Standing Stones (Image S.C. Vincent)


During certain times of the year

A number of revellers can be found

Notably dancing around the odd standing stone

Celebrating a harvest or maybe a god or two

Expecting good things in the months to come

Musical

Monday 30th December 2019

Sat up in the gods, or in the stalls

enjoying the vibe of the tunes

nailing together the storyline and

sewing up all the loose threads

as you watch the actors tell the tale, you

tap away in rhythm with the cast

it wont be long till you join in with the rest

on the request of one of the actors on stage – as the

next thing you know – you’re leading the chorus

A heart of fire

That wasn’t dinner that’s burning away

Truth is you had me at – “Hello”

Tomorrow they say is another day, so

Tonight we’ll dance to the light of the moon and let

Tomorrow’s arrival take its time

Retro

In response to Fandango’s One word Challenge

They say if you can remember the sixties – you weren’t there

but fashion’s a fickle thing

Millennials walking down to the disco

in an homage to their Mums and dads

with some wide flares and knee high boots

listening and dancing to tunes on played on vinyl

that mum danced with dad when they were young

there’s something missing with that digital stuff

no feel, snap , crackle or pop

hearing the groove from the record player – its top!

Celebration

Another piece from Inky, in response to richa’s Freedom of Expression Challenge

Crack open the party poppers, for its an

Extra special day today

Lots of people are coming to share in

Excitement, in honour of somebody who’s having a really significant

Birthday….

raise the roof

and dance till you drop….

tell the celebrant how loved they are

on their very special day – and

never forget to enjoy yourselves too!

Warehouse

Salford (Via Trafford Park), 3rd September 2018

 

This is the place

where mighty ships cargo

lay resting after its journey

after a long ride on the waves

 

Men toiled in the heat

as silent shipping crates

moved to the sound of the warehouse mice

avoiding the company cat

 

Inwards and Out

the orders of the day

some on road – some on rail

having come in from sail

 

To be changed in an instant

to wear or to eat

grain for the flour mill

or silk for the mayors seat

 

Changes in time led to changes afoot

as sons and daughters move on in their new fancy boots

dancing away to a shanty or two

like their elders before them – they think that its new!

Dancing snow

Falling from the sky 🌌 above

Little flakes of ice blue snow dance

As the western wind 💨

Keeps them moving in the air

Each one heading for an individual

Space, somewhere on the ground

Atmosphere

Atmospheric

lighting-18

Cast that whitelight through the prism

and let the colours scatter, we’ll be

reeling and a rocking , jumping and a jiving

under the rainbow of coloured lights till morning

maybe we’ll meet some one special –

bopping to the beat – its quite an

atmosphere

Tripping the light fantastic

Dancing

Daintily passing over the polished wood floor

are two pairs of feet, skipping happily across it

never seen together before – they haven’t a

care or a worry – just so long as the girl is happy

in her boyfriends arms, Dancing the

night away together – following each others

groove under the lights

Trance

The music and the lasers are rounded on you

Reality is – they’ve got you in their spell

As you dance around the disco following the haze

Not knowing when to stop

Creating mayhem on the floor chasing the lights – no

Exception – you’ll dance till you drop
