Bear Sleeping c/o Unsplash

With all that warm fur he has

you would think a brown bear enjoys the cold

instead when the air seems that little bit frosty

off he goes for an extra tea

before resting his head

on his hand made bed

Somewhere in a hidden forest

among the scots pines and fir trees

noted gentleman is taking five having

taken and delivered kiddies toys and presents

all around the world

(he’ll be back to work soon – but for now he’s taking a nap!)

A Place where writing implements go to sleep

Hewn from the finest tree trunks

a place where the little apes

transfer their thoughts using pencil to paper

some use pen, some use paper

some use crayon, and some use colour

words and pictures cascade on the page

and then when finished, they return their tools

to a nice spot on the corner of the tree trunk

some might need a hair cut, for the next time they’re used

but for now, they sleep, dreaming of a rainbow of colours

#thought #definition

Alternate definition : where writing implements sleep

crafted from the finest tree

a spot where writing implements

relax before pursuing their art

engaging colour shape and form on paper or canvas

fulfilling the artists ideas and concepts

until the task is done, only then will they

lie down and take a nap

New Year, New Day

The first post of 2021.

New year in colour – Big Ben at Midnight, splash of colour by inky

I

The hour past

The bells chimed

One year confined to the history books

One year to look forward to

II

Late Nights

Laced with wine, food, drinking and song

Leads to a long nap under the duvet

Lying in on the downward strait to twelth night

III

Promises made – Resolutions

in changing and interesting times

enjoying a feast at the first day of the year, while

some prepare, to head out for bargains

Dreams

#freedomofexpression #Dream

Dreams – they form your life’s ambition

Resting as you do on your quilts position

Even as the darkness falls

A wonderous formation of thought does call

Maybe your dreams may all come true

Some require effort – that’s down to you

Sounds

#sounds #acrostic

Sunday evening, is a whole lot quieter than Sunday morning

Outside, the rumble of traffic is down to a minimum

Unless it’s a plane or a train you want to catch

Navigating those roads should be a breeze

Double glazing muffles any noises, and the wildlife are

Sleeping in their beds soundly, keeping warm

Health Poetry

Early morning blues

Woken up by waterworks

On the mark of quarter to five

Kept awake by the familiar sound of

Excited cats finding food on the

Night prowl

Unless my head hits the

Pillow soon, i won’t be good to anyone

As pins and needles bite my feet

Golden slumbers seem far away

Aching bones rest on a thousand pocket springs

In a vain attempt I’ll sleep through the rest of

Night time

Ascend

Adventure can be

seen anywhere in the house by little

children, as they

elevate themselves one foot at a time to

nightime stories and

delightful dreams under the watch of their teddy bears

Cacophony

Cacophony

It begins quietly enough

the sound of birds waking from their nests

and perching themselves on the sculpted columns of buildings

the sound sweetly moves past the windows

joined by a wail of a cat and a dog

arguing over the stray beefburger

dropped the night before

the rumble of tyres – joined by their horns

as products make way from a to b

kids on the march from home to school

noise from records in an aim to look cool

the birds fly away – soon to return

and you have to get up – as your ears start to burn
