a new decade with a bit of a bang

in the air rose the golden streamers

new year arriving as they lit up the midnight sky

sensational colours illuminating the city

everyone watching as the clock sounded and they

lit up the sky as colourful as a Christmas tree

Desert Sand III

#Cyw #DesertSand

people did not know

where it travelled quickly from

coming in darkness

Mighty chariots

Once painted by the frost

Now covered in sand

Roadsweepers Smile at

Opportunity to build

Coins in the piggybank

While down on the shore

the dunes off the north coast

grew taller a bit

Dandelion II

Down in the family garden

a roaring yellow flower lives in the borders

next to the hyacinths, roses, and tulips

Don’t think this is your standard “Weed”

each one of these has their own shape and colour

liked when the mane disappears and the seed heads transform

into something more light and fluffy

on the right days these travel through the air – when

new yellow flowers begin to grow.

Cerulean

A Wave - Cerulean Blue Colour

#CYW #Colour #Ocean #Blue #Octpowrimo

It’s that colour you see far off

when you’re sat on the beach

looking at the horizon

and you’re looking at the water far away

Could it be that colour that

entered the sky when the

roundness of the sun

ups and leaves the sky

leaving it darker with only

earths moon in the sky to provide

a light on the ground below ?

new moons shine on this colours curtain

Bench

#Park #Bench #Outdoors #octpowrimo

There’s too much noise in the world today

too much confusion, hurry and bustle

arguing over the price of a brew

as they all give their opinion

Its time to stop,

take a moment, in pleasant surroundings

watch the flora and fauna around you

enjoy the spectrum of the seasons

Time to breathe, slow down

keep calm and unwind

Be Nice to one another – Be Kind

and let Nature ease you from the Daily Grind
