Appleby – in – Westmoreland, Lake district

Hard hat and rigging applied

i found myself scaling down the side

of a very rocky hillside

My own personal Everest

quite a way from the top of the hill

down to the bottom

I felt reasonably safe

secure in the ropes and clips

i was attached to

Half way – i felt able

to take a shortish reststop

viewing left and right

Feet feeling for stops

to land on before taking

another descent

Terrafirma ? Achievement

as i looked where i had been

and all by myself

A car is not an Adventure

though it could just get you there

saving you the shoe leather

or even the bus fare

It gets you there from A to B

using the various road and track

Travelling down endless steel railed paths

and buckets of flattened tarmac

It’d be great – if it got you to places

without needing a top-up or three (to be frank)

but it just gets you to the nearest station

on a single tank

so as you head down the highway

in search of your seaside abode

your chariot is eating your fish and chips

as it burns down the road

Beach Childhood Holidays Travel

Adventure comes

from a small leather case

stepping onto the plane

and heading to a place

well out of normal reach

definately not your

normal nearby beach

imagining how happy you will be

sat with your mum on dad – on a spot by the sea

Up the Stairs


Moving to the town

was always going to be

one grand adventure

Barleycorns exchanged for

the finest food money could

buy – right by the door

If you knew the spots

sweet pastries from beyond the

usual mousehole

But dangers afoot

Living in the Metro town

Neighbourhood felines

Nature Poetry


#Fowc #Rapid

Running quickly through two rocky cliffs

carving out minerals as they go

water foaming while turning and tumbling

while adventure seekers in their boat

get splashed about – as it hops

and jumps – over the white foam
