“Weather”

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.

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

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

Picnic days

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

Singing in the rain

#In light of the lack of a fresh writing prompt – i’ve poached this one from the wordpress e-book – 365 Writing prompts….enjoy….inky.#

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

When i saw this prompt from cees black and white challenge, I

expect you knew the response you see – It’s blooming

Autumn, they cried!

The weather’s bound to be bad,  said some we’re gearing up for winter

Hot climates moved back, said others, towards the equator…

Everyone’s thinking of heading where its currently Summer,

Relax – I said, enjoy the White Christmas!
