Two brothers

#octpowrimo #dogs #pointers

Two dogs…twins ? By inky

Been apart for a while , but

Really you never forget family

Out on the green fields

Two siblings meet, for the first time in a while

Happy to see each other, with

Eager calls and sniffs

Ready to run after one another for

Simply enjoying the moment

#Weather #Seasons #Summer #Acrostic

Summer sees me ignore the cirrus and and stratus

Taking in the rays peering through summers marshmallows

Reality is – something’s been smiling floating in the air

A smiling cloud, happy in the blue

Tears ? not today…and when Ra gets a little bit to fierce

A fluffy cloud and his chums are there to provide a bit of cover

Childhood

Education : A Found Poem

Education has produced a vast population

They spend twelve months

teaching children to walk and then talk

and the next twelve years

teaching them to sit down and shut up

when all you have to do

is teach them all to read

its a source of amusement and fun

to happy little minds

Not any Mongrel

Cur.gif

Cur

Salford, 27th April 2018

They say he’s a mongrel

a lower class

not to the standard of the pedigrees

But this cur has much more to offer

than those pedigree chums in the kennels

look at that  swagger – look at the smile

loyalty to his owner that sticks out a mile

And while pedigrees are pampered

he’s wagging his tail – in garden wi a stick

chasing down chew toys

compared to pedigrees – he’s quick!

Wrinkle

Salford 17th March 2018

Wrinkle

Another day goes by

Another crease forms on the face

A new laughter line joins by the eye

Age they say is a concept

You can be young – even after fifty,

Experts say (at the age of thirty)

I smile at that assertion

as i look at next doors pug – wrinkly and ruffled

Old age hasn’t bothered him – he still chases around the garden

Evoke

Evoke

Every memory can be triggered

Veils of happy tears and wonderful times at an

Occasion such as a cousins wedding

Kept safe in the head until

Engaged by a sight , sound or even a smell
