Lucky

Salford, 17th March 2021

They said a leprechaun was seen

on St.Patrick’s day

He’d crossed the Irish sea by boat

and travelled the East lancashire Way

he spent his gold coins generously

in all the pubs and bars

and took in all the scenic spots

travelling by taxi car

the wide eyed among you

would have smiled as he went down road

as he left a trail of pennies

on his way to his night time abode

Shamrock

Something makes me smile when i see it

hopping out of the ground

and providing a green border for the

many other plants out in the gardens, parks and forests

related to the pea plant – its known for its three leaves

often seen on St patricks day – it’s a proud irish emblem

clover – its cousin looks on in envy – for while they say its lucky picking four leaves, they’ll

keep on wearing the three leaves of the forest.

Weathered

Another poem by inky

Salford (via Llandudno) , 11th January 2018

Weathered

I like the pebble beach at Llandudno.

each of those stones, has their own tale to tell

time taken over millions of years to form,

then broken up and shaped over another stretch of time

to create the many shapes that come together as a flat bed by the Irish Sea

great for skimming on the surface – if you can find just the right round ones

some of the cast are smooth to the touch and shiny as a button

but a word of caution – wear your shoes – some of these are sharp!

Lucky 🍀 Irish green

You spread good fortune 🔮

To all who find you

Is it fortune or chance

That besets your finder

Only time will tell

As they scour the fields

On search for your four leaves

In time for the football match
