The equinox has now passed, so the northern hemisphere has now entered autumn/fall, with less sunlight than the southern hemisphere; a time of dying for photosynthesisers in the north; such as butterflies and leaves; who rely on the sun’s energy for life. So, the Dead Poet’s Society has awoken…
Sometimes when looking for UFOs
I see distant swifts or swallows
initially disappointed I wonder why
I’m looking for alien metals in sky
when our world’s full of natural hallows.
The two above are the original and a shorter version for a colourful background. Here’s four more written within the word count for a colourful background:
Stellar nurseries not adversaries, nor spinning planets anniversaries;
separate s-tell-a-r to tell a hug demander with a s-h-r-ug
Down gravity – left gravitas:
end of May cold rain UK only goes one way;
political/social pressures every day, pummelling us away
Sunlit ethereal streamer ghosts; of sky gods?
Marginally mask montage mountain clouds;
hanging like hair; appear almost aurora
Who woke humanity?
‘Why?’, God asks?, ‘did I do it? Just look at my garden!
Should’ve kept humans like peaceful grounded plants!’
Fair weather worshippers love our star like factor fashion,
not noticing without UV,
winter days loved only by perennials like me!
Above were just fitted into Facebook for the kind of deadline I like!
Sleep is the great equaller,
sandpiper, cheetah, tarantula;
legs balance, but totals differ:
1+1, 2+2, 4+4
Miss sea, see sky, sunlight colours same: blue, grey, cyan open ocean.
Clouded: creates everchanging coves, fjords, lakes, lochs; slow motion!
Don’t just reach for the sky: dive in;
for its depth is neverending!
Thought I heard my spirit call me, travelling over mind and body;
tympanic thunder, hobnail hail and lithe lightning connecting 33…
Only look up high,
admire those who fly,
thankful sun lights sky,
planeTV spins us lie,
never know why,
live and die,
2 get bye…
Deep mind diving, navigating by sun,
shapes obscuring star, shallows cloud surface,
time transparent space, regain knowledge place.
Lights brighten dark wilderness nights, fires heat cold sunless days…
but Earth’s still better off without our trashy ways!
rewarder, re-war/ord-er, reorder
We do things for reward, either pleasure or ambition.
If we’re getting either or both, we keep doing them.
Then, at a time perhaps unnoticed, it becomes natural.
crepuscular confetti grotto…
12 mins v 12 hrs media…
see brainstorm repeat as head hit pillow.
If I ever had white privilege,
I ignored it to inspire greener global village,
but 15 years of gYg-esture they want to pillage!
On Monday, sun view set to return
to Svalbard’s Arctic Circle Longyearbyen…
(time and date)
Did this photo in a MSN article inspire the first creation of cat art being called C-A-R-T? I just did a quick search and didn’t find it being used.
The greenYgrey abstraction also inspired me to notice cart features in the middle of abs-TRAC-t… backwards!
I posted it on Facebook last night.
Earlier I’d posted this little letterology poem:
still tree S-erenity
sunlight ref-INES suddenly
fleet flock ‘S-igns?’ flies between
And a great greenYgrey (visiting?) photo of the Northern Lights at Loch Lomond on Monday night, before a bright sunny day yesterday:
For lots more greenYgrey letterology wordplay and poetry:
To lOve abOve (two)
O central abOve O,
can U C? (a little self-parody!)…
promising peaceful clarity
beyond shape circularity...
