Manchester, 16th October 2019

I was in Manchester yesterday, on the hunt for a new pair of spectacles.

Walking through Piccadilly gardens, I noticed something to bring a smile to the grimmest of people….They’ve turned the water back on the fountains!!!!

Fountains, Piccadilly Gardens, Manchester (Image : (P) Brian F Kirkham)

Flying high into the northern skies

Orchestrated jets of water…

Unprepared pedestrians to the Gardens

Now get wet as they cross

Though, the youngsters seem to enjoy

Ambling through the watery pavements, tiptoing

inbetween the jets of water

navigating towards the skies of the city centre as

spectrums of coloured lights pass through them

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.

Here’s Another poem on a tree seed Helicopters, feel free to take a look and comment

Spire

spire

an acrostic on by inky about Stowell spire on the corner of Trafford Road , in Salford

Soaring up to the heavens

Perhaps it be fitting – the old church spire be

Illuminated – lighting up the

Roads and pavements around it

Everybody knows it as a local landmark
