Always take the weather with you

#writeclub #napowrimo

Cheers to Beth @ writeclub for the prompt

Sunny days always bring a smile to the face

blue skies bring good cheer

even when they hide behind clouds

rainbows suddenly appear

gloomy thoughts are downright wrong

rain isn’t my favourite weather

bright blue skies should always apply

when its spring or winter – whenever!

On a Hunt

#Seagulls #city #coast #fish

They’d heard that a bounty was nearby

a plunder of wonderous delight

they scoured the skies in expectation

staying up for morning and night

They didn’t care much for the metals

though the magpies would take ‘owt that was shiny

the seagulls didn’t care for the metals that glared

for they’d swallow anything that was tiny

What they wanted was sat at the fish shop

and fishmongers awaiting a catch

their friends the black crows, were the ones in the know

and they told them they’d seen a fresh batch

So swooping round air by the fish shop

their aim was to grab this and grab that

but their finds were going to be short lived

by the sight of the fishmongers cat.

Up / Down

#Socs #Up #Down

I

The sky and stars are yours

rising to new heights

where you want to go

is all up to you

maybe one day

you’ll make it to the moon

II

Keeping your feet on

Terra Firma – was always

your best idea – sinking your feet

down into nice warm sand

The moon is nice

from a seat by the sea

Vapor

clouds of something

intoxicating travel through

northern skies

broken up by the wind but

caught in transit

by those innocently

flying by

Colours

Pacific Blue

#CYW #PacificBlue

When i see you around

i’m reminded of warm summer days

and the waters of the ocean

lapping the sandy shore

Attracting the sportsmen

playing about for fun

in their watersports gear

Motorboats and Jetskis

tearing a white wave

through your dark blue waters

Your Colours more deep

than your Mediterranean cousin

but seamen still hang around your deep shades

hoping to land that one in a million catch

Heads or tails

#Socs #toss

Stream of Consciousness Saturday Banner

a piece on a coin toss for #Socs by inky

50:50 – I think that’s what they call it

chances of you picking the right side of the coin

It seems so plausible – there’s only two choices

but like a smaller version of a roulette wheel

the fates are rising and falling

with each turn of the coin in the air

and decisions fall in the victors favour

whether the head sees the skies or ground under foot

Soaring through Salford Skies

#Salford #Birds #Blue #Skies

24th May 2020

Swiftly flying through the blue

a whole host of feathered friends

lift their wings and soar through the air

for while the humans stay indoors

only the odd cat need be looked out for as they

roll about and enjoy the summer air

dancing around the tree tops and saying hello through the windows

I.

The creator dropped his tool again

Turning the clouds a different shade of blue

The Angels sighed – and then

They cried – and their tears

Turned towards the earth below

II.

The raindrops raced to reach the ground

some landed on the ragged rocks

some landed on fragrant fruits

whilst others joined their pals

in a race down the river

III

Rapidly rolling raindrops

Rotating , turning and foaming in

Revolving and lifting formations

Ripping and carving curves through the

Riverbank

IV

Construction – halted

Crafty beavers, otters and water-rats alike

Carefully watch the waters move so

Creation of a new home or dam can

Commence

Daydream

Sunday 1st March 2020

Doing schoolwork when the sun is shining is

A bit of a chore – and kids have been doing it for

Years, staring out the window

Doodling sheep out of the clouds

Reactions from the teacher ?

Expected, but getting angry won’t grab their attention

As the warm rays cast onto the tables of the classroom

Making colourful rainbows across the table

Daybreak

#Writephoto #Daybreak

Daybreak : Image prompt from Sue Vincents Daily Echo




Darkness disappeared from view

As the moon and sun changed places

Yawning – Luna told Ra she’d see him at noon

But now, she was off to bed

Ra smiled, as he peeked above the horizon

Everyone seeing his glow raised a smile

Apart from those who had been running under his sisters light – now

Kipping in their beds in the nearby trees
