They said they’d be friends for ever

as they watched the magical sight

a merger of magical colour

bringing colour to the night

but then – a terrible happening

hit them both stone dead

as a flying piece of asteroid

hit them both as they planned to be wed

but as night fell after the morning

the two lovebirds returned to the spot

and continued to go there each night time

long after family and friends had forgot

Looking : A Found Poem

#Love #Romance #Poetry

Salford 14th January 2019

another found poem by me via Spike Milligans Box 18

I’ve stopped looking for that diamond

that brightens up my day

the beauty of your eyes

still capture me in the evening light

as we pass each other by

and memories of walking through the daisy patch

still return – fresh in the mind

Time passes

Salford, 20th December

She walked though the Christmas market

Still wearing the Christmas cracker ring

Some lad from her past gave her

Sentimentality ? Perhaps, but then

Something told her, one day they’d meet again

Solitude, the vehicle that drove her to

See her sweetheart under the town hall clock,

Stars meeting up when eye met eye

Rendezvous

Manchester (via salford) 16th December 2018

The on line post it notes

Continued to drop in my in box

Reminiscences from a female acquaintance

I knew since I was small.

Meet you by the market

Where the gluhwein flows

And the big tree is lit up by the national grid

So, off to town goes Charlie Brown

To meet his gorgeous tinker-belle

Wrapped up like a bug

All nice and snug

Where under the lights

Of Christmas bright, we walk round the stalls

Decorating the halls

And after a repast and a drink

A kiss in the square where

We met up, there.

Fireworks on the dance floor

I

I wanna be that fellow

That dances with the redhead

In a Viennese waltz

At the end of the night

Ii

I want to guide her

Around the floor

Her dainty feet skipping

Off the glitter ball lights

Iii

Eyes on the prize

As lights skip on the floor

And Rose Red dances delightfully

With her Prince Charming

Iv

Captivated by her delicate poise

Our movement just floating … hardly a noise

And watching us both….a bit of a crowd

Though it’s only the music that seems a bit loud

V

Fireworks ? Magic as we travel around floor

The crowd they applaud and yell out for more

But as spotlight leaves us, something they’ll miss

In the dark of a second, a surreptitious kiss

Dancing on the moon

From out of relative darkness

Comes brightness

Was it the moment of clarity

Brought about by the smile of Luna

Or that single moment

When you smiled, at the simple fact

I couldn’t live without you

For now I’m skipping and hopping

Out on the stars

Because of three simple words

Whispered softly in my ear

Unable to connect

unabletoconnect

Do computers show any emotion ?

even now, there’s a silver grey laptop

in an urgent call across fibreoptics

to communicate with a rose red tower system – many miles away

yet, silver’s call – lost in translation

Standstill

Standstill

Time stands still for a while

a second before

i think i caught the eye

of the girl in the polka dot dress

so while everythings frozen in time

i casually make my way over the platform

and pop a message in her bag

will it work?

Time will only tell

Rebel

You were always the one in school

that caused a scene

causing young heads to turn

at your juvenile antics

Wearing the Uniform

the way you wanted

raising an eye

of the deputy head

They called you “Cool”

and your pals all circled

as school rules fell

and school skirts rose

The defiant red haired streak

got you noticed

by the more butch kids

in the school playground

But at the end of the day

the lad that you wanted

never looked back

leaving you – disappointed
