Weather Winter

waiting on the snow

#weather

There must be something

wrong with the thermometer

for the man at the met.office

is suggesting we all

wrap up snug and warm

in the next few days

His colleagues and pals

say “its too warm for snow”

but its hiding in the clouds

while the winds are a go

waiting for a mercury drop

when on the grasses and roofs it’ll stop

So while it’s in clouds

the wildlife will stay

having their fun and playing away

till the flakes of snow land on the ground

and they head for their nests and burrows around

Hazard

#fowc #winter #hazard

Holes in the pavement

and black ice – dont really make good conditions for

zipping about on a winters morning

as one or the other will see you flat on your back or

rolling about on the floor – worse still – the

drop might see you in a hospital bed

Ahead

#fowc #octpowrimo #ahead

Amazing isn’t it ? No Looking Back on the open road

Heading for the horizon with the wind behind you

Except – look out for those hazards

A road trip might be great at speed – but you never see the

Drop down the hole that’s coming your way

Seagulls Lament

#Promptuarium

ow

I suppose you thought that was funny ?

here I am sat by the bins

enjoying what could be my only meal for miles

and you decide to disturb my breakfast

Innocently enjoying the fish in the box

then over my foot comes this big heavy rock

expecting me to just fly away

I was too busy eating – no time to play

If I were human – I might have had words

but thing is being feathered – I’m only a bird

you wouldn’t want my beak coming round you to peck

so why use a big stone – I could have broke my neck!

I should count myself lucky – it wasn’t from a gun….

but disturbing my breakfast – wasn’t much fun

so i’ll return the favour – when you come back from the shop

expect something to land – coming down with a plop!

Bag o’ Pear Drops

#Poetry #Sweets #Confectionary

17th July 2018

Pear Drop Sweets, in Yellow and Pink
Pear Drop Sweets (Created in Painter Essentials 7 by Inky)

I

The container comes down

from the confectioners shelf and

each little drop of sweetness

spills into the bowl

II

Red and Yellow fancies

dusted with icing sugar

and as you open the bag

a blast of pear

III

Each Individually formed

rocky for a short while

but later smooth on the tongue

but watch for the sharp bits

IV

Thud of each drop

hitting the scale

rattle and then crunch

of the halves coming away

V

Sweet and Sour Sensations

tripping off the tongue

taking you back

to schoolday memories

Descend

Saturday 20th May 2017

During a dandelion seeds travels

each one rises up into the air,

some travel further than others

carried by the wind

eventually though, they gently drop to

nearby ground, where after a short rest they become

dandelions new, with bright yellow flowers

Laser lemon 🍋

#coloryourworld #cyw #laserlemon #laser-lemon

light beams travel cross the water 💦

as bright yellow lemons 🍋

release their wonderful flavour

through the corporation pop

in the tumbler

each drop 💧 releasing

the fresh flavour of summer.

perfect with the blue sky on green grass

Taking the leap

Second Thoughts

it seemed like such a good idea at the time

fuelled by bravado , and a third bottle of champagne

but as you were strapped into your harness

the doubts began to amass

but the time for self-doubt has now gone

you never know – it might be fun

as you head off the basalt ledge

and traverse down the mountains edge
