Together we watch

sunrise over the mountain,

our world is brightened

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #27

come-dance-in-may

A silly young girl from Lynton

took a stroll across the meadow for fun

but her shorts were miniscule,

she took off her blouse to keep cool

now she has bites where she’d rather have none

Clad in matching tones

lovers fixed in cold embrace

their limbs entwined.

Shy beneath their parasol

whispering with the wind.

life, ephemeral,

from the corner of my eye

the spectre sighted,

she drifts, part of the forest

and yet leave men’s minds doubting

MLMM Photo Challenge #262

Nestled in his wings

yet unseen, the playful sprite,

plucks tunes from her hair.

Unknowing, all she hears is,

snare-drum stone midst cooing foam.

Sammiscribbles #Weekend writing prompt #104 Meander

Across the verdant fields and petal-painted meadows the crystal water plots it’s steady course. At times snake-like, writhing as if to swallow itself, each turn and meander eroding and undermining fragile banks. Only the destructive hand of man can stop the river in her unhurried seaward progress.

Sue Vincent’s marvellous #Thursday photo prompt: Monochrome #images #writephoto

timbered-building

Ebony trees and mottly skies

contrast the walls of snowdrop white

with latticed glass and black oak beams.

Magpies peer down from lofty eaves

as cross and chevrons guide our eyes

to telltale wisps from tall chimneys.

While on the lawn at close of day

badgers emerge to take the stage

witnessed from the trees, the deer.

While yet nervous, bowed heads feed,

poised ears, black nostrils, watchful eyes

each white rump signals silently.

MLMM’s Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille, April 24th 2019, something different

The Winter holly

festooned with blood red baubles.

Fast food in the snow.

A woodland moment #tanka

Woodpecker drumming,

above the leafy carpet,

butterflies feign love,

sunbeams make elevators

where mosquitoes choose to dance
