Love is in the Air – Part 3

A Busker’s Love Song – Part 3

He whistles as stifling day of May

And a bitter song cling by his side;

He follows starry signs and secretly prays

for the Underdog pub to show him the way

To ease this pain.  Behind a wall of noise

five jesters take shots of his rusty stubble.

A trumpet’s cry tears the air above all those

who gather around legend turned to rubble.

And there is more next week…

Love is in the Air – Part 1

I wrote this poem when I was in my hometown Krakow last autumn.  I spent days  strolling around the Old Town and observing crowds, pigeons and eccentric street artists.  As a result,  I dedicate this short love story to Krakow and its buskers – here is Part 1 and Part 2 follows next week.

A Busker’s Love Song – Part 1

I

Pink-glazed clouds hoist frayed sails

over pilgrims, tourists, ghosts; they flock

around a busker as he folds his wings, frail

golden sheen and half the feathers lost

Postcards from Peanut – Emotional Baggage

Dear Readers

This is the last week of my holiday and last postcard from me. My poem summarises it all:

I’m doomed

to carry emotional baggage

from consuming all that cabbage.

It’s ok

I’ve got a secret that makes me happy:

mummy will pay

when she smells my nappy!

Dear Readers

Poland is cold, Krakow a bit better

Scotland is much much wetter

Cabbage is vile and bad mummy told me

to stop torturing that poor bird.

I did and instead I stepped

into a big brown….

(caramel-shiny, fossilised chocolate brownie!!!)

Bye

Postcards from Peanut – Edinburgh Airport

BlueBeretMum is on holiday in the lovely city of Krakow, Poland and Peanut has decided to keep the blog going and write a few postcards to keep you up to date on our latest adventures.

Since he must have inherited his mum’s love of badly rhymed verse….well, you know what to expect.  Here is your first postcard from Peanut.  Enjoy!

Hey, you rude man at the front of our queue

Get off my mum’s toe, she’s human too!

Beware of her temper or she will stab you

With her Jimmy Choo (off eBay,

A cheap copy. None of your business so boo hoo).
