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

Furry Bear

#Cyw #Fuzzywuzzybrown

Sat by his cave , somewhere in the zoo

a relative of your old pal – winnie the pooh

climbing his branches , carefully placed

and giving his luncheon a bit of a taste

looks out at the crowd like it’s a TV

and then he goes off – in search of honey

Forest Green

#CYW #ForestGreen

For years you’ve seen this glorious colour

out in the wilds beyond your door

rolling hills and valleys

encapsulated in it by

swathes of green grass and

trees as far as the view will take it

Grown from a simple cutting

reaching up high to the nearest cloud

everyone enjoys walking among them

each looking about to see which animal enjoys the

nuts and berries grown from the branches

Fern

#coloryourworld #CYW #Fern

An acrostic for the Fern Colour on Tourmalines Coloryourworld challenge

Flowing fronds of green

each one coming from a central point

reminding me of an octopus or squid –

not squelchy, but just as many arms!

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

Eggplant

4th January 2020

Everyone our way knows it as an aubergine

grilled and served up with

grated cheese and tomato

purple tinge to its black skin – never known once grilled

leaping to life in any greek dish

and lipsmackingly wonderful on a summers day

note though – best served with oil and herbs

tastes wonderful with a drop of house red

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

Denim

#fowc #cyw #coloryourworld #denim

Definitely the workman’s favourite trouser

Everyone knows – each pair is

Not to be sniffed at – cut and crafted

In a style , everyone seems to love

Movement to suit the wearer – mostly hugging

Denim

Salford, 10th December 2019

#Denim #CYW

Definitely the toughest of blues

Everyone has a pair of these hardwearing trousers

Noticeable by the Metallic buttons and press studs holding the pockets in place

It’s not surprising these workers trousers have become a fashion piece

Maybe its because they last longer than their tailor cut cousins

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.
