King of the puddytats…..

Surveying his kingdom

purched preening on his prime position

rivals daren’t come close

as the self professed “king of the close”

yells out to all comers – “keep off – that’s MINE!”

Acrostic Food Fruit Poetry

Zest

Zingy is how you might call it

each pore of the citrus fruits skin

holds a little bit inside

and as your figures begin to split

the fruit’s smell contained therein

escaping into the room

where it does reside

enhancing the flavour into which you’ve just bit

The colour of scent : Wallpapers by IS @ DeviantArt.com

Splashed it all over ?
He knelt down to propose –
What’s that aroma ? Oh gawd! My Nose!

Old Shoes

Salford 23rd September 2018

I remember the day i first bought them,

fresh out of the box and smelling like they’d just come out of the factory

They fitted my feet nicely, but i’d been told i needed to break them in

so over the next few days – i wore them in the house

as i got the feel of them i took them down the Trafford Road

getting them wet in a Greater Manchester rain storm

being well waxed – it didnt effect them for a while

time however is a fickle thing – and my shoes have lost their hardened exterior

My slippers look on in envy, as my feet feel comfy in the broken down softness

wont be long before a trip to the shoe shop – and a rendezvous with the recycle bin

Fizz bomb

#coloryourworld #atomictangerine

the atomic tangerine 🍊

dropped into the pool of

clear hot water 💦

Reactions to the spheres arrival

as it nose dived into the blue

were instantaneous….

Little children 👶 smiled away

not it in the way

it fizzed away

Like orangeade exploding

into the blue

but  mostly how its scent

originally meant

for the upstairs bathroom

could be found In the kitchen too

Out of Sight, and Out of Mind

A poem by Brian F Kirkham in response to the Daily Prompt

Pungent

That dirty little secret,

hiding in plain view

has built up over time now

It isn’t something new.

 

No one is going to find it

(Deodorant Masks it you know)

But those tales that you’ve been telling

the secrets going to blow!

 

Its built up over time now

in the corner with some ease

as nobody knows where you hid it

you’ve been doing as you pleased

 

The smell of old socks is still round now

and the t-shirt ? well, it needs a break!

we all know that its your favorite

but its started to smell overbaked!

 

Ignore the classroom gossip

you’ve got to keep them keen

so isn’t it time to put that laundry

into the washing machine?
