Pacific Blue

#CYW #PacificBlue

When i see you around

i’m reminded of warm summer days

and the waters of the ocean

lapping the sandy shore

Attracting the sportsmen

playing about for fun

in their watersports gear

Motorboats and Jetskis

tearing a white wave

through your dark blue waters

Your Colours more deep

than your Mediterranean cousin

but seamen still hang around your deep shades

hoping to land that one in a million catch

Drain

#Fowc #Drain

Delving down the plughole

revolving in a never ending spiral

as the water travels

in perpetual motion

night after night, down the pipes towards the cleaning plant

Brush

#SoCS #Brush

Stream of Consciousness Saturday Banner

Bringing a touch of colour to the paper

Reds through to violet as it passes through the brilliant white

Upmost care taken – not to cross any of the bands

Should they seep into the colour next door

Hairs of the brush given a good soak after the artwork’s complete

Morning Battle

#Morning #Battle #writeclub

Head stuck under the pillow

Feet reaching for the floor

Toes feeling the cold tingle of wood floor

and making a retreat for the duvet

Rumble of morning traffic

passing by the close by road

engaged in a battle to reach their destination

Formula 1 – but without the engine

Perhaps it was a good idea

Maybe it had to be done

But sticking your head under ice cold water

couldn’t be considered much fun

Taking Five

#Relaxation #Elephant #Watering hole

Pampering after a long day in the

african sunshine

catching rainbows in their

homemade bubbles

younger members of the family

directing streams of water towards

either mum or dad

reaction – a rockabye in either trunk while in

muddier spots – hippo’s are happy in their holes

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

Red Canoe

Red Canoe Enters

The bay of the Canal side

ready for paddles

Red Canoe Enters

Cutting through watery depths

Creating White Waves

Red Canoe Enters

Gliding past the floating buoys

in shades of orange

Midnight Blue

#CYW #MidnightBlue

Moonlight

Moonlight brings a spot of colour to nightime

it brings a touch of blue to a

dreamy scene…highlighting the

number of marshmallow clouds floating

in the sky around the moon

gravitating tween the moon and her reflection in the

half-light dispersed by the water of

the lake below

Lightning

Like a flash in the pan

It appears from the clouds

Going quickly through the atmosphere

Heading for the ground

Thunder noisily telling you that

not that far away – buckets of water will be falling soon

Illuminating that message in brief bursts

Night skies lit up in a spectacular display – it’s

Going to get wet – very soon….

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.
