Upside down and Backwards

You always wanted to be different

the other birds shook their heads at

Your topsy-turvy view of the world

but you always raised a smile

when the bottom of your seed tray appeared

Bewitching

No photo description available.

#Fowc #Bewitching

You couldn’t put your finger on it,

the way this junior librarian looked her way

and you jumped right to it

Maybe it was her smile

or the way she had her hair

that captured your eye

you would share a drink at lunchtime

while the boys just stared and looked

and the cat stared from her handbag – their goose was cooked

But meeting that night – impossible

as off in the air she’d fly

leaving you down on terra firma

as she flew through the stars in sky

Perfume

Perfume

A poem written by inkdrop for the daily post : Perfume

Salford (via Heraklion) , 10th May 2017

Perhaps it was her eyes that first attracted me

Everyone stopped – freeze frame as we met

Reaction to that wonderful smile – unabashed, but

From that day on, she seemed to be everywhere

Unusually, i couldnt see her around, was my

Memory playing tricks on me ?

Even the blossom’s sent a message of her

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

Hidden Intentions

Conceal

A piece of prose by the author, in response to the Prompt

 

What is that hiding behind your back ?

Something you do not want seen – hidden away

Who’s that for ?  What’ve you bought now?

Your face reveals nothing but a beaming smile

Clues abundant – around the house

Icing sugar and poster paint all over the kitchen

and hiding away in a colourful box

A special surprise – is under the stairs.
