Masquerade

Sat on the jetty

As Sun switches with Moon

Waiting for the boat

Moonlight Rendezvous

With Boy of her hearts desire

and tasty picnic

Face hidden by mask

Girl unknown to the new boy

passed in the corridor

Fragrant

#fowc #napowrimo #fragrant

I don’t know what made me fall for you

was it the beauty of your face

the way your eyes shone like sapphires?

or perhaps it was the way

while you were at the marble chopping board

you could put together a spice mix

that was sweeter than any rose in the garden?

Way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, wrote a wise man

But he’ll never forget the way you captured mine

mixing it up in the kitchen

Valentine in a time of Lockdown

#Valentinesday

passing in corridors

two masqueraded , star crossed lovers

leaving each other small heartfelt notes

on each others stations

message clear – as eyes meet

for the briefest of moments

before the next admission comes in

Plunge

#fowc #plunge

In the warmth of a Roasting Grecian Sun

the cocky young adventurer

might have been forgiven by his elders

for trying to impress the maids sat by the beach

what he didn’t know

was the water that day was more arctic than athenian

and made his heart leap quicker than the girls

Locked away

#writephoto #Lock #Key

What lay beyond the hard wooden door

was anybody’s guess

secrets of a hidden passion

concealed by a key

and confidants of the secret

were careful not to spill

after cleaning up from the night before

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

#promptuarium #prompt

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.

Poetry Romance

Fragile heart

i gave her my heart

and she took a hammer to it

shattering as it did in pieces

across the dance hall floor

in one moment

and a fleeting goodbye kiss

she left me standing in the middle of the sparkle lit room

with a crowd and a mark

Filled the passing hours

with nothing but a face

casting eyes over

old photographs

took time to rebuild

the emotional jigsaw

a piece of the jigsaw lies missing

could that be you ?
