Winters night

you could call it crisp

its definitely dark

stars in the sky night twinkle and spark

out in the distant carpet called space

each cluster of stars don’t seem out of place

and standing like statues,

they watch as snow falls

creating their flurries that land soft but tall




As the competition began to place

The audience and judges shivered in their space

As a young guard, who’d never done the job before

Created a draft inside on the competition floor

Now this might not be bad for contestants so bold,

But judges observing were getting a cold

Said head judge to colleagues, as he spoke to all

I think next year, it’s summer not fall

And sending out messages to stewards away from floor

I know it’s an open…but someone please…shut that door 🚪

Clouds – a reflection from inky

Now living during autumn 🍂 in the north of England, you tend to see a few of these.

When the wind makes its way east or west, they tend to follow its path

They’ve got funny names as well …. cumulus is the cloud ☁️ shape they use on the tv weather forecasts

When they expect a change it goes from a white cloud to a rain 🌧 cloud, if there’s a chance of sun ☀️, they put a cloud with the sun behind it…⛅️

The long thin ones are stratus, whilst the fast movers are nimbus club these together and you get nimbostratus and the really big ones cumulonimbus (don’t like being out when they turn grey)


Falling leaves 🍁


Two leaves, lost by the trees in Autumn, and used in an arty sense! Photo: BFK

Autumn is a little bit odd for a deciduous tree

you see whilst the evergreens are keeping their leaves

the deciduous trees are getting ready to lose theirs

and slowly their leaves turn from green

to yellow, to red and then brown

and as they do, they drift in the air

before landing on the ground



<a href=””>Foggy</a&gt;

For years it’s been a clarion call,

Over the hills and valleys it falls

Greeting us all, with the message

Get yourselves ready, winters on its way!

you may ignore the creeping fog…but the leaves have already fallen


Winters creep

Summers days seem to be shortening,

As the light gets darker in the sky

Up in the clouds, winter is playing

Seeding them with creations

All designed by himself, and delivered by the

Great winds, of east and west

Expect a drop in the mercury and

Something tasty to keep you warm


Out in the blue

San Rafael, Faro,, algarve , Portugal 🇵🇹


Sat at the side of the road

a grand palm tree 🌴 rises high

to say “Buenvenidos!”

to birds floating in gentle breezes

in warm blue summer skies
