Midnight Blue

#CYW #MidnightBlue

Moonlight

Moonlight brings a spot of colour to nightime

it brings a touch of blue to a

dreamy scene…highlighting the

number of marshmallow clouds floating

in the sky around the moon

gravitating tween the moon and her reflection in the

half-light dispersed by the water of

the lake below

Lantern

Lantern

Salford 23rd June 2020

Lighting up the darkness

as the Sun dips below the horizon

night-time seems an awful lot friendlier with

them , as they brighten the dark gloom

enlightening any stroll in the

rolling dark blue shades of

night-time, until Luna pops up behind a cloud

Last Glow

Last Glow of a Spring night (Image: B.F Kirkham)

Salford 24th May 2020


Spring is making a path for Summer

passing a baton to warmer times and

rallying the last bit of light from the evening

it may be late – but the moon hasn’t shown in

northern skies just yet – the sun is

glowing just enough to keep a blueness in the sky

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

The Moon, Sky, Stars and Sea

Salford 27th April 2020

#Napowrimo #writeclub #Dreams #Metaphor

The moon is a bright shiny Ten Pence piece

The sky is a furry dark blanket

The stars are little sequins reflecting on that blanket

The sea is a vast mirror, reflecting whats above

The Moon is a beacon for space travelling mice

The sky is the map they use to travel about

The stars are the destinations on that map

The sea the place they hide their spaceship

The moon lights up the sky at night

The sky keeps a kite up in flight

The stars play with the new thing in the sky

The sea watches on, and moves on by

Together

Sun bobbing down the horizon – photo provided by sue vincent

#Writephoto #together

They’re quite a team – the Sun and the Moon

On the whole they’re quite phenomenal

Giving the people that live on Mother earth, summat to look at

Each day they work either side of this blue jewel

The Sun giving light to one half while the Moon shines on the other

Helping fishermen land their catches, and Night workers to find their way home

Earth helping both by turning around

Rotating to catch the light

Fireworks

Manchester, Fireworks Night

Fifth of November,

is the day remembered, When

royalists decided to have an

exciting time under the palace of

westminster

of course, their plan went

really wrong, as they were caught by men with

keys to the cellar – where the gunpowder was kept

so instead of the palace burning – the royalists lost their heads!

A Wave - Cerulean Blue Colour

#CYW #Colour #Ocean #Blue #Octpowrimo

It’s that colour you see far off

when you’re sat on the beach

looking at the horizon

and you’re looking at the water far away

Could it be that colour that

entered the sky when the

roundness of the sun

ups and leaves the sky

leaving it darker with only

earths moon in the sky to provide

a light on the ground below ?

new moons shine on this colours curtain

A weekend writing prompt from https://Sammiesscribbles.wordpress.com

Poem or Prose in 28 Words – Okay!!!!

Polar bears are partying

under nights light show

the snow is twinkling

with various different colours

moving about on ice

like the mirrorball chasing

the disco floor beams

Balefire

Salford, Thursday 24th October 2019

They’d spent days planning this

sourcing the location

and the straw to build

their balefire

The structure they said

would have to be sound

for the safety of little uns

watching around

so they stacked up the straw

and waited for dawn

before setting alight

the straw and the thorn

And whilst straw burned away

things glowed in the air

as rockets and whistlers

lit up the fair
