Tonights poem is based on the standard daily prompt of Invisible’.
Today: Invisible fly-on-the-wall
Times may be hard, the world’s a mess
Compared to some, we’re totally blessed
Political leaders wield their powers
A rocket base or a water tower
In strange tongues, holding different views
Strong words, the others they accuse
Hostility ceases, turn things around
A solution to find some common ground
We need talks of peace, not the other’s downfall
Oh to be an invisible fly-on-the wall
Tonights poem is based on the standard daily prompt of ‘Identical’.
Today: Identical twins
Mum to be, ready to give birth
Blessed with child, a swollen girth
A babies cry, not one but two
All complete, the family crew
What’s this, don’t stop, don’t stare
Beautiful babies, a matching pair
Who is who, hard to tell, a family kin
The fun they have as identical twins
Tonights poem is based on the standard daily prompt of ‘Blush’.
Uncontrollable emotion or just one word
A compliment paid, unintended redness stirred
A smile or commment, a simple kind action
Automatic reflex, natural reaction
So embarrassing, hide your face in a cushion
It only takes one thing to start you blushing
Tonights poem is based on some of todays activities.
Today: In time for a brew
A pure white carpet, animal tracks so small
A crisp Sunday morning, snow continues to fall
Very strange, boot marks size eight
Who’s made those, let’s sit and wait
Surprise, surprise, in walks my Sue
Foodbank collecting, in time for a brew
Another bake for work tomorrow. These are Blueberry Muffins (honestly!). Very tasty too.
Tonights poem is based on the weather we had today. Classed as a ‘mini beast from the East’ the weather was dreadful.
Today: Looking out at the storm
A weather warning but not near me
The snow is coming, let’s wait and see
Opening the curtains, no snow around
Not very long, white flakes fluttering down
A blizzard now, so my big coat and flat cap
I may look a berk, but that’s that !
Rather be at home all cosy and warm
Coffee in hand looking out at the storm
Tonights poem is based on the standard daily prompt of ‘Wrinkle’.
Today: I can’t find any
Forty years since I saw your face
Where did that go at such a fast pace
We’ve had ups and downs, good and bad times
I’m going grey, looking haggard with lines
Almost sixty, looking over the hill
You’ve not changed, as if you’ve taken a pill
Not one to be found, is it some magic sprinkles
Perfect skin, well I can’t find any wrinkles
Tonights poem is based on today at work.
Today : Keep your head down
Announcements made, followed by actions
No surprise, some peoples reactions
Times may be hard but there’s still that divvy
Fine for some, others soon to be livid
Measures to come will turn things around
Who knows who’s to be safe and sound
This time it’s serious, it’s no joke
Keep your head down and don’t provoke
Tonights poem is based on the standard daily prompt of ‘Noise’.
Today: White noise
Interference, chatter, such a racket
Cacophony, resounds, high pitch static
Audible pollution, nuisance hum
Disturbance of resounding bass drum
Thundering commotion, quiet destroys
Heckling poltergeists through the white noise
Tonights poem is based on the standard daily prompt of ‘Grasp’.
Today: Grasp the nettle
Opportunities, few and far between
If it’s a sweep, better make it clean
Push comes to shove, how far will they go
Maybe a dirty trick, that’s how low
Let’s see what they’re made of, test my metal
Grab it with both hands and grasp the nettle
