Expansion of a moment

#writeclub #napowrimo

cheers to Kizzy @ writeclub for providing the prompt

Like the colours of the morning sun

it awakens, telling its friends and neighbours

gracefully that its time to get up

hopping and dancing from

tree to tree in its search for lunch

looking in each flowers trumpet for

yummy nectar

MLMM – Time

#MLMM #Taleweaver #Time

A piece from the notebooks for this prompt – enjoy….Inky.

Time has many colours
The golden grains of sand in summer
that change the further south you go
moving by plane or wheels to and fro

Time denotes a special treat
An egg at easter, or a birthday type eat
or opening presents on Christmas morn
parents watch as the wrapping is torn

Time measures cooking of your Breakfast egg
or your Sunday Ham or Roast Lamb Leg
Time is the Now and the then on the Line
which crafts the drink from the grape on the vine

Time never stops, time moves on
that moment goes by, and then it has gone
Sand passes through chamber, and moves on the hand
of the watch on your wrist, humble or grand

And scholars of old, note history
of the Time, where men and women fought tyranny
A precious resource – its there, then its gone
Till your time runs out – but time moves on

On the Sands

#beach #quiet #moment

Early morning

calm before the chaos

watching the sun pop its head

above the waterline

catching those precious

early morning rays

watching her shadow like a little girl

as she leaves footprints in the sand

Gliding

#fowc #Gliding

Gliding through the water

The crew waited for that moment

the moment that was perfect

the moment to change direction

No Salty Afternoon Washes

No Swabbing the decks of Seawater

No trouble from the turning wind

Simply moving through the water

Simply cutting past the breakers

Simply Gliding through the sea

Two brothers

#octpowrimo #dogs #pointers

Two dogs…twins ? By inky

Been apart for a while , but

Really you never forget family

Out on the green fields

Two siblings meet, for the first time in a while

Happy to see each other, with

Eager calls and sniffs

Ready to run after one another for

Simply enjoying the moment

Awkward

Awkward

A moment occured

when you expressed your affection for that girl at the bus stop with a

kiss…only for the romance to die

when you shuffled about

against the bus stop pole – in full view of the

remaining passengers, it might seemed

dramatic – and some old ladies smiled (all you could do was look downwards)

The Moment

A poetical piece, posted as a poetic response to my piece in If I could turn back time….

enjoy

A moment in an hour of doom,
lifted my spirits in the disco lit gloom.
This wallflower clings to the wall with care
whilst the beauty in his vision sits on a chair

A moment of courage came to the lad,
so I decided to take the chance I had.
And by chance , our eyes began to meet
so I started to shuffle my nervous feet

Towards You , on the floor
and not , towards the door

You took me, quite
by surprise!
When you moved, those
beautiful eyes
Towards the apparent, valentines
last prize

That was me.

So while you move, wi’ your soda and lime
we’ll move to the middle, and take our time
grasping the nettle, and taking a chance
to hold one another – and dance!
