Making the most of that precious

opportunity, when in the field

out of the last rays of sun, just before

nightfall – Luna makes an appearance

down below her – the children skip and jig

and above them – feathered friends flap excited as

night begins to fall

children will be called in as shades of red turn dark blue, so

enjoy the time in the long grass, they will

Staying put

#photoprompt #WDYS

At the top of the hill

you would have thought

the wind and the rain

would have aided the bales

into the nearby hedge

but bundled as they are

the bales are secure

in the knowledge that

until required

they’ll be sticking around

for a bit

Halloween Holidays

Out at Night

#Promptuarium #Octpowrimo #halloween #goblins

Out in the farmers field

while the pumpkins slept

out in the field

something crept

leaving a trail of

debris in their way

stopping the chance

of hallows eve play

a question they ask

a simple why?

do people persist with the lanterns ?

they like pumpkin pie….

For its not just trick or treaters

on halloween night

who are frightened away

by the lantern light.

They want to have fun

They just want to play

so to Mr Jack-o-lantern

Please go away!

Hope

#socs #hope

I

expectation….

its building in the streets

wondering if

Maybe – Just maybe

the men and the ministry

will tell us we can go back to normal

II

Grandkids

calling their nannas and grandads

plans being formulated

over an i-pad screen

rendezvous to see them

and share a hug

III

The athletes preparing

to jet off in search for gold

times and distances to be broken

records to be re-written

under the umbrella of prevention

will search be fruitful – here’s hoping

IV

Final preparations draw near

to the victor – comes the shiny trophy

Two nations, expect

The weight of expectation – balanced

Till the referee blows his whistle

The Gate

#napowrimo #paperswans #prompt #gate

A paperswans picture prompt for napowrimo

perplexed people pondered

what point the gate

when the sheep were enjoying

every square bit of green beyond the stone wall

was it to keep the sheep out

or was it to keep the humans in ?

She waits in the pen with great trepidation

her aunties waiting for her cousins to arrive

expectations a plenty, for lots of young uns to

engage with, keeping close to mum at the mo but

playing with them all in the pasture, when the time is right

Hidden Away

Take a look.

If you were distracted by the yellow tulips

Massed on the carpet of green

Everyone knows – you would have missed it

Look again – it’s there sitting on the

Edge of the vast expanse of water

Some might say its daft masquerading as a molehill – but

Silliness is a cheap price to pay for Solitude

North of the farm

#Promptuarium #Aliens #farm

Mr and Mrs Giles

were bemused to say the least

when their arable field became home

to an enormous beast

Two visitors from mars

knocked on their door

and sheepishly sent

their eyes to the floor

“we’re sorry we landed, in your field Mr Giles

but there wasn’t a place for Daisy for miles

Our cow she’s quite big with eighteen legs

And she wanted a spot to lay her eggs”

So the farmer he went with his alien friends

and saw poor old daisy sat on her end

around her , and dotted around her legs

very large sized, massive, brown and white eggs

“There’s enough in this egg for one thousand teas”

and the aliens said they could have as much as they pleased

so long as the rest, could be picked up and stored

they could use that egg as a thank you reward

So the daisy slept in a barn for the night

and the aliens and the farmer , to avoid others fright

fixed up the spaceship – while everyone was asleep

even the prize ram who would gambol and leap

just before daybreak, in the air they would fly

towards their home in the far off sky

and farmer giles was more happy than pleased

as he started to sell cakes, buns and teas

Neon Carrot

No denying the dish of the day

every rabbit around has been after

one since the man in the spaceship planted

nine hundred and ninety nine

Colourful seeds in the abandoned field

a whole host of wildlife had a share from

radishes to lettuce – with their extra special glow

rabbits enjoyed the carrots

of course – now they’ve eaten the alien crops

they’re easy to see – just not that easy to catch!
