Sparkle

Salford 2nd December 2017

The first days of advent always bring an air of magic.

I think it might be the sight of the Christmas tree

bright shiny metallic tinsel draped around the dark green fronds

Deep Reds, Dark Greens, Frosty Whites and Blues

Not forgetting the silver and golds

but even the advent colours of purple and pink look nice in a metallic sheen

who can forget the lights reflecting in the coloured glass baubles ?

and at the top of the tree, a Star or an Angel dancing over the fairy-lit tree

Shimmer

Shimmer

Shining in the bright moonlight

holding her beauty by the waters edge

in the way she reflects herself in the water

maybe she will catch someone’s eye

mariners on the hunt for precious cargo

expecting to find valuables where she is

resting

Silver

#Coloryourworld #cyw #silver #metallic

Some say they prefer it to Gold

it’s the way the

light falls on it you see

venerated by wise men and pirates alike

everyone knows – this precious metal – is secure in its place

revered by every smith that works it and every miner that hews it from the ground
