Start of a New Day

Greeting me beyond the curtains

long bright line of sky

of course, the sun isn’t full in the sky yet

when it is look forward to seeing the blue

Monday Morning Word

When you think of the humble raindrop,
Altering its shape by gravity
Taking the form of a clear wall, or corona in the stream
Each little drop, falls, chasing the others
Round drops and Rainbows cascade,
Falling into a pool down below.
Always constantly moving
Lovingly powered by the
Lakes and streams and clouds from above.

Rolling on in

Salford, Monday 4th May

It’s early morning, as i rise

and the street is busy to my surprise

for waking up the chorus (Dawn)

a pussy cat, a little forlorn

He’d spent his time, with his pals last night

playing around under the street lights

but now Ra is up, it has to be said

this furry old cat wants in for his bed

His stomach is full, thanks to a friend on the street

corned beef from a can – a most tasty treat

but his thoughts turned to breakfast, as on street he did play

so off to the garden , he began to make way

And up is his owner, so he’s through the back door

and slowly he goes off to his bed on the floor

so while humans are out, with meetings they keep

our furry old pussycat, is in bed, sound asleep

Wake up call

Salford, 23rd April 2020

#Napowrimo #Nature

No computer required

as up on my window ledge

there are feathered friends residing

until their chicks are fully fledged they’ll be

residing there chirping from morning till night – I

expect to be up early when the sun pops up

Breakfast

Salford, 7th April 2020

#Food #Morning #Breakfast #Napowrimo

A prompt from Writerswrite.co.za – cheers to the promptuarium for providing the list of prompts

Best meal of the day, some people call it….

Ripe tasty bananas slapped between two pieces of buttered bread, or

Egg, boiled and salted, and served up with bread soldiers

A hearty breakfast – they say, is fit for a

King….Bacon, Eggs, sausage, tomatoes….

French toast is an alternative if you don’t like chasing your food

As are cereals….but don’t forget toast and

Strawberry jam….its a crowd pleaser

That’ll please any fussy eater (or cheese if they don’t like the sweet stuff)

Four Calling Birds

Salford, 28th December 2019

#Birds #2019 #Christmas

A couple of days into the Christmas season

I thought the birds had all gone somewhere sunny

I would have joined them (if I had the money)

but who should arrive on a Saturday morn

feathers all winded, ruffled and torn ???

Sat on the nest resting on the drain

covered by leaves , protected from the rain

snoozing away without any fear

happy to stay there – until next year!

Saturday Morning, 8am

Early Morning (Image by Brian F Kirkham)

A half opened eye toward the window

streaks of pastel cloud pepper the sky

local aviators practice their morning manoevres

before caged tigers are released into the wild

and rumbling wheels pass down the road

Wednesday Morning, 6.30

#Octpowrimo #Morning #Sunrise

Wednsday morning, 6.30 am : Image by Brian F Kirkham

An early morning piece from inky.

In twenty four society, there’s no time for beauty sleep

There’s parcels to be delivered from point A to B

and piles of paper to be rounded up for recycling

rolling down the main road – the recycling van rumbles

trying his best not to rouse the resting citizens

having run a race with Ra, and won

as the victor , returning to the depot sees the runner up

rise slow above the horizon – reward for the crew ? Breakfast.

Canary

#CYW #Coloryourworld #Canaryyellow #Canary #Yellow

A piece for tourmalines Color your world challenge

Could it be said, this bird is

as bright as the morning sun ?

noted for its bright yellow plumage

and as chirpy in the afternoon as he is in the morning

rise and shine folks, the morning is here! the little

yellow bird sings out.

Shirt

9th July 2019

#Promptuarium #thenightbefore #prompt #question #girl

She walked around the room

picking up her things

the night had been great

but it was time for serious work

breakfast could wait

as she straightened her skirt

and watched as you woke

and all you could ask

as you shared a smile

“Is that my shirt?”
