Waiting

Inky’s response to the prompt

It’s not the right time

to be walking round in a big woolly jumper

so atop the hill the sheep await

the shepherd and his pals

to get a well needed haircut

#Weather #Seasons #Summer #Acrostic

Summer sees me ignore the cirrus and and stratus

Taking in the rays peering through summers marshmallows

Reality is – something’s been smiling floating in the air

A smiling cloud, happy in the blue

Tears ? not today…and when Ra gets a little bit to fierce

A fluffy cloud and his chums are there to provide a bit of cover

Summer Break

Sitting in the garden

Playing with a ball

As Mum or dad

Call out – from beyond the hall

Excitement awaits – we’re off to the museums!

Down goes your head – you don’t want to see ’em

Of course, its not like you’re grateful – you’ve been there before

Up with your classmates – till gone half past four

The holidays are for fun – out in the fresh air!

! You’ll be going somewhere sunny soon – but you don’t care! !

“Weather”

5th February 2019

Red skies at Night, Shepherds Delight…..

Red Sky at Night, Shepherds Delight - an example.

This old phrase is still around today.

It was the shepherds way of telling fine weather – a red sky at night normally foretold of fine weather next morning

Whilst a red sky in the morning, normally was followed by grey clouds in the skies above. It gave the shepherd time to get his flock onto lower ground and avoid an immediate drenching 🙂

We’re not out of winter yet in the UK, no matter what the met office say, and I’ve known it snow in March, despite it being technically Spring.

Ice cold

#milkshake #summer

Maybe it’s the summer weather

inviting my tastebuds to

lap up this strawberry infused delight, but i

keep on returning to it on

sun drenched days.  Perhaps it reminds me of

holidays, under a parasol …. it

always seems to

keep me cool

even in the most exceptional of temperatures

Summer days

white fluffy clouds make their way towards the sea

while cool winds come in off the western coast

butterflies take in nectar

from the yellowest of daffodils

while birds blend in with reds and blues

on the hunt for the grubs for lunch

Catching the Breeze

Best of arbory friends

Residents of the local park

Enjoy the gentle winds

Easing around their branches, a

Zephyr ? occasionally,

Enjoying catching a kite in Mid-air

Summers Hello

#Promptuarium #Earlymorning #Summer

An early morning acrostic by inky

 

Summers Mornings

Unusually found the Son up before

Mum and dad

Maybe its because he

Expected the smiling sun to

Reach beyond the curtains and say hello

Perfect time to relax in the Garden

In the shade of a cool umbrella, out of the sun

Cucumber sandwiches and iced lemonade

Nice accompaniament to the Barbecue chicken

Inside the wicker basket – under the foil

Chocolate cake for afters – the perfect sweet

Inclement is how the weathermen would have put it

the weather itself couldn’t make its mind up

the sun was out – the birds were tweeting – and everyone was content

that was of course till two sets of clouds collided into one another

and slowly, but surely, small waterdrops began to fall from the sky

pitter pattering into puddles – easily covered by peoples umbrellas

until the raindrops sped up – and turned into stairrods

filling up birdbaths and heading for waterways

the quickest way they could

ladies and gents diving for cover under the nearest shelter

till quick as it arrived – the stairrods departed

and cotton-wool clouds replaced the grey ones

while birds enjoyed the relax

in a pool provided by the cloud
