Three sea shells

Three shells on the sand

Picked up in playtime

On a summers afternoon

One half of a home

That welcomed in guests

Before enjoying them for lunch

Crafty crustacean

Now nestled in his new home

A nautilus shell

Hiding away on the seabed

Is that the sand moving?

No, just another sea snail searching for lunch

Christmas Lights

Bauble Ornament in a real Christmas tree

Coming out each year

Happily brightening up the festive tree

Red and Blue Baubles lit up by the fairy lights

Its what makes the glitter twinkle you know

Soon , the children will be

Taking a look underneath the tree. but for now they’re

Making a moment of the decorations

And watching the lights bounce around the branches

Santa’s not going to miss this festive delight, that makes everybody smile

Walking off the beaten track

Walking down the beaten track

from sandy coast to apartment

passing the locals in their flats

i’m enjoying the sun on a warm summers day

carrying a bucket of trinkets

turfed up by the ocean

by the time i get back they’ll be dried off

and i’ll have something to do

while the sun heads beyond the horizon

Sparrows

#Napowrimo

San Rafael Algarve Portugal, 2017

Surrounding the border of the hotel swimming pool

petite full feathered friends

are creating their own kind of waves

roaming around the water and cooling off as

ripples are created as they

outlandishly divebomb on the

waters edge before

surfacing above the sunbathers

Tropical Fish

Artwork by Inky : Fish created for the inkwell at the toolshed.

Sinking my toes into deep sand

while the fish swim around my legs

i look like a colossus to the

many under water – as my feet

make their way through the waves

its only when i stop – to take a look at the horizon do they

nibble at the soles underneath

great – a free pedicure

Holiday time

16th November 2019

Heavens above! is it Christmas already ?

Of course not….there’s five more weeks till then, but

Look around you and you’ll already see

Instant signs the festive season is almost here

Decorations, presents and Festive Food

All over the place, and yet – when Boxing Day gets here

You’ll all be talking about your two weeks in the sun

Summer Break

Sitting in the garden

Playing with a ball

As Mum or dad

Call out – from beyond the hall

Excitement awaits – we’re off to the museums!

Down goes your head – you don’t want to see ’em

Of course, its not like you’re grateful – you’ve been there before

Up with your classmates – till gone half past four

The holidays are for fun – out in the fresh air!

! You’ll be going somewhere sunny soon – but you don’t care! !

In other words – Footprints on the beach

three sets of feet – Walking on the Sand

Rendezvous with candy floss

Sweet stuff acquired – but only two pairs of feet

Smaller pair of toes, treated by Big Feet
