Fairy lights

4th July 2018

A piece of poetry from inky’s mass of notebooks, with a nod and a wink to the #promptuarium

Scattered like diamonds on black velvet

the sky sparkles like precious cargo

arrays of colours transmitted from light years away

really catching the eye in the way each ‘jewel’ twinkles

some would say – its taken time getting here – but to others – its instantaneous

Colour of the crown

Crown.jpg

#Coloryourworld #cyw #royalpurple

Perched on her majesty’s head

Under the frame of silver and jewel

Royal colour emits from the crown

Perhaps – it denotes her status – as head of her church

Like priests and bishops wear the colour in spring at mass in parishes up and down

England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales

Aquamarine

aquamarine

A precious stone – that’s what you are

Quite a beauty, like the colour of the sea

Until they found you in the rocks

A treasure hunter would travel many miles in search of the

Mermaids treasure – you couldn’t be seen…

A trick of the light ? perhaps .  But many a

Royal sent out their miners sailors and privateers

In search of your beauty

Navigating unchartered waters

Expecting to find you

Fortune (acrostic)

Fortune

For as long as prospectors keep talking

Oregon’s wagon trail has attracted people far and wide

Round the wild valleys they roam

Trekking around the carved out valleys for

Unforetold riches from the Horde of Coins

Navigating the challenging terrain can be difficult

Enjoy your quest – but expect trouble along the gold scattered route.

Treasure

Treasure

Taken from merchant ships, by

Rascals of the seven seas

Every pirate worth their salty sea legs

Admires the prize of jewels, silver and gold doubloons

Some keep their precious horde hidden

Under tropical sands , deserted shores – only

Revealed many moons later by a younger

Explorer, following the pirates charts and maps
