Restart

The three buttons pressed

the work starts to disappear

in front of your eyes

 

computer insists

its day has just started

With a nice blank page

 

morals learned today

to take a tea break often

inbetween chapters

Comedy Greats

Have always raised a smile with me

Up the golden stairwell to the pearly gates – they’re

Creating a great wall of laughter

Kids of all ages are

Laughing out loud to

Each single comic – from Cooper to Milligan

Neon carrot 🥕

#coloryourworld #neoncarrot #cyw

The latest batch of carrots 🥕

in farmer 👨‍🌾 Giles field

are the brightest vegetables to be seen

and not easily concealed

for these orange carrots 🥕 are so bright

their tops can be seen in the field at night

he said he got the carrot seed

from a friend from out of town

(who really was from planet 🌎 x

and heading homeward bound)

but whilst the carrots grew on field

at night they were to wildlife revealed

so rabbits 🐰 mice 🐭 and hares all

in farmer Giles field are having a ball…

with the gigantic bright carrots Giles is selling for cash

in cakes, soups and salads and even as mash!

I’ve had fun this morning at BASIC’s photography session.

It was a still life session with a difference – using a Racing Bike and some little toy characters

Framed with a backdrop provided by our leader and tutor Maggie.

Here’s the bike we used for the shots 🙂

I came armed with my Sony DSC-300 and my Xperia Phone as backupdsc_0014_1

A Close up of the spokes on the wheel

While I was taking the shots – I heard a tiny voice in the classroom….

“HELP!!!” he yelled

Gulliver

30th October 2016

A tale by Brian F Kirkham (inkdrop) in response to the Daily post prompt

Giant

There was a lad called Gulliver

who’s parents were reliant

related to the Beanstalk Jack

(the one who killed the Giant)

Compared to Jack – He wasn’t that tall

and by the beanstalk he looked quite small

he went exploring off to the sea

as well as looking for summat for tea

His boat was harshly hit to and fro,

and young Gulliver washed up on shore in the snow

“We’ve got you!” said a little man he saw by his side

but he couldn’t rise up – he tried and he tried

His hopes of escape

they were dashed by the small

tied by ropes to the ground

he couldn’t move at all

And so he did sleep – until on one day

his strength did return and the ropes they gave way

But his boat it were broken so he sent Dad a letter

“Will be home soon” he said “When boat it is better”

So soon they were friends – Gulliver and Small

and the Islanders were grateful he really was tall

as Gulliver harvested crops in the day

a yearful’s supply – so the villagers could play.

Shadow

He’s there by day (and sometimes at night),
Follows round me like a puppy – but doesn’t bite.
On Night streets, he’s home before I reach gate,
arrives in the morning, he’s never late.

I see him on Curtains, on walls and on doors
in front of me on lawns and pavements and floors
He bends around hallways, and up and down stairs
and sometimes, he catches people unawares…

See, depending on time of day, and the sun,
my shadow and I can have some great fun.
As the sun rises up, he grows from my feet…
and you can see him quite clearly – right down th’ street

But, the thing is, and here’s where I’ll give thee some news
My shadow isn’t really attached to my shoes.
So, at Night time – he disappears – when I’m resting my head
and reappears quickly when I get out of bed!
