Meticulous

#fowc #meticulous

Attention to detail

Is important when you are doing things

Scribbling down the wrong location

Can land you in a bucket of hot water

If you’re heading for Liverpool

But end up in Llandudno

Choices

#Socs #Choices

Choices you make, can form you later on down the line

How you make them is down to you

Of course, there are many paths to travel, to where you want to go

It’s a decision you have to make…..

Cold or Hot, Coast – Countryside – or City

Even eating, can give you pause for thought

Should you have golden syrup or chocolate sauce on your pancakes ?

Tangent

#fowc #tangent

Taking road signs for granted

and following your navigation device – ignoring your own eyes is

notably, a recipe for disaster, as it

goes its own merry way and you

expect it to guide you to your

next destination – you think you’re headed to a sandy southern beach

the reality ? – you’re headed for rocky cliffs and pea shingle

Map

#map #fowc

many a sailor or perhaps

a buccaneer has used one of these in

pursuit of treasure

many you will find,

as a guide for potential explorers

putting their feet across peak district peat bogs

most are a guide for weary travellers

ambling across the uk road network

perhaps they could have taken the train ?

Lightness

#Octpowrimo #Lightness

Salford, 29th October 2019

As summer draws to a close

and green leaves turn to red

the leaves of the less evergreen

aided by wind rain and streams

float off in a dream, light as a feather

to their final resting spot

where they leave a mark of colour

on the paths around them

Delay

#fowc #Delay

What is the Rush? Train Stopped

As it sits on Tracks, Locked

I am sat in the station cafeteria

Taking in a tea and cake

In expectation that the

Next locomotive is

Going where I want to go

Mind the Gap

#Fowc #Gap

Mind the gap - platform sign

The warning signs tell you

Mind the gap

but to some

it seems an elaborate trap

for all those important

seem to step over line

the message isn’t for them

to them – all is fine

but you find yourself making

an emergency call

as one ignores the gap

and one of them falls

What’s Awesome?

#Fowc #Awesome

Salford 4th June 2019

If this reads a bit like a list – It’s not supposed to be!

Rainbow list of all my stuff that makes my life awesome!

Things I’ve done, Places I’ve seen

Being a cog as part of a much larger machine

Taking up writing as self – therapy

Helping out run some great events for free

Colourful Image of Imperial war museum in Old Trafford, Greater Manchester
Imperial war museum , Greater Manchester (with a splash of colour)

Greeting students at the museum door

Laying down tiles of a competition floor

Greek acropolis, Rhodes
Artwork of Greek Acropolis, Rhodes

Rising to heights of an ancient scene

Keeping a log of the places I’ve been

Track

#Fowc #Track

Sunday 14th April

Two lines of sturdy steel

Rolling down the road, from point a to point b

A thing for the engine to be able to travel

Connecting people and places across this isle

Keeping people moving
