Dance

#Writephoto #Dance

Standing Stones (Image S.C. Vincent)


During certain times of the year

A number of revellers can be found

Notably dancing around the odd standing stone

Celebrating a harvest or maybe a god or two

Expecting good things in the months to come

Causeway

#Writephoto #Causeway

Causeway (Image by SC Vincent)

Created as a path across the water

a stretch of sand , gravel or road

usually gets wet when the tide comes in or

sea or river levels rise

especially after really bad storms

when that happens – its advisable to take

another route – or else

you’ll do more than get your feet wet!

Falling

#Writephoto #Cascade

From out of the clouds they come

a torrent of aqueous creatures

lunging towards the destination they

long to be at, following each other

in a race to be the first in the

navy blue waters

going over the edge

All Hallows Eve

A post in response to this weeks #Writephoto prompt from

Sue Vincent (at SCVincent.com)

The wicker man had a party

before the angels landed

The wicker man was worried

he thought he’d be reprimanded

See opposite the church ,

he’d built a great wood pyre

something for the ghouls and ghosts

to be inspired

The fire was lit, and around they did dance

taking the time to have fun for a chance

and they did all this before the sunrise

taking the angels by surprise

But up in the heavens, God he did Smile

and left the ghosts and ghouls play for a while

for instead on all saints day when they thought they would creep

they’d be back in their beds, sound asleep

#writephoto #otherworldly

When i was little, i used to go

Out with mum and dad , and take in the

Natural beauty of the coastal beaches and amassed hillsides nearby

Dipping a toe in cold water and

Enjoying a walk

Round the bays, looking for interesting pebbles

What’s beyond that window in the cliff face

Or hiding in that hole in the sand ?

Nobody knew – so we decided to look

Dad helping lift up pebbles – as

Excitable little people watched

Red coloured crabs moving sideways towards the sand

Bluebells

#writephoto #bluebells

Bluebell wood : Writephoto prompt by S.C Vincent

Brushing against the flowers in the carpet of blue

listen out for the chimes as you walk

usually, you wouldn’t hear them

except – on this occasion – there’s only the

birch trees – and they’re not saying much

even the squirrels are being quiet –

listening to the noise of the bluebells as they

lightly sway in the

spring breeze

Together

Sun bobbing down the horizon – photo provided by sue vincent

#Writephoto #together

They’re quite a team – the Sun and the Moon

On the whole they’re quite phenomenal

Giving the people that live on Mother earth, summat to look at

Each day they work either side of this blue jewel

The Sun giving light to one half while the Moon shines on the other

Helping fishermen land their catches, and Night workers to find their way home

Earth helping both by turning around

Rotating to catch the light

Wistful

#writephoto #wistful

A wistful scene

She returned to the moor

every hill a passing memory

veils of tears ran down her face

each time she remembered the angry rant

now she had thrown the ring back at him

she was returning to her cottage – in pieces

Crown

#writephoto #crown

Sat atop the hill of wheat

Circle of stone sits on throw of green

Ancient throne perhaps ?

Regal walk through a field of gold

A crowning glory

Before harvest time

I.

The creator dropped his tool again

Turning the clouds a different shade of blue

The Angels sighed – and then

They cried – and their tears

Turned towards the earth below

II.

The raindrops raced to reach the ground

some landed on the ragged rocks

some landed on fragrant fruits

whilst others joined their pals

in a race down the river

III

Rapidly rolling raindrops

Rotating , turning and foaming in

Revolving and lifting formations

Ripping and carving curves through the

Riverbank

IV

Construction – halted

Crafty beavers, otters and water-rats alike

Carefully watch the waters move so

Creation of a new home or dam can

Commence
