Purple Mountain

#CYW #Killarney #PurpleMountainMajesty

Purple Mountains, Killarney

Perhaps the imps were out last night

up where the slate rocks lie

reactions to the sun falling on the hills

people are pleased with what they see on the eye

lilacs , lavenders and amethyst shades – all those and much more

everyone visiting loves the scene – so off they do explore

Light in Darkness

Salford 17th October 2020

#Octpowrimo

Outside in the darkness

the spirits dance under the LED Nights

that cast their lights over the tarmac road

shadowy forms skip and hop over kerb and walk

while the cats on the doorstep look on

as the night sky twinkles with the far off light

and constellations watch the night time boogie

Shimmer

Beach (Image : SC Vincent)

Sole observer watching by the shore, as

hopping and skipping towards the beach

in a race to get to him

many of Neptune’s and Ra’s children

move hop skip and jump creating colourful patterns

each one hoping they’ll get there first

racing bring smiles to all who see it

Water reflecting sunlight, Image by SC Vincent

Should any foolhardy person want to go treasure hunting

it’s not the treasure horde of a

long lost pirate down in that water

view you see is merely Ra peering at himself in a mirror

even if you went down into the depths

reflections would evaporate….and you would only be saying Hi to fish.

Last Glow

Last Glow of a Spring night (Image: B.F Kirkham)

Salford 24th May 2020


Spring is making a path for Summer

passing a baton to warmer times and

rallying the last bit of light from the evening

it may be late – but the moon hasn’t shown in

northern skies just yet – the sun is

glowing just enough to keep a blueness in the sky

Daybreak

#Writephoto #Daybreak

Daybreak : Image prompt from Sue Vincents Daily Echo




Darkness disappeared from view

As the moon and sun changed places

Yawning – Luna told Ra she’d see him at noon

But now, she was off to bed

Ra smiled, as he peeked above the horizon

Everyone seeing his glow raised a smile

Apart from those who had been running under his sisters light – now

Kipping in their beds in the nearby trees

A weekend writing prompt from https://Sammiesscribbles.wordpress.com

Poem or Prose in 28 Words – Okay!!!!

Polar bears are partying

under nights light show

the snow is twinkling

with various different colours

moving about on ice

like the mirrorball chasing

the disco floor beams

Cats eyes

Salford, 9th April 2019

I never really got those markers in the road

why they called them after the pupils of my favourite feline

they followed each other from a to b

leading motorists in the dark

as their eyes lit up

they reminded me of turtles

out in a warmer sea

encased in a hardened case like shell

and saying “hello!” to me

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
