Dusting down the old poetry notebooks again…

An Old poem recovered from my dusty old box of writings, written back in October 2012, when i was reminiscing on my Ambassadorial experiences…and mum and dad were out of the house – so i had to go foraging….

 

Thursday evening and I’m on the hunt for some tea

after spending an hour in’th museum or three

so i pick up me notebook from BASIC thats laid

and search for a recipe to come to my aid

 

I hop to the market to buy me some fish

to try and do justice to a most yummy dish

I chop up an Onion and a jar of some sauce

and not forgetting the pasta of course

 

I boil up some water from kettle to pan

and add the twirly pasta, according to plan

and so it don’t stick, or so it don’t spoil

i add to the pan a drop of veg oil.

I fry off the onion, in the oil in the pan

and then add the fish thats been sealed in the can

 

and when pasta’s done i then add the sauce

covering every morsel of course.

And when pasta’s bubbling – it’s time for my tea

so i’ll plate up and eat up – turning off the TV.

Loop

Loop
like you go around in circles with the pen

Over time, you begin to repeat, going

over and over , changing position each time by degree till a

Pattern emerges on the paper

Honeycomb

A San-San poem – Origins rooted on the Greek Island of Crete

 

Honeybee.jpg

On holiday by a grecian water

I saw a flying insect having some tea

it flew for the pollen from flower to flower

occasionally passing a grecian sun or daughter

it was happy to pass through the flowers this bee

till it was time to head for home

where it spend a passing hour

away from the sun making honeycomb.

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

Orchid

Over most of the globe, this

Right royal plant with its majesty of blooms

Can be found spreading colour indoors or outdoors alike

Happy in a pot indoors or outdoors

In the expanse of the garden, its

Delicate flowers bring a smile on special days

Juicy

A lemon, sliced – at Food for thought, BASIC, Salford – B.F Kirkham 2017

 

The humble lemon,

like its siblings the orange and lime

each segment is full of cells just

bursting with juice

as the fruit knife cuts through the peel to the zesty core

each cell in its way bursts – releasing

fresh lemon zest into the air

while drops of lemon fall onto fresh marble

An Impressionist View

 

Manchester Art gallery, Manchester, england

 

I’ve taken some time with this

Mulling over the angles on where to

Photograph this classic building

Rolling around in my head – what media to use

Everyone has their favourites, but I like using vibrant paints

Some say, that all art is

Subjective – you’ll either like it – or you wont

Indeed, the same can be said for the photographic genre

On the whole though – its what you get out of it

New views of an old building – fresh from the artist.
