Risk

The reality is usually greater than the prize

if you want to leap out of a plane, or over a cliff edge – you

sometimes have to understand the dangers of what you’d call “Fun”

killing yourself in the search for thrills ? Not a great idea.

When i was little, i used to go

Out with mum and dad , and take in the

Natural beauty of the coastal beaches and amassed hillsides nearby

Dipping a toe in cold water and

Enjoying a walk

Round the bays, looking for interesting pebbles

What’s beyond that window in the cliff face

Or hiding in that hole in the sand ?

Nobody knew – so we decided to look

Dad helping lift up pebbles – as

Excitable little people watched

Red coloured crabs moving sideways towards the sand

It’s your choice!

Partake

Life is a long branch of events and choices

some shy away from making decisions

whilst others grab the bull by the horns

climbing the rockface

or in some cases – jumping off it

 

So – when it comes down to it

the decisions you make are yours

will you dip your toes in the shark infested sea

or play russian roulette with crusty crustaceans on the beach ?

all those decisions – are down to you

Precipice

Salford 17th May 2017

Precipice

perhaps it wasn’t the greatest idea

resting your legs of the edge of the cliff

everybody is now yelling at you to

come away from where you are sitting

in case the floor beneath you happens to come away

pulling yourself up and sitting somewhere safer

is a great idea, maybe that way people

could enjoy the view and not be

engaged in the story you created
