Ra passed by his friends the clouds

as the earth turned Northern skies from Day to Dusk

in travelling from west to east

newly formed stratus went pink in surprise

by ra’s disappearance to a temperature rise

out on eastern skies began the day

while in northern skies moon and stars they played

 

No Place like home

Salford (Via Crete, Zakynthos, and Kos), July 21st 2018

Have Albus backpack will travel….

When i’m travelling, what things do i take for a piece of home

(1) My camera kit

It’s my hobby, and there’s no better time to capture some cracking scenery with my Nikon DSLR.

(2) Diary, Notepad and Writing stuff

When im out taking snaps, it pays to record where i’ve been.  I normally keep a travel log of the events whilst im away, and this usually finds its way on to here,

(3) Boiled Sweets / Jelly Babies

I Buy these at the Airport, and they usually last all week.

(4) Paperback / Kindle / Phrasebook

Reading Material for when the beach is out of bounds, the phrasebook helps me with the street signs and if i need any local questions. The kindle also acts as my music box and has a couple of video games on it

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 ?

Parallel

Parallel

particularly important

as things go, the way the tram lines

rails are aligned

as they have to be a certain distance for the

light rapid transport to be powered by

electrical lines

leading off to the destination ahead

Big Wide World

Explore

Salford 4th April 2018

The world is immense – to most people

Over the water there’s places you’ve never been to

During your lifetime – you’ll experience many a new thing

Daffodils won’t be the only flower you chomp on as you

Let your little toes explore the water (with mum and dad’s help)

Enjoying the nice warm sand in a place thats new whilst

Relaxing under a colourful umbrella.

Drift

Adrift

Down the road blown by the wind

rafts of snow travel quickly

in forms that move like starlings

forward and back, the snowflakes move

till the wind drops, and they land softly on the lawn

 

deftly floating it’s way out to sea

rickety branches travel across the water

in expectation they’ll

find their way through the salty sea

towards the sandy shore

 

Here and Now

Salford 19th February 2018

Present

I can look back on yesterday

Ponder my actions

Examine my thoughts

Tomorrow lies ahead

but sat here in the moment

its so far away

Preparation – in a short while

for journeys to come

can ease any last minute nerves

The future can wait

till the sun rises again

when tomorrow becomes today

Permitted

Permit

Peter smiled, as the postie dropped the

Envelope through the letterbox – no more

Rumpus waiting for taxi cabs

Movement around town – was now assured

Indeed , he could go all around the region for the same price

Today, he’ll check out whats happening – Tomorrow, he’ll be there (with his carer)

Wail like a graceful swan dear driver

it doesn’t matter – everyone around you is looking

to others – its like the circus is in town

the only things missing are your make up and

evaporating sense of humour

reacting to traffic was never your strong point – and its showing
