On the Sands

#beach #quiet #moment

Early morning

calm before the chaos

watching the sun pop its head

above the waterline

catching those precious

early morning rays

watching her shadow like a little girl

as she leaves footprints in the sand

Motion

#socs #poetry #motion

Stream of Consciousness Saturday Banner

the waves moved us on

destination isle of man

behind us north wales

sails blown here to there

waters waves breaking against the boat

while some dived down deck

crashing waters hazardous

getting wet ? least of worries

grateful for lighthouse

Links

#Socs #Links

Like the loops of a chain keeping them together

Like the wires transmitting the news to your TV

Like the road that goes from A to B

Something keeps them together

Romans Rolling over Rural Scenes

Rocky paths for Stallions and Soldiers

Ripping through riverbanks

Miles of track traversing the country

Making its way from Manchester to Middlesex

Mighty juggernauts moving from north to south

Somethings keeps them together

Traversing over hill mountain and dale

To get to the office the shops or the coast

Taking the most direct route possible (sometimes via a tunnel)

Delays ?

Daily occurrence – as

Double time spent fixing holes or faults

Reactions to Roadworks

or leaves on the line ? – Revolutionary

Rolling up to your Destination by bus not train

Shimmer

Beach (Image : SC Vincent)

Sole observer watching by the shore, as

hopping and skipping towards the beach

in a race to get to him

many of Neptune’s and Ra’s children

move hop skip and jump creating colourful patterns

each one hoping they’ll get there first

racing bring smiles to all who see it

Lighthouse

Beacon beaming from the bright tower

provides guidance for the skipper of a trawler

as he pulls his catch towards the harbour

following the light

that skips along the water

created by the bright bulbt

hat turns around in the tower

Gliding

#fowc #Gliding

Gliding through the water

The crew waited for that moment

the moment that was perfect

the moment to change direction

No Salty Afternoon Washes

No Swabbing the decks of Seawater

No trouble from the turning wind

Simply moving through the water

Simply cutting past the breakers

Simply Gliding through the sea

Watchers (Image by SC Vincent)

Family sit on the bank,

they’ve been doing this for years

keeping an eye out for their neighbours

providing cover from the atlantic wind

for the plants, and sometimes an animal or bird

and giving shade to the pretties in pink

their reward for this task

watching the breakers

coming in to the shore

Manatee

#CYW #Manatee

Painting of a manatee….by inky (original image c/o Bing)

Living under water

Looking after the bed

Making sure he and his family are fed

Keeping the sea grass as short as can be

the underwater moo – moo – the manatee

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!

Iceberg

#Writeclub #Iceberg

Iceberg

In the watery depths – it waits
Cold hearted assassin
Engaging its prey
Boats don’t stand a chance…
Even when clad with mighty armour – They’re
Rounded up as they try to escape – and attacked,
Grounded – or Sunk

If wide eyed

Captains don’t open their

Eyes – the crew they work with will get a surprise

Being jostled by the giant of frozen ice

Engaging a giant ? the boat pays a price

Rocking the boat or bashing its hull

Gushing in seawater till the hull , it is full
