Silbury Hill Mystery Cloud Matches POP (PinkyOrangePurple) Descript/Fash-ion

Posted the day after I wrote about the 1964/65 UFO experiences there that coincided with my birth a mysterious POP (PinkyOrangePurple) cloud mystery in Warminster area made the media, and I saw it today on MSN.

The mysterious twisting cloud is also set against a classic POP panorama.

Was it military training, somebody having a laugh, a natural coincidence, or a totally POP UFO (Unidentified – although it should really be a UC – Unidentified Cloud?).

The truth is out there, and they also reference X-Files in the video!

T Dies a Thousand Deaths… for arT

The first T-20 Y-day eve is upon us. It was quite some weather day too, with the mist turning up on the last day of its two-months part of mistYmuse, and then evaporating as the sun strengthened in the afternoon, as it’s supposed to do in Mist Evaporation Week (MEW) before a pinky POP (PinkyOrangePurple) sunset (as written in yesterday’s blog post, although the sun doesn’t really rise and fall as it looks to us, it does rise and set to us; they are all human concepts, along with solstices and equinoxes etc).

I didn’t know how I was going to celebrate it, and then thought of writing a poem containing twenty Ts! It only reached seven! So I wrote another one, which had twenty-two!! So, thinking of marketing, that’s nine bonus Ts, coloured in tawny, making it quite some T20 party… sure is where I wanna be x 3!!!

T29

all was quiet
on Y-day eve morning
thick mist reminded one
of green(y-Y)grey dawning

not if ‘you’re’ travelling, my ‘self-ish’ thoughts unravelling

sun shone through
the sky turned blue
as if remembering Y-rise
a nice surprise

Yesterday it dawned on me
todayiTy fits into philosotea
part of my philosophy
time after coffilosophy
written in prose poetry

trouble with my  psyche is, there’s no words for this

I remember Cyndi Lauper
time after time
but there’s no music
for something so lethargic
sky pinks I remember magic

The song doesn’t have any message for or from me, and was just the music that came into my head as I wrote ‘time after’, mixed with Eminem, who I’ve cited before. Just watched the video, and amazed she does a T at the end. A fitting finale for the T20 party!!

Free Kindle Fantasy Fiction Follows mistYmuse MEW News

We are now officially in the MEW (Mist Evaporation Week) of mistYmuse, with January 21st a week away. It really gets exciting in the last four days, as we lose each letter day by day, going from MIST to IST, ST and finally just T on the 20th; kind of like T20 cricket!
For new mistYmusers, MIST stands for Most Ideal Sunrise Times, and covers the month before and after the Northern Hemisphere Winter Solstice around December 21st.

Ideal Sunrise Times

The sunrise appearing at about 8-9am in Blighty is ideal for the regular work start time.
Of course the sunrise is even later farther north, so more ideal for lazybones lie-in lovers… or just natural night owls.
This might provide some compensation for SAD (Seasonally Affected Disorder) sufferers.

Light at the End of the Tunnel

Sunrise times are still past 8am, as seen from the bottom of the met office weather forecast on its page from that link or below, but are getting earlier by about a minute a day (8.16 tomorrow to 8.11 on Sunday), while sunsets are getting later by one-two minutes a day (16.16 to 16.24 tomorrow to Sunday). So the three minutes a day mean there is about 90 minutes more light since the midwinter December 21st solstice.

It has been a pretty mild winter in Blighty so far, but there could still be cold weather in the MUSE (Midwinter Until Spring Equinox) half of mistYmuse. However, the additional light and knowing it’s the second half of the toughest four months; third of the year; for sun and heat lovers is inspiring.

To enter into the spirit of mistYmuse, I’ve made my last of the greenYgrey trilogy XaW Files: Beyond Humanity free on Kindle this week:

 

BBC Peeks into POPolution

Back on October 25th I wrote the BBC seemed to be ignoring the POPolution, with the POP part standing for: PinkyOrangePurple. Then, in mid November I was fortunate to be out under a POP twilight sky and posted some photos on this site’s sister site, travel25years; as they seemed more travelly than poetry.

BBC Focuses on PinkyPurple – Indigo

Today I saw the BBC had a focus on the twilight skies being particularly pink and purple this week. I don’t know if they have been particularly bright, or if it’s just them catching up with the POPolution! The other big terrestrial provider of local news, ITV, also had some great POP photos on their news yesterday, so maybe it was a special one.

Whichever reason, there’s some great photos anyway from the BBC‘s Weather Watchers, who’ve been very busy POPing POP pictures:

This dark bright pink the article was mainly about does seem more vivid than most:

Greenhill

This one is a classic POP picture, with all the PinkyOrangePurple colours, with the yellow sun rays orangeing in parts, the blue sky and grey cloud purpling and white clouds pinkying:

Inkberrow in Worcestershire

I’m writing another blog post updating the POPolution on travel25years now.

Mirror Poem Reflection 20 from Poetry Book

Reflections of the I
Reflections of the I (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

The fmpoetry.wordpress.com website has just updated the poetry reflections from Marc Latham’s 242 Mirror Poems and Reflections book with reflections 11-15, so we’d better keep a step or five ahead, and post reflection 20.

Mirror Poem Reflections

Hi, it’s William Wolfsworth, satirical comedy poetry correspondent at the greenYgrey inspired by legendary Romantic poet William Wordsworth.

Reflection 20 mirrored Summer’s Sunset Soliloquy, which mixed balancing mental health and sunbathing in the top half of the poem; with balancing positive and negative attitudes and behaviour towards people in the bottom half. noel_gallagher_high_flying_birds_album_cover_location_beverly_hills

Here’s Reflection 20 of 121 in 242 Mirror Poems and Reflections:

Strength and Death

In youth I felt strong enough to die.
In middle-age I feel my strength dying.
In old age I expect to feel death strengthen.

New Poem about a Sunset that lit up the East

Venus reflected in the Pacific Ocean
Image via Wikipedia
Marc Latham’s latest Folding Mirror poem was inspired by a recent sunset that lit up the evening from west to east, after there had also been a great sunrise.
The Day of Double Eastern Delight  
northern hemisphere amaranth again in morning
as our star lights up the sunrise horizon
constellations replaced by bright light
the sun rises into view
azure allure as orb wings westward
day’s gold sets in evening
Venus emerges with new darkening
but east does not turn sapphire to ebony
amaranth emerges once again reflecting sunset

Iridescent Colours, Sunset and Last Light Poem

Today we have a poem that I just did, from an idea that came to me while adding a video link to the last Hadrian’s Wall post. That video is relevant to this post, and contains the photos of iridescent light and sunset that influenced it.

Poem Explanation

The poem starts with the arrival of iridescent light, as it did that evening, when the photos were taken. They don’t always appear in the evening though, and I’ve also seen them in the morning.

The folding middle line is the sunset, which everybody notices.

The bottom half is the last light of day, which like the iridescent lights also has a subtle beauty to me, as it slowly leaves the sky to the north-west (in the UK). I often imagine where it is going, and how people further north can still see it in our northern hemisphere summer.

Poem Structure

The words per line mirror each other in each half with a
6-4-2-4 (9) 4-2-4-6 structure.

There’s no punctuation, so it mirrors!

The Poem

Summer Evening Sky Show

sweet shy scout for evening show
subtle colours enriching clouds
iridescent light
oh what a sight

Sunset fills the horizon with an upward rising splash

curtain call for day
light departure
slowly falling downward vanilla
chased by moon night time filler
