Sky over Aspull


Sky over Aspull
Reminds me of one of those photos from The Hubble Space Telescope.

Crikey - I thought that was a flying duvet on fire! Could it have come from the Wigan Lane area I wonder….

The Angel sailed above us ,
formed within the clouds,
gazing pon her brethren ,
the meek , the poor , the bowed ,
her gown is rapped of Roman,
her hair has kept a bow,
and her fragrance as she passes ,
she sends to us below...
Pilgrims have their wishes,
prayers they hope to keep,
for within the cloud spell gathers,
we wake our conscious sleep...
To dimensions or thereafter ,
the trillion worlds out there,
you will always find an angel ,
within the clouds somewhere?

Some times you look at the late evening sky and all of the clouds are multi coloured

What poetry 'e' !

Dennis, You expect God's hand to appear any second !

Great photo Dennis.Love the poem e, and I agree with you about finding angel's in the clouds. There is something about the clouds I find healing.

Amazing sky ! Lovely pic Dennis.

The sky is an amazing place, you just need raise your heads.
You can count the clouds, you can identify different types of clouds, you can make shapes, you see a lot of clouds that look like dogs especially Scottish Terriers.

That's a great shot of a beautiful sky Dennis. How fortunate are we to get a free light show every day.

Nicely captured Dennis, it isn't a flying duvet on fire Veronica, it's a grilled Rainbow Trout fillet with a dash of tabasco.

It’s more likely to be the fallout from my barbecue actually Cyril.

You see, I like my food done Hillbilly style , and I find those old wagon tyres give a more interesting flavour to the hominey grits , but they don’t half send up an Nagasaki style plume of smog it must be said .

I got the idea from Jed Campett’s book , ……..
…………....“ Granmaw’s Appalachian Cookbook “

He’s one L of a chef that Jed….and no danger.

I just hope that Andy Burnham wasn’t looking out of his window at the time that’s all.

I’m doing venison à la Robert de Niro this weekend…..
….so keep your windows closed.

As long as the shelter hasn’t melted along with the chargrilled Rainbow Trout … !

Comment by: Cyril on 15th July 2022 at 21:39

Oh that seems good, will the venison be marinated overnight in Grappa or shall it be Meth's with a few crushed grapes to take the edge off. Bon Appetit.

I at one time had of a pamphlet book of Pioneer Recipes that I'd got from America on ebay, and it was like those Granny Clampett recipes or vittles' to be cooked in a Dutch oven or on a griddle over a camp fire, it had sketched on the front cover a drawing of covered wagons and little illustrations of pioneer scenes inside to look original, though I suspected some of the recipes such as Pecan pie wasn't, but Cottontail pie I guessed would have been. I could have given it to you, but it went to Bookcycle when I had a clear out

Sounds like Ozy’s ‘‘struck gold, black gold, Texas tea,” he’ll be moving off with his kinfolk to Haigh Hall Cyril….no more shelters for him…Th’owd granny on’t rocking chair back ot’ van…….Pecan pie, Apple pie, jambalaya, any pie you can think of..good luck to him. We might get invites to barbecues..

Comment by: Poet on 16th July 2022 at 07:57

I wonder if Ozy has a ' fancy eating table ' .

Comment by: WN1 Standisher on 16th July 2022 at 10:09

Where you can eat " one of them thar billiards "

Comment by: DTease on 16th July 2022 at 11:47

Veronica, I can see grannie Clampet boiling up Lye Soap in the stable block and throwing Ozy’s tattered undercrackers in the cauldron! Followed by Ozy himself if he gives her any cheek!

Comment by: Veronica on 16th July 2022 at 13:24

Don’t know about ‘fancy
eating table’ but there might be a certain banjo player there with that very striking tune .. from the film ‘Deliverance!’ Duh,duh,da,da,da,da,da,dee….altogether now…wheelbarrows at the ready!.

Comment by: Veronica on 16th July 2022 at 13:57

Undercrackers at the ready Dtease at the vital point when the viddles are just about coming to the boil. They’ll certainly taste more , shall we say piquant! I think we’ll need tickets by invitation only to get past the gates.
