Robin egg blue

Wintery Christmas Baubles

Just the colour for Christmas celebrations

icy blue to match conditions outside

note – this colour also has something akin with a festive feathered friend

going about their business – landing on tree, grass roof and fence

living in a nearby nest, tending to the young uns

except – you won’t see them this celebration, maybe next.

Echoes of the past

Echo

Maybe it was the fact – I knew the way,

Edging to go down this way and not the other way I knew

Moments recalled – at the sight of an

Old rusting metal fence, encircling bright shiny new towers

Recollections of a time – a place of learning was here

In which i’d learn my craft, hone my skill

And gain a respect and love for the thing I appreciate

Long since replaced – the place of learning…but its fondly remembered
