Recycling

Acrostic, Cityscapes, Poetry

Salford, 14th August 2019

Someone at the depot, didn’t really

Enjoy the manual extraction of

Paper , Metal , Plastics and Glass

As they passed him by on the conveyor belt

Reaction ? swift as bright coloured cousins joined the usual receptacle

And Markets created to conjure household rubbish by the

Tonne, into something much more pleasing to the

Eye, as yesterdays news transformed into blank new canvas

Brassy

Acrostic, Colours, Industrial, Poetry

Brassy

Bronze it may not be, but it can bang out a tune

Resonating a sound that travels up and down the land

As great winds travel through moulded instruments

Some would call it a bit of a live wire with its sound, but

Spark like some other metals ? its remote.

You’ll see its yellow tones on railways and industrial sites for that very reason

Antique brass

At times you could mistake it for gold

with it’s off yellow patina

Decorating houses 🏡 with things from time gone by

But it’s much more valuable than that

To each wooden door 🚪 its castings and shapes

Bring a smile to those who are greeted by it

As younger successors buckle bridles and shoes

And animals awake their owners

As they knock on front doors around the land

Copper

Colour of a metal,

elementally – you’re not precious, but vital nonetheless

some would call you pink in colour

whilst others – nearer orange after time

collected by kids in schooldays attire

used by workmen in piping and wire

seen around , up and down

every house in the land

transporting utilities as vessels

from their works to home

Look up (to the sky)

Industrial, Nature, Weather

Look Up

Detroit Bridge, Erie Basin, Salford Quays

My entry for the “Look up” Photo Challenge

Picked it for the Red, White and Blue of the Steels in the bridge – as well as that wonderful blue you get of a Salford City Morning.

Could call it a little abstract on my part – but I like the way it makes shapes out of the morning sky.
