Nostrils snorting steam

red the colour of the beast

fresh blood stains the sand

Sammiscribbles weekend writing prompt #261 #Wayward offspring

Charles had an appointment with his mother

for protocol sake there could be no other

he said to her Mama I think even you can see

that this year an outcry there would be

if you let these two young people dictate

their appearance with you on affairs of state

so I think for the sake of our family

forget them appearing on the balcony

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #185 Bloomin’ lovely

She examined her two rows of iris

radiant in their blue and white

then thought perhaps that she could try this

and it gave her much delight,

for the blood red bloom though not so tall

turned out the most colourful of them all

Bare branches bend low

bowed by the weight of ripe fruit

bountiful Autumn

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #184 #What lies beneath

Down below these planks of wood

cowers a girl who prays she could

break the bonds that hold her tight,

between each plank a chink of light

she above her head can clearly see

that holds the promise to be free,

though thoughts of death may still be near,

thus gently acting to salve her fear

although no matter how bad this may seem

when she awakes will find ‘‘twas just a dream.”

Focus on the king

but the queen holds the power

part of life’s great game

Sammiscribbles weekend writing prompt #259 #The few

They consider it just another flight

while sirens wail, spotlights pierce the sky,

the aircrew know they will do or die.

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #183 #Childhood memories

We went down to the woods today and got a big surprise

looking up into the trees we could hardly believe our eyes

for on every branch on every tree

was hanging a piece of crockery

so it seemed we had to assume

that as this is a familiar tune

the teddy bears would be having a picnic.

Nature can survive

when given a little space

shared Earth and future
