with my feet still sat in wet sand
as the evening skies faded
like a fire in outer space
day turned slowly into night
and silver fish still circled
as a central point of
fire and ice
waited for the many moons
in the grecian sky to settle in their spots
like diamonds in the sky
4th July 2018
A piece of poetry from inky’s mass of notebooks, with a nod and a wink to the #promptuarium
Scattered like diamonds on black velvet
the sky sparkles like precious cargo
arrays of colours transmitted from light years away
really catching the eye in the way each ‘jewel’ twinkles
some would say – its taken time getting here – but to others – its instantaneous
you could call it crisp
its definitely dark
stars in the sky night twinkle and spark
out in the distant carpet called space
each cluster of stars don’t seem out of place
and standing like statues,
they watch as snow falls
creating their flurries that land soft but tall
Firing high, towards the stars
is that pocket rocket, we know as stella
rising from her ignition point, she leaves glittery
entrails as she
works her way through the darkened sky
onlookers, smile as she paints the blackness with
really bright stars
kreativ ? most definately
Another tale poached from my repository at Allpoetry.com by me – Hope you Like it
The sun set on the sand , that summers night,
heading to brighten another place bright.
It slowly went behind the sea
and shimmered on waters, in front of me
The sky changed colour from blue to red,
and slowly the sun dipped its head.
And as the sun dipped behind the bay
stars of afar began to display.
It took a while to make a mark
the moon appearing in an arc.
A carpet of stars appeared from up high
twinkling as I passed them by
and water in the bay, reflected the light
of the new moon that lit up the night.

During the night
as the earth turns
the sky turns black
appear as mere pin-pricks
in a velvet sky
whilst the other half is at work and play
the half cast in midnight
sleeps soundly away

Maybe its the colour of the night sky itself
Its only when the sun goes to bed – does it appear
Dozens , no thousands of stars peppering the dark blue
Night after Night, showing planets and constellations
Inky coloured skies, occasionally diffused by sodium lights below
Great gods from Aries to Orion , telling tales in the sky
Heavens Above! It’s a great sight to watch
The constellations moving in the night sky.
Another Piece from my archive at allpoetry.com – taking the characters of the Zodiac and placing them around the zoo…but where’s Pisces???
By Brian F Kirkham
The twins were bored,
they had nothing to do
so off with their mum
they went to the zoo.
They went to the Farm section
and fed the sheep and the goats
The twins liked Capricorn
who had a bell round his throat.
Over in another pen,
were the cows and the bull
Taurus, was his name
and was eating till he was full
Taurus was real large,
and had horns really big,
one twin noted
“He eats like a Pig!!!”
They visited Leo
in his grand lions hall
Lying on his rock
the primmest cat of all
And over by Leo,
the waters flowed by
where Crabs they scuttle
and silver fish fly
“Who’s That?” said the Twins to Mum
Pointing over to a man by the sea
“Why that’s Aquarius , Children,
he’s catching Leo’s Tea!!!”
this first line is now history..
That is a fact. For until a timelord lands in Salford tomorrow morning and plonks his TARDIS on the front lawn, I will be another day older when the sun rises in the morning.
The planets and moons will still turn around our sun and the flora and fauna that live on the blue earth will still carry on in their various systems of life on this diverse planet.
People will go about their daily lives, and the Wildlife will still live on in the forests and lakes around us.
The tides will go in and out, crabs and other shellfish will pop on the shore to say hello…seagulls woodpigeons and geese will continue their never ending battle with day trippers to grab a fallen piece of a fish and chip supper…whilst cats and dogs look on in envy as they patrol their street in the towns.
And all the time the earth will keep spinning. As the day moves along clouds and skies will shift. There may be rain, there may be sunshine – get them together – you might see a rainbow if you a lucky enough.
Then as the sun changes colour slightly and veers down the horizon – heading for the other half of the world, out pops the moon , the planets and the stars
Living by the busiest road in Europe – I still hear the rumble of wheels on Tarmac, but the night skies offer a newer scene with the characters that live up in the northern sky
On a clear night you can see all the constellations with the naked eye in my hometown. Orion, the plough and all the zodiac animals all pop up to say hello – and whilst i’m watching the stars – someone on the other hemisphere of earth is waking up to a brand new day.
And the earth keeps on turning…

Mr Spike Milligna! Hope you enjoy the read
In time – the sodium lamps fade,
like a fire out in the reaches of space
up in the night sky.
A central point of fire and ice
waits – as a thousand moons melt down
forming diamonds in the sky
Heavens children are busy –
playing in the midnight air
playing in constellation.
