Sunset over Alykanas

I watched
with my feet still sat in wet sand
as the evening skies faded
like a fire in outer space
day turned slowly into night
and silver fish still circled
as a central point of
fire and ice
waited for the many moons
in the grecian sky to settle in their spots
like diamonds in the sky

Monochrome

The colour seeped out of the image

as the dial on the camera was turned

in seconds, pastel colours turned into shades of grey

as the metallic silver objects shined

Silver

#Coloryourworld #cyw #silver #metallic

Some say they prefer it to Gold

it’s the way the

light falls on it you see

venerated by wise men and pirates alike

everyone knows – this precious metal – is secure in its place

revered by every smith that works it and every miner that hews it from the ground

Colour of the crown

Crown.jpg

#Coloryourworld #cyw #royalpurple

Perched on her majesty’s head

Under the frame of silver and jewel

Royal colour emits from the crown

Perhaps – it denotes her status – as head of her church

Like priests and bishops wear the colour in spring at mass in parishes up and down

England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales

Fortune (acrostic)

Fortune

For as long as prospectors keep talking

Oregon’s wagon trail has attracted people far and wide

Round the wild valleys they roam

Trekking around the carved out valleys for

Unforetold riches from the Horde of Coins

Navigating the challenging terrain can be difficult

Enjoy your quest – but expect trouble along the gold scattered route.

Treasure

Treasure

Taken from merchant ships, by

Rascals of the seven seas

Every pirate worth their salty sea legs

Admires the prize of jewels, silver and gold doubloons

Some keep their precious horde hidden

Under tropical sands , deserted shores – only

Revealed many moons later by a younger

Explorer, following the pirates charts and maps

Golden Moments

In another place, whilst I eat my tea

Our brave athletes are going for victory

flying round tracks and fields of all kind

focused on goals in body and mind

Prepared for the task – with targets in hand

strategies made – and races planned

Zeus watches on as the events unfold

as Britain goes hunting for Bronze, Silver or Gold

And as world meets in Rio to follow the race

The athletes are focused on the first, second, third place

So as flame it burns – give the athletes a cheer

as medals are won and old records – disappear.

Capturing that star

In response to Reach

 

Ready Team ? its time for your moment in the sun.

Everyone is cheering you on – the prize is in sight

As you enter the arena – its fever pitch as

Cohorts of fans – push you towards your ultimate goal

Handling that precious medal of Bronze, Silver or Gold

 

(Time to capture that star!)
