Causeway

#Writephoto #Causeway

Causeway (Image by SC Vincent)

Created as a path across the water

a stretch of sand , gravel or road

usually gets wet when the tide comes in or

sea or river levels rise

especially after really bad storms

when that happens – its advisable to take

another route – or else

you’ll do more than get your feet wet!

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

Golden

#CYW #Gold

There’s nothing better than a summer sky

warm coloured tones of

corn or wheat growing in the farmers field

or maybe the thought

of sinking your toes into warm golden sands

before dipping them in the sea

breakfast dinner or tea – wonderous eggs

dipped with bread soldiers

for an afternoon feast

Desert Sand III

#Cyw #DesertSand

people did not know

where it travelled quickly from

coming in darkness

Mighty chariots

Once painted by the frost

Now covered in sand

Roadsweepers Smile at

Opportunity to build

Coins in the piggybank

While down on the shore

the dunes off the north coast

grew taller a bit

Desert Sand

#CYW #Desert #Sand

Drifting in over land and sea

enveloping everything it passes

sand from the sahara travels on the wind

easily passing over land and sea

resting on roofs, cars and even plants

the succulents smile – they’ve seen this before

Soil looking more like blackpool than old trafford

as grains land on the turfs and lawns

notable how the gardener greets it though –

drainage is improved by this helpful visitor

In other words – Footprints on the beach

in response to https://patriciasplace.me/2019/07/17/in-other-words-the-beach/

beach sea seashell

three sets of feet – Walking on the Sand

Rendezvous with candy floss

Sweet stuff acquired – but only two pairs of feet

Smaller pair of toes, treated by Big Feet

To a Piggyback

Western’s always had one of these in a movie,

as they rolled through wild American country on a search for

gold, minerals or prosperous plains of plenty

over rocky terrain, sandy deserts and swamps they’d travel

north south east, but mostly west on search for a fortune

Recall

Salford 17th April 2019

#FOWC

It’s the ability

to remember

names and faces and dates

times and events

from a long time away

so memories aren’t lost

of moments from a time

where the best time you had

was splashing your feet in the sea

Challenge 30 – No. 30 – Texture

“Taking the rough with the smooth”

Raised impressions of copper coins

Out of the Aquarium, smooth glass beads fool the fish

Under the fingers, some textures provide something to hold on to

gritty sand , much like the coastal rock it came from and

Home to a variety of creatures, whose armour mirror their own.

Challenge 30 – No. 28

“Depth”

Down among the depths, taken at the Sea life centre, Old Trafford, Manchester


Deep down on the sea bed

Eager crustaceans

Play cat and mouse with

The fishermen up above them, and

Hoping they avoid the fishermans traps as they

Scurry along the sandy sea bed
