Weekday

Woven tween Tuesday and Thursday

Woden’s Day – named after a saxon god

and a sign – when you wake up

weekend is on its way

Alert

#Writeclub #Prompt

11th May 2020

I wrote this in response to the Write Clubs “Home/Alert” Prompt and thought i’d share with my fellow wordpressers – enjoy

Railway

The news from Network Rail rang out

“To make people aware

In the event of an alert

Three sharp blasts

Will be heard from the

Station Masters whistle”

The day carried on

As rushing commuters

Grabbed vital space

Like sardines in tins

Without tomato sauce

But then out of the air

The people were aware

Of a shrill high tone

Three sharp blasts

To chill to the bone

All engines stopped

At signals propped

By station master – No glee

That signal you see ?

He was brewing up tea!

Music

Bird on a wire

#SocS #Wire

Battery operated radio ?

if you have one of these – expect interruptions

right about now there’s a small feathered friend

doing the fandango up and down on the receiver of the signal

outside and if you

notice a crackle or two – its down to that.

Analogue radio seems to pick up the dancing

Waltzing up and down the aerial

if you listen very carefully – you’ll hear the birds

reacting wildly – so

expect to hear a cheep or two through your headphones

Carriage

#fowc #carriage

Sat by the platform

it waits for the sign as

gentlemen and ladies alike

now make their way to their furnished cabins

a wonderful journey to places wonderful

lakes mountains and streams – but they have to wait for the flag

Whistle

#Fowc #Whistle #Acrostic

When the pea begins to rattle, the noise

Hits the high notes

It’s time for the action to begin, a

Signal from the official

Time to get underway

Let’s get moving

Excitement – building
