Fantasy Island

#Writephoto #Fantasy

For years that place in the middle of the sea was

a folly, a place for the well to do’s to admire from their

nice windows of the lakeside apartments

today, its so much more than this – it’s

a place where your imagination can go mad

somewhere you can land your boat and pitch a tent

you’ll think you’re back to your schooldays – some say its better

Darkness

#Writephoto #Darkness

Due to a change in Ra’s schedule

Arrangements were made to entertain the wildlife

Rainclouds danced about in the changing sky, but they

Kept on calling for the sun to stay about

Night time wasn’t fun for most of the animals in the fields

Exception ? those living under ground who would

Surface, during the dark hours for a

Snack or two.

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

Vista

#writephoto #vista

View from the top of this very big hill

is breathtaking (literally)

some say its a bit barmy climbing up all that way

to take a picture or admire the view – but

at the end of the day – its worth it (even better with a picnic)

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.

Catching the wind

#writephoto #soar

Riding the storm (Image SC Vincent)

Swifter than their feathered brethren – they

welcome the signs of a changing breeze

it means they’ll be off with their cousins the swallows

for some warm air , seeds and sunshine, whilst

taking occasional naps under leafy sunshades

Some might say they float in the air

when these birds have their wings stretched out

imminent signs of departure – remote

for they’ll need to fill their bellies

to have the energy to fly towards the warm sun

Locked away

#writephoto #Lock #Key

What lay beyond the hard wooden door

was anybody’s guess

secrets of a hidden passion

concealed by a key

and confidants of the secret

were careful not to spill

after cleaning up from the night before

Stacking

Stacked Stones – or Dwarvish Artworks ? (Image SC Vincent)

Up above the basalt hills

some creatures they were playing

they thought they’d be safe up high in the clouds

so they just carried on wi their stacking

Little flat and greyish rocks

stood on top of each other

one mountain dwarf enjoyed the fun

so he called on his brother

And together – they made something – oh so high

and other dwarves – round th’ hills – said they wanted to try

so they all joined in under cover of the cloud

and built something the village of dwarves were all proud

and to save the towers of which they had built

they left walkers message – down in the silt

“Artwork by mountain folk – please do enjoy”

“be careful around them – and do not destroy”

Veiled

#writephoto #veiled

Up on the hillside, who is that

hiding up in those misty hills

are we being over looked

by giant’s giving us chills ?

for out there in the distance

characters standing still

leaving us nothing but shadows

only caught by pencil or quill

Watchers (Image by SC Vincent)

Family sit on the bank,

they’ve been doing this for years

keeping an eye out for their neighbours

providing cover from the atlantic wind

for the plants, and sometimes an animal or bird

and giving shade to the pretties in pink

their reward for this task

watching the breakers

coming in to the shore
