Murdered at the wedding feast

Note to the reader – No one was harmed in the creation of this poem 🙂

It seemed that all was looking well

as the bride made her way down the aisle

and the vows were said with grace

the decorations made the hall look swell

As her bridesmaids escorted her in style to a hall,

where food of Heston Blumenthal ,

was served up in a most grand place

on silver platters Wall to Wall.

All seemed well, till after the dance

and the cooks brought in the wedding cake

the hotel located by a railway line

All would be well, you would thought the chance

as an express went past the floor began to shake

and tiers of the cake, began to fall

they saved three tiers – but what of the rest? was it fine?

ask the page boys under the table where it sat by the wall

Morning Battle

#Morning #Battle #writeclub

Head stuck under the pillow

Feet reaching for the floor

Toes feeling the cold tingle of wood floor

and making a retreat for the duvet

Rumble of morning traffic

passing by the close by road

engaged in a battle to reach their destination

Formula 1 – but without the engine

Perhaps it was a good idea

Maybe it had to be done

But sticking your head under ice cold water

couldn’t be considered much fun

Stairs

#fowc #stairs

Stairs , Image by Inky

Some would say – ascending to new heights

travelling by foot between one floor and another

aiming to reach the other floor

in time for your central heating to kick in

relaxing in your cosy sitting spot and watching

snowflakes passing the bedroom window

Spill

#Fowc #Kitchen #Spill

Some say “You can’t cry over spilt milk”

put into context – when that milk

is in a chocolate pudding – and its

landed on the kitchen floor – tears will flow as

lapping it up – instead of you – is your pet pussycat

mystery ii

#freedomofexpression #iscriblr #mystery

a response to iscriblrs wonderful mystery challenge…enjoy.

A strange thing happened the other night

Under the cover of dark

Something with a sweet tooth paid us a call

He snook into the kitchen, without giving us a fright

And sitting down at my birthday cake, he did park

Having eaten his slice, he went out the door

Lighting up the kitchen , as he passed by the walls

And leaving a trail of cake crumbs on the floor

Mislaid Valentine

Salford 15th February 2019

Charlie Brown

waited for the postman

for a response to the card he sent

to the red haired girl – across the field

unfortunately

he missed him

as Snoopy was dining on the card

that fell on the Brown’s hallway floor

Silouhette

Silhouette

Some call him a shadowy figure

If you look at the wall carefully enough and

Look, you may just recognise him

He definitely has a definable shape

Of course – you would have a problem catching the real him

Unless you find the door or window that’s casting his form

Even then – he may be standing far away

The Moon casting his form on the wall

Take a look behind you – there’s nobody there – he’s

Exited the room under cover of darkness

Trill

Trill

The noise of your partying parrot

Rattling his beak on the bars of his cage

Isn’t so bad – when compared to the racket of

Large seeds falling at speed and

Landing on the bird house floor

Tripping the light fantastic

Dancing

Daintily passing over the polished wood floor

are two pairs of feet, skipping happily across it

never seen together before – they haven’t a

care or a worry – just so long as the girl is happy

in her boyfriends arms, Dancing the

night away together – following each others

groove under the lights

Manatee

 

#coloryourworld #cyw #manatee

Mammal that lives in the tropical seas

Aquatic in the way it moves and breathes

Natural resident of west Indian water

Animal that grazes sea floor as it please

two large flippers allow him to weave

enjoying the plants lying under his feet

Each a present perhaps from neptunes daughter

sumptuous food for an afternoon treat
