Periwinkle – an acrostic by inkdrop for the coloryourworld challenge

 

Perhaps the most pastel of blues in the garden

every gardener worth his greenfingers knows you for your lavender flowers

reaching out to the morning light of the sun

if there was an apt description

when you’re seen waving in the garden air

it’s the sight of little blue fairies

navigating the gardener to your parent plant

keep looking! – they say, as

little children hunt around the garden border

expecting to see fairies dancing in the wind

Outer Space

#coloryourworld #cyw #outerspace

Picture created with Colorfy

looking out into the night sky,

it’s difficult to tell what colour outer space is

we paint it black – like a sheet of silk

and those far off dots in the fabric ? far off mystical worlds

we gave them names – and put them in stories

myths and legends, told many moon rises ago

Aries to the Huntsman we follow with pride

through telescopic lenses or newspapers inside

and the robots we send to examine these stars

landing on the moon, and venus and mars

are the UFO pilots playing hide and seek ?

Its a question the scientists ask every week.

Treasure

Treasure

Taken from merchant ships, by

Rascals of the seven seas

Every pirate worth their salty sea legs

Admires the prize of jewels, silver and gold doubloons

Some keep their precious horde hidden

Under tropical sands , deserted shores – only

Revealed many moons later by a younger

Explorer, following the pirates charts and maps

Griffin

Mythical

Mighty mystical creature of folklore old

Your reputation goes before you

Terrorising the neighbourhoods in days of yore

Head of an eagle, body of a lion

Invincible in flight – no knight could catch you,

Capturer of any treasure hunter wanting to get your gold

Altai mountain kings regard you as their guard

Looking after jewels brought up from the cavesgriffin
