Once a knight

Ragtag Daily Prompt Thursday: Brandish

Here is a song that I have loved since I first heard it. An Australian group of schoolkids, King Fox, won a Battle of the Bands doing a version of this song.

OK….now onto my
Knight of the Rooves
Always there,
brandishing his fearful very spikey
whatsit
guarding the roof tops
of Paris.
Sir Tuyau de Cheminée
has many other guards
ready to go
at the first sign
of trouble.

All lined up,
their steely gaze
seems to just drift
over your head.
You decide to go
remembering what
has been said
turn to loook
one more time
One day things
will get hot
around here

Happy Valentines Day

This is for those who would like a few roses for Valentines Day. They come with love from me

Taste of You

The taste of your lips,
the smell of your body.
your touch
on my skin –
the warmth of your body
next to mine,
bodies melding together
feeling your heart beat.
eyes closed
but seeing everything.
words not said
but saying everything.
kiss me again –
a kiss that I can spin
into a dream,
a dream I can spin
into reality
with the taste of your lips
and smell of you upon me.

and a little Rose Robin to help melt your heart

Grandfather and Ben

Weekly Prompts Wednesday Challenge: Pet Pampering

There was often talk
of Grandfather and Ben.
Never a better pet,
was said far and wide.
Ben could do
what no other could
but rarely
left Grandfathers side
pampered.
After a time
both could not do
what needed doing
on the farm.
Everyone loved to visit
Grandfather and Ben
have a cuppa
a bit of a yarn
always in the kitchen
in Summer
and in the lounge
which was the
comfy chair drawn close
to the stove
in Winter.
both pampered
It was towards
Summer, I remember
when a few
of the family
knocked the door
of Grandfather and Ben.
Grandfather they called
we have to talk
How long have you
had old Ben?
Dunno, the old man
said
must be maybe
thirty or more
the family looked to
each other before
one spoke
Grandfather
Grandfather
you know
Ben has
been gone over
twenty years now
it’s time
to go
Ben’s not looking the best
and that
Taxidermist
did such a
bad job.

Not now

FOWC with Fandango: Avoid

Look
up there!
Did you see
that?

What?
I said
That he said.
OK I said
I see a FOWC
but was going
to avoid this one.

But why he said?
I don’t have anything
not even a photo.
You must
have a photo
that’s what you do!

But I write
I said.
So maybe some words
and avoid a photo.
But have you words
No one will read them
Quick
get a photo.

We can post it later
and avoid
the rush
Have you found a photo?

Did you want
to scare people?
No, of course
not
It is a way
to say
AVOID
