#In light of the lack of a fresh writing prompt – i’ve poached this one from the wordpress e-book – 365 Writing prompts….enjoy….inky.#
Salford 16th June 2018
Inclement is how the weathermen would have put it
the weather itself couldn’t make its mind up
the sun was out – the birds were tweeting – and everyone was content
that was of course till two sets of clouds collided into one another
and slowly, but surely, small waterdrops began to fall from the sky
pitter pattering into puddles – easily covered by peoples umbrellas
until the raindrops sped up – and turned into stairrods
filling up birdbaths and heading for waterways
the quickest way they could
ladies and gents diving for cover under the nearest shelter
till quick as it arrived – the stairrods departed
and cotton-wool clouds replaced the grey ones
while birds enjoyed the relax
in a pool provided by the cloud
Salford , 2nd March 2018
A whole host of clouds float in
over your head
very interesting to look at, but
expect some water to fall if any turn grey
When i saw this prompt from cees black and white challenge, I
expect you knew the response you see – It’s blooming
Autumn, they cried!
The weather’s bound to be bad, said some we’re gearing up for winter
Hot climates moved back, said others, towards the equator…
Everyone’s thinking of heading where its currently Summer,
Relax – I said, enjoy the White Christmas!
Marshmallows floating over Greater Manchester
Take away the blue in the sky
and those clouds seem to develop
like a photograph in a laboratory
the clouds grow and move become more defined
and you find yourself looking for sleeping cherubs

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)
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
Another cloud poem
