Invisible

In response to the prompt at Patricia’s place…here’s the link

It’s like you’re not there

Identification….difficult at best

If only you would engage in a conversation,

I’d be overjoyed to talk to you, but

It’s like you have vanished into thin air

WiFi

#wifi #fowc

Salford, 13th March

An acrostic on WiFi technology in response to fandangos one word challenge

Wireless….

It’s like your stereo, but it’s much more

Fun….particularly if you like gaming

It allows you to move around with your devices

World Wide Web

In the palm of your hands

For the time you need

Instant information

Wondering around

In the great outdoors, whilst

Following the goings on at home on

Instagram, Facebook, and twitter

Where would we be without this technology?

Internet and telephone

Fixed into the wall….dial up networks ?

It’s not fun at all…you’re waiting forever to connect

Salford, 10th March 2019

The wind was brewing up a storm

under the feet of the resident pigeon flock

swirling around and giving

some of our feathered chums – quite a hard time of it.

luckily the nearby building works gave some shelter

expect more tomorrow, as the winds brother comes up for a visit

Delta

Salford 3rd March

The engineers who design the roads

have really outdone themselves this time

in the middle of the road, the raindrops fall,

nestling in sunken tarmac pools – they look like a map of

great lakes….

Little bird

Salford 1st March

Like a bullet

It flew down the street

Towards the other side of the dual carriageway and

The waterside

Local cats, couldn’t catch him

Even if they tried – he was too far up to reach

Before our feathered friend

Islands of Plenty – with seeds galore

Ready to be eaten by our feathered friend and his chums

Dropped on a patch of green

Alarm Clock

27th February 2019

As the sun dipped below the horizon

and changed shift with his pal the moon

something constant kept on moving

second hand moving the minutes

whilst the hour hand waited to move forward

and a marker sat like a sentry

ready to fire a fifteen gun salute

cats birds and dogs, creep outside slowly

wailing beyond the double glazed glass

and the cogs keep the hands moving

till the minute hand meets the marker

and hammer meets bell – time to get up.

Commitment

An acrostic in response to Iscriblrs freedom of expression challenge

Could it be

Over time and days

Moments you would call ‘voluntary’, were

Much more that that, as

In time you invest … something more than money

The effort, the graft and all for

Mere thanks for filling in the role

Expected

Noted perhaps, at a particular point in

the organisations calendar

#Football

To readers the other side of the big pond – a poem about football or what you call soccer – Inky

While the greats are revered in Bronze

New idols are to be cheered on by the fans

At both ends of the East Lancashire Road

Fans follow every kick , head every ball

Cajoling the ball past the opposition

and bending the ball to safety

Who was it who said

“You never win anything with Kids” ?

The veteran of the Liverpool Side

should have seen it coming

for there’s young lads from Liverpool and Manchester

now tearing down the green grass

Fork in the road

9th February 2019

#Travel #Journey #Poetry #Decisions

You’ve travelled straight down this road

for what seems like an age

heading for a destination, unplanned

life seems so uncomplicated

following the signs in blue

and passing the trees in green

when all of a sudden – a yellow alert

a fork in the road

One way to the peaks , the other to Wales

Decision to be made

Blue John or Welsh Mountain Stone ?

Roast Dinner or Fish and Chips ?
