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

Inspiration

Its what she does

noting down the events of the day

scribbling it down in her journal

penning down memories

in ink, of her time by the sands

revelling at the sights of birds and butterflies

as she enjoyed an impromptu snack by the sea

the birds passing by, as snacks are munched

in the distance – the

odd boat passes by, you never know – the

nautical craft might get a mention

Here’s a girl you see every christmas tide

often seen picking the prickly evergreen

like her life depended on it

later she’ll be putting it carefully around the

yearly table decorations – making the candles look pretty

Aquamarine

They say its the true colour of water

but by the time you’ve had your cordial added

the fruit has fizzled it away

It sets of a summer holiday perfectly

as the sun reflects its blue

and you wan’t to dip your toes

on perfect days, the sky mirrors the sea

and its like the sea begins where the sky ends

wonderful to look at from a deckchair

of course, the jeweller likes this colour

its the birthstone thats usually surrounded by diamonds

so its no wonder he likes it

or the colour of the eyes of the young lady

whos entered his shop

to purchase a ring with this precious stone

Sat on the jetty

As Sun switches with Moon

Waiting for the boat

Moonlight Rendezvous

With Boy of her hearts desire

and tasty picnic

Face hidden by mask

Girl unknown to the new boy

passed in the corridor

Red Violet

#CYW #RedViolet

Red Violet by Inky

Sat on the park bench

In an effort to enjoy his sandwiches, Charlie brown

Reacts with a smile – to the girl who caught his

Eye….the girl with the red hair

Now – tomorrow – he might go over and talk to her

Reflection

Girl : Image from Google Images

The Christmas tree lights twinkled

as the girl stared under the tree

bright shiny gifts propped around the base

like supporting stones

expectations fulfilled ? perhaps – but

there was always something that

santa didn’t deliver – leaving an air of disappointment

Mystique

Manchester, 26th April 2020

Sat in the tranquil scene

of the gardens off

Piccadilly

really – it hadn’t registered before

engaging in conversation in

the college refectory

the year we first met – like

yesterday

Seagulls

Salford , 2nd April 2020

Someone is hovering over Salford’s bins

every day they’ve been seen – on spying missions

and some say – they’re worse than the pigeons

gracefully flying through the skies

until the bins on the waterside are

looking full – likelihood is – they’ll chance their

luck – with a lass coming home from the chippy

Shirt

9th July 2019

#Promptuarium #thenightbefore #prompt #question #girl

She walked around the room

picking up her things

the night had been great

but it was time for serious work

breakfast could wait

as she straightened her skirt

and watched as you woke

and all you could ask

as you shared a smile

“Is that my shirt?”
