Another Night Out

#fffc

a response to the painting

Painting by Chin H Shin

They haven’t been seen each other

for a while

So tonight, they’re meeting up

in Style

Taking in the town

for the night

Under the falling

Halogen light

As the rain gently falls

in the puddles they splash

while in the restaurant eating

they splash the cash

Plunge

#fowc #plunge

In the warmth of a Roasting Grecian Sun

the cocky young adventurer

might have been forgiven by his elders

for trying to impress the maids sat by the beach

what he didn’t know

was the water that day was more arctic than athenian

and made his heart leap quicker than the girls

Invisible

#Invisible #life

It’s not easy being invisible….

at first i thought it would be fun

playing tricks in the playground

on each and everyone

Hiding away from the teachers gaze

while creating work that would amaze

drawing cartoons on the board in chalk

and puzzling teachers as out of class i’d walk

Occasionally the dinner staff would see me there

and fellow classmates would wonder where

i’d appeared like a rabbit – out of a hat

i said i was in the labs – and that was that

But the one girl who really caught my eye

smiled at me as i was eating my pie –

for she could see my visage coming down the stairs

and blew me a kiss – as i wasn’t aware.

Silence

#Octpowrimo #Silence

Tuesday 15th October 2019

It’s quiet – maybe too quiet

A pin would definitely be the noisiest thing in the room :-

but there’s a reason for the silence

final preparations for those end of year papers

like the whole of the fifth year had joined a monastic order

even the ladies and gents are sat on separate desks

but beyond the silence ? Mayhem in the schoolyard

Pink Sherbet

#Colouryourworld #Cyw #Pinksherbet

Sweet to me that’s what you are

Hot pink sugar fizzing on the tongue

Every girls favourite candy

Running riot at the school hall hop

Boys cant wait for the chance to

Entertain you on the dance hall floor

To grab a taste of your kisses
