Battleships

#fowc #strategy

Set warships for design and for creativity

school fun in the playground

taking time out from spelling and sums

rolling out your fleet of ships

as you mark them out on your eight by eight grid

then you guess where your pal has hidden his

each marking the

guesses with a cross where each vessel is

you’ll play this all day – or until the schoolbell rings for class

Delight

Dreamy, light and fluffy

enjoyed by young and old alike

luscious strawberries held in a moment

it’ll be wolfed down by all

captured in the glass as it is

it’s not any old mousse – and

of course – those at the table will ask “Any more?”

usually, its chef’s privilage to go at the mixing bowl – but

someone will be re-using it to make seconds – or sharing….

Liquid

#fowc #Liquid

I

Like rain

it drops into the water below

quite gracefully

umbrellas not required

it’s used to clean your cutlery

dinner plates and all

II

Freshly Squeezed from

ripened berries

up in the trees or bushes

it’s the hiding place for vitamins and minerals

tasty – and good for you

III

Enough fuel in the tank ?

Navigating your way to the nearest truck stop

Enabling you to fill your vehicle up with gas for the

Roadtrip ahead

Gas guzzlers do more than smaller vehicles, but

You’ll keep on filling up to get from A to B

Comfort

#fowc #comfort

Cold weather isn’t nice to be out in, so

on winter days, you’ll find me wrapped up with a

mug of warm hot chocolate in my paws and

furry slippers on my feet – while

outside its snowing and blowing a gale – i’m

reading a book inside, looking out of the window now and then

toasty and warm, away from the cold

Anticipate

Clouds in blue sky (Image created in painter , photo by inky)

You just know it’s coming

there’s a patch of blue – but its covered in grey

lakes of water now pool in the recesses

of tarmac roads

the last of the water travels slowly

towards the open grid

while the other clouds tease you

to nip out without an umbrella

come out and play – they say

ready to throw a bucket or two

at you

Condiments, Watercolour in painter by inky

Sat in the hotel dining room

waiting for his bacon and eggs to be dished up

he works on an impromptu masterpiece

his models not as picky as usual

but they’re the stars of this pre-breakfast show

while the main act is getting ready
