Weather Winter

waiting on the snow

#weather

There must be something

wrong with the thermometer

for the man at the met.office

is suggesting we all

wrap up snug and warm

in the next few days

His colleagues and pals

say “its too warm for snow”

but its hiding in the clouds

while the winds are a go

waiting for a mercury drop

when on the grasses and roofs it’ll stop

So while it’s in clouds

the wildlife will stay

having their fun and playing away

till the flakes of snow land on the ground

and they head for their nests and burrows around

Happy thoughts

Salford, 20th December

#Writeclub

A piece from write club (it may be the third of Jan – but thats when i wrote it)

The clockwork machine stopped working

Its stylus stopped writing on the paper

As ideas rose in the air like a hot air balloon

The engine wheels moving by minature mice

The cogs grinding away to keep the processes working

As cold air filled the room, frosty particle clung to every crevice and corner

holding each thought icily in its grasp

Signs thought the mice – somethings happening

which made the clockwork machine chime away

happy as can be – Santa’s landed on the office roof!

Scream

#Fowc #Scream

Something eerie is hiding in the dark

chilling all those living in the old house

rickety boards creaking ever so slightly

each one telling you you’re not alone

and as you light up the darkness to see

movement of resident mice – gets an instant reaction

Hidden

Hidden

In the green of the park

Never miss a moment

Vast numbers of creatures live

In every nook and cranny across the field of grass

Some, sleep in the wood – whilst others live

In the ground, pushing up the grass you play on

Birds nest hide away – but you have to

Look closely after grabbing their food they hide

Enjoy your game of Hide and seek – with such luck – you might get a peek!
