Views from a Window

I

Facing Swathe’s of Green

Little fruits play hide and seek

under leafy shade

II

Tomatoes Blushing

Star of the evening platter

by the battered cod

III

Empty vines begin

growth of some brand new red fruits

new fruits taking shape

Green Apple

#CYW #GrannysmithApple

Grown out on a fine fruit tree

really sweet taste

expectations – nice in a pie or strudel

enveloped in a parcel of filo with raisins and sultanas or

newly pressed in a juice or in a cider

Jungle Grass

#Coloryourworld #CYW #junglegreen

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the garden

Up shoot the blades from that packet you bought from the DIY Store

Not like your regular grass – this lot grow an awful lot faster

Going up as high as a giraffe’s neck

Local’s wonder where you disappeared to

Encapsulated by grass as you sit on your garden chairs

Inchworm

Salford, Saturday 28th March 2020

For one saturday only – a reblog…..I would have taken the Nikon out to see if i could spot the odd one of these mooching round the city parks flowers but with the global bug lockdown….i’m sharing this one from last year.

In time – you’ll become a wonderful thing

Noted for the wonderful patterns on your wing

Caterpillar family – small you may be

Hoping to sleep in the best of the tree

When you are little – you cannot be seen

Out eating the leaves of the trees whilst you’re green

Remaining on trees till you start to take flight

Making small kids smile from morning through night

Green

#cyw #green

Tree in green , created by inky at the toolshed

Grown by mother nature

Rampant forests in shades light and dark

Exciting combinations of Yellow and Blue

Envelope the land through the trees

Nice at any time – but particularly christmas

Green!

4th March 2020

The place where blue meets yellow

crafting colours seen in the most vibrant of gardens

lawns and evergreen trees line the garden path

being a canvas for other colours in front of the house

and yet you could paint the perfect picture

with the various shades of leaf, from tree or flower alike

Fish and Chips – Kind Of

fish in parsley sauce – impressionist by inky.

The noble fish sat on my plate

hadn’t had a battering

it had been enjoying a bath like Cleopatra

getting all warm and tasty

Upon leaving the path it was

wrapped up in a coat of green

to enhance its wonderful flavour

and rested on a bed of buttery potato

And while it lay there in on the plate

lying in its luxury

a cohort of peas stood on a potato ridge

to keep it safe from wondering eyes

But alas all were devoured

in the haze of white and green

grappled apart by trident and sword

by the chef and his guests

Fern

#coloryourworld #CYW #Fern

An acrostic for the Fern Colour on Tourmalines Coloryourworld challenge

Flowing fronds of green

each one coming from a central point

reminding me of an octopus or squid –

not squelchy, but just as many arms!

#fowc #paper

pulped and rolled out wood chip

a marvellous media to receive the

pens contents

even if the colour is

red , blue, yellow or green

source : The Fourth Bear, Jasper Fforde, P.155

when you look out towards the river

you’ll spot a swathe of green

amongst the towering skyscrapers

its the prettiest place you’ll have seen

The fathers are sat perplexed at the mo,

for they’ve been offered some cash to bestow

so long as the man wi the concrete

can dig up the trees that do grow

And the maps are recording it “Untouched”

so it costs less for builder to build

and no chance of digging up something

that will see sight of money unforfilled

But locals that live there are anguished,

and want to keep their patch of green

they’re making a move on the town hall

to ensure that the diggers not seen
