Sedate

Some say “take it easy”

even if the sunshine is full in the sky

destination sun lounger is the place to be

after all, you’re not working for a week or two

time to enjoy the sunshine

elongated on your own sunlounger

Coming in

#Tides

blue water beckons

you to come to the place where

sand and sea meet up

impishly playing

a game of tag with your toes

and leaving just as fast

Little waves bobbing

up and down in evening relay

Big wave is coming

Take heed of warnings

Big wave likes making a splash

note – you will get wet

Small Creatures

#writephoto

Stood on the shore in their finest attire

Mum dad and little un

All leaving a trail on the sand

Looking out for the funny coloured seashells

Likelyhood is they’ll find you first

Crab like creatures

red, black or white

enter the range of view

as they pop up to say hello

taking a step left and sometimes right

until at last they

reach the waters edge

expect them to take a

sly nip of your wellies as they pass you

Turquoise Blue

It’s that certain colour, that reminds you of your holidays

The colour of the sea at the certain time of day

up in the sky, when right foot dipped its toes to see if it was

ready to take a dip in the water, or

quench your thirst with a cool drink by the sands

under the water – the smallest of fishes circle your toes to say hello

out ahead – there’s great shoals – but this small shoals

intrigued by the sight of your feet

so you follow them into the warm blue green

enjoying watching them nibble at your feet – it tickles!

Chips by the beach

#childhood #beach #memories #Blackpool

Childhood reminiscences

held by a moment

in grease proof paper

positioned in a way – that

seagulls didn’t spot the hidden treasures

barmcakes by Blackpool prom ?

yearly occurance – on the days they’d be testing the lights

toasty hot – fresh out of the fryer

helpings of salt and vinegar a must – but

every sauce under the sun is available for a small silver coin

By the seafront wall

enjoying the taste of battered cod and chips

as the waves gently lap against the sand

coming in ? the sea enquires – sorry i say, i’ve just got

hot – Maybe tomorrow…..as a tram passes by

Summers Arrived!

#Napowrimo #Summer

Deckchairs on the beach

They’re back out on the shore

ready to greet you all

as the weather turns warmer

deckchairs in their finery

in their special spots on the beach

the ice cream parlour is to the west and

in a few minutes, the punch and judy man will be

out with his stall….is it a

new thing ? No!….it’s an age old thing – like building

sandcastles

Plunge

#fowc #plunge

In the warmth of a Roasting Grecian Sun

the cocky young adventurer

might have been forgiven by his elders

for trying to impress the maids sat by the beach

what he didn’t know

was the water that day was more arctic than athenian

and made his heart leap quicker than the girls

Three sea shells

Three shells on the sand

Picked up in playtime

On a summers afternoon

One half of a home

That welcomed in guests

Before enjoying them for lunch

Crafty crustacean

Now nestled in his new home

A nautilus shell

Hiding away on the seabed

Is that the sand moving?

No, just another sea snail searching for lunch

Sunset

Salford, 31st March 2020

A poem on the sun going down by inky – its been published by Forward Poetry, appeared on Luna’s blog at Lunatheblog.com and now its back home – enjoy the read………

The pebbles on the shore
were picked up and stacked
for skimming on the sea

Stacked with care
Precariously balanced
The wind made them wobble

The sun watched as
it created shadowy silhouettes
around the sandy shore

Till the tide began to turn
and the stack on the shore
alerted the little ones

The pebbles on the shore
told the children playing on the sand
it was time to go for dinner
