Team GB winning Gold in the Cycling, Lineart created from Screenshot in PSE 20 by inky

Medals of precious medal

are the prize as the athletes

dart around the track on their cycle relay

in search of the top three positions

some say bronze and silver are runners up –

of course everyone wants gold…..in reality

no one wants to be fourth

Three states of chocolate…..

a sweet piece by inky

You stood in the newsagent
observing the aisles
like an aztec worshipper
in front of a chocolate altar
Armed with your golden coins
you lifted up the chosen bar
and waited to pay at the till
The foil shone under the lamps
as you caught a sly smell
the waiting would be worth it
Golden coin for for chocolate heaven
now rubbing the bar , releasing that smell
as you take your time, with each square
A brisk Snap, an expectation
A scent of flavour, a delactation
A chocolate piece melts, a taste sensation

Birds at the Alfresco eating (Image C/o Dreamtime.com)

someone’s been out again

the evidence is there – for

round and about – despite restriction

every feathered friend for about a mile is

engaged in trying to get

their share of the edible gold, that’s

simply sat, saying “I’m Here”

Lucky

Salford, 17th March 2021

They said a leprechaun was seen

on St.Patrick’s day

He’d crossed the Irish sea by boat

and travelled the East lancashire Way

he spent his gold coins generously

in all the pubs and bars

and took in all the scenic spots

travelling by taxi car

the wide eyed among you

would have smiled as he went down road

as he left a trail of pennies

on his way to his night time abode

Chasing Rainbows

A response to photo challenge #319 at mindlovemiserysmenagerie.wordpress.com

Photo by Raine Nectar at Pixels.com

Appearance of seven bright colours

Breaking through the skies leads to a

Chase through the streets by some in a

Desperate (or plain daft) attempt to grab

Elven, pixie or Leprechaun treasure

Fate decrees though, by the time the hunters

Get to their multi-coloured target , the treasure will

Have been moved…to another end of another rainbow.

Crown

#writephoto #crown

Sat atop the hill of wheat

Circle of stone sits on throw of green

Ancient throne perhaps ?

Regal walk through a field of gold

A crowning glory

Before harvest time

Golden

#CYW #Gold

There’s nothing better than a summer sky

warm coloured tones of

corn or wheat growing in the farmers field

or maybe the thought

of sinking your toes into warm golden sands

before dipping them in the sea

breakfast dinner or tea – wonderous eggs

dipped with bread soldiers

for an afternoon feast

Western’s always had one of these in a movie,

as they rolled through wild American country on a search for

gold, minerals or prosperous plains of plenty

over rocky terrain, sandy deserts and swamps they’d travel

north south east, but mostly west on search for a fortune

Cees Fun Foto Challenge – Colour of Choice

12th February 2019

Take your pick…colours of the rainbow await

Red, Green, Yellow, Gold and Blue (if you can get it)

no need for CD-R pens, the computer has done the marking for you

and its much neater than a scribble

so instead of you flipping the CD for a title

you know from the pic you took – its on the Disc!

Gold

#coloryourworld #cyw #gold

You’re precious to all,

Shining in the sunlight,

Magpie’s swoop at the sight of you

whilst Men seek out the places you play hide and seek

Not as hard as Iron your qualities valued up and down the land

formed to create a union Very hard to break

Bumblebees strive to create from the pollen they catch

something similar in the garden that match your wonderful colour

And Athletes meet up at great venues around the blue marble

for a chance that their hard work will have you resting around their necks
