Dancing on the moon

#octpowrimo

From out of relative darkness

Comes brightness

Was it the moment of clarity

Brought about by the smile of Luna

Or that single moment

When you smiled, at the simple fact

I couldn’t live without you

For now I’m skipping and hopping

Out on the stars

Because of three simple words

Whispered softly in my ear

Squirrel

Octpowrimo, 29th October 2018

Signs that winter is on its way

Quite inquisitive fellow made his way across the garden fence

Under the fir trees and around the hyacinths

In search, of something

Round , red brown, and tasty to

Restock his larder for winter

Every now and then looking around, protecting his hide

Looking for morsels in every inch of the garden

Changing

#octpowrimo

The trees are changing

As the temperature drops

As fast as the rain

Vibrant greens transform

Into a picturesque palette5

Of reds and browns

Signs of mercury

Travelling swiftly towards

The thermometer bulb

And deciduous trees all

Shed their leaves and seeds

In attempt to create new plants

Plain sight

#octpowrimo #hidden #dragons

the mighty dragons didn’t disappear,

reality is…they took a different form

each knight giving up their quest of vanquish as

every dragon decided to rest among the greens

Seen hiding in the forests, or swimming in the depths

In retreat

#octpowrimo

winters calling,

in some ways, the mercury retreating was

notably a sign from the thermometer

travelling swiftly toward the bulb

even the food has changed from salads to

roasts and shepherds pie

Umbrella

An acrostic by inky

Problems occur like the morning rain

Reality is, that’s what life has to throw at you

Each little problem, obstacle or challenge

Can topple you in an instant , however

In case you need them … there are

People who can help you,

In your hour of need

They’re there at a moments notice

An umbrella from the dropping rain

They’re your friends, pals, buddies

In sight, in rain or shine

On good days or bad

Never forgetting you and bringing a smile

Tortured

taken into consideration

over years of treatment, therapy, and exercise

reaction to my medical condition could be

taken as torture as

under orders from the quacks I’ve been

really put through the ringer…

even though , looking back, it was doing me good

An ink explosion

#octpowrimo #ifiwereyou

opinion is a wonderful thing

but after you’ve vented your spleen

across two pages of finest vellum

re read, recollect your thoughts, and rewrite

for once you’ve stuck it in the envelope

and it’s journeyed to the news paper

a different edition of who you are

will be plastered over the letters page

and though you won’t see them

all eyes will turn on you

Falling through the cracks

It’s hard for a seed

To grow up in the big city

As it flies from its mum

And falls to the floor

Drifting in the wind

If lucky, it will land

Onto soft warm soil

But usually, it finds concrete

So it sleeps , and it grows

Fed by the rain

While it finds its own way

Through the sand and the drains

Popping up for sunshine

To the world saying hello

Don’t pull it from the pavement

For a bit, let it grow.
