Idyllic

#Fowc #Idyllic

It’s some people’s idea of paradise

your place away from the hustle and bustle of

days in the mighty metropolis

lakeland water set among peaceful hills

likelihood is though – everyone else has descended there too! 🙂

Gliding

#fowc #Gliding

Gliding through the water

The crew waited for that moment

the moment that was perfect

the moment to change direction

No Salty Afternoon Washes

No Swabbing the decks of Seawater

No trouble from the turning wind

Simply moving through the water

Simply cutting past the breakers

Simply Gliding through the sea

Birdsong (Summer)

No rumble of traffic

No noise in the street

Not many people

Navigating the street

But somewhere in th’ treetops

swaying in the air

families of birds are

chatting away there

Singing ’bout blue skies

and the weather that’s greet

while on mobile’s behind the glass

the humans all tweet

Drastic Haircut

In order to save their bosses some cash

the boys in charge of pruning

on the posh side of the road

gave the walkways arbors

really serious hair cuts

people were amused (or aghast)

as the trees they walked past

cautiously walking over in their shoes, pumps or boots

raised bricks caused by lumps of the trees roots.

Somethings Brewing…..(Photo prompt from Sue Vincent)


#beyondthestorm #writephoto

Something told you it wasn’t going to be a

Terrific idea to venture onto the hills today, but

Of course you were out voted – as you and your pals

Rambled up the public footpath, seeking out paradise –

Maybe you could discuss what you found in that shelter – Atop the hill

Packing

#SoCs #Holidays

Packing our bags again

as we head off for a country break

camping under some national park stars

key to this essential journey – notepad, camera and pencils

if needed – wellies and wet weather gear

navigation and maps essential for hiking and

good sleeping bag for kipping under canvas

Mother Earth

fallen leaves on a Salford park bench captured by inky using a SAMSUNG Digimax 202

Announcing the arrival of autumn

under and around each branch of the trees

the keeper of the trees, mother earth has been busy

undertaking her role of changing the colours

making colourful patterns for people to look at

note, the noise that they make – mother earth has done that too!

Octpowrimo – Seeing

#Octpowrimo #Seeing

Look down the path – and what do you see ?

cascade of colours moved by the autumn breeze

or cold bare branches, bending in the wind ?

I can see an opportunity

to be the first person through the leaves – before the snow 🙂

Serenity

#FOWC #Serenity #Grateful

Trees on an empty beach in Greece, On Calm Blue Waters

Reminiscence of a sandy beach on a greek island

Enjoying the sound of the sea

Lapping against the islands shore

As I take five, under the shade of a cool olive tree

Xpectations – none, just looking forward to the rest of the day

Countdown to the beach

#freedomofexpression #iscriblr #countdown #creativity #beach

Countdown to the beach – (p) 2019 Brian F Kirkham

Soon it will be summer,

Under the shade we will be

Making sandcastles on the shore

Moments away from the sea

Expect a visit from a fish or two

Reacting as you dip your toes in the waters
