Mirror Man

Manchester, 7th October 2019

A tale of a street performer, inspired by Fandango’s Picture in the Flash Fiction Challenge

He Stands on his spot,

on the grass in the square,

doing his thing

while the others stare.

Today it is sunny,

so today – there’s a crowd

with his occasional movement

they cheer out loud

Sometimes a bird might land on his head

hoping for the chance that they might be fed

So inside his pocket – should there be a need

he has a small bag, of bird food or seeds

Little girl passing, trying to be brave

mirror man turns and gives her a wave

and watches others, as he gives them the time

in amusing but wordless performance in mime.

Reflection

Poetry

#fowc #reflection

Who’s that looking at you

As the image looks back

The image seems familiar

Except of course when

Ripples move across the way

My My! who is that, I call out

Inspecting the visage needing the

Razors attention in the morning

Ripples occur in the sink as the blades go in and

Out of the warm water

Razor cut hairs floating on the surface

what’s on the wall ?

Art, Home

Wall to Wall

Salford, 10th July 2017

theres one side of my bedroom that has become my own private gallery.

mickey mouse meets mountainous hills

one wall, contains a print of a local salford artist, joe Coffey…the connection tween the artist and myself ? We went to school together.  I went to one of his shows at the community art gallery in Langworthy…a short distance from where I live .  We had a brief reunion  whilst I saw his works and I picked up a signed print to help an old mate out.

the pic … tranquility…. is of the irwell and one of the green areas (possibly peel park) that it runs alongside

i picked up the next pic as I picked up some bedroom shelves in Warrington.  It’s a print of a Walt Disney cartoon…black and white…vanilla washed….mickey mouse and his dog Pluto, it raises a smile when friends come round.

The third pic…isn’t really a pic…it’s a mirror…but it’s embossed with a favourite character of mine…that bouncy friend of Winnie the Pooh…Tigger….I look at him as my reflection comes back….art with a dual purpose.

a picture of a mountain side by the artist c.todd overlooks the place I’m currently writing at.  And this is a real painting.  I picked it up from a craft fair in one of the local towns, and is of a mountainside, could be the Lake District, could be the peaks…could even be Japan..i like the colours that run through it
