Relief!

Relieved

The message responded to,

the seed of panic begins to grow

old faces from the past

you haven’t seen for years

 

Contact – thin on the ground

Telephone – no obvious sound

haven’t seen many of them around

feeling like a lost and found

 

As day grows near – you wander more

what you want to be there for ?

ghosts of past – appear no end

enough to drive you round the bend

 

You go to the place – and to your surprise

a friendly face – you’re recognised

nerves begin to ease a while

as old chums welcome you with a smile

footprints-in-sand.jpg

Four sets of feet walking in line on the beach

As you follow the line of footprints

Patterns begin to emerge

as footprints snake from east to west

smaller feet seemingly running rings around the big ones

but as we reach the end of the walk

these little feet disappear

washed away by northern water ? – No!

on their way to Fish and Chips

a little one has had his pips

his battery – is a little whacked

so Grandad has given him a piggyback.

Roots

A response to the prompt Roots

by Brian F Kirkham for the Inkwell

Salford 8th May 2017

Like any other little seed,

you need time to grow

grasp the air

spread some branches

And when the time is right

charged with energy and excitement

you’ll take your own flight

before landing on the soil of your choice

But remember your past

for the time will have passed

and contemplate the time

passed through movement and rhyme

for its time to develop

and grow new shoots

but dont forget family

the place of your roots

The forest call

is heard across the trees

mother and father wolf, are teaching their cubs

bears and panther may assist, but

every wolf cub in the pack knows

real learning comes from mum and dad

when the time is right to spread their paws

only the cubs themselves will know

life beyond the pack doors can be hazardous – but

friends can be found for life there

Could it be

A reason why I never can forget you

Real beauty – enveloped in a dress the colour of that flower

Never forgotten that spring night after

An attempt to grab your attention

Tomorrow, they say – is another day, but

I can’t get the vision of your smile from my head

One day – the fairytale might come true, but its

Noted you’re wearing that flower tonight
