Lakeside

#writephoto #napowrimo

Long stretch of water,

ambling along waiting for something to happen

kites or falcons passing overhead or

excitable otters picking up sticks for a dam

something happening below

it’s the first sight of the fish

down at the lake bed

evading the fisherman – sat on the bank

Salmon

#cyw #salmon

Swimming against the flow, in an

attempt to keep their species going

laying eggs in a safe spot

many are laid, but

often they fall prey, to hungrier fish around them or

netted by the fisherman, who’s looking for something for tea

On Guard

Salford Quays, 27th October 2019

They’re ravishing the street again

plundering pigeons like pirates

sat hovering above the people

as they look for picnics to plunder

But who’s this flash feathered hero

saving our sandwiches ?

the pigeons fly off to another perch

when they see the falcon flying
