MLMM – Time

#MLMM #Taleweaver #Time

A piece from the notebooks for this prompt – enjoy….Inky.

Time has many colours
The golden grains of sand in summer
that change the further south you go
moving by plane or wheels to and fro

Time denotes a special treat
An egg at easter, or a birthday type eat
or opening presents on Christmas morn
parents watch as the wrapping is torn

Time measures cooking of your Breakfast egg
or your Sunday Ham or Roast Lamb Leg
Time is the Now and the then on the Line
which crafts the drink from the grape on the vine

Time never stops, time moves on
that moment goes by, and then it has gone
Sand passes through chamber, and moves on the hand
of the watch on your wrist, humble or grand

And scholars of old, note history
of the Time, where men and women fought tyranny
A precious resource – its there, then its gone
Till your time runs out – but time moves on

Freezing

If you think you’re feeling cold today

count yourself lucky

you could be a bird

hanging about in the winter time

tending to its clutch of eggs

while cold winds from the north

blow through the trees

that said, you could be a fish

down in the water of the darkest sea

the ice might be on the surface

cold and bright white

but its perishing below

you could be a vegetable

freshly picked today

and put in a bag with others

before you can get away

then stored in a great big chiller

with the door closed behind you with ease

its a hardlife, living as it does

as a garden pea.

In Flight

#Octpowrimo #Birds #Flight

The weathers confusing

the migrating birds

in flocks they meet –

to have a few words

You see by now they’d be heading

to some place thats warm

away from the cold

that would be the norm

but the weather has shifted

as well as the tide

making it harder for the

birds to decide

so they’re flitting tween dockside

and birdfeeder and roof

till they’ve spotted its cold

and head off – aloof

Emerging

#Writephoto #Emerging

Everybody – keep calm

may as it seen – it looks like a giant coming through the wall

every forester knows who it is – its Pan!

reviving the trees and preparing them for autumn

green grasses being pushed up by his fingers

it might come as a shock – but hes a busy guy this time of year

note how the seeds are opening up and falling to

ground ? Thats all down to him

Oulipo

Summer feast by KM Neumann – Original poem can be found at poetrysoup.com

Secret rendezvous in the wooden tremeloes

dripping with soft morning diadem

Motifs giving rise to mounting desire

Oaths seeding ligntning and naked cadent

pining for confessors of passion and pleasure

nautilus knows best how to refuse souffle

in bedlam with soft underpass and cantilever

Basic instinct – foundations for growth

an Octane of lower class, patient and kind

drizzle for sherpa, peculiar and shelves

Sump stove surfing a shortcut return

bead hydrant full of mandacity and reformation

Spring Green

Spring green Leafs – colorful Background Blur

Signs are there that, finally, possibly

persistent winter weather is on its way out

returning to the trees – signs of life

in the form of bright green leaves

note the winds are slowing down and its

getting warmer outside

Myriad

#fowc #Myriad

Call it a time of changing seasons

the winter has finally gone – its spring

and the seeds that were sleeping down in the soil

have popped up to say hello

along with a myriad of birds and

wonderfully coloured butterflies

Taking Shelter

#weather #snow #birds

Falling ice
isn’t the best
festive present
for our feathered friends
so for a few flighting hours
they sit atop the tallest trees
where they take shelter
under the fronds
of an evergreen branch
while watching
balanced snowballs
above their heads

Autumn Leaves Cutout, Created by Inky

I’d call it the colour of autumn

a sign from the leaves on the trees

that winter is on its way

the mercury is retreating ,

and something a little colder is replacing

the warm colours

its pleasing to the eye

for it is the last we’ll see of the deciduous leaves

till spring

Changing colours

#Seasons #Autumn #Poetry #Nature

Acer’s changing colour scheme (Image by Inky, Camera: Sony H3311)

A Sign that winters on the way

Up in the trees, the leaves colours are changing

There hangin’ on to their branches for dear life but

Unless you haven’t noticed – greens have been swapped for

Mostly Reds and Browns, with yellows inbetween

Note though – occasional splashes of crimson – Christmas coming early ?
