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

Out in Space

Lego Man – Out in Space! – Image by Brian F Kirkham

He always wanted to travel

Lego man living on the shelf

his greatest descent – not a fall from grace

but sent into flight from a feather duster

till one day he flew

onto a book that made his dreams

into reality (of sorts) – as he landed and

walked into a patchwork of stars

Salford 1st September 2019

A painting and poem with a space theme created at night (light pollution permitting!)

Birth of a star : Artwork by Inky (Sept 2019)

Out there in deep space

Revolving particles of matter are

Being brought together

In the creation of

The latest star in the night sky

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

They said they’d be friends for ever

as they watched the magical sight

a merger of magical colour

bringing colour to the night

but then – a terrible happening

hit them both stone dead

as a flying piece of asteroid

hit them both as they planned to be wed

but as night fell after the morning

the two lovebirds returned to the spot

and continued to go there each night time

long after family and friends had forgot

Sunset over Alykanas

I watched
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

Fairy lights

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

Poetry Seasons Weather Winter

Winters night

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

Firework

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

Goodbye Sun, Hello Moon

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.
