Serenity

#writephoto #twilight

Sat on a bench

taking in the last of the sun’s daily allocation of rays

in that moment of time tween day and night

looking out for luna popping out from behind the marshmallows

lighting up the sky as ra dips below the horizon

Thoughts

#Thoughts #Bubbles #Marshmallows #Clouds

Salford 9th July 2018

The light little cirrus and stratus

help themselves to their

own little place in the sky

until the cloud departs they’ll be overlooked by the

great thinker of the skies himself – cumulonimbus – who’s

happily floating over the air

thinking about their next destination

some might call them Marshmallows, others call them ‘thought stores’

A colourful place

Imaginary

The seeds of creativity

come from a blank page

ideas held in seed form

spread and grow in the mind

a pencil, sandwich and cream soda

the architects tools

as rainbows cast across lemonade seas

marshmallow clouds and fudge trees

provide perfect plates

for a teddy bears picnic

Lap of Luxury

Luxury

Sat in the lounge

warming themselves by the log fire

inside the holiday villa

toasted marshmallows and hot, full on flavour

chocolate, to keep out any feel of winds outside

happy little nephews enjoying their evening

Hot Chocolate

In response to the prompt

Pick Your Potion

#CYW #Brown #Hot #Chocolate #Beverage

Brown Gold.

That’s what it is, hot steaming liquid gold.

A perfect thing on a cold, frosty winters morning

A cup of warming hot chocolate.

It waft’s the aroma of something pleasing on a frosty day and warms up the fingers in the surroundings of a motorway service station.

Normally drunk by the cappuccino set as an alternative to their high caffeine fix, the coffee houses up and down the motorways have seen fit to get into selling it…and the Makers of the refined coffee cant wait to sell it

What flavour would you like ?- the barista asks

(Barista – supposedly the guy who blended the coffee or chocolate mix – but on this occasion – the guy who’s operating the fancy machine behind the counter)

Mint, Orange, Blackforest (A special for Christmas) or  Peppermint

I plump for Peppermint – pay the man behind the counter and sit down with my brew and a gingerbread man, as the vapours of chocolate and Peppermint travel through the air towards my nose

And as the mug transports the Brown Gold to my mouth, the ice begins to thaw – a perfect antidote to a winters morning.

Marshmallows

A response to the prompt
Clouds

I saw you floating,
towards your goal in
the sky of blue

Fluffy white marshmallow
up in the sky above
where are you going?

creamy topped wisps
of milky coloured cloud
wait for the wind
nimble little things
accumulate
to form giants
of summer skies

and the cricketers await
your assistance
controlling the corona
of the nearby sun

Whilst others wait

for you to simply

melt away
