Salford 6th September 2019

Perhaps it wasn’t such a great idea

Over your feet you fell

In pursuit of the

Scaly creature hiding in the cave

Everyone said it would catch you before it

Doyouthinkhesaurus ? most definately

Toadstool

Toadstools, growing by a tree on Salford Quays (Image: Brian F Kirkham)

a late night poem, rewritten from my notebooks – enjoy.

 

In cold damp and dark

out in the park

a small brown toadstool

sits hiding in the grass

shy and retiring

not best in its class

sheltered by reeds, in the wind and rain

camouflauged by the grass

drinking slowly from the drain

Vanished

a poem in response to the prompt

Vanish

Quite a trick you managed there

disappearing into fresh air

where you’ve gone – I haven’t a clue

but I know exactly what to do

even though you’ve gone – with out a trace

I know what will make you return to place

I’m off to make your favourite pie

and back to the house – soon you will fly.

Hide and Seek

Hide and Seek

An Allpoetry  piece by yours truly – about little green men from mars (sic)

They called him “Curiosity”
and sent him off to Mars
to dig up samples of possible life
and collect them up in jars.

He had a bumpy landing,
from his journey from far off earth
but once he’d picked up rays from the sun
he was off for all he was worth

He collected samples for a week
the humans – on earth – sent him to seek
up and down this planet of red
till he powered down and went to bed.

And when he woke up
Imagine the surprise
Greeted by little men from mars
when he did rise

“You found us!” said a little furry creature in Green
“We’re such great hiders – we’ve never been seen”
So then it was his turn – and his wheels they did run
(after he’d charged up his batteries in the sun)

So, Dear scientists don’t worry today
his batteries aren’t broken – he’s gone off to play
with his new friends the Martians – he’s been there for weeks
finding new places – to play “Hide and Seek”
