I

Currency – created from metals

Out of the ground.

In different shapes, sizes and colours – depending on

National Border

II

Collected carefully

Out of spending larger amounts

In time – and taken in the piggybank – they’re changed for

New Notes

III

Coppers transformed from

out of the purse

into something

nice to eat, drink, wear or play with

Up the Stairs

#Promptuarium

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

Tumbleweed: C/o Bing Images

The star of any dry gulch western,

hasn’t got many lines in the script

but upon arrival makes an impact

he’ll give you a sense of this lawless town

simply by rolling from the bank to the saloon

as the cowboy comes to sort the bad guys out

Darkness

#Writephoto #Darkness

Due to a change in Ra’s schedule

Arrangements were made to entertain the wildlife

Rainclouds danced about in the changing sky, but they

Kept on calling for the sun to stay about

Night time wasn’t fun for most of the animals in the fields

Exception ? those living under ground who would

Surface, during the dark hours for a

Snack or two.

#Socs #Links

Like the loops of a chain keeping them together

Like the wires transmitting the news to your TV

Like the road that goes from A to B

Something keeps them together

Romans Rolling over Rural Scenes

Rocky paths for Stallions and Soldiers

Ripping through riverbanks

Miles of track traversing the country

Making its way from Manchester to Middlesex

Mighty juggernauts moving from north to south

Somethings keeps them together

Traversing over hill mountain and dale

To get to the office the shops or the coast

Taking the most direct route possible (sometimes via a tunnel)

Delays ?

Daily occurrence – as

Double time spent fixing holes or faults

Reactions to Roadworks

or leaves on the line ? – Revolutionary

Rolling up to your Destination by bus not train

Choices

#Socs #Choices

Choices you make, can form you later on down the line

How you make them is down to you

Of course, there are many paths to travel, to where you want to go

It’s a decision you have to make…..

Cold or Hot, Coast – Countryside – or City

Even eating, can give you pause for thought

Should you have golden syrup or chocolate sauce on your pancakes ?

Derwentwater, Keswick,  Lake district, UK

There’s something almost magical

about the Lake water here at sunset

I don’t know myself – what it might be

but as the sun pops down behind trees

the hills and the water take on a purple like hue

bring out colours of heathers that’s grew

up on the hillsides where the flocks of herdwick sheep

are resting till morning, quite sound asleep
