The fire in your eyes

and the ire in your answer

showed love’s bonds broken

Recapture innocence – tanka

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Cast aside the veil

life has placed over your sight

of the simpler things

discover delight and awe

in the world that surrounds you

SoCS 21/4/18 Spoke

Today’s post is inspired although I cannot call it fortuitous, for this morning I received the news that my elder brother has been diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease, thereby in my mind we lose one hero to that awful condition, i.e. Stephen Hawking and he is replaced by another. The connection lies in the speech, whereas my brother can no longer speak to any great degree, he spoke to me via a text, which certainly helped to cheer me up as phone calls had been a trial for some months now. All we can do is wait and see how the situation develops for him, his wife, children and grandchildren.

#SoCS March 10/18 ”so far.”

Have we come so far

from once humble beginnings

to arrogant fools

pursuing our blinkered goals

to spit on our Creator

#Weekly Tanka Prompt #Poetry Challenge – Week 82 – Treasure & Surprise

a peek in the box,

reluctantly opening

wounds and memories

of life not filled with treasure

but elements of surprise

#SoCS & #JusJoJan Daily Prompt, Jan. 27th, 2018

One of our earliest most memorable moments from watching wildlife programmes on the T.V. has got to be our introduction to the vast animal migrations across the African Plains. Wide expanses of bleak, dry, arid grasslands where the herds of wildebeest, antelope and zebras have exhausted the earth’s supply of fodder in one spot and have to follow the rains to another grazing area. A mass movement of animals that is now, sadly no longer to be seen due to the expansion of man’s domain and the diminshing resources left for the inigenous wildlife. In not too many years the only way we shall ever know what these migrations were like will be the remaining film footage. In case you aren’t sure to which piece of film I am referring the sight of a crocodile almost dragging a wildebeest into the water remains one of the most epic struggles of prey and predator witnessed and filmed by man. Once seen, never forgotten.

A frost-laden, still, bright morning on the high plateaus  of Exmoor when the silence is almost tangible. A moorsman’s idea of Heaven.
