When i was little, i used to go

Out with mum and dad , and take in the

Natural beauty of the coastal beaches and amassed hillsides nearby

Dipping a toe in cold water and

Enjoying a walk

Round the bays, looking for interesting pebbles

What’s beyond that window in the cliff face

Or hiding in that hole in the sand ?

Nobody knew – so we decided to look

Dad helping lift up pebbles – as

Excitable little people watched

Red coloured crabs moving sideways towards the sand

Sunset

Salford, 31st March 2020

A poem on the sun going down by inky – its been published by Forward Poetry, appeared on Luna’s blog at Lunatheblog.com and now its back home – enjoy the read………

The pebbles on the shore
were picked up and stacked
for skimming on the sea

Stacked with care
Precariously balanced
The wind made them wobble

The sun watched as
it created shadowy silhouettes
around the sandy shore

Till the tide began to turn
and the stack on the shore
alerted the little ones

The pebbles on the shore
told the children playing on the sand
it was time to go for dinner

Weathered

Another poem by inky

Salford (via Llandudno) , 11th January 2018

Weathered

I like the pebble beach at Llandudno.

each of those stones, has their own tale to tell

time taken over millions of years to form,

then broken up and shaped over another stretch of time

to create the many shapes that come together as a flat bed by the Irish Sea

great for skimming on the surface – if you can find just the right round ones

some of the cast are smooth to the touch and shiny as a button

but a word of caution – wear your shoes – some of these are sharp!

Rock to Sand

 

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES
Seaside scene created at BASIC in Salford, photo by inkdrop

 

mother nature’s art
created on our island
for everyone’s eye

the rough sands of time
eat slowly away at rock
carving a coastline

aided by the wind
and the foam sea in the west
the sand carves the cliffs

fallen rock is smoothed
by the foam of the sea
and pebbles shimmer

little tiny rocks
gather with the seashells
to create soft sand

and in a moment
time passes as shore grows
as sand in timer moves
