Elephant

Each line of the elephant’s hide

like its mum and dad before it, has been well earned

each wrinkle in the trunk

positioned from moving fallen trees and

hosing down his brothers and sisters

at the jungle watering hole

now – when you catch his eye – he’ll observe you closely

that’s collected wisdom collected in every wrinkle and ripple

Blush (V3)

In response to the Colour your world challenge

Something caught you

unawares

red tinge around your cheeks

perhaps you weren’t expecting it

rosy complexion brought to your face

its not embarrassment –

somethings just made your heartbeat

elevate that little bit quicker

#Weather #Seasons #Summer #Acrostic

Summer sees me ignore the cirrus and and stratus

Taking in the rays peering through summers marshmallows

Reality is – something’s been smiling floating in the air

A smiling cloud, happy in the blue

Tears ? not today…and when Ra gets a little bit to fierce

A fluffy cloud and his chums are there to provide a bit of cover

Wrinkle

Salford 17th March 2018

Wrinkle

Another day goes by

Another crease forms on the face

A new laughter line joins by the eye

Age they say is a concept

You can be young – even after fifty,

Experts say (at the age of thirty)

I smile at that assertion

as i look at next doors pug – wrinkly and ruffled

Old age hasn’t bothered him – he still chases around the garden
