Change in the weather

Salford, 28th August 2020

The bird’s seem to have got the message

The mercury is in retreat

A nip in the air – you’re feeling

As you’re heading down the street

Clouds of grey are gathering

waiting for their time

to sprinkle their raindrops down on the ground

blocking out the sunshine

And while cold air for autumn

seems to be the norm

our feathered friends have headed off

someplace tropical and warm

Don’t Fret though – as soon as the sunshine burns

those feathered friends, who flew off will return

land with little uns – who will have grew

onto a patch of green grass nearby you

Rainfall

Salford, 23rd August 2020

Moving across the sky

Magnificent clouds of grey

Move to offload their cargo

Angels tears dropping

As the creator drops something heavy

And says something angry (and naughty)

Collecting in crevices on community streets

Creating puddles and in some cases mini reservoirs

Children playing in plastic macs and colourful wellies

Lightning

Like a flash in the pan

It appears from the clouds

Going quickly through the atmosphere

Heading for the ground

Thunder noisily telling you that

not that far away – buckets of water will be falling soon

Illuminating that message in brief bursts

Night skies lit up in a spectacular display – it’s

Going to get wet – very soon….

Falling

#Writephoto #Cascade

From out of the clouds they come

a torrent of aqueous creatures

lunging towards the destination they

long to be at, following each other

in a race to be the first in the

navy blue waters

going over the edge

Respite

#FOWC #Respite

How i wish the rain would give me a break

Even now, concentric circles are being created

In the wells and cracks of the tarmac outside

Garden’s might appreciate the water – but its not what i’d call

Hot, the rain is decidedly cold today

Hopes are, mother nature will provide a little respite

On which occasion – i won’t get drenched in the stairrods

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….

“Weather”

5th February 2019

Red skies at Night, Shepherds Delight…..

Red Sky at Night, Shepherds Delight - an example.

This old phrase is still around today.

It was the shepherds way of telling fine weather – a red sky at night normally foretold of fine weather next morning

Whilst a red sky in the morning, normally was followed by grey clouds in the skies above. It gave the shepherd time to get his flock onto lower ground and avoid an immediate drenching 🙂

We’re not out of winter yet in the UK, no matter what the met office say, and I’ve known it snow in March, despite it being technically Spring.

Teardrops

The thought of it just being the

Evolution of evaporation

and condensation, doesn’t

ring true with me. Up there with the

Deity, helping create the mountains and

Rivers, the angels have heard their boss

On occasion when he’s hit his thumb with a hammer

Precipitation? Maybe if you are solely a geographer

Something tells me it’s the angels crying!

Umbrella

#octpowrimo #umbrella #acrostic #life #friends

Monday, 15th October

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

Rain

#rain #clouds #weather #waterimage.jpg

rivers of water fall from sky

clouds have had falling out again

droplets of water cling to glass

not wanting to drop into sewers

fighting gravity to stop imminent splashes
