Veiled

#writephoto #veiled

Up on the hillside, who is that

hiding up in those misty hills

are we being over looked

by giant’s giving us chills ?

for out there in the distance

characters standing still

leaving us nothing but shadows

only caught by pencil or quill

The Grove

#Promptuarium #Hauntedgrove

Haunted forest ?

a likely story !

up till now – she’d believed the tales her brother told her

not realising ,

the creatures in their homes in the trees were

even more frightened of her – and in the

dark – it was just the forest creatures looking out

Shadow V.3

#FOWC #Shadow

A response by inky to Fandango’s One word challenge

Sunshine’s monochrome friend

Heavens Universal to animal, bird, reptile and human

As the sun shines its beams – it appears on the floor

Disappearing when the clouds cover it up

Of course – they disappear

When the sun goes behind – reappearing on a bright moon

Challenge 30 – No. 28

“Depth”

Down among the depths, taken at the Sea life centre, Old Trafford, Manchester


Deep down on the sea bed

Eager crustaceans

Play cat and mouse with

The fishermen up above them, and

Hoping they avoid the fishermans traps as they

Scurry along the sandy sea bed

Memories of a glass bottomed boat

Rhodes, 18th October 2018

Watched with intent

As Mediterranean blue

Mixed with Aegean aqua

Travelling over waves

As crabs met tentacles

Admiring the land lubbers

Shellfish communicate with conch

The shows about to start

As hermit crabs scuttle towards the bigger fish

In an instant they appear

Waving a fin or a tentacle

In the greenest of blues

Catch of the day

Passes along the hull

To say hello and goodbye

La Mer

21st July 2018

#Sea #Mer #Water

Take me to the sea.

It’s the blue stuff most of the sea creatures rely on

It’s home for the whale, the shark and even the dolphin

(though you’ll never see the dolphin taking its waters)

forever being topped up by mother nature

and the clouds in the skies

What its favourite pastime ? Creating waves

If the boats want to take them on – let them

Navigating their way by sail to unseen treasures

Down in the deep

Wonder

Salford 9th March 2018

Wonder

 

When you look around the world you live in,

Open your eyes – for sometime you can be oblivious to the

Number of things , living on the land you call home

Down in the Water, and Up in the air

Every kind of creature lives on the planet –

Rejoice and enjoy the things around you – they’re eyedropping!

Desert

Desert

Destination – Sand – for tough animals.

Even the hardiest elephant or

Ship of the desert

Expects a bit of

Relief from

Torrential heat – bring on the rain!

Keeping an eye on the clock

Keeping an eye on the clock

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Finite Creatures.”

The realisation I wasn’t superman…

Could have been when I was five, at my first fall in the school playground

each cut knee – a badge of honour…

Or later in my teenage years when some eedjit pushed me off a wall and I ended up concussed

Or Perhaps when I had my IV shunt replaced to save my life (that was a biggie)

They say a cat has nine lives…this cat has lost three.

So I keep an eye on the clock – Time’s Precious.
