Crimson’s Creative Challenge #143

Whilst on a trip down to the Weald

I went for a walk through the fields

The air smelt fresh, I soon saw why

On the hill was a huge pig sty

I have no qualms about pig-shit

Just glad I didn’t walk through it

Then a story came to my mind

The tale of the Gadarene swine

And the farmers in this region

Wouldn’t like it if I were Legion

Announced by a screech

next the scratch at the window

let bloodlust begin

Ronovan writes #Decima prompt #68 #Victory in defeat.

We turn toward the beach once more

and staring through the smoke-filled air

see hordes of figures standing there

too tired even to implore

us to remove them from this shore

when at the start of this new day

our boats appeared across the bay

faced by such a desolate scene

from the hell through which they’ve been

the saviours for whom each did pray.

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #142 “Prevailing wind.”

Whenever into the country we go

the direction to take I always know

the answer is always plain to see

I always look for an old bent tree

but how does that help you may well ask

well the South west wind blows up a bent tree’s trunk, (sorry but nothing rhymed)

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #139 #Shy boy “A love sonnet” ish

The path ahead was straight and true

on which I and my true love trod

I said my heart is just for you

she called me a romantic sod

but I could see she was impressed

no-one had told her that before

the trouble was she wasn’t dressed

for lying on the forest floor

so I held her close by a tree

and slid both my arms around her

she was excited I could see

nervous I started to flounder

before I’d only ever thought of sex

and didn’t know what I should do next

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #137

Amidst the sun-bleached stones is placed,

a bench where some may contemplate,

amidst the songs of woodland birds

to gaze upon the deep-carved words

some are sad and some light-hearted,

some are recent, some long departed

familiar names bring forth their faces

while dim memories remain as traces

of perhaps some gathering or event

or with the family, fun evenings spent

now those below who may be gone

but in these memories live on.

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #138 #Who are the Secret watchers

Hidden by the flower stalks

I watch the people as they walk

folks would think it rather weird

if they knew I was sitting here

but there are plenty more like me

if people had the eyes to see

meanwhile we will carry on

keeping watch over everyone.

Sammiscribbles weekend writing prompt #215

Our ancient ancestors tried to show us how they think

simply by using the tools they had as their pen and ink.

Sammiscribbles weekend writing prompt #214 Anonymous

Beneath this stone in sacred ground

is buried a man of great renown

but were the words not on the stone

his deeds would be to us unknown

nor details of his valiant life

and how spent with loving wife

all seven sons and daughters three

they were a well renowned family

their names engraved at different stages

as their lives ended across the ages

Me and my mate Horace

were strolling through the forest

when he saw these two up ahead

he turned to me with a smile and said

that horses ass reminds me of my wife Doris
