Pink Carnation

A Pink Carnation (Image : Brian F Kirkham)

#CYW #Carnation-Pink

Popping up around the spring

its the kind of flower that likes a party

noted for its use as a buttonhole flower

keeping up appearances at family occasions

Curves more wiggly than your

average rose

rows upon rows keep each other standing up,

not falling over

at the nearest breath of wind.

they don’t look much, but once trimmed and located

in a gentleman’s suit buttonhole

on a family occasion, they

never fail to impress the guests

Burnt Orange

A head to turn heads

When you entered the room

Instantly, you turned the boys heads

Like Desdemona had arrived

Dynamic

Heaven’s angel mixed with Hell’s fury

Only time would decide what happened next

Meeting up with old friends

By the banks of the waterside

Reality – you would be back at your post come morning

Expectations – out of the window.

Atmosphere

Atmospheric

lighting-18

Cast that whitelight through the prism

and let the colours scatter, we’ll be

reeling and a rocking , jumping and a jiving

under the rainbow of coloured lights till morning

maybe we’ll meet some one special –

bopping to the beat – its quite an

atmosphere

Zingy little fruit,

full of zest and flavor

and powerful punch

 

perfect , placed in a jelly

sparky flavours contained in

a porcelain mould

 

Sparks of delight

pop off on the tongue

and your luminosity

 

Green for go ! your sign

the party power switches

are all turned on

Relish

Relish

Really summery days see days on the front lawn

Everyone in a straight

Line, waiting for the meats on the grill and chef

Inviting them to try,

Something tasty and flavoursome on their

Hot Dog, Burger or Veggie Delight

The Reunion

One More Time

Coloured lights flicker off
the big glitter ball
as you arrive at the dance
at the old school hall

Friends from your past,
Greet with a cheer
as you are the one,
they want to be near!

All of those faces, from days of old
Come into the warmth, and out of the cold
and the faces around you, don’t seem to have changed
You thought they’d forgot you
They all know your name

You talk with your chums,
remembering the time
when you were in French
Conversing your lines

And the girl you once fancied
is at the back of the room
Remembering the light
you gave in the gloom

You’re all drinking things
Not allowed in that time
as you reminisce with Bitter
or Vodka and Lime

Now she’s dancing wi’ Girlfriends
to a tune you both knew,
She’s 16 again
and you’re feeling Blue.

She walks across the hall
and calls out your name.
You raise a smile
and take part in her game.

And as she skips across sweetly
grabbing hold of your hand,
you both dance together
to the sound of the band
