Ponder

#Fowc #Ponder

Cupcakes on a tray , Painter Art by Inky

You’ve been stood by the cafe counter

for over ten minutes

the teapot you ordered will have to be rewarmed

as you ponder over your latest quandry

Lemon, Raspberry, Blueberry or Vanilla ?

don’t hang about – have all four!!!

Labyrinth

#fowc #labyrinth

Losing your mind

as you travel its paths

breadcrumbs won’t help you here

you’ll need something a little bit sturdier as you make your way

round the puzzle

if you manage to get to the centre

next thing you’ll need to do is to make your way out

that will take a while – of course

help always comes from a helpful park ranger

Special Delivery

#Fowc #Delivery

A Knock on the door

there’s something special

waiting for you

at the front door

Not just any missive here

it’s wrapped up in fancy paper

metallic and shiny

with one great big stamp where its gathered on its bottom

For someone special

things to draw and paint and colour

and create things with

a “Thank you” card to the sender perhaps?

Frugal

Saturday 26th September 2020

Four pin code on the piggy bank

Really getting upset at the rise of a bar of chocolate

Unless there’s a discount – its not getting bought

Grabbing ? no, just careful

As the pennies from your last purchase gets back into your savings box

Locked away till you have enough for another bag of sweets

Encounter

#Fowc #Encounter #Rhino #Zoo

Armour Plated cousin of

Our dear old friend the horse

Lives off lots of green stuff

and fruits and berries of course!

With that great big horn on the end of his snout

you’d be careful when he starts running about

but he’s friendly to all who visit his lawn

and the keepers who look after his shiny white horn

Odd

#fowc #odd

Out of the Ordinary ? – Perhaps

Definately what you would call – one of a kind

Doing things against the norms

Of all in its number

Destined to be uniquely on its own

Divide it – there’ll always be something left over

Drain

#Fowc #Drain

Delving down the plughole

revolving in a never ending spiral

as the water travels

in perpetual motion

night after night, down the pipes towards the cleaning plant

Rocket

#Fowc #Rocket

A bit of a slow burner i think you would call it

The engines went into thrust, leaving clouds in its wake

On board little tiny robots – off to explore that far off planet

Cloud formations forming behind it

Rising up through the blue

for destination coloured orange

Design

#Fowc #Design

Blueprint of a design

Desired ideas from the craftsmens heads

extruded onto paper

some say its an artwork in itself as

individual pieces of a building, product or vehicle

get shown on paper

noting their structures and little quirks

Juggernaut

#Fowc #Juggernaut

Just as you thought the

unstoppable force was too

gigantic to stop in its path

greater forces played a hand

expectations were it would run out of steam

reality was no one would see the mighty excavator getting stuck in the

narrowest of passageways

all down to the drive for more sellable goods

unusually – the crews response – shut down and go home

they may find mother nature has occupied it when they return
