In response to https://ceenphotography.com/cees-challenges/fun-foto-challenge/
Starting off with a Colourful one, taken at a session of the photography group Basic Clicks – Six Colourful Carrots on Blue Canvas!
here’s a couple of interesting Cutlery pieces – the first is of four forks against a wall, – i liked the shadows created in this pic.
Combination of ideas here, with a twist – Spirals of Cutlery , set on canvas.
Still life shot of various vegetables set out on a slate Cheeseboard, some onions (white and red), a tomato, a cut Cabbage and the return of one of those Carrots we saw earlier
Now fellow wordpressors might have seen this one before, but as its cees photochallenge, i thought i’d put it on here – not for the wonderful bridge (that’s the wrong letter folks!!!) but for those fluffy white marshmallow clouds , over looking the quayside at Salford, attached to the Manchester ship Canal.
Last but not least, here’s a close up of a cornflower – i like this one because of the colour!
as the sun says peek a boo
over multi coloured high rises
for an hour or two
Skies turn into confectioners delights
as cotton candy clouds turn from white to blue
with occasional shades of pink or yellow
From the Archive at Allpoetry.com, thought i’d share this one – a poem on the rain!
The field needs a watering
so nature gives a hand
layering the clouds so
they’re above the land
As sun heads off
to the other side of the world
the pockets of clouds are
about to be unfurled
dropping the contents
onto fields that are green
growing the veggies
the peas, potatoes and beans
And as water falls
it refreshes the soil
so the farmer has no problems
and his plough does not toil
But the best thing of the night
apart from the moon
is the red sky of evening
good weathers coming soon

You could almost mistake them for the real thing
confused Canada geese try to eat them as an appetiser before lunch
they seem to float gently on the waters edge
easy pickings for our feathered friends
Bubbles arise from deep below
but clever fish they do not show
as anglers sit along canal bank
the hiding oxygenator fish have to thank
but with one move of a beak
illusions are shattered –
disappearing in ripples
across the water

a sweet poem for the color your world challenge by inkdropk
#poetry #confectionery #cyw #coloryourworld #cottoncandy #candyfloss
whispy wires of candy
softly rising into a soft tornado
gathering in pace as it goes
sensational sugar collides
against the tornado catcher
fallen to be reused again
whisps gather pace
collecting speed and sugar
as a sweet cirrus begins to grow
floating sweet dreams
fly high in the air
caught by the ice cream man
man looking in has to use great skill
to gather the coloured pink cloud
to create smiles on waiting faces
#Coloryourworld #cyw #skyblue
Blue is the sky
the kite flies through
and as it flies
rainbows brand new
travel through the air
passing over high white willows
colours of strawberry, orange, apple, banana and pear
Something, they say, is brewing
The clouds of cirrus are circling, and getting bigger in the wind
Over the heads of everyone , whether on land or sea
Rain isn’t forecast for today – but tomorrow ? they’re saying torrential.
Maybe its best, if we just lay anchor – and Batten down the hatches.
Salford, 10th November 2016
The weather has taken a bit of a turn at Inkdrop House,
Believe it or Not, despite these dirty great grey clouds outside the window
THE SUN IS SHINING OUTSIDE!!!!
There is however – a serious drop in temperature, which has led some in the house to crank up the central heating.
I could retreat to the warmth of my duvet – but I’ve got another shift at Imperial War Museum North to go to – a second layer is definitely required.
11.34 am – I think somebody upstairs heard me typing
(Amazing what a bit of Blue sky thinking will do eh?)
The angels are crying again
up in the heavens
God’s in his workshop
planning out the seasons
and he’s dropped something heavy on his big toe
Judging by the colour of the clouds
and the sudden burst of rain
he’s not happy!
