Lightning

Like a flash in the pan

It appears from the clouds

Going quickly through the atmosphere

Heading for the ground

Thunder noisily telling you that

not that far away – buckets of water will be falling soon

Illuminating that message in brief bursts

Night skies lit up in a spectacular display – it’s

Going to get wet – very soon….

Verbatim

#FFFC

Verbally repeating something, word for word

Everybody is supposed to do it

Reality is by the time the message gets

Back to the person its supposed to get to

A key element has changed

The message too – hasn’t gone out the way it should

In fact – the receiver of the Chinese whisper has to find you to confirm it

Maybe – its best – to write it down ?

#message #cipher #hidden

Like Poirot or James Bond , out for a clue

Over the message you did stew

Nobody knew who had left it there

Great time you spent reading to make you aware

Chocolate location the source of the code

If you could crack it you’d be off to its abode

Pretty hard was the code that hid the text

Holding the place you had the be next

Except this code, might have you beat as you

Reveal the location of the sweet yummy treat

Standstill

Standstill

Time stands still for a while

a second before

i think i caught the eye

of the girl in the polka dot dress

so while everythings frozen in time

i casually make my way over the platform

and pop a message in her bag

will it work?

Time will only tell

Message in a bottle – 2

Salford, 21st July 2017

Remember that piece I wrote about the message washed up in a bottle ?  I’ve given it a little thought and wrote what might have been on that rolled up paper!

Messageinbottle

 

Sat, as I am
on this deserted isle

I’m sending this message
to make someone smile

Being stuck on this island
isn’t much fun

even though theres blue skies
and lots of sun

so I’ve drawn you a map
and hope you might see

to send out a crew
to rescue me!

Message in a bottle

Bottle

Messageinbottle

The green glass container

landed with a bump on the sands

The sea, tired of its presence

 

No fine wine or olive oil here

but something more precious

a message for someone special

 

Sent in hope than anticipation

dropped into blue waters

floating off towards land

 

Time remains – and Questions Unanswered

Did message reach intended target ?

Or is he (or she) ? combing the shore ?

To a little girl or boy (or their mum and dad)

Everybody likes recieving something made especially for them

Perfume

Perfume

A poem written by inkdrop for the daily post : Perfume

Salford (via Heraklion) , 10th May 2017

Perhaps it was her eyes that first attracted me

Everyone stopped – freeze frame as we met

Reaction to that wonderful smile – unabashed, but

From that day on, she seemed to be everywhere

Unusually, i couldnt see her around, was my

Memory playing tricks on me ?

Even the blossom’s sent a message of her

Hidden Message

Scent

Sweet floral fragrance –

Captured in a bottle ,

and Released in the ballroom

At the high school dance.

 

In a matter of seconds

A million ingredients

travel with a message from girl to boy

“Have I got your attention yet ?”

The message

Urgent
a message noted urgent

was passed through the post

to the house by a postman,

eating his toast

 

it was marked up with red ink

for addressee in the house

who was working hard at the sink

quick as a mouse

 

you’ve won a prize draw

for this house in torquay

and it’ll cost you no more

than a hundred pound fee

 

but it no fool our dear reader

having read message therein

the message found a quick way

into recycle bin!
