Tangent

#fowc #tangent

Taking road signs for granted

and following your navigation device – ignoring your own eyes is

notably, a recipe for disaster, as it

goes its own merry way and you

expect it to guide you to your

next destination – you think you’re headed to a sandy southern beach

the reality ? – you’re headed for rocky cliffs and pea shingle

Map

#map #fowc

many a sailor or perhaps

a buccaneer has used one of these in

pursuit of treasure

many you will find,

as a guide for potential explorers

putting their feet across peak district peat bogs

most are a guide for weary travellers

ambling across the uk road network

perhaps they could have taken the train ?

Compass

#fowc #compass

Crafted over time for those

On the seven seas to

Move across areas of charts

Positioned to cross from

Areas of land in the north to island in the

South, enabling prospectors to

Sail in the search for treasure

Heading for the warm

#birds #nest #poetry

The mercury retreating was a sign

Restless mums and dads

Feeding their offspring

So flying lessons could begin

Up in the nest

They flapped their wings

Facing the worst

The weather could bring

And out from the nest

They jumped and they flapped

Heading for a tree

Their mum and dad mapped

Leaving the nest

For sunnier climbs

Hoping to return

After the winter time

Navy Blue

Navy ?

A Nautical colour

Very respected as the colour of the senior service

Yachts to Dreadnoughts – are adorned in it

 

North to South – Compass bearings

Are used to navigate

Vessels through dangerous waters –

Yomping through ice and hiding from the enemy

 

Naval Company Colours

Anchored off the shoreline are

Very Dark in Colour – when not in camouflage

Yet Revered by all who wear it.

 

Note, however though all men on ship wear the colour

An officer, wears slightly darker

Verifying his rank on the vessel

Year upon Year

Borders

in response to
Border

Borders can be defined in many ways.

On your standard map they are hard ridges that define a country, state, city, town or village.

Round my neck of the woods, they’re defined by Hillsides, Mountains, lakes and Forests.

Depending on where you live, you can cross a number of borders within an hour

Even more if you travel by train or by plane

Reality is – you wont know if you meet a border till you get to a crossing.

Compass

Created by a master craftsman to

Orientate the

Map of the known world

Passing through

Africa, The Americas, Europe, and Asia –

Seven mighty continents and

Seawater surrounding them
