Beach (Image : SC Vincent)

Sole observer watching by the shore, as

hopping and skipping towards the beach

in a race to get to him

many of Neptune’s and Ra’s children

move hop skip and jump creating colourful patterns

each one hoping they’ll get there first

racing bring smiles to all who see it

Midnight Blue

#CYW #MidnightBlue

Moonlight

Moonlight brings a spot of colour to nightime

it brings a touch of blue to a

dreamy scene…highlighting the

number of marshmallow clouds floating

in the sky around the moon

gravitating tween the moon and her reflection in the

half-light dispersed by the water of

the lake below

Start of a New Day

Greeting me beyond the curtains

long bright line of sky

of course, the sun isn’t full in the sky yet

when it is look forward to seeing the blue

The Moon, Sky, Stars and Sea

Salford 27th April 2020

#Napowrimo #writeclub #Dreams #Metaphor

The moon is a bright shiny Ten Pence piece

The sky is a furry dark blanket

The stars are little sequins reflecting on that blanket

The sea is a vast mirror, reflecting whats above

The Moon is a beacon for space travelling mice

The sky is the map they use to travel about

The stars are the destinations on that map

The sea the place they hide their spaceship

The moon lights up the sky at night

The sky keeps a kite up in flight

The stars play with the new thing in the sky

The sea watches on, and moves on by

Clear

Salford, 23rd January 2020

#fowc #clear

Cloudy skies today ? hardly

light from the sun falls down like raindrops

even the sky is a wonderful shade of blue

a warm and bright day

ready for a picnic ? we’re headed for the park

A weekend writing prompt from https://Sammiesscribbles.wordpress.com

Poem or Prose in 28 Words – Okay!!!!

Polar bears are partying

under nights light show

the snow is twinkling

with various different colours

moving about on ice

like the mirrorball chasing

the disco floor beams

Balefire

Salford, Thursday 24th October 2019

They’d spent days planning this

sourcing the location

and the straw to build

their balefire

The structure they said

would have to be sound

for the safety of little uns

watching around

so they stacked up the straw

and waited for dawn

before setting alight

the straw and the thorn

And whilst straw burned away

things glowed in the air

as rockets and whistlers

lit up the fair

Horizon II

#Fowc #Horizon #HorizonII

A shot of Duxford Airfield, Taken by Inky, for the planes taking off and the clouds in the horizon

Half way tween the earth and the sky

On which the sun exchanges places with the moon

Reality is although you can see it

In your eye line – you’ll find it impossible to reach

Zero degrees – and its all so far away

On the occasion you’ve reached your destination –

Next thing you see – is that place you want to be

Fountains

Manchester, 16th October 2019

I was in Manchester yesterday, on the hunt for a new pair of spectacles.

Walking through Piccadilly gardens, I noticed something to bring a smile to the grimmest of people….They’ve turned the water back on the fountains!!!!

Fountains, Piccadilly Gardens, Manchester (Image : (P) Brian F Kirkham)

Flying high into the northern skies

Orchestrated jets of water…

Unprepared pedestrians to the Gardens

Now get wet as they cross

Though, the youngsters seem to enjoy

Ambling through the watery pavements, tiptoing

inbetween the jets of water

navigating towards the skies of the city centre as

spectrums of coloured lights pass through them

smiling clouds

#Weather #Seasons #Summer #Acrostic

Summer sees me ignore the cirrus and and stratus

Taking in the rays peering through summers marshmallows

Reality is – something’s been smiling floating in the air

A smiling cloud, happy in the blue

Tears ? not today…and when Ra gets a little bit to fierce

A fluffy cloud and his chums are there to provide a bit of cover
