Drifting off

#Dreams #Writeclub

Salford, 30th April 2020

Drifting into a lovely dream

resting on a hundred or more feathers and a few more bouncy springs

in time i’m picking toffee apples off a nearby tree, and

four and twenty cartoon animals are joining me

to have the wonder of all picnics

in time – i’ll be going back to the run-of-the-mill routine

not until the alarm bell

goes off beyond the garden

The Moon, Sky, Stars and Sea

Salford 27th April 2020

#Napowrimo #writeclub #Dreams #Metaphor

The moon is a bright shiny Ten Pence piece

The sky is a furry dark blanket

The stars are little sequins reflecting on that blanket

The sea is a vast mirror, reflecting whats above

The Moon is a beacon for space travelling mice

The sky is the map they use to travel about

The stars are the destinations on that map

The sea the place they hide their spaceship

The moon lights up the sky at night

The sky keeps a kite up in flight

The stars play with the new thing in the sky

The sea watches on, and moves on by

Lego Man – Out in Space! – Image by Brian F Kirkham

He always wanted to travel

Lego man living on the shelf

his greatest descent – not a fall from grace

but sent into flight from a feather duster

till one day he flew

onto a book that made his dreams

into reality (of sorts) – as he landed and

walked into a patchwork of stars

Dreams – they form your life’s ambition

Resting as you do on your quilts position

Even as the darkness falls

A wonderous formation of thought does call

Maybe your dreams may all come true

Some require effort – that’s down to you

Ascend

Ascend

Adventure can be

seen anywhere in the house by little

children, as they

elevate themselves one foot at a time to

nightime stories and

delightful dreams under the watch of their teddy bears

Cotton candy

Salford 9th April 2017

a sweet poem for the color your world challenge by inkdropk

#poetry #confectionery #cyw #coloryourworld #cottoncandy #candyfloss

 

whispy wires of candy

softly rising into a soft tornado

gathering in pace as it goes

 

sensational sugar collides

against the  tornado catcher

fallen to be reused again

 

whisps gather pace

collecting speed and sugar

as a sweet cirrus begins to grow

 

floating sweet dreams

fly high in the air

caught by the ice cream man

 

man looking in has to use great skill

to gather the coloured pink cloud

to create smiles on waiting faces
