Radikal

#CYW #RadicalRed

You could call the mural – sensational

most definately original

a throwback to the days of Orwell and the Wigan Pier

Modern day politicos and trendsetters

Painted on a canalside wall

More Lenin than Liverpool

and while the decorators decide what to do with it

the artist has achieved his aims

people are talking – over a splash of red

Radical

#CYW #RadicalRed

They wanted to change the system

and united under a flag

led by men of learning

fighting wasn’t their bag

so instead they marched the streets

in order to reach a change

and workers shut the factories

till their voices were in range

The voices , sole , were low in noise

but soon became a crowd

till one day they reached the gates of power

and called out as one aloud

And the rulers , they had to listen

as the wheels of industry stopped

and the army weren’t getting their pay

so the walls defending them dropped

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

Purple Mountain

#CYW #Killarney #PurpleMountainMajesty

Purple Mountains, Killarney

Perhaps the imps were out last night

up where the slate rocks lie

reactions to the sun falling on the hills

people are pleased with what they see on the eye

lilacs , lavenders and amethyst shades – all those and much more

everyone visiting loves the scene – so off they do explore

Plum

Perpetually found in a christmas pudding

luscious fruit sweet, with a stone in the middle

usually found in a jar in a jam or

made into a sauce and served with Dim Sum

Pink sherbet

#CYW #Pinksherbet

Someone should really have told you

how zingy that pudding really is

every day you headed for the ice cream cart

rounding on this raspberry combo

but your face – after the initial taste of the raspberries

engaged into full on scrunch mode as your

tongue took on the individual taste

Jazzy Doughnuts

A picture of two jelly donuts where one is cutted in half, showing jelly

Just look at it

a taste sensation

zesty and fruity fruit

zipped up in a sweet pastry pillow

best eaten after tea – but can be

eaten, scoffed or wolfed down at any time of day

rich red fruit at its centre

really nice with a warm cup of tea

yet you can also have it for a dessert!

Pink flamingo

#cyw #pinkflamingo #octpowrimo

playing around with his feathers

Balanced on one leg

Waiting for that moment

When the keeper comes in

And throws another shovel

Of fresh Morecambe shrimp

Into the water

Pine Green

#CYW #Pinegreen

Perhaps you would say

Its probably the most recognisable tree

Next to the horse chestnut and

English Oak – Its seeds hanging from its evergreen branches

Growing commences when these seeds find their way under ground

Released into the air slowly and then

Enjoying the journey towards the clouds

Expect a squirrel to use it for a home while birds

Nest in the higher branches above them

Piggy Pink

#CYW #Piggypink

Pink Piggy Cakes

Pink piggies like the ones in the farm

on a plate with instant charm

really tasty with their marshmallow noses

krafty icing with a number of poses

perhaps you’d be worried – about poor mr pig

in fact – when i tell you – you might do a jig

news is – i can tell you – that no pigs come to harm

king of his field – is still sat in the farm
