Silent Disco

DJ poised on stage to perform

The crowd wait in anticipation

He punches the air

The crowd roar

Then silence does prevail

The crowd dance

Punch their hand in the air

They dance the night away

Except for the odd shout

The music has disappeared

Head phoned adorns the crowd

Silence often is heard

No music, no singing

The crowd dances madly

They sing out of tune

They clap and whistle with delight

Once again the DJ not heard

Just the silent Disco is playing

Sunny side up

 

sunnyside

 

My heart sings as the sun shines

Birds join me as they hear my joy

My smile stretches from ear to ear

The brightness motivates me

My eyes dance in the sunlight

Happiness is all around me

So quietly I focus on all that is here

Each wonder is magnificent

Beautiful and shining

Each day my eggs

Are the sunny side up.

 

Ashdown forest

Ancient tranquil heathland
Bathed in dappled light
Dark farrows start to change
As winter turns to spring
Purple heather grows in clumps
Yellow gauze dazzling in sunlight
Covering patches over the forest
In the heart of the high Weald
Lies a forest of natural beauty
Small rabbits dart around bracken
Deers graze camouflaged by trees
This home of Winnie the Pooh
Enchanted forest to explore
With pathways stretching
Across hills and downs
This Ashdown forest
Such a privilege to enjoy

Snow White’s Robin

Day 21 of napowrimo

 

 

I saw her coming closer

She didn’t see me hide

I watched her knock on the door

I flew onto the roof.

No one answered, she stepped inside

I flew to the window sill.

She looked around the little house

I kept very still

She counted all the chairs

I was brave and hopped inside

She counted all the cups and plates

i watched her as she moved

she climbed the stairs and counted beds

i flew to the edge of the room

She lay down on the little bed

I hopped onto the post

She closed her eyes and dozed right off

I closed my eyes as well.

Suddenly I heard loud shouts

My feathers shook

‘Who is this girl’ a little man said

I wanted just to hide

She opened her eyes and said ‘hello’

The little men stood back

‘Hello little robin were you looking after me?’

She asked as she stroked my head

I nodded slowly and looked around

The seven men were not pleased

‘I’m Snow White, can i stay a while?’

She asked the one with the ears

They nodded slowly, no one spoke

She got right out of bed.

And with that they followed her down the stairs

And i flew overhead

She made them dinner

We all sat down

And that’s how the story started

As for the bad bits

We will skip them now

I rather like the way it is

Happiness and lots of smiles

Snow white, seven dwarves and

Me the little red robin

Who watched the story unfold.

Scrambled

How to make scrambled eggs

This is what i do

Take a non stick pan

And place it on the hob

Switch it on gently

Give it time to warm.

Take and egg and crack it

In a mug of course

Ground some pepper coarsely

Then beat it very hard

Beat it quickly make some bubbles

Beat it once again.

Slowly pour the egg

Into the warming pan.

Stir it slowly very gently

Move it round and round

Watch it turn from liquid

Into pale yellow forms

Keep it moving in the pan

Please don’t let it stick

Within a couple of minutes

The liquids changed its form

Its lovely scrambled egg

Just waiting to be eaten

Take it off the heat

Tip the egg into a bowl

Ready to eat with relish

Or just plain scrambled egg

Enjoy, indulge and remember

This is how i like my eggs.
