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.

WHAT DO YOU SEE? MAY 7/2019

09816353-0EFB-44A6-B93A-A2166CAB9332“Oh no, not again, Mum, mum there’s something wrong with me,”

”What’s wrong Billy,” said his mother with a smile, “and why do you keep on going to that little tree and standing in front of it?”

”Well you remember when I was three, you stood me up to it and made that mark where my head was?”

”Yeeess, why, did it bother you?”

”Well you told me that that would be half my height I’d be when I grow up.”

”That’s right dear, that’s what they say. Why do you keep on checking it?”

”Well, mum, I’m getting smaller and smaller. I was a lot taller then, I’m never going to reach twice the height that mark is now.

Sammiscribbles #Weekend writing prompt #104 Meander

812B412E-88D2-4A36-9D65-9493C584763C

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.

Time To Write: Sentence Starter 46

D272BDA9-E1FF-43D5-B1EC-8E59C8F47941

”How did you find me?” The voice was nasal, high-pitched, whining and strangest of all, only in my mind. I had never before experienced the phenomenon commonly referred to as hearing voices. The only explanation I could tender for this occurrence was a sense of guilt and shame. The guilt I felt upon hearing my fears confirmed. I had just consumed a plate of pork chops. Chops obtained from the farm shop to which my home-reared pigs had recently been dispatched for slaughter and preparation for sale.

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.
