The flower was the last, last picture but the Snoopy decoration was just a few minutes before so I couldn’t help showing both.

Simple Choice

Raven gives up a sonnet about moving forward perhaps!

Simple Choice
Form: Busta Sonetto 3

Hidden in the density of trees
The secret plans of escape
While humans lurch from scrape to scrape
As the world falls to its knees

And into chaos living must descend
And the time is coming when we will go
Or stay and meet the face of death
A simple choice, still some will say no
And stay until the bitter end

But me I’m gonna take that flight
To see a new world in another place
Born for peace before time stands still
A brighter future born of grace
For me the time has come, the time is right

Word Count: 100

Time: 9 minutes 30 seconds

The Old Man

At first it was jib
and then it was jab
a plain older fellow
in perfect red plaid

For all of his life
Since the day of his birth
He always felt anger
but never felt mirth

So on this one occasion
with the help of his group
He had lofty expectations
in a long mental loop

Like a bird in a jungle
so wild and set free
this man’s world came together
and that man is just me

Advanced Aircraft

Jim proudly presents…Wonder Woman’s plane!

A Unique Title For Me

Stephen Trevor was a United States Army Air Service officer who worked for British Intelligence in World War I.  Steve was a spy, on a mission to find out about the toxic mustard gas that was being developed by Doctor Poison.  Captain Steve stole a notebook containing the gas formula and then he took off in a plane to escape from the Germans.  His plane was shot down and Steve was saved from drowning by the Amazon princess Diana.  Diana had never seen a man before, so she asked Steve if he was one.  The plane was destroyed in the crash, but the Amazons rebuilt it and added some of their own magic to it, by making it invisible.  It was capable of vertical takeoffs and landings and at Wonder Woman’s disposal whenever she decided to use it.  It was made invisible so it couldn’t be tracked when she decided to leave the secret island, thereby giving away its…

Lost Flight

Di has an idea of how this plane got dragged to a hidden area!

This picture shows a large passenger airplane on the ground surrounded by over grown trees.

The foragers were excited with their find.
They attached twines and vines to the wings and nose, dragging the plane into the small clearing in the heart of the forest.
The craft was empty, totally devoid of life, the passengers and crew long gone.
The trees would provide a canopy of protection from anyone flying overhead.
No-one would think to look for it here.
And even if they did, by the time it was stripped of everything of value or use, there would be little left, another unexplained vanishing in what some call The Bermuda Triangle.

Changing Guards

A sonnet about a lawnmower on a train? Yup, well sort of!

Jezzie G

Inspired by and written for Simply 6 Minutes – thank you, Christine

My gut instincts are to go with a ditty from A. A. Milne but I can’t resist adding some jam to that slice of bread to make the trip to my youth complete

Changing Guards
Form: Busta Sonetto 2

They're changing the guard at Buck house
Jump on the tube or we’ll be late
“Mind the gap” the tinny voice shouts
I wonder if we will see Will and Kate?
Or are they away shooting grouse?

The train stops and the carriage is full
But still, more get on at the next stop
Crossing the city in a quick hop
Beneath sights it’s brimful

Our stop, squeezing past a mower, it’s a madhouse It’s sat there in everyone’s way And nobody seems to ask why So maybe it's just a case of today They're mowing the lawns at…

Simply Six Minutes: How’d They Do That?

John reminds us that public transportation isn’t always easy!

The Sound of One Hand Typing

Well, this certainly looks like a logistical nightmare…

I grew up in Chicago, and from the time I was in high school to the time I left for Atlanta, I used the Chicago Transit Authority’s Rapid Transit system, what they called the combination of elevated and subway trains. Often, I had to carry bulky items with me: luggage, computer equipment, packages to be shipped, packages I picked up, guitars, amplifiers, you name it. In all those cases, the items were reasonably small, and with enough effort and pre-planning, it was possible, albeit not easy, to get them through the station, on board the train, off the train, and out of the other station.

But a lawn mower? I can’t think of a good reason to try and move one of those by subway or elevated train. Why would you even put yourself in a position where you would even be…
