Chasing Rainbows

A response to photo challenge #319 at mindlovemiserysmenagerie.wordpress.com

Appearance of seven bright colours

Breaking through the skies leads to a

Chase through the streets by some in a

Desperate (or plain daft) attempt to grab

Elven, pixie or Leprechaun treasure

Fate decrees though, by the time the hunters

Get to their multi-coloured target , the treasure will

Have been moved…to another end of another rainbow.

Christmas

Tape

27th December 2019

#fowc #tape

the process of wrapping Christmas presents can be stressful

as its like a strategic campaign trying to get the paper right –

prising adhesive tape off your fingers – and then – losing the

end – as you find yourself trying to find the end…..

Christmas Star

Salford , 6th January 2019

Its the twelfth day of Christmas

the star has finally landed

So why on earth is the tree coming down

and decorations are being disbanded ?

Hourglass

Salford, 30th December 2018

The seconds tick on by

With each single grain of sand

Falling softly into the hourglass

Each second passing

Moments in history

As the grains keep falling

And Father Time watches

As his birthday approaches

And it’s time to shave the beard off

Armistice

11th November 2017

poppy-remembrance-poems-bk

As the accord was signed

Regiments over the battlefields of europe

Made safe their weaponry, as commanding officers

Instructed their men to stop shooting

So they stayed at their post

Till the time was declared by those in charge

It’s time for the firing to stop , lads –

Come back home, you’re needed here

Enjoy the boat ride back.
