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

#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
Salford 9th March 2018
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!
Destination – Sand – for tough animals.
Even the hardiest elephant or
Ship of the desert
Expects a bit of
Torrential heat – bring on the rain!
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.
