I

A Hub of ideas

technology, reading, and leisure

pondering over

which of them will be read or listened to

First

II

Bag, ready to travel

North south east or west

journeying with essential items

things that cannot be left behind

at home

III

Tallest of the conifers

protecting the smaller plants

from the rain wind and snow

now covered

in snowflakes

Comfort

#fowc #comfort

Cold weather isn’t nice to be out in, so

on winter days, you’ll find me wrapped up with a

mug of warm hot chocolate in my paws and

furry slippers on my feet – while

outside its snowing and blowing a gale – i’m

reading a book inside, looking out of the window now and then

toasty and warm, away from the cold

Reference

#fowc #reference

Really, there’s always one place in

Every library that you can get all the answers

From atlases to chronicles to news articles

Every bit of info is there – which is why the

Revered keepers of these books keep them from leaving the library

Even keeping them in their own section

Now, the good news is – you can access them

Choice reading handy for homework – just don’t

Expect to walk home with them – they’re staying in the library

Education : A Found Poem

Education has produced a vast population

They spend twelve months

teaching children to walk and then talk

and the next twelve years

teaching them to sit down and shut up

when all you have to do

is teach them all to read

its a source of amusement and fun

to happy little minds

what makes me pick up a book

if this reads like a bit of a list, apologies

funny tales, interesting characters, a bit of a thread

tales I can return to….the jokes might be a bit old, but I can still get a laugh at them

evidence ?   Terry pratchetts troll sergeant…detritus,

<detritus> troll brains don’t work right in klatch….it’s the heat…if I went to klatch…I’d be really stoopid

<Vimes> detritus…

<detritus> yes sir ?

<Vimes> never go to klatch

#CFFC #Books

It’d be true to say – I like reading.

I go for books with a bit of character in them,  Goscinny and Uderzos Asterix books were a favourite of mine as a kid – and I’ve now got my hands on six anniversary editions

Bedtime Reading

My favourite author is Terry Pratchett, he created some brilliant characters. And I’m happy to say I had the pleasure of meeting the man himself at a Waterstones bookstore in Manchester, before his untimely death. One day i’ll have the nerve to pick up and read his final epic – the shepherds crown – but till then I’ll satisfy my discworld fever, by reading one of this lot (and the smaller paperbacks)

and when i’m bored with that (NEVER! sic) youll find me skimming through my comedy collection – The Goons, Monty Python, Morecambe and wise and Scott adams

Inkling

Inkling

Ideas dropped on a page

notes dropped in a particular order

keeping the reader of the piece engaged

like clues for the detective resident in your mind

interacting – but not giving you the whole scenario

next guesses are down to you – It’s

going to be a scintillating read, as you go through the twists and turns

Study

A few thoughts by inky on todays daily prompt

Study

Sat in a room, lined with literary works

The lad peers through his assessment

Understandably, he might not produce the works of Keats this evening, but with

Dutiful observance, and conscientious research – he might just do well at his
