Electric Lime

Elevated in its Coloured

Leaves brighter than your oaks , ashes or sycamore

Emitted Luminescence – it would probably light up in the dark

Creating a lovely neon effect

To some insects – its a dream plant – saying “come and eat me”

Reality – the glow tells them to stay away

In case the leaves make them ill – only the bravest

Caterpillar dares to have a chomp

Rock

A post in response to the Tuesday Photo Challenge from Inky

Tuesday 26th March 2019

What’s with the guitar Inky ?

I thought i’d start with the musical link – an electric guitar. Clapton, May, Deacon come to mind. It’s loud but in time is methodical, and lyrical – its also the nearest thing to an electrical instrument that doesn’t need a programmer….it does need an amplifier though

Much like the Rocks you find on your average beach….(eh?)

Noisy little rocks on Kos

When the waves smack against the rocks its a bit like a percussion instrument. Depending on your location on the beach, the noises can be soft , hard or downright noisy, as the waves lap slap and crash against the shore

Get the wind to go through the holes in the rock, and you could be mistaken for hearing music being played, as theres a definate sound as the wind makes its way round the rock.

Add a chirp or two following the sound of the rocks and the sea – you have a three piece band 🙂

Reminiscent of something i read in Terry Pratchett’s Discworld Novel Soul Music

Music with Rocks in – Quite a ring to it too.

And all of this is Acoustic….no electric required.

Parallel

Parallel

particularly important

as things go, the way the tram lines

rails are aligned

as they have to be a certain distance for the

light rapid transport to be powered by

electrical lines

leading off to the destination ahead

Electric lime

Zingy little fruit,

full of zest and flavor

and powerful punch

 

perfect , placed in a jelly

sparky flavours contained in

a porcelain mould

 

Sparks of delight

pop off on the tongue

and your luminosity

 

Green for go ! your sign

the party power switches

are all turned on

The Horses came down the country Roads

Delivering by cart Black gold – Coal

To move the Iron Horse by Steam

And these mighty horses – fuelled by coal

Moved across rails on road

Powered by steam

Wheels of steel moved by steam

Replaced wagons on road

using engines fuelled by coal
