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!

Cotton candy clouds

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

Storms a Passing

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

Clouds in the water

Salford, 15th May 2017

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

Cotton candy

Salford 9th April 2017

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

Blue skies

#Coloryourworld #cyw #skyblue

Blue is the sky

the kite flies through

marshmallow pillows

 

and as it flies

rainbows brand new

travel through the air

 

passing over high white willows

colours of strawberry, orange, apple, banana and pear

 

Storm II

Storm

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.

Autumnal ?

Salford, 10th November 2016

The weather has taken a bit of a turn at Inkdrop House,

DSC00665.JPG

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?)

Cloudburst

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!
