Older than me
For this challenge, I scoured the archive of my photos looking for an old photo…..I didn’t find one (Ha Ha) but among my archive I did find this
Just up the road from where I live in Salford. It was built in the 19th Century, and the spire still shows the date on when it was first built.
Upon its decommission as a church the spire was given a bit of a spruce up and is now a local landmark by the entrance to the motorway.
I wrote an acrostic on the spire – and you should find it below in the related section.
Three Coins in the Fountain
Salford, 7th June 2016
Three coins in a fountain, in a patch of green in a City in Europe
Three coins – thrown in at first light of a Mediterranean Morning
Three coins, shimmering under the blue water
Three coins, magnified in the wet
Three coins, small currency, change for a coffee
Three coins, they shine, One silver – two copper
Three coins, that made a little one smile
Three coins, for three little wishes
Three coins, that travelled quickly – high in the sky
Three coins, that splashed down to a marbled fountain bed

Oh, Noble Father of this Town
Fruits of your Tremendous Feet
