Illumination

Salford, 8th April 2019

LED Lighting – Outside the house (Image BF Kirkham)

It’s not as if an alien were

looking for a landing spot or

leading lights of theatre were performing outside

under portable stage lighting –

moon looks on in awe – as halogen lighting casts

instant brightness down the street

night time glow falls over housing

as orbs of light create silhouettes and shadow

the sky seems brighter somehow

its like the brightness has hidden all the stars

overhead – outside, some place there’s satellites flying

note though – with all the light – you can’t see them

Spire

spire

an acrostic on by inky about Stowell spire on the corner of Trafford Road , in Salford

Soaring up to the heavens

Perhaps it be fitting – the old church spire be

Illuminated – lighting up the

Roads and pavements around it

Everybody knows it as a local landmark
