a response to iscriblrs wonderful mystery challenge…enjoy.
A strange thing happened the other night
Under the cover of dark
Something with a sweet tooth paid us a call
He snook into the kitchen, without giving us a fright
And sitting down at my birthday cake, he did park
Having eaten his slice, he went out the door
Lighting up the kitchen , as he passed by the walls
And leaving a trail of cake crumbs on the floor
All Hallows eve, Salford 2017
Maybe it was a ghost that paid a visit
yesterday – but if that’s the case
some ghost has a taste for cocoa and cookies
taken from my suppertime plate
each cookie now resembling a crescent moon
reduced levels in the cocoa mug
yes its a puzzle – whodunnit ?
Manchester Town hall, St Peter’s Square Manchester
All saints day, 1st November 2017
What lies behind the corridors
tween power and learning ?
a path to who knows where ?
questions are asked in the buildings on the east
while questions are answered in the building to the west
fancy seeing what lies beyond the lights?
New years eve approaches
and Old Father Time
wanders through the home of his house
the dust amassed over each bit of furniture
Memories scattered throughout every room
Magical Moments, Sorrow and Joy
Memories of Colours he’d seen as a boy
and looking in the mirror
he counts each white brow
remembering he looked more younger than now
So dressed in his best, for one more last time
He waits for the last bells of this year to chime
But a question for the wardrobe
as the sand flows away
Where did that other sock of mine go to play?
An Odd one for every one of those years
but will any of them will ever reappear?
A Tale of Time – and Old Socks
