Turtle

#Octpowrimo #Memories #Holiday #Turtle #turkey

Soapstone turtle from oludeniz, turkey

Travelling from quite a fair distance

Up on my bedside cupboard, lives a soap stone turtle

Regaled in fancy patterns, carved by the artisan

Turns heads with newcomers who haven’t seen him

Likes to hang about with others of his kind

Except – while he is Black and White – his pal is in colour

I like patterns

you can find them all around you,

whether its in nature , or in your home furnishings

in a mural or a picture

I Volunteer at Imperial War Museum North, in Manchester, and a key place you spot patterns are in the camouflaged objects around the exhibition space


Most camouflage patterns are inspired by Nature. I was lucky enough to capture a picture of this lizard while he was standing still – out in the distance his patterned skin would have blended into the tree, as if he was part of it….Great for hide and seek.


Mother nature’s rather good with patterns as well, together with jack frost. This pic was taken in the winter season, and although it seems random, there’s a definite structure and pattern to the way the crystals of frost have formed on the car roof.

“Patterns”

Patterns in the hologram

As i moved the card to take its picture

Was it the fragments dancing on the surface

or the collision of shapes

creating a carousel of colour

as the rainbow flew by ?

Inchworm

In time – you’ll become a wonderful thing

Noted for the wonderful patterns on your wing

Caterpillar family – small you may be

Hoping to sleep in the best of the tree

When you are little – you cannot be seen

Out eating the leaves of the trees whilst you’re green

Remaining on trees till you start to take flight

Making small kids smile from morning through night

Jack frost – the artist

Anybody telling you the weathers improving – I have evidence to the contrary if you’re living in the Northern Hemisphere. Jack Frost was out again last night

Location – The Drive where Mum and Dad park the car

And as you can plainly see – Dear old Jack has danced all over it!

However, I do like the patterns he’s left on the roof – its quite artistic.

Dad isn’t that impressed – he’s scraping jack’s artwork off the windows.
