Illumination

Poetry, Space

Salford, 8th April 2019

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

Light green moments

Saturday morning, and I’m pondering the next shade of colour in fees fun foto challenge

lime green

now you say lime green to me, and my artistic thoughts go directly to the fruit bowl

lemon-lime-paint

But limes nowadays seem much darker in tone than what I’d normally associate them with….you would have to split  them open to get the colour you were looking for

But a quick scan of the kitchen cupboards soon reveals this light green colour.   In a packet of custard, or perhaps pasta or even strawberry jelly (strange but true). For the doubters it’s the one in the green packet…

lime jelly ? An acquired taste.

and outside in the garden, the trees have more of a lime green colour to them than the actual shade of a dark green limeimage.jpg

look again… and the outside of the lime is hiding in plain sight…

Silouhette

Acrostic

Silhouette

Some call him a shadowy figure

If you look at the wall carefully enough and

Look, you may just recognise him

He definitely has a definable shape

Of course – you would have a problem catching the real him

Unless you find the door or window that’s casting his form

Even then – he may be standing far away

The Moon casting his form on the wall

Take a look behind you – there’s nobody there – he’s

Exited the room under cover of darkness
