Brown Feathered Canada Geese

Bringing an aire of nature to the painters palette

Red mixes with yellow and that colour goes darker as

Orange meets black and blue

Wild Animals have this colour in their fur , feathers and quills

Notably the geese who fly across town

Hope you liked this short acrostic for #CYW – Here’s another link to a poem with a brown theme – https://inkdrops.blog/2019/09/08/chocolate-4

The Journey

Poetry

#writephoto #thejourney

Salford (via Rochdale and Oldham), 17th August 2019

A Walker on a hill.

a tale of a rambler , by inky for the writephoto challenge

He went a walk with an empty backpack and staff

off to get a loaf of bread

many hadn’t heard from him for days, some

even thought him dead

For his boot prints went on and on

for what others saw as miles

past footpath and valley , hill and dale

and spot of nature where he’d stay a while

enjoying the fine weather

the silence and peace

and wildlife around him

it was a release

Drawing a scene half way up a hill

taking in sunshine and cup o’ tea till

time came to face his fate

coming back home far too late

Nest (Another View)

Nature, Poetry

#Fowc #Nest #Nature

Birds nest in the guttering
nesting in the guttering

Above my head, by the window ledge

a family of birds is living on the edge

living in a nest in view of my eye

occasionally searching for food do they fly

Waking me up with their earliest call

transcending the windows and solid brick walls

flying to treetops through clouds in the air

and searching out berries without a care

Bluebells

Flowers, Nature

Another scribble for the coloryourworld month by inky.

Artwork by Inky – created in painter from google stock art

Birds follow the noise of these colourful flowers

Lightly swaying in the spring breeze

Under the cover of a spruce they’re spread

Enjoying the protection from the passing showers

Beautiful colours to please the eye

Encompassing the area around the tree roots

Launching into a dance routine – upon arrival of the Bees and Butterflies

Landing on the flowers to collect the nectar

Rock

Music, Nature

A post in response to the Tuesday Photo Challenge from Inky

What’s with the guitar Inky ?

I thought i’d start with the musical link – an electric guitar. Clapton, May, Deacon come to mind. It’s loud but in time is methodical, and lyrical – its also the nearest thing to an electrical instrument that doesn’t need a programmer….it does need an amplifier though

Much like the Rocks you find on your average beach….(eh?)

Noisy little rocks on Kos

When the waves smack against the rocks its a bit like a percussion instrument. Depending on your location on the beach, the noises can be soft , hard or downright noisy, as the waves lap slap and crash against the shore

Get the wind to go through the holes in the rock, and you could be mistaken for hearing music being played, as theres a definate sound as the wind makes its way round the rock.

Add a chirp or two following the sound of the rocks and the sea – you have a three piece band 🙂

Reminiscent of something i read in Terry Pratchett’s Discworld Novel Soul Music

Music with Rocks in – Quite a ring to it too.

And all of this is Acoustic….no electric required.

Salford, 23rd March 2019

Modified from an instagram post i posted this morning,

When i wake up

What do i see, beyond the works of

Writing on my desk ?

Wide, are the curtains flung – from

West to east – bringing light to the painted

walls where i do most of my scribbling

Marshmallow pillows float

softly in Salford Skies as

flocks of feathered friends

return from their alfresco restaurant, to

five star accommodation – peering across towards my way

as they enjoy the view.
