The tide is coming in
its wiping out the deftly deposited footprints
enveloping them in sea water
The tide is coming in
its tempting little toes
daintily dancing down the sand to
enter its cool waters
The Tide is coming in
its cartwheeling shells in its waves and
depositing them on the
edge of the dry bit of the beach
Salford (via Navagio Beach) , 22nd February 2018
White Sandy beaches,
Offset by clear blue sea
Navigated rusted boat sat by the cliffside
Down where the anchor should be
Encrusted with Barnacles and other sea creatures
Rock formations , home to a multitude of life
From strings of mussels to hermit crabs
Unless someone picks them up – they’ll sleep away in the sun
Looking around when its time for tea
in response to cees photography challenge
To start with, here’s a night time shot of the Holiday inn express on Salford’s Quayside, taken at Dusk by one of the Docks or as the people call them now basins 🙂
You could call this a 3D shot – as it was Dark as well !
The canal is pretty Deep, and joins up to the river irwell and mersey
This shot was taken during a family holiday to the Turkish Resort of Oludeniz. The beach was teaming with wildlife, maybe down to the hordes of fish that sat in the clear blue waters by the sand. The Ducks raised a smile as they waddled about in the sea.
Sat a cafe bar on a greek island, enjoying fish and chips
taking in the breeze off the azure blue sea and
observing the comings and goings of the day – when
reactions are heightened by two feathered locals
kept company down the marble path by their owner
! i’d tell you what they were – but i reckon you would guess!
It begins simply enough,
a simple bucket of bricks
stacked up from top to bottom
till at last – they topple
oh what fun!
The next thing you know
you’re building a wall
with stuff from the sea
and occasionally it falls
oh what fun
Another tale poached from my repository at Allpoetry.com by me – Hope you Like it
The sun set on the sand , that summers night,
heading to brighten another place bright.
It slowly went behind the sea
and shimmered on waters, in front of me
The sky changed colour from blue to red,
and slowly the sun dipped its head.
And as the sun dipped behind the bay
stars of afar began to display.
It took a while to make a mark
the moon appearing in an arc.
A carpet of stars appeared from up high
twinkling as I passed them by
and water in the bay, reflected the light
of the new moon that lit up the night.
Salford (Via Llandudno), 14th June 2017
Four sets of feet walking in line on the beach
As you follow the line of footprints
Patterns begin to emerge
as footprints snake from east to west
smaller feet seemingly running rings around the big ones
but as we reach the end of the walk
these little feet disappear
washed away by northern water ? – No!
on their way to Fish and Chips
a little one has had his pips
his battery – is a little whacked
so Grandad has given him a piggyback.
Out in the Grecian sun
whilst sausages are cooking in the chefs pan
turning brown from pink
the restaurants recipients
are lying on sun loungers
or sat on coral sand beach
worshipping Ra above
in a vain attempt
to mimic their luncheon.
