Start of a New Day

Greeting me beyond the curtains

long bright line of sky

of course, the sun isn’t full in the sky yet

when it is look forward to seeing the blue

Horizon II

#Fowc #Horizon #HorizonII

A shot of Duxford Airfield, Taken by Inky, for the planes taking off and the clouds in the horizon

Half way tween the earth and the sky

On which the sun exchanges places with the moon

Reality is although you can see it

In your eye line – you’ll find it impossible to reach

Zero degrees – and its all so far away

On the occasion you’ve reached your destination –

Next thing you see – is that place you want to be

Wednesday Morning, 6.30

Wednsday morning, 6.30 am : Image by Brian F Kirkham

An early morning piece from inky.

In twenty four society, there’s no time for beauty sleep

There’s parcels to be delivered from point A to B

and piles of paper to be rounded up for recycling

rolling down the main road – the recycling van rumbles

trying his best not to rouse the resting citizens

having run a race with Ra, and won

as the victor , returning to the depot sees the runner up

rise slow above the horizon – reward for the crew ? Breakfast.

Heading out west

Salford 19th June 2018

#life #travel #sunrise #breakfast #morning

I woke up early this morning, the local wildlife were up with the sun. I’m unaware of what they were discussing….probably breakfast, or maybe football ⚽️ . If anybody knows what rooks , blackbirds, song thrushes, and pigeons talk about over breakfast…please let me know

I spotted two aircraft travelling over the skies of Salford this morning. Don’t know where they were going, but I’m sure it was some place nice and hot. Sun is slowly making its way above the horizon in the east, soon it will be bright and sunny

The soft rolling traffic from the early morning Trafford road makes a somewhat pleasant accompaniment to the sound of the ticking clock. But in what’s now known as a twenty four hour society/world , there’s always deliveries to be made, early morning jobs to get to and work to be done

There’s a break in the quiet rumble of the traffic, as a Motorcycle rider mistakes one of the carriageways for a stretch of the Isle of Man TT race course. It’s awoken the pigeons kipping in the eaves of the nearby apartment block.

Another trail of white crosses the Salford skies as the rumble of early morning traffic continues. The broadcasters will be preparing the news items for delivery about now, whilst out on the waterfront, as the deliveries come in and out of the factories of Trafford park, and noise from The Trafford road begins to grow, feathered residents of the nearby basins are flexing their webbed feet , attending to cygnets and goslings all and pondering the really important issues of the day,

What’s for breakfast ?

Solitude

 

Alykanas Beach
Alykanas Beach

 

Early morning sunrise 🌅

the fishing boats crews asleep in bed

no one here but me and the sea 🌊

stillness of air and silence

only broken by the smallest of waves

lapping on the shore

burying my toes into uncharted sand

and tiny pebbles washed by the sea

enjoying the silence and the slightest of breezes

Islands

Daily post prompt – Island

No man is an Island – that’s how the tale goes

But for one hour, around sunrise on Alykanas Beach, I truly was at home on this little Greek island – Zakynthos

We’d gone there on a family holiday.  The plane had landed late that night, so I let Mum and Dad and the rest of our party have an extended nap in the family apartment.

There was no one there – just me, the sea and an occasional sea bird.

The rock I was sat on, led directly to the path of the apartment.

So as the waves lapped against the shore, I saw the morning sky turn from dark into light.

And upon taking the picture below, I popped my toes into the coolness of the Mediterranean sea.
