Day/Night

#octpowrimo #Day #Night

Sunshine popped up from

Under the horizon – The beginning of a

New day

Snoozing flowers taking a stretch

Helping themselves to a bright spot

In a Moment, new shoots will

Negotiate their way through the soil

Elevating themselves to the clouds

Now when the sun has done his bit

Excitable little luna comes out to play

When its time for little un’s to go to bed

moonlight falling

over areas where the Neon and LEDs cannot

owls flying through the nightsky

navigation aided by the stars and moon

Cloudy skies

A piece from inky

in response to Chris Breebart Photography page – whats in the picture?

What’s up there in the sky ?

Get past the matted marshmallow sky

And you’ll find a brilliant azure sky

Away from the clear blue

Places for the sun to play hide and seek

I

Colour of the morning sun

set amongst the blue sky

and patchy white cloud

II

Breakfast calls

in the colour of your boiled egg

circled by toasted soldiers

III

In the garden

the lions of the lawn

greet you with hello

IV

Afternoon treat

tween two slices of bread

or eaten on its own

V

Accompanient

to post – dinner sweetener

perfect with a sponge

Sunglow

#CYW #Sunglow

Some say its the colour of the sun,

under the summer sunshade as it

nips down toward the horizon – heading to a

great mass of sand on the other side of the earth –

longing to see it again – the sunworshippers

often seen watching dipping down past the waterline

where it gives a few last rays of light before the moon arrives

Hiding

#fffc

To some, it seemed normal

they spent thousands to come

to this tropical paradise

took a fortnight away,

then sat on the sun loungers, out in the sands

feeling the burn….sipping sunny cocktails

to others, they pondered

why you would do all of that for one week flat

and spend the next seven sun-filled days

searching for shade and shadow

Serenity

#writephoto #twilight

Sat on a bench

taking in the last of the sun’s daily allocation of rays

in that moment of time tween day and night

looking out for luna popping out from behind the marshmallows

lighting up the sky as ra dips below the horizon

Beach (Image : SC Vincent)

Sole observer watching by the shore, as

hopping and skipping towards the beach

in a race to get to him

many of Neptune’s and Ra’s children

move hop skip and jump creating colourful patterns

each one hoping they’ll get there first

racing bring smiles to all who see it

Start of a New Day

Greeting me beyond the curtains

long bright line of sky

of course, the sun isn’t full in the sky yet

when it is look forward to seeing the blue

Salford 23rd June 2020

Lighting up the darkness

as the Sun dips below the horizon

night-time seems an awful lot friendlier with

them , as they brighten the dark gloom

enlightening any stroll in the

rolling dark blue shades of

night-time, until Luna pops up behind a cloud

Rolling on in

Salford, Monday 4th May

It’s early morning, as i rise

and the street is busy to my surprise

for waking up the chorus (Dawn)

a pussy cat, a little forlorn

He’d spent his time, with his pals last night

playing around under the street lights

but now Ra is up, it has to be said

this furry old cat wants in for his bed

His stomach is full, thanks to a friend on the street

corned beef from a can – a most tasty treat

but his thoughts turned to breakfast, as on street he did play

so off to the garden , he began to make way

And up is his owner, so he’s through the back door

and slowly he goes off to his bed on the floor

so while humans are out, with meetings they keep

our furry old pussycat, is in bed, sound asleep
