Bonfire Night

Cold air trails from my mouth

I can blow little circles

Dark is all around me

tiny candle lights appear in the distance

the bands pipe up with their music

the procession starts

Torch lights fill the sky

flames leaping upwards

people in fancy dress march through the street

and in the middle the GUY

shouting, whistling, cheering

as the people follow the crowd

they meet in a field

the bonfire is lit

it crackles quietly

whizz and bangs noises echo around

the sky is filled with a shower of light

bright blues, reds and greens

the crowd oohs and ahhs

and as the last firework finishes

the huge bonfire roars and crackles

the loud cheers and chants fade away

still is the night as we gaze into the flames

Mess and Mayhem

A Loud whistling noise shatters the silence

The waft of cooking bacon rises up the stairs

The dog paces backwards and forwards

There is a clattering downstairs

The microwave hums and pings

There is a clatter in the knife drawer

The cupboards squeak and bang

Its very early for all this noise

Its just another monday morning

My son is making Mess and Mayhem in the kitchen

It must be the hamster wheel of work

Calling us to start yet another busy week.
