“Weather”

5th February 2019

Red skies at Night, Shepherds Delight…..

Red Sky at Night, Shepherds Delight - an example.

This old phrase is still around today.

It was the shepherds way of telling fine weather – a red sky at night normally foretold of fine weather next morning

Whilst a red sky in the morning, normally was followed by grey clouds in the skies above. It gave the shepherd time to get his flock onto lower ground and avoid an immediate drenching 🙂

We’re not out of winter yet in the UK, no matter what the met office say, and I’ve known it snow in March, despite it being technically Spring.

Conquered

6th October 2018

You’ve been trying to climb that hill for a while now

facing off against its challenges

its crags, sharp sides and slippy hand holds

not to mention the wet slate underneath

dark purples your pals as you rose

overcoming every obstacle in your way

take in the rewards at the top

the view of the blue sky – its lovely.

Sunset over Alykanas

I watched
with my feet still sat in wet sand
as the evening skies faded
like a fire in outer space
day turned slowly into night
and silver fish still circled
as a central point of
fire and ice
waited for the many moons
in the grecian sky to settle in their spots
like diamonds in the sky

Salford 9th July 2018

The light little cirrus and stratus

help themselves to their

own little place in the sky

until the cloud departs they’ll be overlooked by the

great thinker of the skies himself – cumulonimbus – who’s

happily floating over the air

thinking about their next destination

some might call them Marshmallows, others call them ‘thought stores’

Looking for rainbows in cloudless skies

Translation for those who don’t get it….be happy 😃

Look for the colour in your life….and if you can’t find any add some 😊

Disappear

Disappear

where did he go ?

that master of the air

flying his plane without a care

he drifted his wings out into the fog

over the plains and the wet soggy bogs

and the plane spotters radioed out to the skies

hoping his plane would return in surprise

but over the radio the controller was in tears

our master aviator …in the skies….disappeared!

Bubble

Bubble

bubble rising

up high in the

blue skies, floating and

bobbing about in the air

light as a feather, and bringing a smile to

excitable little faces

Sat on a branch of a silver birch or oak

waiting for the rest of the gang to catch up

a wonder of the skies takes a break

letting himself have a rest before taking off again

little bird of blue white and black

over the heights he looks, planning

where he will swoop to next

A whole host of clouds float in

blue skies

over your head

very interesting to look at, but

expect some water to fall if any turn grey
