Artoo goes exploring

Salford 27th May 2020

Off on a wonder…..(Image by Inky)

I’m guessing he got bored of listening to the hum of my TV

I’d cleared up the workspace, and used my desk cleaner – in the shape

of Starwars favourite, R2-D2 to clean up Hex, the laptop i write this blog on.

I headed off downstairs for a spot of dinner – and guess where i found him when i returned…..?

Talking to his chum (my coinbox) on the other side of the room…..

Standing tall

#Octpowrimo

He’s the height of my thumb

and small as can be

dwarfed by my mug of cocoa or tea

but he’s happy as can be

among the toys and bricks

putting together those coloured ones that stick

and exploration is fun, so he’ll spend his time

climbing that mug, mentioned in this rhyme

Tentative

by Brian F Kirkham

little puss woken by mother,

now wants to walk outside

bright lights ahead

he wants to explore

so his little paws touch

the living room floor

Blackpool

Blackpool, 11th April 2017

Tuesday saw me take a little trip up the motorway to Blackpool with my sister Anne Marie and my two nephews James and George

Blackpool Tower

It wasn’t really seaside weather so, we visited the Tower circus and the Sea life centre instead….

The sea life centre was our first place we visited – and we all enjoyed the sharks, and the dolphins and Rays (as well as the fish)

The Circus Ring – Before the Show

There were lots of acrobats, and juggling and trapeze acts at this show, and plenty of clowning around…and lots of laughter.

We finished off the day with a picnic lunch by the tower.

Outer Space

#coloryourworld #cyw #outerspace

Picture created with Colorfy

looking out into the night sky,

it’s difficult to tell what colour outer space is

we paint it black – like a sheet of silk

and those far off dots in the fabric ? far off mystical worlds

we gave them names – and put them in stories

myths and legends, told many moon rises ago

Aries to the Huntsman we follow with pride

through telescopic lenses or newspapers inside

and the robots we send to examine these stars

landing on the moon, and venus and mars

are the UFO pilots playing hide and seek ?

Its a question the scientists ask every week.

Spaceman

In response to the prompt , Longing for Gravity

spaceman

Sent out to the red planet mars

Possibly, never to return

A spaceman ponders his future

Could there be a chance of return someday to

Earths blue skies ?

Maybe – but for now, he makes do with talks from A Man on a spaceship

And freeze dried food for breakfast lunch and dinner

Never knowing if he’ll return
