Whatshisname!!…

Brian the Snail 
Eyes meeting,
then a smile,
a few words 
‘It’s been a while’
stop and chat,  there in the street
on the surface two people greet.
Thought uppermost in one brain
”I know this face,  what’s his name?”
Mind is searching, taking ages,
you’d think it had
t’yellow pages
Wait a minute,  found at last
saying ‘bye, the die is cast.
‘Good we met,
Brian’ and a grin
but answering frown creates a spin.
It wasn’t really his name at all,
nicknamed,
for his slowness,
an absolute crawl.

Oooooops!!

Equilibrium…

Animated-balance-weigh-scales
Troubles,
that weigh on the mind
some large, yet some the niggling kind,
giving cause to frowns that mar any face,
‘til equilibrium reasserts
putting
worry
in
it’s
place.

Moonlight…

4716 
A moonlit night,
showing face serene,
such majestic light, 
a silvery moonbeam,
cloudy shadows
drifting high,
a portrait
created
in the
evening sky.

Metal Bin…

 Pedal Bin
The
metal
  bin sits,
’til I stand on it’s toe,
it opens it’s mouth
as if saying hello,
I throw in a tissue
or cotton wool pad,
I wonder,  does it feel,
does it ever get mad?
I now need to empty
it’s full belly you see,
so I don’t want it
planning
how
it could
possibly
eat me.

I have this… mad (?) idea, that inanimate objects can have feelings,  so I usually name them, sounds strange I know, and ‘tis ever so sad when one wears out and needs to be replaced… many tears are shed I can tell you… x 

Nothing Ventured…

question-mark-2question-mark-2question-mark-2 It’s
one of
those moments
just staring into space
pondering about nothing,
with a smile fixed in place.
As if
there’s nothing to lose
and yet something to gain
if we get something for nothing
is the meaning the same?
A thought comes from nowhere
but surely ‘tis true,
it surfaced from somewhere
not just out of the blue.
So,
from nowhere we come,
therefore to somewhere we go…
Yet if there’s nothing ventured
how will we know?
