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

Reflecting

A response to the reflecting prompt, taken at Salford Quays recently

Sunset Reflecting on Ontario Basin, Salford Quays, Lancashire UK

Taken by me using my Sony DSC-H300 camera – using sunset mode and continuous frame.

Had a while to wait for the sun to duck below the clouds, but i’m happy with the end result and the colours in the water and sky.

Anyone wondering about the buoys in the water – this is where the watersports centre do their windsurfing, canoeing and line surfing.

Harmony

It starts with the wind gently rushing through the green leaves

feathered maestros awaken in nests and trees

no electronic devices needed here

as chirping chums share news around the bird bath

and as they fly into the morning blue

the song begins to take shape

a tale of a glorious blue sky moment

twittered by the chorus that’s come together

and are residing on the roof to perform

Deep Space (Darkness)

#coloryourworld #cyw #black #space

During the night

as the earth turns

the sky turns black

distant stars

appear as mere pin-pricks

in a velvet sky

 

whilst the other half is at work and play

the half cast in midnight

sleeps soundly away

 

 

Violet

#coloryourworld #cyw #violet

Very striking colour – is the violet

it’s not as if she shy’s away among the other colours

on the contrary, if she wasn’t where she was, sitting by the rainbow, the others would

let loose – and you wouldn’t see them up in the sky

expect to see her vibrancy in the garden too, but

take care -for handling her delicate flowers, will leave a trace – that will follow you.

 

Blue

#coloryourworld #cyw #blue

Basically, a primary colour – in

Light or in paint – you’re

Used to create a whole host of

Exceptional colours

 

Best seen at the start of a day

Lakes and skies bringing out your many shades

Usually seen in waters on the

Edge of a beach

 

Bringing out the best in

Luscious fruits like blueberries and Blackberries

Usually absent from other foods people

Eat for Dinner

Midnight Blue

Maybe its the colour of the night sky itself

Its only when the sun goes to bed – does it appear

Dozens , no thousands of stars peppering the dark blue

Night after Night, showing planets and constellations

Inky coloured skies, occasionally diffused by sodium lights below

Great gods from Aries to Orion , telling tales in the sky

Heavens Above! It’s a great sight to watch

The constellations moving in the night sky.

Cerulean

could it be chance or fate

every time I see this jewel of a colour

reminisences of holidays come flooding back

usually seen in the skies that met the sea

local buildings , in white were accented with it

each house with a roof door or wall in it

a perfect partner for the olive gardens set

next to the white sandy shoreline
