Salford 21st February 2020

A tale of ‘recovery’ from brain injury by inky

#Fowc #Progress

I

Waking up

Washing face

Without falling or dropping stuff or

Walking out of place

Progress

II

Remembering a face from a

Reel of names without

Reaction causing

Regurgitation

Progress

III

Collecting your Cocoa from

Carol at Costa without

Causing an earthquake

Causing Cascades to the floor

Progress

IV

Reading a really good book, while

Relaxing, without

Rolling into a deep

Sleep

Progress

V

Remembering what you went

Right down the stairs for – without

Reactions, disturbances or plain forgetfulness

Still

Water by a bank – image from S.C. Vincent

#Writephoto #Still

Sitting by the water , taking in the view

The inhabitants must be sleeping – i thought i’d see a few

In fact all i see is reflections, of the trees a while away

Lined up, all upside down – but seen as clear as day, while

Looking for fish, as i laze away

Rumor

#FOWC #Rumor

Reading some tittle-tattle in the morning press ?

Unless there’s something that sticks – don’t worry! – It’ll

Make wonderful wrapping for fish suppers tomorrow

Of course – these things come from your actions

Reality will make you make a statement if its true

Achievement

#poetry #learning #expectation

Salford 16th February

A piece on school visits

Three coaches rolled up in the car park

One blue, one black, one green

Passing auntie, the football and the shops

Traffic jams were no fun

Or Waiting for the man with the sign to

Pass go from stop

There were grumbles getting off the coach

Old Trafford exchanged for the war museum

Pupils listening to sir, bore on

The security …. more of the same, but

Out of a corner….a new name

Person from a new place….change of space

Tanks and planes…new things to see

Objects to touch….and all for free

People to tell tales of air land and sea

And your guide at the entrance is about the space

A person to turn to with a friendly face

Telling a tale of the car, plane and gun

Making your visit a bit more fun

Riddle

#Fowc #Riddle

Rhymes that pose a question

In verse, or a song or a Rhyme

Difficult posers to ponder

Definitely takes you some time

Long winded questions – with no apparent answer

Except when the bell starts to chime

Sketchy

#fowc #sketchy

Doodle from Soccer Alex @ Photobucket.com

Some say, there’s the start of a masterpiece in that notebook of hers

Kept in a top draw of her work desk

End pieces for show ? No, but look beyond the layers of random doodle

There’s the beginnings of something that

Could be talked about by art critics for many years to come – but for now

Held away, till she’s ready for the world to see it

You could take a sneaky peek – but you would only see the first splat on the canvas

Prerogative

#fowc #prerogative

Picking out your own path

Really doesn’t need anyones permission

Even if you seek advice

Roads they travel down are down to you

Of course, there will be times you may

Go down the wrong route,

Reaction to that ? It’s part of the learning process

And the final decision is down to you…

There’s always another turn in the road, and

If you don’t like a particular path you can

Veer away from it if you want to

Expect a surprise or two…that’s life!

Golden

#CYW #Gold

There’s nothing better than a summer sky

warm coloured tones of

corn or wheat growing in the farmers field

or maybe the thought

of sinking your toes into warm golden sands

before dipping them in the sea

breakfast dinner or tea – wonderous eggs

dipped with bread soldiers

for an afternoon feast

Tribal

#Fowc #Football #Soccer #Rugby

Two crowds sit on their

Respective rumps, cheering on the warriors

In their tribes colours Red or Blue

By the end of the first act

A tribe at one end of the ground is jubilant

Leaping in the air – whilst the other isn’t so happy

Furry Bear

#Cyw #Fuzzywuzzybrown

Sat by his cave , somewhere in the zoo

a relative of your old pal – winnie the pooh

climbing his branches , carefully placed

and giving his luncheon a bit of a taste

looks out at the crowd like it’s a TV

and then he goes off – in search of honey
