Water reflecting sunlight, Image by SC Vincent

Should any foolhardy person want to go treasure hunting

it’s not the treasure horde of a

long lost pirate down in that water

view you see is merely Ra peering at himself in a mirror

even if you went down into the depths

reflections would evaporate….and you would only be saying Hi to fish.

Chasing Rainbows

A response to photo challenge #319 at mindlovemiserysmenagerie.wordpress.com

Appearance of seven bright colours

Breaking through the skies leads to a

Chase through the streets by some in a

Desperate (or plain daft) attempt to grab

Elven, pixie or Leprechaun treasure

Fate decrees though, by the time the hunters

Get to their multi-coloured target , the treasure will

Have been moved…to another end of another rainbow.

Map

#map #fowc

many a sailor or perhaps

a buccaneer has used one of these in

pursuit of treasure

many you will find,

as a guide for potential explorers

putting their feet across peak district peat bogs

most are a guide for weary travellers

ambling across the uk road network

perhaps they could have taken the train ?

Compass

#fowc #compass

Crafted over time for those

On the seven seas to

Move across areas of charts

Positioned to cross from

Areas of land in the north to island in the

South, enabling prospectors to

Sail in the search for treasure

The box

#promptuarium

sat by the sea shore

left by some peg legged pirate

locked treasure awaits

uncovered booty

hidden away for decades

awaiting release

precious gold and jewels

lie sleeping in the casket

waiting for a key

Hidden Away

Bury

By the line of palm trees

Under the golden sands of an island paradise

Riches beyond compare lie hidden

You might never find them – they’ve been hidden away!

Aquamarine

#Coloryourworld  #CYW #Aquamarine #Sea #Jewel #Birthstone

aquamarine

A precious stone – that’s what you are

Quite a beauty, like the colour of the sea

Until they found you in the rocks

A treasure hunter would travel many miles in search of the

Mermaids treasure – you couldn’t be seen…

A trick of the light ? perhaps .  But many a

Royal sent out their miners sailors and privateers

In search of your beauty

Navigating unchartered waters

Expecting to find you

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
